“That’s why it’s important to prioritize taking care of one’s self at all times. First, nourish the body. Second, get enough sleep; I sleep early at night whenever I don’t have filming. Third, increase water intake. Of course, I’m not encouraging buying isotonic drinks here. I, myself, usually drink tea brewed from wolfberries and logans, replenishing my body from the inside out. Fourth and last, maintain a work-life balance; doing all these can maintain one’s radiant yet youthful complexion.
“Hm… There’s actually one other important point!”
“I was born a beauty!”
“Ha ha ha…”
The filming of the program went smoothly and successfully.
That very night, the show’s ratings had increased by two percent, which was considered a huge breakthrough when compared to their past ratings. That episode topped the ratings of other variety shows.
At the end of the program, the terms ‘Yun Shishi’s bare face’ and ‘Shishi, the Bare-faced Goddess’ soon topped the search rankings.
Many netizens expressed their utmost envy and jealousy after seeing her face without makeup.
As they marveled at the bare-faced beauty, countless female netizens posted comments on her Weibo page, asking for her secret to maintaining such beautiful complexion.
The more astonishing thing was that she received plenty of endorsement offers from cosmetic and beauty brands after that episode was aired.
Qin Zhou, again, had successfully clinched his charge with several cosmetic brands’ offers.
Of course, this came much later.
Meanwhile, ‘The Green Apple’ remained firmly on the lead of the box office. Even though its growth was not as sharp as before, the movie’s ticket sales steadily and gradually increased. Although it momentarily lost its spot to the newly launched American blockbuster on New Year’s Day, it very quickly regained its place at the top in the days after.
The economic benefits the movie reaped were incalculable.
The hot, trending movie led to the sharp rise in Yun Shishi’s net worth. Even though showbiz was an ever-changing industry, where artists would soon be phased out if there was no fresh news about them, her explosive shot to fame was a rare phenomenon.
On this night where ‘The Green Apple’ was just several millions shy of breaking the box-office record for the most-watched Chinese movie, Lu Jinyu called for a gathering in a private room of a pub.
Mu Yazhe’s group of buddies was already there by the time he arrived with his woman.
Everyone stood up and respectfully greeted the couple.
She smilingly said, “No need to be so formal; just call me ‘Shishi’.”
It feels somewhat weird to be addressed as ‘sis-in-law’.
“That won’t do. ‘Shishi’ is our chief’s pet name for you. We don’t dare cross the line and call you that!” refused Jiang Shen half-jokingly.
Lu Jinyu, however, begged to differ. “I prefer calling you ‘Shishi’; it sounds better and friendlier.”
He received an icy glare from his chief as soon as he said that, which made him shudder in fear.
Jiang Shen immediately started heckling at him. “See; I knew it! Jinyu, can you see the chief’s murderous gaze? You’d better obediently stick to ‘sis-in-law’, instead.”
The woman shot her man a petulant look. ” Hey, what are you doing?”
Jiang Shen chuckled and teasingly said, “Can’t you tell, sis-in-law? Chief is a wife-protecting maniac. He’ll get jealous if we address you by your first name.”
Yun Shishi: “…”
“How unexpected! Chief is usually such an aloof person, but whenever sis-in-law is involved, he will turn into a jealous lover.”
“That isn’t aloofness. He’s just a man show—outwardly cold but inwardly deep and passionate.”
The man sent an icy look in their direction as a warning.
“Stop cracking jokes about the chief. He’s about to get angry.”
