"Yan Bingqing is considered as a big shot, though."
"Big shot in scandals." The editor snuffed out his cigarette and mocked. "She's merely packaged by the PR team behind her! Making a hype of topics, grabbing of exposure rates… There's really nothing to say about her stratagem! While she's got a really beautiful face, she's got zero skills in the acting department, and that's her Achilles' heel. On top of not having a flair for acting, she still likes to change the script without permission. If not for her strong backer, which let her be parachuted into the production team, which also prevents Director Lin from kicking her out, he'd never cast her at all!"
"How about Yun Shishi?" That little assistant was angry on behalf of her master.
She was bent on using Yun Shishi as a measuring stick.
Hearing that, the editor winked at her. "Don't you know that Yun Shishi is now the goddess in the production team, you can't anyhow mention her!"
"Why not? Does she really think that she's a big shot now? She's merely a newbie, why can't we mention her?" The little assistant was indignant as she sneered.
"You don't know this! I reckon she has a bit of background. I have been following the director for nine years now and have never once seen him take such care of any actor before. You look at Gu Xingze; when he first started acting in Director Lin's film, he was also harshly scolded! Yun Shishi is different, of course. This newbie has acting skills and potential. Even her appearance on screen is better than Yan Bingqing's. In the director's eyes, she's definitely a piece of treasure!"
"What do you think of Yan Bingqing's acting skills when compared to Yun Shishi's, then?"
The editor jeered. He was too lazy to make more comments and only spat, "Are they even comparable?"
The little assistant returned to the waiting room, reported her findings to Yan Bingqing, and exaggerated it a bit.
This maddened the artiste so much she flipped the table on the spot.
That was too much!
What did he mean by a white lotus?!
What did he mean by a vase with poor acting skills?
What did he mean by they could not be compared?
That was far too much!
She was livid. She could not wait to tear that b*tch apart and spare her eyes from seeing that eyesore fluttering in front of her the whole day!
She had just debuted but could already be in Director Lin's film. Furthermore, as a main cast, did she feel very smug?
It was not only these that she hated about her.
Just exactly how lucky could that woman get? Besides the famed director's support, she also had Qin Zhou working for her.
In these past two days, her behind-the-scenes cuts were trending on Weibo.
Her behind-the-scenes live in a school uniform continuously topped the search rankings.
Using a classic saying to describe it, the 'Yin Xiachun' character of hers fulfilled the fantasies of every party involved.
Even the author of the novel retweeted that Yun Shishi was the forever youthful Yin Xiachun in the flesh.
To generate hype on her, Qin Zhou pooled his own resources to produce a steady stream of articles for several days.
In his articles, he was all praises for this artiste under his care, and he also did not forget to gain leverage by stepping over Yan Bingqing and Yang Mi.
Qin Zhou's packaging and hype-generating skills were all topnotch.
Yan Bingqing's PR team was not to be outdone and sent out articles of theirs to fight back, but they could not beat the man in this field no matter what they did.
This was simply because this top-star manager had powerful connections with almost all the mainstream media.
The gold resources accumulated from Gu Xingze's ten years of acting were almost all spent on Yun Shishi now.
They were generously spent as well.
This made many people jealous.
