Everything at the filming scene was carried out in an orderly manner.
Yun Shishi and Yan Bingqing's scene was set at the basement.
Alas, at this moment, it was deadly silent on set.
Everyone looked with dumbfounded eyes at the two women surrounded by the camera crew.
A loud slap echoed about.
Yan Bingqing swung her hand heavily onto Yun Shishi's cheek.
With almost her entire being's strength, together with her imposing manner, a crisp sound resonated from the collision of the palm and the cheek nearly to the whole set. Everyone watched, open-mouthed, what was happening.
Caught off guard, Yun Shishi was wide-eyed in shock from this merciless slap, unable to regain her senses fully.
The air was nearly stifling in its stillness.
On the sidelines, Mu Xi was so badly shocked her mouth hung agape.
The actress withdrew her hand and stared at the newbie viciously, crying out hysterically, "Yin Xiachun, why did you return?! Won't you let me off, or won't you let your brother off?!"
Her mournful and despairing voice pervaded the still basement.
It was impactfully mind-blowing.
The actress, at this moment, was indubitably into her role.
Yun Shishi looked at her in shock, taking a long while to regain her senses.
She narrowed her eyes at her; she had apparently underestimated this woman's viciousness.
Vicious. This actress was utterly vicious.
Her silence stretched for a minute, and her lines stayed unuttered. Lin Fengtian's gaze left the monitor to fall on Yan Bingqing with cold suspicion.
He stood up and inquired, "Yun Shishi, are you in the wrong state, or have you forgotten your lines? Why didn't you read aloud your lines?"
She pursed her lips and smiled stiffly. "My apologies, Director Lin; I was distracted for a bit!"
He got angry and frustrated, having expected better from her. "Distracted?! You got distracted during filming? You'd better be more professional! It's work right now, understand?! Stay focus!"
Her assistant was wide-eyed at this, finding it unbelievable.
What was wrong with him?
He was a big director; did he not see it?
The actress had just deliberately humiliated her artiste!
This section of the plot was about Yin Xiachun's return to the country and entrance at the same company as her brother. Unfortunately, at the basement, she bumped into Yan Bingqing's character, Lin Hena, her brother's fiancée.
She was a childhood friend of the siblings whom she grew up with. Coming from the wealthy Lin family, which had close ties with the Yin, and having feelings for Yin Dongyu, she naturally eventually became the man's fiancée.
Be it her rebellious phase or her adulthood, she had always been devoted to him.
Regrettably, the man had always been deeply in love with his sister. Even though his sister was abroad, he still could not give up his feelings for her.
Lin Hena knew very well that she did not have a place in the man's heart. Just as the two were about to be engaged, the man's sister returned to the country. When the two coincidentally met each other, this man's fiancée lost her cool and questioned her motive for returning to the country.
In general, in movies, for plots which involved slapping, all made use of angle and positioning – montage techniques where one hand mimicked slapping and another held one's face sans reservation.
Acting out the appearance of a slap.
