In a few days, Jiang Zheng would set off for the filming of “Dongnu Kingdom” in western Sichuan. Thinking that it would take several months for her to shoot the drama, Chen Jinjiao and Jiang Ran both shouted to accompany her for the filming. Jiang Zheng didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. The last time the two of them accompanied her on filming, her black history immediately added a legend of being bisexual and having double gold masters.
After coaxing left and coaxing right, only then were the two bosses appeased.
Jiang Ran called Han Yi to the next courtyard.
In the long-lasting dry landscape, the two of them smoked a cigarette each.
Jiang Ran’s expression was rather melancholy in the thin smoke, “I heard that Ji Muye is fighting for the male No. 1 in “Dongnu Kingdom”. We have already talked about it. Does Zhengzheng know about this?”
Han Yi took a puff of cigarette, and the wrinkles on his forehead deepened, “She doesn’t know yet.”
The male lead in “Dongnu Kingdom” was suddenly revealed to be cheating, regardless of the relationship, his character setting had collapsed, and he was forced to resign. The vacant position was being stared at by many male stars. After all, the heroine of this big production was Jiang Zheng, and there was meat and soup to follow. What’s more, Jiang Zheng had a strong fan base and high market recognition, so it was a good deal no matter what. It was just that Ji Muye had the highest winning rate among these candidates.
This was troublesome.
The reason why Han Yi dragged on and didn’t tell Jiang Zheng up to now was mainly because he was afraid that she would become his career fan again.
Jiang Ran could make a point of it, but he was afraid that his sister would cut him after knowing it.
The two slowly exhaled at the same time, feeling very complicated.
“Why do you two look so sad?” Jiang Zheng held a bunch of hydrangea flowers and looked at them with a smile.
Jiang Ran caught a glimpse of his sister, hurriedly put out the cigarette, and glared at Han Yi sideways, “Look at you, asking me to smoke with you.”
Han Yi suddenly felt that the cigarette in his mouth was not fragrant. Who was forcing who to smoke?
Jiang Ran said with a smile, “What else can I worry about, brother? I’m worried that I won’t see you for a long time.”
Han Yi also put out the cigarette and said, “I’m worried, what would happen if I didn’t take care of you. Well, Mr. Jiang would have me buried alive.”
Jiang Ran: “…”
Jiang Zheng smiled and said, “Brother, I heard that the spring in western Sichuan is very beautiful, full of cherry blossoms and pines, I will show it to you live. Okay?”
Jiang Ran laughed immediately, “Okay, okay!”
Han Yi turned his face away and didn’t want to see the scene of Jiang Ran’s ruthless personality setting collapse.
In the evening, Chen Jinjiao called Jiang Zheng to the room, her usually lonely and estranged face was filled with a rare kindness, and she suddenly burst into tears when she saw her daughter, “Zhengzheng, it’s mother’s fault that she was too busy and didn’t take good care of you.”
Although everyone avoided talking about Jiang Zheng’s amnesia these days, all of them felt bad.
Jiang Zheng was startled, and quickly hugged Chen Jinjiao, coaxing her in a low voice.
Chen Jinjiao restrained her emotions and said with a choked voice, “I don’t know when your memory will be restored?”
Jiang Zheng shrugged. She was just a little confused at first, but now she had accepted it calmly.
“You’re 23 years old, and you’re still not mature,” Chen Jinjiao sighed, “I don’t know how you would shoot love scenes?”
Jiang Zheng, who was stabbed in the sore spot by the old lady, took a deep breath, “It all depends on the brain.”
Chen Jinjiao stretched out her finger and tapped her forehead, “Do you like Ji Muye?”
“Yes. No matter how he grows, he is always on my aesthetic point.” Jiang Zheng explained frankly.
Chen Jinjiao narrowed her eyes, “But your liking is not exclusive or possessive. It’s not the kind of liking between men and women. Right.”
Jiang Zheng tilted her head and thought about it, “I’m just chasing him…”
After speaking, she felt wrong, and hurriedly said: “I just fan him.”
Chen Jinjiao paused, and suddenly smiled meaningfully.
My daughter has a 23-year-old body with an 18-year-old’s memory, her chance of falling in love should be 0%.
On the day of her departure to West Sichuan, Han Yi solemnly told Jiang Zheng that Muye would participate as the male lead of “Dongnu Kingdom”.
Jiang Zheng was stunned for a long time. It stood to reason that Ji Muye should focus on the film market now, why did he suddenly want to act in this TV series?
She took on the role of “Dongnu Kingdom”, firstly, because the screenwriter of this play liked her very much. Before the script was released, she had decided to invite her to play the leading role. Second, because the script was written very well, and the plot characters were all well-crafted. Before she lost her memory, she arranged a shooting schedule for this drama early.
Jiang Ran sat aside and said coldly, “Why is he joining in the fun?”
Jiang Zheng glared at her brother and looked at Han Yi.
Han Yi coughed twice, “Ji Muye is in the limelight right now, and it stands to reason that there is no shortage of filming offers.” He also couldn’t understand why this person insisted on participating in this drama. “Dongnu Kingdom” was a heroine-centric drama, and the setting background was a matriarchal Kingdom where women were respected more than men. Although the plot was inspired by real historical events, it belonged to marginal history after all. It was not as popular as the current Ming and Qing costume dramas.
The producer also spoke very politely. If Jiang Zheng did not agree with Ji Muye’s role, there was still room for a different choice for the male lead. But if Jiang Zheng really refused, wouldn’t it seem like she was unreasonable.
Jiang Zheng pursed her lower lip. Although acting opposite Ji Muye was challenging her limit, she at least explained one thing, so she just smiled, “It seems that my brainwaves and brother Mu’s brainwaves are on the same frequency.”
Han Yi snorted, “You mean that you and Ji Muye have a good relationship.” It’s a shame that he thought Jiang Zheng had stopped being Ji Muye’s fan two days ago. It was all an illusion.
Jiang Zheng nodded.
Jiang Ran snorted, raised his eyes and started to stare at Han Yi again.
Han Yi frowned and said with difficulty: “First of all, it is the first time that Zhengzheng and Ji Muye are working together as leads, so this drama is likely to be popular before it is broadcast.”
Jiang Ran: “?”
“Secondly, Ji Muye’s acting skills are online, so it would not be a hindrance. And I heard that after the makeup trial, the image of the male No. 1 is more in line with the original work.”
Jiang Ran: “??”
“Finally, it is well known that… Zhengzheng has unlimited potential. Zhengzheng will open her bright moment again.”
Jiang Ran immediately walked away.
Han Yi was extremely aggrieved and said to Jiang Zheng, “As heaven and earth is my witness, I’m telling the truth.”
Jiang Zheng patted him on the shoulder, “It’s okay. My brother just can’t think about it for a while. It’s good to let him be angry. “
Han Yi wanted to cry. Big Brother Jiang would only be angry with his sister for a while, but it would be like a lifetime for him.
The crew of “Dongnu Kingdom” collectively went to Xiaojin County, western Sichuan, where they would be filming, and first conducted a week-long script reading. Before the closed reading, the screenwriters, directors, and producers had discussed the plot characters with the main actors in a small area. This time, everyone, including storyboard cameramen, costume props, etc., participated in the script, and strived to perfect the script before the official start of shooting.
The hotel they were staying in was located in an alpine meadow in the northern part of Xiaojin County. Looking around, the snow-capped mountains and clouds were extremely shocking, and the Dadu River flew through the deep valleys. The building was built on a cliff, and the huge glass wall captured the color of the top of the clouds.
The first time the crew read the script was in the cliff-side conference room. At eight in the morning, everyone came one after another and greeted each other. The screenwriter Yu Juan was known as a gold medal screenwriter, with a very high status in the industry, and was pushed to the main seat by everyone. Director Xing Weimin glanced at his watch. Except for Jiang Zheng and Ji Muye, everyone else had arrived.
In the elevator, Jiang Zheng frowned and looked at herself in the elevator mirror, “Han Yi, do you think my clothes are too ordinary?”
Han Yi had black lines on his face. Someone got up two hours early this morning, tried on more than a dozen sets of clothes, and only went downstairs after a long delay. Wasn’t it because of that person surname Ji?
He took two deep breaths and replied professionally: “The clothes are ordinary, but the appearance is not ordinary.”
Jiang Zheng: “…” She originally planned to put on makeup and wear a beautiful dress to go downstairs to read the script, but later she felt that it was too much. So, she finally decided to wear a thin white sweater with a pullover and jeans and white shoes, and in fact, she looked very refreshing. But now she thought, didn’t it look a little too plain?
Before she could regret it, as soon as the elevator door opened, she saw Ji Muye coming from the other direction. Jing Meini following closely.
Han Yi secretly cried out. Ji Muye was also wearing a white shirt and jeans today, Mamma Mia, did they really have the same frequency of brain waves? Wearing a “couple’s outfit” on the first day of meeting??
Jing Meini also found out, the corners of her mouth twitched, while she looked speechless.
Jiang Zheng straightened her back, walked over without hesitation, and nodded to Ji Muye and smiled.
Ji Muye smiled and said, “Teacher Jiang, long time no see.”
Jiang Zheng said calmly, “That’s it. It’s been half a month since we last met at the Beijing Auditorium.”
Ji Muye winked his eyes. “Teacher Jiang’s memory is really good.”
The two of them tacitly did not mention the surprise encounter at the premiere of Qinglong Ancient Town two days ago.
Jing Meini: “?” I always feel that something is wrong.
Han Yi: “?” What did I miss?
The four greeted each other and headed to the conference room.
The male and female protagonists appeared at the same time, and everyone couldn’t hide their surprise.
Fans of these two people often tore each other, and there had been several scandals between them. Although Jiang Zheng clarified in public, today the two were dressed like lovers again, which was thought-provoking.
Jiang Zheng and Ji Muye nodded to the crowd respectively, and then sat face to face.
Director Xing Weimin said with a smile: “Thank you all for being here on time. On the first day, the script reading officially starts. First of all, I would like to ask the screenwriter Teacher Yu to introduce the historical background and story context of the script.”
