Mr. Gu and the Evil Dog Lu [Entertainment Circle] - Chapter 5
Translated by Jimini Pabo
Edited by FairestLady
The female anchor took a look at the barrage of her live broadcast room and ordered herself a five-minute extra time card.
“Well….. husband Yan Yan, there are a lot of people in my live broadcast room who want to ask you something…”
Lu Yan could not speak when she was speaking, and regardless of whether Lu Yan agreed with her or not, she started reading her barrage.
The barrage was dominated by wild flirting, and the anchor searched for a long time before reluctantly finding a few askable questions.
“What will Yan Yan be working on next? How’s the filming progress of the new play “The Story of Concubine Xi”?”
The question was quite formal.
“Some people are asking about the brand of electric razor you usually use”
“A fan asked you.. Whether… you are wearing anything under your bath towel…”
Gu Xu paused, while his index finger was tapping on the table top.
“There is one last question, and the one that everyone is most concerned about-Yan Yan, is it grass fan?”
[T/N: Grass fan means that a person with a certain reputation has a physical relationship with a fan. To put it bluntly, it means literally, damn your own fans. In short the anchor is asking whether Lu Yan had a one-night stand with someone, presumably his fan.]
The girl blushed and immediately pressed the end button.
In fact, she didn’t expect Lu Yan’s answer when she asked those questions. The game was designed in such a way that it was possible for the players to quit the game whenever they wanted to. Hence, even though she might make Lu Yan leave, she could only follow the audience’s will. There were too many people in the live broadcast room and they all had used gifts to make her ask their questions.
By the time Lu Yan spoke, he had already put on a white shirt, his hair was slightly wet, and he was sitting on a large gray sofa.
His smile had not changed, and his voice was much softer. He calmly looked at the camera, acting gracefully as though he was accepting an interview with some program.
“The second part [ T/N: The second question abt his nxt work] has not been finalized yet.”
” I’ve finished acting my role in “The Story of Concubine Xi”. This role is considered as a role with least screen time, even though it was the male lead role.” Lu Yan narrowed his eyes and smiled. Along with his casual outfit, he seemed to be surrounded in a warm light.
“As for the electric razor…” he said as he grabbed the electric razor from the side and shook it in front of the camera. “I don’t know what brand it is. My assistant sent it, and the package was removed when I recieved it.”
After answering these three questions, he put down the things in his hand and suddenly leaned in front of the camera. His handsome face was horizontally in front of the screen. Nowadays many male celebrities would put on makeup. Some male celebrities had benefited from eyeshadows and eyebrow pencils. But due to these there was a big difference between their before and after makeup looks.
Lu Yan had just taken a shower, and there were even some drops of water on his face. It was obviously his natural face, but it was no different from his face on screen. His skin was really good, and people couldn’t find any flaw even at such a close distance.
“Under my towel,” he lowered his voice, somewhat inexplicably sexy, “- of course, I can not tell you.”
“As for the last question…… If you ask this question in a live broadcast, you will be asked to leave the broadcasting room.”
[T/N: LY means that they will be banned by the moderators]
After he spoke, he smiled again and waved at the camera: “I have something to do, so I will leave the game first. Also don’t report me or else I will be banned. Thank you.”
Then he reached out and pressed the end speech button.
Immediately, the avatar of the eighth player showed the two characters “left” -Lu Yan turned off the APP.
Finally, the barrage exploded again. As for to what extent… the female anchor’s screen was completely swept by gifts and comments.
”Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh My Yan Yan is so handsome that I can’t take it anymore. I’m going to drop another gift for the anchor. Thank you for letting me see my Yan Yan. “
“Anchor, why didn’t you ask him when he will update his Weibo?”
“I have become his fan, I’m gonna watch all his series’ “
“Kneel to Lu Yan’s beauty”
After Lu Yan had left the game, Gu Xu also quit the live broadcast room.
He put the tablet aside and lit a cigarette. The white smoke from the cigarette lingered around him.
During the day, Lu Yan was calm and indifferent.
But the Lu Yan at night…
A word suddenly appeared in Gu Xu’s mind – beautiful
[ T/N: In the original context it says, 色香味美 which literally means color, fragrance, and beauty. And this is usually used to describe a delicious and tasty food. But since it didn’t fit in the english translation im going to go with beautiful.]
Gu Xu chuckled. He didn’t expect to see Lu Yan’s two contrasting sides on the first day of acquaintance. It was really… very interesting.
He slowly spit out a smoke ring, chuckled and pressed the call button. Xu Fei came knocking a moment later.
Gu Xu pinched out his cigarette and said in a low voice, “ Begin to prepare for the acquisition of Dou Mao TV.”
“Okay, I’ll make arrangements right away.” Xu Fei finished speaking and prepared to go out.
“Wait.” Gu Xu stopped him, his eyes rested on the land development plan in his hand, “Go and buy some dinner for me.”
Xu Fei was taken aback. It was rare to see his boss eat dinner: ” …What do you want to eat?”
“Buy whatever you like .” Gu Xu’s mouth twitched slightly, “Suddenly I got hungry.”
Xu Fei calmly said: “Okay, I’ll go buy it right away.”
Lin An was sitting in the passenger seat. Watching the news in his hand, he kept slurping in his mouth: “Oh, your bath towel, the air-conditioning wind is blowing it off, right?”
Lu Yan leaned in the back seat of the car, closed his eyes, and ignored him.
Lin An said again: “One really has to say, tut, look at this pectoral muscle, look at this abdominal muscle, look at this mermaid line, there are still water drops on it — impressive. Lu Yan, I didn’t know you had any talent in this field? In a few days I’ll bring you to shoot a cover for TAXS magazine and let’s refresh their highest sales volume.”
TAXS is a well-known magazine in China, and the sales volume was very high. The main reason is that the cover of the magazine has large-scale photos of various stars, who all have been on the verge of being banned for years.
Lu Yan asked earnestly, “Lin An, how long has it been since you got a beating?”
Lin An ignored the threat in his words and continued to flip through Weibo happily.
He really didn’t have to worry. Other artists would have to buy to be on the hot search everyday, but his family’s artist had to just play a game and yet can still top the hot searches.
Suddenly, Lin An snorted and said with a burst of laughter: “Fuck, Lu Yan, your video has been blocked by the Weibo administrator!”
Lu Yan: …
He looked up calmly and took out his cell phone.
The first popular article on Weibo is a video forwarded by a big V. Looking at the text content, it should be a video made after the game was recorded on the screen that day. When Lu Yan clicked it to open it, there was only one paragraph left in the video, written in white words on the black background
[T/N: In weibo a big V denotes that the account is a celebrity account.]
“This video has been blocked by the administrator because the content involved violations.”
There is an animation of a little blue man squatting and crying behind.
As if !
In fact, Lu Yan didn’t care about appearing half-naked in front of the camera. He had previously taken a bunch of those half-naked hard photos . In that group of photos, he had played the role of a hard-core national rescuer. His naked upper body was covered with dust, blood and scars.He was moving a big stone hard to save the little girl buried under the stone. Those photos had won many awards later.
He had also filmed sex scenes in TV dramas, showing his upper body, that is, he wore a pair of white trousers on his lower body, and most of them were hidden in the quilt, though it was not as imaginative as the half-falling bath towel.
But this time, the video of his half-naked and half-wet body was circulated everywhere, and it was also blocked by Weibo, which he thought was strange.
Many artists’ microblogs were managed by the company, but Lu Yan’s was not. Although he rarely posted in weibo, his every post was all written by himself and sent out by himself with pictures.
He didn’t think that he was that popular, it is a matter of peace of mind to be sought after, and it is a blessing to be loved by others.
Because he was busy with announcements, there were few channels for him to communicate with his fans, and Weibo was one of them. So when he wasn’t popular, he didn’t hand over his Weibo account to the company until now. Star Entertainment didn’t even have his Weibo password before.
After thinking about it, he clicked on the icon of the phone APP and clicked the cross in the upper right corner of the Werewolf APP.
A dialog box popped up: “Do you want to delete ‘Werewolve’?”
He took a screenshot and then posted it on Weibo.
[Lu Yanv: [/smile][/bye][with picture]]
Lu Yan has more than 40 million fans on Weibo. Hence just a few minutes after the Weibo was posted, he received thousands of messages.
“How can you delete it as soon as I downloaded it?! Don’t, let’s have a passionate encounter, husband!”
“Let me casually ask, baby, do you have any bath towels you don’t use? Can you sell me one?”
“Don’t be afraid honey, I helped you with the mosaic! [with picture]”
Lu Yan clicked on the photo and saw that the mosaic was good-but why mosaic his bath towel?
What’s even more annoying is that several blue V (*corporate certification Weibo) replied to this Weibo.
“Xiandi Towel v: Thank you Lu Yan for using the bath towels made by our company. Xiandi towels are fresh and intimate every day. Welcome to buy them! [/Shy]”
“Dilip v: The electric shaver Lu Yan used in the video is the latest electric shaver of our company, the model is rh-014. Order today for free delivary~[/smile]”
Lin An suddenly poked Lu Yan’s head and asked him: ” Didn’t Chen Jing say it would take some time to start shooting? why did you ask you to go to the meeting today?”
Lu Yan said lightly, “I don’t have a long schedule. All I need now is a role that hasn’t been decided yet. I don’t have much of a part. I can look for it while filming.”
Lin An: “Okay, I won’t go with you today. A newcomer is coming to report to me later.”
Lu Yan sneered, “You’re finally not clinging to me.”
Lin An replied with a smile: ” You have fallen out of favor with me.”
“How about the newcomer?” Although he just had an argument with Lin An, Lu Yan was still concerned.
Since his debut, Lin An has had only one artist under him. At that time, Lin an was still a fledgling agent,so it can be said that he had placed all the bets on Lu Yan.
Of course, it was on the right one.
After ending the contract with Xingyu, Lu Yan had offered to let Lin An take a few new artists. Lin An signed along with him with Mingsheng. There were many new people in Mingsheng.. Although Lin An only took Lu Yan with him, the results were obvious to all. The vacant newcomers in Mingsheng can be said to be left to him.
“He’s okay. His name is Yun Anqing. He’s also an actor.He has only played as cannon fodders.” Speaking of this, Lin An smiled, ” Just like you when you started.”
The car arrived at the destination, and Lu Yan got off and answered him with a smile: ” Then, you can continue to cultivate and develop them. I’m off now.”
Assistant Xiao Liu hurriedly got out of the car. It was rare for Lin An not to accompany Lu Yan, so Xiao Liu would follow him for the day.
By the time he entered the conference room, it was already full of people.
When everyone saw him, they all greeted him amicably. Chen Jing was sitting in the main seat, discussing something with the deputy director.
Lu Yan looked around, several actors looked familiar, although their popularity was not too high, they were all from some strong acting schools. It could be seen that Chen Jing did spend a lot of thought this time.
Chen Jing: ” Coming here?”
Lu Yan nodded.
Chen Jing took a sip of tea: “wait a minute, there is no one.”… “
Before the words were finished, the door of the meeting room was opened again.
A woman walked in unhurriedly, with big waves, a thin waist and a good face, with a pair of big sunglasses on her chest and big red lips, followed by two small assistants.
The choice of the heroine was decided the day before yesterday.
The choice of the heroine was decided the day before yesterday.
Lu Yan went to other provinces yesterday to cut the ribbon for the brand new store for endorsement, and just returned to City B. out of trust in Chen Jing’s vision, he only knew that the heroine had settled down and did not ask in detail.
Unexpectedly, Chen Jing had found Shi Qing.
