S1 Episode 6 – As If It Were a Lifetime Ago

Listen here

[00:00]

Niu Tao
Cen Feng, don’t be nervous. There’s no need to be. Sit.

Cen Feng
Say what you have to say.

Niu Tao
Erm… People from Chenxing have come to see you? Rejecting them was a good thing. Can they afford to give you what Zhongtian can? Huh? So… The agency has a new talent manager, Manager Ma. You know him right? He thinks you have great potential. See when you have time. He wants to see you.

Cen Feng
Hmph.

Niu Tao
What’re you laughing for? I’m doing all this for your own good.

Cen Feng
If he’s not afraid to die, then go ahead and have him come see me.

[01:35]

Trainee A
Hello, who are you looking for?

Xiaoxiao
I’m not looking for anyone. These are cold drinks for all of you.

Trainee A
Instructor, someone’s brought us some drinks!

Dance Instructor
Huh? Who’s it from?

Xiaoxiao
It’s the company’s gesture. I’ll take my leave now.

Dance Instructor
Oh, okay. Everyone come over to get one.

Trainee A
Woah! The company’s too nice!

Trainee B
Ugh, it’s so sweet.

Trainee C
It’s good enough we get drinks. Since when have they ever been so good to us?

Trainee A
Hey, was that young woman a new staff member? I’ve never seen her before.

Trainee C
I haven’t either. You go ask.

Trainee B
Hey, hey, hey! I asked about it! Other practice rooms didn’t get this treatment. Only we did!

Trainee A
What the fuck. That woman is Zhao Jinjin’s assistant!

Trainee B
Which Zhao Jinjin?

Trainee A
Who else can it be? The nation’s first crush! Didn’t she recently partner up with Brother An for some dancing variety show? They’re in the practice room near the elevator choreographing.

Trainee C
But why would Zhao Jinjin buy us drinks? Don’t tell me she’s got her eyes on one of us.

Cen Feng
What company is she under?

Trainee C
Chenxing, of course!

Cen Feng
…Chenxing.

Trainee C
What’re you doing? Even if you’re not going to drink the milk tea you don’t need to take it back. You can let me drink it…

Trainee B
Hey, what’s he wanna do?

Trainee C
Who knows?


[02:58]

Cen Feng
Tell Zhao Jinjin to come out.

Xiaoxiao
You… Who are you?

Xu Zhaixing
Big Brother? Why is he here?!

Cen Feng
Tell her to come out.

Zhao Jinjin
Who’s calling for me? If you need something then come in and say it. Man, I’m so tired.

Xiaoxiao
Sister, You should probably come out for a bit.

Zhao Jinjin
Geez, what is it?

Cen Feng
Go back and tell your CEO Xu not to use these petty tricks anymore.

Zhao Jinjin
What?

Xu Zhaixing
I’m a goner. I’m so close to screwing up!

Zhao Jinjin
What’s going on?

Xiaoxiao
Young Miss.

Zhao Jinjin
Oh… Our leader doesn’t have any other intentions. It’s just that the weather’s hot, practice is tiring so the cold drinks were bought to let you cool off. She’s always been good to everyone under her. I hope you don’t misunderstand her.

Cen Feng
There’s no need. Don’t buy it anymore.

Zhao Jinjin
Hey, what’s wrong with you? I… Hey! Huh? Young Miss?

Xu Zhaixing
No cursing him!

Zhao Jinjin
Who is he? He acts so arrogantly just because he’s handsome. Tch.

Xiaoxiao
My god. I was scared to death just then. Young Miss, you seriously have great foresight. There really aren’t any male celebrities in the entertainment industry who have such a cold, cool and ruthless personality. Put him out there and he’ll sweep a bunch of young girls off their feet for sure.

Zhao Jinjin
Young Miss, if we can’t bite and move this sturdy piece of bone, we’ll swap it for another one. I hear Zhongtian has a lot of trainees. Don’t be discouraged. You can do it! Strive to for things to go smoother the further you progress on the path of scraping away at other people’s wall foundations.

Xu Zhaixing
Other than him, no one else will do.

Zhao Jinjin
Alright then. Hm… He is great. If you really want sign him with us, then just reveal your identity then go and ask Zhongtian’s boss for him. He’s just a trainee anyway. Worst case scenario, exchange him with some opportunities and give Zhongtian some benefits.

Xu Zhaixing
No!

Zhao Jinjin
Why not?

Xu Zhaixing
If Cen Feng finds out I’m from Chenxing, he’ll definitely think I approached him with an ulterior motive…

Zhao Jinjin
Geez, this won’t do and that won’t either. Just what do you want to do?

Xu Zhaixing
If I knew then would I still be here? Never mind. We’ll talk about this in the future. I’m going to go out and walk around. …Just what should I do? Huh? Why’s Big Brother back again? I need to hide.

Yin Chang
Who?!

Xu Zhaixing
Ow ow ow.

Yin Chang
Are you okay?

Xu Zhaixing
Yin Chang?

Xu Zhaixing
What’s going on. I remember even though Yin Chang wasn’t as good as Big Brother in looks or skills, but he won in terms of hair, makeup and style creating his dominant aura. It attracted countless fans. That’s why he had the most popularity and the best opportunities out of everyone in the group. But, why does the way he dresses seem so much like the way Big Brother does right now?

Xu Zhaixing
Oh, I’m okay. I’m fine. Thank you.

Yin Chang
Oh, it’s you. I thought someone slipped in here again to secretly take photos.

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? You know me?

Yin Chang
You’re Sister Jinjin’s assistant, right? Who in the agency doesn’t know that? Little sister, I saw you just hit your head. Do you want to go to the infirmary to have it checked?

Xu Zhaixing
I’m fine. Oh! I suddenly remembered Sister Jinjin’s looking for me. I need to get to back right now!

Yin Chang
Take it easy. Don’t bump into anything again.

Xu Zhaixing
Haha, okay. Sure.

Xu Zhaixing
Something’s wrong. He’s not actually imitating Cen Feng is he?! Now that I think about it carefully, when Big Brother’s pinky was stepped on and crushed, I suspected everyone in the group other than Yin Chang. It’s exactly because their styles were completely different. Now it seems it might have been… Nope, don’t.

Xu Zhaixing
Be calm.


[06:40]

Yin Chang
The results of that encounter just then was pretty good. Those idiots are all trying to get close to Zhao Jinjin, but don’t even think about how could she possibly even give them a glance. You’re better off working on the people around her.

Niu Tao
Hey, Cen Feng. Wait a sec…

Yin Chang
Manager Niu? It’s me.

Niu Tao
Oh, it’s you. I thought you were Cen Feng. Mm, not bad. Little Chang, how has training been going recently?

Yin Chang
Pretty good.

Niu Tao
I just happen to be looking for you to talk about something. Little Chang, the agency is preparing to choose debut positions next year. You know that, right?

Yin Chang
Er… I do.

Niu Tao
The new talent manager, Manager Ma, thinks you have great potential. If you have the desire to debut, find some time to go see Manager Ma. How about that? No rush. Once you’ve given it consideration, come and find me. Okay?

Yin Chang
I understand, Manager Niu. …Since I can’t get it through efforts, then choosing a shortcut…wouldn’t be unfair, right?


[08:15]

Assistant Yi
Manager Li, I’m very grateful for this.

Manager Li
Oh, we’re in the critical period of Zhongtian and Chenxing’s cooperation right now. Such a small matter isn’t considered much.

Assistant Yi
We’ve always been very aware Zhongtian’s trainee project is the best within the nation. And it just happens through the exchange of opportunities this time, we at Chenxing can learn properly from you.

Manager Li
Oh, you exaggerate. Yin Chang, come quick and meet your new employer. This is Xu Yan’s exclusive assistant.

Yin Chang
Hello.

Assistant Yi
We will definitely give Zhongtian’s highly talented trainee a solo debut opportunity.

Manager Li
Since Assistant Yi has taken you away, then perform well when you’re over at Chenxing. Don’t lose Zhongtian’s face.

Yin Chang
Thank you Manager Li. I definitely won’t fail to live up to these years of nurturing Zhongtian has given me.

Assistant Yi
Manager Li, then I’ll take him back first. There are still many things to arrange, after all. We can’t treat him unfairly, right?

Manager Li
Sure, sure. Please send my regards to CEO Xu for me.


[09:17]

Yin Chang
Assistant Yi, aren’t we going to the company?

Assistant Yi
This is it, isn’t it?

Yin Chang
Isn’t Chenxing in the CBD?

Assistant Yi
The trainee branch is here.

Yin Chang
Trainee branch? Aren’t I getting a solo debut?

Assistant Yi
What you signed is a debut from a trainee, so of course you need to start off as a trainee.

Yin Chang
Your… I thought we at Chenxing didn’t have a trainee program.

Assistant Yi
Now we do.

Yin Chang
Just only me, alone?

Assistant Yi
You’re going to live in such a big house by yourself. Don’t you feel happy? Enjoy your life alone fully. …Young Miss, mission complete.

Xu Zhaixing (Phone Call)
Thank you, Brother Yi!


[10:30]

Young Woman A
Hey, where’d your boss find you? You have such a personality. Do you have a girlfriend, Gorgeous? Woah! Too fast!

Young Woman B
Handsome, give us a smile. If you do, we’ll immediately give you this Mercedes for free for you to practice remodelling on it. If you break it, it’s on us.

Young Woman A
C’mon, it’s not the first time you’ve met him. When has he ever smiled?

Young Woman B
Alright. Even if you don’t I’ll lend it to you anyway, Handsome.

Young Woman A
Hey, why’s there someone who’s pushing their bike on this road?

Young Women
Woah!

Young Woman A
Hey! Where are you going?!

Cen Feng
Wait a moment for me.

Xu Zhaixing
Hmph. Never mind that Mum and Dad didn’t let me ride bikes last life, but I pestered Xu Yan and finally had him buy me a mountain bike and now the chain’s fallen off when I haven’t even ridden it for long? Heavens! Save this child, will you?!

Cen Feng
Do you need help?

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? Big Brother! Why are yo-

Cen Feng
Slow down.

Xu Zhaixing
My god. This is too amazing. I was wrong. This has to be a lucky bike!

Cen Feng
Are you better now?

Xu Zhaixing
Yup! Wait, it’s dirty! Don’t touch it.

Cen Feng
Don’t worry. It’s done.

Xu Zhaixing
It’s…done, just like that?

Cen Feng
Do you have wet tissues?

Xu Zhaixing
Huh?

Cen Feng
Excuse me, do any of you have wet tissues?

Young Woman A
Yeah, I do! Go find one!

Young Woman B
I’m looking for one right now. Here it is! Here you are.

Cen Feng
Take it.

Xu Zhaixing
I’m not dirty. I’m not. You wipe. Wipe your hands!

Cen Feng
You face is dirty.

Xu Zhaixing
Whaaat?

Xu Zhaixing
Last time it was a nosebleed, this time it’s grease. Xu Zhaixing, you’re a fan, remember?

Xu Zhaixing
Alright, I’m fine. I don’t need it.

Cen Feng
Come here.

Xu Zhaixing
Okay… Ow!

Cen Feng
It hurts? But why won’t it come off?

Young Woman B
Handsome, you need to go home and remove the grease with nail polish or wash it off with make-up remover.

Cen Feng
When you go home, clean it off properly.

Xu Zhaixing
Thank you… Big Brother, are they…? You didn’t… Ow!

Cen Feng
Don’t make weird guesses.

Xu Zhaixing
I didn’t! I’m not! Don’t worry! Big Brother, if you’ve been kidnapped then blink.

Cen Feng
You’re very funny. I’m helping the repair shop owner in taking the customers out on a test drive.

Young Woman A
Hey, Handsome. You haven’t introduced who this little girl is.

Cen Feng
She’s my…younger sister.

Xu Zhaixing
Hm? Who wants to be your sister? I’m a Mum fan!

Xu Zhaixing
Hello, big sisters!

Young Woman A
Your sister is so cute! Hey, little sister, we’r-

Cen Feng
Are you riding the bike home?

Xu Zhaixing
Oh, no. I just saw the weather’s nice so I came out for a ride. Big Brother, go do what you need to do. I’m going to go home after I ride for a while longer.

Cen Feng
Wait for me for a bit.

Young Woman B
Hey, you’re not going to go back with us anymore?

Cen Feng
Go back first. I’ll go back in a bit.

Young Woman B
Alright, then. We’ll leave first.

Young Woman A
See you, Gorgeous!

Xu Zhaixing
Big Brother, how come…

Cen Feng
It’s too remote here. It’s not safe.

Xu Zhaixing
Don’t worry. I have a GPS watch and it’s linked to my cousin’s phone. He can see where I am at all times!

Cen Feng
Mm.

Xu Zhaixing
Hey, your bike looks really pretty. It looks so much better than mine.

Cen Feng
Do you want to ride mine?

Xu Zhaixing
Yep! Can I?

Cen Feng
You can’t.

Xu Zhaixing
Huh?

Cen Feng
This one’s not safe.

Xu Zhaixing
Then why can you ride it?

Cen Feng
Just because I can.

Xu Zhaixing
Hmph. Immature bum. …Did he just smile? Hehe. Oh, Big Brother. Do you want to compete with me? The loser has to agree to one requirement the winner makes.

Cen Feng
Okay.

Xu Zhaixing
Wait, wait. Let me get on my bike. One! Two! Go!

Xu Zhaixing
I won!

Cen Feng
Mm, you won.

Xu Zhaixing
Even though you let me win, but I still need to think properly about my requirement.

Cen Feng
I didn’t. You’re were great.

Xu Zhaixing
Hm… I’ve got one! I hope that every day you’ll do one thing that makes you happy then write it in a notebook and date it. Next time we see each other, give it to me as a present!

Cen Feng
Why?

Xu Zhaixing
Er… My teacher told me to collect moments of happiness from the friends around us, but I only had my mind on having fun. Big Brother, help me finish my homework, please?

Cen Feng
…Okay.

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? My cousin’s here to pick me up.

Cen Feng
Oh. Then I’ll go back first.

Xu Zhaixing
Um…!

Cen Feng
I will eat well and sleep well.


[16:40]

Mother Xu
What’s she silly-laughing about? It’s a break-up scene.

Father Xu
Her? She’s probably happy about finally getting to go out to ride her bike.

Mother Xu
Look at how dark she got from riding her bike today. Next time, we can’t let Xu Yan spoil her so much. Who’s at the door so late?

Xu Zhaixing
I’ll go get it!

Xu Xiaojuan
Zhaixing!

Xu Zhaixing
Hey, it’s you Little Aunt.


[17:20]

Xu Zhaixing
Little Aunt, I’m begging you. Can you help us a little bit with my mum’s surgery fees? I’ll work hard and earn money to pay you back in the future… Please… I’m begging you…

Xu Xiaojuan
Ugh, I have no money. None. I lost it all playing mahjong.

Xu Zhaixing
Little Aunt, I’m begging you… Little Aunt! Little Aunt…

Xu Xiaojuan
Hurry up and leave. You’ve cried my tile luck into bad luck. … Five dots.

Mahjong Friend A
Three bamboos. Hey, little Juan, why don’t you give her at least some money. Look at how pitiable that little lady is. Even I feel sorry for her.

Xu Xiaojuan
Help her if you wanna help. Two bamboos.

Mahjong Friend B
Pong. It’s five now. Don’t you have to pick up your daughter from school?

Xu Xiaojuan
Doesn’t she have legs grown on her? Two characters.

Mahjong Friend C
I win! Hahaha! Gimme the money. Gimme it! I finally won a big hand! Hahaha!

Xu Xiaojuan
Ptui, ptui, ptui. Wretched luck. Who told that bad luck girl to cry until my luck turned bad? C’mon, another round!


[18:20]

Xu Zhiwen
We didn’t disturb you by coming over so late, did we?

Xu Zhaixing
You’re here too, Second Uncle. Come in.

Xu Zhaixing
I’d like to see what trouble these two can create out of nothing this time.

Xu Xiaojuan
Third Brother, a while ago Second Brother dragged me along to earn big money, but we lost everything in the end! That’s what my husband had accumulated almost all his life. Our family really doesn’t have any money. Guogang… Guogang even said he wants to divorce me. Third Brother, help me. I’m your blood-related younger sister, Third Brother!

Father Xu
Xiaojuan, don’t cry. You can earn money if it’s gone. Guogang and you are still young. It hasn’t gotten to the point you say it has. As for the difficulty you have now, I’ll help you overcome it. Let’s give Xiaojuan two hundred thousand.

Mother Xu
Alright.

Xu Xiaojuan
Two hundred thousand? How is two hundred thousand enough?

Father Xu
You live at the old family home and your expenses are low. Two hundred thousand is enough for your entire family to live off for a year or two.

Xu Xiaojuan
Third Brother, your Zhaixing just casually makes a dress and you’re willing to spend a few hundred thousand on that. When it comes to a matter of life or death for me, you’ll just try to get rid of me with two hundred thousand?

Father Xu
What do you mean Zhaixing casually making a dress?! That was an international grand prix and she got championship!

Xu Zhaixing
She even knows about the dress? Why would a woman who only plays mahjong back at the old house every single day pay attention to the fashion industry? Hmph. Looks like Xu Zhiwen told her something and added oil and vinegar as he did.

Xu Zhiwen
Er… Old Third, let’s talk about this calmly. Little sis didn’t mean it like that.

Father Xu
What did she mean? Isn’t it just that she thinks she’s getting too little? I’ll be honest with you. I don’t have money on hand right now. I’ve invested it all into my company. If you want it, then its two hundred thousand and not a cent more!

Xu Zhiwen
Hey!

Xu Xiaojuan
Third Brother, if that’s how you want to think then that’s cold. If you weren’t my older brother, I wouldn’t be begging you so humbly. Fine, in that case, as your younger sister I won’t force you. This two hundred thou-

Xu Zhaixing
Little Aunt, don’t you still have two properties in the city?

Adults
What?

Father Xu
How do you know that?

Xu Zhaixing
I heard her mahjong friends mention it last time we went back to the old family home. They said when Uncle and them had to relocated because their house was demolished, other than the demolishing funds they even got three properties. Then Little Aunt resold them and paid the down payment for two properties in the city. And now she’s so happy every day she can’t stop smiling and flaunts about it everywhere.

Xu Xiaojuan
Zhaixing, you child, what nonsense are you making up? I don-

Xu Zhaixing
One’s on Haishan Road, and another’s on Binjiang Road. They’re near the mountains and have a view of the river, and they’re in the area the government is focusing on developing. Little Aunt, if you really don’t have money then just selling either of your properties will keep you fed for your entire life.

Xu Zhiwen
Xiaojuan, is what she said true?

Father Xu
Hmph! That’s what you call having no rice to cook?! You don’t have rice but you do have a lot of properties instead!

Mother Xu
Oh, Xiaojaun, you don’t know how it is. Old Xu’s company has been in deficit every year in the past two years. We finally managed to earn some money this year, but what next? He says he wants to restructure the company and whop! All of it’s invested into it. I guess it’s also a good thing you don’t need the money now. I mean, nothing in the world is constant. Think about it. If something happens one day, are we supposed to come and ask our little sister, you, for emergency funds?

Xu Xiaojuan
No, wait. I didn’t sa-

Xu Zhaixing
Little Aunt, my mum knows a lot of people in the city. Let her contact them for you. Your two properties are in a good district. It’ll definitely sell for a good price.

Mother Xu
Oh, yes. That’s right. Xiaojuan, quick, tell me information about your properties. I promise you, in no more than three days I’ll be able to find a buyer.

Xu Xiaojuan
I-I I… N-N-No, I don’t need it at the moment.

Mother Xu
It’s not a hassle. We’re all family.

Xu Zhaixing
Second Uncle, what about you? Why did you come visit us today?

Xu Zhiwen
N-Nothing, I just accompanied little sis here. I might have gone bankrupt but I’m not at the point where I don’t have rice to cook.

Father Xu
That’s right! Every man of the Xu Family has a spine that supports the heavens! Just stand up again if you fall. Second Brother, you are the one with the best education and most amazing one out of all of us. I trust you’ll be able to restore your vigour soon.

Xu Zhiwen
Er… Yeah. Yeah.


[22:40]

Xu Zhaixing
Second Uncle, Little Aunt, take care! You’re welcome over any time!

Mother Xu
They finally left. Let’s go in.

Xu Zhaixing
‘Kay.

Father Xu
Did Xiaojuan agree to sell her properties?

Mother Xu
Do you even have to ask? Of course not. She said she suddenly remembered she still has a managed fund with the bank.

Xu Zhaixing
Dad, do you understand now?

Father Xu
They’re all white-eyed wolves who can’t be fed full.


[23:10]

Zhao Jinjin
Oh, you’re finally here! Zhaixing, how was my singing just then?

Xu Zhaixing
Okay, I guess. Will your mic be half-volume when you actually perform?

Zhao Jinjin
Yeah… I want it to be on full, but the director won’t allow it.

Xu Zhaixing
Mm. The director’s wise.

Zhao Jinjin
You…!

Xu Zhaixing
You know it too.

Zhao Jinjin
Tch. I let you get away with it. Are there any celebrities here that you like? I can take you to get a photo with them.

Xu Zhaixing
Nah, I don’t wanna.

Zhao Jinjin
Aw, don’t young girls your age right now all follow a celebrity? When I was young, I really like Su Ye. I even ended up taking the exams to get into Zhongxi later on.

Xu Zhaixing
Hm… You’ve got pretty good taste. He is someone who’ll become a Film Emperor in the future, after all.

Passerby A
Hey! Which blind perso-

Ma Fengkai
Sorry about that. My bad. Does where I stepped on you hurt?

Passerby A
…It’s fine. I’m the one who wasn’t careful when walking.

Ma Fengkai
Oh, as long as you’re fine. Remember to watch where you’re going next time.

Passerby A
Mm.

Passerby B
Why’re you so nervous. He’s the one who stepped on you.

Passerby A
What do you know? I’d rather anger a gentleman than bully a nasty person. I’m going to throw these shoes away when I get back. He’s touched it. It’s dirty.

Xu Zhaixing
Who was that guy? Why do they look like they despise him but are scared of him too?

Zhao Jinjin
Ma Fengkai, of course. Zhongtian’s new main manager of the trainee branch. I don’t know the details about why either.

Xu Zhaixing
Zhongtian’s trainee branch?

Zhao Jinjin
Mhm.

Xu Zhaixing
Looks like there’s some huge melon to scoop! Wait for me to go out to the frontlines and find out some information!

Zhao Jinjin
Young Miss, I’ll be waiting for your new from the frontline.


[24:50]

Passerby A
Ugh. Why’d we have to bump into him? Geez.

Passerby B
So disgusting. Hey, do you think our leader knows about Zhongtian taking him on?

Passerby A
How can he possibly not?

Xu Zhaixing
Big sister!

Passerby B
Huh? What is it?

Xu Zhaixing
Can I ask you about something?

Passerby A
Oh, go ahead.

Xu Zhaixing
It’s just about the person who stepped on your foot. I heard you two talking and you seem to really hate him. Why is that?

Passerby A
Shh! Lower your voice. You mean Ma Fengkai? He used to be in the modelling industry, and the young and inexperienced male models are his just his type! As long as he takes a fancy to them, it doesn’t matter if they’re willing or not, he’ll use any method to get his hands on them.

Passerby B
My best friend’s boyfriend was drugged by him and he almost lost his life. That scum sickens me to death. And I heard that he recently has his eyes on a young man from their company, but the guy’s got a pretty resistant attitude. Ma Fengkai put it out there at a dinner that he’ll definitely sleep the guy. Hear that? Is that something a human says? Yet no one will take care of the industry’s malignant tumour in like him! Little sister, it’s okay to talk about this in private, but don’t ever spread it in public!

Passerby A
The Heavens will naturally deal with the evil people. It’s not that revenge won’t be taken, but the time for it hasn’t arrived.

Passerby B
Little sister, just treat this as gossip you heard. You musn’t tell anyone I told you.

Xu Zhaixing
Mm. Thank you big sisters. Then I’m going to leave first. Bye-bye!

Passerby A
Oh, see you.

Passerby B
Bye.

Xu Zhaixing
I had thought Yin Chang was the biggest time bomb. I never thought there was still another one hidden here.

An Nan
Zhaixing!

Xu Zhaixing
Chief Editor An! How come you’re here?

An Nan
I’m here for interviews. I just saw Zhao Jinjin and she said you were here so I came. Y’know, building a good relationship with you and waiting for you to give me an exclusive. Our sales for last issue boomed and it’s really all thanks to you. What’s wrong? Worries are written all over your face.

Xu Zhaixing
Chief Editor An, do you know Ma Fengkai?

An Nan
I do. Why?

Xu Zhaixing
I heard he’s a scum.

An Nan
Mm, he is a scum.

Xu Zhaixing
You know too?!

An Nan
Everyone in the industry probably does.

Xu Zhaixing
Isn’t there anyone who’ll get rid of him? Why is he still left in the industry to harm others?

An Nan
His morals aren’t great, but he does have considerable skills. The few male models in the country you can name right now are all brought up by him. I heard he’s switched to bringing up talents. But anyhow, why would the agency care what your morals are like? They all do things behind the scenes.

Xu Zhaixing
They they’re just going to let him drug people and force them to submit to him?

An Nan
That’s why he’s famous for being a scum. An exchange done for opportunities is about it being voluntary, right? Willing to be leveraged in ‘relationships’ to get favourable treatment is one thing. Being forced is another. Either way, a pretty huge fuss was made over that incident in the modelling industry. He couldn’t stay any longer and that’s why he jumped to another.

Xu Zhaixing
Then is he married? Does his family know about all this?

An Nan
How can someone like him be married? Though, he does have quite a few lovers. They’re all willing so no one can really comment on it. Hey, don’t look at him and think he’s docile. His really ruthless. He even especially chooses those boys who are cold, cool and have spirit, and he likes that. Er… You shouldn’t listen so much to ‘restricted-level’ gossip like this. It’s not good for the development of your body and mind.

Xu Zhaixing
…Other than being immoral, has he done anything else that’s caused people to hate him?

An Nan
Why don’t you learn good habits instead of wanting to listen to these things that aren’t good for you? Hm… I heard a few years ago he adopted a boy around ten or so from an orphanage. 

Xu Zhaixing
And then?

An Nan
I have a friend who lives in the same residential area. When he was out on his nightly jog, he once saw the boy. He said he was skinny, malnourished, and would hide when he saw people. But he never saw the boy again. That friend of mine likes to exaggerate, so I’m not sure if it’s true or not. Hey, what’s wrong?

Xu Zhaixing
Oh, I didn’t have dinner so my stomach hurts a bit.

An Nan
Then I’ll take you get some food.

Xu Zhaixing
It’s okay. Sister Jinjin’s still waiting for me. She’s bought dinner for me.

An Nan
Alright, then hurry over there.

Xu Zhaixing
‘Kay! See you at the evening party later!


[28:55]

Zhao Jinjin
What took you so long? The evening party’s about to start.

Xu Zhaixing
Do you have contact details to professional paparazzi?

Zhao Jinjin
Why are you asking?

Xu Zhaixing
I have use for it. Give me a secret contact method. I want someone who’s reliable, professional and is tight-lipped.

Zhao Jinjin
Alright… I’ll have a look.

Xu Zhaixing
Only the Heavens, the Earth, you and I know.
