S1 Episode 7 – The Future and Unknown

Listen here

[00:00]

Ma Fengkai
Cen Feng… all you had to do was just be good and I’d definitely let you debut in C-position… But what about now? Haven’t you ended up in my hands anyway? You let Yin Chang that brat get the advantage. He helped me drug you, so now I can’t not give him the C-position. Ahh… Don’t say I let you down, handsome boy. Even your body is fragrant. Fuck! Yin Chang that motherfucker tricked me! …Cen Feng! You fucking dare to hit me? I’m gonna make you cry tonight for sure!

Cen Feng
What did you say?!

Ma Fengkai
Cen Feng, if you dare to do anything to me I’ll make sure you’ll stay a trainee all your life!


[01:45]

Cen Feng
Why did I dream about my past life again…?

Cen Feng
Fate gave some sweet taste of success, but… Ha. Do you think I’ll be fooled again this life?


[02:10]

Trainee A
Hey, did you see? Manager Ma was arrested right in his office.

Trainee B
If you ask me, he had it coming. Who told him to do all those immoral things? Thank god he didn’t have his eye on us.

Trainee C
Who’d be interested in you? They’d choose someone like Cen Feng if they had to for it to be exciting.

[02:55]

Newscaster A
We’ve just received a report on a male, surnamed Ma from Beijing who confined and abused a child under the guise of adoption. Reporters have been on standby for a length of time and finally captured crucial evidence on photo. The police discovered tools used to inflict abuse in many places in the man’s bedroom. The adopted child having been abused for an extended period of time now suffers from a severe case of psychological disorder, and the police have sent the child to an orphanage for recuperation. According to reported scoop , Mr Ma is a high-level manager of the veteran agency, Zhongtian Entertainment.

Newscaster B
Zhongtian Entertainment immediately released an important statement declaring they were completely unaware of the activities Mr Ma performed.

Xu Yan
Ma Fengkai’s case not only caused turmoil in the share market for Zhongtian, but even their talents lost quite a few positive image brand ambassadorships and screen-time opportunities.

Newscaster B
Other than dealt with Mr Ma’s case severely, they have also suspended and are investigating the HR managers who employed Ma Fengkai.

Xu Yan
Contrary to them, Chenxing profited from this disaster and picked up quite a few of what they lost.

Newscaster B
The accused Mr Ma has been charged with sexually abusing a minor and was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Zhao Jinjin
Right? I originally thought it was just an economic case of malicious revenge, but it turned out to be such a huge melon1! That poor little boy. I wonder which hero and courageous person rushed to the rescue. Seven years is too light for this kind of scum!

Xu Zhaixing
Don’t worry. He won’t have any hope of being released this entire life. Oh… Turn around for me, Jinjin.

Xu Yan
Zhaixing, our main major thing for the coming period is to fully cooperate with you to complete Orient Belle’s fashion exhibition. This counts as Orient Belle’s first promotion since it was established, so we must amaze the world with this single brilliant feat.

Xu Zhaixing
Cuz, don’t worry. Expert Fei’s helping me quite a bit. Besides, other than my previous work ‘Ascend’, I already had the other three dresses in the same series done ages ago. What’s left is just to work out the details and workflow with Paris.

Xu Yan
Mm. The proposal for the joint project between Third Uncle’s Leyu and Chenxing will be done soon, too. This time, we’ll launch the online and local promotion simultaneously and build hype for the live stream of the Orient Belle Exhibition. Hey, hasn’t Leyu’s been developing quite rapidly lately? Third Uncle said he closed the deal on the exclusive online streaming for a few top dramas and also introduced quite a few highly anticipated foreign releases too. This time, they can sit stably as the top video platform.

Xu Zhaixing
Of course. Have the licencing rights and you have the world. Big sister Zhao, get up. I’ve adjusted it.

Zhao Jinjin
Oh. I’m coming! Coming!

Xu Zhaixing
Come and try it on again.

Zhao Jinjin
Young Miss, you don’t know how many people are jealous of me right now. I almost wake up from my dreams laughing every day.

Xu Zhaixing
Don’t move. I’m so tired my head hurts and my eyes are blurry. Hey, let’s go have hotpot after you’ve tried it on?

Zhao Jinjin
No, no, no, not eating. I don’t want all my efforts to go to waste. CEO Xu’s already got the article about me outdazzling everyone drafted. I must not let the company and its nurturing down!

Xu Yan
O-Outdazzle…? Jinjin, there is no draft for that.

Zhao Jinjin
There isn’t? Why not?!

Xu Zhaixing
This is a fashion show. Everyone cat-walking with you are internationally famous models. What would you outdazzle them for?

Zhao Jinjin
Oh. Then let’s go.

Xu Zhaixing
Hey! Buttons, buttons!

Zhao Jinjin
Oh… Hahaha…

Xu Zhaixing
Go starve at home!

Zhao Jinjin
What?!


[05:35]

Training Instructor
One-two-one! One-two-one! One-two-one! One-two-one!

Trainee A
What’s going on over there? It’s crowded. They’ve got the red carpet and media?

Trainee B
Hey, is that Bai Siyu? The one in the red dress?

Trainee C
I saw written up there about some…O-…Orient Belle Exhibition? What’s an Orient Belle Exhibition?

Trainee D
How would we know? But by the looks of it, it’s probably the launch of a new high-end luxury brand.

Trainee E
We’re forced to painstakingly run for group training  and their comfortably watching a show with air-conditioning.

Training Instructor
Don’t look anymore! Pick up the pace! When you’re popular, you can go to as many shows like these as you want. There’s no use in envying them right now! Hey, Cen Feng. Where’re you going?

Cen Feng
I’m going to take a look.

Training Instructor
You… Then go back yourself later on, okay?

Cen Feng
Mm.

Trainee F
Instructor, we wanna take a look too!

Trainee G
Get lost. You sound like you’ve got tickets to get in.

Trainee F
Cen Feng doesn’t have tickets either. So why can’t I go too?

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? Big Brother!

Cen Feng
Mm.

Xu Zhaixing
It really is you!

Cen Feng
……

Xu Zhaixing
Big Brother, how come you’re here. Are you here just to see me?! Oh, you don’t know my name yet, right? I’m called…

Cen Feng
Xu Zhaixing. I know.

Xu Zhaixing
H-How… How did you know?

Cen Feng
I watched the contest.

Xu Zhaixing
You really did go back and watch my contest?

Cen Feng
Mm.

Xu Zhaixing
Big Brother, they’re putting on my fashion exhibition inside. Do you want to…go in and take a look?

Cen Feng
Okay.

Trainees
No way! We wanna go in too!

Training Instructor
Forget about going in! Go back to training!


[07:35]

Xu Zhaixing
We’re here. Um… This is the backstage area.

Yuan Si
Zhaixing. Just look at the order of this catwalk. Why is Moonlight arranged to appear before Prosperous Trousseau?

Xu Zhaixing
Oh, that… That was adjusted by me last minute last night. Haven’t they arranged it yet? Let me go over and take a look with you… Er… Big Brother, I…

Cen Feng
Go ahead.

Xu Zhaixing
Th-Then I’ll come look for you when I’m done. Why don’t you go and take a look at the stage first?

Cen Feng
Mm.


[08:05]

Father Xu
Huh? Why are there reporters taking photos of the audience?

Mother Xu
Oh, maybe it’s because they need it for their news report.

Father Xu
Hey, hey, hey. Look at that person there. Are they taking photos of me?

Mother Xu
What would they take photos of you for? Because you’re good looking? They’re taking photos of the handsome young man beside us.

Father Xu
Why can’t they be taking photos of me? Who knows? They might know that I’m the designer’s dad!

Mother Xu
Aish, hurry up and hide your face. Getting onto entertainment news with a face like yours would just make our Zhaixing lose face.

Father Xu
And you won’t make her lose face? You’re all dripping with gold and silver. Tacky!

Mother Xu
Hey!

Father Xu
Ow!

Mother Xu
What I’m doing is helping our daughter earn face! What you do understand?!

Father Xu
I’m sorry about that. Did that bump hurt you?

Cen Feng
Oh. I’m okay, Uncle.

MC
Thank you to all our guests for attending. Ladies and Gentlemen…


[09:00]

Photographer
Hey, handsome lad. I noticed you back in there during the show. Can I take a photo of you outside near the stone sculpture here?

Cen Feng
No, thank you.

Photographer
C’mon, take one. Our magazine puts a lot of effort into…

Xu Zhaixing
Hey, I’m sorry. We still have somewhere to be so we’ll be leaving now. Let’s go, Big Brother.

Cen Feng
Okay.

Photographer
Wait! He’s so good-looking, it’s such a waste for him to not be a model…

[09:20]

Xu Zhaixing
You waited for a long time, didn’t you?

Cen Feng
You didn’t. I think I saw your parents in there.

Xu Zhaixing
Really? Um… What do you think about them?

Cen Feng
They’re very cute. Bright and enthusiastic. Just like you.

Xu Zhaixing
Oh, right. I didn’t ask you how come you turned up here.

Cen Feng
I was doing group training just across from here. …Trainee group training.

Xu Zhaixing
So you plan on debuting in the future? When you do I’ll definitely be your first fan!

Cen Feng
……

Xu Zhaixing
Hmm… Where’s my homework?

Cen Feng
I’ve done it. Do I need to give it to you?

Xu Zhaixing
Yes, please!

Cen Feng
It’s at the dorm. I’ll go back to get it.

Xu Zhaixing
I’ll go… Can I go back with you to get it?

Cen Feng
You can.

Xu Zhaixing
Yes! Uhh… Your dorm isn’t too far from here. They’ve closed off the road up ahead, so we’ll have to make a huge detour if we go by car. Why don’t we walk back?

Cen Feng
Let’s go. While the sky is still bright.

Xu Zhaixing
‘Kay!

Xu Zhaixing
I keep wishing when we have to part is further away. And even further. I keep hoping time would run slower. And even slower.


[10:55]

Cen Feng
Xu Zhaixing.

Xu Zhaixing
Huh?

Cen Feng
Do you want to eat ice-cream?

Xu Zhaixing
Okay.

Cen Feng
Then I’ll buy ice-cream for you to eat while you wait for me downstairs.

Xu Zhaixing
Okay!

Cen Feng
Which one?

Xu Zhaixing
Same as yours.

Trainee A
Oh, Cen Feng. You’re back so early. I heard a Sugar Daddy came to see you this afternoon.

Trainee B
Ha. How come you’re alone? Where’s your Sugar Daddy?

Trainee C
Hey, don’t forget to buy that, yeah? You still need to take care about safety and hygiene.

Cen Feng
You…!

Trainee A
Argh! What’re you doing?!

Trainee B
Fuck! Which bastard dared to spray me?! Huh?! Why’s it so cold?!

Trainee A
Don’t throw! Don’t throw anymore. It’s all over my face!

Trainee C
Fuck! Who is it?! Keep throwing and I won’t hold back in getting you for this!

Xu Zhaixing
Come on! Fight me! A bunch of smelly #$*&@#) idiots! Who’s scared of you?! We’ll see who’ll kill who!!

Trainee C
You motherfuckin-

Xu Zhaixing
…!

Cen Feng
You dare!

Trainee C
You…!

Trainee A
Forget it. We’ll get him for this later.

Trainee B
C’mon let’s go. Don’t argue with a girl over this. Let’s go back to training.

Trainee C
Fine. I’ve got you remembered, okay?

Xu Zhaixing
What’re you remembering your Daddy for? I don’t have a degenerate offspring like you!

Trainee C
Go on and fucking say another word!

Xu Zhaixing
You trash! Your daddy will plant a Loquat tree tonight2! People will point fingers at the moves your grandpa makes when he plays Chinese chess3! Your mummy won’t be able to lead the square dancing! The grocers will raise the prices super high when your grandma goes shopping! You’ll become retarded and can’t look after yourself for the second half of your life!

Trainee C
You…!

Cen Feng
Pfft… Xu Zhaixing. It’s enough.

Xu Zhaixing
Hmph!

Cen Feng
Why aren’t you leaving?

Trainee A
C’mon. Let’s go.

Trainee C
Wait. We’re just gonna let her?!

Trainee B
We can’t win her in a fight or out-curse her. Why stay here and lose face?

Trainee C
Hmph!

Convenience Store Owner
Er… These things…

Cen Feng
I’m sorry. Is this enough money?

Convenience Store Owner
Yes, yes. It is.

Cen Feng
Let’s go.

Xu Zhaixing
Mm…

Cen Feng
Take it.

Xu Zhaixing
… Big Brother, I’m sorry. I’m not that nasty. I’m not usually like that…

Cen Feng
I know. I know that.

Xu Zhaixing
They’re bad people… They bully you…

Cen Feng
They don’t have the guts to bully me. No one can bully me. The ice-cream will melt if you don’t eat it.

Xu Zhaixing
Mm…

Cen Feng
Wait here for me. I’ll go up and get your notebook for you.

Xu Zhaixing
Will they…?

Cen Feng
Don’t I still have you?

Xu Zhaixing
Mhm!


[13:55]

Cen Feng
Here. Put it away.

Xu Zhaixing
That’s…your group training bell?

Cen Feng
We always have to gather to receive a talk every day at this time.

Xu Zhaixing
Then you should hurry back. You’ll get scolded if you’re late. See you, Big Brother.

Cen Feng
Wait, Zhaixing.

Xu Zhaixing
Huh?

Cen Feng
Save your phone number in here.

Xu Zhaixing
Oh, oh! Here!

Cen Feng
If there’s anything you want to say from now on, just message me. Don’t leave comments on my blog anymore. I rarely go on it.

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? Haha… Big Brother, what are you talking about? What blog? I don’t understand what you’re talking about.

Cen Feng
You really don’t understand?

Xu Zhaixing
Hahaha…

Xu Zhaixing
It’s definitely my ID’s fault! Geez, Xu Zhaixing. What did you soar to the skies and pluck stars for?! See? He worked out who you are! Ugh… I don’t think I said anything that affected his impression of me right? I think all I wrote were comments complimenting him about his beautiful face of the golden age or praising rainbows about him? Yep… I think I’m safe.

Xu Zhaixing
I just happened to see your profile picture and photo. That’s why… Haha.

Cen Feng
……

Xu Zhaixing
Um… Big Brother, hurry up and go back.

Cen Feng
Mm.

Xu Zhaixing
Hello?

Cen Feng (Phone Call)
Stay safe on your way home.

Xu Zhaixing
Mhm! I will! See you, Big Brother!

Cen Feng (Phone Call)
See you.

Xu Zhaixing
Big Brother?

Cen Feng (Phone Call)
Mm?

Xu Zhaixing
Why aren’t you hanging up?

Cen Feng (Phone Call)
Mm, I will now.

Xu Zhaixing
See you.

Xu Zhaixing
Yes! I have Big Brother’s phone number!


[16:05]

Xu Zhaixing
What should I save him as? I definitely can’t use his name. ‘Baby’? Ugh…Dad and Mum’ll hit me to death if they see it. ‘Husband’? Ptui, ptui, ptui! Even more impossible. Then how about just… ‘Big Brother’? But it feels so normal. ‘Sonny’! A professional Mum fan must have the awareness of a professional Mum fan!

Zhao Jinjin
Young Miss, I came all the way here to pick you up, so what are you holding your phone and smiling so sillily for?

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? Am I smiling?

Zhao Jinjin
I saw you lured that handsome lad over again today. I thought we had no hope. How did it go? Did he agree to sign with Chenxing?

Xu Zhaixing
Zhao Jinjin, you talk too much. Doesn’t your family find you annoying?

Zhao Jinjin
I… I…


[17:15]

Xu Yan
What happened? Where’s Zhaixing?

Zhao Jinjin
Young Miss said I talk too much.

Xu Yan
You do talk too much.

Zhao Jinjin
I can’t stay here anymore. I can’t! What’s wrong with your family?! The Heavens and Earth are vast, yet there isn’t a single place that will allow me to belong!

Xu Zhaixing
Woah. What’re you doing?

Zhao Jinjin
Hmph!

Xu Zhaixing
What’s up with her?

Xu Yan
You made her angry like that.

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? … Did I irritate her? And to think I arranged so many people to take pretty photos of her. I even have to post a post to help her occupy a forum.

Xu Yan
Just leave that sort of thing to the PR Department. What are you doing it for?

Xu Zhaixing
I’m learning ahead of time. What if I can be in charge of my idol in the future? I need to do my preparations for it! Hehe, just thinking about it makes me happy!

Xu Yan
Alright. Weibo just happened to launch recently. I’m thinking of whether we need to join.

Xu Zhaixing
Go! Hurry and join! We must! The earlier we register, the earlier we take root! We need to become the Hot Topics King in the future!

Xu Yan
Huh?

Xu Zhaixing
Official Weibo account for Chenxing’s talents, official Weibo account for the talents’ fan club. As for the fan groups organised by fan themselves, we don’t have to manage them yet. It’s too early for rankings, voting, counterattacking antis, and fan groups. We need to register all the accounts that need to be. Apply for a Yellow V4 for those who should have it and apply for a Blue V fo-

Xu Yan
Stop, stop, stop. Write all this down and I’ll send it over to PR for them to look over.

Xu Zhaixing
Mhm, okay. Cen Feng… Oh, I found it! Follows… Two?! Lemme see. Zhongtian Entertainment and…Soaring the Skies to Pluck Stars For You?! I’m done for! It’s all because he worked out who you are, Xu Zhaixing! You’re useless! I’ll make a side account. I’ll call it… ‘If You Become The Wind’5. Hehe, Young fangirl, you can’t admit defeat!


[19:16]

Xu Zhaixing (Weibo Post)
Live until old, learn until old. Studying until I’m 70 is adequate!

Xu Zhaixing (Weibo Post)
As a Chinese, why do we need to learn English? Because language cannot become the limitations to my exploration of this world!

Cen Feng
Pfft…

Xu Zhaixing (Weibo Post)
I daily examine myself on three points: Did I work hard today? Did I mature? Did I raise myself to a higher level?

Cen Feng
Did I follow the wrong person? I’ll see you in a month.


[19:45]

Wen Tinging
Cen Feng, give me your phone. You need to work hard during this group training. Your self-introduction a few days ago was half-hearted and slacked off during the performance. At first, I thought you were unhappy with me, the new talent manager, and did it to provoked me purpose. But in the end I get told you gave up on yourself. Why do you willingly degrade yourself? Don’t you want to debut? Trust me. From the first time I saw you, I was sure you’ll make it big.

Cen Feng
Oh?

Wen Tinging
Just what’s up with you? You’ve turned off your phone passcode, right? What about your Weibo? Do you know you’re the only trainee in the entire agency that hasn’t followed me?

Cen Feng
I don’t know.

Wen Tinging
What? Is my perfume too strong for you?

Cen Feng
Mm.

Wen Tinging
You…! Do you think the agency registered a Weibo account for you to follow any account you want? Who is this ‘Soaring the Skies to Pluck Stars For You’? I’ve unfollowed them for you. I’ll be keeping your phone. You’ll get it back after training.

Cen Feng
Have you said everything? If you have, I’ll be leaving.

Wen Tingting
Stop! Stand right where you are! Who said you could leave?!


[20:51]

Xu Zhaixing
……

Cheng You
Hm? What’s up so early in the morning? Did you get scolded?

Xu Zhaixing
My heart hurts. I wanna cry… Why did he unfollow me?! Is it because I still wasn’t positive enough?!

Cheng You
Who? Who unfollowed you? It’s not that I want to say this, but your Weibo is just too clean and odd. Even I want to unfollow you! Hehehe. Lemme see whose great mind thinks like mine… Cen Feng?! There really is a Cen Feng?! He’s even a yellow V verified account? Zhongtian Trainee?! Holy crap! Is this profile pic actually him? He’s so hot!

Xu Zhaixing
Shh! Don’t be so loud! It’s been a month already. I haven’t heard from him at all… I wonder how my sonny is doing. I’m so hurt.

Cheng You
Wait, hold on a sec. Zhongtian? Look yourself. Zhongtian’s male idol group has been formed! It’s called F-Fly, but…Cen Feng’s not in it.

Xu Zhaxing
What? Isn’t it supposed to be S-Star? Why isn’t Cen Feng part of it either? Lemme see!

Xu Zhaixing
Huh? Is it because I interfered of my own accord and made him lose his debut position? Big Brother won’t be feeling awful about it, will he?

Xu Zhaixing (Message)
Big Brother, do your best! You’ll definitely be able to debut next time! The best are always left for last!

Cen Feng (Message)
Mm, you do your best too.

Xu Zhaixing (Message)
How come you’re so quick to reply today?

Cen Feng (Message)
I just got my phone back. Had group training for a month.

Xu Zhaixing
One month? Just got his phone back?!

Xu Zhaixing (Message)
I just finished my first mock exam. I did pretty well. I even got the last hard question in maths right. Big Brother, are you happy today?

Cen Feng (Message)
Yes.

Xu Zhaixing (Message)
Then you need to stay happy~

Cen Feng (Message)
Okay, I will.


[23:13]

Cen Feng
‘Soaring the Skies to Pluck Stars For You’… Pfft.

Xu Zhaixing (Weibo Post)
HAHAHA! I’m dying laughing.

Xu Zhaixing (Weibo Post)
Zhou Mingyu! Trash! I’m your Daddy!

Xu Zhaixing (Weibo Post)
No way. That works too?! Gotta call upon my Sister You @ChengYoYoYo to compare beauty.

Xu Zhaixing (Weibo Post)
Cheng You! Who let you post about my black history?!! Just you wait until we’re back in school on Monday!!!

Cen Feng
This is more like her. The little kid. I…won’t follow her after all.


[23:50]

Zhao Jinjin
Hey, wait! Wait a sec! Hold it! Thank you. I made it. I made it. I finally made it… Wait. You…look a lot like my idol.

Su Ye
Who’s your idol?

Zhao Jinjin
It’s Su… Su Ye…

Su Ye
What a coincidence. That’s me.

Zhao Jinjin
You, you, you… Haha! Hello, I’m…I’m Zhao Jinjin!

Su Ye
I know.

Zhao Jinjin
Oh.

Su Ye
CEO Xu. We meet again.

Xu Yan
I’ve been waiting for you. Here, this way please.

Zhao Jinjin
Young Miss, Young Miss! Guess who I just saw at our company! It’s Su Ye. Su Ye!!! My Adonis!! Aaaaahhh!!!

Xu Zhaixing (Phone Call)
So, you saw my surprise for you?

Zhao Jinjin
Young Miss, no matter if I have to be your cow or horse for labour, I’ll definitely return this favour!

Xu Zhaixing (Phone Call)
Oh, you don’t need to. All I did was make a suggestion. My cousin’s the one who did most of the work this time. He called on him seven times over to show his sincerity just to invite Su Ye.

Zhao Jinjin
Oh my god. Oh my god! My dream’s come true. It’s come true! I can die without regrets now. CEO Xu isn’t just handsome, he’s essentially the reincarnation of Bodhisattva! I will definitely bring out my best acting of my life for this drama, ‘Forging Mountains and Rivers’!

Xu Zhaixing (Phone Call)
Sister Jinjin, dramas like ‘Forging Mountains and Rivers’ haven’t appeared in the market yet. Our company has invested a lot for this IP. Whether or not we can pioneer this market and conquer a state of shows like these is all dependent on you! Oh right, I’ll be taking my university exams soon. This might be the last call I make before I finish my exams.

Zhao Jinjin
Oh! Okay! Young Miss, let’s both do our best. Good luck!

Xu Zhaixing (Phone Call)
Mm!


[25:55]

Supervising Teacher
Don’t start writing when you get your paper. Only start answering when you hear the bell. We’ll first be checking the sticker with your name and barcode on your answer sheet. Everyone, put it somewhere where it can be seen and don’t move around without permission.


[26:15]

Father Xu
Zhaixing, focus on your exams. I’ll take your mother overseas for treatment.

Mother Xu
Once you’ve finished taking your exams, my surgery will have been successful.


[26:28]

Father Xu
Zhaixing, your mother passed away…

Xu Zhaixing
Dad!!!


[26:37]

Supervising Teacher
You may start answering.

Xu Zhaxing
It’s all in the past, Xu Zhaixing. All those days and years without daylight have already vanished like smoke in thin air. University exams… Do your best!

Xu Zhaixing
Mm!


1 Melon is the equivalent to popcorn in social media drama. So to “eat melon” is the same as to “popcorn” to some sort of drama.
2 During the Ming Dynasty, husbands would personally plant a loquat tree in the year their wife dies.
3 There is a Chinese saying, “true gentlemen do not speak while observing a game of chess”. So if the audience start making comments and pointing fingers at the board, it could mean a bad move has been made. Also, usually only an elder person is able to “comment” or “give advice”.
4 The V symbol on a Weibo account is an account verification. The Yellow (sometimes called orange) is given to individuals. Celebrities are given this verification. The Blue V is given to organisations, including companies or media.
5 The characters for her account are 你若化成风 (ni ruo hua cheng feng). Again ‘cheng feng’ is a close homophone for Cen Feng.
