Countless bullet-screens emerged all of a sudden.
“Here it comes.”
“So fucking beautiful. At a glance, all I can see are good-looking people!”
“Who said that Yang Lizhi got plastic surgeries? Come out! Look at her in ancient-style costume, she’s the goddess!”
“There are really few females can be gorgeous like her. So brilliant and lovely.”
“Bai Qingquan really looks good in white clothes. An angel!”
“I love this kind of spectacle. I feel excited at the first glance. Only in the showbiz can one find so many good-looking people at once.”
“The cast are all so pretty. But Shen Jintai didn't lose to any of them!”
“Yeah, I was gonna say that. I’m surprised that he's so eye-catching even among all the handsome guys. "
“It's a pity that his butt is no apparent in that clothes.”
“Am I the only one who notices that he looks the ruddiest? The real white face and red lips.”
“Compared to the old gaudy Shen Jintai, he is really different. He has a special temperament now, as well as a good figure and a really straight back!”
At the scene, the voice of Bai’s fans was the loudest, but in the scream of a group of Bai’s fans, he heard someone calling his name.
He smiled and waved to the fans.
“Shen Jintai!” He saw a familiar face, the girl he met last time when he was having a meal with Yan Yaoxuan.
There were only about ten fans of his coming this time, but they were all very excited to see Shen Jintai.
Shen Jintai went over and said hello to them.
Bai Qingquan didn’t want to lose to Shen Jintai, so he also went to say hello to his own fans. The fans were excited and a little out of control. The crew pulled them back.
“There are so many people here today.” Liu Hui took out a small mirror and looked at his makeup again.
There were not only fans, but also presses who were allowed to take photos. Liu Hui makes a living out of his face, he must be beautiful.
When looking in the mirror, he heard the shrieks of Bai’s fans, Yang Lizhi’s fans and Jin’s. Song Wei and other old actors and actresses were not surprised, but he was a little envious and unhappy.
He had also played a lot of leading roles. Not only the play didn't get hot, but he didn’t get many fans!
“Let's get ready for the shooting. All departments get in place!” The executive director shouted with a loudspeaker.
The scene was an important one, it was about the vassals coming to show their respect and loyalty. At this banquet, several princes and the forces behind them would struggle for power. The climax of the banquet was a big murder with poison.
Guo Rui kind of wanted to show off his skills, and he chose a long shot for the visiting day.
In this sort of one-take scene, especially this large-scale group scene, scheduling is very important. Only the experienced directors with good skills can do it.
For there could only be one shot, but all the main characters must be shown.
“One, two, three, action!”
Slowly, the scene followed a group of maids into the banquet hall. Several important concubines showed their faces one by one. Finally, it stopped at a pretty looking maid. She quietly walked behind the third prince and handed the plate to him.
Zhou Ying had been criticized by the court because he doted on the eunuch Li Xu. He was a virtuous man, but Zhou Jing’s abilities and talents were far better than his. After the eunuch scandal, His public image was down to a new low.
However, the old emperor still attached great importance to this eldest son. In addition, empress Xiao's maternal family was distinguished, his position as the successor was still stable.
But the people below him couldn't stand it anymore. One of them was Zhou Yan, the third prince.
“He's just luckier than us. His mother is the empress. He can't even compete with me in governing the country, let alone the second brother!” Zhou Yan stared at the eldest prince and said.
Zhou Jing smiled and said: “With the Xiao’s family, his position will stay solid unless he makes some unforgivable mistakes.”
Then, he looked at the eldest prince and saw Li Xu standing upright behind the eldest prince, with a scar on his cheek.
“How are you?” Zhou Ying asked in a low voice.
“Your Royal Highness, you should not take me to such an occasion.” Li said
“I just want my mother to know my determination. The more ridiculous I am, the less likely she dares lay hands on you.”
He said and looked up at empress Xiao, who was not far away.
Empress Xiao frowned slightly and noticed that the emperor who was sitting beside her was also looking at the eldest prince. She forced a smile and said: “He’s doing this on purpose to annoy me. This child is still so stubborn.”
She wanted to tell the emperor that the prince was so absurd not because he doted on Li Xu, but because he wanted to annoy her.
Recently, a rumor was spreading all over the place, saying that the emperor’s about to depose the eldest prince. Although she knew it was only a rumor, she was still nervous about it.
However, in such a situation, the eldest prince still brought Li Xu to attend the banquet. It could be seen that in her son's heart, the beauty had gone beyond the realm.
She reached for her chief eunuch and whispered a few words. Helan Bi, who was sitting next to her, took a sip of wine and peeped at Zhou Jing across the aisle.
The camera then returned to Zhou Jing. Zhou Yan the third prince, who was beside him, suddenly frowned, shivered, then there was blood coming out of his mouth.
This long shot was taken three times in a row.
From then on, the play set off a tradition of one dead body in every episode.
The fans who was there watching all held their breaths.
When watching live shooting, the environment was a bit noisy. And without the filters and editing, the parts were all incoherent, but after that blood, every scene was great.
Someone shouted wrong, someone got dragged away by the bodyguard, someone crying, someone broke the cup and started to kowtow. One twist after another, everyone was amazed!
Due to the principle of confidentiality, the camera was far away during the livestream. It was a bit vague, and the lines couldn’t be heard clearly. However, by just watching could they feel the intensity of the fight between the royal members.
The people were discussing more intensely through the bullet screens.
“Was that Wei Xi, the actress who plays Lady Shu, who just got dragged away? She has so few scenes.”
“Damn, it looks wonderful.”
“The fight between royal members should to be this cruel. My heart starts racing just by hearing them arguing with each other in high voice!”
“Slap scene, slap scene!”
“The empress and the eldest prince are so miserable! But aren't the crew afraid of revealing the plot?”
“It’s an adaptation of a novel. The poison kill is a famous scene. It’s closely connected with the case of witches and demagogues. Then the eldest prince will be abolished, then the Xiao’s family will be slaughtered, the empress will go mad, and the people in Helan’s family will be involved in this and recruited to be slaves in the palace because of their affinity with the Xiao’s family.”
“So they are relatives. I was wondering why empress Xiao's niece is called Helan.”
"Helan Bi is the adoptive daughter of the Xiao’s family. She was adopted by when she was seven or eight years old, and her life experience is also very dramatic. I’ll leave it for you to explore by yourself.”
“I can't hear what they're saying, but I think everyone's acting so good, including Shen Jintai!”
“You don’t say! I'm so excited. Shen Jintai just kowtowed and cried. It's moving and exciting.”
“Can't wait to watch it!”
“I just came back from watching the trailer from their official account. I want to say, I've made up my mind. I’m definitely gonna see this!”
“The trailer's out?? Shit, it's already ten o'clock. I'm going right now!”
“Whoa, whoa, the trailer is awesome. Shen Jintai’s raising eyebrows was so sick!”
“Shen Jintai really isn’t the main character of the play? They ended the trailer with his scene.”
Half an hour after the release of the trailer, it successfully boarded the top searched list, and soon rose to the top ten.
Bai’s fans only saw the beauty of their idol: “Gold nurtures people and flowers nurture smiles. My idol looks fabulous when fiddling with flowers!”
Yang Lizhi's fans only saw the beauty of her: “This look back, I love it!”
Shen Jintai’s fans were even more exciting.
A brand-new Shen Jintai!!! When did brother become so charming!
Apart from being in the screen for too short and having not enough scenes, he was flawless!
When could that be changed!
Yan Yaoxuan sat on the car to the airport and repeatedly watched the trailer more than ten times.
Finally, he adjusted it to the whole screen and captured the scene when Shen Jintai raised his eyebrows. Then Yan Yaoxuan set it as the wallpaper.
He put down his cell phone and looked out of the window.
Summer was at its end, autumn’s coming.
Fans, actors and actresses at the shooting site didn’t get to see the trailer at the first time. The visiting was also coming to an end. After a series of climaxes, the crew was busy shooting the last scene.
Shen Jintai, the actor who played Li Xu, ran in the corridor with his robe corner lifted up and his feet thumping on the wooden floor. The executive director shouted at the back of the camera: “Li Xu, turn around!”
Hearing this, Shen Jintai, with blood on his forehead, turned his head suddenly, and an arrow flew across his cheek.
The make-up artist rushed over and applied fake blood and scars on Shen Jintai's face. Shen Jintai's chest was still undulating violently. He looked down slightly and said nothing. Obviously, he was still in the character.
Bai Qingquan, holding a bow in his hand, walked to the other end of the corridor and stood up, looking at Shen Jintai.
He just had an argue scene with Shen Jintai. His chest was filled with the joy of acting. Then came the more emotional scene. He was very excited.
When the makeup artist worked it out, Guo Rui stood behind the monitor and said: “Adjust your mood and get ready to shoot.”
Shen Jintai took a serious breath, raised his head and nodded to the director.
“One, two, three, action!”
The staff squatted at the side and raised the blower in hands. Shen Jintai's long hair drifted and his red eyes were looking at the camera.
The rocker lens turned, his face muscles twitched slightly, his thin lips were tightly pursed and his eyes were glowing with tears. Zhou Jing, played by Bai Qingquan, pointed to him and roared: “You dare to take another step, I’ll kill you!”
“Your Highness, you promised me that you won’t kill him!”
“You think I’m the only one who wants him dead?” Bai Qingquan's eyes were also red: “Things have come to this point, it’s not something we can control. If you go, you will die with him.”
Shen Jintai stared at him and said: “You could’ve saved him.”
Bai Qingquan's lips trembled: “I would neither kill him nor save him.”
He looked at Shen Jintai. There were bloodstains on Shen Jintai's face. Shen’s eyes spoke. He was really convinced by Shen Jintai's acting skills. This Shen Jintai stole everyone’s thunder today, with the most incredible acting skills.
Shen Jintai had no lines at this moment, only subtle facial expression changes. He stared at Bai for a while, turned around and ran forward. Bai Qingquan stepped forward and shouted: “Don't forget whose servant you are!”
Shen Jintai stopped, turned around and said: “I'm your servant, but I'm the prince's… I am the prince's...”
He didn't go on, only looked back. His face became sorrowful, his cascade of long hair fell down, his forehead and face were covered with blood, and his black robe and white shirt were stained.
At this time, Xiao Ai came online with a “Ding Dong” and said: “Dear, Bai Yueguang's favor value for you has increased by 31 points. You will be rewarded with slim waist, waist lines and sexy nipples, as well as the next beauty reward, beautiful eyebrows and bright eyes.”
Shen Jintai didn't seem to hear it.
Xiao Ai stayed silent for three seconds and went offline with a “Di” sound.
Shen Jintai wiped his tears, turned around and stepped forward decisively.
The bow and arrow in Bai Qingquan's hands fell to the ground, making a noise. Shen Jintai's clothes were messy, while his hair was well managed with jade crown, and he was dressed in a blue and white robe, embroidered with the pattern of round flowers and bamboo leaves, which was noble and elegant.
All this was just the beginning. Bai Qingquan and Shen Jintai would be acting together for nearly a year. What also started was the journey of the two most popular stars in the showbiz loving and annoying each other.
At this time, the trailer was launched on two top-level TV channels successively, with Yang Lizhi in the middle, followed by Bai Qingquan and Shen Jintai
