Since the ‘Interstellar Mecha’ needed to be ready for the blockbuster screening at the end of the year, and they still needed to edit the movie and do the advertising, they didn’t have much time. Therefore, they held the conclusion banquet at the Sea Star Set. And the next day, everyone would return to the Emperor Star and work overtime to promote the movie.

Generally speaking, the protagonist of the movie would be the essential candidate to promote the film. However, all the actors who have worked with Ye Luohan before know that Ye Luohan was only responsible for filming and wouldn’t help with the promotion. Since having to be a part of the movie was already the biggest promotion. Therefore, the directors never forced him either.

“You want to promote with us?” Qian Xuewen doubted if he was hallucinating right now and asked to confirm.

Ye Luohan calmly glanced at the old man with the exaggerated expression in front of him and didn’t deny it. “Wow, you’ve either changed or you’ve been possessed. This isn’t like you at all.” Although Qian Xuewen was very happy to hear this news, he was also shocked and even suspected that this good friend of his was possessed.

If he really was possessed, he hoped that Ye Luohan would come back to his senses after the publicity was finished. This was a very rare opportunity. Qian Xuewen secretly thought in his heart that once they returned to the Emperor Star, the actors would participate in their first publicity program ‘Entertainment Knockout’ without any rest first. ‘Entertainment Knockout’ was Emperor Star’s Apple Station’s most famous variety show, and those who participate are usually well known figures of Emperor Star. Any movie publicity would usually choose this program as their first choice. 

‘Entertainment Knockout’ was as its name suggested. Firstly, it was meant for entertainment. Secondly, their specialty was to “knockout” the audience with emotion until they couldn’t help but scream with astonishment.

Of course, this variety show wasn’t the same as the previous ‘Emperor Star’s Capital Entertainment.’ Capital Entertainment focused on interviews while this program was more focused on entertainment, and the game is a huge portion of it. And it was because of this that would allow celebrities to have their hearts thumping and knockout each other, thus creating a live climax.

This time, Ye Luohan, Luo Lingxing, Shen Chuxia, Zhao Hongtao, as well as Li Yuanbo would all be participating in the program under the leadership of Director Qian Xuewen.

Zhao Hongtao played Qin Shaohui’s right-hand man, Zhao Pengxuan, in the movie. Meanwhile, Li Yuanbo played Qin Shaohui’s good brother and subordinate who later betrayed him and became the villain.

There were actually several other main characters, but they were sent to other planets to promote.

“Welcome, everyone, to Saturday night’s ‘Entertainment Knockout,’ sponsored by baby’s formula. We are…” the host shouted at the beginning of the show.

“The entertainment family!” the four hosts shouted together.

‘Entertainment Knockout’ had four hosts, two men and two women. The men and women paired up to work to not tire themselves.

“It’s getting closer and closer to the new year, and as everyone knows, new year is when all the major films are competing for the broadcasting spot. Since that’s the case, even during the freezing cold of winter, we’ll be able to watch all kinds of magnificent and amazing movies in the warmth of our homes. As for today, we were fortunately able to invite a crew who had just finished their filming. Can everyone guess who they are?” The host, Liu Ziqian, extended the microphone to the audience, interacting with them.

“Interstellar Mecha,” the audience was cooperative and shouted out the movie’s name.

“That’s right, it’s ‘Interstellar Mecha,’ the movie that has gained  popularity before even being released. I heard that a superstar has come with them today that I’m sure everyone would find very unexpected and have been looking forward to seeing,” Su Zhirui followed Liu Ziqian and said.

“Really? Who could it be? Is he a very handsome man?” Yang Leyao asked with a confused face, causing a burst of laughter on the scene.

Yang Leyao was the most open of the four hosts, and the funny parts were basically played by her.

“I’m being serious. In fact, I didn’t want him to come on the show,” Guan Fenghua sighed on the side.

“Why not? Isn’t it nice to be able to see a handsome man?” Su Zhirui asked in confusion.

Guan Fenghua suddenly made a magnificent gesture toward the audience, and while cutting a sorry figure, said, “Thinking of the magnificent generation of my youth, once I meet him, I would turn into trash in a second. Why do you think I wouldn’t want him to come?”

Guan Fell’s voice fell flat as the audience burst out with laughter.

“As far as your magnificent youth, tell me which one of our guests who has come onto the show didn’t turn you into trash?” Yang Leyao said with disdain, making Guan Fenghua emotional.

Liu Ziqian acted as if he couldn’t see the two people joking around and said, “I’m sure the audience can’t wait any longer. Now let’s invite the members of the ‘Interstellar Mecha’ onstage.”

Under enthusiastic applause, the members of the ‘Interstellar Mecha’ as well as Qian Xuewen walked onstage.

“Hello everyone. I’m the director of the ‘Interstellar Mecha,’ Qian Xuewen” Qian Xuewen greeted the audience with a smile. This wasn’t his first time on ‘Entertainment Knockout,’ so he was familiar with the process.

“Hello, everyone. I play Qin Shaohui in the ‘Interstellar Mecha.’ I’m Ye Luohan,” Ye Luohan said afterward.

The scene was quiet for a second before exploding with unprecedented excitement.

“Aah… It’s the Male God. The Male God is really here. Male God, I love you. I want to marry you!”

“Oh my god, I can’t believe that I’m this close to the Male God!”

The shouts of the audience were resounding, and everyone was screaming with excitement. If the facilities hadn’t been well-proofed, then people might have charged inside.

There was also a portion of the audience that were full of excitement but also remorse, and these people were the speculators that were viewing online.

There were two ways ‘Entertainment Knockout’ was being broadcasted live. The first was to purchase tickets and watch on set, and the second was to purchase a virtual ticket and watch from the virtual seats online. The latter method was a lot cheaper. But now the people who had purchased the virtual tickets because of the cheaper prices were now regretting it.

In fact, when the episode was previewed, they had briefly mentioned Ye Luohan. But they didn’t dare mention him too much since they didn’t dare believe that Ye Luohan, who had never participated in shows, would actually come. And the audience who saw it naturally didn’t believe it either. That was why there were numerous people in the empire regretting not coming to watch it in person now.

However, no matter how much the audience regretted it now, the program would still continue. But the backstage director was ecstatic since the rating for tonight’s program would definitely reach new heights. Moreover, there was a high possibility that this new record would never be surpassed in the future either.

“Oh my, the audience is very enthusiastic. Since you are this enthusiastic, you’ll make your Male God too shy and unable to speak.” Liu Ziqian harmonized the atmosphere on the scene because if they continued like this, the remaining actors wouldn’t be able to introduce themselves.

However, no one heard Liu Ziqian’s words. “Can everyone settle down?” As soon as Ye Luohan spoke, everyone immediately became obedient children and quieted down. Seeing this, Liu Ziqian couldn’t help but stare wide-eyed, pretending to be angry.

“Can’t you guys not be so obvious in the difference in treatment towards us? Leave me some face at least.”

“If you hadn’t said anything, nobody would have noticed. Now let’s invite the next person to give their introduction. I hope the audience could restrain their excitement a bit. If it’s like this for every person, then we won’t be able to record our program,” Yang Leyao deliberately tried to petition them.

In fact, everyone knew that the next person didn’t have as much influence as Ye Luohan. Therefore, the audience’s reaction to the next person wouldn’t be as grand. This obvious contrast would be awkward for the other celebrities, and Yang Leyao’s words had just resolved this awkwardness.

“Hello, everyone. I’m Zhao Hongtao. I play Zhao Pengxuan in the ‘Interstellar Mecha.’”

“Good evening, everyone. I’m Li Yuanbo who plays Lin Xiujie.”

“Hi and good evening. I’m Shen Chuxia, and I play Du Birou.”

“Hello, everyone. I’m Luo Lingxing. I play Du Zixuan.”

After these several people were introduced, the hosts asked a few questions related to the movie, helping to leave an impression on the audience. Afterward, the game session that everyone was most looking forward to commenced.

As mentioned earlier, the game portion of ‘Entertainment Knockout’ was relatively large. Especially the part where they teased the male and female leads who came to promote their films. They would also choose various activities for the actors to do.

“I should be the one to draw this time, but I thought the Male God should do it instead. So, Male God, why don’t you come draw?” Su Zhirui said and handed the raffle box to Ye Luohan.

Ye Luohan didn’t pretend to act coy and directly drew one, opened it, and read it out loud, “Squat ten times while princess carrying your partner as well as affectionately say to them ‘I luv you.’” As soon as the voice fell, the entire audience exploded in cheers. However, to this, everyone expressed that they were already used to it since they would act like this every time Ye Luohan opened his mouth. It would be difficult not to get used to it.

The host directly ignored the audience and asked Shen Chuxia, “Goddess, how would you feel if the Male God said ‘I luv you’ to you?”

Shen Chuxia’s smile was bright as she said, “Of course I would have butterflies, but I don’t think I’ll be lucky enough to hear the Male God say those words to me.”

“Huh? Why not?” the host asked in shock. In fact, the audience was also confused since Shen Chuxia was the female lead in the movie, so of course she would be Ye Luohan’s partner. If he didn’t say it to her, who would he say it to?

Shen Chuxia blinked playfully but didn’t answer the question.

“Actually, the final ending of the movie had been changed, so the partner was naturally also changed,” Qian Xuewen calmly said.

As a result, a small number of people in the audience were excited. They didn’t dare believe it as they stared wide-eyed as they shouted Luo Lingxing’s name.

Those people were fans of the Han-Xing ship after seeing the partner photos of Luo Lingxing and Ye Luohan. At first, they believed that the Male God would partner up with Shen Chuxia for the games so they were a bit disappointed, but who would have known that things would have taken a new turn. They couldn’t be more excited.

The host obviously heard the shouting and looked toward Qian Xuewen. Qian Xuewen shrugged but didn’t deny it.

As expected of the experienced host, he immediately shifted his attention from Shen Chuxia to Luo Lingxing.

Since Luo Lingxing was a newcomer and wasn’t used to vying for the camera, his presence was very weak since the start of the program. He hadn’t even said a few words, but he didn’t think anything of it. Now that everyone’s gaze had focused on him in the matter of seconds, he still didn’t think anything of it. He just blinked in confusion as if he was a bit out of it.

“Haha… Male God, you should quickly start, then,” Liu Ziqian said to Ye Luohan.

He could see that Luo Lingxing was a bit out of it and hadn’t heard what was happening. But this way, his reaction would be even more climatic. Moreover, selling a male/male pair would make the audience a lot more excited than a normal male/female pair.

Without the slightest bit of rejection, Ye Luohan walked in front of Luo Lingxing and picked him up in a princess hold. The audience sounded again in an even more ear-deafening scream.

When Luo Lingxing was picked up, his hands subconsciously wrapped around Ye Luohan’s neck. He was a bit puzzled as he asked, “What are you doing?”

Ye Luohan smiled at him, then started the squats. When he finished, he affectionately looked at him and said in a deep and magnetic voice, “I luv you.”
