This was the first time Luo Lingxing faced such a situation. In the past, all he knew was that as long as he entered the entertainment industry, he could gain fans and gather Power of Faith. However, he didn’t understand most of the rules of the real entertainment industry.
Although he occasionally encountered some difficulties, he was able to solve them to smoothly reach his current position. However, as his status improved, more and more problems followed.
“Xiao Luo, the entertainment industry has never been a clean place. Although your popularity is rising rapidly, after all, you can’t compare to an A-lister. Once you also become an A-list celebrity, your reports will be even more valuable. When the sight placed on you is even more, you will encounter even more of these situations. Therefore, you must be conscious of everything you do, and you can’t do whatever you want. There are some things you can’t do without a clear conscience,” Chen Hongliang seriously said to Luo Lingxing.
He could see that Luo Lingxing was a very willful person. His temperament was relatively indifferent. People like him would easily succeed and could easily attract disaster. If they couldn’t keep this under control, everything he had achieved so far would be for naught. The entertainment industry had always been a cruel place.
Luo Lingxing looked at the report and didn’t speak for a while. After a long time, he finally nodded to Chen Hongliang.
He thought too simplistically of the entertainment industry. The cultivation world of his previous life was also very complicated, but they were completely different from each other. In the cultivation world, the strong ruled. As long as you were strong enough, you could ignore everything and do whatever you wanted. Because all plots and sneak attacks were just a joke compared to absolute strength. It was nothing to be afraid of.
However, the entertainment industry was different. This wasn’t a place you could continue forward if you were the strongest. Because there were too many things involved, the love of the fans, and the interests of yourself and others may differ. Many years of hard work could all go to waste in an instant. Even if you were a film king or queen who stood at the top, you still needed to pay attention to what you said because public opinion was very powerful.
For the first time, Luo Lingxing felt the effects of the unspoken roles of the entertainment industry.
For the whole day, besides quickly integrating into his role for his shoots, he spent the rest of the time even more quiet than usual, as if he was thinking about something.
Chen Hongliang knew that he (LLX) had listened to his words, but he didn’t know if he should be happy or sad about this matter. He also didn’t know if it was cruel to say those words to a teenager or if it was for his own good. However, since the youth wanted to continue in the entertainment industry, he needed to know these matters or else it would be too late to regret it if something really did happen. Moreover, he believed that with Luo Lingxing’s qualifications, he would quickly become even more powerful and have more eyes on him. Therefore, it was better to say these words early.
Luo Lingxing earnestly thought about Chen Hongliang’s words for the entire day. He knew they were said for his own good, but after thinking about it for a long time, he still decided to do whatever he wanted, without shame. After all, only this way could he conform to his cultivation path.
By showing his true self to his fans and others, the Power of Faith obtained would be in its purest form. If he hid his true self and turned into someone who fans liked even more, this would go against the way of the heavens. Even if he obtained more Power of Faith this way, the Power of Faith he obtained would contain hidden dangers.
If Chen Hongliang knew that Luo Lingxing had spent an entire day to reach this conclusion, who knew if he would vomit blood.
“What’s wrong? Are you feeling unwell?” After Ye Luohan finished filming a scene, he saw Luo Lingxing sitting in the corner by himself. His brows were slightly furrowed and he didn’t have a good expression.
“Huh? Oh, I’m fine.” Luo Lingxing returned from his thoughts. Since he’d already thought it through, this problem could now be thrown to the back of his mind.
“Are you really okay? Your expression doesn’t look too good. If you aren’t feeling well, you should rest.” Ye Luohan showed rare concern. If someone else were here right now, they would definitely be surprised.
“I’m really fine.” Luo Lingxing felt that his mood had lightened quite a bit, and even his realm, which hadn’t progressed in a long time, had loosened. His mood became even better, and he revealed a huge smile to Ye Luohan without any hesitation.
Ye Luohan was slightly stunned, then also slightly raised the corners of his mouth to reveal a faint smile. He said, “That’s good if that’s the case. Are you free tonight?”
“Hmm?” Luo Lingxing glanced at Ye Luohan, waiting for him to continue.
“It’s just that… I heard that a new restaurant opened nearby, and it looked very good. I wanted to try it, but everyone is busy. If you’re free, why don’t we go try it together?” It was rare for Ye Luohan to say so many words at once. There was a hint of imperceptible shyness on his face.
Luo Lingxing considered it. He didn’t have anything he needed to do tonight. He just resolved an issue, and his realm loosened as well. He believed that he would have a breakthrough very soon. It would be good if he treated himself.
And so, Luo Lingxing and Ye Luohan happily agreed on the time and place to eat tonight without letting their respective agents know.
After the director announced the end of work, he had wanted to talk to the two male protagonists, Luo Lingxing and Ye Luohan, but after going around in a circle, he realized that the two had disappeared.
“They probably went back to rest. They had a lot of shoots these past couple of days,” the assistant director guessed from the sidelines.
“Forget it. Let them rest. It will be the same if we talk tomorrow.” Sun Xueyou didn’t insist. He packed up his things and also went back to rest.
Ye Luohan, who was presumed to be resting at the hotel, took Luo Lingxing to the restaurant they’d booked in advance.
The restaurant wasn’t far from the set. Since it was close to filming locations, numerous celebrities ate here. Therefore, the restaurant had good privacy. The celebrities didn’t have to worry about being photographed by paparazzi while eating here.
“What would you like to eat?” Ye Luohan handed the menu to Luo Lingxing and motioned for him to order.
Luo Lingxing was a bit surprised when he saw the menu. He originally thought that this was a western restaurant, because he noticed that the people of this world liked eating steak and the like. He didn’t think those things were very delicious. Unexpectedly, he didn’t think that the restaurant would serve Chinese food.
And so, Luo Lingxing wasn’t courtious and ordered two of his favorite dishes before handing the menu to Ye Luohan.
“Fish in Chili Oil and Chinese Cabbage with Vinegar, thank you.” Ye Luohan ordered the dishes and returned the menu to the waiter.
Luo Lingxing’s eyes slightly widened. He was a bit surprised because he didn’t expect Ye Luohan to have similar tastes as him. These two dishes were ones that he had wanted to order, but since someone else was treating him, he couldn’t be too greedy.
The restaurant was very quick, and it didn’t take long for the dishes the two ordered to be served. The restaurant also gave them their signature dish for free. Iy was enough for two people to feast.
Ye Luohan turned on the shooting function of his terminal, got up, and very naturally sat next to Luo Lingxing. He placed one hand on Luo Lingxing’s shoulder. The posture was very intimate and caused Luo Lingxing to become stunned.
“I hadn’t posted on Weibo in a long time. Since we came out to eat, I can finally post something,” Ye Luohan explained.
Luo Lingxing nodded. It made sense. Lots of people took photos when they ate to post on Weibo. Didn’t he also do the same yesterday?
“Aren’t you going to post as well?” Ye Luohan tinkered with his Weibo, and asked as if he didn’t care.
“I posted on Weibo yesterday,” Luo Lingxing replied.
Ye Luohan, who was looking at the photo he had just taken, subconsciously paused. He soon returned to normal and said, “You should post more. Fans will be happy. Besides, you didn’t post yourself yesterday. I think your fans will want to see pictures of you more than of others.”
Ye Luohan emphasized the two words “of others,” but it was a pity that Luo Lingxing didn’t catch it.
Luo Lingxing nodded. After thinking about it, he realized it to be the truth. So he planned to take a picture of himself to post on Weibo, but Ye Luohan, who was next to him, had no intention of moving.
They sat at a four person table, with two seats on each side. At this moment, Ye Luohan and Luo Lingxing were sitting side by side. So when Ye Luohan took pictures just now, Luo Lingxing was also in them.
“I just posted a picture with you, so everyone knows that we’re having a late-night snack together. If you only take a picture of yourself, I’m afraid some fans will come up with crazy ideas. Why don’t you just take one with me,” Ye Luohan said without changing his expression.
Luo Lingxing considered it, thinking it made sense. It was better to not stir up any trouble if he could. So he obediently took the photo of the two of them along with the food in front of them and posted it on Weibo.
Luo Lingxing V: I was stimulated by a certain someone yesterday, and now someone is treating me today. So happy~ [photo] [photo]
At this moment, Luo Lingxing didn’t realize that by adding Ye Luohan to his post, it would stir up more “trouble” than if he hadn’t.
Ye Luohan casually swiped to Luo Lingxing’s Weibo page. He saw the text and photos, then happily went to sit on the other side with a satisfied smile.
Look, he was the first person to take a selfie with Luoluo on his page. So it didn’t matter if there was a photo of a person by himself!
After the two posted on Weibo, they didn’t pay attention to it anymore and concentrated on enjoying the dinner before them. Therefore, they didn’t realize just how much of a sensation their Weibo posts had caused. Especially when their agents saw the posts, their expressions were almost as dark as the bottom of a pot.
Chen Hongliang and Xiao Ming couldn’t wait to commit murder at this point. They wanted to tie up these two “troublemakers” and beat them up.
Especially Chen Hongliang. He couldn’t wait to teach Luo Lingxing a good lesson. The words he had said during the day were all said in vain. Not only did he not change, he became even more extreme. Before, it was just a solo picture of Xia Yuan, which only caused a small discussion amongst his fans. But what did he post today? He actually posted a photo of eating dinner with Ye Luohan. Was yesterday’s topic not exciting enough, so he decided to give his fans something bigger to talk about? He really wanted to pry open the youth’s head and see what was going on inside.
Xia Yuan was one thing, after all, he hadn’t entered the entertainment industry yet. Even if everyone talked about him, it would all pass very quickly. However, who was Ye Luohan? He was a superstar. He was the dream Male God of millions of girls. The people who paid attention to him were astronomical. Sending a selfie with this Male God was the same as dropping an atomic bomb into his fan base.
It was one thing if only Luo Lingxing had posted the photo, but why the heck did the Male God post it as well? Chen Hongliang had the urge bang his head against a wall. He was too overwhelmed!
