On Saturday, the film crew for ‘Destined Immortals’ finally assembled on location to officially start filming.
At the opening ceremony, all the main actors arrived and showed their faces.
The whole crew had gathered to perform a ceremony to bless the production. The male and female leads stood on either side of the director while wearing black ancient costumes issued by the crew, and they both held three incense sticks in their hands for the ceremony. After the ceremony was completed, the director personally pulled back the red cloth that had been covering the camera and the crew members chorused:
“Good luck to our production!”
“Good luck to our production!”
“Good luck to our production!”
The producer this time was actually Shao Chengyue’s aunt, a woman who was already over forty but was so well-maintained that she looked to only be in her early thirties.
She had the short hairstyle of a capable businesswoman, and after the ceremony was complete she went around to give a red envelope to every actor on the crew.
Ruan Tian accepted the red envelope with both hands and politely gave her thanks.
After the producer went by, Ruan Tian covered her mouth and coughed a few times. Looking around, she really felt that this Shao Chengyue was definitely a real life prince. The supporting cast was a host of veteran actors and actresses, and the second female lead was even someone who was nearly a Movie Queen. On top of that, the producer, the director, the cinematographer, the post-production crew… all of them were talents with deep backgrounds.
The crew had originally wanted to start filming in a low-key manner but, in the end, there were just too many people coming and going in this area so their location was quickly exposed. Because of that, all sorts of ‘little sisters’, scalpers, and paparazzi chased the stars to the set and took photos of the gathered crew.
Ruan Tian and Shao Chengyue were obviously the male and female lead this time, but their expressions during the ceremony were both a bit distant and cold.
The photos quickly spread on the Internet.
@RiceCircleGirl: I received a private message from a fan just now, it seems ‘Destined Immortals’ started filming today. The female lead should be Ruan Tian while the male lead is Shao Chengyue. Ruan Tian is indeed worthy of her title of ‘male god harvester’ 【photo】.
“This picture tells a clear story: We are just colleagues!”
“Is this the legendary arranged marriage?”
“Little ancestor Shao looks as indifferent as ever. He really is the coldest and lowest-key rich second generation star in the entertainment industry. Of course, the key point is that his fame is always being overshadowed by his father.”
“According to the theory that everyone should be familiar with, all arranged marriages will eventually lead to true love.”
“Poster above, don’t try to put gold on Ruan Tian’s face, okay? Does she deserve it?”
“It’s impossible for the Shao family to let their only male heir marry a woman who’s already on her second marriage.”
“Good, we’ve barely even started but the CP fans are already here.”
“What’s wrong with a second marriage? Why should we women embarrass another woman?! Don’t discriminate!”
The topic skipped around wildly, moving quickly from arranged marriages to whether or not it was okay to discriminate against second marriages.
The netizens clamored for a long time before finally returning to the real topic.
They were a bit surprised to find that Ruan Tian was really going to be the female lead on this project, even though that information had been revealed long ago.
Back then, everyone had been mocking Ruan Tian and saying that she had used all her connections to get resources that weren’t even any good. In their eyes, such a shoddy drama was barely even worth notice.
But who would have expected that the male lead of ‘Destined Immortals’ would turn out to be Shao Chengyue?! Him joining the show changed everything!
The crew had all been replaced by big-time top players in the circle. Any one of the people Shao Chengyue had brought with him could single-handedly drag a show like this up at least a level or two.
Besides the original author of the work who was working as the screenwriter and wasn’t very notable, everyone else on the crew was famous.
Meanwhile, the TianTian Group had been enduring the taunting from the outside world all this time for the sake of their star. They hadn’t wanted to create a ruckus online and create a bad influence on Ruan Tian.
Thus with this news, the TianTian Group, who had been enduring for a long time, suddenly felt as if they could finally vent a little.
“Haha, I really sympathize with TianBaby’s anti-fans, it seems that TianBaby will never do as you guys wish.”
“I want to buy some lemons for the anti-fans. Will one cart be enough for you to eat? It’s still early, but our TianBaby’s resources are only getting better and better. You all can just watch and get angry by yourselves~”
“TianBaby, fight on! Give them a punch for us!”
“Ah! I want to go over and support TianBaby in person!”
However, while the TianTian Group members were all feeling impassioned, they suddenly realized that their TianBaby didn’t have an official fan club or even a fan-made one.
Thinking about it, they realized that they didn’t know much about who was working for Ruan Tian. They didn’t even know who her agent was. Some of them even began to suspect that Qin Pictures, that stingy company, hadn’t even given Ruan Tian an agent at all.
Therefore, the 30,000 strong TianTian Group rushed over to express their dissatisfaction with Qin Pictures.
TianBabyIsBest: 【@QinPictures, is anyone there? Haven’t you arranged any marketing for your imperial concubine? 】
TianBabyIsBest: 【@QinPictures, you didn’t even send a bodyguard or an assistant to our TianBaby, why don’t you all just go home and give up on this industry? 】
TianBabyIsBest: 【@QinPictures, TianBaby has been enduring ridicule from the masses calling her as your imperial concubine, so isn’t it about time she started receiving the treatment of an imperial concubine? 】
