On the other side, Xia Xibei had also received a call from Nie Zehai.
“Yes,” Nie Zehai said in a low voice. “Your slot is arranged for tomorrow afternoon, so you’d better take a leave.”
Nie Zehai told her the address, and added, “Just be your normal self when you get there, and it shouldn’t be a problem. I’ve gotten in touch with their crew.”
“Alright, thank you,” Xia Xibei replied. An idea occurred to her, and she said with a laugh, “If I pass, I’m gonna have to buy you a great meal!”
“It doesn’t matter,” Nie Zehai countered, “It all depends on your own competence. if you’re not competent, I won’t be of much help to you either.”
“I have to thank you for this opportunity regardless,” Xia Xibei laughed again. “By the way, are you on set right now?”
“Yes, I’m currently working on a new TV series.”
“There must be a lot of beautiful ladies on set.”
“Not just beautiful ladies, there are many handsome guys here as well!” Nie Zehai joked cheerfully.
“A lot of girls must be fond of you, brother Nie, since you’re so good-looking.”
Nie Zehai did not think much of it, still laughing. “You’re wrong. I’m still just an unknown actor, so who’s gonna like me?”
He had only a small number of fans currently, which made him seem rather pathetic.
“Haven’t I told you? Brother Nie, you’re going to be famous very soon! By then, there will certainly be a lot of girls who are fond of you.”
“Hahaha!” Nie Zehai burst out in laughter, “If that comes true, I’m gonna thank you for your kind words!”
“When that happens, you have to beware of those crazy sasaeng fans.”
Nie Zehai couldn’t help but burst out in laughter once again, following along, “That’s for sure! I’ll surely be careful.”
Having crazy sasaeng fans basically meant that this particular person had become a sensation. Nie Zehai understood what Xia Xibei meant.
They hung up the call after chatting for a while.
Xia Xibei’s expression turned somewhat cold as she thought of the predicament that Nie Zehai would encounter later in life.
However, there was no way she would let those monsters and devils have it their way, not while she was around!
Song Jiaren was overwhelmed with excitement when she heard that Xia Xibei was about to go for an audition.
“Don’t lose your calm, I believe you can do it!” She whirled on her spot with extreme delight, “You’ll be famous once you pass the audition and star in a film! Oh, right! It’s time for me to start a fandom!”
It would be rather tough for an artist to maneuver around without an established fandom to support them.
Especially in this era of technology, without fans to help them with numerical figures on social media, how were they supposed to promote themselves?
Furthermore, they would need fans to charge forth and counter hostile attacks from competitors.
If their fans were hardcore enough, no one would dare throw mud on them.
On the other hand, rudderless, chaotic fans would spoil an artist’s reputation.
Having spent enough time on the internet, Song Jiaren understood this very well. Therefore, she had to take the initiative to set up a fandom!
Song Jiaren’s words made Xia Xibei laugh.
“No need to rush, I’m still early in the process. If I don’t pass the audition, I’ll have to wait a while longer before I can debut. It’s still too early for you to set up the fandom.”
“No way!” Song Jiaren glared at her with her hands on her waist, arguing, “You will definitely pass! It’s not early to start preparing for it now!”
Seeing her tenacity, Xia Xibei had no choice but to nod, “Alright then, it’s not too early. Anyway, you just have to make sure that you put your studies first. If your grades aren’t good, you have to put a stop to everything immediately!”
“No worries, I’ll be just fine!” Song Jiaren promised with a pat on her chest, then showed up in front of Tang Luo. “Tang Luo, you’re good with computers, right? How about editing Bei’s photos afterwards?”
Tang Luo looked at the speechless Xia Xibei, then nodded, “Sure.”
