Hello Mr. King Chapter 190
Even if the entertainment reporters managed to sneak in, Kang Ran must have someone as her backer since she was invited. Even before publishing, this kind of news would be cut off by Kang Rans agency.
If her agency failed to stop it, Kang Rans backer would manage it.
"Sometimes I suspect that you might be an old fogey of the industry," He Wei was surprised that Yun Xiangxiang would ask such a question.
He Wei was pleased when she could shrewdly notice the relationship between the news of Fang Nanyuan and her back then.
But the news this time was unrelated to her. Under his protection, Yun Xiangxiang never came into contact with things like this. Even so, she still knew the industrys rules like the back of her hand.
"Did Xingzhous agency do something?" Yun Xiangxiang voiced out her conjecture.
He Xingzhous negative news was coming in droves. The reprimands that accused him of selling and taking drugs were getting louder and louder.
One way to calm the public furore was to create a bigger one.
This bombshell of news concerning Kang Ran would undoubtedly fill the pages of the entertainment industry.
"En," He Wei was curious. "What else did you guess?"
"Everyones in the same industry. Do things sloppily, and things can get ugly. No matter how stiff the competition can get, we wouldnt announce the fight in public. If Xingzhous agency is going this far, that means the matter of Xingzhou trafficking drugs is entwined with Kang Rans agency."
When He Xingzhous agency did this, not only did they publicly declare war on Kang Rans agency, they offended Kang Rans backer too.
If they were not driven to desperation, He Xingzhous agency would not be prepared to go down together.
"Xingyu Company was created by He Xingzhous grandfather for He Xingzhou," He Wei had only gotten the news too.
He Xingzhou was somewhat the son of the uber rich but was scarcely known to anyone. He Xingzhou had always been humble, climbing up the ladder from being an extra.
He was twenty-seven now, and had been in the entertainment industry for seven years. It was not until the last couple of years that he started to show his shine.
In Xingyu Company, he was not the first actor to be strongly supported, and was not the first to be meticulously groomed. Nobody related Xingyu Company with him.
If it was not for the news of He Xingzhous alleged drug trafficking, perhaps nobody in the industry would know about He Xingzhous background.
It was little wonder why He Xingzhou could do what he wanted, such as not bringing his assistant or agent along. It was not because he was popular now; it was because his agency belonged to his family.
It was also to nobodys shock why Xingyu Company did not fear Kang Rans backer and managed to quickly find out Kang Rans company was pulling the strings in this matter
If he was a normal person, He Xingzhou would fall if he was embroiled in such a scandal. His agency would not choose to protect him.
Kang Rans agency probably did not expect He Xingzhou to share this relationship with Xingyu Company. They bumped into a wall this time.
"Hows it going with Xingzhous case?" Yun Xiangxiang asked concernedly.
"Another very incriminating piece of evidence appeared. He Xingzhou had a bank card he forgot to cancel. He didnt really care for it himself. Now its been found out that the card would have some money credited to it from time to time. The card has a few million yuan in it now," He Wei explained.
"He Xingzhou himself was unclear about the sources of this money. One of the source accounts is held by a drug trafficker caught by the police last year."
Yun Xiangxiangs heart sank. The situation was getting worse for He Xingzhou.
"It might not be a great situation, but the evidence is still insufficient. He Xingzhou did not plead guilty either. More and more people are paying attention to this matter now too," He Wei consoled Yun Xiangxiang.
After talking to He Wei, Yun Xiangxiang went home. Before starting her practice, Song Mian called her, "Are you home now?"
"Just returned. Impeccable timing," Yun Xiangxiang replied with a smile.
"I am connected with you," Song Mian started being mushy again.
Yun Xiangxiang had an sudden urge of pinching Song Mians face, "I heard Brother Wei said you donated the costumes for my new film?"
"A senior just happened to want to show off," Song Mian chuckled. "I asked for her help."
Yun Xiangxiang didnt want to know if such a coincidence happened. Song Mian would just wave her question away with, "I wont lie to you."
She finally understood that Song Mian had more than one way of making something look like a coincidence even if it was not.
"Then how should we handle the costume after this?" Every crew had their own way of handling the costumes. Now that Song Mian interfered, they couldnt leave these costumes to the crew.
"Relax, I have plans for them. My girlfriend wont say that I am a spendthrift," Song Mian swore.
Have you not been a spendthrift?
Yun Xiangxiang retorted silently, but she shifted the topic, "Do you need anything at this hour?"
"He Xingzhous case is not that simple. You should stop following it," Song Mian urged.
"Not simple?" Yun Xiangxiang also thought that it was getting more and more complex. However, she had a feeling that the "not that simple" said by Song Mian was different from the one she had in mind.
"Up until this point, there are two possiblities: First, if He Xingzhou is indeed a drug trafficker, who is his superior?"
"Second, if he was set up by someone else, why would the ones who set him up be related to actual drug traffickers, and could even have them credit money into He Xingzhous card?"
"So, no matter which possibility it is, drug-related syndicates are definitely involved," Yun Xiangxiang realized.
Everyone in the drug-related syndicates were not ordinary thugs. They were cruel people that have possessed firearms and were capable of true evil.
Poking her nose where it shouldnt be might draw unnecessary trouble to her.
"I hope this criminal gang can be destroyed quickly," Yun Xiangxiang loathed drug-related syndicates the most.
"Dont worry, someone is just dying to find them," Song Mian chuckled. "Ill give you a number. Call it if you come across any danger in the country."
"Okay, Ill be careful. You take care too."
Song Mian was currently deep in a jungle in the mountains. Yun Xiangxiang was no fan of sports in the wild, but she played in a lot of films set in the wild. Even the crew would be met with dangers.
After finishing her call with Song Mian, Yun Xiang Xiang saved the number he sent, and noted it as "Savior."
Since He Xingzhous case was related to such a major thing, Yun Xiangxiang had to remind He Wei and Lu Jin.
It seemed like the case wont be concluded soon. As long as He Xingzhous case was still up, producers of "The Kings Plan" probably didnt know the path they should take.
After that, she spent all her spare time after class to concentrate on practising and catching up on her basics. Since she had to film in Chongqing and Shenshi, she couldnt ask Yuan Pingqiu to tag along. It was fortunate that Yuan Pingqiu told her he had students in both cities. They could help train her when the time came.
She took leave on Wednesday to take her practical exams. After finishing it, she made an appointment with Yang Xin to take the theory exam one day before the film festival.
After going to classes for two days, Yun Xiangxiang handed her application for leave to the head of the course.
The head of the course almost had a heart attack when he saw that it was a three-month leave again. "A new subject is added this semester."
"I know, Teacher Hou," Yun Xiangxiang nodded obediently.
