Daily Life of a Villain’s Mother - Chapter 302
Ch.302 Payback (4)
If this was her daughter’s true character, then it wasn’t surprising why she hated Ye Fan so much.
“Madam, should I turn off the TV?” the butler asked Jian Lan.
Jian Lan waved her hand. “You can return to your room, I’ll call you when I need anything.”
Jian Lan sat down on the sofa in the living room. The live broadcast of “The Superstar Project” was playing on TV. She had checked the broadcasting schedule of this program before and waited in front of the TV when it was about to begin.
The butler thought it was strange as Jian Lan had never paid attention to any news about Tang Jin, nor would she specifically watch the shows where Tang Jin appeared in. So why was she watching this show so punctually tonight?
The butler did not ask any more questions and went straight back to his room.
The broadcast of “The Superstar Project” began, and Jian Lan instantly felt nervous.
She watched with rapt attention as the host came out with a smile. Time passed by slowly and the program slowly progressed.
On the TV, Qi Shu put on a lazy smile. “Our next contestants are Tang Jin and Ye Fan.”
Hearing Ye Fan’s name, Jian Lan suddenly sat up straight, body leaning forward as if she didn’t want to miss a single moment.
Jian Lan’s hand was resting gently on her knee, her movements carrying a natural elegance.
When Tang Jin and Ye Fan both appeared, her eyes were on Ye Fan.
At this moment, there were a lot of netizens discussing enthusiastically about the competition.
“Do you guys remember the scene in ‘Lurking in the Bund’ between Tang Jin and Ye Fan? Feels like she was completely crushed.”
“Heh, how discerning of you. You think you can tell with just one scene? How would you know that Tang Jin wasn’t acting that way on purpose?”
“Tang Jin fans, there’s a limit to washing her reputation, you know? Anyone who’s not blind can see that Ye Fan’s acting is better. We can just wait and see tonight.”
“Stop arguing, it’s an improv performance anyway. We’ll soon know who’s the better actress here.”
Ye Fan and Tang JIn got on the stage together, both of them smiling. They bowed to the judges’ table and the audience.
They did not talk much with each other, as if they were just two ordinary contestants.
Qi Shu glanced at the two of them and said, “Now, we’ll play a clip from ‘Qing Palace Affair’.”
The image on the big screen lit up.
Inside the crimson palace walls, the lightly raining Forbidden City.
It was late at night with deep shadows cast over the place, making the Forbidden City appear especially oppressive and cold to the bone.
The two had become sworn sisters since they were court ladies. Later, one became the domineering Consort Lan, and the other the virtuous Consort De.
In the scene played on the screen, Consort De went to the cold palace to visit Consort Lan. The two quarreled and were in a stalemate for a moment.
It was the scene where their friendship was completely shattered.
The clip was played to the end, bringing back memories of watching the drama for the audience.
It had been more than ten years since this show was broadcast, meaning that the two contestants present, Ye Fan and Tang Jin, could never have remembered the lines.
Qi Shu said, “Qin Yun, the main actress of ‘Qing Palace Affairs’, is also present and one of the judges, so you girls must perform well.”
“So, do you guys have an answer in mind yet?” Qi Shu asked. “Which character will you choose?”
Tang Jin quickly picked up her mic and answered, “I choose Consort Lan.”
Tang Jin breathed a sigh of relief. She knew that Ye Fan’s acting skills were good and had been pressured by her once as well, so she had to fight to gain back her face in this scene.
A faint smile appeared on Ye Fan’s lips and she didn’t look the slightest bit flustered, and was instead calm. “Then I’ll choose COnsort De.”
Comments instantly filled the screen online.
“It’s obvious the one with the domineering personality is easier to play. Tang Jin really is scheming, she instantly took Consort Lan.”
“Even though Consort De is a complex character and can show off an actress’s skills, this is an improv performance without preparation, on stage even. It feels like Ye Fan is at a big disadvantage here.”
