I Know Everything - Chapter 496
Chapter 496: Discord.
Cui Zhong then gave a detailed account of everyone’s offer.
The best offer obviously came from Korea.
The crazy Korean fans were completely obsessed with Chu Liuxiang.
They would like it as long as it came from Chu Liuxiang.
A petition signed by thousands of netizens called for ‘The Tale of Hachiko’ to be published in Korea.
The record setting ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ was also from Chu Liuxiang so the big five TV stations over there were vying to buy the copyrights and the offer they gave was getting better and better.
The highest price was 10 million USD!
Korea had only 50 million people!
Although they were very wealthy, only god knew how they would recoup that 10 million investment.
However, TV stations weren’t stupid as they also wanted the DVDs rights and with the Korea people’s usual tendencies of supporting products, their income shouldn’t be low with that.
They believed they would definitely make a profit if they did this.
The Korean people were also smart as they could rebroadcast it the next year and would be able to get a good rating if it wasn’t prime time.
Over time, the cost of 10 million would be nothing.
The second most crazy were the Japanese.
Firstly, Japan was very fond of ‘Love Letter’ and ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ was also very appreciated, they were also very proud that one of their actors got nominated in the Oscars for his role.
Although Japan already had some Oscars won, it was the first time for them to have an actor being nominated.
Those people in the US already said that even if it was only a nomination, it meant that they were already one of the best and not far away from the winner.
So in the mind of the Japanese people, Masato Naito was already an Oscar-level national treasure!
And Teacher Chu Liuxiang who chose him was the Teacher!
So they regarded Teacher Chu Liuxiang as one of their own.
Japan also had a rival relationship with Korea.
It was said that the highest offer from Korea was 10 million so the lowest offer given by the five major TV stations in Japan was 15 million while their highest was 20 million USD.
Outside of those two countries, the prices offered by the other countries were obviously lower.
Even if they loved ‘Princess Returning Pearl’, especially the other Asian countries, they weren’t as wealthy as Japan and Korea.
The most were from the Thailand TV station who offered 3 million USD.
Buyouts would definitely be a bit of a loss but it was impossible for foreign countries to pay the broadcast fee every year so it was better than nothing.
Europe and the US gave even less.
Could you believe a TV station as big as CBS only offered 500k USD?
Anyways, France’s France 2 also offered 700k USD!
So adding everything up, it would be around 30 million USD excluding Japan and Korea.
The total would be around 60 million USD.
420 million Yuan adding to the previous 180 million, it would become 600 million yuan in income!
After calculating in his mind, Chen Huan said to Cui Zhong happily, “I’ll entrust you guys to help us negotiate then! It’s fine as long as it’s no less than 60 million USD!”
Cui Zhong smiled.
He used to think that both Chen Huan and Chu Liuxiang loved money.
For example, Chen Huan needed 50 million to star in ‘Young Di Renjie’.
At that time Cui Zhong thought he was really daring.
But the princess also had the boldness to really give it.
Then after the situation with ‘Stingy Chu Liuxiang’, it was revealed that along with Teacher Lu Xiaofeng, they almost donated all of their money for the children’s education.
This made Cui Zhong feel really guilty as he thought he misunderstood Teacher Chu and Teacher Lu.
Cui Zhong obviously didn’t think Chen Huan was greedy for money seeing Chen Huan’s happy expression when talking about a big sum of money.
A few days ago, Habao Pay announced again that Lu Xiaofeng and Chu Liuxiang donated another 100 million to the ‘Rural School Construction Project’.
The money probably came from the purchase of the copyrights for 100 million for three years from Shanhai Streaming.
Compared to the noble actions of the other party who donated 100 million at every turn, Cui Zhong felt his thoughts were very inappropriate and disrespectful.
While he was in his thoughts, Chen Huan handed him a folder.
“This is…” Cui Zhong took it.
“This is a variety show I came up with and it should do well.” Chen Huan said, “Take a look and if you’re interested, take it back and see what you can do for this show.”
“Great!” Cui Zhong exclaimed in excitement, “I will talk to the president and quote you a price as soon as possible!”
“It’s not about money.” Chen Huan said with a smile, “All the steps and preparation, the planning of this show, it all requires you to do it yourself… and I’m still pondering whether to give it to you or a TV station.”
“Of course it should be us!” Cui Zhong hurriedly said, “We always worked happily together! Who is more generous than us? We also never lacked trust in you!”
Chen Huan still gave a light smile and shook his head, “It’s not about money.”
It was the second time he said this and he didn’t mention anything about trust.
This made Cui Zhong’s heart tremble.
He thought it was because of how Shanhai Streaming acted in the previous situation, which affected their relationship.
Even Teacher Lu Xiaofeng was like this, what about Teacher Chu Liuxiang then!?
Teacher Chu Liuxiang was being slandered and attacked, and Shanhai Streaming as his closest partner remained silent, Zheng Rongrong hadn’t said anything either.
If it was Cui Zhong himself, he wouldn’t be that magnanimous.
So he shuddered a bit.
His relaxed attitude was immediately put away.
He thought at the beginning that with the strength of Shanhai Streaming and generosity of the princess, it wouldn’t be a problem to get Teacher Lu’s variety show.
But the other party didn’t have the intention of surely giving it to you anymore.
He also understood that Teacher Lu was definitely not for the money.
Except the problem between their relationship, was there a meaning about TV stations that could bring Teacher Chu and Teacher Lu big fame and attention?
Cui Zhong didn’t know.
But he knew that he must report this matter to the president.
In the mind of the president, Teacher Lu and Teacher Chu were very important, Teacher Lu even more so!
If both of them had thought of distancing themselves from Shanhai Streaming, things were going to get bad!
Wouldn’t Shanhai Streaming unequaled momentum be put to a halt?
