I Know Everything - Chapter 503
Chapter 503: New Plan.
The happiest person when Chen Huan moved to the school was the principal Zhu Xiaoxi.
This meant that Chen Huan wasn’t busy with other things and was fully focused on helping with the tutoring.
The fact that Chen Huan would enroll in China Agriculture University was already confirmed, which made Zhu Xiaoxi feel regretful.
If Chen Huan took the college entrance exam, Virtuous Middle School may be this year’s Zhejiang college entrance exam champion.
This would be an achievement that would accompany his lifetime.
That was why Zhu Xiaoxi prepared two rooms next to each other for Chen Huan.
One was an office while the other one was a single bedroom room and it was pretty comfy except he needed to go elsewhere for the toilet.
Chen Huan just came here to avoid annoyance so he obviously didn’t care about the area too much.
However, the School Flowers would obviously accompany Chen Huan after the tutoring until dinner was over before leaving.
According to the old rules, one person would be responsible for the meal each day and they would all take turns.
Many students envied the fortune of Chen Huan but completely couldn’t get any of it.
Shui Qianyu wasn’t happy about this.
Because even if Chen Huan hid in school, the small noodle shop and the Shui Family were ‘harassed’ by the other people and even her got annoyed, let alone Chen Huan.
There was an even smarter one who directly offered 1 million for a bottle.
After all, everyone knew Chen Huan loved Shui Qianyu so she must certainly have some in her hands.
Shui Qianyu just closed the door in the face of those people.
While lamenting that women could be really crazy, Chen Huan received a guest at school.
The guest was Xin Changkong.
Chen Huan received a call from Zhu Mei saying that it would be a waste of someone at Xin Changkong’s lelve for him to help out in her team.
She suggested that Chen Huan should let Xin Changkong direct a TV series if he had any.
Even some simple commercial films would also do.
Although Xin Changkong had been shunned for many years, his foundation was still there.
He wasn’t at his peak but he still could direct medium projects.
So Xin Changkong was ‘kicked’ out of Zhu Mei’s Team.
Chen Huan felt amused at that and thought Zhu Mei was treating Xin Changkong a bit too well and valued him greatly.
But this was something difficult to do when Xin Changkong came back.
He had cultivated a good director now but he couldn’t have the person dodle at home, right?
It would be a waste of resources.
It wasn’t like Chen Huan didn’t have any TV series.
He had two recalls.
He had even more for movies.
However, Xin Changkong’s current state was certainly not good enough for those cult classic movies.
Chen Huan wouldn’t use the quota given by the Good Lord if it wasn’t for a cult classic.
TV series wasn’t that difficult.
But which one to choose?
Chen Huan asked Xin Changkong’s opinion.
“I don’t want to do comedies for now.” Xin Changkong honestly said, “The reason why I wanted to help in Zhu Mei’s team is because I want to learn another type of filming…actually, in the past few years, I’ve been thinking about trying other genres of films.”
“Other genres?” Chen Huan started to ponder.
Xin Changkong just nodded his head and said, “Right! Lord Hao He can not only make artsy movies but also action movies such as ‘Undercover Detective’ and it looked concise and cool, it wasn’t as sad or emotional as in his artsy movies.”
“There was also Director Gong Sibo who can not only make dark movies but also lively mainstream movies. The genre switch is easy to him and no awkwardness is felt from his movies.”
“I used to be too naïve and arrogant, and used to believe that I could stand at the top if I developed one type of movie to the extreme but now I know that I must reach their level to reach the pinnacle of a director!”
“Do you think you can direct another genre now?” Chen Huan asked.
“Even if I’m not good enough now, I will give my all to learn while shooting.” Xin Changkong gave a little smile, “Unfortunately, Director Zhu Mei feels that our style is too different so it seems that I have to find another way to learn.”
“I heard…” Chen Huan slowly said, “That Teacher Chu has a TV series but isn’t in the same genre as ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ so he didn’t consider you.”
“Oh?” Xin Changkong interest was prickled, “Isn’t Teacher Chu going to write the second season of ‘Princess Returning Pearl’?”
“Who told you that?”
“Everyone is saying that! For a TV series with such a high rating and high reviews, shouldn’t you write a second season as soon as possible?” Xin Changkong said, “I heard that TV stations are offering 120 million yuan for the first round of broadcast rights and this isn’t even the final offer yet!”
120 million was said to come from Xiangnan TV.
However, they didn’t say that directly to Xin Changkong but came from some entertainment news.
120 million wasn’t that hard to understand when the average rating was more than 38%.
Coupled with the Shanhai Streaming who would definitely take it one step further with their offer, Chen Huan and Chu Liuxiang definitely would get 200 million in revenue from the first round of broadcast alone.
Why wouldn’t they do such a lucrative business?
Xin Changkong felt it was unbelievable.
But Chen Huan shook his head, “Teacher Chu will only write a single season for ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ and even if there’s a second season, it wouldn’t be written by him.”
“Why?” Xin Changkong’s eyes widened.
“Because the first season is enough and continuing it would be like writing a deplorable sequel to a masterpiece.” Chen Huan spoke frankly, “Don’t you think the story already told everything?”
Xin Changkong wanted to say to let him write and could probably come up with dozens of good arcs.
It didn’t need any special writing and it wouldn’t be bad as long as it followed the previous plotline.
But then he thought a super writer like Teacher Chu couldn’t do it so how could he do it?
What could be glanced from what Teacher Lu said was Teacher Chu felt there was no way to go beyond it and it would just keep repeating the same thing so it was better to not write it.
Teacher Chu was truly a pure person!
Hundreds of millions in revenue in front was nothing but fart to him!
Of course, it was also the same before as the hundreds of millions Teacher Chu earned before was donated away, such a person indeed worthy of respect!
Seeing that Xin Changkong wasn’t speaking, Chen Huan spoke up, “You should go rest back at home for half a month while I ask Teacher Chu to trim the script a bit before calling you over, anything wrong with this?”
“No!” Xin Changkong became excited again, “I actually don’t need any rest!”
“How can you not need rest?” Chen Huan said, “Isn’t this like returning home after making it? You already gained fame and fortune so you can go back to your parents to give them your respect and make them feel proud!”
“I actually already went back.” Xin Changkong subconsciously replied.
“Was ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ blown up when you went back during the Spring Festival? Did you make tens of millions at that time?” Chen Huan asked.
Xin Changkong had nothing to say to that.
Chen Huan was right.
He was now famous all over the country and his parents would use his name to brag when talking to their friends.
This was something rare as his parents were used to being ashamed to talk about their son.
And with the big bonus given by Teacher Lu and Teacher Chu, he could do a lot of things now.
“Alright, it just happened that my dad’s legs aren’t what they used to be any more so I’ll buy him a villa!” Xin Changkong made a decision, “The houses in my area are pretty cheap and I’ll buy one for my brother and sister. It would be better to be close so it’s more convenient… when I was at my lowest, they didn’t give up on me and it’s time for me to repay them back!”
Xin Changkong thought of his girlfriend as he said that.
And thought of his child who died before he was born.
Two lines of tears flowing down his eyes before he knew it.
