I Know Everything - Chapter 517
Chapter 517: You Can Do It!
Yang Feng was very happy that Pomelo took the initiative to get ‘The Brain’ from Chen Huan.
Everyone was a little worried that the haughty Yang Feng would be bothered by it.
But fact had proven that Yang Feng was indeed Yang Feng as he could be aloof but not petty.
He couldn’t request it himself from Chen Huan due to his weird self-confidence but he couldn’t stop his own employees from doing the right thing, which was asking Chen Huan for a variety show was definitely the correct decision!
On the day the contract had been signed for ‘The Brain’, Yang Feng invited Chen Huan to a meal.
This was also rare for Chen Huan to leave his school.
The young man gave Yang Feng face not because Yang Feng was the second richest man in China but because Yang Feng helped him before.
He entered the private room and Yang Feng was there alone.
His two inseparable bodyguards stayed outside.
Boss Yang’s two bodyguards weren’t ordinary as they were from the most elite squad as they had to ensure his safety in the direst situation.
“There you are!” Yang Feng stood up and invited Chen Huan to sit down with a smile, “Little Huan, sit down! Sit down!”
Chen Huan sat down and said with a smile, “President Yang…”
“Why are you calling me president Yang again? Didn’t I tell you to call me Brother Feng?” Yang Feng said in a mock angry voice.
“Well, I called you that in front of Kaixin and she said I took advantage of her so I’m not allowed to call you that anymore.” Chen Huan spread his hands in helplessness.
Yang Feng couldn’t help but laugh.
Yang Kaixin was 4 years older than Chen Huan but if Chen Huan called her father Brother Feng, would she have to call him Uncle Chen?
In the eyes of the little princess, that was unacceptable.
He could imagine what it was like when her daughter acted like a spoiler kid and very few people could handle it.
However, Yang Kaixin doing that didn’t annoy people but made them feel amused, perhaps this was the privilege of being beautiful.
”Alright, call me whatever you want!” Yang Feng was an easygoing person so he poured Chen Huan a drink and said, “Speaking of which, I haven’t thanked you yet! Kaixin has been happy whether she’s going to school or coming back home, her self-confidence has increased a lot! It was obviously coming from her success with ‘Princess Returning Pearl’!”
“Kaixin played her role well and the role of Ziwei suited her well.” Chen Huan said.
“You don’t have to be polite in front of me.” Yang Feng waved his hands, “Too many actors could play the role of Ziwei. Even if you’re giving me face, you could have just given her a minor supporting role… but you gave her a role she could shine and a role that can build her confidence, this is you helping her grow and it’s all you!”
After a pause, Yang Feng exclaimed, “I didn’t give any less money to other films and directors before but the role they gave always felt unsuitable with Kaixin characteristic, very awkward. The role of Ziwei is very suitable, I like it, my wives likes it! Her grandparents loves it even more!”
‘Princess Returning Pearl’ was a great TV series that attracted both the old and the young.
Both the elderly and the youngsters loved it so the audience’s rage was pretty wide, otherwise it wouldn’t be called a national TV series.
So it was no surprise that the elderlies in Yang Kaixin loved it.
“Kaixin is lucky then.” Chen Huan said.
“Yeah, she has good luck, her father isn’t doing too bad either, haha!” Yang Feng laughed as he lifted his drink and clinked glass with Chen Huan’s before saying, “By the way, I have to ask, when is ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ second season going to be made? It isn’t only me but the fans are all eager for it.”
“I personally think that the first season is enough. It already told what it had to be told and there’s nothing left to tell anymore.” Chen Huan said seriously.
“Huh? It’s really over just like that?” Yang Feng couldn’t hide his disappointment on his face, “Is there any problem? Don’t worry, you can say it, whether it’s money or contacts, I have plenty.”
“It’s not that.” Chen Huan shook his head, “If I say I want to shoot it, everyone would happily do so and there wouldn’t be any problem. But I just don’t want to make a disgraceful sequel.”
Yang Feng nodded at that.
He understood what Chen Huan meant. This was one of the ways to keep a TV series’ status as a classic.
Stopped abruptly at the peak and let the audience wonder about it for an eternity.
If the second season was rushed with the plots, characters etc… and it wasn’t as good as the first season, it would probably affect the series’ reputation so it was something that must be considered.
“If for whatever reasons you plan to shoot a second season, remember to leave a place for Kaixin!” Yang Feng could only encourage this.
“Don’t worry, she will have to come even if she doesn’t want to.” Chen Huan replied with a smile.
The both of them put aside this matter and started to eat for a bit before the topic went to ‘The Brain’.
“I saw the design for ‘The Brain’ and it’s very good, very innovative!” Yang Feng praised, “This type of IQ tests will let the people see the power of intelligence and it will definitely be beneficial to the country and its people! Lest they start chasing after celebrities and forget about the people that contributed to the society the most.”
“The variety show is good but very hard to produce.” Chen Huan followed suit, “I wrote in the planning and said that President Yang has to personally appear, did you see it?”
“I saw it!” Yang Feng said, “Why do you want me to? Are they going to still be unwilling even after the program team made their intention clear?”
“There are many facets of the problem.” Chen Huan said, “Firstly, this is just an online variety show and it’s not as dazzling as a TV station one. To put it bluntly, those relatives or friends can feel proud by appearing on TV but isn’t it a bit of a drop in prestige if it was in streaming?”
“Secondly, the participating students or outstanding people are all very prideful. If you, the second richest man in China, personally invite them, they will feel pride from it, which will greatly decrease the difficulty of doing so.”
“Of course, this doesn’t have to be like that every time. As long as there’s a good start and everyone could see the fun and educational nature of the show, there would naturally be more people willing to come participate in the show or be the judge.”
“Okay.” Yang Feng listened to him and agreed, “I value talents so inviting them won’t be embarrassing… By the way, Little Huan, how about I become a guest for the first season? Or even a judge?”
The spotlight loving Yang Feng naturally couldn’t let go of being in the show that observed and judged geniuses.
He needed a platform for him to show his talent and eloquence.
Was there any show that could let him express himself better than ‘The Brain’?
Once Yang Feng performed well, he would leave a deep impression among the group of high IQ people and also among the group of students and talented people in front of their TV. Would he still be worried about talent joining Habao Technology in the future?
This was his stage.
Let his charisma be fully unleashed and become the spotlight, which was something Yang Feng had been doing all these years.
“Of course you can.” Chen Huan was also favorable to it.
For a show that didn’t rely on stars, Yang Feng being there would definitely be a game changer.
The viewers would increase by 10 million with just Yang Feng’s talking.
They were all senior office workers.
There were too many programs like this one in his past life and Jack Ma already acquired his fame, he already said plenty of times the formula of success so people were tired of it and sometimes he would talk too much but he was also turned into a legend by his crazy fans.
This life was different as there weren’t as many great variety shows and Yang Feng didn’t reach the lonely peak like Jack Ma so it was possible for him to cultivate it a few more years.
So Chen Huan made him interested in ‘The Brain’ and then made him want to participate in the show.
It seemed that Chen Huan had succeeded.
“Well, that’s great!” Yang Feng was happy and ready for action.
“But it’s best that President Yang check the recording to feel how it is and if it doesn’t work, you should change how you act.” Chen Huan said, “It’ll be bad if you try too hard.”
“Don’t worry, I know!” Yang Feng responded with a smile while patting his mouth.
Chen Huan suddenly wanted to see ‘The Brain’ sooner after seeing Yang Feng smile so brightly.
It must be very exciting with Yang Feng in there!
