I Know Everything - Chapter 52
Chapter 52: Progress.
The small empress was surprised too but she endured after remembering Chen Huan’s words.
The next moment, Chen Huan said, “Now, just look into my eyes.”
Han Dong’er did so.
So they just stared at each other.
Chen Huan’s eyes were clear.
Han Dong’er gaze was the same.
The two pure hearted people just looked at each other like that and attracted the attention of everyone around them.
Zhu Mei subconsciously mentioned her hand toward Ding Lun. He softly nodded to indicate he was already recording.
Even if this scene couldn’t be used, it could be used as good blooper material.
Chen Huan’s face was obviously thicker as he stared at the small empress with an earnest and serious gaze.
But Han Dong’er was a thin faced person and not very sociable. One could describe her as a natural dork.
She started to feel uncomfortable after staring at Ye Xuan for a few minutes.
However, she also knew that it was an experiment and it was for the movie.
Her acting just now was really bad, the little empress knew that much but she couldn’t change it. At least she couldn’t change it by herself.
Since Chen Huan experiment was obviously trying to help her, she must endure it no matter how embarrassing and uncomfortable it was.
But after some time, Han Dong’er’s face naturally broke down and responded after she and Chen Huan kept staring at each other like lovers.
She herself could feel that her face started to turn red and she couldn’t if it was because of embarrassment or irritation. This mood was very awkward.
Then, Chen Huan tightened his grip on her smooth hand, “Dong’er, that’s it! That’s the feeling! You must remember this feeling, this is the emotion you need to show!”
It’s like this?
Han Dong’er was a bit stunned.
A thoughtful expression was revealed by just a slight change on her face.
Then she closed her eyes.
The originally happily surprised Zhu Mei was like a deflating ball as she sighed in resignation after Han Dong’er’s face changed.
But Zhu Mei rejoiced again the next moment.
Because the small empress opened her eyes again and stared at Chen Huan with the previous embarrassed and irritated expression.
Zhu Mei knew that what the two needed the most at this moment was encouragement, “Very good! Dong’er, you’re doing great! You’ll pass this scene if you act just like that!”
Then she turned toward Chen Huan and said, “Chen Huan, can’t you act more naturally cold? How about we have Dong’er give you some pointers? You just taught her, now let her teach you.”
The group of students started to laugh loudly.
Chen Huan had a headache when they spoke of his problems.
He also found that the small empress had a trace of smile in her eyes.
“No need, she’s born with that cold face and I can’t learn it.” Chen Huan let go of Han Dong’er’s arm and folded his arm, “Let me try it again!”
Zhu Mei decided to believe in Chen Huan, “Everyone take a three minutes break and we’ll officially start again after! Help us a few more times! Then the crew will treat you to a meal this afternoon!”
The group of students cheered.
They could act with the small empress and eat a sumptuous meal, their lives were wonderful!
Chen Huan went to sit at his own seat.
He took a deep breath and began to think about Takashi Kashiwabara acting again.
But he couldn’t completely learn from him.
While he was training, he looked once more at the female Fang Shu’s embarrassment.
He looked at the female Fang Shu’s embarrassment and irritation but there was also some barely noticeable quick heartbeat.
The three minutes passed quickly.
The teacher started to call again after Zhu Mei’s order.
Two different voices resounded at this moment.
They looked at where the voices came from.
The eyes of the two people crossed each other.
Amidst the laughter and discussion of the students, Chen Huan’s face was cold but a light also passed over his eyes.
Han Dong’er put her hands on the tables as she looked at Chen Huan with reddened cheeks with a look of annoyance and embarrassment.
They looked at each other for two to three seconds but their message was conveyed. Their respective expressions seemed appropriate this time.
“Good! Very good!”
Zhu Mei’s voice loudly resounded, “This one is done! Chen Huan, Dong’er, you guys finally did it! Everybody worked hard, let us all go for a meal! We’ll continue in the afternoon!”
Chen Huan and Han Dong’er felt a sense of accomplishment after the successful take.
The next scene was the election of the class representative and the two acting was much better that time.
Because of the teasing of the two people with the same name, the other students deliberately pranked them and tried to make them into a couple. Those shallow pranks were also very popular and common in high school.
But the whole class’s teasing deeply hurt and embarrassed the timid female Fang Shu.
Therefore, when the two of them were selected as ‘librarians’, female Fang Shu wept in tears when everybody laughed.
The male Fang Shu didn’t have a reaction while he was ridiculed by everyone but he couldn’t bear it this time as he directly went up to the female Fang Shu and kicked down the male students who were mocking her for crying.
The male Fang Shu didn’t even glance at the female Fang Shu as he glared around at his classmates before leaving the classroom.
The expression of this scene was also in line with their acting at the beginning of the school year. The shy and embarrassed look of the female Fang Shu, the expressionless male Fang Shu, it was a scene filled with pity.
In fact, there was another layer in that scene.
After the female Fang Shu’s dad died and the male Fang Shu left the high school, she went to school only to find out there was a flower plot of flowers placed on male Fang Shu’s table.
Then a female student told her that male Fang Shu transferred out of school.
The female Fang Shu planned to get along with the male Fang Shu this semester but didn’t expect to never see him again. With her fellow students’ prank and the anger she felt inside, she took the flower pot and threw it to the ground.
Then she turned around and left the classroom under everybody’s gaze.
At that moment, she couldn’t tell how she was feeling.
But it was certain that she must have thought of when she and male Fang Shu met the first time when school just started and when male Fang Shu knocked down the students that were mocking her.
Returning to the present.
Chen Huan and Han Dong’er couldn’t be said to be familiar with those situations but they still had some experience.
With various conditions and adjusting their state of mind, they successfully shot the scene after five takes.
Zhu Mei thought it could still be polished for a bit. Maybe the two of them would get better later.
But she also knew that pushing them too far wasn’t good.
This was officially their first day in acting and it was already good for them to be at that level.
Thanks to Han Dong’er being suitable for the role and Chen Huan being the author of ‘Love Letter’ and knowing the role’s mentality and behavior. Otherwise they probably wouldn’t be able to shoot one successful take that day.
They could take it slowly and let them get the feeling of ‘Love Letter’ and it would be enough.
Because the face value of this movie was youthful and pure love, so their performance was crucial!
