I Know Everything - Chapter 552
Chapter 552: Boss Yang second defeat.
Yang Feng had several properties in Lin’an.
He wasn’t someone who liked to hoard real estate so except for his old house from the entrepreneurial area, a large apartment near his company and his big house near West Lake, he had no other properties.
As for how much his three wives shopped, he didn’t care.
Women liked to shop anyway and besides the daily necessities, they loved jewelry, real estate and so on…
But the wives would never live in the other properties and always stayed at the house near the West Lake.
It was a house with ancient style architecture and a garden.
There were also several other lofts outside of the main building.
The second and third wives owned one each and Yang Kaixin also had one where she grew up.
Yang Feng’s expression was a bit ugly when he came back home today.
The first wife went back to her family’s home while the second and third wives were also not there. The maids quickly went to work after Yang Feng asked for some side dishes and a bottle of Moutai.
Yang Feng’s phone rang at that moment.
It came from his most personal phone, the one only family knew.
“Dad! Dad! Did you see Teacher Lu’s game? It’s amazing! Too great!” Yang Kaixin excitedly said, “China has finally produced a basketball player even better than Big Yao, finally! Why do you think Teacher Lu is so good at so many things? How can he do everything?!”
Yang Feng was taken aback.
It didn’t take long for him to realize she was talking about Chen Huan in the NBA.
He didn’t pay attention to that due to how busy he was at work but he did see on the news about Chen Huan’s great game and being ejected.
Seeing how excited his daughter was, Yang Feng laughed and said, “How did you have the time to watch it? Aren’t you busy filming?”
Yang Kaixin became very popular with the role of Ziwei in ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ and at the peak, she was only second to Bu Yiyi.
So when she returned to Huajin Filming School at the beginning of the year, many people wanted to cast her and she finally picked a project she liked after a long period of thinking so she joined the production in March and had been busy since.
“Our director is a fan so gave us a day off today so we could watch the game.” Yang Kaixin said, “Basketball is really great, especially compared to the slow and irritating football, Chen Huan still played great!”
Yang Feng had a frown.
He was wondering why his baby girl was getting more and more in awe of Chen Huan recently.
Chen Huan’s name was often being mentioned, could it be that she fell in love with the kid?
Then he thought deeply.
Yang Kaixin knew that Chen Huan was Lu Xiaofeng as well as Chu Liuxiang.
Then she knew that Chen Huan was proficient in mathematics, music, song writing, script writing, variety shows planning, basketball…
He thought that Chen Huan was such an ‘all-rounder’ and was also ‘The Prettiest Man’, it wasn’t a problem at all for her daughter to view him favorably or even like him!
Yang Feng immediately became wary.
Even if Yang Kaixin was 21 years old now, she was still a little child in Yang Feng’s mind.
“Kaixin, basketball is just a sport, there’s no need to be that excited.” Yang Feng quickly said, “If you’re still serious about your career as an actor, you have to achieve something so you can look back to your life with pride”
“Okay, I know.” Yang Kaixin was smart and noticing that Yang Feng wasn’t willing to dive into the topic, she quickly changed the subject, “Dad, I heard from mom that there is something bothering you recently, I can listen to your worries!”
“Just some problem concerning our development plan, it’s nothing big, just a bit cumbersome.” Yang Feng replied calmly.
Yang Feng felt warm from the concern shown by his daughter and wives.
However, he didn’t want his family to worry about the company so he changed the subject and said a few more words to his daughter before hanging up the phone.
It wasn’t a big deal but Yang Feng felt ashamed.
Didn’t Habao Entertainment make several TV shows and films?
Their first project ‘Youth’ was broadcasted on Zhejiang TV but it was a fiasco in ratings.
It was the same with the online broadcast on Pomelo as 3 million people at most and 1 million at worst.
As the last resort, Zhang Shouzheng made a fake claim of “The peak viewership of ‘Youth’ surpassed 10 million and the average was 5 million.” This stat was questioned and mocked by countless people.
Because all the reviews, comments and discussion were all about how bad ‘Youth’ was.
It was fine.
This was their first project and could be chalked up to being inexperienced.
Then their second project ‘Sky Warriors’ was released, Sang Choi especially hired a well-known specialist to come edit it, everyone said the special effects were good.
Yang Feng even personally came forward to have it broadcasted on Xiangnan TV.
It was one of the best TV stations of the country and they gave face to the second richest man in China so it was broadcasted at 8pm.
Their first day broadcast a little nice with the peak rating at 3.2% and the average rating at 2.1%, better than ‘Youth’.
But they fell off a cliff the next day.
Their peak rating was 1.7% while the average was 0.8%.
It was said that the boss of Xiangnan TV was completely stunned.
Their peak rating the next day dropped to 1.5% with their average also dropping to 0.67%, setting the record for the lowest rating in the past five years for Xiangnan TV.
Yesterday was the fifth day since the release, the peak rating remained at 1.5% but the average dropped to 0.59%.
The most important problem wasn’t even the bad rating but the reviews online were simply cursing them.
“What kind of TV is that!?”
“Science fiction but not really, drama but not really, modern time but not really, are you trying to make the northern specialty, Fried Mashi!?” (The food generally looks like a mess.)
“I’m feeling embarrassed by Lin Weilian, what kind of dogshit acting is that?!”
“I was so horrified that I changed the channel to see ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ to soothe my soul a little.”
“Right! I did the same! I didn’t believe that ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ was that great before but now that I look at that, f̲u̲c̲k̲, it’s god’s work! Sure enough, I can’t see the difference if there’s no comparison!”
With so many people scolding it online, the views on Pomelo could be easily guessed.
At the beginning with the two first episodes that had 3 million viewers, the average number for each episode now were less than 1 million and Pomelo’s employees started to grumble.
If they knew this would happen, it would be better to broadcast American or British TV series, at least they had more than 1 million viewers!
Yang Feng received a call from the Xiangnan TV’s boss.
He told Yang Feng on the phone that he really couldn’t stand the pressure anymore and could only move ‘Sky Warriors’ broadcast to the 11 pm schedule.
Otherwise the advertisers wouldn’t pay them due to the bad ratings and the bonus to the employee would be reduced, which would be a big problem.
Yang Feng had no other choice but to agree to that decision and apologize to the other party.
What else could be done?
He couldn’t even give something good so how could he blame others for not helping?
How many years since Yang Feng had failed like that?
He got angry by just thinking about it!
He didn’t think of Chen Huan.
But after being mentioned by his daughter, he recalled that he said to Chen Huan that ‘Data can’t lie’.
His old face flushed for a bit.
His TV series and film, especially the films, wouldn’t flop again!
Otherwise, he would become everyone’s laughing stock!
Thinking of that, he called the CEO of Habao Entertainment Sang Cai with his mobile phone, “Sang Cai, call up everyone from the production department to come for a meeting!
He had to put the fire under their bottom!
