I Started As A Novel Villain - Chapter 162
Lin Yufan sat leisurely on the sofa, staring at Ye Fei with his legs upright, and his expression being lazy and indifferent.
His attitude towards Ye Fei was nonchalant.
Then, he spoke with a beaming smile, “Mr. Ye, it’s okay if you want to buy my music. But you should have been informed of the fee in advance?.”
Ye Fei cast a look at Lin Yufan “Oh? Mr. Lin, I’m not sure how much your music costs.”
“One million Yuan, plus 30% of the copyright fee for each channel, or I won’t sell you any of my music.” Lin Yufan’s smile grew bigger and his eyes shone with confidence.
(T/L: 1 million RMB is $149,223)
The price is simply too daring!
A million yuan song is prohibitively costly. Even prominent Chinese composers are recruited for this price, but the most audacious aspect is that the copyright charge for each channel of the following songs is 30%, which is simply too greedy.
Whichever way you looked at it, Ye Fei was the one who was losing the most money!
It seems Lin Yufan wanted to become the lion and slaughter Ye Fei fiercely.
He knew Ye Fei had plenty of money, not to mention Lin Yufan’s faith in the creation of his song, which, according to the contents on his laptop, is a classic among the top!
Lin Yufan gazed at Ye Fei as soon as he finished speaking. He was secretly envious of him. The young man in front of him is both young and wealthy, not to mention extraordinarily attractive.
It was very enviable, especially because he also runs an entertainment firm with several gorgeous female celebrities.
If it were before, he could only look up to Ye Fei.
Ever since Lin Yufan received the mysterious laptop, he felt that his life has been completely changed.
The new him had ambitious goals. He wanted to establish his own entertainment firm and utilize the music, literature, and dramas contained within this enigmatic computer to build an unprecedented entertainment empire.
Let Ye Fei, who sat in front of him, be the one who provides him start-up capital to begin growing his empire.
It makes no difference if he did not agree. Lin Yufan still possesses the mystery computer, and there’s still many methods to acquire money.
Seeing Lin Yufan speak so much bullshit, Ye Fei smiled internally.
Lin Yufan’s personality is consistent with the depiction in the book. His character is bold, fearless, and most importantly, arrogant.
Ye Fei motioned with his palm and remarked, “Money isn’t an issue; the question is, is it a good song?”
His intention in asking this is to watch Lin Yufan perform the song.
Lin Yufan’s eyes lit up as he heard Ye Fei’s comments and realized right away that Ye Fei was a money sheep waiting to be slaughtered.
He then immediately spoke: “Mr. Ye, are you unsure about the type of music you want? I can write anything appealing to your ear and let you feel it firsthand?.”
Lin Yufan was very confident, because he remembered many songs on that mysterious computer. Moreover, he can even compose a song on the spot if Ye Fei asked him to do so.
Ye Fei’s heart pounded a little faster as he heard Lin Yufan’s words. It seemed that Lin Yufan wanted to show his hand to him.
“I want a national style song, ideally connected to China’s traditional culture and art, and that would sound nice in a porcelain instrument,” Ye Fei pretended to be interested.
“A national song? Using a Guzheng?” Lin Yufan inquired, his knowledge of history is astounding, and unexpectedly, he was practicing a national style song whilst playing a guzheng!
Furthermore, the song he recalled is a high-quality masterpiece; if he performs it, he would undoubtedly stun the big money sheep in front of him.
Lin Yufan smiled greedily at the corner of his mouth, he couldn’t wait to see Ye Fei’s dumbfounded expression.
He felt that it was time to show true passionate music!
Lin Yufan rose up after collecting his thoughts, slightly meditative, and purposefully walked in circles before slowly saying, “Mr. Ye, I already have an idea, and I happened to write a melody for it; would you want me to sing it to you?.”
“So fast?” Ye Fei expressed his surprise.
Lin Yufan’s eyes sparkled smugly when he observed Ye Fei’s astonished expression “I write quickly and sing well.”
Lin Yufan discreetly praised himself, and you will be even more shocked when you hear my song.
“Please, go ahead.” Ye Fei said concisely.
Lin Yufan cleared his throat, and after making some noise, he said, “Okay, then I’m ready to sing, Mr. Ye. This song is called, “Blue and White Porcelain”.”
Mhm, so he really is singing “Blue and White Porcelain”.
Ye Fei remained calm. He just asked for this sort of request to make Lin Yufan sing this song, and he really took the bait.
Lin Yufan opened his mouth and sang, “The plain outline highlights the blue and white pen and the sharpness turns lighter. The peony depicted in the bottle is just like your first outfit, and the sandalwood through the window, I know what I’m thinking about, and the pen on the rice paper is half way up now!.”
Lin Yufan’s accent is not particularly pleasant, but barely acceptable.
But the problem is the song.
A song that hits high and low notes basically sums up the difficulty of singing “Blue and White Porcelain.”
The song is not only good in tune, but the lyrics are unique.
Lin Yufan proceeded to sing, and while his vocal talents were not stellar, the melody and words were all outstanding, and it made an impact on people hearing it for the first time.
Lin Yufan performed briefly, then paused, anticipating Ye Fei’s comments and his shocked expression, “Mr. Ye, how was the song?”
While speaking, Lin Yufan went back and sat on the sofa.
It was reasonable for anybody to be surprised when such a classical song was written.
So Ye Fei must be stunned and really shocked!
The song “Blue and White Porcelain” definitely has such nationalist yet romantic charm, Lin Yufan is very confident in it!
But to Lin Yufan’s expectation, Ye Fei was actually indifferent, staring at him coldy.
There were no hints of surprise in his expression, as he muttered, “Lin Yufan?.”
“Yes?.” Lin Yufan responded and vaguely felt that Ye Fei’s expression was a bit wrong.
Although his singing skills are not top-notch, the lyrics and mood of this song are perfect.
The feeling of being a national style is even more bashing, how can it not make Ye Fei shocked?
At this point, Ye Fei quietly rose to his feet, his movements elegant and natural, and he secretly opened the system layout, swiftly consuming 100 million yuan in funds, in order for the skill ‘Singing’ to progress from beginner to intermediate.
Then Ye Fei smiled and stared at Lin Yufan, “Mr. Lin, this “Blue and White Porcelain” is indeed a top-notch song, but is it really your original song?.”
Lin Yufan met Ye Fei’s eyes. Suddenly, he panicked, but forced himself to be calm, and replied angrily, “Mr. Ye, what do you mean by this!? Do you suspect that this song of mine is plagiarized? You can’t be spouting such accusations!.”
“Am I really talking nonsense?” Ye Fei playfully smiled.
