Chapter 820: Two guys fighting for a girl?
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
A few days later.
In order to get Ye Wanwan out of the way, Chu Hong Guang sent her abroad on a business trip.
At the same time, all sorts of interesting information about the shoot that Gong Xu and Lucy Yang did for Beauty magazine came out. Lucy Yang was obviously an expert in this area - she exploited various angles to produce some pretty ambiguous photos.
Gossip about Gong Xu and Lucy Yang was spreading everywhere and everyone was talking about Gong Xu's new relationship.
Because of Gong Xu's fame, the originally unpopular Lucy Yang appeared in the public sphere all of a sudden.
"Gong Xu's new relationship exposed, the girl is a newbie from the same company", "Gong Xu's new girlfriend's, Lucy Yang's pure and innocent portrait", "Gong Xu's new squeeze - the beautiful Lucy Yang", "Gong Xu fell into the river of love once again, pursuing a beautiful junior relentlessly"...
While reading the headlines of the dishonest gossip online, Gong Xu was hopping mad. "F*ck! Cai Yong Sheng, that dog! His father (I) shall go all out with him! Who's the one pursuing relentlessly, huh? Does he want a face off?!"
Just as he was complaining, Gong Xu read a few other pieces of gossip:
"Luo Chen and Lucy Yang entered a love nest late at night", "Luo Chen and Lucy Yang cast amorous glances at each other", "The nation's first love, Luo Chen, falls for the prettiest beau, Lucy Yang"...
It was the same trick that Gong Xu used. There were a couple of photos in which the truth was mingled with falsehoods which were then labeled with eye-catching titles.
"Ahahaha, Luo Chen, you fool - you fell into the trap as well!" A second ago, Gong Xu was still in a rage, but he started to bask in Luo Chen's misery the next second.
On the sofa, Luo Chen read the gossip about him and Lucy Yang and furrowed his brows.
Gong Xu didn't gloat for long before he began to complain again. "Damn! Gong Xu and Luo Chen had a big fight because they fancy the same girl!? What the h*ll is this? This woman was possessed by an acting ghost or something, huh?!"
In the photo was Gong Xu and Luo Chen fighting while Lucy Yang was anxiously persuading them to stop by the side. It seemed like a melodramatic fight between two guys over a girl.
However, the fact of the matter was that Gong Xu and Luo Chen were just squabbling like usual; it was very normal for them to do that. Luo Chen was always calm and collected in the public eye, but Gong Xu always had the ability to piss him off. Moreover, this fella always found joy in pissing Luo Chen off.
In the photo, it was Lucy Yang who ran over to them, acting like a busybody to persuade them to stop, but in the end, the story got twisted in that way...
Within a few short days, Gong Xu, Luo Chen and Lucy Yang's names were searched countless times online. Lucy Yang was akin to a vampire, leeching like crazy on their fame.
Leeching from Gong Xu alone wasn't enough for her; she had to leech from Luo Chen as well.
With this amount of popularity, Cai Yong Sheng helped arrange various variety shows and interviews for the three of them on his own initiative...
At the moment, Gong Xu and Luo Chen didn't look too happy.
Ever since Luo Chen made his debut, there were zero scandals about him and he had a spotless reputation. After this incident, Lucy Yang's popularity soared, but his reputation was greatly affected.
Even though this incident didn't have much impact on Gong Xu, his reputation and private life had improved recently and all this was the result of Ye Wanwan's efforts - her goal was to improve Gong Xu's image slowly.
He couldn't be an idol forever, and as he grew older, he had to start changing his image.
Right now, Lucy Yang messed things up for him and he was back to square one.
Gong Xu and Luo Chen were already quite popular and definitely didn't need a scandal to keep them in the limelight. On the contrary, having a scandal with a female artist would cause their fans to dislike them. What they needed right now was to accumulate public praise.
At the end of the day, Cai Yong Sheng was just trying to increase the popularity of his own artist, Lucy Yang. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
