I’m Really A Superstar Chapter 1584
In the afternoon.
At the studio.
When the door opened, Zhang Ye came walking in.
Looking at the inside, not a lot of people were at work today. Only four or five people were on duty as it was a Saturday today. The rest of the staff were all on their weekend break.
“What are doing you here?”
“Aren’t you supposed to be on your day off today?”
“Haha, I saw your posts on Moments.”
“Why aren’t you at home accompanying your child?”
“Yeah, we’re here.”
Then Zhang Ye said, “Sister Lan’s matter is settled.”
Tong Fu said in surprise, “So quickly?”
“I think Sister Lan’s box office earnings for her new movie are pretty high,” Zhang Ye said with a laugh.
Little Wang was taken back. “Ah, we didn’t notice at all, then—”
Zhang Zuo said, “Hurry up, call Old Ha and Old Zuo back.”
Little Wang replied, “Understood, I’ll call them immediately!”
Soon after, Ha Qiqi and Zhang Zuo drove back to the office in a hurry.
Zhang Ye instructed them, “Old Ha, you were the one liaising with the popularity rankings agency all this while, right? Let them know that my popularity ranking spot can be reopened.”
Ha Qiqi smiled and said, “Alright! I’ve waited a long time for this!”
Zhang Zuo was also extremely excited. “It’s finally time!”
Zhang Ye said, “Brother Zuo, can I trouble you to make a trip to the media outlets?”
Zhang Zuo obeyed. “Will do, I’ll handle it.”
Zhang Ye clapped his hands and said, “Everyone, let’s buck up. Whether we succeed or not will all depend on this day!”
“Director Zhang will prevail!”
At this moment, the staff of Zhang Ye’s Studio were filled with great fighting spirit!
They also wanted to know how far Director Zhang could go this time!
Very quickly, the news got out.
The official Weibo of the popularity rankings agency announced some news. “We have just received the latest news from Zhang Ye’s Studio. Teacher Zhang has decided to reopen his spot on the popularity rankings (the subject hasn’t had his popularity score updated in three and a half years). Our staff are already working on it, and we’re stepping up our efforts to process the relevant information and data. We will tentatively be reopening Teacher Zhang’s popularity ranking spot at 7 o’clock sharp this evening. For updates of any changes, please follow our Weibo, thank you.”
A tossed stone creates a 1,000 ripples!
The media erupted!
The industry blew up!
The public was in chaos!
“Zhang Ye reopens his popularity ranking?”
“Show business circle to experience a change soon?”
“How much popularity does a former Heavenly King have left?”
“Can Zhang Ye stage a glorious return?”
“What a bombshell!”
“Stormy times for the entertainment circle again!”
At an entertainment company.
“Oh my God!”
“He’s really reopening his popularity ranking?”
“This is big news!”
“I was wondering why my eyes have been twitching for the past few days. I should’ve known that something big was gonna happen!”
“Zhang Ye is coming back and bearing ill will!”
“How will it end up now that he’s reopening his popularity ranking?”
“No one knows for sure!”
At Central TV.
“He’s reopening it?”
“This is too sudden!”
“It’s not exactly sudden. Actually, he had wanted to reopen his rankings earlier.”
“Yeah, it was expected that his ranking would get suspended after the hacking incident from before. But now that he’s been released from jail and even made such a great contribution to the country’s scientific and technological advancement, there’s no reason why they would continue suspending his ranking. So then, why did he reopen it at this time?”
“Could it be because of Xu Meilan?”
“Based on Zhang Ye’s character, that’s really a possibility!”
At a male idols’ gathering.
“There’s really such a thing?”
“This is bad, let’s leave. I have to make a trip back to the studio!”
“Let’s leave together. Hai, I don’t have an appetite anymore.”
“I thought that he didn’t care about the popularity rankings.”
“If his popularity ranking really—uh, surely it won’t happen, right?”
“There’s still Guan Zhaohua holding down the fort at the top.”
“Yeah, Brother Guan is currently at the top of the domestic popularity rankings.”
At Guan Zhaohua’s studio.
“This is bad!”
“Zhang Ye is going to reopen his popularity rankings!”
“Will it affect us?”
“It shouldn’t. He can’t possibly be that popular, right?”
“Yeah, no matter how awesome Zhang Ye is, he returned just a while ago. He hasn’t been involved in the entertainment circle for nearly four years. There’s no reason he can affect us!”
“He’s still very dangerous. That fellow is a legend, after all!”
“Let’s get prepared!”
“Hurry up, contact the media to issue a write-up about us!”
At another Heavenly Queen’s studio.
“Why is he coming out and creating trouble for us at this time?”
“Xu Meilan has just risen to the sixth spot of the S-list, and he’s choosing this time to reopen his popularity ranking? Then aren’t we in great danger? We’re in the seventh spot! That’s the bottom of the S-list!”
“We can’t let Zhang Ye get into the S-list!”
“Get in touch with the media outlets that we’re close to and see if they can dig up some dirt on Zhang Ye and publish it?”
“You’ve got it wrong. No media outlets would dare to publish such news on Zhang Ye at this time.”
“This isn’t a matter of money! Don’t you know who Zhang Ye’s wife is?”
At Yao Jiancai’s house.
“Uncle Zhang is almighty!”
“This kid is finally back!”
“I guess a lot of people in showbiz won’t be able to sit still any longer.”
At Xu Meilan’s studio.
“You can do it, Teacher Zhang!”
“I hope Teacher Zhang wins!”
“Teacher Zhang has given us a lot of help this time in our fight against the male idols and in the popularity rankings. Sister Lan is so fortunate to have a friend like that.”
“Yeah, Teacher Zhang is such a loyal friend.”
“That’s of course. Don’t you know how many years their friendship goes back?”
“I hope that Teacher Zhang score an opening victory!”
At Xiaodong’s house.
The trio of Spring Garden were all here.
“Teacher Zhang is finally moving!”
“This is such great news!”
“He should have reopened his rankings long ago!”
“It’s too critical to have a spot on the popularity rankings!”
“Yeah, by reopening his popularity rankings, it will disrupt the current state of showbiz!”
In the Go world.
“All the best!”
“Lord Zhang’s making a push on the popularity rankings, we oughta give him all our support!”
“Lord Zhang, you can do it!”
In the advertising world.
At Li Xiaoxiao’s house, she was currently chatting with several of her close friends.
“Xiaoxiao, come and watch the news!”
“Is the news real?”
“Zhang Ye is going to go on a rampage again!”
“You’re speaking like he hasn’t been going on a rampage ever since he came back.”
“But it’s different this time. The popularity rankings are the true standard for measurement of everything.”
“I don’t like this Zhang Ye. Back in the advertising war against our Xiaoxiao, he came up with that slogan of ‘Family Spring, a rather sweet thing’ and caused her to get held back by so many years! It angers me just mentioning it!”
“Yeah, our Xiaoxiao was the best person of the advertising and marketing world back then, yet Zhang Ye as a host had to come and mess things up for her. How infuriating!”
“Hur hur, but he’s really capable.”
“Xiaoxiao, why are you speaking up for him!”
“I’m just stating the facts.”
At Xinhua News.
“What’s supposed to come will still come.”
“Are they going for a win this time?”
“Who’s Zhang Ye gonna be stacking up against this time?”
“The male idols, I guess?”
“No, he’s going after all of the domestic celebrities!”
Zhang Ye’s fan club.
In a group chat.
“Teacher Zhang is going to smack faces again!”
“Hahahaha, I’m so looking forward to it!”
“Zhang Ye is the best!!”
“He’s taking action when it’s the right time. Go fuck them up!”
“Come on! My large saber is again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again unable to endure the thirst!”
“I’m in shock!”
“I’m really anticipating it!”
“Sister Lan’s movie has just had an explosive box office opening. She just moved up to sixth place in the S-list and Zhang Ye is reopening his popularity rankings? This is clear as day!”
“So he was waiting for Xu Meilan!”
“I knew it. So that was why he didn’t reopen his popularity rankings earlier!”
“What a loyal person Zhang Ye is!”
“This is what you call a real friend!”
“@ZhangYe Thank you on behalf of Sister Lan!”
“The righteous Lord Zhang!”
“Teacher Zhang is a real man!”
“I am the vice president of Sister Lan’s fan club. On behalf of all her fans, I thank Teacher Zhang. From now on, we will forever be allies and share weal and woe together. @BigSaberBro If there’s anything you need us for in the future, just speak!”
“Yao Jiancai’s fan club is here to show our support!”
“Dong Shanshan’s fan club is here to show our support!”
“Ning Lan’s fan club is here to show our support!”
“Awaiting the final outcome!”
“Right, let’s wait for the results together!”
This day was destined not to be a quiet one.
A single Weibo post from the popularity rankings agency had turned the entire entertainment circle upside down!
Everyone knew that after today, the current state of the Chinese entertainment circle would end up going through a turbulent change!
