It was an entire hour later than the time the production team expected everyone to arrive.Ji Yi wasn't sure what was happening on set at the moment, but she knew they'd probably started shooting with a replacement for the role of Little Nine.
Yet, she figured she would find out for herself what was really going on before she gave up completely. Who knows, the production team may not have found a suitable replacement... Ji Yi stood at the entrance to the set, took a deep breath then walked in.
To her astonishment, the staff responsible for Ji Yi not only didn't blame her for being late, but told her that something happened to the director, so the scene was rescheduled to shoot at one in the afternoon.
Ji Yi, who had been worrying just a second ago, was instantly at ease when she heard the staff member's words.
After Ji Yi had her make up done, she dealt with the wounds on her wrists.
She was afraid that her bandages would be exposed during that afternoon's filming, so she specifically asked the stylist if she could wear a thick jade bracelet to cover it up.
Ji Yi stood in front of the mirror checking her costume up and down to make sure there wasn't a single thing out of place. Then she found an empty room to go over the script.
Ji Yi memorized her lines long ago. After repeating the lines to herself two times over, she saw that it was still early, so she put the script down and shut her eyes to get some rest.
The break room was public. Not long after, other actors came in for a break after getting their makeup done.
The silent room became quite noisy.
Ji Yi sat in the corner where nobody could bother her. Though she didn't open her eyes, she couldn't manage to fall sleep.
The two young women in maid costumes sitting behind Ji Yi whispered to each other.
She was far away, but though they deliberately spoke quietly, Ji Yi could still clearly hear them.
"Did you hear? It was the assistant director's idea to push back this afternoon's filming."
"For real? After being on the production team for over two months now, the assistant director has been the strictest. Why did he drop the ball all of a sudden?"
"Yeah! Director Liang's staff mentioned it over lunch... I only just found out that our assistant director is the director for that TV drama "Encounter".
Ji Yi wasn't initially interested in what the two women talked about earlier; everything went in one ear and out the other. But near the end, her interest was instantly piqued.
Wasn't "Encounter" the popular TV drama from the start of the year? They said "Encounter" was the director's first piece. The filming techniques were unique and the drama gained a lot of hype. It was an overnight sensation!
After Ji Yi woke up from her coma, she paid close attention to this director. She thought he was really talented, and she really wanted the chance to work with him, but this director kept an unusually low profile. He had never been interviewed by the media, so since Ji Yi couldn't get any information on him, she eventually gave up on him. She never imagined that now, they'd actually be on the same set...
