Chapter 317: Well-hidden
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
A few days later.
Luo Chen was the same as before, dragging his exhausted body home.
A musty smell filled his shabby and narrow rental apartment. Even the white paint on the walls was peeling off.
Two weeks had gone by in a blink of an eye. Aside from martial arts training sessions, his manager hadn't arranged anything else for him--no publicity, no assignments, no casting at all. In order to attend his training, he resigned from all his odd jobs.
His mother's medical bills were getting more and more expensive. The over 10,000 yuan he received before wouldn't last much longer and if he didn't have an income...
Luo Chen showered then turned on his television, distracted.
The television screen flashed for a long time before the images appeared.
Some entertainment news was on and a trailer for a show was playing.
Luo Chen was stunned when he saw the trailer on the screen.
It was "Terrifying Dragon"...
In the trailer, the main lead, Ling Shao Zhe, moved gracefully. His face was extremely dashing.
Even though Luo Chen was the secondary lead before, his role was very likable, so he was just as popular as the main lead and shared the limelight with Ling Shao Zhe, even surpassing him slightly.
But today, three years later, Ling Shao Zhe signed a contract with Ye Group's Emperor Sky Entertainment and currently holds the same status as Han Xian Yu as a minor manager of Emperor Sky.
As for him...
Luo Chen looked at the television which had started to flicker once again as a trace of bitterness appeared on his face.
The sorrowful voice of the female host emitted from the television, "Three days ago, the well-known martial arts novelist, Mr. Lin Zong, passed away after living to a ripe age of 83. The literature and entertainment world have expressed their condolences..."
Hearing that statement, Luo Chen was dumbfounded.
Old Mr. Lin Zong actually passed away...
In order to prevent his mind from being muddled by the sneers and ridicule from the people around him, he had been busy training all this while, so he didn't keep up with the news.
The voice from the television went on
As we all know, Lin Zong had many classic martial arts works, of which the most popular was "Terrifying Dragon". Three years ago, the series "Terrifying Dragon" was so popular throughout China that the actors in the series all rose to fame and became very active in the showbiz. Of course, the main lead who played the role of Yun Hai in "Terrifying Dragon" gained popularity overnight and according to recent reports, he has taken up a role in the latest film by director Jiang.
Following that was a lengthy speech introducing Ling Shao Zhe and the script also included an introduction of some other stars from the show.
As for him... all he got was this phrase "he was out of the showbiz right after "Terrifying Dragon" and there's been no news about him ever since..."
At this moment, a familiar yet unfamiliar face appeared on the big screen behind the female host.
On the screen, the teenager looked as perfect as a painting and was sparring in the sky with the main lead, Yun Hai, moving very naturally and fluidly.
That's Lin Luo Chen...
He was still in a daze when all of a sudden, his phone started ringing, interrupting his train of thought.
Luo Chen shook his head and suppressed the haze in his head then picked up the phone. "Hello?"
When he saw the caller ID, Luo Chen was somewhat surprised.
The person calling was an artiste who debuted around the same time as him. Although that artiste didn't start out as well as he did, he managed to progress well eventually and they lost contact.
Why's he calling now all of a sudden?
Luo Chen had just picked up the call when an excited voice came through the receiver immediately, "Luo Chen, you're really great! Good for you! I didn't realize that you could hide so well!"
Luo Chen was totally confused and he furrowed his brows. "What?"
