Chapter 68- You Actually Poached My Lover
Qin Lu’s movie was finished, and Weibo was full of joy. The happiest were his fans, of course. They hadn’t seen a new movie about the male god on the big screen for two full years.
After two years, they are finally about to see him act again, and what could be more gratifying than that?
Even the marketing account and some celebrities followed suit.
During these years of Qin Lu’s fire, the entertainment industry has been updated, and some new faces appeared every one or two years, but almost without exception, some of these new faces will always say that they were Qin Lu’s fans.
Now that Qin Lu has become a hot search because of the film’s finalization, many celebrities have expressed their congratulations. Although some anti-fans say it’s just hype, as long as they don’t intentionally touch porcelain to the hype, fans won’t say anything.
Afterward came the final press conference, which was originally planned to be held in Yunshi, but because of Qin Lu’s words, it was rescheduled to be held at the opening of the film. Fortunately, they didn’t mention it before. Otherwise, it would be a bit troublesome to change the location temporarily.
The media who received that the final conference would be held at the opening expressed surprise. They thought it would be held in Yunshi, and many media had to buy air tickets in a hurry.
“You didn’t care about these things before, but this time you took the initiative to ask to hold a final press conference at the opening of the film. It’s not like you at all.” Cheng Qinghua just finished hanging up a phone call to ask and looked at Qin Lu, “Is there any important reason behind it?”
“It’s very important.” Qin Lu sat on the sofa, and there was a computer on the coffee table. Instead of work materials, there was a video on the computer screen. A young man in the video, Jiang Liucheng, is sweating smoothly. His forehead is drawn across his stained face, and his facial features are still a bit green. However, his eyes looking at the camera are extremely firm and bright. This is a scene from the movie.
Cheng Qinghua stood opposite Qin Lu, so he was not able to see his computer screen, “Why?”
Qin Lu said, “You will know later.”
Cheng Qinghua didn’t say anything and didn’t ask further questions. He just said it casually. Although some people complained to him that the tickets were not easy to buy, the media would never really stop coming.
This is Qin Lu’s first movie after his comeback. It has its own topics and traffic, and fools do want to get a piece of it. The reason why it is difficult to buy air tickets is proof, not because the notification time is too tight. There were a lot of tickets, but they were all bought by fans who received the news in advance.
“By the way, about Jiang Liucheng, he should be able to come after the wrapping press conference starts.”
Qin Lu hummed.
Cheng Qinghua moved a few steps and sat on the sofa diagonally across from him, “Have you introduced him to a blind date recently? Probably not, he is now filming in a new crew, and he is still the leading actor. It is different from before, and he must not have so much time to talk about love.”
Qin Lu raised his eyes and glanced at him. This glance made Cheng Qinghua a little guilty. He knew that his intention was a little more obvious.
“I’m just curious,” he explained.
Qin Lu closed his computer while replying to the message that the young man had just sent him. He said, “He really didn’t have that much time to fall in love in the past month.”
Cheng Qinghua was overjoyed, “Really?”
“Of course it’s true.” No one knows this better than me, the person involved. His love interest has just joined the film crew and is getting in touch with the film crew. They actually don’t meet much.”
Qin Lu spoke again, “Don’t be too happy too early, though. Just because he doesn’t have time doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a love partner.”
The smile on Cheng Qinghua’s face stopped, “What do you mean?”
Qin Lu said calmly, “It means that he already had a love partner a month ago, and the relationship between the two parties is very stable now.”
“They’re bound to have a successful relationship, most certainly. “
“How is it possible?” Cheng Qinghua’s eyes widened.
“Why is it impossible?”
Cheng Qinghua also guessed. He was still thinking that after the film was finished, he would not be so busy in the future, and he would have more time to find someone. He could maybe chase Jiang Liucheng back, but when he heard the bad news, his mood became more and more depressed. “Why didn’t you say so earlier?”
Qin Lu: “Why should I tell you?”
Cheng Qinghua looked at him in surprise, “Just say it. Why are you gnashing your teeth?”
Qin Lu was expressionless, “Is there any?”
Cheng Qinghua nodded very positively, “Yes.”
Of course, Qin Lu would not admit it. As soon as he thought of the young man’s two former blind date partners being introduced by him, he would regret it very much. He would never have introduced him to them if he had known that he would be with the young man. The vinegar is self-brewed, so sour that his teeth could fall out.
Soon, the day of Paradise’s wrap-up press conference will arrive.
Jiang Liucheng, as an important male supporting role, will also attend the press conference. He had already told Director Liu a few days ago.
Director Liu also readily gave him a day off.
“Do you need me to send a car to take you there?” Director Liu asked thoughtfully, but the gleam in his eyes seemed to say that he would send a car with the crew logo so that maybe it would catch the heat.
Compared with the popularity of Paradise after it was finished, many movies, including Mist Killings, are beyond their reach. However, Director Liu and his web dramas are not well-known. Spending money on marketing in Paradise is not necessary. Even if the crew doesn’t speak up, many media and marketing accounts want to take advantage of this wave of enthusiasm.
Director Liu is really envious of the popularity of Paradise. He would want to claw a little bit of its popularity if he can. No, he even sent a congratulatory Weibo on his account this morning.
Jiang Liucheng really wanted to fulfill him, but someone had already come to pick him up, “No, a car will pick me up, director. Just wait for me to come back.”
“That’s okay too, I guess.” The word disappointment was directly written on Director Liu’s face.
The press conference was in the afternoon. So in the morning, a low-key black car came to pick up Jiang Liucheng.
However, the black car did not take him directly to the final press conference. After getting out of the car, he found they were in the studio behind the press conference.
“Although you are not the leading actor, you need to do some styling before attending the press conference.” Zhang Ning explained to him, “Brother Qin is also inside. He is already waiting for you.”
Jiang Liucheng followed Zhang Ning in. Inside was a photography studio with a large space. Upon walking inside, he immediately saw a cloakroom.
A few people walked to the door, and the voice from inside came out.
“That’s it.” It was Qin Lu’s voice.
Zhang Ning pushed open the half-closed door.
Jiang Liucheng looked inside and saw a familiar figure with his back to the door. The man’s height was very conspicuous in the entertainment industry. His shoulders were wide and his waist was narrow. His slender proportions were perfectly set off by the exquisite high-end suit.
Upon hearing the sound of the door, Qin Lu immediately turned his head. The moment he saw the young man, his sharp facial features softened instantly, and even his eyes seemed to have stars flashing across them.
“You’ve finally arrived.” Qin Lu said with a smile.
“Look, Brother Qin looks good in this body suit.”
Jiang Liucheng walked up to him. He looked him up and down and then nodded seriously, “It’s very beautiful.”

The two assistants looked at the makeup artist and stylist who didn’t know anything, and they were very envious. They envied that they didn’t know anything. As the second person who knew about the relationship between the two, sometimes they really wished they didn’t know. So that they wouldn’t always be confused and get fed with dog food.
“Come and sit here.” Qin Lu insisted.
He pulled the chair he had just sat on. There was still some heat left in the chair, and Jiang Liucheng only felt warm after sitting down.
The suit he wore at the press conference today is the latest model of this season sponsored by Roland Norte. It is not yet on the market. This suit is tailor-made for him by the luxury brand. It shows that Roland Norte attaches great importance to him as their spokesperson.
An hour later, Jiang Liucheng’s new look was released.
The skin of the young man in the mirror was already fair, but this white suit made his skin look even more porcelain white. When he sat there motionless without speaking, no one would suspect that he is a human. He looks like an extremely delicate ceramic baby.
“Perfect.” The stylists and makeup artists are delighted with their masterpieces.
“You should go out first.” Qin Lu stared at the young man in the mirror and said a few instructions to the assistants in the room.
After a while, the stylist and makeup artist were dragged out by two assistants one by one, and they closed the door behind them.
As soon as that was dealt with, Qin Lu hugged Jiang Liucheng from behind and lightly touched his ear with his thin lips. His ear became bloodshot in color at speed visible to the naked eye, “I haven’t seen you for a week, but I don’t even want to meet you again here because you look so good-looking. Other people would see you and eventually admire you.”
This was the first time that Jiang Liucheng had such close contact with other men. In the past, including his blind dates with girls, he was always polite and would avoid physical touch.
He has always felt that there should not be too close physical contact before a confirmed relationship or marriage, but when Qin Lu did this, he didn’t feel disgusted at all.
“There may be no way to do this. We will go to the final press conference later.”
Seeing his troubled face, Qin Lu chuckled softly, “Well, there’s still an hour left for the press conference, so we don’t need to hurry over.”
At this time, at the press conference where there was no need to worry, Cheng Qinghua kept asking the staff if Qin Lu had come already. After several replies that he hadn’t come, he finally couldn’t help it.
Although it was true that the press conference starts at four o’clock in the afternoon, as the leading actor, Qin Lu should have arrived early, but no one has shown up until now.
Cheng Qinghua decided to find Qin Lu in person because the distance between them was not far away. He didn’t bother to call and simply searched for him in person.
Only a few staff members came in, and out of the photography building, so he went straight to the second floor and saw no other people in the long corridor.
He didn’t care and soon found the cloakroom where Qin Lu was.
Just as he was about to knock on the door and enter, he heard Qin Lu and Jiang Liucheng’s voices inside.
“How about we go on a trip after you finish filming this web drama?”
“Okay, I’ve thought about it.”
“What were you thinking?”
“When I finish filming this online drama, I don’t plan to be as busy as I am now. I shall have less commercials and scripts. I heard from Brother Zhou that you were like this before, and you didn’t take on too many projects anymore after you became popular. You will only make one or two movies a year.”
“I was also very hardworking at the beginning. I would take on a lot of movies a year. After I stabilized myself in the entertainment industry, I didn’t accept a lot of projects anymore. You are just getting popular now. Don’t you want to take more dramas to consolidate your reputation?”
“No, as long as I can land a job every year, I am already fine with it. I’m not a workaholic.”
The more Cheng Qinghua listened, the more he felt wronged. He couldn’t understand what the two of them were saying.
At this moment, Li Lei’s voice came from behind.
“Director Cheng Qinghua”
This sound was also heard by the two people inside.
Cheng Qinghua opened the door, and the picture that welcomed him inside was not what he had imagined. Jiang Liucheng was sitting on a chair while Qin Lu was half-leaning on the chair’s armrest in an intimate but not overly intimate posture.
If they were playing, the two of them looked like they were flirting at the same time.
An idea appeared in his mind, and Cheng Qinghua only felt that breathing became difficult.
“Qin Lu, you- you poached my lover!”
