I Have the Halo of Overbearing President - chapter 38
Zhang Jianian’s judgment about Laughing Culture was correct, as the company’s programs weren’t outstanding.
“I’m the Venomous Tongued King” didn’t even have a title license at the beginning. If said that the program became popular with the power of President Chu alone, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration. The initial manuscript of the program wasn’t spicy or gossipy and the guests weren’t tepid. If it weren’t for President Chu’s enthusiasm, it would be impossible to get such a good result.
However, this kind of thing happened also because of luck. As long as the first episode became popular, the subsequent commercials and advertisements would continue to fly in. The investment of funds was followed by the improvement of the level of the program. President Chu’s performance in the first episode had set the tone for “I am the Venomous Tongued King”. As long as the directors could maintain the standard, they shouldn’t be afraid that there would be no hits later.
If “I’m the Venomous Tongued King” could maintain a good momentum, by the end of the first season, Laughing Culture would basically be able to carry out a round of financing and the valuation would be doubled. Zhang Jianian’s conditions in the Pre-A round were quite harsh and Yinda investment made a steady profit.
President Chu invested boldly and casually and actually achieved good results. Zhang Jianian named this phenomenon as “Chu Xue Investment”.
(m. to spend money in large amounts)
The principle was that regardless of the normal investment process and common sense, all behaviors were only a strange phenomenon. It wasn’t based on Feng Shui (metaphysics), but on President Chu’s mood.
Zhang Jianian: We delve into the market every day and it’s so sad that we can’t beat the boss’s casual investment.
He thought that after the show was broadcast, the matter would be over. He unexpectedly received a call from Laughing Culture CEO Director Han.
“Mr. Zhang, is President Chu free recently?” Director Han on the phone was unusually polite, with a flattering tone in his tone, which made Zhang Jianian suspicious.
As everyone knew, Zhang Jianian had a normal relationship with Director Han. He was strongly opposed to investing in Laughing Culture at the beginning and the two of them were able to pause the tiff on the face. Director Han never called Zhang Jianian “Mr. Zhang”. It must have nothing to do with his diligence, so it must be some trick.
Zhang Jianian said, “Mr Han, didn’t you always contact President Chu directly before. Why did you suddenly think of asking me this time?”
At first, Director Han directly contacted Yinda Investment and later he contacted President Chu privately. Every time he called, Zhang Jianian noted it in his notebook.
Director Han read the deep meaning behind Zhang Jianian’s words and laughed, “Oh, Mr. Zhang, why bother about the past…”
Zhang Jianian didn’t want to bother with him and said politely, “What’s the matter? Why are you always looking for President Chu?”
Director Han said his secret thoughts, “President Chu had performed well on the show. I want to ask if she was interested in coming again…”
“…” Zhang Jianian thought that Director Han was really unkind. He had to rely on his boss. He couldn’t help but remind him, “You may not know that even though President Chu performed very well on the show, Director Chu’s reaction after watching the show wasn’t good.”
Chu Yanyin lost his temper after watching “I’m the Venomous Tongued King”.
Chu Chu blocked his number, so he frantically called Zhang Jianian and asked him to stop Chu Chu from appearing in all variety shows. Chu Yanyin even wanted to take the show off the shelves at one time. If it weren’t for Zhang Jianian help, “I’m the Venomous Tongued King” would have been gone.
As he didn’t want to further intensify the conflict between the father and daughter, Zhang Jianian didn’t tell President Chu about these things, but he really didn’t show a good face to Director Han who wanted to abduct his boss again. Every time something happens, in the end it was Zhang Jianian who bore the anger of the chairman.
Director Han grasped another key point and said shamelessly, “Director Chu has also watched our program? Great, is he interested in coming to our show?”
Zhang Jianian: “…”
Zhang Jianian: You have lost your mind. You really want to feel the coolness of heaven.
Although Zhang Jianian was slightly dissatisfied with Director Han, he still dutifully reported to President Chu, “President Chu, Director Han asked if you have any intentions to appear on the show again?”
Without raising her head, Chu Chu flatly refused, “What is with him? I have blocked him out. Give me the IP plan.”
Director Han harassed Chu Chu all day, hoping that she would come on the show. Chu Chu was upset by his calls and simply blocked him. She even dared to block Chu Yanyin, so who was Director Han?
Zhang Jianian: “…” No wonder Director Han called him.
“This is the information you want.” President Chu had no intention of going on the show. Zhang Jianian relaxed and put the negotiation quotation plan of the novels IP on the table.
Chu Chu flipped through it roughly. She picked up a pen to draw a circle on it and then reached out and pushed the book back to Zhang Jianian, “The content I circled is pretty good and it will be reserved for Chenxing development. It depends on the situation and the price.”
Zhang Jianian was surprised, “Would you not make it yourself?”
The copyright evaluation department of Chenxing Film and Television hadn’t yet made an overall opinion report. Did President Chu want to do the evaluation by herself? There were a lot of contents on the list, so it was very hard to read.
“Yes, I saw it last night.” Chu Chu rubbed her eyes and explained, “Didn’t you say that you are afraid of buying usless things? I’ll check them first.”
President Chu stayed up late to read books the previous night. Zhang Jianian got quite uneasy and had no choice but to persuade her, “You can let us do these things. Why do you have to stay up late and exhaust yourself?”
Chu Chu: “I’m not tired, because I have to make you do more difficult things, so I just read the novels.”
Zhang Jianian: “…”
Zhang Jianian: There is nothing wrong in terms of logic.
He collected the information and checked the next work with President Chu. He was methodical and reasonable, “There will be a regular meeting of the Investment Management Department tomorrow morning. Would you like to attend?”
Chu Chu thought of the investment terminology at the meeting and said directly, “You go in my place.”
Zhang Jianian: “Okay, you got a meeting with Guangjie Entertainment in that afternoon, would you like to attend?”
