I Have the Halo of Overbearing President - chapter 84
Chen Yifan wanted to devote himself fully to music. Of course, his courage was commendable. But their positions were different and the issues were naturally different. Zhang Jianian knew that at Chen Yifan’s age, he had some young and energetic ideals. Even if he hit his head, he would have to make a breakthrough. But from the company’s point of view, the rate of return that an artist could bring was more important.
Chenxing Film and Television also had to survive on profit and couldn’t just realize everyone’s dream.
Zhang Jianian thought for a while and asked, “If you really want to devote yourself to music, how would you plan your future?”
Chen Yifan froze for a moment and subconsciously said, “I will train well and strive to give a better stage performance…”
Zhang Jianian said calmly, “What if you have no chance to be on the stage? As far as I know, there are few music programs suitable for you in China. Your singing level isn’t as good as a professional singer. The only good thing is that you have both singing and dancing skills. The stage of trainees basically means nothing.”
The trainee system abroad was more mature and had a complete corresponding industrial chain. At present, apart from embezzling the title of “trainee”, they couldn’t keep up with them.
Chen Yifan said, “I will work harder in music and become a professional singer soon…”
Zhang Jianian shook his head and said cruelly, “When you negotiate with someone, it’s useless to talk about hard work. What the person wants to know is how will you work hard and when will you achieve your goals.”
“What is your current level? What training methods can be used to improve your competitiveness? How will you ensure your exposure? What is the goal of progress for each stage? Can you use music to maintain your life?” Zhang Jianian, like an accurate robot, kept asking questions .
Chen Yifan was at a loss. He looked at Xia Xiaoxiao nervously for help.
“If you haven’t thought about these things yet, I don’t suggest giving up acting too soon,” Zhang Jianian summed up with a wavering look on his face.
When Xia Xiaoxiao heard them, she whispered with disapproval clear on her face, “Sir…”
Zhang Jianian thought she was going to help Chen Yifan speak, but she lowered her voice and seriously reminded him, “President Chu is asleep. Let’s go out and talk.”
Zhang Jianian: “…”
He turned his head. The boss, who was leaning back in her chair, fell into a peaceful sleep. She leaned against the back of the chair, tilted her head to one side and made a symmetrical breathing sound, as if sleeping soundly, unaware of their conversations.
Zhang Jianian: You pulled me out of the house to sleep?
Although Zhang Jianian was slanderous, he did his best to check the temperature of the air conditioner and got a spare blanket in the office to cover her body.
He looked at Chen Yifan and said, “Let’s go out and talk.”
Chen Yifan didn’t expect that his interview journey would be so bumpy and eventually the conversation partner changed.
The three of them got outside the office. Xia Xiaoxiao watched Mr. Zhang try to advise the child.
Zhang Jianian said slowly and logically, “I understand your dreams, but the more important thing is that I want to see your efforts and achievements. If you only feel good at this aspect temporarily and want to avoid other difficulties, I don’t recommend you to be a singer.”
Chen Yifan murmured, “But this is my dream. I will work hard to devote myself…”
“Some people are born to chase their dreams, but some people need to be qualified to chase their dreams first.” Zhang Jianian cruelly pointed out, “It’s a pity that you are the latter now.”
Not every bird was born with wings that could fight the sky, at least Chen Yifan was still fledgling.
Chen Yifan was still young and frivolous. He was a little bit unconvinced and tried to argue, “I have achieved some results and attracted many fans…”
“Without the show you appeared on, can you guarantee that you will get the current results? If any other trainees appeared in “The Dreamy Voice”, do you guarantee that you will be better than them?” Zhang Jianian said calmly, “In fact, you should know, there are many people who envy you.”
Chen Yifan was speechless and lost his confidence. Had it not been for President Chu, he might still be unknown in the practice room. What Mr. Zhang had said was not wrong.
“Perhaps you think I’m speaking for the company, binding your dreams with opportunity and morality, but many people are not born free.” Zhang Jianian lowered his eyes. He seemed to recall the past with a profound meaning, “The gifts that fate gives are all whose price is clearly marked. You will inevitably have to pay for whatever you have ever obtained.”
Since Chen Yifan got the resources ahead of others, of course he had to make concessions. In Zhang Jianian’s view, the million owed money was more like a joke. Outsiders were even willing to post millions to get the packaging and marketing of Chenxing Film and Television. How could opportunities and resources be quantified with money?
What Chen Yifan owed was a debt of favor, and favors and opportunities were the most difficult to repay. Zhang Jianian had long understood it.
Chen Yifan didn’t expect Mr. Zhang to be so frank. He seemed to understand, looked at his eyes caught in the dark and finally hesitated, “…Do you now have the qualifications to chase your dreams?”
Zhang Jianian’s gaze was like a deep pool. He was silent for a moment and said calmly, “No.”
He owed far more debts than Chen Yifan.
Chen Yifan’s lips moved, but he didn’t know what to say.
Zhang Jianian calmly said, “Of course, this is just my personal opinion. You can wait until tomorrow to discuss with President Chu. But I hope you will have the definite answer in your mind when you talk. Don’t be like now…”
Chen Yifan: “…Okay.”
It felt that Mr. Zhang was saying, “Don’t waste your boss’ time if you don’t know what to say.”
Xia Xiaoxiao witnessed the whole conversation.
Chen Yifan relaxed a little.
She expressed relief and said, “Chief assistant, then I will go to wake up CEO Chu and then call a car?”
It was too late and there was no other work for the time being in the company. It would be better to send President Chu back to rest.
