ourse of time, following the cast and crew, he ingratiated himself with the staff members and actors, and actresses.
He was gentle, straightforward, and a bit endearingly silly.
He was quite popular.

On the morning of the fourth day, the director asked them to put on makeup for the costume photos.
After completing the makeup photos, he would let them go and then come back the next week, that was, three or four days later.

Since it was set to imitate the production method of Korean dramas, it was naturally impossible for the crew to shoot the entire drama at once.
About two episodes of content would be filmed in a week and broadcast on the weekend after the post-production.
Then, according to the reaction of the audience, they would see if they needed to improve it so as to make the content better.

Just when Lian Qing finished taking the costume photos and was ready to change back, the crew came in again with a video camera.

One of the staff members, holding a paper card in her hand, said with a smile, “Lian Qing, can I have a little interview? I'll ask questions, and then you answer.”

“Yes, sister.” Lian Qing said, and sat down on the chair according to the instructions of the staff, with his hands on his knees, looking at the staff.

The staff cleared her throat, smiled, and asked, “Why did you take the role? Was it because you were previously a monk?”

Lian Qing was a little confused and asked, “Do you want me to tell the truth?”

The staff smiled and said, “Of course.”

Lian Qing: “This role…
was actually taken by my agent.”

Staff: “Cough…
at this time, you should say that because this role is similar to yourself, or that this role is very good.”

Lian Qing looked innocent: “Didn't you say I should tell the truth?”

Staff: “emmm…
OK, then continue to tell the truth.
Next question, this is your first film…”

“It's the second time.” Lian Qing clarified, “As a matter of fact, this is not my first time.” Guest actors are also filming!

The staff laughed and said, “I see.
So are you nervous about filming the second time?”

Lian Qing nodded: “I was nervous at the beginning, but now I'm fine.”

“So how did you get over your nerves?”

“Because of my agent.” Lian Qing smiled as he talked about his agent “She said if I film well, she would take me to have barbecue when I finish filming.”

“So you are not nervous because you can eat barbecue after filming?”

Lian Qing nodded again and again, with a shy smile and bright eyes: “Yes, I just want to work hard and finish shooting as soon as possible.
With this thought, I can't remember being nervous.”

Staff: “…
is that why you stay in the crew whether you have something to do or not when filming?”

“En, I wanted to see if there was anything I could do to help, so as to accelerate everyone's speed and try to finish shooting earlier.
But these days…
I don't seem to be able to do anything except film…” Lian Qing was a bit disappointed when he said this.

Then he cheered up again, “Fortunately, it is over now.
I have made an appointment with my agent.”

The staff had a complicated look and asked after a long time, “Aren't you afraid that your agent will hit you after hearing these words?”

“Not afraid, she's no match for me.” Lian Qing looked serious.

“I suddenly feel a little sorry for your agent…”

Lian Qing hurriedly waved: “I'm joking.
Sister Cheng is very nice and won't hit me.”

“But your expression is very serious…” The staff couldn't help roast.
“At first sight, I knew your words were heartfelt.”

Lian Qing looked at her helplessly.
After a while, a good idea suddenly occurred to him.
He couldn't help leaning forward a little, and said very flatteringly, “Otherwise, let them cut this section and don't let it out, OK?”

The staff member's righteous words: “Not good.”

“Older sister, please! I…
I'll buy you a drink later?” Lian Qing said tentatively.

then I'll tackle a difficult job…” That's strange! The staff thought to themselves that later they must look back! Department! Broadcast! Production!


Show/Hide Note


Seeing the Little Monk's relieved expression, the staff smiled and asked, “So, what do you think of your role now?”

“Thoughts?” Lian Qing shook his head.
“No thoughts.”

Staff: “…” You fool.
Will you be able to do business or not?

“So, what do you think of the other actors in the cast? What do you want to say to them?”

Lian Qing said with an ineffable face, “Everyone is very good.
As for the words…
we usually have finished.”

“No, this time I want you to look at the camera and deliver what you want to say.”

Lian Qing was even more confused.
“I can talk to them directly after I go out…” He could obviously talk to them face to face.
What was the point of speaking to them through the camera if they could not hear him?

Staff: “…
can't you just do something as a token of appreciation?”

To do something as a token of appreciation? Lian Qing thought for a while, but couldn't think of what to say.
He said tentatively, “Jia you?”

Staff: “…”

After the interview, as soon as Lian Qing walked out of the room, he closed the door and heard the crazy laughter of the cameraman coming from inside.

“Ha ha ha ha ha…”

In the burst of laughter, there was also a faint good-natured heckling from the young lady who interviewed him: “Laugh, level off, level off, ah you…”

Lian Qing touched his nose and thought to himself, he should have said the right thing

The author has something to say:

Sister Cheng: I always feel as if I have forgotten something

Little sister interviewing: You forgot to teach your Little Monk how to do business, Hello ah!

Little Monk's unconventional business: confused, innocent, helpless, and pitiful
