One Can’t Judge by Appearance #58

Hey, first of all, thanks for reading my lousy translation. To be honest, I’d really like it if you guys corrected the mistakes I made. But please speak nicely and politely. My heart is not strong enough to read your too-harsh comments. Have a nice day.

Chapter 58

Originally, the rich and handsome man drove a luxury car to shop for roses and courted under the Imperial TV Building. It has become a hot topic on the Internet. Now someone suddenly jumped out and said that it was actually the hyped method of the female host, which immediately attracted countless people’s attention.

Some people who think they can see through the world hurriedly jumped out and said they have long felt this matter is hype. How can there be so many rich and handsome people in the world, and there are these gems and diamonds on random occasions. Maybe these so-called gems and diamonds just imitate street stalls for ten yuan.

There are also luxury cars and bodyguards who pretend to be quite similar. It costs a lot of money to rent a car, right?

In just a few hours, the topic of the host of “Those Things Around Us” asking someone to pretend to be a rich and handsome man to confess to her became a trending topic on Weibo. Countless netizens said, seeing the innocent face of this host, they didn’t expect to be so scheming. There are so many young female hosts on Imperial TV. Who doesn’t have better hosting skills than her?

Netizen 387: I have a friend who is an industry insider. It is said that the host is actually a University graduate. Her family has some money.

Netizen 439: It’s really not human to lie to the elderly. She doesn’t look very good. How can there be so many tall, rich, and handsome people who look at her blindly?

Netizen 455: The netizen who said that the host is not very good-looking, can you go back and look in the mirror and say this again?

Netizen 462: The person upstairs who spoke for Yan Xi was the sailor she hired, right? Your master gave you a few cents to spare no effort to clear her name. Use such a low-end way to the hype, and play everyone as fools?

There are a lot of quarrels on the Internet. These netizens seem to be crazy. They really hate Yan Xi. Those who don’t know will think that Yan Xi has become a street scammer, cheating the old man’s deposit with Sanwu healthcare products and robbing other people’s children.

“Mr. Xu, you need to be more ruthless and more proud. Okay, that’s the look, take three steps to the left, yes, yes, yes, yes, this is over.”

As soon as the filming stopped, Xu Qiaosheng took off the props and glasses on the bridge of his nose, sat down on the rest chair, and whispered to his assistant: “This is not an overbearing president, this is simply the mentally retarded son of the landlord’s family. The heroine has a brain problem, why would like this man?”

“Cough,” the assistant handed the phone to Xu Qiaosheng, “Young Master Xu, you should check Weibo.”

Swiping Weibo can at least shut your mouth.

Xu Qiaosheng, a young man with internet addiction, has a mobile phone, so he doesn’t bother to complain about the script’s content and honestly checks Weibo.

Ouch, the second cousin asked someone to pretend to be a tall, rich, and handsome man to confess to her for a hype?

No way. If the second cousin’s sister-in-law wants to hype, just ask him to cooperate, but also need someone to play a fake confession of a tall, rich, and handsome man? He opened the video curiously and laughed out loud.

God damn fake tall, rich, and handsome man. This is obviously Brother Yi and Song Chao. If these two people are fake, then he is a poor beggar.

But when did Brother Yi catch up with Da He? Didn’t he secretly watch the one hundred and eight tricks of chasing girls a few days ago? It was rare to see Yuan Yi’s jokes, so Xu Qiaosheng couldn’t wait to quit Weibo and start looking through the contact phone number.

Such an interesting thing. How can it be interesting if you don’t share it with Wang Zi and the others?

“You’ve been in sea city for so long and only returned to the imperial capital for less than half a year. How do you know where to find delicious food?” Yuan Yi ate the dishes on the table. The taste was very delicious, and the ingredients were good, but the location was too remote.

“Don’t underestimate the magical power of us women in terms of food.” Yan Xi put down her chopsticks and sipped freshly squeezed juice, “As long as we are willing, we can become the best detectives.”

“You guys just like…” Yuan Yi wanted to say that women just like to spend their time in these aspects. Still, seeing Yan Xi’s smiling face, he changed his words immediately, “You women are good at this aspect, unlike us men who are careless.”

It’s okay for a man to lose his self-esteem occasionally. What’s more, Yan Xiaoxi is really good at this aspect. Admitting that he is not as good as others is the heart that a man should have.

The two talked and laughed as if they had forgotten what happened in the afternoon at the same time, but their words and deeds became closer.

After dinner, Yuan Yi received a call from Xu Qiaosheng. Only then did he know that something had happened on the Internet.

“What’s the matter?” Yan Xi was holding the bag and about to leave the restaurant, seeing that Yuan Yi’s expression was a little strange, “Is something wrong?”

Could the Yuan family have heard about this and wanted Yuan Yi to break up with her? This seems to be a must-have part of a wealthy TV drama. If the parents don’t stand up and oppose their son’s love, they will be ashamed to say they belong to the wealthy circle.

Yuan Yi hung up the phone, turned his head, and said to Yan Xi dumbfoundingly: “Someone said on the Internet that you spend money to hire people to pretend to be tall, rich, and handsome men to make a confession hype.”

“Ah?” Yan Xi was stunned, and after a while, she said with emotion, “It seems that I have attracted some people’s hatred.” This kind of smearing method is the same as in the entertainment industry. She is a little-known host. Is it worth people spending money on marketing to blackmail her?

When the two left the restaurant, Yuan Yi opened the car door for Yan Xi: “I’ll help you vent your anger.”

Yan Xi looked up at him, “How come?”

“There is nothing more powerful than my own words,” Yuan Yi got into the car from the other side, clicked on Weibo software, and said to Yan Xi, “Who says I’m a fake tall, rich and handsome guy?”

The confession video has already been popular on Weibo. It is easy to search. Yuan Yi finds the one with the most like comments, forwards it, and comments.

Yuan Yi: Yan Xi is my girlfriend, she doesn’t need to hype her confession, and I’m not a fake tall, rich, and handsome guy. Some marketing accounts confuse right and wrong. Please receive a lawyer’s letter later.

When Yuan Yi’s comment appeared in the comment area, everyone thought it was some netizen doing a spoof. Still, after clicking in, they almost knelt down with a thud.

They couldn’t help but think of the mysterious girlfriend incident not long ago. It was so big at the time, and as a result, all major marketing accounts deleted their Weibo posts and apologized publicly. Even actress Zhao Feifei sent two public apology letters, one to Mr. Yuan and one to his mysterious girlfriend for him.

It turns out the 18th-line hosts they ridiculed are the “mysterious girlfriend” who has made countless marketing accounts succumb?

Remembering that a netizen who scolded the “mysterious girlfriend” was sent a lawyer’s letter and even actually sued in court, passersby began to feel upset and began to delete their comments secretly.

The major marketing accounts were even more dumbfounded. They just wanted to make a little money, so why did they provoke this person again? This time it was even worse than last time, and he even directly scolded his girlfriend for spending money on hype, and it was over.

As soon as Yuan Yi’s Weibo post was posted, people who watched the excitement on the Internet almost went crazy with joy. This is a really good show. The person who scolded Yan Xi before was ridiculed by the netizens to the point of disgrace.

Netizen 1: You are so capable. You go find two tall, rich, handsome people to accompany you to hype!

Netizen 2: What kind of small host does Yan Xi need to be to let such a big person help with the hype? In order to shoot material in the wind and rain, she might as well go directly to the national channel.

Netizen 3: I just went to see Yan Xi’s Weibo. She is really a clear stream in the hosting world. In addition to retweeting the program preview, she shows off how beautiful the succulents she bought are. Still, I found each picture is an iron desk, as fleshy as flowing water.

Netizen 4: The female host who doesn’t even show off her body. She doesn’t say a word when she is ridiculed by netizens. She obviously has a wealthy boyfriend but has never shown any public display of affection. She was scolded like this by netizens today, and I haven’t seen her say a word. On the contrary, her boyfriend couldn’t stand it and ran out to do justice for her. Suddenly, I felt that she was so cute, and I was going to become her fan.

Netizen 5: How dirty are some people’s hearts? When they see girls being pursued by outstanding boys, they say that this is hyped. As a loyal audience of “Those Things Around Us,” I think the host girl is super cute, and it’s normal to be pursued by good men. Moreover, her position is very firm, and she doesn’t hesitate when she refuses suitors. Such a good host has also been hacked, so it can only be said that there must be a conspiracy behind it.

Netizen 6: Only I think that the rejected suitor… seems to be Song Chao. Is he from the younger generation of the Song family?

Yan Xi brushed the comments on the Internet and laughed with her stomach in her hands.

“What are you laughing at?”

“Netizens said, the hype must first set a small goal, such as letting two wealthy and noble sons confess in public.” Yan Xi handed the phone to Yuan Yi, “These netizens are so talented.”

“They scolded you before, and you even praised them for their talents.” Yuan Yi was already angry when he saw those remarks on the Internet. He didn’t expect Yan Xi, the evolved party, but she didn’t take it seriously.

In fact, Yan Xi is not only not angry, but she is happy in her heart. If it weren’t for these people, how could Yuan Yi say on his public account that she is his girlfriend? It doesn’t hurt to be scolded by someone. It’s a big deal that the grass is almost in her mouth.

“Most of the netizens are people who are just passersby. How could they sincerely scold me and smear me? It’s obvious that someone spent money to hire a troll.” Yan Xi said indifferently, “Using such low-end means to attack competitors, It is the stupidest and most despicable method.”

For example, before paying someone to smear her, they should at least investigate the identities of Song Chao and Yuan Yi. Dirty material comes out as soon as you open your mouth, and you are not afraid of offending someone you can’t afford.

“However,” Yan Xi suddenly raised her head to look at Yuan Yi, her smiling eyes shining like bright stars. Yuan Yi almost forgot who he was and where he was, “Fortunately, you are here to fight for me. Saving my face.”

Seeing Yuan Yi’s cheeks flush slightly, she only knew that he was looking at her stupidly, and then Yan Xi knew that the grass by the nest was not without feeling for her. She leaned closer again. Her smile was sweeter and more innocent, “Yuan Xiaoer, thank you, meeting you… as a friend is really nice.”

“No, you’re welcome.” Willing to look at the woman who was close at hand, his face was on fire, “Don’t get so close.”

He was afraid that his heartbeat, which was as loud as a drum, would be discovered by Yan Xi. Finally, he had a reason to let outsiders think they were a couple and cut off the possibility of other men getting close to Yan Xi. He didn’t dare to let Yan Xi discover his scheme.

“Oh,” Yan Xi smiled and leaned back, “You said I was your girlfriend, will uncle and aunt blame you?”

Yuan Yi was stunned for a moment before remembering that the “uncles and aunts” in Yan Xi’s mouth referred to his parents. He calmly said, “I don’t need others to make decisions for me.”

“That’s it.” Yan Xi took out a bottle of drink from the small refrigerator, “Come on, open it for me.”

After unscrewing the bottle cap, Yuan Yi realized what Yan Xi’s move meant. He looked at her silently. Would this woman feel uncomfortable if she didn’t make things difficult for him?

“Thank you,” Yan Xi smiled innocently, “The facts tell us the truth. Occasionally leaving two points when you speak is helpful to save your face.”

Yuan Yi:

The car drove into the community where Yan Xi lived, and when Yan Xi got off the car, Yuan Yi called her to stop and said, “Don’t worry about things on the Internet, I will help you find out who is deliberately smearing you.”

“Thank you, golden thigh,” Yan Xi stood outside the car door, bending over to look at Yuan Yi sitting in the car, “You are so nice, why don’t I hang out with you for the rest of my life.”

Yuan Yi looked at her for a few seconds, nodded, and said, “Okay.”

“Really?” Yan Xi tilted her head to look at him and stretched out her little finger toward him, “Pull the hook to seal it!”

“Yan Xiaoxi, are you childish or not? You are in your twenties, and you still play like kindergarten children,” Yuan Yi said with disgust, but stretched out his hand from the car window with a face of ‘I can’t do anything about you.’

“If you hang yourself with a hook, you can’t change it for a hundred years. You have to count on what you say. Whoever repents is a pig.”

Fingertips pressed together, soft and warm, Yuan Yi looked at the smiling woman outside the window as if the whole world had quieted down.

He has never been so sure as at this moment that he has been planted in this woman’s hands for the rest of his life, even though she is inconsistent, even though she is not sexy enough, even though her word is sometimes as sharp as a knife, but who let His eyes, brain, heart, and the whole body can’t be controlled, just to like her.

He can only accept his fate.

“Okay, I won’t change for a hundred years.”

When the night wind blows, Yan Xi reluctantly withdraws her hand, “Then I’ll go in, be careful on the road, and ask the driver’s brother to drive slower.”

“Ah, I almost forgot,” she reached out to take off the diamond necklace around her neck, “I’ll give you this back.”

Yuan Yi didn’t accept it but looked at Yan Xi and said, “What are you doing, I’m a big man, can I still wear this? I don’t have any other women around me, if you don’t wear it, it can only lie in the box with dust.”

“This is too expensive…”

“Are you short of money?” Yuan Yi interrupted Yan Xi.

Yan Xi shook her head.

“Then am I short of money?”

Yan Xi continued to shake her head.

“That’s it,” Yuan Yi closed Yan Xi’s palm, “Since money is just a number to us, it doesn’t matter whether this thing is cheap or expensive? Since you call me golden thighs, why are you afraid that these golden thighs give you something?”

Yan Xi: This rich and dazzling man is very fresh and refined. She can’t refute it.

“It’s fine if you wear it beautifully,” Yuan Yi saw Yan Xi’s hair fluttering gently in the night wind, “It’s cold outside, come in quickly.”

“Alright then,” Yan Xi didn’t insist on returning the necklace to Yuan Yi, “Good night.”

“Good night.” After seeing Yan Xi enter the door, Yuan Yi slowly closed the car window.

When Yan Xi entered the TV building the next morning, she found that her colleagues were more enthusiastic about her. In the elevator, she met a staff member from the advertising department of the main station, and the other party even took the initiative to greet her.

The colleagues in the channel are okay, although they made a few more jokes, the atmosphere is not bad, and no one purposely used words to hurt her. Not long after lunch, Director Jin came to look for her and took her upstairs to meet the head of the main station.

After entering the office, Director Jin introduced her, saying that this was Director Yang of a certain department.

After working in the station for several months, she had no chance to speak with these people except to meet some leaders of the main station. After Yan Xi greeted Director Yang politely, Director Yang kindly asked her to sit down. He began to ask her if she had any difficulties in her work and whether she was used to being on stage or not.

Yan Xi praised all the departments in the station, and the smile on Director Yang’s face became more gentle, “This time I informed you to come because the station is going to train two newcomers. After we discussed with Teacher Shen Xingyan, Teacher Shen felt that Your temperament, image and hosting ability meet her requirements, so we plan to let you learn hosting experience from Teacher Shen. You should know all the programs hosted by Teacher Shen on the station. First, let’s see which program is suitable for your host style. If there is no problem, choose a program to host with Teacher Shen.”

As if afraid of Yan Xi’s misunderstanding, Director Yang explained again: “This matter was settled two days ago. I was going to notify you yesterday afternoon, but unfortunately, it can only be delayed until today.”

Before Yan Xi had time to speak, there was a knock on the office door. She glanced at Director Yang and swallowed back what she was about to say.

  1. I’m amazed how these 2 got together. It wasn’t even a proper asking each other out, and even now they’re posturing to keep each other without coming out and saying they actually like each other

    • Such a breath of fresh air right? That’s why I pick this one, take the courage to translate it even tho I never do this kind of work.

      The romance plot, the FL and ML personality, their journey to their profession, the friendship and family relationship. I love all of it. Sometimes, I learn new things from the character’s perspective.

  2. I must say that was a brilliant move from our girl here. She was so smooth even with the pinky promise.

    Thank you for the TL! I barely slept to catch up lmao
