Chapter 199. The antagonist (1)
"What have you been reading since the morning?"
White bear asked Ren as he took a bite out of the steamed bun in his hand. They were currently sitting on a bench in an outdoor set.
They were here to shoot an advertis.e.m.e.nt for a pair of shoes. The theme of the advertis.e.m.e.nt was common. It emphasised on the strong quality of the shoes.
Ren didn't have to do much in this advertis.e.m.e.nt. There were some stunts to do in the advertis.e.m.e.nt but they will be done by the stuntmen.
He wanted to do the stunts himself but the company advised him to not take any risk. If he gets injured, they will lose millions of dollars.
Ren was too valuable or it can be said that his face was too valuable.
"It's a book about music."
Ren answered White bear while flipping the pages of the book. White bear glanced at the cover when he heard that.
The title of the book was 'Harmonics and music'. It was a title that White bear was not able to comprehend.
"What are harmonics?"
"You can consider them the sequence of sounds or the frequency of notes."
White bear was confused after hearing that explanation. As a person with less than basic understanding in music, terms like harmonics and notes were incomprehensible for White bear.
"I don't know how to explain it?"
Ren was also a newbie in musical theory and harmonics. He didn't know how to explain it to White bear.
White bear also didn't give up. He read out a paragraph from the book, trying to understand it.
"1st, 4th, 5th, and 8th are called the Perfect intervals, and 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 7th are called the Major intervals. It's easier to understand if you think of the piano. C to E is a 3rd, C D E makes a major 3rd. Meanwhile, C D E F makes a perfect 4th. Also"
White bear's expression kept getting worse, the more he read the paragraph. In the end, he decided to focus on his steamed bun, rather than the complicated 'Harmonics'.
For him, the half eaten steamed bun in his hand was the best thing in the world, much better than the complicated musical theory.
"Shouldn't you be reading the screenplay of Slayers rather than that book?"
White bear said, swallowing the whole steamed bun.
"I just wanted to take some time off to read this?"
"You already read through the whole screenplay?"
White bear asked and Ren nodded while closing the 'Harmonics and music' book.
"Were you able to pass the audition? No, that's a really silly question. You would obviously be able to pass the audition."
White bear corrected his sentence in the middle. Ren was not the same kid he used to go to auditions with, he was now a full fledged celebrity with no flops in his acting career.
However, Ren shook his head and said.
"No, I don't know if I would be able to pass the audition or not."
"Huh? Why is that?"
"The character of the antagonist is really hard to play."
White bear can see that Ren's eyes were serious and he was not joking. He can not guess how complicated a character can be for Ren to say that he was not sure if he would be able to pass the audition or not.
Ren was someone who has stretched his acting spectrum by playing different kinds of characters since his debut.
From the crazy spy to an alcoholic singer in love, he has played different characters in each of his dramas and movies.
"Why is the character so hard to play?"
Ren thought about that question for a second before answering.
"Dark? How is it dark?"
"Maybe shady and grim will be a better word or it can even be said to be crazy. Too crazy!!"
Ren didn't know how to describe the character at all.
Dark? Grim? Or crazy? He didn't know what would be the right word to describe it or if he could even describe it in one word.
The character Ren was auditioning for was the antagonist of the drama Slayers. It was a completely crazy character who could do anything for his greed which was endless.
The antagonist name was Cao Xu.
During the period where war was nothing uncommon and people were afraid of the supernatural powers hiding in the shadows, Cao Xu was born.
He was the illegitimate child of the Emperor Cao and he was mistreated since birth. Both him and his mother lived in a secluded mansion.
His mother treated him well but she was also brainwashing him, so that he can take the throne but she was not aware that Cao Xu was not a normal child.
He was the incarnation of the devil.
He very well knew that his mother was brainwashing him, that's why he pretended to be brainwashed and went with his mother's plan to take the throne.
Throughout the drama, Cao Xu will try to gain recognition as a prince and plot against the protagonist who was the supporter of the crown prince.
Of course, no one will realize that it was Cao Xu plotting everything except the viewers and even they will not know of it until the middle part of the drama.
Cao Xu may look like a normal and talented prince on the outside but he was inhumane.
To get the power of the blade of shadow, he killed off an entire village. He didn't even spare the children there.
The worst part was that he was not someone whose actions can be guessed by anyone. He will praise a subordinate at one moment but at the next moment, the subordinate's head would be on the ground.
"So, will you give up on this role?"
"No, I won't."
Ren has no intentions of running away from this role. He would feel like a coward if he did that..
"Then, how will you play this role?"
"The character I am going to play is someone full of darkness, so to play him well, I just have to embrace the darkness."
"Embrace the darkness?"
White bear let out a confused voice but Ren didn't answer him. There was a plan forming inside his heart as to how he will play the antagonist.
