After “Black and White” was released in Hong Kong, its reputation was particularly good. The box office exceeded 18 million in the first week of its release, and it directly became the champion of this week’s box office chart. In the second week, the box office rose even more rapidly, directly exceeding 25 million. At this time, the Hong Kong Golden Crow Award also announced the shortlist for this year’s awards. The crew of “Black and White” had been shortlisted for a series of heavyweight awards including Best Director, Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay, etc. It had become the biggest dark horse of this year’s Golden Crow Awards.

In this kind of situation, all the crew members were completely pumped up. Director Xu Musen and members of the production team began to look forward to the box office release of “Black and White” in the mainland. According to conservative estimates, it could break the 200 million yuan mark at least.
Motivated by the smell of money, the entire crew was thrown into a busy state, going all out to make up for the mainland version of “Black and White”. In order to ensure that the plot was exciting enough, the screenwriting team of “Black and White” once again approached Tao Mu, the producer of the mainland version of “Black and White”. Taling initiative to ask to discuss the script more with his screenwriting team and continue to polish it some more, in order to match the production style of the Hong Kong version of “Black and White”.
Because of the memories of his previous life, he was worried that the Hong Kong production team would not care about the remake version, so he found the screenwriting team of “The Great Wall of Flesh and Blood” to adapt the script of the mainland version of “Black and White”. However, because of the different production styles, the reshoots of the mainland version were completely different from the Hong Kong version in terms of lines and camera performance. Even though Tao Mu had tried his best to make up for it with the cooperation of the Hong Kong production team, there were still some imperfections that could be seen. In particular, the part where Gu Yuzhang participated in the filming. Using a vivid metaphor, it was like a mainland soldier had suddenly appeared in the Hong Kong police team, so the out of place feeling could not be more obvious.
But this was also not something they could do anything about. First of all, Gu Yuzhang was a mainland actor, and from Yan Film Academy. Although he was only a freshman this year, his performance style had been influenced by the mainland, and was slightly in the direction of stage play acting. Secondly, before entering the crew, Gu Yuzhang had been receiving training in the army. Even after entering the crew, in order to ensure that his training progress was not left behind, Gu Yuzhang was also actively exercising after filming. Therefore, in all of his gestures and posture, there was a kind of soldier’s vigor and resoluteness, uprightness and justice. This kind of aura was not the same as that of the Hong Kong police.
In order to make Gu Yuzhang’s performance closer to the Hong Kong police, Tao Mu also threw Gu Yuzhang into the Hong Kong Police Academy for a week. He even introduced Gu Yuzhang to Jiang Jingwen and several other police officers at a gathering of friends. Allowing Gu Yuzhang to closely observe the words and gestures of the Hong Kong police, and imitate them.
It had to be said that although Gu Yuzhang’s emotional intelligence was a little low, there was definitely nothing negative to be said about his acting talent. In just one week, Gu Yuzhang’s Hong Kong police officer image managed to be 70 to 80 percent alike. The last twenty percent belonged to his innate behavior style accumulated from the environment, and the different aura he developed after training in the mainland troops. But this difference was a perfect complement to Yan Yu’s characteristic of possessing a black-and-white view, which was already very out of place.
Tao Mu’s production level once again conquered the Hong Kong production team. This was also the reason why the screenwriting team of “Black and White” was able to put aside their prejudice and correct their attitude, and offered to polish the script.
With the full support of the screenwriting team, the script of the mainland remake of “Black and White” did its best to be close to the production level of the Hong Kong version in detail. Although the shooting schedule was delayed by half a month compared to the original plan. But the finished film was really satisfying indeed. The rest was left to post editing. Director Xu personally did the editing and took the post-production team of the “Black and White” crew with him into closed door seclusion. The bigwigs who once again ended filming were also unable to rest, and instead jumped head first into the Golden Crow Award PR.
Despite shooting a movie for the first time, yet able to be shortlisted for the Golden Crow Award for Best Newcomer and Best Supporting Actor. There was no doubt that Tao Mu himself was also a dark horse among the finalists of this year’s Golden Crow Award. At the same time, he was also the most popular Best Newcomer Award winner in the eyes of public, fans and the media——because the nominees for the Best Supporting Actor award were all famous celebrities in Hong Kong. Among them, two of the nominees were even on par with A-list big names such as Zhou Yanqing, Wang Jinsheng and Luo Daming. Therefore, the public was not optimistic that Tao Mu could win the best supporting actor award. It was not that Tao Mu’s acting skills were not good, it was just that in terms of his qualifications and contacts in the circle, everyone felt that Tao Mu was relatively lacking. Coupled with the tacit xenophobia of the Hong Kong film industry, it was estimated that there were many people in the Golden Crow Awards jury who did not want Tao Mu, a newbie who had just debuted, to win such an important award as Best Supporting Actor.
But other than that, everyone felt that Tao Mu would definitely win the Best Newcomer Award. After all, among the five nominees for the Best Newcomer Award, only Tao Mu was nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Also, only Tao Mu’s acting skills could beat the other four finalists. This was already a fact for all to see. Therefore, many people were speculating that Tao Mu would definitely do his best to PR the Best Newcomer Award. And the Golden Crow Award jury was definitely willing to hand over this kind of insignificant award to encourage newcomers from afar. Create a fair and equitable image for the Golden Crow Award.
This kind of conclusive public opinion spread to the ears of the other four nominees, and naturally they were sour, unconvinced yet unable to refute. The other three nominees were well aware of the gap between themselves and Tao Mu——in terms of background capital and acting skills, they could not compare at all. In addition to being sour, they could only accept their fate. They even pondered on getting to know Tao Mu and striking up friendly relations at the Golden Crow Awards ceremony, and in the future, if there were good resources, they could also benefit.
Only Shen Yu, who had always seen himself as an opponent, could not accept this kind of evaluation. However, he knew about his own affairs, no matter how much Shen Yu secretly thought in his heart that he was not inferior to Tao Mu, there was no way for their performances in the movie to fool people. Tao Mu and Shen Yu——to be precise, in all the scenes between Zhou Yuanting and Yan Yu, Tao Mu’s acting skills could steamroll him. Especially in the explosive police station scene, Tao Mu’s wonderful acting skills and powerful aura directly overwhelmed Shen Yu, who was also in the camera frame. So much so that after the film was released, all professional film critics and unprofessional fans who had watched the film raved about Tao Mu’s acting skills. Many people even said that they didn’t even notice Shen Yu at all. Simply a background board from start to finish. His character’s image was obviously so good, but the acting was not as good as the little gang leader played by Du Ze.
Many fans expressed frankly that the only scene where they had a deep impression on Yan Yu was probably the last ten minutes of the film’s port shootout. When Yan Yu confronted Zhou Yuanting with a gun, the little detail in which his finger was not on the trigger. As well as the scene where Zhou Yuanting blocked the gunshot and died.
Well-informed people in the industry knew that the performance of these two scenes was actually based on Tao Mu’s suggestion. Shen Yu’s fears at the time of filming really came true——everyone credited Tao Mu for his outstanding performance.
What’s more was that there were still many paparazzi in Hong Kong who had bad intentions. Because “Black and White” was still in theaters, all actors have to cooperate with the crew to participate in promotional activities. Therefore, when being interviewed, many entertainment reporters would take the initiative to ask Shen Yu, what do you think of the choice of another actor for the role of Yan Yu for the mainland remake of “Black and White”? They even mentioned the old grievances between Gu Yuzhang and Shen Yu out of malocious amusement, and asked Shen Yu directly who he thought had better acting skills, Gu Yuzhang or himself? Who was more competent for the role of Yan Yu?
They were all movie-related questions, and it was impossible for Shen Yu to use the official statement of “not answering questions unrelated to the movie” as a shield. But such tough questions were not easy to answer. Especially at the critical moment when Shen Yu was preparing to compete for the Golden Crow Award for Best Newcomer Award——
You think your performance was good and you want to win an award, but you ended up being replaced by someone else to play your role. What’s even more embarrassing was that the one who replaced Shen Yu with someone else happened to be Tao Mu, the producer. Tao Mu’s acting skills and production level were already recognized as first-class in the industry.
This situation was very unfavorable for Shen Yu’s PR of the Best Newcomer Award. Even Shen Yu’s public relations team said that if Tao Mu himself didn’t break out any negative news before the awards ceremony, they were afraid that they wouldn’t be able to PR the Best Newcomer Award for Shen Yu——after all, no matter how big and influential the Lin family’s influence in Hong Kong was, the Golden Crow Award still had some dignity. With Tao Mu as a shining example in front, and the aggressiveness of the media and public opinion, it was impossible for them to PR the Best Newcomer Award to Shen Yu.
Tao Mu, Tao Mu, Tao Mu again!
Shen Yu didn’t understand. Why couldn’t he get around the obstacle named Tao Mu in every step he took? This person had simply become a stumbling block in his career. So long as Tao Mu was around, he would not be able to do anything in his life.
In front of fame and fortune, Shen Yu, who had long held a grudge against Tao Mu, became more and more unable to bear it. Cocidentally, at this time, the mainland media broke the news again that “Shen Yu’s biological mother lied, someone broke the news that Shen Yu’s biological mother abandoned the baby in a rental house in Beijing.”
——The single mother took the newborn child, abandoned the child in the rental house and left by herself, and this incident happened in Beijing. Did this experience look familiar? The group of netizens and fans who often eat melons on the Internet immediately connected this to that a man who could cause a bloody storm in the entertainment industry. Then they connected this to the conflict between that man and the Shen family, specifically with the siblings Shen Yan and Shen Yu…..F**k, this had more twists and turns, ups and downs than the plot of a dog-blood TV series! ! !
In addition to being shocked, public opinion instantly boiled over. Shen Yu’s biological mother, who originally appeared with the image of a motherly white lotus flower and won the favor of netizens, was instantly labeled as a vicious white lotus b*tch. Some netizens even started conspiracy theories, suspecting that Shen Yu’s biological mother had seen Shen Yan secretly switching the children, so that was why she left the hospital overnight, and even abandoned the child thousands of miles away in a small rental house in Beijing in order to kill the baby and eliminate the evidence.
One must know that the child was born less than two months ago, and such a small child was forced to travel thousands of miles away and then became abandoned in a rental house for several days. That was not just the crime of abandonment, it was simply intentional homicide.
Letting her own child replace the second son of the Shen family to enjoy a rich life, and then abandon the real second son of the Shen family in Beijing, thousands of miles away. This simply cut off the possibility of the child recognizing his biological parents. Even if the Shen family found out the truth, if it weren’t for the development of the Internet more than ten years later and the information being so convenient and fast spreading, it was very likely that the Shen family would never be able to find the real second son of the Shen family.
In an instant, the public opinion reversed, and Shen Yu’s biological mother immediately became a vicious woman who was cursed at by everyone. Shen Yu’s biological mother never thought that things would turn out like this. Of course she refused to admit that she had such vicious thoughts.
“I’m not lying. I really didn’t know about the children being switched. If it’s like what you said, I intentionally abandoned the child. Why go to the effort of taking the child all the way to Beijing with me to work, and then took care of him for more than a month?” Shen Yu’s biological mother was less than twenty years old back then, but she gave birth to a child out of wedlock. In that conservative era, one could imagine how stressful a single mother had it.
Shen Yu’s biological mother really wanted to raise her child well. It was just that she didn’t think about how hard it would be for a single mother to bring up a child. Money couldn’t even make up for this kind of difficulty. So in the end, Shen Yu’s biological mother regretted it. She left the child in the rental house and walked away. But she had no intention of putting her child to death.
It was just that Shen Yu’s mother also understood that if she admitted to her abandonment of her child, putting aside whether her current husband and son would think that she was cold-blooded and not responsible, she herself couldn’t bear the crime of abandonment. And if the Shen family knew that she deliberately left the child in the rental house to survive or die…..She was also afraid that the Shen family would take their anger out on her and Shen Yu for this.
Shen Yu’s biological mother was a regular full-time wife. As a mother and wife, Shen Yu’s biological mother’s usual everyday life was taking care of her parents-in-law, raising her children, and managing housework. In her own words, she rarely went online at all. So she didn’t know about the various hot search headlines on the Internet. Not to mention Tao Mu’s birth experience.
In her opinion, the child who was abandoned in the rental house must have died. Although she was very sorry and felt heartache, so many years had passed after all, how could she ruin her current life for an abandoned baby from back then? Since the child was gone, what was the difference between intentional abandonment and premature death?
The world sought advantages and avoided disadvantages, and Shen Yu’s biological mother felt that she just wanted to maintain her current stable family and life. The events of nineteen years ago were a stain on her life. She didn’t want to recall it, but she had to recall it under the coercion of the Shen family. So in order to protect herself, she had concealed some facts, wasn’t this okay?
How could she have thought that things would be so coincidental, there happened to be a bloody storm raising man in the entertainment circle, and his birth experience was an orphan who was abandoned in a rental house by his biological mother when he was just a baby?
Don’t even mention Shen Yu’s biological mother, even everyone in the Shen family who was in the center of the whirlpool was dumbfounded and couldn’t believe it. Mrs. Shen, who had thought that her youngest son died tragically, couldn’t even wait to book a plane ticket and wanted nothing more than to fly to Hong Kong to recognize her son. Even the father and son pair of the Shen family, who had always been calm and basically didn’t take looking for the missing child seriously, were moved and prepared to follow Mrs. Shen to Hong Kong.
Shen Yan suddenly felt like being struck by a thunderbolt. She hadn’t forgotten how she offended Tao Mu in the first place. And with Tao Mu’s vengeful character, if he really became the second son of the Shen family, would he take revenge on her?
No,that was not right. If Tao Mu was really the second son of the Shen family, then she, Shen Yan, was Tao Mu’s sister. At that time, she would be the biological sister of the CEO of FlyNews.com and BulletScreen.com? Could Tao Mu still dare to take revenge on his own sister without caring about their blood relation?
Thinking of this, Shen Yan not only was not afraid, but instead became confident. She even felt that Tao Mu was indeed a man of the Shen family, and it was because of the blood of the Shen family that he was so capable. Much better than that fake, Shen Yu.
——No, that was not completely accurate. If Tao Mu was really the second son of the Shen family who was abandoned back then. Then Tao Mu should be called Shen Yu. The child of the Shen family who was endowed with all the beauty of the world. Thinking of Tao Mu’s disgust for Shen Yu, and Shen Yu’s obsession with the name, Shen Yan became more and more gloating. She even began to ponder that after recognizing each other, she would suggest that the family return the name back to Tao Mu!
Disgust him to death!
Tao Mu and Shen Yu, who were far away in Hong Kong, certainly didn’t know that Shen Yan had such a disgusting plan that could kill two birds with one stone. Although he didn’t want his birth experience to be exposed, today’s Tao Mu was not the Tao Mu who let the Shen family bully him in his previous life. Even if the Shen family really came over, Tao Mu would not admit it. Even if the Shen family wanted to make designs on him, Tao Mu was sure that he would not suffer any losses. One must know that his household registration had long been moved onto the household registration book of Liu Yao and Meng Qi’s family. He had legally recognized family members, had two fathers, a grandfather, and Li Xiaoheng, and he had long passed the age of 18 when he still legally required a guardian. He was no longer the Tao Mu who desperately needed family recognition.
He was doing very well now. The Shen family was no longer needed.
In his previous life, he was not the real second young master Shen, and there was also no need to be crowned with that status in this life. He had no affinity with the Shen family. So it was best that everyone minded their own business. And with Tao Mu’s understanding of the Shen family, if he really didn’t want to go back to the Shen family, he only needed to start from the interests and let the father and son of the Shen family clearly recognize that his existence would definitely not bring any benefits to the Shen family, and may even damage the Shen family’s interests. For their own interests, for example, if the Shen Group might be swallowed up by FlyNews.com or Xiaoheng Capital, then that father and son pair would never let him return to the Shen family. They would even treat him like a snake or a scorpion.
Tao Mu’s plan was very good, but what Tao Mu didn’t expect was that just when he was preparing for the worst, things turned upside down again——
“No! It’s impossible! I don’t believe it!” After the news spread that Tao Mu was probably the second son of the Shen family, Shen Yu was the one who couldn’t believe this fact the most. He never thought that Tao Mu would be the missing second son of the Shen family. Impossible, how was it possible!
Shen Yu felt as if a basin of ice water was poured over his head, so cold that it had Shen Yu trembling all over.
“What about the test report? The DNA identification that I asked you to do after stealing Tao Mu’s hair should have come out already, right?”
In the blink of an eye, Shen Yu thought of the only life-saving straw, and quickly grabbed Lin Rong’an’s sleeve and asked, “Is he really a child of the Shen family?”
“Of course not.” Lin Rong’an hooked up the corners of his mouth meaningfully, and handed over the DNA test results to Shen Yu.
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
After stealing Tao Mu’s hair for DNA identification, Lin Rong’an secretly uploaded the samples to the Lost Children’s Gene Bank for comparison. If Tao Mu was really a child of the Shen family, then this DNA test sample should be able to be successfully compared with the sample that Chairman Shen left in the gene bank. Unfortunately, the final result showed that Tao Mu was not the child of the Shen family.
“I knew it. I knew it.” Shen Yu held the inspection report tightly like a treasure. With an ecstatic expression: “All of this must be Tao Mu’s conspiracy. He just wants to make trouble for me. He just wants to replace me. I won’t let him succeed. Absolutely not.”

【…——everyone credited Tao Mu for his outstanding performance….】
Are they wrong though?? 🤷♀️
【… Shen Yu didn’t understand. Why couldn’t he get around the obstacle named Tao Mu in every step he took?… 】
Well, since the beginning our Xiao Mu never want anything to do with you. It’s always you who constantly pestered him. But now that the result is not in the favor to you, suddenly it is Xiao Mu’s fault?? Don’t mention getting in your way, if you didn’t pestered Xiao Mu, he probably forgot you are exist most of the time. Gosh, whoever managed to deal with SY and still come out sane deserve to become transcendental beings.
【…But she had no intention of putting her child to death. // In her opinion, the child who was abandoned in the rental house must have died..
Did she or did she not want her child to be dead? She seems to contradict her own self here. Well, it seems that the ability of having zero awareness to one own self is very strong in her DNA.
Really, at first I sympathise with her. Because, as she said, life of a single mum in conservative era is very hard. So I understand if she wanted to give her child up. But then she spend two paragraphs trying to justify herself for abandoned two-months old baby to starve to dead on his own when she can give him up to the orphanage instead. And I like, no nope I’m too sober for this.
【… she would suggest that the family return the name back to Tao Mu!… 】
Nahhh, the name Tao Mu given to Xiao Mu by his grandma who he love very much. So Shen family can keep the name Shen Yu for yourself. Our family don’t want it. Thank you very much.
【… One must know that his household registration had long been moved onto the household registration book of Liu Yao and Meng Qi’s family…. 】
Since in last life Shen family didn’t want to registered Xiao Mu to their household, then don’t come trying to do it now that our family’s greatest dads of all time already cover it. Bye~
【…“All of this must be Tao Mu’s conspiracy….】
The only conspiracy our Xiao Mu did is to make the DNA don’t match. The rest is just Karma doing her job. 🤷♀️
