Fang Qiu answered Zheng Chao’s question correctly, which made him win the cheers of the audience and the praise of the judges.
Then the show continued.
However, the following ten questions were very simple and very few people were eliminated. As a result, the audience’s concentration was slightly reduced.
In the end, the number on the big screen reached 100.
The competition was over!
“100 out of 340. That’s it?”
On the Internet, people were starting the discussion,
“How could it be so fast?”
“I think it’s only been ten minutes. Is this the end?”
“It can’t be. How come the first episode which lasted 90 minutes already ended?
“Oh my god, this is killing me. If I had known earlier, I wouldn’t have watched it. Now I’m addicted to it, but the first episode was over. How can I stand it?”
“What the hell is the director doing? How can he tantalize us like this?”
“There’s no need to stop. Come on, I want to watch more.”
While countless people was praying, the show was not over yet.
In the dormitory, Fang Qiu was also looking forward to what would happen next.
Because he knew that it was going to play the theme song he was going to sing. This was his first time on TV. Naturally, he was very interested in the extended effect of the television, so he still stared at the TV intently.
The next moment, the pictures on the TV turned back.
“There are exactly 100 people left,” the host looked at the camera with a smile and said. “So far, the first episode of the show is coming to an end. However, there is still a talent show before we put an end to our show.”
“Next, please welcome Fang Qiu to sing the theme song of our Young Chinese Medicine Doctor to all the audience on the scene, on TV, and in front of the computer—Come On, Chinese Medicine!”
“Sing a song?” The three roommates of Fang Qiu were stunned.
Jiang Miaoyu and her roommates froze, so were Jiang Mengjie and all the people who knew Fang Qiu.
Fang Qiu’s parents were even more surprised.
“Our son, is going to sing the theme song?” Fang Qiu’s mother looked at his father with a look of disbelief.
“It seems that my son is going to work in the entertainment circle,” Fang Qiu’s father commented.
“That’s great.” Fang Qiu’s mother immediately became excited, staring at the TV like a fan. “My son will soon become a big star, ha-ha.”
Fang Qiu’s father, “…”
On TV, Fang Qiu’s show was going to begin.
With the help of the lights on the stage, the Beijing Opera and China Allegro at the beginning suddenly made countless people shocked.
“Is he going to sing the China Allegro?”
“My god, this is not rap, right? It seems like he’s going to tell a story.”
However, just as everyone was confused, Fang Qiu began to sing.
Everyone immediately stopped talking and listened carefully.
When it came to the chorus, the loud and catchy melody, together with the subtitles on TV, attracted many people to hum along.
The somewhat cheerful melody was really catchy.
Listening to the song, everyone forgot that the show was about to end.
Just as everyone was singing happily, the advertisement suddenly began to show up on the TV screen.
It was not until then that everyone found that the first episode of the show was over!
“Clap, clap, clap…” As the subtitles rolled, the song also came to the second part of the chorus. The camera was showing many contestants present.
Finally, everyone stood up and applauded along with the beat of the song!
On the bullet screen, all kinds of comments could be seen.
Everyone was complaining that the show was too short.
However, just as the theme song was finished and everyone was ready to turn to other channels, the host appeared again!
Everyone was stunned.
“Thank you all for your support for our show—Young Chinese Medicine Doctor, as well as the great support from all sponsors. Have you all left? If you’re still watching the show, you’re lucky.”
“You don’t believe me? Go ahead and take a look!”
After the host said that, the screen suddenly showed the preview of the second episode.
Seeing the preview, all the audience in front of the TV were stunned.
This was a special preview made by Central Television. In the announcement, the 100 contestants who made it to the next round would fight one-on-one on the challenge platform. It looked rather intense.
In the end, it was fixed on the scene that Fang Qiu and Zheng Chao were standing on the challenge platform.
Everyone in front of the TV smiled wryly.
There were even more complaints on the bullet screen of the Central Television official website.
It was better if they didn’t watch this preview.
How could they possibly sleep after watching this?
In the first episode, Fang Qiu was challenged by Zheng Chao, while in the second episode, the two of them went straight to the challenge platform.
What exactly was going to happen between the two of them?
Who would win this battle?
How would it end?
Would Fang Qiu be able to fight back successfully?
Why did he have to go to the challenge platform? What were the rules of the second round of the competition?
Countless questions and curiosity lingered in the hearts of all the audience.
Comments on Weibo went viral again!
“Damn, they can’t do that!”
“It’s so tiring to follow a show. It’s only the first episode. Why do I feel more nervous than watching a soap opera set in the Qing dynasty?”
“Fang Qiu really started a fight with Zheng Chao. This editing is so good at attracting our attention! Shameless!”
“Fuck, director, come out. I promise I won’t hit you to death!”
“I’m done. I can’t fall asleep tonight.”
“It’s clear that for the next week, I can only spend my time browsing the posts on Weibo!”
“I’m seeking a spoiler here. What’s the next round of the battle? Did Fang Qiu win or lose?”
“I support Fang Qiu to defeat Zheng Chao!”
With all kinds of discussion, the heat of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor had skyrocketed and instantly occupied three of the top ten positions on the Weibo topic list. Although the ranking was not high, it would inevitably rise again as the heated discussion continued.
At the same time, the topic also ranked high on Post Bar.
The next day, in dorm 501, Fang Qiu, as always, got up early to exercise.
As a contestant and even one of the most attractive contestants, Fang Qiu was not expecting the second episode at all. After all, he had already experienced it in person and known every detail and result, so he wasn’t quite interested.
However, the audience was far more interested.
When Fang Qiu went out to run in the early morning, he was stopped and asked by no less than ten students.
He had no choice but to tell everyone over and over again that he had signed a confidentiality agreement with the TV station and was not allowed to spoil the show.
In order to avoid this kind of embarrassing situation to happen again, Fang Qiu rushed back to the dormitory after buying himself breakfast.
“Hey, bro, you’re back?” As soon as he entered the door, Sun Hao’s voice was heard.
However, Fang Qiu saw that Zhou Xiaotian and Zhu Benzheng were wrapped in the quilts and sitting on Sun Hao’s bed. The three of them were staring at Sun Hao’s laptop.
“Yo, it’s so rare. You guys woke up so early?”
Fang Qiu looked at the three and teased, “There is no class this morning. You haven’t seized the opportunity to sleep longer.”
“How could I?” Zhou Xiaotian smiled wryly and said, “I was just thinking about the next episode the whole night. How could I possibly fall asleep?”
“Me too,” Zhu Benzheng also gave a wry smile.
“The director of your show is so annoyed! The editing of the preview indeed got me. It’s the first time that I wanted to see a show crazily,” Sun Hao also complained.
“Is it so attractive?” Fang Qiu was stunned.
“Don’t talk nonsense. You can check it out online.” Sun Hao curled his lips and said, “It’s only been one night. You can see how popular your show is. There are reports everywhere. Almost all the video websites have the interesting sidelights on your show. The number of views is even more shocking.”
Hearing that, Fang Qiu smiled slightly.
While eating the steamed buns bought from the canteen, Fang Qiu took out his phone and went online to have a look.
“The ‘Young Chinese Medicine Doctor’ officially broadcast, and the heat of the topic is skyrocketing!”
“Young Chinese Medicine Doctor showed the first episode, and Fang Qiu was challenged!”
“Enter into the entertainment circle? Fang Qiu sings the theme song of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor!”
“The topic heat of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor keeps rising on Weibo!”
As soon as he tapped the browser on his mobile phone, Fang Qiu saw the push notification of news one after another.
Fang Qiu was shocked.
He didn’t expect the show to be so popular.
More importantly, most of the news had his name in it. What were they doing?
Entering the home page of an authoritative media, Fang Qiu read the report for a while and immediately swiped down to read the comments.
“It’s so awesome.”
“This show is excellent. It didn’t only instruct the medical knowledge; it was also edited like a variety show. It’s so thoughtful!”
“Love Fang Qiu very much!”
“I think Zheng Chao is not bad.”
“Get out of my way, all of you. Leng Wenzhuo is mine!”
“Hey, if I don’t fight with you for Leng Wenzhuo, you are not allowed to fight with me for Jiang Miaoyu!”
“Go away! Jiang Miaoyu is mine!”
“When will it broadcast the next episode? I think I’ve been waiting for years.”
“That’s right. The show is so infuriating. It should release such a preview. They’re simply attracting our attention.”
“It’s only been one night, but I can’t wait any longer. I still want to watch more. What should I do?”
Seeing these comments, Fang Qiu couldn’t help chuckling.
“Does someone want to take away my Jiang Miaoyu?” Fang Qiu thought. It seemed that it was necessary to declare his position.
After reading the comments on this article, Fang Qiu immediately turned to his Weibo, but he didn’t log in his account. He knew that if he logged in Weibo now, he would definitely be annoyed by private messages and comments.
Therefore, he chose not to log in and went straight to the Weibo page.
Fang Qiu found out that three topics of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor actually appeared on the trending list. They were all ranking top five on the list.
Among them, the topic—Fang Qiu was challenged in the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor even rushed to the top of the trending list.
Although it just ranked to the top only at this moment, it was enough to prove the popularity of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor.
Fang Qiu suddenly found out that his name actually appeared on the real-time search list. He was currently ranked second, and the first was the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor.
It had only been one night.
In such a short night, the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor which had only released the first episode was already so popular now.
At this moment, Fang Qiu had an unquestionable feeling at the bottom of his heart.
The “Young Chinese Medicine Doctor” was really popular!
Fang Qiu was really excited.
The popularity explosion of the show would inevitably make all the people in the country learn more and be willing to accept traditional Chinese Medicine.
