Tang Feng’s performance in the second episode of True Star Training Class was just as good as his performance in the first. Whether it be singing or horseback riding skills, he was well above the other trainees. This time, however, he wasn’t at the center of the recent popular news. To talk about this matter, we would have to rewind to the horseback riding lesson a few days ago.

The episodes of the training class would only be broadcast a week after its filming finished. For the first part of this week, Tang Feng, Ge Chen, and the other trainees participated in music lessons. They learned to play a wide variety of fun instruments and worked through several vocal techniques under Sting’s guidance. Naturally, Tang Feng was gifted at music. It was also worth mentioning that Tang Tian Tian was rather good at singing; her voice was sweet and adorable, just like her personality. It seemed her agency already had plans to create an album for her.

Today was the highly anticipated horse-riding lesson. Tang Feng knew how to ride a horse, but he didn’t especially like horse-riding. Robert Downey Jr. had described it correctly in the movie Sherlock Homles: A Game of Shadows when he had said, “Horses are dangerous at both ends and crafty in the middle. Why would I want anything with a mind of its own bobbing about between my legs?” Despite that, this wasn’t the main reason why Tang Feng disliked horses.

Due to his ailing body, he had been prohibited from riding horses when he was Fiennes. In the past, there had been several celebrities who had been startled while riding and died from the sudden onset of a past illness due to the shock. This meant that there were people who would go into horse-riding despite knowing the dangers involved. Tang Feng barely qualified as one of those people. He only “barely” qualified as the horses he had ridden were all ponies with mild temperaments that only measured one meter at the withers.

At the start, Tang Feng rather enjoyed horse-riding. A one-meter tall pony still counted as a horse after all, right?

The reason he started disliking horse-riding was because he had once come across Gino at the riding fields by chance. That bastard had been riding a two-meter tall black horse and had leisurely trotted up to him from behind. After seeing Tang Feng on his pony, Gino burst into a guffaw. He apparently found the situation so hilarious that he bent over with laughter and was even wiping tears from his eyes.

Was it really that funny? Tang Feng hated Gino with a passion back then. Ever since that encounter, he never went to the riding fields again.

In any case, with his current healthy body, he was finally able to ride the big horses.

Quite a few of the trainees came from good family backgrounds, so they more or less knew the basics of horseback riding. Additionally, there was a riding instructor for every trainee. This time, they were undergoing one-on-one training.

Tang Feng’s instructor was an old jockey who was around forty to fifty years old. The two of them got along quite well. Under his instructor’s guidance, Tang Feng quickly remastered the techniques of horse-riding. It was his first time riding such a big horse, but the thrill and carefree sensation of being on a horse quickly suppressed his initial fear.

Along with the other trainees, Tang Feng took a slow trot around the riding field. The instructors, staff members, and cameramen followed behind them in cars. He was the fifth person to finish circling the riding field. Tang Tian Tian had managed to come in first.

When Tang Feng dismounted from his horse, he noticed that someone new had appeared among the spectators outside the riding field. After taking a closer look, he saw that it was Su Qi Cheng, someone he hadn’t seen in quite a while. Was Su Qi Cheng here to visit Ge Chen? It was rare for a wealthy, single, and handsome boss like Su Qi Cheng to love a celebrity that dearly. As the filming on Tang Feng’s side was finished for the day, he was allowed to leave. To be polite, Tang Feng waved at Su Qi Cheng in greetings as he left the riding field.

“President Su, are you here to visit Ge Chen?” Tang Feng walked over with a smile.

Su Qi Chen smiled and returned Tang Feng’s wave. “I’m here with a client today. I came over to watch the filming as it was along the way. Is this your first time riding a horse? You seem very good at it.”

It actually wasn’t his first time, but Tang Feng merely smiled. “You can stop making fun of me. My skills are too mediocre to even talk about. I think Ge Chen will be finished with his lesson soon. We don’t have anything going on this afternoon at the training class. President Su, do you want to go in and wait for him?”

“No, I’m fine with just standing out here.” Seeing that Tang Feng was sweating due to the sun, Su Qi Cheng pulled out a towelette packet from his pockets and handed it to the actor. “Here, wipe the sweat off your face.”

“Thank you.” Tang Feng accepted the packet and turned around to lean against the wooden fence that encircled the riding field. His face was slightly red from the sun, the rosiness of his cheeks made them appear like ripened apples, tempting one to give them an impulsive bite.

“You’re welcome.” Su Qi Cheng pulled his eyes away from Tang Feng’s face. “I watched your dance on last week’s episode. Although I’ve already seen you dance with Lu Tian Chen at the party some time ago, it was still quite entertaining to watch. Oh right, why did Charles suddenly join Dream Lover? I was shocked when I saw him on TV.”

Tang Feng chuckled. “I was shocked when I saw him too. I never knew a guy like him would participate in dating shows like Dream Lover. I almost thought he would eliminate me in the first round.”

“Clearly, he joined because of you. Although I haven’t known Charles for long, I think you might be the first person, and perhaps also the last, capable of making him turn around and chase after a past lover.” Su Qi Cheng’s tone of voice made it seem as if he was merely joking, but Tang Feng could hear a hint of sincerity within the words themselves.

Tang Feng smiled wryly and lifted an eyebrow in response. If Su Qi Cheng was trying to praise him, then he’d rather not be praised for that sort of thing.

Both Su Qi Cheng and Tang Feng were enjoying their chat, but just then, chaos erupted inside the riding field. They heard someone shouting in distress, “Ge Chen fell off a horse! Ge Chen fell off a horse!”

Su Qi Cheng quickly leapt over the wooden fence and ran towards the voice, Tang Feng following right behind him.

    Thank you.. I really lovd this novel!

  2. Cherie says:

    It’s books like ‘True Star’ that make me regret giving up Chinese when I was younger. If I ever hope to read the original version, I need to improve my Chinese fast :( I won’t give up easily though.

    To readers who have read this book, could you tell me if Tang Feng will end up with one partner or in a harem of his own? I am very curious :)

    I want to thank the translator(s) for updating even when they are busy. I still have a long way to go in reading Chinese books but in the meantime, the wonderful translation will tide me over first.

    Can anyone introduce me books that hold the same themes (e.g. reincarnation, BL) as ‘True Star’? Thanks!

    Here Tang Feng realizes that he might be in a slightly difficult situation–he’s not going to be able to get rid of Charles so easily!

    When I first saw the title I thought it meant “falling off a high horse” or something like that. Basically, I thought it applied to Ge Chen, who recently entered the training, was finally going to be overshadowed by Tang Feng. Who knew he LITERALLY fell off the horse, whether on purpose or not, but in a different meaning (him wanting attention).

    Who knows, the title could have a double meaning. And the fact that Ge Chen had to resort to deliberately hurt himself just to grab some petty attention instead of challenging Tang Feng straight on shows that he is already beginning to lose.

    Anyways, we all know that Tang Feng will eventually overtake Ge Chen in popularity and that’s when Ge Chen “falls off his high horse” ;D

  6. Rain says:

    Thanks for the chapter! I have a feeling Ge Chen did that on purpose…;;

  7. Phat008 says:

    Thank you so much for the new chapter release…..I’m just glad TF was not in the proximity of ge chan/ and horse accident bc it could be pinned on him.

    • yaniehime says:

      This incident will be another issue.. celebrity gossip and all.

      Stay tuned!

      (I really never liked Ge Chen. Until the end, he is a character I do not like but is someone who is necessary in the novel.)

  8. KT says:

    I’m starting to get a suspicion that Gino had something to do with the current Tang Feng’s resurrection. Maybe I’m crazy, but it feels like he knows who Tang Feng is.

  9. kei says:

    First of all thank u for the double updates in this novel…XD..huuh..Thank god that the person who fell from the horse is not Tang feng…hahaha…is Ge chen saw Tang feng chatting with Su qi then he choose a dramatic way to take the attention to him..?? isk3..your so sly Ge chen…X(

  10. Yukiona says:

    When I first read the title I was on the edge of my seat worried Tang Feng might get hurt in this chapter and humiliated but now I’m relieved it was just Ge Chen. That guy is a devil in angels clothing.

  11. Henrietta says:

    Can I breath a sigh of relief? Thank God Tang Feng wasn’t around when Ge Chen supposedly fell of his horse.
    I would hate if he will blackmail Tang Feng for that. Thank mamamia!

  12. kezi says:

    Dayum you guys are vicious lol But falling off a horse can lead to very serious injuries, no laughing matter at all. Although I wouldn’t put it past the little sneak to fall on purpose. In that case he deserves all the consequences.

  13. Asu says:

    I always feel that I never get enough of this novel when i reach the end of the chapter!
    I want to see more of TF with LTC scenes for some strange reason. I feel as if they haven’t had as much time as Charles with TF.
    Thank you so much for the chapter and I will be back indefinitely on the next release date!

  14. mao says:

    oh why..everyone, including me is thinking Ge chen did it on purpose! aww…i wanted Tang feng to be the one who fell though..!!

    thanks for the chapters!!

  15. Pijon says:

    Lol, I wonder if Ge Chen fell off because he saw Tang Feng with Su Qi Chen. XD Poor dude probably thinks Tang Feng is trying to steal his bread and butter again…

  16. drealicious says:

    I’m willing to bet Ge Chen planned it out
    Thanks for the chapter~

  17. intan says:

    Thank u for ur hardwork. I’m curious for what will happen to Ge Chen. I hope he lost the memory too. Hehehehe

    • Yukiya says:

    Albert is not welcome to the party!

    • YoungMind says:

      I don’t like him either and I’m pretty glad he fell XP ! Plus, I’m sure he fell because he wasn’t paying attention to his horse riding lesson and was instead watching Su Qi Cheng and Tang Feng.
