Boy group Victoria finally debuted after three years of hard training. However, their performance as a group fell flat, and they announced their disbandment after just a year.
Eight years later, a hot topic once again brought this group to the attention of netizens.
Seeing the surging popularity, the management company urgently called back the members and invested heavily to organize a variety show for the group.
As soon as the first episode of the show was announced, it was met with cold mockery from netizens. “A variety show with a bunch of washed-up old men, not even dogs would watch this!”
When the show aired, the five members reunited, leaving everyone in awe.
Netizen A: “Isn’t that suited-up elite guy the CEO of Guang Yao Media? What is he doing here?”
Fan: “He’s Captain Sang Luo of Victoria. A real prince charming! Wealthy and handsome, a perfect investment!”
Netizen B: “Isn’t that the internet-famous musician with millions of fans?”
Fan: “That’s our amazing vocalist, Xiao Han. A human Barbie! Gorgeous and sweet, excelling in both singing and composing!”
Netizen C: “I know that Cheng Yun An guy! He’s a popular parenting blogger on XX platform! Wishful thinking of a perfect husband!”
Fan: “The strongest rapper on the surface of the Earth, get to know him? Cool and stylish, the ace of V Group!”
Netizen D: “What the heck! Why is Jiang Zhi Xia here?”
Fan: “Doesn’t everyone know that our Best Actor Jiang is born to be an idol? One of the faces of V Group and their ultimate attacker – Jiang Zhi Xia!”
Netizen E: “Is Jiang Zhi Xia’s appearance just one of his features?! Is your group trying to conquer the world?”
And then, the final member appeared.
Fan: “Introducing our youngest member, the ultimate face who’s also the group’s favorite – Xia Zhi! He can be salty or sweet, any style you like!”
Netizens checked his background – an incredibly young professor at XX University.
Netizen: “How did a lineup like this flop in the first place? Outrageous!”
After the first episode aired, the group went from “washed-up old men” to be officially renamed as “treasure boys.” Netizens felt a mix of regret and admiration for the members’ unwavering chemistry and team spirit over the past decade.
At this moment, a revelation surfaced that the initial disbandment was due to internal conflicts among the teammates. It was none other than the most popular members in the group, Jiang Zhi Xia and Xia Zhi.
After the show concluded, a celebratory banquet was broadcasted by the production team. Jiang Zhi Xia, who couldn’t hold his liquor, was quickly intoxicated.
The online viewers had the privilege of witnessing the icy and domineering Jiang Zhi Xia transform into a sweet and affectionate little bun beside Xia Zhi.
“Honey, I miss you so much. It’s my fault, will you forgive me? Can we start anew?”
Netizen: “…What happened to not getting along?”
