We are all sorry for Wei Hui’s misery, but we still loathe her notorious Shanghai Baby—exactly what in this book attracts people? A slutty Shanghainese girl has an affair with disloyal married German man? C’mon, like these kind of stories aren’t rampant in Shanghai? When we learned this book was adapted into a movie, we felt even worse. This Shanghaiist, as a Shanghainese woman, thinks this trash movie is going to make the reputation of Shanghainese women even worse, urgh! But when someone threw us this link today, we are shocked to see how well Bai Ling (we don’t like her either) fits this character, Wei Hui’s book and Bai Ling’s acting, indeed a match made in heaven!
