Another day, another Kappa Girl story. Looks like our good friend has caught the attention of professional pornographers and may finally be getting her big break soon. You see, the kind souls at adult entertainment studio Harmony Films were totally flabbergasted to hear that Kappa Girl was sacked by her employer, and after purveying the 12 minute sex video that got her into trouble, have decided to help her do what she does best and make money at the same time by offering a contract to her — no, not as a fluffer or a lighting assistant, but as a pornstar.
A publicist for Harmony Films has sought Shanghaiist’s help in reaching out to Kappa Girl. Here’s what part of the press release they sent us looked like:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Harmony Films Offers Contract to X-Rated Shanghai Internet Sensation
LONDON — Harmony Films is extending a contract offer to Chinese Internet adult sensation “Kappa Girl” to further her career in the adult industry by shooting for the international award winning X-rated studio in the West.
Kappa Girl, a Shanghai resident identified by her surname Huang in news reports, is featured in a 12 minute clip that catapulted her to the top of Chinese peer-to-peer download search queries. She announced through her blog that she’ll make bar appearances, sit down for exclusive interviews and accept underwear modeling assignments — for a price.
However, since her video gained notoriety, Kappa Girl reportedly lost her full time job for “tarnishing” her store’s image and was detained by the police. Uploading and shooting adult videos is a crime in China.
“Ms. Huang is a huge star in her native China,” Jason Maskell, manager of sales and marketing for Harmony Films, said. “We’d like to offer her the chance to make some real money by working and shooting with us in the West. She won’t be persecuted for being on video as an X-rated performer and she can gain an even larger base of fans. She just needs to contact us.”
While the Chinese is market is closed to the adult industry, Maskell said it’s only a matter of time before it opens up.
“We know the population is aware of porn and that Ms. Huang’s scene isn’t the first piece of pornography to be seen in the country,” Maskell said. “When China does open up to adult content, partnering with someone identifiable like Kappa Girl will help us gain a foothold in that market. Like any other business, we’re eager to bring our products to its billion-plus consumers.”

Scots-born Gazzman and Tanya Hyde, fan favorites and internationally awarded directors, call the company home for their consistently over-the-top productions that can compete with the best in the adult market.
We asked Harmony Films to give us a rough idea of what Kappa Girl’s contract would look like, what remuneration she should be looking at and any idea of what her first film would look like. No answers were forthcoming, but they did take pains to highlight this to us:
Harmony Films is a UK-based company, and most of the content they shoot is in Europe and US. Its reach is limited, as you can imagine, in someplace like China.
Riiiight… like she would be able to keep her new job a secret after the studio sent this press release via the interwebs. We’ll be sure though to inform Harmony Films of Kappa Girl’s availability as soon as she gets her “Get out of jail free” card. As far as we understand, she’s still behind bars now.
