The South China Morning Post has an interesting feature on Deng Yujiao, the folk heroine waitress whose story of stabbing a violent and lusty official rocketed her to national fame. In a Chicago-esque twist, Deng, a high school dropout, is now being approached with offers to work in everything from botanical research to movies. Professor Fu, a professor in botany at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that she should become his student and work for a PhD. Meanwhile, some film and television producers have “cast their eyes on Ms Deng to star in a movie.” How will all this attention play out? Nobody knows, since her movements still may be restricted and there are fears she could be targeted for retaliatory actions if she stays in her hometown.
