We all fantasize about starring in our own real life movie scenes, but so few of us really get to live it.
But that’s just what one young woman did on Monday, spotted burning a pile of designer bags while arguing with her husband outside their stately home in true Asian soap opera fashion.
According to Ifeng News, The young woman, Xiao Tong (alias), is a student studying in Guangzhou who married into her wealthy husband’s family after only a year of dating. She has lived out the dreams of many young Chinese: five star hotels, a mansion, fancy cars and designer bags. So what’s the problem?
Well, it turns out that Xiao Tong actually comes from a poor family and was unable to get used to the restrictions of living a life of luxury and found herself unable to live up to the standards of being a perfect daughter-in-law. Wanting to free herself from this hell on earth, Xiao Tong happened to watch a film online starring a woman that was in a similar situation to her own. The movie spurred her into dramatic action, causing her to send her LV, Prada, Hermes and rich husband all up in smoke.
Too cliche to possibly be true? Well, you wouldn’t be the first one to think that this story is a bit far-fetched, netizens have been cracking jokes about the awful plot of this latest Asian drama.
“Judging by the acting, I can only give this film a score of 0.1, it’s too fake,” one netizen joked.
“Screenwriting wasn’t bad, camera work was ok too, where are they from?” another asked.
“This film has already been blacklisted, such a weak plot, the only way it could be interesting is if a ghost showed up,” wrote another web user.
If fights between couples really do take inspiration from movies and TV, we just hope that it works the other way around as well. We would be interested in seeing how a rooftop row plays out on the silver screen.
