"Environment, loneliness, freedom, salvation, and ideology flood this story, and there's no way to change them. 'I have to adapt a new strategy, take a different angle. I must find a different logic and a new way to recognize and identify with the world,' I told myself. I refuse to go into the silence and burden of reality. Instead, I want my characters to dance with true desire. All I am doing is just quoting from their verses and making their every word authentic." [Chen Guan]
