In China, we don't consider someone truly beautiful until we have known them for a long time, and we know what's underneath the skin.
China's cinema has been rising for some time; it has more exposure, so my chances of becoming internationally known are better. But the first thing I have to do is learn English. If I can grasp the language, then perhaps I can think about the U.S.

My parents sent me to a dance class, so it was a road chosen by them, not me. But I enjoyed it so much I knew I would become a performer.
My profession has helped me to grow up.
There's nothing in Chinese culture that is an equivalent of the geisha. It's so different, so special to Japan.
