The coverline is: 'I see in my dreams - survey of the dreams of 29 Chinese people'. The magazine's editors asked 29 different people around China to draw a scene from their dreams and describe it. The dreamers include musician Dou Wei, security guard Wang Zhiyuan, actress Sun Li, construction worker Wang Maojun, Glenfiddich's China rep Cao Hua, Face Club DJ Xiao Fang, and model Guan Qi.

The magazine is produced by Xinrui 2000, which is owned by and under the auspices of several different companies and Guangdong provincial government organizations.
