On the cover of the latest Southern People Weekly is the most popular "post-80s" writer, Han Han. He's a best seller author, a singer, a blogger, and a professional race-car driver. SPW digs deep in this feature report, looking at Han himself, what he represents, and his entire generation's attitudes toward society.
Below are some excerpts from the interview between Han Han and SPW reporter Wu Hongfei.
Southern People Weekly: What do you enjoy best about racing? Is the sense of speed?
SPW: What do you think about money?
I just take care of my own stuff. Even when stocks and funds were hot, I never had any thought to buy ito them. I just do my job.
SPW: People think you are rebellious.
SPW: But you do have a bit of courage.
