Wen Zhang’s infidelity may destroy a relationship and make a good book

So I’m a bit late, but after reading this news, I couldn’t help thinking how everyone just loves a good romance scandal. So it’s no surprise China sets a record for most tweeted issue when the Chinese actor Wen Zhang made an apology to his wife amidst rumors of infidelity.

According to Louise Watt, “his post had been forwarded more than 1.2 million times and . . . the topic trended above the missing Malaysian plane and a protest against a petrochemical plant in Maoming that turned violent”

Now I don’t want to paint a false picture that the Chinese care about celebrity gossip more than political issues. We all know China regulates what and how much political news is accessible to the Chinese public, which may have affected the interest shown on Twitter. Still, my nose smells the foundation of a romance novel.

Just imagine a main character’s love affair is uncovered by monstrous fans who want him to get back with his wife or else start a massive boycott. Forced to maintain an image, he hits to the web. With the internet becoming so important in our lifestyles, we have to make it a part of our novels.
