You're white. Do you want to be in my friend's soap opera?

Raymond Chen

What does a Mandarin-speaking American woman in Beijing do? If you’re Rachel DeWoskin, you serendipitously wind up the star of a daytime Mandarin-language soap opera called Foreign Babes in Beijing, a show that takes all the Western stereotypes (from the Chinese point of view) and milks them for all their melodramatic worth. (They probably watched too much Dallas.)
