PAI Hsien-yung is possibly best known for the fictional yet convincing characters he created in his fiction. These characters include dance club hostesses YIN Xue-yan and JIN Tai-pan, widowed wife of WWII soldier ZHU Qing, the young rebel Long Zi, and the coming-of- age homosexual Ah Qing. These personas are so vividly depicted that not only readers find them realistic, generations of artists and creative professionals have also use them as inspiration for numerous adaptions for television shows, movies and theater plays. In 2003, PAI adapted, produced and directed the Young Lovers’ Edition for Chinese theater classic The Peony Pavilion. It revitalized the art of Kuan Opera by introducing it to the otherwise uninterested younger and foreign audience. The Young Lovers’ Edition was eventually presented on campuses, performance halls and venues in the United States and Europe.
