The South China Morning Post ran a profile of Southern Metropolis News editor Cheng Yizhong, who just spent his 39th birthday in prison:
“In an interview late last year with a men’s magazine, Southern Metropolis Daily editor-in-chief Cheng Yi- zhong said his favourite movies were prison dramas. He cited The Shawshank Redemption – a story of a miscarriage of justice and finding hope in prison – as one of the films he liked best. But little did he know that a few months later he would be experiencing prison life at first hand.”
