Then, finally, she and her mother sat down and talked about grandfather for the first time.
The first time he left Shanghai to study in the United States, Chen Chong took only a small amount of luggage, but unconsciously took his grandfather's old photos with him. Later, she was surprised to find that she had not forgotten her grandfather, "but all I remember is the day he left, and I can't remember anything else. I must have tried my best to recall every move he made that day and to understand why he never went home. That day, like the solar eclipse, blocked all the sunshine in my memory But her mother also told her, "your name is from my grandfather, which means the second ah Zhong."

Her performance gives us unlimited possibilities. We are not sure about all these. If you watch Chen Chong's performance more than once, you will have a different understanding. But she was the representative of that era, and she made the whole film come true. (comment by Ang Lee)
In 1998, Chen Chong applied to China Adoption Center for international adoption, asking for adoption of children under 2 years old. In July, he adopted two twin sisters Xueying and Xuehua in Nanning social welfare center. In October, Chen Chong's daughter was born, but she insisted in an interview: "we treat the three daughters equally." Agent response: Chen Chong didn't have much energy to take care of three children at the same time, so he "transferred" his twin daughter to a New York couple. Since Chen Chong is a U.S. citizen, the child will also become a U.S. citizen after being adopted, so the procedures for re selecting adoptive families will be operated by the U.S. adoption department, and the China adoption center cannot participate in the specific operation procedures.
