Primarily, the story tells you about the family’s life before all of the trouble and nonsense brought about by the monkey’s paw; before a lesson is learned, you must make a mistake. From before the characters in the story had to learn the theme, the author expressed, “Father and son playing chess; whose ideas of the game involved some very unusual moves… the white haired old lady knitting by the fire” (1). This quote shows how calm and tranquil everything was before the monkey’s paw came about to mess up the lives of the acclimated family. The description taken from the exposition of the story contrasts with what happens when they wish upon the monkey’s paw, and how they learn the lesson of ‘be careful what you wish for’. Secondly, after the family makes their first wish for £200, they are visited by a man who had come to inform them that their son had died, and that the company must present the family with exactly £200, or otherwise known as what they wished for.

The original text is Journey to the West written by Cheng’en Wu in the Ming dynasty.

It will be a TV show, and the main clew of the story is about an anti-corruption 5-members group organized by the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCPCCDI), targets to tour for anti-corruption movement. It will be partial faithful to the original text, similar with its linear narrative structure and characteristics but will absolutely reverse all sequences to flashback to show the possible ideas that implied within the original text, and the details well be demonstrated in the following paragraphs.

Asian Americans were the first minority to appear on films. Their image changed from how Americans viewed them. The characters were flat, they did not have many characteristics or traits, they had a label and stuck to it. Asian American women in films were hard to take serious because of their lack of complexity. Sometimes they were cast by white actresses.
The Masculine Man is not Asian Mainstream media constantly through television and films reinforce ideas about what it means to be a masculine man in society. In film masculine men are depicted as aggressive, strong, physically desirable and white, deviation from these norms classifies men as not masculine (Garst & Bodenhausen 1997). Asian men are generally depicted in media as shy, nerdy, feminine, evil and angry or money hungry (Han et al., 2014). According to Victoria Do (2006), since the early 20th century Asian American men have been stereotyped as asexual and effeminate. These are both counterparts to masculinity where asexuality is where an individual does not have sexual feelings and being effeminate is where a man has or show characteristics
