Gimme Kudos

Synopsis: Old-fashioned, middle-aged Yang Hongqi claims that on a rainy night he saved a university coed from the threat of sexual violence on the outer limits of Nanjing city. He soon begs Gu Guoge, a superstar reporter at Nanjing Newspaper, for public kudos in the press. At first Gu ignores the absurd request, but pushed by Yang's desperate and tenacious attitude Gu begins to look at verifying the case. Finally he finds the victim, Ouyang Hua but no witness. Later, it is revealed why Yang strives so desperately to publicize his heroics: extolled as a model of a national laborer, his father has lived with many medals and commendations on the wall of his hometown and wants to hang Yang's commendation on the wall before his death.

A guy, a fatty to be precise, had entered my life.

You should gimme kudos.


I did a good deed.

What good deed?

A very good deed.

What do you mean a very good deed?

I saved someone.

Saved someone?


Adult or child?

A girl.

You did it to for the kudos?

Good deeds should receive kudos.

Ha, ha.


Kudos would bring fortune to someone.



Who? Not you?

No... not me.

What do you mean by fortune?

Oh... what?

What's your name?

Yang Hongqi.

What were you asking me about?

What do you mean by fortune?


Yes, what's your view?


That is...

When I'm hungry...

I see someone with a meat bun.

Then he's more fortunate than I.

I'm cold, and I see someone with a thick jacket.

Then he's more fortunate than I.

I wanna go to the restroom...

But you're using the only toilet.

Then you're more fortunate than I.

What's so funny?

Never been to the restroom?

I'm 38, won't I understand this?


Hello. Who's this?

My appointment was cancelled.

No birthday celebration.

You celebrate for me.


Miyi is a cop. She loves a dangerous job.

She would tell me a story every time

she returns from duty.

In these stories, she's always running,

always the heroine.

But I'm skeptical.

What kind of times are these,

asking newspapers for kudos?

Yeah, that was strange.

Man or woman?


What's the big deal?

Said he saved a girl.

Rape? Was she raped?


She beautiful?

Damn you!

Three reporting directions for next month.

One, Women's Union, to look at women's life.

Two, underage presence

at entertainment places.

I have an initial plan.

Investigate internet bars in three areas.

I'm more interested in this issue.

I think I'm more responsible now.

This issue concerns the next generation.

I'm waiting for Gu, the reporter.

Been buying the paper for 3 days, nothing.


No kudos for me.

Night of February 14.

What time?

Didn't wear a watch.


Late night.

Late night.

Been dark for quite a while.

It was raining hard as I passed Fen Street.

Heard a woman's yell for help.

Saw a woman pinned down by a man.

He was tearing off her clothes.

I rushed over.

He ran away but I didn't give chase.

And I saved that woman.


So we should give you kudos.

You agree?

No witness to what you said.

I can't verify if it's true.

Without verification...

Maybe it never happened.

To report that would be fake news.

Fake news would be deceiving our readers.

It's against our ethics.

Fake? What I said was fake?

I said it's possible.

I saved her. Really did save her.

Who can verify?

Oh... where's the bike?

You rode a bike here?

Yes... I locked it here.

You can't park here.

The Administration took it away.

Took it... How? It's locked!

Easy. Loosen the front axis screw with a driver.

Go pay the fine.

How much?


I won't pay.

I can get a new one for $20.

Yang's behavior interested me.

On Tan Wei's urging, I went to the university...

to see if there's such a girl.

Hello girls.


What's the matter?

I wanna find a person.



Ouyang Hua is the name.

Ouyang Hua.

Who are you?

What do you need her for?

Is there such a person here?

Over here.

Excuse us.

She's Ouyang Hua.

Jump! Jump!

Jump! Bet she won't have the guts to jump.

I'm Gu Guoge from Tomorrow Evening News.

My colleague Tan Wei.


You have a cell phone?


Can I borrow it?

So you're the reporter Gu, I know you.

Saw your byline on the paper.

Your name is quite special

and I remembered it.

Great, I got what I want.
