《遠華案黑幕》作者 盛雪：「她當時是受到遠華案的影響，而被禁止演出。那個情況我在後來採訪賴昌星這個當事人的時候，他也給我說到過一些細節，在賴昌星的事件爆發初期，董文華確實通過她認識的朋友幫他說過情，幫他轉過信， 那麼就因為這樣一個過程，她在中國的舞臺上就禁演了許多年。」
China’s Military Singer Dong Wenhua Is Coming Back
Mainland military singer Dong Wenhua was banned
for 12 years due to her involvement in the Yuan Hua case.
According to Mainland official media,
she will have a leading role in the performance
during the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Political Performing troupe.
Dong Wenhua has been very controversial.
Her recent high-profiled comeback
has led to endless speculation.
But, many analysts think the reasons for her comeback
is the end of Jiang’s faction being near.
“People’s Daily" reported that performing troupe of the
PL General Political Department will perform from
May 13th to June 2nd, in the National Grand Theater
to celebrate its 60th anniversary.
On March 29, many celebrated performers, including
Dong Wenhua, attended a press conference.
Dong attracted most media’s attention.
This was her second high-profiled appearance following
the 2012 Spring Festival Gala extravaganza in Anhui Province.
Moreover, the entertainment media published
an article entitled,
“Five performances from the General Political
Department celebrating the 60th anniversary:
Dong Wenhua and Yan Weiwen play leading roles.”
It formally informed people of Dong Wenhua’s comeback.
Sheng Xue, author of the “Inside Story of Yuanhua Case,"
points out that Dong Wenhua’s comeback indicates the changes in China’s political climate.
Sheng Xue: “In Chinese society, regardless of the arts,
sports, economic, and socio-culture, every aspect is pointed
in one direction—towards politics.
Everything in China is dictated by the political climate.
Therefore, her comeback is telling us that the Chinese
political climate has changed.
King of micro-blog: “In the huge military performing troupe,
there are many talented performers, Dong Wenhua’s comeback tells us one thing.
That is, big bosses, who have prevented her from
coming back, are finished.
It takes Dong Wenhua’s comeback as an opportunity
to declare a position.
Dong Wenhua was banned 11 years ago for her involvement
in the biggest smuggling case known as the Yuanhua case.
Sheng Xue: “She was affected by the Yuanhua case.
When I interviewed Lai Changxing,
he filled in with some details.
Dong Wenhua actually did try to support him and
forward messages to him through friends.
She was banned on the Chinese stage for over 10 years
because of that.”
Later media reports revealed that Dong Wenhua actually
offended Luo Gan–Jiang’s cohort, who colluded with other units and ruined Dong’s reputation.
It is learned that Luo Gan ordered other reporters to spread
rumors about Dong, saying that she was Lai』s mistress and a suspect in the smuggling case.
Hence, Dong’s status plummeted in the minds
of Chinese people.
Sheng Xue: “In China, basically there is no independence
at all, especially in literature and art or the performing arts sectors.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has made it clear that
these sectors are only propaganda tools for the CCP.
The concept of the entertainment industry is totally different
in the arts community in Western society.
Thus, if you cannot completely conform to its political
climate, or grasp its political pulse, troubles will find you sooner or later.”
In 2007, Zhou Yongkang becames Luo Gan’s successor
of the Politics and Law Committee secretary.
It’s learned that as Jiang’s top thug, Zhou Yongkang ordered
and threatened various local governments to block Dong Wenhua from performing for years.
It was after Jiang’s downfall when Dong Wenhua slowly
re-appeared in front of the mass media.
Media critics said Dong Wenhua’s comeback not only
proves her innocence but also marks the end of the Politics and Law Committee and Jiang’s, “blood-debt group."
This also means that the army General Political Department
has openly declared to completely sever from the Jiang faction.
