Born in 1982 in Shanghai, Han Han is a noted post-80s Chinese writer and a professional rally driver. A high school dropout, Han wrote his first novel, Triple Door in 1999, based on his personnel experience at school. The book became a bestseller in China and has now sold more than 1.9 million copies. Han has also written several other novels, including "Like a Speeding Youth", "Riot in Chang'an City", "A Fortress", "Glory Days", "His Kingdom", and "1988, I Want to Talk with the World". A film based on "His Kingdom" has started shooting, while another two films based on "Riot in Chang'an City" and "Glory Days" will go into production soon.

Han writes less since he embarked on his new career as a professional rally driver, but he still blogs on current affairs. Some of his sharp commentaries have attracted a great number of readers and triggered heated debates. Han's personal blog is the most popular in China, recording more than 500 million clicks. As a writer with incisive, original thoughts and a distinctive personality, Han is widely regarded as the leading figure of the post-80s generation. He was ranked 2nd in the Times Magazine's 2010 list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
