The saddest part? The 21-year-old is doing it for an ex-boyfriend. She told Shanghai Daily, "I love him very much. That's why I always followed his opinions. I don't want to lose him." She also said, "I'm not only doing it for my ex-boyfriend but for myself. I am a psychologically weak person. I want to do something to challenge myself and build a strong personality through it."
