 The identity of a woman from a Southwest China's village, whose teenage portrait appeared on the one renminbi note for a decade, has been made public, apparently for the first time. 

The woman surnamed Shi, 57, belongs to the Dong ethnic minority and was considered one of the most beautiful girls in her village. Her portrait, taken when she was 16, appeared on the banknote between 1987 and 1997.

Shi discovered her photo was on the renminbi eight years ago, but she never made it publicly known. Pear Video released a video on Sunday identifying the woman.

"This is a violation of her personal privacy. She should apply for state compensation," was a typical comment from netizens.
