DNA Studio by Weiting Zhang

DNA Studio



A little Asian boy with a basketball dream is despised by his mother because of his poor grades and plain appearance. Envious of the parents of beautiful, high-achieving white-skinned girls, the mother changes the boy’s skin color and gender through a DNA studio, which can alter children’s genes, in the hopes that they can be elevated to another social class. However, the genetically modified boy still wants to be his original real self. At the same time, he hopes that his mother can also be herself.
