Alice’s cousin and Frank’s daughter. Melanie marries a white man and the whole Pung family calls him the “Round Red-Haired Demon” to Melanie’s face, except for Frank, who loves his son-in-law like his own. Of course, Kien disapproves of Melanie’s marriage, and Alice isn’t allowed to go to the ceremony; Kien fears that Alice will also one day marry a “white ghost,” which explains why she so deeply disapproves of Michael.
