After he handed over 10,000 Hong Kong dollars, he knew that he could not return to China or come to Taiwan, so he had to move to Japan and died of depression. Considering that Ge Tan used to serve in the party-state, and his subsequent vote for the Communist Party was very unsuccessful, the government of the Republic of China still allowed his coffin to be moved back to Taipei for burial. Compared with Ge Tan, his old rival who died overseas in 1958, Ding Jingchen's later years were much happier.
As an "economic traitor", Ding Jingchen knew that he could join the Kuomintang through bribes, but the Communist Party members who were photo color correction services committed to "overthrowing the old society and creating a new order" could not be bribed. So he arranged for his family to move to Taiwan very early, including his son Ding Weinong and grandson Ding Shanxi. Ding Shanxi was less than 10 years old when he won the Anti-Japanese War, and he was only 14 years old when he came to Taiwan. Naturally, he did not need to bear the crimes of his grandfather or father's "economic traitor" during the Japanese occupation of Qingdao.
However, since his childhood, Ding Shanxi received the national education of the North China Political Affairs Committee and the Wang Jingwei regime in the occupied area, and also indirectly enjoyed the prosperity and wealth that his grandfather obtained from the Japanese army when he was the manager of Dafu Bank. Of course, he could claim that Ding Jingchen was an underground anti-Japanese worker on the grounds that his grandfather assisted Li Xianliang at the end of the Anti-Japanese War, and that he had achieved the status of a victorious nation by virtue of his Chinese nationality and blood, but whether he really regarded himself as a winner in his heart? Still very suspicious.
