‘Chinese-Style’ – Business Insider

November 2, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The term “Chinese style” became popular about eight years ago thanks to a television series called “Chinese Style Divorce” which depicted how couples were entangled in three kinds of betrayals: mental betrayal, physical betrayal or mental/physical betrayal, the United Daily reported.

“All these bad habits reflect the special sociological transformation China is undergoing,” pointed out Xinhua News.

However, Xia Xueluan, professor of sociology at Peking University believes that “The fact that Chinese-style phenomena are amplified in the Internet sphere is a good thing. This has the effect of alerting the authorities as well as the public. This self-examination by ridiculing ourselves embodies our awakening cultural consciousness.”
