The Spring Festival is approaching, and recently, CCTV published a monkey mascot for the 2016 Gala, it was a cute little monkey named Kang Kang.


“康康”有着圆圆的眼睛,鼓鼓的腮帮,看上去机灵活泼。猴脸用了黄、绿、红三种颜色,体现出浓浓的中国风,整个就像是一幅中国传统水墨画。

Kang Kang has a pair of round eyes, bulging cheeks, looking smart and lively. Yellow, green and red are painted on the face so that chinoiserie is fully shown, and the whole face is like a Chinese traditional ink and wash painting.


“康康”,在中文里是“健康”的意思。也有网友把它叫做“猴赛雷”,这是广东话“好厉害”的谐音,又正好有一个“猴”字,所以这个名字也受到了很多人的欢迎

‘Kang Kang’ means 'healthy' in Chinese. There are also netizens calling this monkey ‘hou sai lei’ as a nickname, which sounds very similar to ‘hao li hai’ (means awesome) in Cantonese. And it happens to have a ‘hou’ in this nickname, making it gain popularity as well.


但是官方3D版的“康康”却没有得到大家的喜爱,很多人都评价说“丑哭了”。

Netizens even feel hard to not say something, let's check out their masterpieces.
