Use Current Events to Learn Chinese
Recently, a popular Chinese online drama Go Princess Go was asked to take off from the web by SARFT (short for The State Administration of Radio Film and Television of China), which was a real pity for fans.
This drama tells a story of a modern boy who accidently travelling to the ancient and discovering that he becomes the Crown Princess of the time who gets promoted smoothly all the way to be the ‘Empress Dowager’ afterwards. It’s just light-hearted and entertaining. Although there are some mind-blowing moments in this drama, it does become a major hit right now.
But Go Princess Go was ridiculed as too filthy by audiences quite often because of the large scales. And that is the main reason why it was taken off by the SARFT request.
In addition to Go Princess Go, some other hot online dramas, including The Lost Tomb and Criminal Minds, were all requested to be taken off from the web for a negative impact that violence and sex in this stories may bring to the society.
We have to say, SARFT has become the strongest ‘stain remover’ in Chinese filmdom.
