The gaps between rich and poor, urban and rural, even young and old are perhaps nowhere more prevalent than in the world of dating. Tradition remains, but the modern world has its part to play in the peculiar realm of courting in the Middle Kingdom. Those in rural areas still rely on the grace and connections of a professional matchmaker caused in no small part by the country’s gender imbalance. Lastly, we look at the pick-up artists of China—and how their Chinese proponents are adding a Chinese flavor to this distasteful dish.

 Also this issue, we’ve got the surprisingly arduous journey of golf in China, how it failed and how it might succeed once again with golf in the Olympics. In addition, we also look at the nation’s struggles with burgeoning Ponzi schemes that are bred from mistrust and lead many down dark paths. Our last feature takes on a slightly more upbeat subject: sexy lingerie; China has long been enthralled to foreign manufacturers in this arena, but the heart of manufacturing and a centuries-old piece of underwear might be bringing naughty knickers back home.

 In this edition, literature lovers will find a new wuxia story from an up and coming female writer as well as an interview with Hans Christian Andersen Award winner Cao Wenxuan. We’ve also got some tasty reviews of China’s recent mer-film spectacular and a look into Mai Jia’s Decoded. All that and more are just a click away.


数不清的婚恋网站和交友APP, 千奇百怪的“把妹学”“女德班”, 供不应求的古老职业“媒人”……所有这些, 都服务于当今年轻人“找对象”这件大事










显示全部目 录

Road to Romance
Online or matchmaker, urban or rural, marriage or the art of hooking up—dating in China today presents all manner of options, but where you live, what you want, and how much money you have will dominate your dating life
Course Correction
Despite all the bans, unofficial disapproval, and general unpleasantness surrounding the game, golf is trying its level best to compete in the leisure market. Will it be another casualty of the anti-corruption campaign or will its inclusion in the Olympics birth a Chinese golf star?
Pyramid Pains
An untrustworthy atmosphere regarding lending in China has led to the prevalence of Ponzi schemes on a frankly fantastical scale; authorities are pressed with what to do to stop these pyramid posers and how to restore trust in investing
Kingdom of Lingerie
From the dudou of antiquity to the garters of today, China has had some interesting input on the sexy underwear front, but questions remain as to how innovative designs and manufacturing capital of the planet will impact the nethers of the nation
The World on Rice Paper
Using simplistic elements and the space of the gallery, Wang Lizhou brings traditional Chinese paintings into the realm of modern installation art with rice paper on the ceiling and rocks on the floor
On the Road
Taiyuan Endures
Taiyuan seems at first glance to be yet another one of the typical smog-laden third-tier city that dot northern China, but a glimpse of its history and temples reveals it was the fulcrum for massive political and cultural change
Beams Up
The Geijia people of Matang Village aren’t one of China’s 56 officially-recognized ethnic minorities, but that doesn’t make their rituals any less significant; learn more about their curious customs and watch as they construct a wooden house from the ground up
Dragon’s Digest
A fiery hatred burns in the breast of a 14-year-old boy, but his wizened old master refuses to let him quench his desires. Instead he must work on fashioning a deadly bow in this short story from an up-and-coming female wuxia writer.
Made in China
Rise and Fall of the Night Soil King of Beijing
Shi Chuanxiang made his living shoveling excrement, yet in a curious twist of fate he became one of the most respected workers in all of China. After meeting Liu Shaoqi, however, he became stained—not with what he shoveled, but by politics.
The Power of Pain and Sorrow
Cao Wenxuan recently became the first Chinese to win the coveted Hans Christian Andersen Award, and he sat down with TWOC to discuss the state of Chinese literature, why you shouldn’t talk down to children, and the universal themes of childhood
Group Think
How They Roll
Roller skating has been in China for a few decades, but roller derby is rather new. Follow a plucky band of Beijing upstarts as they compete in Thailand’s first ever international roller-derby bout as the sport grabs a foothold in the Middle Kingdom.
The Mermaid
Stephen Chow is among China’s favorite directors and has accrued a lot of goodwill among the public. His latest film, The Mermaid, smashed box office records—but how well does this splashy tale of love, revenge, and merpeople stand up to critical scrutiny? Surprisingly well.
