2022 ISSUE 3
Lessons for Life Issue

In this issue, we investigate efforts to fill three vital gaps in China’s public education: on sex, death, and aesthetics. We also enter the world of UFO hunters; find out why young Chinese are giving up sugar; ask when domestic TV will get good female characters; talk to graffiti artists working with government; and more.

Lessons for Life
Chinese education is known for being academically rigorous, but what about learning outside the classroom? As the country pursues education reform, some voices in society also call for improving both children and adults’ knowledge about the important facts of life: sex and relationships, coming to terms with death, and developing good aesthetic tastes. In this issue’s cover story, we look at these initiatives and give China a report card from the “school of life.”
Feature Stories 主题故事
Close Encounters
Ufology was a little-known side effect of China’s reform era, a time when foreign cultural imports started a craze for all things extraterrestrial. Today, most UFO publications have shuttered and alien-investigators are niche hobbyists, but a booming sci-fi market and space exploration means people haven’t given up their dreams of finding the third kind.
Bitter Sweets
Sugar was once a rare treat in China, but syrupy milk tea is now sold in every major city, while diabetes and obesity are on the rise. As health-conscious consumers’ tastes sour, there’s a growing market for sugar-alternatives and sugar-free products, but can this really get China un-hooked from the sweet stuff?
Kaleidoscope 镜像中国
Most China
Inspired by the work of TWOC’s longtime collaborator Huang Ruide, TWOC is announcing a photo contest based upon the theme of Huang’s photo collection, “Most China,” which we’ve republished in part in this issue. From centuries-old folk culture to modern ingenuity, Huang’s photography captures the contrasts and extremes
in China’s grassroots. What do you feel most represents China?
Dragon’s Digest 三味书屋
Night Moves
In China’s wuxia novels, jianghu—the underworld of heroes and outlaws—is where the action takes place. In a humorous update on the archetypical martial arts novel, writer Hu Yuesheng transplants the jianghu’s quirky cast and its rigid codes of honor into two modern settings.
Group Think 群观
Everything Flies
Invented in the fourth century BCE, kites are a cultural emblem and a beloved form of recreation around China. But kite-flying today is growing more high-stakes, attracting competitive fliers from around the world to best one another on flying skill, kite size, and ambitious kite designs.
Pop Culture 星闻
Industrial Youths
With just two albums released in 20 years and an inactive Weibo account, Omnipotent Youth Society sounds like the antithesis of a millennial band. Yet the group of rockers from the industrial city of Shijiazhuang has achieved unlikely success among youths for their unique sound and prescient lyrics about the disconnect of modern life.
Gallery 水墨丹青
Written on the Walls
Started in the early 2000s on soon-to-be demolished buildings, graffiti has grown into a lucrative cultural industry in China. As artists gain commissions from governments and brands, and attract millions of followers online, has graffiti lost its counter-cultural roots?
On The Road 在路上
The Rough Side of Paradise
With balmy beaches and visa-free policies, Hainan is China’s best answer to a tropical paradise. But this island province also has a gritty history, hardscrabble fisheries, and shells of unfinished real estate. In this cross-island journey, our writer takes a beat-up motorcycle off the tourist trail to see another side of China’s southernmost province.

The Rouge Street Blues
Chinese literature in translation tends to feature the same cast of middle-aged, established authors. But Rouge Street, a new anthology of Shuang Xuetao’s novellas, bucks trends by presenting a 1980s-born author and his distinctive “Rust Belt” literature to an English-speaking audience.

Zoetrope 视听空间
Nü Perspectives
For many years now, Chinese film and TV has been littered with flat female characters. They are foils for the male
leads, objects for the audience to ogle, or “good” women motivated by pretty dresses and being a good mother, wife, or daughter. What is being done to add depth to women on screen?
