Huh, once again, 字幕 not 字母, peace. :-)

[EDITOR'S NOTE (JDM): Corrected. Thanks.]

Great job! I love this show and recommended it to lots of friends. Thanks Danwei and lovely Su Fei!

P.S. There is one typo in the subtitle at 03:40. The photographer said 今年拍了”上百对“ not “三百对”. So it should be "more than 100 couples" instead!

And, I believe the photographer said 上百对儿 not 三百对儿, but I'm not so sure, whatever. :-)

This reminds me once again what I think about the concept of marriage. Though not opposed to the concept of "eternal matrimony", I feel it is a contrived notion to begin with. Having said that, I felt the episode was delightful, as always. I do look forward to meeting the seemingly brilliant and delightfully (perhaps) single Su Fei find bliss, matrimonial or otherwise, that she deserves in the not so distance future.




the worst part of getting married was taking those damn pictures

Brilliant as always. And my god, Bela Fleck and Sexy Beijing... it's like... like... sex and banjos... two of my favourite things.

Not at the same time, of course. It always gets ruined because it's impossible not to break into duelin'... and well, that generally kills the mood.

This sponsorship of certain videos and such really obscures the line between what is news and events and what is advertising placement.

[EDITOR'S NOTE (JG): We are making the videos for you, for free.

However, we also need to eat. Hence the advertising.

What is the difference between advertising on our videos and advertising on newspapers and television?]

Very cool vid....

In City Weekend this month there is an interview with Bela Fleck and mention of a film crew doing a documentary-type thing with him re: his time touring in China, etc. Is Danwei or Goldmines involved in this?

clap clap clap! I loved this one! and I love your bath suit Su Fei ;)

Famously fabulous! When will the interview with Bela Fleck be up? Can't wait.

Classic Danwei posts
+ Korean history doesn't fly on Chinese TV screens (2007.09): SARFT puts the kibbosh on Korean historical dramas.
+ Religion and government in an uneasy mix (2008.03): Phoenix Weekly (凤凰周刊) article from October, 2007, on government influence on religious practice in Tibet.
+ David Moser on Mao impersonators (2004.10): I first became aware of this phenomenon in 1992 when I turned on a Beijing TV variety show and was jolted by the sight of "Mao Zedong" and "Zhou Enlai" playing a game of ping pong. They both gave short, rousing speeches, and then were reverently interviewed by the emcee, who thanked them profusely for taking time off from their governmental duties to appear on the show.
