Internet Slang

鎖場 [suǒ chǎng]

鎖場 [suǒ chǎng] v. To Lock the auditorium. This Internet slang term describes the phenomenon that ardent fans purchase one to two movie tickets for each movie auditorium where their idols’ movie is scheduled to be screened, in order to give theatrical exhibitors the false impression that their idols’ movies are very popular so that the movie would be screened at more movie theaters.

打Call [dǎ call] v. To cheer [for someone to show support]. This Internet slang term originated from Wotagei or otagei, which refers to a type of dancing and cheering gestures performed by wota, fans of Japanese idol singers (and thus seen as Akiba-kei), involving jumping, clapping, arm-waving and chanting slogans.

Louis Koo Hates Makeup

Louis Koo: At that time we were shooting [Cold Blood Warm Heart] day after day, night after night. How come your skin wouldn’t get lighter? I rarely wore makeup when I was filming. Why did I rarely wear makeup? Because I loathe putting on makeup! When you go home for a one- or two-hour break, what are you going to do, removing the makeup, taking a shower, or getting some sleep? Pick one. You were so worn out…why do you want to remove the makeup? Get some zzz’s! There is only one way to get away with wearing makeup—get tanned!

Alicia Keys quitted makeup in May last year, but under duress, most female artists still dare not go bare. I don’t really think wearing makeup is a way of showing respect. It is just a way of catering to the male-dominated aesthetic culture: Young, fair-skinned, ageless…The funny thing is that Wallace Chung is touted for his flawless skin partly because he lives many Chinese women’s dream. Do we fans sexually objectify Wallace as many men sexually objectify women? [允悲] There seems to be a fine line between admiring beauty and obsessing over appearance…

The obsession over appearance has a huge impact on me. I too swoon over people who max out the cute-o-meter. Sometimes I caught myself rating people’s appearance in my mind…[嘘] Hopefully one day I will be less scared of getting old or ugly and less judgmental of a plain Jane. [小黄人剪刀手]
