上頭姐妹 [shàng tóu jiě mèi ] and 甜寵 [tián chǒng]

Go Go Squid!

上頭姐妹 [shàng tóu jiě mèi ] n. Intoxicated sisters.

上頭 [shàng tóu] means “(of alcohol) to go to one’s head.” Intoxicated sisters refer to female fans who are so psyched about the sweet romantic scenes in Internet novels, idol dramas and online photos that they simply go bananas!

This slang term is made popular by the TV drama Go Go Squid! which took the country by storm in the summer of 2019. I gave up on the drama after watching a few video clips, because Li Xian’s character Han Shangyan has an annoying poker face and is too dominant in the relationship.

Go Go Squid! is one of those popular 甜寵 [tián chǒng] “sweet and pampering” idol dramas which are replete with sweet romantic scenes where the male lead would do anything for the female lead.

Jing Boran’s Reply

jing-boran

【Jing Boran lashed back at a fan who dissed his studio for poor photography skills: Don’t think so】On the evening of the 5th, a fan grumbled on her Weibo that Jing Boran’s studio took worse photos than an average person. Jing Boran surprisingly replied: “Then let me casually diss you too: Dont think so.” Then the fan changed her Weibo self-intro to “The woman who was dissed by Jing Boran.” Have the idols and fans of this term evolved to be so mischievous? [doge]
