These Chinese dating show cultural studies are back. In this episode, I bring in guest Linda to help me with the mandarin and Chinese cultural analysis. After all, it's impossible to understand a language without understanding a culture. This will be a very in-depth and awesome study of dating culture in the East and the West. For those of you who watch these dating show reviews to get a lot of educational talks, this video will be for you. Big shoutout to Linda for joining. For those of you watching, make sure to answer the "ask the audience" questions. Linda and I disagree on so many things ;)
