Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

If you ask a Chinese friend what movie is popular in China recently, they will definitely say, “Jia Ling’s ‘Yolo (You Only Live Once)’.” For this movie, the director and actress Jia Ling lost 50 kilograms, but she also earned 2.7 billion RMB because of this movie. What kind of movie is this? Why is it so popular, and why do people like it so much? Today, let’s talk about it together.

What story does this movie tell? Jia Ling plays the female protagonist, a chubby woman. After graduating from university, she worked for a short time and then decided to go back home, where she stayed for ten years without a job. She spent each day idling away, meaning she had nothing to do and didn’t know what to do. Her relationship with her family worsened over time, and one day, she even argued and fought with her sister. After that, she decided to leave home. Because she was chubby, people always laughed at her. One day, she got to know boxing as a sport, and gradually, she started to like it. She wanted to participate in boxing matches, but she was too fat, so she spent a year losing 50 kilograms. In the end, did she win the boxing match? No, she lost. But during the year preparing for the match, she found the meaning of life, began to enjoy the challenges of life, and gained courage.

Many people were deeply moved after watching the movie, crying while watching it in the cinema. Some said, “After watching this movie, I have the courage to live again.” Others said, “After watching the movie, I understand that life only comes once, and if there’s something you want to do, you must do it.”

People also saw Jia Ling losing 50 kilograms for the movie, finding it unbelievable and thinking she was amazing. Jia Ling used to be chubby, and people were used to seeing her that way. Now, she is slim and healthy, with lots of muscles, and everyone thinks she is very beautiful. Some people said they hated this movie because it made people feel that only thin women are beautiful. But Jia Ling said, “This is not a movie about losing weight; it’s a movie about self-discovery and growth.”

  1. Thanks so much for this; I had never heard of this film but now after listening to your podcast I have booked to see it at my local cinema this week, with my Chinese friend. Really useful episode and great vocabulary and perfect speed for my level of Chinese. Many thanks from a Chinese learner in England! 🙂
