“China’s real unemployment is beyond 10~20%.”, one of Chinese friends told me. She also believes China has already passed its prime time, and India will have its bright days in coming 10 years. China just do not want to be told what to do just like any other countries, I suppose.
She likes Japanese pop music since J-pop gives her energy. Chinese songs and entertainments enjoy too much negativity and do not give her kicks not make her happy. Alternatively, J-pop may be full of air-headed optimisms. I am not sure if these foreigners still like the Japanese pop music when they come to realize what they are singing about. There are always elements of attraction about unknowns. Of course the same unknowns can turn into unfounded hostility.
Any case, why some people make big deals out of something which really does not critically affect their life? There are far more important issues we must solve.
