China TV grows racy, and gets a chaperon
The show, “If You Are the One,” is the most-talked-about show in China. Bright young men and women court each other on stage to pop music and audience applause.
Mixed into the provacative banter are trenchant social issues that urban Chinese from their 20s to 40s grapple with, if not always so publicly: living together before marriage, the unabashed pursuit of wealth or the government’s one-child policy.
“Through this show, you can tell what China is thinking about and chasing after,” said Mr. Wang, a veteran television producer.
