Sexy Beijing – Chinese people’s English names

Sexy Beijing is a Danwei TV show about love, lust, youth culture and street life in China’s capital.

In this second episode — Lost in Translation — our heroine Su Fei goes around Beijing, asking Chinese people what their English names are, and why they need them.

Who said China is not a creative country?

The episode is also available at Danwei.TV, where there are links to other formats and download options. All Danwei TV shows are archived at Danwei.TV.

For a look at Westerners abusing Chinese and Chinese characters, have a look at Hanzi Smatter, where you can admire some of the most foolish Chinese characters ever to adorn human flesh.
