Reading for details

1. What features does Ling have?

Ling behaves like an actual human social media star. She attends fashion events, promotes designer clothes and brands, and shares her life on Sina Weibo.

Unlike human influencers who will get old, or may become involved in some sort of scandal (丑闻), digital influencers are young, flexible, manageable and controllable.

2. What influence does Ling have on Chinese culture?

Ling helps promote Chinese culture on social media.

“I love traditional Chinese culture, especially Peking Opera, calligraphy (书法) and tai chi. I hope that I can interpret (阐释) these art forms in my own way on the stage,” Ling posted on her weibo account on Nov 22.

Ling herself is the best illustration of her love for Chinese traditional culture.

Her name, Ling, comes from the feathered headdress worn in Peking Opera. Her voice in the talent show follows the school of the late Peking Opera master Mei Lanfang. And her face is even designed to look good while wearing Peking Opera makeup.

3. What does Chen say about virtual idols?

Chen Zhe believes that the rise of virtual influencers will bring challenges and opportunities. On the one hand, they have great advantages like long-lasting youth and being manageable. On the other, the market needs more localized virtual influencers whose content design is tailored (专门制作) to connect with Chinese people and more modes of commercial collaboration (协作) need to be explored.

Virtual idols are having increasing impacts.
