According to the latest information, China’s Quang Dien approved the content of permanently banning the broadcast of romantic movies in the afternoon session on January 7, 2022.
Specifically, the General Administration of Promotion and Broadcasting of China (Quang Dien), during a meeting in Beijing, agreed on the content of permanently banning the broadcasting of romantic movies in this country. According to the sharing in the meeting, the government is concerned about a series of scandals in the Chinese showbiz world in 2021, so it is necessary to tighten the operation of this entertainment industry.
As such, all previously aired passion dramas will be promptly removed. Movies that are waiting to be screened or are in the process of completing post-production or recording will also be screened permanently, including: Left shoulder with You (Vuong An Vu – Pham Thua Thua), Cat Tinh Cao Chieu (Vuong An Vu – Pham Thua Thua). Truong Lang Hac – Trach Tieu Van), Phong Hoa Luu Kim (Dan Kien Thu – Tran Triet Vien)…
However, there is a question as to whether some films are “passionate in disguise” – emphasizing fraternity, completely cutting out scenes that go deep into emotions, whether there is still a “door”. Because before that, in 2020, Quang Dien also once “tightened” the regulations for “true” passion movies, causing many crews to “cook and cut” their brainchild into depicting brotherly love. Brothers and friends aim to pass censorship to be able to broadcast, such as: Tran Tinh Lenh (Tieu Chien – Vuong Nhat Bac), Son Ha Lenh (Cung Tuan – Truong Triet Han) …
And is there any “door” for the way of “exporting Chinese-language love movies” to the film market of other countries? Because the money that investors have poured into passion projects that have not yet been aired, it will be difficult to recover, whether they will sit still and wait for their money to evaporate.
In the past few years, since the “true” passion film Thuong An, starring Hoang Canh Du and Hua Wei Chau, has created a fever throughout Asia, aiming to compete with “specialties of passionate movies. ” of Thailand, pushing the names of the two male leads to become famous stars. Many teams of young Chinese male artists have followed this famous path, and then gradually form an “ugly path” for the vast majority of actors who use their strength to follow the profession. Realizing that “true passion” was closed in 2020, the crew turned to “disguised passion”. This move by Quang Dien is also a blow to “clean up” the mess that has existed for a long time in the country’s film industry.
