Pulling the Ponytails of Korean, Japanese, and Chinese Girls

An Asian girl with a ponytail.


At time of translation, this was the #1 most popular microblog post of the past 24 hours on popular Chinese social network Sina Weibo…

From Sina Weibo:

@别过来你胖到我了: In Korea, when a boy pulls the hairband off a girl’s ponytail from behind, the girl will say: What are you so childish, oppa, give it back!” In Japan, when a boy pulls the hairband off a girl’s ponytail, the girl will say: “Does this hairstyle look bad to you? I’ll change my hairstyle then.” In China, when a boy pulls the hairband off a girl’s ponytail, the girl will say: “Motherfucker, do you want to fucking die? You stand right where you are and I guarantee I won’t beat you to death!”

From Sina Weibo:


The first boy who pulled off a hairband is Daniel Wu, the second one is Wang Sicong [a fu er dai, the son of Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin], and the third one was Guo Degang?


Kimchi girl, sakura girl, and Heavenly Kingdom man. [呵呵]


Soft kimchi girl, cute Nippon girl, and Heavenly Kingdom manly woman.


Pull off? Getting a rubber band/hairband off is really hard! My hand will have just barely touched her head and a slap is already coming my way! “Who said you could touch my hairdo?!”


What is this about guys who play football being handsome or guys who play basketball being handsome, that’s all bullshit. As long as you’re handsome, you can can TM play marbles and still be handsome, while those who are ugly can play golf and still look like they’re shoveling shit. What is this about girls who are gentle being charming or girls who don’t wear makeup being pure and refreshing, that’s all bullshit. As long as you’re pretty, you TM can sell tofu and still be called the Xi Shi of Tofu, while those who are ugly can be playing the violin and still look like they’re having a seizure. I TM see through/have had enough of this world.


But often with the third kind, the guy will actually like her even more and insist on pulling her hair tie off, and the more he is beaten/slapped, the happier he is. [思考]


When I was in primary school, I really did beat up a boy for this, then in shame and resentment, he said: “if you have the guts, don’t leave after school!”, then after school, I beat him up one more time. [呵呵]


Actually, it doesn’t matter if it is China, Japan, or Korea… how [the girl] responds depends on the boy’s face [looks].


If it is a handsome: Oh you’re so annoying, you’re so bad, give it back [in a flirtatious whiny voice]. [呵呵] If it is an ugly cunt: What are you doing? What’s wrong with you? I’m going to beat you to death. [拜拜]


Just goes to show that women in China have higher social status than the women in Korea and Japan.

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
