In Douyin you can see many different personalities, and none are related to politics. People like it because it is short and fun. (02:12-02:22).ZU TIEIXONG - Douyin is very interesting. At the beginning, it was only for young people. But since a few years ago, it has become very popular for everyone. It is very diverse. (02:22-02:44).YOU BI - The US is afraid of Chinese culture spreading in the country and of its influence. Chinese students are everywhere.

FANG ZHENJIE - In China we have a saying: we must concentrate on one thing, what we do, if you do many things at the same time it is not professional. It is like a factory. (05:01-05:14).
