Li Leyou is 17. She has a slender (mảnh khảnh, mảnh dẻ, thon thả), oval face (mặt trái xoan) with hair down to her shoulders. About to finish high school in rural Yunnan, in southwestern China, Li’s favorite subject is biology (sinh học). She loves detective novels (tiểu thuyết trinh thám) and dreams of being a forensic (pháp y) scientist.
At 23, Cui Jin recently dyed his short hair blonde, and habitually posts his trendy outfits on social media. From Dalian, the second-largest city in the northeastern Liaoning province, he runs his own online clothes store, helps out at his mother’s noodle shop, and aspires to become an influencer (người có ảnh hưởng).
Their worlds are far more distant than the 3,600 kilometers that separate them: in culture, wealth, and spirit. But seven years ago, they switched lives for one month.
And on television, all of China watched the drama unfold as the duo navigated new homes, schools, and friends.
Li and Cui were among four children featured in season 11 of the reality show “X-Change.” Considered the “forerunner of Chinese mainland TV,” the show offered urban and rural students the chance to experience each other’s lives over the course of one month.
“X-Change” premiered in 2006 until it was canceled in 2018 after 18 seasons. Despite the hype and popularity it garnered across the country, the show was also accused of perpetuating (làm tồn tại mãi, duy trì) stereotypes and exaggerating (thổi phồng) the truth, as some critics noted online, “to propel urban children to fame to the severe detriment of their rural counterparts.”
For Li and Cui, however, transcending the country’s yawning urban-rural divide couldn’t have been more different. Ultimately, that one month helped shape the rest of their lives.
Li, who lost her mother as an infant, not only understood the bliss of maternal love, but now also dreams of the bigger world outside Yunnan. Cui, the teenage rebel (nổi loạn) since his parents’ divorce, spent most of his month reconnecting with his father, and now has a new outlook on life.
