节目介绍:Welcome to our show, 《Hong Kong Brief》! Today, we’re diving into some intriguing stories that are making waves across Hong Kong and beyond. First up, Hong Kong students are finding it increasingly difficult to distinguish real job opportunities from scams. In May alone, nearly 350 cases of employment fraud were reported, marking a 60% rise from the previous month. Lawmakers are urging students to be vigilant, especially when job listings promise high salaries with no experience required. Always check company addresses and be cautious if asked for a deposit before starting a job.

Next, we turn our attention to Beijing’s iconic Great Wall Hotel, once a beacon of luxury and a stopover for celebrities like Ronald Reagan and Jay Chou. Unfortunately, the hotel has fallen into disrepair and has been closed since late last year. The decline reflects a broader trend in China’s hotel industry, where increased competition and a surplus of new luxury hotels have driven prices down. It’s a stark reminder of how quickly fortunes can change in the hospitality sector.

Finally, let’s delve into the rich yet controversial history of the famous Chinese folktale, ‘Legend of the White Snake.’ This story has been used for centuries to depict women negatively, portraying them as treacherous and dangerous. Though newer versions have softened the characters, the tale’s ending always sees the female snake spirit imprisoned. Originating during the Tang dynasty and gaining popularity in the Qing dynasty, this folktale continues to spark discussions about gender stereotypes in Chinese culture. Please stay tuned for the detailed coverage of these stories and more.
