dc.descriptionThis is one of hundreds of 60-second radio spots created by the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) for Kansas Public Radio (KPR). The purpose of this outreach program is to introduce the people of Kansas to the culture and current issues of East Asia.
dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: They're tasty. They're popular. And they're a marketing nightmare. China's well-loved goubuli steamed buns are the pride of Tianjin, but their name translates literally to "a dog would ignore it." According to legend, the buns were invented by a poor village boy nicknamed gouzi, or puppy, who did not speak to his customers. Worried that foreigners will turn up their noses at this unfortunately named delicacy, the Tianjin Goubuli Group Corporation has tweaked the 150-year-old name to "Go Believe," a perplexing sort-of transliteration of the Chinese sound. The company says the buns will now be "better understood and trusted." Perhaps. Or perhaps as with American hot dogs, "Go Believe" bun eaters are being encouraged to simply go on faith. #ceas #china #greene #vonholten
