The year of 2012 has just passed, and when we have a review, one of those that impressed us most might be the catchword -屌丝 (diǎo sī) .
This catchword is originated from a Chinese BBS for Chinese soccer player Li yi, and his fans are called “yisi” complained about their jobs and lives frequently, gradually they are given the name – "屌丝" . Soon after, this word prevails over both internet and real life.
“diaosi” refers to the single, young men who have plain looks without enough earnings, who have slim hopes for working promotion, for they don’t have good family background. Nowadays in China, more and more young people tend to self-mock with the label of “diaosi”.
