By the Chinese government’s ‘Overseas Satellite TV Management Regulations,’ overseas TV channels are, in principle, not allowed to broadcast to Chinese citizens, and YouTube viewing is also prohibited.

Accordingly, young Chinese people aged 20-25 who are sensitive to trends and interested in overseas content and Korean Wave culture actively use China’s own online video platform similar to YouTube.
