Speak like a REAL Chinese Mandarin Slang Swear Learning video learning resources IG: ngchinesehk Before as we explained in previous video, when people say interesting in Chinese, local people will not use 很有意思hěn yǒu yì si, because it sounds boring, formal, not native either. Instead, if someone or something can wake our curiosity up, we say: 有趣的yǒu qù de. If you think someone has interesting soul, you can say: 有趣的灵魂yǒu qù de líng hún. One of the heated poems among young people today is: 好看的皮囊千篇一律hǎo kàn de pí náng qiān piān yí lǜ 有趣的灵魂万里挑一yǒu qù de líng hún wàn lǐ tiāo yī 好看的皮囊hǎo kàn de pí náng is a reference of good looking or pretty faces, 千篇一 律qiān piān yí lǜ is an idiom, means almost everyone/everything looks the same, no uniqueness. 有趣的灵魂yǒu qù de líng hún, intersting soul, 万里挑一wàn lǐ tiāo yī is also an Chinese idiom, means pick one from ten thousand, we use this to describe something that is really hard to find. 好看的皮囊千篇一律hǎo kàn de pí náng qiān piān yí lǜ 有趣的灵魂万里挑一yǒu qù de líng hún wàn lǐ tiāo yī is used as a reference of: pretty faces could be found everywhere but interesting soul is really hard to meet.
