Recently, the term "bai lan " or “let it rot” has become popular among young people in China. Prior to this trend, it was “tang ping” or “lying flat.”
On the Chinese social media platform Weibo, topics related to "bai lan" have generated hundreds of millions of reads and discussions since March 2022.
Frustrated by the growing uncertainty and lack of economic opportunities, young Chinese are resorting to this new buzzword, bai lan, to express their attitude toward life.
It means voluntarily giving up the pursuit of life goals because they realize that they are simply unattainable. "Someone has to be a loser. Why not me?" It has become the iconic slogan of the "waste" group. Similar Chinese expressions include "to smash a cracked pot"or "dead pigs are not afraid of boiling water."
