The English subtitles ( I wish there were Chinese also )

0:45

I'm 17 years old. 17! So Young!

1:34

Tell us what your number 1 phrase for what the young Taiwanese kids are often using at the moment. What's number one?

1:41

"little three"

1:42

"little three"!!

1:44

"Little three!?"

1:46

I know what this means.

1:48

But can you use some Chinese to introduce to us what this phrase 'Little three' means?

1:53

"Little 3" is just...

1:56

haha, the third person. When 2 people get married, then have an affair.

2:01

Have an affair? Does it have to be that you're married?

2:04

Not necessarily, it could be when

2:06

amongst a boyfriend and girlfriend

2:08

and then there is this third person.

2:10

and then,

2:11

It's not very good. It's not a great word? and then,

2:12

It's not very good. It's not a great word?

2:14

but we use a cuter expression to talk about this.

2:17

I understand.

2:28

a bit cuter

2:40

and, can it be used for both men and women?

2:43

um, if it's a man,

2:45

it's called "old huang"

2:48

OK, this, this I've really never heard before. I've only heard of "little 3"

2:52

OK, so, there you go guys.

3:03

Really! It's really called "Little King?"

3:06

Yeah, Chloe just told it to me.

3:08

Really, OK, so if you're a lady,

3:24

OK, that's number 1!

3:28

OK, so what's number 2, Iona, what is your second phrase for what the kids are always using these days?

3:38

What! I don't understand. Yes, BJ四) -This, this I really haven't heard before.

3:45

It means "No explanation needed"

3:49

"No explanation needed." Then how do we use it?

3:54

So when you're chatting and you start speaking about something you don't want to talk about it, "No explanation needed." Then how do we use it?

3:54

So when you're chatting and you start speaking about something you don't want to talk about it,

3:57

or, everyone understands why (you don't want to talk about it),

3:59

and you want to say it in a humorous way

4:02

you say "BJ"

4:05

OK, "I don't want to go into it" OK, next time I don't wanna chat to you, or when whatever, I can just say...

4:09

BJ?

4:11

Polite? Is this polite?

4:13

You've gotta teach us whether these phrases are polite or not.

4:16

For example, we just spoke about "little 3". You said it was a bit

4:18

more polite right?

4:20

Then, is BJ polite or impolite? more polite right?

4:20

Then, is BJ polite or impolite?

4:23

It's considered polite
