Director Statement

The United States is a multicultural and multiracial country. Many cultures blended and gave rise to a new vitality. As an international student in SCAD, I would love to introduce a new culture from the other side of the ocean. Recently, there is a word very popular in China, Aquaman, which is not the Aquaman in DC Comics. Aquaman originally means the king of the sea. In China, people use it to describe people who have an affair with many people at the same time. And those who have been cheated are called Aquaman's fish. This culture has become very complete and systematic in China. Many young people suffer from this abnormal love relationship. Many young people's feelings are deceived. I want to take this opportunity to pass on this culture to the United States, hoping to alert people to this bad culture, which is the reason that I choose this project. Everyone has experienced growth, and everyone is growing. In the process of growing up, a new culture is also constantly impacting people's world outlook. How to face growth is what this project wants to tell people.
