Oprah at USC and China's Oprahs   

read on the web | skip to the calendar



Congratulations to the US-China studies graduates across the USC campus today! From agricultural policy and trade to urban planning, our students examine US-China links. We're proud of what they've already achieved and look forward to what they'll accomplish in the future.

Oprah Winfrey delivered the commencement address for the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism today. Want to watch? Please go to:https://annenberg.usc.edu/commencement

Oprah's show never aired in China, but she's such an iconic figure that many Western journalists have invoked her name when talking about Chinese talk show hosts. For example:

Yang Lan 杨澜

Hung Huang 洪晃

Jin Xing 金星

 James MacDonald of CNN described Chen Luyu 陈鲁豫 as "China's Oprah" in 2007. According to MacDonald, Chen was a devoted fan of the American host after seeing the show during a visit to the U.S. Her long-running show, "A Date with Luyu," was modelled after Oprah's. Oprah and Luyu even managed a simulcast(watch a clip on YouTube). In 2010, Chen's guests included then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner.

Yang Lan 杨澜 was called "China's Oprah Winfrey" by The Telegraph(2009), NPR(2010), and Marie Claire(2011). She started hosting television programs right out of college, earned a masters at Columbia in the 1990s and then launched her own television talk show on Hong Kong-based Phoenix Satellite Television. She's since encountered business ups and downs, but has remained a popular host, writer and product spokesperson.

Forbes correspondent Robyn Meredith called Hung Huang 洪晃 "China's answer to Oprah Winfrey," noting that Hung is a blogger, magazine publisher, author of an autobiography, and hosted a talk show(2008). Her mother translated for Mao Zedong and Hung was educated at Vassar. In 2015, she spoke at USC's Shanghai Global Conference.

The Hollywood Reporter(2016), BBC(2018)and Reuters(2018)have all called Jin Xing 金星, "the Oprah of China." Jin is a Korean Chinese. She was a dancer in an army art troupe, rising to the rank of colonel. She ran a private dance troupe and became a popular judge on a tv dance contest show. Her talk show draws 100 million viewers a week. Jin also happens to be transgender.

In 2004, Oprah Winfrey's Book Club endorsed Pearl Buck's 1931 best sellerThe Good Earth arguing in true Oprah-fashion, "this is a novel that reminds its readers to fight for the things that matter most."

China's economic rise has touched Oprah.  In 2006, she purchased the Gustav Klimt painting "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II" for $88 million. Three months ago, shesold it to an unidentified Chinese buyer for $150 million


Our April conference "Finding Solutions" attracted a large and diverse audience. Our focus was on what businesses, non-profits and individuals were doing to address some of China's most pressing issues. Video of the conference presentations is now available.(Subscribe to our YouTube channel to get all of our videos as soon as they are available.)can now watch the conference presentations.

Our recent USCI programs include discussion of controls on social media in China and two book talks on William Overholt's China's Crisis of Success and Brett Sheehan's Industrial Eden. We have short interviews with those authors, but also withTeng Jimeng, a Chinese professor specializing in American pop culture. He's translated an important biography of Bob Dylan. Dylan was influential in China, even before receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature. Lyrics of his songs have been translated into an eight volume series. Those books were sold in packages reminescent of potato chip bags. Click here to see these interviews.

About the Film
Xiang is hard-working, running a small sesame oil business. Her husband is lazy and a drunk; her son is mentally handicapped. When Japanese investors provide capital to expand Xiang's business, she has the wealth to raise her social standing and buy a wife for her son, Dunzi. When money and a forceful personality fail to bend others to her will, including daughter-in-law Huanhuan, Xiang must find another way to tranquility.


About the Director

Oprah at USC and China

Oprah at USC and China

Xie Fei was born in Yan'an in 1937 and graduated from the Beijing Film Academy in the 1960s. Xie has directed nine films during his long career, all of which have been showered with acclaim, both at home and from abroad. His movie Black Snow won the Silver Bear Award for personal achievement at the Berlin Film Festival in 1989, where he later won the Golden Bear Award for Woman Sesame Oil Maker in 1992. Three years later his touching movie A Mongolian Tale won Best Director at the Montreal Film Festival. Most of Xie's films have been adapted from famous Chinese novels, helping to offer a deeper insight into Chinese history and culture. The movies focus on the lives of ordinary people who struggle in vain to come to terms with the limitations imposed by the society they live in. Xie was a visiting scholar at USC 1988-1989.
