In recent years, Chinese material wealth have been growing continuously,but the spiritual life is markedly emptiness; these can be seen in daily life from many aspects, and one of them is the prevalence of "brain damage drama. Nearly two years, the domestic love dramas have swept the society as a whole and have been pursued by many people; most of this kind of play is mental collapse,and characters and life in these plays are wonderful, separating from real life;people who watch them will have daydream and deep set among them.

This kind of TV shows, whether fix true, crossing, city or other, have to follow a few large formats: 1. Male handsome female beauty, besides that female has slightly disadvantage, each ofthem is beauty, rich, but the male loves wild flowers and ignore the elegant beautiful lady withwisdom, attracting to the simple lady, or quarreling with her, or becoming one of her umbrellas.2. Love affairs, the female has been surrounded by stars and all kinds of cute guys have rich emotional entanglements.3.No cerebra, compared with seeing mental play, for young people whohave to work hard every day, have high life pressure and need to relax, “brain damage show”like instant meal is the best choice.4. The illusion of space, people can also make a princess or queenream.

A fix true fantasy drama "the Journey of the flower" has been showed recently including Mary Sue.The word "Mary Sue" is fiction circles abroad, which means making up a leading role in the real drama who is unreal;the protagonist is often very good and very powerful, and hassentiment entanglements, ambiguity, peach blossoms with other characters in the true story.Now this word used in the this play is appropriate.The protagonist is innocent and lovely, outgoingand cheerful, beautiful and clever; popularity is from the beginning to the end, and luck is like a rocket soared, encountering any difficulties can always head off a danger with the help of the superior; there is no lack of a series of help of men, pets and friends, until finally her mana is the first all over the world and her temperament has big change with killing everywhere; she still hasall the male around her; renaming her as Mary Sue is right and all the errors belong to other people; what Mary Sue encountering is all forced.

This kind of play has become the main stream in the soap opera market.For example, the formal play “Palace”, the female lead went to the Qing Dynasty from the modern society, gave suggestions to many princes and did not forget talking about love and romance with them.TV drama industry analysts said that the play contained ancient costume, romance and the idol which were enough to make TV sell well and popular and was fully mixed and matched. So many audience concerned about the reality outraged and lashed out at the drama overreact and "the audience were treated as the mentally handicapped and anthomaniac, but still could not block more and more "time and space shuttle" plots in TV series, and a considerable amount of network novels have been adapted into movies and TV shows because of this.

Adapted from the novel, composing and piece together plots have been far from being able to meet the market demand, so brain damage plays find an additional path -- reproducing the classic. For example, the previous play “swordsman” which is like the chicken rib has been reproduced for many times. Under the banner of "respect for the original" flag, many peoplefalsified the story neither fish nor fowl, and the new versions appeared one after another out of joy.

However, such domestic drama not only lack of "nutrition",but also rarely bring positive impactto the people, or even lead to some social contradictions, ranging from family conflict todisruptive consequences to some people's life. For example, Huashang net had reported that twogirls in primary school in Zhangpu county, Fujian province commit,and one girl said that shewantted to go to the Qing Dynasty to make a movie with the emperor in posthumous paper. This is obviously affected by various “brain damage drama”showed aggressively nowadays .

There are many domestic dramas like these and they have a common feature, that is, the femalelead is charming and the male lead is tall,handsome and rich. Why the charming female lead is so popular? Looking back the 30 years, we can clearly see changes in the process of human values,and you can understand deep reasons for this phenomenon.

People’s pursuit of money was motivated in 80s of the last century,however, in that era, we stillvalue "style decent", "kindness", "stable", enterprising and ambitious heart. In the 1990s, the gap between the rich and the poor gradually formed, the importance of material and money is obvious, and the nation has reached an unprecedented degree to persuing money. At the same time, in a very long period of time, "material benefit" and "money containing multi-function"were also regarded as evil and received repeated criticism. Entering the new century, the old values are broken, and the new values are not established. The thought " crying in a BMW andnot laughing in a bicycle "thought  is unexpectedly widely popular in the society. With thematerialism expanding,the economic globalization,and the occupational instability, soaring housing prices,etc,more and more people feel exhausted and personal feelings need to be satisfied; more and more people transit from the pursuit of materialism to the pursuit of their inner feelings.

Among the pursuit of inner feelings, the most important one is to love. Because people want perfect “love”in real life to the "love" too perfect and they can’t get it,and many people have a cavity of emotional sustenance in the drama and use the illusion of plot to meet the "love" they want. At the same time, some people see the market demand, invest money, and reproduce all sorts of brain damage drama mentioned above, rather than thinking about how to provide slightly nutritious spiritual food for people, which is indeed a sad thing.

How to meet the spiritual needs of Chinese people? It is a difficult problem that Chinese people need to face today, but also is a problem that a man of insight is seeking to solve. So, only from the word "love" to talk about, the most difficult word for human to definite is "love"; although this is  the common desire of 70 billion people, however each people has different understandingto "love" . However, at the very least, we are very clear that "love" is not just a man and a woman to cause electric shock and is intravenous drip of sacrifice and dedication in daily life.Thebook with global circulation, the Christian Classic Bible says that “love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Love is never tired of waiting; love is kind; love has no envy; love has no high opinion of itself, love has no pride;It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Love's ways are ever fair, it takes no thought for itself; it is not quickly made angry, it takes no account of evil; Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; It takes no pleasure in wrongdoing, but has joy in what is true; It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Love has the power of undergoing all things, having faith in all things, hoping all things.  Love never fails.” (1 corinthians Chapter 13: 4-8) To those who is the pursuing "love", this interpretation can be described as worthy of reflection.

True love is giving, dedication and sacrifice. This kind of love is active and full of kindness. Therefore, those who are responsible for their life and future shall refrain from falling into the void feelings and not be affected by various brain damage drama;and we shall return to the real life, calm down, and seek true love because only the true love can be like the sun to illuminate our life.
