Recently, a “unique” noodle shop near the Yuquan campus
of Zhejiang University has attracted the attention of many people.
The reporter came to the store and saw that the store,
which was less than 20 square meters,
was full of “Dream of the Red Chamber” elements.
Two or thirty pages of printed A4 paper were posted on the wall,
with the mystery of the name of “Dream of the Red Chamber”,
and stills of the 87 version of the TV series “Dream of the Red Chamber”.
The owner Zhou Kun told reporters that
he is a literature fan,
and especially loves “Dream of the Red Chamber”.
He originally had a Master of Arts degree from Zhejiang University.
After graduation, he worked in two publishing houses in Hangzhou.
After retiring in 2011,
he opened this noodle restaurant.
The culture of “A Dream of the Red Chamber” was moved to the store.
Because I like “Dream of the Red Chamber”,
and the shop opened and is also called Liu Laolao,
we brought up the culture of “Dream of the Red Chamber”,
I posted some stills of “Dream of the Red Chamber” in the shop,
and made some riddles,
which happened to be “A Dream of Red Chamber.”
There are twelve tunes and twelve songs in it.
Let’s take it out and see if customers can guess
the twelve characters it describes based on its twelve songs.
Zhou Kun told reporters that
he still keeps the “Dream of the Red Chamber”
published by the People’s Publishing House in 1987.
Although the book had been torn down,
he still took the book with him and read it from time to time.
He said that in “Dream of the Red Chamber”,
the most admired character is Liu Laolao.
If there is no image of Liu Laolao,
it seems that a group of sons and daughters drink and chant all day long,
but Liu Laolao is from the countryside,
then she is bringing everyone into this popular worldly life.
That is to say, she is an image of a low-level old woman
who is very civil and very grateful
and knows how to return to the image of an old woman.
Zhou Kun said that “A Dream of Red Chamber”
is like an encyclopedia with various cultural knowledge.
In it, he also realized a philosophy of life.
