Older Sisters Riding the Winds and Breaking the Waves features performers older than 30. MANGO TV

The reality show Older Sisters Riding the Winds and Breaking the Waves wrapped up on Sept 4. Seven performers stood out from 30 contestants and formed a brand-new girl group. They included Ning Jing, Wan Qian, Meng Jia, Li Sidanni, Zhang Yuqi, Yu Kewei and Huang Ling.

“What defines a girl group? I have many answers, but none of the answers were about age,” said Meng, a former member of K-pop girl group Miss A. The show exclusively featured 30 female singers, actors and hosts older than 30. What Meng said echoed the theme of the show: fighting ageism.
“是什么定义了一个女团?我有很多个答案,但没有一个与年龄有关,”韩国流行女团Miss A前成员孟佳说道。该节目以30位30岁以上的女性歌手、演员以及主持人为主角。而孟佳所言则呼应了节目的主题:对抗年龄歧视。
