    Large S; Small S. Assistance from readers of Chinese?

    Post  ewaffle on Wed Jun 22, 2011 9:45 am

    Reading translations of the Chinese entertainment press I have encountered the terms "Large S", "Small S" and perhaps a few other S type terms. I haven't been able to figure them out from the the context and the often useful character by character translation/suggestions of the MDBG dictionary hasn't helped. I wonder if those who read Chinese can come up with something.

    A couple of recent examples:

    "Big Takefu" Peking Opera Peking Opera Blues play a large S shape of the exposure stunning debut

    《大武生》京剧造型曝光 大S扮刀马旦惊艳亮相[高清大图]

    and

    Women sisters endorsement small S supplies a large lazy S Li Wang Fei scandal

    小S姐妹代言女性用品 大S懒理汪小菲绯闻[高清大图

    These are picture captions--I can post the urls if needed.

    Belated reply: That's sisters Barbie and Dee Hsu. You know Barbie. Dee is a tv host known for making outrageous comments. Barbie, recently married Wang Xiaofei. The wedding was a PR disaster. He's the rich son of so-and-so and recently implicated with carousing with an o-model Angelin(?) Lv. Okay, TMI!
