In the these couple of chapters I have honestly understood nothing. The names are confusing I don't get this “lets change” thing. But I’ll try my best. Sorry if the questions are already answered in the book.
“What did her family do. Since they didn't want Ji-li to audition because of background inspections”
They obviously did something but I seriously don't know how to answer this question. Did they defy someone. Are the againsts these changes. Is it there past did they commit a crime. The consequences are probably really severe because in page 26 her grandmother said “Maybe we should let her try. She probably won't be chosen anyway.” But her parents still didn't let her. I’m thinking its big because they're not taking risks, not even one that could change their daughter’s life forever. I dont know in a good way or a bad one. Who knows..
I chose this image because culture, parents, customs (i think) are blocking her from doing things she wants like auditioning.
Why suddenly change. Why are her Parents so againsts it, further in the book will someone be punished because of their actions.?
I don’t understand why people decided to let go of the culture. And neither do i understand why her parents are so defiant over it. Do they think things are going to go crazy and unbalanced. They obviously don't agree with all the things going on because in dinner when Ji-Li is talking about the people breaking the sign. They stay quiet. As usual in books the some of the main character does something because he/she believes. And usually someone they are very close to gets hurt because of them. Or maybe her parents don't want her to suck in what they think are “crazy ideas”. So they will try to make a difference. But after all that someone get emotionally or physically hurt. I'm assuming this prediction from the books that I read.
Which side will the main character take. Does she disagree with her parents. What will she do about it.?
Does she want change. Does she want her habits to change. I think maybe not. She might agree with her parents after all. She saw these people cutting a man's pants and shoes because it wasn't wide enough. She thought it was humiliating and frustrating to be the man. And when her friend said yang sang people started taking it too seriously because apparently is was spreading fourolds. And that she a inviting foreign beliefs in her, with something basic like lotion. Shes probably going to realize everything is wrong. And do something about it. She’ll probably start defying these new changes start something to make people realize. Because that's what usually happens in books.
I chose this image because I’m guessing in the future she will have to choose a side. Then she will decide which one is right and which one is wrong.
