Interesting! Your post is my first encounter with the Chinese character . Its the 5880th most frequently used character, according to 现代汉语单字频率列表

 

Mind you that list is from March 2004, 15 years ago. With the explosion of the internet, social media and on-line communication, coupled with natural changes in languages,  I wonder how a new frequency list would stack up.

I feel like such a measure will surely just lead to an increase in old men walking around in revealing string vests instead...

And the best, and most telling, part is the logo on the 'wife-beater'...

I've started watching Taiwan news in the last few days and I've noticed they use Japanese words I've never heard used before on the mainland. Todays was 気持ち, or 'kimochi', which was used to represent '心情' in the subtitled phrase '還是你投票就心情' (or what was actually said: '還是你投票就気持ち' , although I believe here the meaning is closer to '心情很開心,舒服'

The Japanese phrase is actually 気持ちいい kimochi ii (the last three vowels are fused together to produce a long i--) which means 'feels good'. It is used on the mainland, but only in certain context and definitely not on television (“日本爱情动作片”,咳咳,你懂的 😀)
