The question is (and I suspect the answer is no), will this character catch on permanently, and will it be included in the typable character set?

 

I suspect this fad will very quickly blow over.

There's actually a massive backlog of Unicode CJK character set additions right now - the IRG is way behind schedule on the planned CJK Unified Extension E and Extension F - so while this would be a longshot at any time, it's even more of one now.

Does anyone else find it strange that Language Log blocks users in mainland China from reading its articles? Suffice to say, I only read the Telegraph piece.

Does language log block users or does the GFW?

Language log is not blocked by the GFW (at least not for me, but it has been very slow recently).

In any case, I'm not likely to use "duang" very much since I'm unable to type it.

Well, for some reason everytime I try to access it in mainland China it comes up with a message saying "You are banned".

Perhaps they were getting a lot of spam from someone who used the same IP address that you are now using and so they banned the IP (or a range of IP addresses).  I'd send them an email about it.

From what I saw of Chan's shampoo commercial, "Duang" is the effect the shampoo had on his hair. Like, before the shampoo, his hair was flat. After the shampoo, it had a lot of volume, very puffy, his hair was like "duauauauang."

I haven't seen anybody using "duang" in the last few weeks. This fad appears to be fading out.

That was fast. Faster than young stylish women's clothing fashions.
