In July 2020, short video blogger Li Ziqi set the Guinness World Record title of “The Most Subscribed YouTube Chinese Channel” with 11.4 million YouTube channel subscriptions, and was therefore included in the “Guinness World Records 2021”.
Li Ziqi released his first video “Making skirts from grape skins” on YouTube in 2017. The poetic pastoral life and profound Chinese traditional culture in the video attracted fans from all over the world, and as a result, they successively won the silver and diamond creator medals on the YouTube platform.
In 2012, Li Ziqi decided to stay in his hometown to take care of his sick grandmother, and in 2015 he tried to make videos by himself. Although the initial video is only a few minutes, she sometimes takes a few days to complete. In order to shoot the overhead view, she has to climb to the tree and fix the camera between the branches of the tree. She used bamboo and wood to build a hut and swing in the yard, and even spent two years to complete the process of making the four treasures of ancient Chinese study.
Many details and memories of Li Ziqi’s childhood living in the countryside with her grandparents, as well as the skills learned by ears and eyes, have become elements of her personal style in her creation. Breaking through language barriers and cultural differences, Li Ziqi allowed more people to understand the beautiful meaning of Chinese culture. As of January 25, 2021, her YouTube subscriptions continued to grow to 14.1 million, breaking her own world record.
The Chinese culture conveyed by Li Ziqi’s video is moving further, and the Guinness World Records will also look forward to her wonderful content and new world records!
