“Neijuan” and “Lying Ping” are words that Chinese post-90s and even post-00s often talk about. One refers to “excessive competition” and the other stands for “exit competition.” These two diametrically opposed terms reflect the frustration of the younger generation against the fierce competition in Chinese society.

Sun Ke, 27, comes from a small city in eastern China and has a wealthy family. Like tens of millions of young people who have just entered society, he wants to use his own efforts to buy a house and a car in a big city to gain a firm foothold.

He thinks it will not be too difficult to achieve this goal. In the past two to three decades, for generations of Chinese who have enjoyed the “reform and opening up” dividends, owning a house, owning a car, and becoming a middle class has formed an established social upward path, and even inspirational stories of starting from scratch and becoming multi-millionaires abound. Yes.

With the support of his parents and the little money he saved, he believes that he can live the life he wants quickly, just like other entrepreneurial and fortune stories he often sees on social media. At the end of 2018, shortly after graduating from school, he and his friend opened a food store selling bunches near a university in Shanghai. The two invested a total of 650,000 yuan.
