  • Generally speaking, American dramas only communicate in English, but the role of Grandma Huang played by Song Jingxiu in the play is set to not speak English, so when Grandma Huang speaks, she speaks Chinese directly, so there will be English subtitles. 
  • Due to the delicate relationship between races in the United States, non-white comedy works always need to be cautious. Most of these works in the past were made by white people, and the things produced were dull and offended the audience. A production team of different races was established: the writer is of Iranian descent and the producer is of Malaysian descent. Moreover, the material comes from the real life of Eddie Huang, which also makes many outrageous content in the play avoid criticism. 
  • The original author, Eddie Huang, believes that the show's attempt to reduce the uniqueness of his childhood story in order to cater to popular tastes will make "New Arrivals" a "reverse yellow face" - using Chinese faces to tell the story of white Americans.

    I read it when it first came out. The immigration story from the perspective of Taiwanese Chinese in the 1990s is still very interesting now. Breaking stereotypes with stereotyped prejudice, the whole is still very American spirit, maybe it is precisely because of the similar faces, many people in the barrage comment always forget that this is a period drama + autobiography, I guess it is quite unacceptable to self-deprecating , after all, some are really cruel

    I remember when I first met in winter, I was not in a good mood. This drama saved it!
