From the new China till 1999, who are the most loved and popular female stars in these 50 years? Who have left so much of a dent in our lives that they are still kept in our thoughts in the present and beyond?
The goddesses and idols of the people from 1949 to 1999 -- their smile, their look, their voice, and their talents are still vivid through these old photos.
Teresa Teng， Deng Lijun, was a Taiwanese Chinese pop singer, known for her folk songs and romantic ballads. She was billed as one of the "Five Great Asian Divas" during the 1970s and 1980s due to their huge cross-cultural popularity.
Due to the inflamed relations between Taiwan and the mainland at the time, Teresa was never able to play a single concert in mainland China. This however, did not prevent the Chinese audiences from falling in love with her songs. She was the first artist in China to be dubbed a pop star.
Li Lihua made her first movie Three Smiles (San Xiao) in Shanghai at age 15, and became an overnight sensation. Her film career spanned over three decades, a rare feat in this fast-changing industry. Adept at diversified roles and excelling in femme fatale parts, she often played strong feminist characters of courage, patriotism, wiles, and dignity.
