So they thought it's very Cute

When 'Qing' invaded 'Ming', they forced local people to adopt their life style, including cutting off all hair on the head except a small part on the back, aka the pig tail.

Cutting hair like that is against the traditional culture of Chinese, so many people chose not to obey. Qing rulers see this a symbol of disobedient. They were beheaded in the number of tens of millions. People in many cities were slaughtered entirely.

A group of Chinese artists thought the fact that so many people died of a hair style was funny. Shanghai Media Crop, Anhui TV and Guangzhou TV are jointly making a sitcom on this piece of history. The story is about how Qing army had helped local barbarians cleaning their head.
