i don't think it's one of those liveries that I would get all excited about; but it certainly isn't the ugliest. Just plain. To be honest with you, that green shading is kind of cool.

What the hell were they thinking when they chose to paint the nose and belly in this very light peppermint-ish green? Seriously, that's disgusting.  thumbsdown   vomit

The greeny-colour might not be the nicest, but it just looks like a fairly standard BBJ livery, really!

It's a dare devil of a government!! But there are worst liveries flying around (the French government). This Taiwan-one used colours (maybe the president is colour- and emotionally blind).

That BBJII, if it's the same plane, used to have a rather conservative color scheme. And being around since as early as 2001, it's hardly brand new. Only the livery might qualify as new.

Could be because it is operated by the Air Force. It replaced the interim B737-400.

This livery is actually sort of cool. I like the colors.

Chinese usually do not show great originality when it comes to designing liveries, logos, corporate identity and even names (gloden deer that, golden deer this )
