So today I like, love Taiwan. Possibly it's because I spent like seven hours at one of the best night markets in the country today and bought a fuckton of clothes and food and stuff for like, thirty dollars, total. And I was there with friends and it was super fun and I spoke Chinese at people and didn't suck at it, and I met a Californian that owns a frozen yogurt joint there WHICH IS DELICIOUS and we chatted in American English for a bit and then I came home and found a new Taiwanese musician that I am like, completely in love with right now.

MAN I LOVE IT HERE

So to celebrate my sudden overwhelming love, have a giant picspam of Taiwanese people you should know.

FIRST IT'S JIRO WANG

GOD I LOVE JIRO







JIRO IS IN A BUMBLEGUM POP ROCK OUTFIT CALLED FAHRENHEIT, WHICH I USUALLY CALL FEILUNHAI BECAUSE THAT'S THE CHINESE FOR IT AND ALSO BECAUSE I CAN'T SPELL







THEIR NEW ALBUM IS LOL TERRIBAD AND BADLY PRODUCED BUT THEY ARE REALLY RIPPED AND GOOD LOOKING IN THE MUSIC VIDEOS, I MEAN THE COVER IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF ALL OF THESE THINGS



SO YOU SEE

ANYHOW GOODBYE JIRO, I CANNOT DWELL ON YOU FOREVER



SCROLL UP TO THAT ADORABLE GODDAMN GIRL IN THE THIRD PICTURE, THIS IS HEBE TIAN

HEBE IS FUCKING GORGEOUS









AND ADORABLE, AND I WANT HER HAIR SO BADLY

ALSO ADORABLE? AARON YAN

AARON IS ACTUALLY PRETTY ATTRACTIVE BUT IMHO IT ONLY REALLY COMES ACROSS IN VIDEO, IN STILLS HE IS JUST ADORABLE

I HAVE TO KEEP EDITING THIS SECTION BECAUSE GOD, NO IMAGES OF HIM WANT TO BE HOTLINKED PROPERLY GODDAMN







BUT YOU KNOW WHAT'LL FUCKING ROT YOUR TEETH WITH ADORABLE CUTENESS? AARON AND HEBE TOGETHER







CAN YOU EVEN SURVIVE

I CAN'T SEGUE INTO WANG LEEHOM PROPERLY, SO OKAY, LET'S JUST DO THIS

TECHNICALLY HE'S AN AMERICAN BUT WTF EVER, HE'S LIVED HERE FOR LIKE A DECADE OR SOMETHING







I CAN ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT HE LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THIS IN PERSON

BLAH BLAH BLAH TAKESHI KANESHIRO

I ACTUALLY DON'T FIND HIM ATTRACTIVE SO MUCH AS A WORK OF HUMAN ART, HE IS EVERYTHING WE AS A SPECIES SHOULD AESTHETICALLY ASPIRE TO. I'M ALSO TOLD HE CAN'T ACT BUT WHATEVER







MR. KANESHIRO, YOU ARE POSSIBLY TOO GOOD LOOKING, IT'S CREEPY IN SOME SHOTS

I WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR TALKING ABOUT DUDES FOR TOO LONG

THIS IS ELLA CHEN







I HAVE NO IDEA HOW SHE MANAGES TO BE SO CUTE AND ALSO BADASS AT THE SAME TIME? IT'S GOTTA BE THE HAIR

ELLA AND HEBE ARE BOTH IN S.H.E, ANOTHER BUBBLEGUM POP ROCK OUTFIT







THEIR MUSIC MATCHES THEIR IMAGE REMARKABLY WELL, WHAT I'VE HEARD SLAYS ME WITH THE ADORABLENESS, IT SLAYS ME

THIS MIGHT SURPRISE YOU, SINCE I'M A PRETTY LONGTIME ROCK AND METAL FAN

LUCKILY, TAIWAN GIVES ME A-MEI

OH MY GOD A-MEI







A-MEI ACTUALLY SINGS A HARD ROCK SONG IN TAIWANESE HOKKIEN

AND SHE'S HOT

I LOVE HER SO MUCH I ALMOST CAN'T DEAL WITH HER EXISTENCE

THERE'S SO MANY MORE THOUGH

SO MANY, HERE ARE SOME HONORABLE MENTIONS













plz no comments about how hot (or not) you find asians, you will kill my happy buzz

but yeah, right now my fandom is basically the entire entertainment industry of taiwan

I am sorry if you have to talk to me for like ... probably the next year, because yeah this is going to come up repeatedly

if you want to know more about any of these people, you only need to ask. you might not even need to ask tbh. you might not even want to know.

I am very dumb when it comes to celebrities on that side of the globe.

But Jiro Wang's haircut has me intrigued. PARTICULARLY IN THE FIRST PICTURE it's so wispy!

Well they mostly aren't famous in America like whatsoever! Even poor Wang Leehom, who's still an American citizen and everything.

I LOVE HIS OLD HAIR SO MUCH sob, now he's got this:



Which is cute and all, but I will forever mourn the amazingness of his old floppy hair.

I can't even remember how I found out about Wang Leehom, all I know is I heard Forever Love and was like omg. I understand only the five English words in it but his voice is beautiful.

Nooooo, he looks like he's ready to go to work at the bank!

I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT HIM really until my friend took me to an appearance he made at the mall around the corner a few weeks ago. Now when I mention that to people, they keep threatening to kill me because he's OMG SO FAMOUS and really, I had no idea! Also I've seen like two of his movies, one of which is actually pretty good! IT COSTARS JACKIE CHAN.

AS FOR THE BANK THING WELL

NOT QUITE

i fucking know right

I don't know if they've all got like, teams of roaming stylists following them everywhere, or maybe they are all naturally that hair gifted, or maybe it's L'Oreal

I am getting a haircut in a few days and tbh i have no idea who i want to emulate most here, probably hebe but. man.

I'm going to go with the roaming teams, that or they have some kind of genius hair stylists that have the formula of the perfect haircut. I love the shaggy floppy boy hair soooo much

HOW CAN YOU DISLIKE IT

oh unless you mean how they are stalked by the paparazzi in a seriously gross way since they aren't nearly rich or influential enough to have the resources to like defend themselves at all, or how jiro only made enough to live off of like $150 a month for a bunch of the time he was famous, or how many of them have literally been made to work themselves into unconsciousness or injury and go to the hospital

nooooooo i brought the :( into my own post

BUT SO CUTE damn now that sounds rather callous, doesn't it

I don't see why you can't think the PEOPLE are awesome though, they certainly seem to be.

WELL there is the thing where my enthusiastic thoughtless fanning of them is sort of messed up if you consider how messed up the industry is, but if I go the other way and pity them then I'm being undeniably at least slightly obnoxiously paternalistic. IT ALL MAKES ME :/ SO HARD MAN.

I was waiting to show Bridgette this awesome thing of amazingness, and I accidentally stayed up too late and got a second wind of wakefulness.
