As same as all the countries, we cannot miss the Taiwan’s pop culture. Like any other countries, in Taiwan, there are so many famous pop stars that majority people in Taiwan like. Within so many pop stars, I would like to introduce some of the famous singers.
Music Video: Jay Chou “Big Ben”
Jay Chou is the most famous singer in Taiwan
. In Taiwan, he “could easily bill as the Michael Jackson of Asia.” Not only he is a singer but also he is songwriter, actor, and director. CNN also interviewed with Jay Chou about his new album, “Big Ben,” which was “written in a day during a trip to London.” This shows how much he likes to travel, even though he is so busy of all of his works. For this album, he traveled many other countries and for him, “traveling is fun no matter for work or leisure.” He does not do only one genre of music, but also tries many other genres such as R&B, rap, rock, etc.
Wu Chin-lin, also known as Wu Bai, is known as “Bon Jovi of Taiwan.” “Wu Bai & China Blue have been playing music together since 1992, and have built a loyal following that is with them to this day.” He is also known as The King of Rock and the band could be called the “Rolling Stones of Asia.”
Not only them, but also there are many celebrities who got fame from Taiwanese and famous in Taiwan. However, there was lack of opportunities for them to expand their album around other part of the world, such as in Europe or America. As the generations past, and the development of Internet usage give Asia countries celebrities to expand their field to different part of the world. “French music fans are being urged to participate in a music event in Paris on Jan. 30, which will showcase Taiwanese artists.” Nowadays, many fans from all around the world are eager to see celebrities from Asia and see many Asian media.
Watching how well the celebrities from Asia expand their field around the world and introduce their countries, I thought the race is not the biggest problem anymore. Even though the languages are different, the music is the power of connecting all the people.
Questions: what do you think of expansion of Asian pop culture around other part of the world? by watching their music video, what do you think of their music?
