Ok Taecyeon, member of K-Pop boy band, 2PM, was discharged from the military back in May. Instead of taking a longer break, he has already started working. He came to Taiwan on August 21 for work. When he landed at the airport, he used simple Chinese to address the media such as, “Ni hao” and even told the reporters to be careful in Chinese. His last visit to Taiwan was 7 years ago. It turns out Ok Taecyeon was invited by Taiwan to be their new Taiwan Tourism Ambassador. The purpose of this trip is to film promotional material for the tourism bureau. Since his arrival, he has posted a few pictures of his visit on Instagram already.
As he is the tourism ambassador, naturally he’ll be introducing Taiwanese cuisine and culture in the video. What better way to show best of both worlds than going to a night market, a staple of Taiwanese culture. However, he shocked everyone when he showed up at the Feng Chia Night Market in Taichung holding hands with a girl on August 23. Rest assured, the female companion is portraying his girlfriend for the promotional video. Even so, he was met with a lot of screams from the crowd, especially from his fans.
