We’re always on the lookout for familiar faces wherever we go. After all, you never know who you might spot in the crowd; be it a long-lost friend or even a famous celebrity! Take these badminton fans who discovered S.H.E member Hebe Tien (田馥甄) at the recent Taipei Open for instance!
Apparently, the Taiwanese singer had been there to witness the matches. Coincidently, Hebe was present for the Malaysia men’s doubles Man Wei Chong (万炜聪) and Tee Kai Wun (鄭凱文)’s victory against Olympic Champions Lee Yang (李洋) and Wang Chi-lin (王齊麟). Her presence in the audience was certainly a welcome one.
For Wei Chong and Kai Wun, their win on 24th July heralded their comeback. According to Wei Chong, this was their first breakthrough since their injuries, which were announced in May. “Thank you for your support and encouragement,” he wrote on his socials. “(We) hope we will get better in the future.” Kai Wun also promised they will continue working hard, adding that this was his second Super 300 tournament and also his second hard-earned title.
While the matches were definitely a sight to see, some netizens took the opportunity to scan the tournament’s crowd. To their surprise, they identified a certain superstar sitting in the seats! Hebe, dressed in a simple outfit with a white mask, could be seen cheering on the players as excitedly as the rest of the audience. Some cheekily wondered who the S.H.E member was supporting, with a few hoping for Hebe favouring Malaysia.
Hebe appeared to be there solely for the matches. However, some suspect she wasn’t the only celebrity there. A few claimed Malaysian YouTuber Wei Hong (偉鴻) was present and in the same row as the singer! However, others argued they could simply be a look-alike.
Well, we certainly hope Hebe enjoyed the players giving their all. And like many others, we look forward to seeing Wei Chong and Kai Wun at the next tourney. Who knows, perhaps Hebe will make another appearance there again!
