China had some really talented resistance fighters during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Here’s one wrestling with a tank. Someone suggested that he ought to sink an aircraft carrier.
Yes, that’s Taiwanese singer/actor Nicky Wu, former teen band Tiger Cubs Group 小虎队 member whose albums once sold 15 million copies. But from the looks of things, the 50-year-old Wu Qi Long probably didn’t have much to sing about recently. Appearing in one of these tacky “patriotic” dramas is a sure indication that the star has lost its shine and is desperate for a stipend. Times are bad. It pays to be patriotic.
