Show Luo makes debut in Japan

The singer’s Japanese single ‘Dante’ enters the Oricon chart in the first week of its release

On Feb 15, Taiwanese singer Show Luo made his foray into the Japanese music scene, with the release of his first Japanese single Dante.

The single peaked at number 10 on the Oricon chart within the first week of its release.

Yesterday, Show's management agency happily expressed that Show is the second Taiwanese singer to make it into the Oricon chart in the past 25 years. The first being late veteran singer Teresa Teng.

Show is also the first Taiwanese male singer to make it into the top 10 positions on the chart.

Commenting on his excellent result, the singer said, "I'm very excited and thankful for my fans' support. I hope to realise my dream of holding a concert at the Budokan Arena soon."

Because of his dashing good looks and funny personality, the Japanese media even praised that he is the Taiwanese version of Japanese idol Yamashita Tomohisa.

At the autograph sessions, held in Osaka and Tokyo, Show attracted more than 2,000 fans, who filled up the three-story building where the events were held. Those in attendance included wealthy women, who carried branded handbags.

When asked what activities they would like to see him do next, his fans shouted in unison, "We want to see Show in a Japanese drama!"

While Show made a successful debut in Japan, one 'Anti Show Fan Club' lambasted the singer for abandoning his Taiwanese fans and heading to Japan to swindle money from his newfound fan base.

The group also criticised Show for using his "hugs" to sell his album.

Show's manager responded to the report, saying, "It's difficult for an artiste to break into a foreign market. I hope everyone will give him your support."
