BEIJING: Taiwan singer Jay Chou urged Mandarin music stars to "unite" and stay ahead of the Korean wave during an awards ceremony in Beijing on Sunday, reported Taiwan media.
"All artistes should unite and don't 'Gangnam Style' anymore," said Chou.
Chou described "Gangnam Style" as being quite humorous, but said Mandarin music is cooler.
He added that Mandarin music fans should support Mandarin music, and not let the Korean wave get too strong.
Interestingly, Chou sported a head of blonde hair when he made his statement, a look that resembled those sported by Korean pop stars.
However, Chou dismissed allegation that he had copied their look, and said that he dyed his hair blonde to match his killer abs.
While nobody can say for sure whether K-pop inspired his new look, it is clear that he does have killer abs.
The superstar had showed off his well-defined eight pack in recent promotional photos taken on the set of his new music video.
Chou revealed that he now weighed only 62kg and is in top physical shape.
"I used to pant when I sing 'Nunchucks' (a high-energy song), now I find it much easier," said Chou.
