Fans were left in shock last week after Taiwanese television host Chen Chien-chou (Blackie Chen) shared a recent photo of Wang Leehom on Facebook.
The Taiwanese-American singer-songwriter is known as a creative genius and likes to try new things.
At the end of last year, he was busy learning Swift, a programming language developed by Apple Inc, and creating a music teaching app.
In the photo, the 44-year-old singer is seen wearing a casual black shirt, a cap, glasses, with a big backpack.
What drew much attention was that Wang looked like he has not had a haircut and or a shave for a long time.
Alongside the photo, Chen wrote: “This backpacker’s style is very Keanu Reeves.”
The photo has garnered nearly 8,000 likes on Facebook one hour after it was posted. On Instagram, it has clocked over 18,000 likes.
In response to the post, many were dumbfounded and commented: ”Who is this?” while another wrote: “No wonder paparazzi can hardly follow him.”
One commented: “It took a long time to recognise him.”
Others pointed out that Wang looks like actors Zhaozhi Zhang, Chang Fei and Sphinx Ting. The China Post, Taiwan/Asia News Network
