Remember Cyndi Wang? The Taiwanese pop idol from the early noughties whose last claim to fame was when she was named as the third party behind the very public break-up between Sonia Sui and actor Yao Yuanhao back in 2012. Well, the 34-year-old is back in the news again, this time for a far more superficial, but no less unpalatable, reason. While Cyndi’s been plagued with rumours that she’s undergone plastic surgery for years now, the allegations have been given a, um, lift, with a recent appearance she made on a Taiwanese variety show. Viewers were shocked by how unrecognisable Cyndi’s features are now, especially her nose, which they likened to Voldemort's. Now that’s Riddikulus-ly funny.
Back in the ’90s, Daniel, with his floppy centre-parted hair and puppy dog eyes, was a bona fide heartthrob whose popularity rivalled that of the Heavenly Kings. He became the talk of the town recently when netizens noted how different he looked in an online interview he gave. His double eyelids are a lot deeper, giving his once-lively looking peepers a sort of doll-like, vacant quality. His eyebrows are also thicker and jet-black like a K-popstar’s and more well-drawn than your mum’s at a wedding dinner. His skin is also devoid of lines, lines you would expect to see on a 41-year-old man, lines that would have given his face some character instead of this waxy, embalm-y quality it now has. Well, Daniel might not look anything like he used to, but at least he still has a head full of thick, lustrous hair. That has got to be real right?
