It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Furong Jie Jie (i.e. Sister Hibiscus), the internet celebrity who shot to fame by being… supremely confident in her own looks. Well, she’s popped up again now! Recently, the super popular blogger was spotted in a costume show in Shanghai with Japanese AV model Sora Aoi!
For those of you not in the know, Furong Jie Jie shot to fame in 2005 after she posted in two top Beijing university BBSes about her trials getting in, along with pictures of herself extolling her own beauty and videos of herself dancing. In 2008, Panda design guy Zhao Bandi recruited her to model for him.
As for Sora Aoi, she’s been famous for a while as a Japanese nude model with “huge breasts,” but she especially exploded in popularity in China when she got a twitter account, apparently causing thousands of Chinese netizens to download VPNs in order to follow her.
Apparently the event was to promote some kind of online gaming thing. Besides Aoi and Furong Jie Jie, another Internet celebrity called Sister Feng was there as well. Feng Jie Jie got popular by distributing leaflets in Shanghai asking for an outstanding and handsome husband despite being neither outstanding nor handsome herself. Guess the way to fame in China really is to be audaciously egotistical.
