Just as the internet was coming down from all the hype over Taipei’s hunky bean curd seller and the now semi-famous “pork princess”, another beautiful vendor in Taiwan has got web users in a tizzy. Must be something in the water.
Wang Xianghong was recently photographed at a fruit and vegetable store on Qiangjiang Road in Taipei’s Beitou district, and customers, mostly female, admit that they can’t help but ogle the worker’s six-pack as they’re shopping for fresh produce.
“It must be quite hot today for his top to be off. I’d want to buy more,” one female shopper said.
Wang, who is 20 years old and measures 185 centimeters tall, reportedly works as a part-time model with the Taiwanese agency CatWalk.
Wang told intrepid reporters that he plans on serving in the army at the end of this year and has been working in the market for almost half a year. He sometimes takes off his shirt for the convenience of working, and admits that some aunties make comments on his body and intentionally move towards him while choosing produce.
He works at the market four days a week and works part-time at CatWalk learning how to walk the runway.
According to the store owner, surnamed Chen, Wang and her son were primary school classmates. Since her store was understaffed, Wang took the initiative to help out, and is responsible for stocking produce on the shelves and serving customers.
She said that she hasn’t noticed a major increase in sales since Wang started helping out, because the store has always done well.
