I'll remain single for fans: Taiwanese-Korean singer

His poster boy looks and impressive vocals have gained Taiwanese-Korean singer Bii legions of fans in Asia.

Since his debut in 2010, the 24-year-old, whose real name is Bii Shu-ching, has received countless gifts from them.

But there was one present, which was sent to Bii's workplace in Taiwan, that was particularly unforgettable.

In town to promote his sophomore album Come Back To Bii, the boyish-looking idol told The New Paper in Mandarin: "Someone sent a carton to me anonymously, and when I opened it, there were over 200 condoms inside.

"I was quite shocked and initially thought it was a prank by my colleagues."

He said: "I have no idea why the person sent me that as a gift. We had a good laugh about it before my manager got rid of them."

Bii, whose dad is Taiwanese and mum South Korean, was born and bred in South Korea.

At 18, he went to China to visit his father, hoping to help him out with his business there.

His striking good looks caught the eye of his father's business partner, who brought him to Taiwan to groom him into a star.

Even though Bii could not speak Mandarin when he first arrived in Taiwan, he practised hard and eventually released his first EP Bii in 2010, followed by his debut album Bii Story.

But as his popularity soared, Bii started to feel the burden of being an idol.
