Malaysian web celebrity holds debut concert in Taiwan

TAIPEI, Taiwan - Malaysian web celebrity Lin Min-chen held her first ever concert Sunday, calling the Taipei event "the most nerve-wracking experience" of her life.

The 26-year-old hit viral fame last year thanks to her resemblance of a character in the manga "One Piece."

She moved to Taiwan shortly afterward to build a career in showbiz and last year even acted in a Hong Kong film.

During Sunday's concert, Lin introduced fellow Malaysian Abin Fang as one of her special guests.

Both were born on the Malaysian island Penang, where Lin said she and her family still return to regularly.

As Fang still resides in Penang, Lin told her fans that Fang would often play host to Lin and her family during their visits, taking them to restaurants that serve popular Malaysian cuisine.

During an audience interaction segment, Lin revealed that she'd had the opportunity to work abroad thanks to Fang, who featured her in a music video shot in Thailand.

Another special guest who joined Lin on stage Sunday was Wayne Huang, a member of popular Taiwanese boyband SpeXial, with whom she performed a duet.
