Super cute and witty Xiao Xiao Bin is easily the top rising star in Taiwan over the past few months. Taking a look back at 2009, some stars stood out in mind as the media gave us full coverage on them with weekly, or even daily, updates. Remember homeboy goddess Yao Yao , the super-hyped return of variety host Zhu Ge Liang after being in hiding for 10 years, and Mark Chao whenever he goes to the gym or blogs about bubble wrap? Maybe these stars can get some breathing room now that the new prince of media coverage is 5 year-old Xiao Xiao Bin.
Xiao Xiao Bin attended SETTV’s Entertainer Awards press conference with an entourage that consisted of his dad Xiao Bin Bin, younger brother Mini Bin, his uncle and his manager. The young star has been nominated for Most Notable B-Ka (second fiddle) along side other rising stars like the Virgin Prince Jing Wong. When asked about his chances of wining, Xiao Xiao Bin assured his fans by saying, “I will win!” When reporters asked why, he responded, “Because I’m very good at acting.” In addition to answering questions directed to him, he also showed his professionalism by helping out with the microphones for other interviewees.
Although Autumn’s Concerto is still airing, fans will be able to see Xiao Xiao Bin in the competing drama Down with Love on January 24th. After Autumn’s Concerto finishes, he will be seen again on the follow-up drama P.S. Man with Blue Lan. Xiao Xiao Bin has just completed filming a CF for a dairy product and another for electronics. The media estimated his earnings at NT$ 700,000 for last week alone.
