Stunt actress Melody Chen Chuying, who has been the body double for stars like Shu Qi and Ivy Chen, recently got the attention of netizens when she announced that she will be renouncing her Taiwanese citizenship and is “looking forward to officially becoming a citizen of the People’s Republic of China soon”.
In her Weibo post, the 37-year-old shared that ever since she was young, her teachers have taught her to be “an upright Chinese person” and gushed about how “the Motherland can be as strong as it is today” thanks to the “party members and compatriots who dedicated their youths and lives to uphold the spirit of serving the people”.
“The Motherland is bound to be unified, and the chaos in Taiwanese society will surely be eased after the reunification,” she wrote. “Taiwan’s youths deserve a real platform for development and a society that is harmonious and not split.”
Sure enough, Chiu Chui-cheng, the Deputy Minister of the Mainland Affairs Council, stated that Melody’s Taiwanese household registration will be cancelled in accordance with the law, to which she responded: “That’s what I’ve always wanted.”
