Malaysian singer Gary Chaw recently joined the second season of popular reality show Dad, Where Are You Going? (China version) with his children, Joe, 6, and Grace, 3. However, his daughter has been teased by netizens for resembling Japanese manga character Crayon Shin-chan due to her thick and dark eyebrows.
To address his daughter’s grievances, Gary uploaded a photo, which shows Grace crying, on Weibo.
Meanwhile, the first season of Dad, Where Are You Going? premiered in Taiwan on Tuesday, beating the ratings of the Korean version.
The popularity of the father-and-child pairings, such as Jimmy Lin and his 4-year-old son Kimi, skyrocketed after the show aired in China last year. The programme also brought about a new generation of “child stars” – Chinese director Wang Yue Lun’s daughter, Angela Wang, previously graced the cover of a fashion magazine and walked the runway of a reknowned international brand.
Jimmy and Kimi too have become advertisement darlings while Chinese model Sean Zhang, father of Sky, recently made a cameo appearance in Korean drama Doctor Stranger.
