This is just a fan blog that updates everything about the Taiwanese boyband group Lollipop a.k.a Bang Bang Tang. There might be bias comments but that can’t be aviod, for any old news related to Lollipop it’s here. If you need to ask me a question or just to share information you can email me here.
Okay for people who wants to know a little bit of Lollipop’s background, here it is.
From the above photo/banner, from left to right they are: AoQuan (leader, also the oldest member), WangZi (the youngest member), XiaoYu, XiaoJie, AWei and WeiLian. These six guys all participated in a Taiwanese variety show called MoFanBangBangTang on Channel[V] which started in 2006. The purpose of this show was to train normal male students as super stars. During the show these guys would do random things in each episode such as singing, dancing, joking and acting, their performances will be judge by the upper class of Channel[V]. From time to time they will have exams, which is perform a talent. Based on their performance the judge will decide if they have the potential to stay on the show or not, other than their performance they will also be judge by their behavior off camera by the staffs.
After months of observation six boys were chosen as the members of Lollipop, AWei and WeiLian were the last minute chosen ones and they were also the 2nd batch of boys who came in the show. Each of the boys were chosen because of their strong individuality and talents.
AoQuan who is the leader of Lollipop and was also the class president on the show has always presented an outstanding performance on the show. In all elimination round AoQuan got first place and was always placed top on the list of boys. AoQuan is skilled in break dancing and was a former of a bboy crew in Taiwan name Black Angle. With his leadership and creative dance performances he has won a place in Lollipop.
WangZi who was only 17 when he joined the show, at first he’s very quiet and does not blend in with the boys very well because of his shyness. This has people mistaken him as someone who got attitude problems. After what Andy (director of Channel[V], also the one who created the show) said WangZi’s attitude and behavior have changed. WangZi have always been one of the popular boys on the show, he was given the name of “ten thousands soldiers” meaning he has a lot of fans. With his charming prince-like look and his hard working behavior he has earned a place in Lollipop.
XiaoYu also known as the rocker on the show, his personality is like a rocker. In the show XiaoYu was the only rocker which made him unique and was the only one who can sing and play an instrument out of the boys. His singing was acknowledge by the judges which is why he is the vocalist of Lollipop.
XiaoJie was one of the outstanding boys on the show, he was in the same bboy crew Black Angle as AoQuan. XiaoJie who always present himself as the “good boy” look was chosen as the “perfect husband” on the show by the girls. With his smooth talking skills, creative and outstanding dancing skills he was the first boy to be chosen in Lollipop.
AWei also one of the Black Angle bboy crew member joined in the second time audition, his famous move on the show was his “windmill” move which shocked everyone. AWei is usually get teased by his height and his “square-ish” face shape. AWei has a great sense of humor and is the joker in Lollipop. Although he was chosen in the last minute by the judges but he got everything of what it takes to be in Lollipop.
WeiLian is a former cheerleader, he came in the show same time as AWei. He was actually the last member to be chosen, at first a lot of audiences criticize and have doubts in WeiLian asking “Why a guy with no talent got chosen?” Netizen has said a lot of hurtful words to WeiLian but this just encouraged WeiLian to do better in future, his hard work did not disappoint the judges and fans, compared from the start WeiLian has improved a lot in singing and dancing wise.
These guys have come a long way through to get up to where they stand now, people who does not understand Lollipop will only think they have looks with no talents. But I can tell you that you’re wrong! and completely wrong! Because they debut as a singer, they were often criticize about their singing and immediately people just think they have no talent at all. Of course their singing when they debut wasn’t the best but it doesn’t mean they don’t have talent at all. What I see is you can’t really see the boys’ true talent by just watching a live or a MV of them you gotta watch their show MoFanBangBangTang.
Even these days some people would say Lollipop has no talent, but I can tell you that in their second album “I am Legend” 9 out of 10 songs were written by Lollipop. Throughout the years Lollipop has acted in dramas, movies, hosted TV shows and even be directors filming mini movies themselves.
These boys not only have looks but also personalities and talents!
