TAIPEI - Home-grown singer JJ Lin will probably be mobbed by fans on the streets in Singapore but strangely, no one recognised him in Taiwan on Monday (April 26).

In a video posted on social media early on Tuesday, the Taiwan-based musician was seen dancing in front of the Taipei Arena multi-purpose stadium. The backdrop was an LED screen showing an advertisement for his first English EP, Like You Do.

Casually dressed, the 40-year-old was wearing a cap but not a face mask. People were walking and cycling past him while he was dancing but no one appeared to recognise him.

The If Only (2014) singer captioned the video: "This is what happens when you dance in the middle of the road to your own ad screen..." and included one of the hashtags #NotEasyForMe.

Several fans left comments wondering why Lin was not recognised, with some saying the passers-by were probably going about their own business and oblivious to their surroundings.

Other joked that Lin was dancing remotely with Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai, who was holding her concert at the Taipei Arena on Monday as part of her Ugly Beauty World Tour.
