Recently, Ariel Lin and Chen Bolin attended the 10th Seoul International Drama awards and were presented the Asia Star Grand Award.
During her acceptance speech on stage, Ariel said in Korean, “As a Taiwan’s artiste, I am grateful to receive this award.”
Her words did not seem to sync well with her China fans, who felt that she should introduce herself as “China Taiwan’s artiste”.
Many Chinese netizens have slammed Ariel angrily. One said “Do not forget to add the word ‘China’ in front of Taiwan.” Another said, “Return to Taiwan. Do not come to China to earn our money.”
However, most of the fans have defended Ariel and said that Ariel was not interested to get involved in politics. Besides, the awards organiser also grouped Ariel and Bolin under the Taiwanese artistes category.
Meanwhile, Ariel was not affected by the criticisms and posted a photo of herself and Lee Young Ae on her Weibo.

SHE IS A TAIWANESE ACTRESS PEOPLE WHO KNOWS ABOUT ARIEL,KNOWS SHE IS A TAIWANESE ACTRESS SO WHATS THE FREAKING BIG DEAL
AND I’M SURE THE SEOUL DRAMA AWARDS ORGANIZER INVITED HER AS FAMOUS TAIWANESE ACTRESS NOT A CHINESE ACTRESS
Of course she’s considered a Taiwanese Artist….. 1st off she was born and raised in Taiwan and she started her career in Taiwan then moved into China. If you grew up in Taiwan of course you will consider yourself Taiwanese. SO if a China artist comes and hits it big in Taiwan they should consider themselves “Taiwan China Artist” …. well that’s Bull crap……. if you “Fans” cant handle all this then you shouldn’t consider yourselves Ariel Lin’s fans! Also Taiwan is not a part of China.
