“I don’t need to flirt. I will seduce you with my awkwardness,” Chen captioned the post, adding hashtags such as #tallgirls and #shortpeopleproblems.
It’s unclear how tall Liu actually is, but Chen’s followers have known as early as 2011 that he stands 5 feet and 4 inches (162.56 centimeters).
The couple first met at an overseas “Voice of China” contest several years ago, where Chen was a judge and Liu was a contestant.
“When I first saw him I thought he was really cute,” Liu said in a Q&A video on Chen’s channel, Music Never Sleeps. “A lot of people told me about him when I was backstage. We were like, ‘Oh my god, Jason Chen’s here, you know? He’s a great singer!’ I was really surprised, and when I saw him I just thought he was really cute.”
It was not difficult, however, to notice Chen’s height at first sight.
“But he’s a little short, you know. It’s just a fact,” Liu added. “But that was my first impression.”
Chen’s post on June 7 is only one of many where they can be seen standing side-by-side, showing the difference in their height.
But as wise ones would say, such a thing does not matter in the face of true love — and netizens now say that Chen has inspired them.
The post also made rounds on Facebook, where short gentlemen are being tagged by friends for a boost in self-confidence.
