PLA Female Singers’ Visit, Change in Taiwan Media

China News Service carried an article reporting on Song Zhuying, the PLA singer from the Naval Song and Dance Troupe, who recently visited Taiwan. Song is the second PLA singer allowed to perform in Taiwan. The first was Chen Sisi who visited Taiwan in 2009, when politicians in Taiwan expressed resistance and placed numerous restrictions on Chen’s visit. However Song’s visit encountered a dramatic change. Other than the pro-green Liberty Times, fewer media outlets mentioned Song’s connection with the PLA. 

The article stated, “Looking back at the journey of the PLA singer’s visit to Taiwan, the political flavor of Taiwan’s media has decreased and the soft fascination with the songs has attracted more attention.”
