People Were Too Quick to Criticize Nana Ouyang About Her Chinese National Day Performance

When CCTV announced that Taiwanese artiste Nana Ouyang (歐陽娜娜) would perform the Chinese patriotic song “My Motherland” <我的祖國> at China’s National Day performance, Taiwanese netizens and critics immediately called out Nana and Angela as betraying their country.

The Taiwan government also became involved. According to Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council (MAC), their performance could violate a law involving cross-strait relations, because Nana is a Taiwan national. She could be fined between NT$100,000 to NT$500,000 for violating this law.

Despite this, many Taiwanese media critics have defended Nana. Taiwanese media personality and politician Jaw Shaw Kong (趙少康) said the Taiwanese people should be proud of Nana for representing Taiwan at an international setting. “Taiwanese artistes succeeding in China is a good thing, because it tells the mainland that, hey, there are plenty of talented people in Taiwan!”

Nana’s performance of “My Motherland”, which she co-performed with five other artistes, aired on September 30. Other artistes included Hong Kong actors Simon Yam (任達華) and Kara Wai (惠英紅). Line distribution between the six stars were about equal, however, screen time of their actual broadcasted performance was very limited. While Nana did get a brief close-up shot lasting a brief second, the majority of the performance comprised of scenery across China, or group shots. Netizens reaction toward Nana’s performance seemed overblown.

    I find it astonishing that people can sell their souls to maintain their revelant in the mainland entertainment market. The Chinese communist government is corrupt as they come, she deserves ALL the criticism coming her way.

    Real Taiwanese people will definitely feel outrageous given the current situation btw CCP and Taiwan where CCP threatens Taiwan with military action. When the CCP usurped power from KMT in China on the1st Oct 1949, it also means the demised of KMT. To Taiwan, it also means the day the dead knell sounded to the party where her father is the spokes person to. She may be I’ll advised but for those people around her that should advise her. Therefore the Government is taking a serious stand on this seemingly trivial matter but it’s not.
    I’m sure the CCP had the whole arrangements measured and had one over Taiwan.
