Ashin’s brand and Monster’s daughter

On March 3, Mayday will hold a concert – “Just Love It! I’m not willing to leave you all alone” – in Taichung. In honor of the occasion, the band donated NT$10 million to a charity for aiding children in need. Nine years earlier, each member of the band contributed to the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families, “adopting” a child a piece. At a presser yesterday, Guaishou’s “daughter” was present to meet him for the first time; he said he found it very touching. Stone added that he was proud to hear Monster called “Dad,” which suggests there might be some peer pressure in the band from the married guys to the bachelors to consider settling down (meh, you’re young yet, boys. No rush). Anyway, the rest of the guys have “sons.” Guanyou talked about how he’s watched his “son’s” letters transform from illegible to neat, even including English – even using words Guanyou didn’t know. The band’s new donation will go to a new educational fund.

In response to his cousin’s recent arrest, Ashin admitted that he only learned about it on the news himself, but he’s not worried that his family’s legal issues will turn into his problem – he’s just busy with his own work. And that’s probably as much as he needs to say.

Meanwhile, Ashin’s having his own issues with the law – no, he’s not on the wrong side of it. His design brand. Stay Real, is so wildly successful (grosses around NT$100 million last year, with fans in Taiwan, Japan and Korea) that police in Kaohsiung have arrested two people for selling pirated versions of Stay Real products. The inferior quality products were largely trafficked via mainland online shopping portal TaoBao, and thousands of fans of the brand (and the band) have discovered they were cheated. (Though come on, people – Stay Real has dedicated storefronts. What made you think the cheap t-shirts at the local night market were the real deal? I mean, did *anyone* actually believe that?) So lesson to fans out there: no shortcuts. Find an authorized vendor.

    Went back to Taiwan last month to visit family and randomly found myself in front of a Stay Real store. Dropped inside and ended up buying a $30 tshirt (discounted from $40) and still haven’t worn it! It looks too pretty being stuck inside the zipped bag it comes in. I’m glad his store is getting more and more successful, but I must say, the clothing isn’t cheap!
