It’s hard to understand that the Taiwanese White House across the strait invites “hot girls to dance”. I know a lot about cultural matters. I only knew that there was a local company called Benjamin Aidoo who would carry the coffin dance service, and add some fine choreography and costumes to do a good job. It attracted an interview from BBC News. Finally, it became popular on the Internet and became well-known globally. Hot spread explosive things.
