Dansou is a term for women who dress in japanese mens fashion. This trend has become quite popular in Japan and even China. Yachen Xing a 23 year old student from Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University in China, has been stirring up a lot of attention on Weibo (China’s version of Twitter). Yachen’s photos of her striking handsome looks has gone viral. She has been named “China’s Most Handsome Girl-Hunk In History” according to Chinese internet sites. Her boyish looks have helped this young girl to become a successful male model. Yachen’s fan-following on Weibo call her their “Prince Charming”. Sorry, ladies (or gents) this handsome girl is taken. See her handsome photos below.
Another popular dansou, is a Japanese Pop Idol called Fudanjuku. All eight members cross dress in their alter-ego male counter part while performing on stage. This group started off as Nakano Fudan Juku a J-pop girl-band, but slow sales and stale popularity in the already saturated J-Pop market turned these gals into the popular J-Pop Dansou artists. Now these cross dressing gals are popular than ever. You can see them here.
