Short men have found another reason to believe that height does not matter thanks to a couple proving their existence in a now-viral photo.
Earlier this month, Jason Chen, a Taiwanese American singer and YouTuber, shared a picture of himself in an elegant suit with his girlfriend — actor, dancer and model Lucia Liu — on Instagram. “I don’t need to flirt. I will seduce you with my awkwardness,” Chen captioned the post, adding hashtags such as #tallgirls and #shortpeopleproblems.
It’s unclear how tall Liu actually is, but Chen’s followers have known as early as 2011 that he stands 5 feet and 4 inches (162.56 centimeters). The couple first met at an overseas “Voice of China” contest several years ago, where Chen was a judge and Liu was a contestant. “When I first saw him I thought he was really cute,” Liu said in a Q&A video on Chen’s channel, Music Never Sleeps. “A lot of people told me about him when I was backstage. We were like, ‘Oh my god, Jason Chen’s here, you know? He’s a great singer!’ I was really surprised, and when I saw him I just thought he was really cute.” It was not difficult, however, to notice Chen’s height at first sight. “But he’s a little short, you know. It’s just a fact,” Liu added. “But that was my first impression.” Chen’s post on June 7 is only one of many where they can be seen standing side-by-side, showing the difference in their height.
But as wise ones would say, such a thing does not matter in the face of true love — and netizens now say that Chen has inspired them.
The post also made rounds on Facebook, where short gentlemen are being tagged by friends for a boost in self-confidence.

This will be my 4th restaurant opening as a manager. Anyone that's been a part of opening knows just how difficult it is. As stressful as it has been, the 3 sous chefs have really made my life easier. We still have much more to do but cannot thank you enough! Now more people can come and enjoy the famous general tso cauliflower at @theformosa
Asian man DISCOVERS long LOST civilization of pale, sun-sensitive, and pointy nosed humanoids. 😛
The peoples on the western edge of ASIA have exotic customs, and, in some places, surprisingly good food. Locals think their PENINSULA is a CONTINENT called Europe. 😅
Asian man suspects this may be the origins of the people known as "white devils" who colonized the world. 😉
Legendary figures have come out of this place such as Aristotle, Hernán Cortés, Napoleon, Hitler, and EPIC SAX GUY! 😂
Satire aside, #tb to when I was in Amsterdam. I really liked this city. I want to go back someday for longer. Maybe see Lisboa, Venice, and Istanbul too.
Channeling Sailor Mars! 💫
Low-key always felt obligated to like her because she was the only Sailor Scout that looked like me. Neptune is still my favorite though (also super appropriate for a Pisces)!
