Ethan Ruan Comes Out With New Book; Meets Mongolians in Hawaii
Pre-orders for Ethan Ruan JingTian's new book, Aloha!正在夏威夷/Aloha! Ethan Ruan in Hawaii opened up today. Many entertainers-- including Joe Chen QiaoEn, Niu ChengZe, Eddie Peng YuYan, Janine Chang JunNing, and Joe Cheng YuanChang-- picked up their pens and wrote forewords to support and recommend Ethan's book. Even Sonia Sui Tang, whose boyfriend Yao YuanHao was originally supposed to be featured in this travel book (Ethan replaced him), was included in the list of supporters.
Ethan loves surfing passionately; he specially traveled to the beaches of Waikiki and even admired the statue of one of the legendary greats of surfing, Duke Kahanamoku. He mischievously struck the same pose as Duke, saying, "I really look up to him. I hope that I can be as great as he is!"
Ethan is so popular that, while in The Netherlands on layover, he was actually secretly photographed with his girlfriend, Tiffany Hsu WeiNing. While in Hawaii, he was continuously recognized by Chinese vacationers and asked for his autograph and a picture; there was even a waiter, originally from Mongolia, who told him, "Mongolians also watch Fated To Love You!"
