This post is in response to a request from DurianDave recently.
A 'male Fan Bingbing' (男范冰冰), Liu Zhu, was recently a contestant in the popular Happy Boy talent contest. Under great pressure and controversy, the contestant was voted off the program. (Danwei), (ChinaHush), 2
Earlier this year, I posted about Kong Ming who also caught much media attention as a 'male Fan Bingbing'. (NowNews) There are other female celebrity imitators and it is becoming a cultural phenomenom of sorts from what I can gather. Or else, it's a reflection of the news I read. One of the phrases I've seen describing it on mainland media sites is “伪娘" or 'fake lady' (Pseudo Mother, in Google translation-speak). Probably more than you care to know.
[Updates] AF: Kong Ming had plastic surgery?,
