She’s lent her voice to soundtracks of famous Taiwanese dramas, and her Mandarin cover of the theme for Korean hit “Descendants of the Sun” went viral.

But amid her blossoming music career in Taiwan, songbird Kelly Poon stays grounded and regularly connects with fans over social media through specially curated music videos and Facebook Live.

We caught up with the busy star to talk tech hacks and favourite apps.

Hi Kelly, what’s up for you recently?

I recently attended Viral Fest Asia in Bali and also launched a special video for National Day. I’ve also been busy with performing, writing songs and I’ll be recording more covers in the next few months.

What made you decide to cover of the “Descendants of the Sun” soundtrack?

When I’m not working, I love watching dramas. While watching “Descendants of the Sun”, I thought of covering the soundtrack because I really enjoyed it. It was a pleasant surprise to know that it was so well-received by my fans.

How has technology changed the way you interact with fans?

It has definitely brought us closer. In my Facebook Live videos, I share my “no makeup, makeup” look, what I cook for dinner and so on. Even when there’s nothing going on, I just chatter [on video]. Every live video session is a great way to connect with fans!
