What is it with Taiwan and creating groups based on fictional characters the group members portrayed?

I thought F4 was an abberation, but I found out today that the five guys who play the Wu Hu Jiang (a.k.a. Five Tiger Generals) in K.O. 3an Guo were all put in a band called...what else? Wu Hu Jiang...during the filming of the drama and continued as a group since.

That's. Sort. Of. Insane.

Also, because my sole exposure* to these guys is via KO 3an Guo, I am left wondering whether they kick audience members in the teeth in-between songs.

* I've seen George Hu, who plays Guan Yu, in two other things before, and he was also a martial artist in one of them.

Oh, and also Zhou Yu's band Champion is a real-life group, but it was a group before the drama, they just stuck them all in there, which is nowhere nearly as weird.

Oh, and the actresses who play the sisters Da Qiao and Xiao Qiao are sisters in real life. Heh.

In news that do not have to do with KO, Doremii has just moved An Xiang a.k.a. Dark Fragrance from their list of possible future projects to current projects. OMG!!! I feel like I am the only non-Chinese fluent individual who is obsessed with watching it, but obsessed I am. Huang Xiao Ming, my first cdrama crush, in suits and angsting and with a happy ending! Bring it on!

Have the closing theme:
