🇬🇧 UGLY BEAUTY pre-order version limited to 10,000 copies

UGLY BEAUTY pre-order version is already sold out on online stores since yesterday.

Online stores were restricting orders to 1 or 2 copies per person. Some sites were sold out within minutes. Some even crashed.

Some fans who weren’t able to order went on Sony Taiwan’s Facebook to express their anger, and ask for a reprint.

It seems that it’s not possible because this is such a deluxe version that it’s very expensive to produce, that’s why there were only 10,000 copies.

On February 6th, an earthquake of magnitude 6.4 on the moment magnitude scale hit Taiwan. The epicenter was on the coastline near Hualien, which was the most severely affected area, with a maximum felt intensity of VII (very strong) on the Mercalli intensity scale. At least 17 deaths have been reported, with 282 injured. (from Wikipedia)

On February 9th, a Tzu-Chi Foundation volunteer posted this on her Facebook account (English translation):

“I received a call last night from Jolin Tsai’s agent. She’s not in Taiwan but because of trust and compassion, she’s donating NT$1 million (27 802,69 € or USD$34,122.25) to Tzu-Chi Foundation to deal with the relief work in Hualien. We are very grateful”

This post unexpectedly exposed Jolin’s low-profile act of charity. Since her mother is a volunteer for Tzu-Chi Foundation, and because she’s deeply affected, Jolin decided to assist the victims.
Her agent said that Jolin is abroad at the moment, but she saw this distressed situation, the disaster area and the victims, she felt very grateful to relief workers, and she wanted to do something for Taiwan.
