Cheng Guorong, a beggar in China lived unknown on the streets of Ningbo about half a month ago. He suddenly became famous after an amateur photographer testing his camera lenses posted a set of photos taken of the homeless man online. His family soon found him with the help of these clues.
He became an internet sensation after his photos were seen on net. People were talking about how handsome, cool and sexy looking he is. How he even looks like a Japanese or Korean actor. The people dubbed him as “Brother Sharp” in Chinese.
He became so popular, that people are searching on the streets for him, some hoping to catch a look of him, while some wishes to help him. He was even on the front cover of a magazine ! But this famous beggar gets frightened by the crowd, cries and sort of loses his mind when too many people approach him.
There are many versions of how he ended up on the streets. But the real story is still unknown. One version is that the 34 year old from Poyang county of Jiangxi province, left home for work 11 years ago. His father and wife died in a car accident a year ago, and he has two sons, aged 10 and 11.
According to his relatives, Cheng Guorong headed for Zhejiang’s Ningbo city in 2000 and lost contact with his family three years later. Relatives said Cheng Guorong is a proud man and his mental illness may be linked with the pressures he faced in life.
The frenzy peaked when netizens went onto the streets in search of “Brother Sharp” in the hope of getting some updated pictures of him!
