While celebrating the 2015 Taiwan Lantern Festival, the organizers invited aboriginal dance groups to perform in one of the display areas. And guess what? Something magical happened.
Yang Junjie, the sound controller, who is a member of the Atayal tribe, saw a 14-year-old performer who reminded him of his missing younger brother.
Another Atayal staff thought they looked alike and believed they could be brothers, so they decided to confirm this with the director of the dance group and found out that the boy really was Yang’s half-brother, Yang Jingyan.
The organizers then arranged a reunion for them on the stage. After being out of touch with each other for over a decade, the pair finally met during an “Atayal hunting dance” performance.
It was a particularly big surprise for the younger brother because
apparently he was too little to remember what his elder brother looked like when they were separated.
He broke down in tears on the stage and the audience was deeply moved.
