TAIPEI: S.H.E's Selina Jen's facial bandages were removed on Saturday and the singer saw herself for the first time since a filming accident left her with severe burns on her body, said Jen's father on his micro-blog.
"Selina's burned face was a deep red. She joked that she looks like Guan Gong (a popular Chinese warrior deity who is always depicted with a red face)," he wrote.
Jen's father added that she even asked her fiance, Richard Chang, who idolised Guan Gong, to address her as 'Idol! Idol!'.
While Jen appeared to be in good spirits, her father said he could not help but get emotional when he saw her in this condition and ended up being consoled by her instead.
Jen suffered third-degree burns over up to 40 per cent of her body when explosives went off earlier than planned on the set of the Chinese television drama "I Have A Date With Spring" on October 22.
Since the accident, many of Jen's fans were concerned that she would be disfigured, but the 29-year-old pop star had maintained that she was not worried.
Taiwan media reported that she had told her S.H.E group mate Hebe Tien last week that she "once had beauty" and that "if there are scars in the future" she would treat them as "a mark in [her] life".
Jen's label HiM International Music had since demanded an explanation from Hunan Television, who invited Jen to participate in the ill-fated television project, but raised questions about the accuracy of the report they later received.
Hunan Television has promised to investigate the matter further.
