The state of his hair under the wig shocked many. The top part of his head is nearly bald, with only a few strands of hair. The side of his head has significantly more hair, but it appears to be thinning.

The user captioned the video, “No matter how many times I see it, I burst out laughing. It is so funny.”

People who saw the video were surprised by the idol’s sudden transformation. During his time as an idol, Tao dyed his hair different colors and tried out different styles. Many wondered if the years of hair coloring and heat had finally come to bite him back, leading to the shocking hair condition.

In the movie, Tao plays an A-list actor. He wears a wig to preserve his image, hiding the fact that he is balding. However, after an asteroid fragment strikes Earth, nearly wiping out all of humanity, he allows his scalp to breathe, as he no longer has an image to protect.

Tao did not actually cut or shave his hair for the look. Instead, the costume designer and stylists created a bald head mold for Tao to wear while filming.
