An old couple from the Taiwanese city of Taichung has become an online sensation; as they posed with clothes people forgot in their decades-old laundry shop, after their grand kid suggested creating an Instagram page that soon went viral.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

🎉抽獎啦!一點來自孫子的感謝小禮物 🎉 It's GIVEAWAY time! Here’s small gifts prepared by the grandson 先說方法:只要你在下面留言一句想對萬吉和秀娥說的話,或者想對你自己阿公阿嬤說的話,就可以有抽獎的資格!不需要你去tag誰(當然如果你要推薦給你朋友也很棒!) How to get it: Leave a short message below. It could be anything you would like to say to Wan-Ji & Sho-Er, or anything you would like to say to your own grandparents. No need to tag anyone! (But it’d be great if you really want to. Please feel free to tag and share.) 在滿1萬followers的時候,我已經非常開心,所以自掏腰包做了30個小禮物,想送給喜歡萬吉秀娥和我們「萬秀的洗衣店」的朋友,歡迎大家加入「萬秀的洗衣店」,但沒想到等到做好的時候,人數居然已經23萬,可是我卻還是只有30個小禮物... 這是一個刺繡的貼布章,圖案來自我們家的洗衣機和我們衣物包裝袋上的中文字,我沒學過設計,可能畫的不是那麼好(苦笑),但這可以黏或者縫在你的任何一件舊衣服、舊包包,希望傳達一個概念:「讓大家也能夠透過一點小變化,就讓舊衣服產生新生命!」當然,也成為我們「萬秀的洗衣店」的世界特派員工! 但很抱歉只做了30個,假如留言的人數超過幾千人,或許我會考慮在我能負擔的範圍內多做一些。 來吧!留下你想給萬吉秀娥的話,或者你想分享你對於你爺爺奶奶的話吧! At the beginning, I was so happy when the account had reached 10k followers. So, I’d been trying to express my gratitude by preparing some small gifts to our friends, to those who like ’Wan-Ji‘, ‘Sho-Er', and our 'Wan-Sho Laundry'. And when I finally managed to get those gifts from the manufacturer, the followers had already hit 230k, which was way more than I’d expected! But, there’re only 30 small gifts to give away. This is a badge patch. The design is inspired by our old washing machine and the words on our laundry bag. It’s written 'Wan-Sho Laundry' in Chinese. I'm not a designer, so it's probably not a pretty design (embarrassed laugh). This can be glued or sewn onto any of your old clothes or bags. I would like to share the idea that “By a little change, we can give old clothes a new life'. With this patch, everyone can be a spreader of the spirit of 'Wan-Sho Laundry' all around the world! Again, there are only 30 gifts in total. If more there’s more than a thousand comments, I’d love to do one more giveaway if I can afford it. Here we go! Leave a message for Wan-Ji & Sho-Er, or write a message to your own grandparents! #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents - - _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfit

Photos of the old couple modeling while wearing the forgotten pieces have impressed more than 500k Instagram users who have decided to follow their account.

According to BBC, neither the couple nor their grandson Reef Chang expected people to love their photos this much, as the whole idea was for the 80-something-year-old couple to have a "project" to work on in order to disrupt their daily routine.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

6/27-7/27,讓萬吉和秀娥多麼驚奇一個月! 秀娥:「不要覺得自己老就想每天休息,因為這樣,只會讓你越來越老!」 一個月前的今天,姑且一試的發了照片,沒想到讓萬吉秀娥從不知道Instagram 的老人,變成了會看留言的年紀大的人! 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 針織衫:至少5-10年未取針織衫 上衣:萬吉私服T-SHIRT 短褲:萬吉私服工作褲 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 上衣:至少3-5年長版落肩T-shirt 裙子:秀娥30年以上私服 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿❤️ From 6/27 to 7/27, what a surprising month for Wan-Ji and Sho-Er! Sho-Er said, “Don’t just keep resting every day because you think you’re old. This will only make you older!” One month ago, I’d posted some photos and unexpectedly turned Wan-Ji and Sho-Er from old peoples that didn’t even know Instagram to someone that read through comments! 👴🏼Wan-Ji(160 cm) Sweater: unclaimed for 5-10 years Top: Wan-Ji’s own T-shirt Bottom: Wan-Ji’s own working pants 👵🏼Sho-Er(155 cm) Top: Long, oversize T-shirt, unclaimed for 3-5 years Dress: Sho-Er’s own dress, worn for at least 30 years 💡Remember to pick up your clothes ❤️ #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents - - _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfits

The Instagram account has gathered momentum as people expressed their joy looking at the happy couple's photos.

Additionally, many social media users revealed that this Instagram page "has reminded them of their need to spend more time with their grandparents." Some also wished they would still enjoy life as much as the Taiwanese new models when they are at their age.
