Yu Zhenhuan’s claim to fame for now is that he is the hairiest man in all of China. Hair covers 96 percent of Yu’s body. The 26-year-old Yu is candid and unembarrassed about a condition that has made him a phenomenon in China since he was born.
A stringy black fuzz mats every inch of his lanky frame, save for the palms of his hands and the soles of his feet. And Yu has chosen to make use of his unique physical appearance, placing photos of himself on his Web site — or — as part of a drive to land a recording contract and become China’s newest rock star. He recuperated in a hospital ward from ear surgery. He had the operation in Shanghai recently to remove hair that was impeding his hearing, doctors said.
