Japan ruled Taiwan for nearly 40 years. Although the people of Taiwan were controlled by colonial Japanese, however that’s why Taiwan has also developed rapidly (economically and socially) because of Japan's massive modernization drive.


At the beginning of the 20th century, Taiwan began to witness a large number of civilized products such as electric lights, telephones, running water, airplanes etc. The Longitudinal Railway was also opened to traffic in 1908. Women started to go to public schools that receive both Western education and were affected by Western entertainment such as films, phonographs and recordings. In the 1920s in Taiwan there were many folk songs such as the Northern Pipeline, Nan Guan, Taiwanese Opera, folk songs and other folk songs.


Since 1928 Japanese pop records have been imported to Taiwan in large quantities with the permission of the Taiwanese government, howether they were not accepted by more than 90% of Taiwanese residents. In response, Kojiro Cypress, a Japanese-born singer believed that it is absolutely imperative to promote Taiwan's ballads created by Taiwanese writers for a long time. In 1930, the first Taiwanese pop song "Peach Blossomed in Blood" was published, and the first blockbuster in Taiwan. In 1932 a large number of Taiwanese production and publication including "Dancing Times" and other Taiwanese songs came out. In the golden age of Taiwan pop songs, there are still songs such as "Midnight Melancholy," "Spring Dream by the River," and "Rainy Night Flowers."
