25 September 2013 / 3 years 3 weeks ago

Noli Tseng, the niece of Japanese-Taiwanese hearthrob Takeshi Kaneshiro, is determined to step of her uncle's shadow -- even if she has to bare a bit of flesh.

The 23-year-old, who is carving out a name for herself in the Japanese entertainment industry, has left observers stunned after a jaw-dropping preview of her recent photoshoot for KATANA10 magazine showed off her curvacious figure, reported Takung.

In an interview, she said: "I want to prove to others that I can make it on my own, and not rely on my uncle's reputation anymore.

"When I decided to join the entertainment industry, I didn't seek his advice and even though I'm working in Japan right now, I'm not even in close contact with him."

However, she did clarify that the lack of constant communication between the two family members was not due to animosity but rather, her insistence on making it on her own.

She also spoke about how she initially felt awkward when posing in a bikini but slowly warmed up to it, and ended up enjoying it immensely.
