Whyte, known for her distinctly chill style, kept her appearance a closely guarded secret in her past performances and public appearances, choosing to perform in large hats and sunglasses to hide her face. Her languid voice and laid-back "chillhop" style, characterized by a combination of musical influences from a broad range of genres have seen her carve out a unique niche for herself as she has gone on to capture the nation's attention.

Located in Taipei, the Taiwan Comic Base was renovated from an old building to serve as a foundational cornerstone for developing Taiwan's comics industry. The base now displays and sells original Taiwan comic products on the first floor, holds exhibitions and events on the second and third floors, and uses the fourth floor for comic artists to create new works, interact with peers, and cultivate assistants.
