Abstract: There are many similarities in political development between Taiwan and Hong Kong, the most prominent part of which is the prevalence of populism. The populism on both sides has its strong peculiarity as it emerges with regional democra-tization and, what’s more, is built on the imagination of “the other”. This peculiarity is mainly reflected in three features, namely the anti “the other” emotion and localization tendency, the social overall tearing of super “elite --- mass” division and the democratic politics kidnapped by extreme democratic aspirations. On the other hand, these three aspects interact with each other and mutually reinforcing. And it is clear that the peculiarity of the populism in Taiwan and Hong Kong has in turn aggravated the abnormal development of the democratic politics in both places.
