Further information which may be relevant. 

In Chinese, the underline is a punctuation mark for proper names (專名號, 专名号;
pinyin: zhuānmínghào; literally “proper name mark”, used for personal and
geographic names). Its meaning is somewhat akin to capitalization in English
and should never be used for emphasis; however, due to the influence of
English computing, the underline is now sometimes used for emphasis. A wavy
underline (書名號, 书名号; pinyin: shūmínghào; literally “book title mark”) serves
a similar function, but marks names of literary works instead of proper

In the case of two or more adjacent proper names, each individual proper
name is separately underlined, so there should be a slight gap between the
underlining of each proper name.
