Xiao Zhu's latest album 'Fashion Man'

Xiao Zhu's latest album 'Fashion Man''

‘潮男正傳’ tells it all about this celebrity who is now the most popular Pop Idol in asia and some even termed him as the ‘King of Dance.’ He won tons of awards in his singing career bagging another 3 awards here at the Singapore Entertainment awards this month:

  • Most popular male singer
  • Most Stylish hunk
  • SPH media award – Best Artiste of the Year (all-round)

羅志祥 aka Xiao Zhu is someone who works really hard in his career and goes beyond just entertaining people and satisfying the requirements of his fans. He is today one of the most influential person among the younger generations shaping the fashion and value systems of young people. we can always see this in his interview when he said that he wants to change the life of people through the hardwork he put in in his music.

haha. Xiao Zhu is the One celebrity in the world that can Act, Sing, Dance, host etc. on TV. you can never find someone more talented than him in the chinese media business. I have been  noticing him since my secondary school days (i am in uni now) and i was so crazy that i rushed home before 5pm on weekdays just to watch him in 娛樂百分百 whether is there lessons or not. Imagine telling your friends that you are going to ‘pang sei’ them just to catch your favorite TV show. It was totally insane. Ever since, I was keeping up with him  and he sort of accompanied me through my schooling days.

This picture described the journey of Xiao Zhu since his first group album with the boy group ‘The Four Heavenly Kings'(first person on the left), team Romeo( 2nd person). The Third person was the new embarkation in his career and album by going solo after a series of unhappiness and negative remarks that he is ‘out-dated.’ The fourth was the new look in the album 舞所不在. And finally the last was his makeover in the latest album that sold more than 12000 copies in taiwan alone.

Xiao Zhu is not like michael jackson who hit the world immediately. He is someone who had been through the darkest period of the chinese show-biz culture that once a celebrity is not appealing anymore, he/she will be taken out of the rat race and left to survive on his own. He was then left to become the host of an unpopular show that he had to be downgraded to be toyed by other celebrities by making fun of him. His career was further exacerbated  by debts that he borrowed. It was really sad that he needs to borrow money from friends to stay alive. 

However, his life changed after his first debut album in 2003 that proved many wrong with their judgement that he could no longer stand on the stage. The second album ‘達人Show’ soon came climbing up the taiwan’s music chart with song ‘戀愛達人’ hitting the number 1 spot for weeks. 

show-luo-expert-showSoon, movies and dramas producer came hunting for him. Commercial advertisments too, even hollywood came knocking on the door as he became the chinese version of Zac Efron.

yup. He is now the most sort-after celebrity in all areas and even though i am in university now, i am still watching his shows and dramas. His past experiences in life had molded him into the person he is today that is focus, energy-driven with a never say die attitude, and a filial son who treasures his relationship with his mum.
