It’s a well-known fact that Taiwanese superstar Jay Chou is loaded… which shouldn’t really come as a surprise given he’s one of the reigning kings — if not the reigning king — of Mandopop. We also know how the rich get richer: through (successful) investments.
Recently, an interesting report about the 41-year-old, who has a net worth of NT$6bil (S$283mil), popped up on Taiwan’s Apple Daily. It claims that Jay secretly met with billionaire tycoon Lin Ming-hsiung to discuss a big business proposal (and no, it has nothing to do with music).
Ming-hsiung is a pretty influential figure, to say the least. He is the chairman of real estate development company Yuanlih Group, supermarket chain Pxmart, as well as Hwatai Bank, and is worth an estimated NT$66.4bil (S$3.1bil).
