Taiwan Ah Cheng's Chen Zhaorong, Whose E-Commerce Biz Has An Annual Turnover Of S$4.9Mil, Says He’s “No Longer An Artiste”

Taiwanese actor Chen Zhaorong, who is dubbed the “First Brother of Local Dramas” in Taiwan, shot to fame over two decades ago thanks to TV series Taiwan Ah Cheng, but it seems he may be done with life in front of the camera.

The 53-year-old recently penned a rather pensive Facebook post looking back on his life and career, which ended with a puzzling declaration that he’s “no longer an artiste”.

Zhaorong has cut down on acting roles significantly in recent years to focus his efforts on the lucrative world of e-commerce live streaming, with his online seafood shop reportedly achieving an annual turnover of more than NT$100mil (S$4.9mil).
