“I tried to place a bid earlier but I was $100 shy of the bidding amount. I didn’t manage to get it today, but I’m going to try again the next tender,” he laments to 8days.sg when we caught up with the 26-year-old during the imaging session of his maiden drama, All Around You, which will be shown on both Ch 8 and Toggle.
And he gets to play the lead in his first acting role — one of the perks of winning Star Search. In All Around You, Zetong stars as Ocean, an unfairly treated part-time waiter who later joins a company of social media experts. His leading lady is fellow up-and-comer Chantalle Ng, aka the daughter of Lin Meijiao.
