Career[edit] F4[edit] Chou rose to fame for his role as Hua Ze Lei in the highly popular Taiwan television series Meteor Garden. At the conclusion of the series, Chou along with the other cast members of Meteor Garden; Jerry Yan, Vanness Wu and Ken Chu continued to perform together and released three studio albums as the quartet boy band F4. Music career[edit] Chou was the first F4 member to release his own album Make a Wish in January 2002. This was followed by Remember, I Love You which was released in January 2004. His third album, I'm Not F4 was released in October 2007 and topped Taiwan's major charts for 3 weeks. Acting career[edit] Aside from Meteor Garden, Chou has appeared in Taiwanese series such as Poor Prince and Love Storm, considered to be very "typical" idol dramas. However, with the 2004 television series Mars, Zhou took on a more complex role as a set of twins who suffer from mental illnesses. Zhou considers a turning point in his career. In many interviews, Zhou has pinpointed this as the moment where his interest in acting was truly piqued. Since then, he has taken on increasingly multi-facted roles, such as an ambitious but lonely businessman in Silence, a cranky perfectionist in Sweet Relationship and an awkward but passionate novelist in Wish to See You Again. In 2008, Chou embarked on his first film, Linger alongside Li Bingbing. In 2009, he took a departure from Taiwanese idol dramas and starred in the police drama Black & White. Zhou takes on the challenging role of an emotionally complex policeman with a past that is thrown into a dangerous web of corruption. Due to the popularity of the drama, talks of bringing Black and White to the big screen are currently taking place. Chou was nominated for Best Actor at the 44th Golden Bell Awards for his performance in Black & White.[3] He also won the "Most Popular Actor" for the Taiwan/Hong Kong region at the QQ Entertainment Awards. In 2010, Chou won "Most Popular Taiwanese Actor" at the Seoul International Drama Awards. The same year, he starred in Love You 10,000 Years. The film was the 5th best-selling Chinese film in Taiwan for 2010, and won "Most Popular with the Audience" at the 6th Osaka Asian Film Festival. In 2013, Chou won the Golden Bell Award for Best Actor for his performance in Home.[4] He also starred in the romance film A Moment of Love with Liu Shishi.[5] He went on to star in sequel films Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2, Go Lala Go 2 and Storm (sequel of Z Storm);[6] as well as suspense film Detective Gui and comedy film Two Wrongs Make A Right.[7][8] Chou returned to the small screen after five years in 2018, starring in two ancient dramas Beauties in the Closet and The Flame's Daughter.[9][10] Filmography[edit] Television series[edit]
