Vivian in Ancient Series --
Vivian won first place in a teen beauty contest, sponsored by a Taiwanese TV-variety show in 1990.
A Taiwanese-born singer, actress and model, she made her music debut in 1991 at the age of 16 as a member of a female trio named ShaoNuDui (Literally, Girl's Group). This group, however, never achieved popularity and Vivian temporarily parted from singing to explore the opportunities available to her in modeling and acting. After going to Japan and achieving some popularity, she once again entered the music industry starting in 1996 by releasing a few singles and then her first solo album, all in Japanese. It's remarkable enough that she became famous in a culture and language different from her own.
Learning one foreign language must not have satisfied her enough, as she went through a speed course on "how to speak Korean in one week" and released a Korean music album in the latter part of 1996. Due to rising stardom in Japan as well as a multi-million dollar contract from her planning agency, Vivian left her activities in Korea relatively unpromoted and focused back to her activities in Japan. Halfway through 1997, she joined two comedian program hosts to form a music group called the Black Biscuits. Black Biscuits was formed as a rival group to another popular Japanese music group named Pocket Biscuits. Now, she has returned to the Chinese music scene once again, releasing her debut solo Chinese album in Taiwan recently.

She's a great singer too!
I first saw Vivian in "Don't Love Me"(Bie ai wo), a modern collaboration with Hu Ge. I absolutely adored her character so much, she has left a lasting impact on me, I'll always think of her as "Feiyang", who was one of the best female characters, in my opinions, ever created!
I really want her to take on a full Ancient Chinese Series. I think she would look amazing with the hairstyles! I hope she decides to do it one day.
