Jiro`s Past

Jiro's father was a regular manager for a building, and his mother didn't work because of old age and bad eyesight. They had Jiro when they were around 40. Maybe because of being born late, Jiro's health wasn't very good, but his mother and father loved him a lot. Later, Jiro's father had diabetes, so he went in and out of the hospital for 5 years. However, Jiro's father still passed away when Jiro was 17. Before he died, he said to Jiro: "You have to take up the responsibility of this family." And from then on, Jiro was the man of the house.

Probably it was since then, to support the family and to return loans [When his father was still alive, he borrowed aprox. 6 million yuan from the bank to buy the house they now live in.] He began to take part-time jobs everywhere, sometimes he worked 3 shifts a day. He worked in a bar, in a zoo, and some people even says that he worked to transport coal! At around that time, Jiro started to model part-time. Then the BMG Company saw potential in him, so they were going to sign Jiro, Jay Chou, and Jordan Chen to the 3-J Plan. But sadly, the 911 incident happened, part of the company's market was corrupted, and of course, as a new idol, Jiro was fired on the spot. But Jiro didn't give up, he signed another company, but after he found out that they weren't interested in making him into an idol, he felt completely beat. So he joined the Army for 2 years. When he came back, he decided to be a Modeling Assistant, since he doesn't have the courage to return to the stage and make his dreams come true anymore. At that time, he was pretty well known among the Taiwan Entertainment Market, everyone knew there was this guy who had a guitar on his back and followed the Modeling Stylist everywhere. Also at this time he met a lot of Commercial Producers, so later he began to act in commercials.

Then one time he met the President of the Ke Mi Company, but when they wanted to sign him to a contract, he hesitated. Because of so many failures before, he couldn't help but feel worried and afraid. Then he remembered something a person said to him before: "When you're old, you're going to say to your son, son, your dad had a dream, but he didn't have the courage to chase it ..."

When he remembered what this person said to him, Jiro got the courage to try again. Then shortly afterwards, Jiro was given the opportunity to act in ISWAK as Ah Jin, and WAHLA. Jiro got his big break!
