What inspired you to be a dancer?

I grew up in a family with a background in music and dance. From a young age, I've always had a passion for singing and dancing. I especially loved Britney Spears when I saw her performances. It's like I have a natural DNA for singing and dancing in my body.

 

Are there any specific experiences or mentors that have had a significant influence on your career in the entertainment industry?

No specific person; I achieved everything step by step through my own experiences.

 

How do you balance your roles as both a dancer and a singer? Are there any unique challenges in managing both careers?

It's actually about getting enough training. I never get tired of doing what I love! I believe that music and dance are inseparable. For me, dance exists for the sake of music.

 

What are some of the most memorable moments or achievements in your career so far?
A few years ago, I participated in a Chinese TV show, "Street Dance of China," which had a significant impact on me.

 

What advice do you have for aspiring dancers, especially those who are just starting their careers?

 
Love yourself. Be yourself, and don't compare yourself to others. Maintain strong beliefs and always keep your passion while embracing different ideas.

Are there any specific goals or aspirations you have for your future career in the entertainment industry?
Lately, I've been particularly interested in creating my own clothing brand that reflects my personal style and spirit. This project is currently in progress, and I hope to share it with everyone soon!

Can you share any insights into the differences between acting and modeling, and how you approach each profession differently?
I like to maintain my uniqueness, showcasing a special stage energy and confidence during performances. When I work as a model, I aim to display my own distinctive charm and personality.

 

What are some of the challenges you've faced in your career, and how did you overcome them?
It's time to move over to a fresh development setup.  I'm currently preparing to embark on a journey in the American market, which is a completely new experience for me. I'm approaching it with a calm and positive attitude.

 

Can you tell us about any upcoming projects or roles you're excited about? (Maybe talk up building up your own fashion brand)

I'm currently preparing my own fashion brand IP, where I'll be blending my own image to design a series of trendy fashion creations. I hope everyone will like them!
