Jessie Chung has signed a three-year contract with Beijing CTV Star this afternoon. She is expected to start progress in China after her concert next year. Prior to that, she will start recording her English EP in Australia next week.
Jessie Chung has caught the attention of Beijing CTV Star Culture Development Co. Ltd and is officially the respective company’s artist. Her musical talent and a series of outstanding achievements have roused the interest of Beijing CTV Star; and after witnessing a night of dazzling performance at Jessie Chung Love Unity Concert, the company is especially convinced and assured by Jessie’s irresistible stage charm.
CTV Star Culture’s talent manager Huang Yan expressed, “China is now very talent-oriented. Only with multi-talents can one be established here.” Although she did not elaborate much on which direction Jessie is currently heading to, but she did share that new media is the trump cards for success, and viewer ratings are considerably high, chances of ratings explosion are very possible. Huang Yan also said, “Jessie’s own unique quality is unseen for in China right now. She has a knack of words and is also fond of China’s culture. This is the best foundation.”
Jessie said, “I appreciate the chance to progress in China, because the plans over there really interest me. After it’s become official, Eric Moo is now my senior brother, I’ve always admired him.” When asked of the directions she will be taking, Jessie answered, “I will give everything a try. This is a great learning opportunity.” Jessie’s original plan is to advance her singing career in the US, but the string of offers by Beijing CTV Star are difficult to dismiss, so in the end, she has decided for China.
When she was questioned on whether her husband will be following her, Jessie replied sweetly, “My husband is currently in the yacht business, most of his works are through the web. Now he has special interest in China’s automotive industry, so he will be accompanying me this time. But his Mandarin is quite rusty. At the moment, he is learning from the dictionary diligently.”
Through these years, Jessie has neverending ties with China. As recounted, she received her PhD in clinical medicine (oncology) from Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine; and cast as a lead role alongside Jackie Lui, Liu Hua, Law Kar-ying, and Cheng Pei-pei in Faces, filmed in Nanchang, China.
