Josh Chang was born in Erlin, Changhua, an agricultural town.He came to Taipei to study in China University of Technology.During college, he made his first debut in a commercial.Because of his camera face, he got a lot of auditions and starred in tons of commercials, just like an entertainer.The reason for him to take those jobs was because of his poor family, and being a star was a faster way to make more money.
In KFC & Vedan’s commercials, you could see Josh eating happily.In Chunghwa Telecom and FET Telecom commercials, you could see perky Josh.Besides that,you could see him hesitating in the Watsons commercial, too.All of the above have shown Josh’s ambition to the show biz, and he wants to do better this time.
Generally speaking, if you star in many commercials, people are familiar with your face, but not “you”.However, if you can perform in TV dramas, you will be famous and have some fans.Josh Chang was in a very popular drama “Hanazakarino Kimitachihe”(花樣少男少女).The cast includes Goh Kiat Chun(吳尊), Jiro Wang(汪東城) and Ella Chen.Josh’s role was quite eye-catching, and loved by many fans.Therefore, he decided to take the next step-movie!
The director Hung Hung’s movie “The Wall-Passer”, acted by Josh Chang, and two senior actors Leon Dai(戴立忍) and Lieh Lee(李烈), was a hit in 2007.Later, he became a TV host for a traveling program “台灣全紀錄”.At the age of twenty something, he went almost everywhere in Taiwan.
Josh is gay, and he has never changed his sexual orientation.However, ten years ago, he could only keep it as a secret.For his work, he had to avoid any kinds of implication like this.He couldn’t accept that at all.Besides that, his height(170 cm) limited his development in show biz.
Your height somewhat limit your life.It is a must in show biz.But there is nothing people can do about their height.After many auditions, Josh was tired of the answer “You have a camera face for show biz.However, it’s a pity that you are not tall enough.”Therefore, Josh went to the US, and looked for his new future.
Josh found his happiness in the US………..
In 2015, Josh married to his spouse of the same sex.He thinks being a gay has nothing to do with a person’s personality.In the US, Americans think gays are just different, and nobody stereotypes gays.Thus, all his worries were dispelled.After getting married, he went to Thailand to be a Buddhist monk for two months. Now, he has a perfect life with his love of life and his favorite jobs-being a director as well as film editor.
