Biography

陳冠希/Edison Chen is a popular Hong Kong Chinese teen idol. He was an artist of the Emperor Entertainment Group (EEG). Edison Chen’s contract with EEG ended in 2005.

Background

Edison Chen was born on October 7th, 1980. He was raised in Richmond (Vancouver) and graduated high school at Robert Cecilia Palmer Secondary School (apparently, Edison was a slacker at school but was lucky enough to graduate). He is currently living in Hong Kong and works in Asian cinema, music and fashion. He owns a lifestyle company named CLOT, which works with labels and artists from all around the world gathering them all together in unison in the Greater Asian region, although they are based in the Hong Kong region. Edison’s official online blog states that “He is just a normal everyday guy like you, but only his job is to entertain…”

In Canada, he searched for a successful way to become a celebrity. Seeing how he failed to receive any recording contracts within Canada or the States because of his Chinese ancestry, he later returned to Hong Kong, and with the help of his father and networks, he was able to make it big, signing a deal with the EEG company. Since then, he has sold over a million in CDs, involved with numerous films and advertisements, including Levi’s Jeans and Samsung Cellphones.

Prior to his music career, he went to High School in Hong Kong International School (HKIS) in the class of 1998. He also attended high school at R. C. Palmer Secondary School in Richmond, BC.
