Zheng Jun (born November 6, 1967) is Chinese rock singer-songwriter. Originally from Xi'an, he attended Hangzhou Institute of Electrical Engineering (renamed Hangzhou Dianzi University). His first album, Naked (赤裸裸), was released by Red Star Productions in 1994, achieving immediate success. He went on to release Third Eye three years later and Bloom two years after that.[1]

Zheng Jun has achieved some fame within the US through his recorded Chinese language version of Coldplay's song "Yellow", entitled "流星" ("shooting star," pinyin: Liú Xīng), which was included in the soundtrack of the 2001 Taiwanese television series Meteor Garden I. He has since released two albums entitled Our Life Is Full Of Sunshine and Chang An Chang An.[1]

In 2007, Zheng joined the judges' panel of Happy Boys Voice, a sequel to Hunan Satellite Television's Super Girl; a controversy developed over his quarrel with fellow judge Yang Erche Namu over her ranking of a contestant from his hometown of Xi'an.[2]
