Hsieh Ho-hsien (Chinese: 謝和弦; pinyin: Xiè Héxián; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Siā Hô-hiân, also known as A Chord or R.Chord; born April 15, 1987) is a Taiwanese singer and actor. A Chord is known mainly for writing the lyrics of the popular song, "Gou Ai," that was written for the purpose of the Taiwanese drama, The X-Family. Currently in show of K.O.3an Guo, Pets Cheng is singing a renewed version of Gou Ai. There are also parody versions of Gou Ai throughout the K.O.3an Guo episodes, mainly starting from episode nine.


A Chord was named Ho-hsien (和弦), meaning "chord," by his grandfather. A Chord started to play the guitar at a very young age due to the influence of his grandfather, who he looked up to as a role model.

By the year 2004, aged 16, A Chord had composed around 50-60 songs and won a songwriting competition. He attended Guess Guess Guess during the competition period, and was favourably received by the audience. The prize was a contract with HIM International Music, but A Chord did not take up the offer of the contract and instead, went to play underground music with his band, SEA-LEVEL (海平面).

A Chord made his first acting debut in KO One (终极一班) as Shayu (鲨鱼), following up with many other appearances in other Taiwanese dramas, notably as his character, aChord in Taiwanese drama The X-Family (终极一家), in which he appeared as a person with supernatural powers tasked with the responsibility of protecting the Dimension. He then played the character Dashu (大树) in Hanazakarino Kimitachihe (花样少年少女) in the year 2006.


A Chord has composed many songs for Taiwanese dramas such as KO One's "Zhōngjí yī bān" (終極一班), where he helped to write the lyrics such as, Gou Ai (够爱) from The X-Family (2007), and recently, "Nǐ céngjīng ràng wǒ xīndòng" (你曾經讓我心動) from They Kiss Again (2007).

He has also helped Danson Tang write the song "Zhǐ qiàn yījù wǒ ài nǐ" (只欠一句我愛你) in Danson's 1st debut album, Ai Wo (愛我).

He has recently recorded more songs such as "Duì nǐ ài bù wán" (對你愛不完) and "Guòláirén" (過來人).


A Chord's album Nothing But A Chord (雖然很芭樂) was released on April 17, 2009.
