Joanne Tseng (Chinese: 曾之喬; born 17 November 1988) is a Taiwanese actress, singer and television host.

Early life[edit]

Tseng was born on 17 November 1988 in Jianshi, Hsinchu, Taiwan. She has an older sister, Chih-ying (曾之萦). Both of her parents are teachers.

Her family are from the Atayal tribe of indigenous Taiwanese aboriginals.

Tseng graduated from the National Taiwan University of Arts with a Drama & Theater degree. She plays the piano, flute and violin.


In 2002, Tseng along with Esther Liu formed a Mandopop duo called Sweety and they debuted in 2003. At the time of their debut both Tseng and Liu were only 14 years old. Sweety were active from 2003 to 2006 and the duo released 3 studio albums and 2 soundtracks, but Sweety went on hiatus as a group since 2007 when Liu went to Paris to study for a few years, while Tseng has since continued with her solo career.

Apart from singing, both members have also acted in film and television series. Since going solo Tseng has appeared and starred in numerous television series in Taiwan and mainland China. She is currently signed to HIM International Music.

In 2017, Joanne re-launched her singing career by releasing her solo debut MV, eleven years after Sweety released their final album.
