Known as the "Queen of Idol Dramas",[1] Joe is known for her roles in The Prince Who Turns into a Frog (2005), Fated to Love You (2008) and The Queen of SOP (2012). She was nominated at the 43rd Golden Bell Awards for her role in Fated to Love You

In 2013, her popularity rose in China, where she gained a large number of fans for her role as Dongfang Bubai in the Chinese wuxia series Swordsman. Chen also entered the Forbes China Celebrity 100 List for the first time.[2] She established her status as an A-list-er with her roles in popular dramas and movies The Monkey King (2014), Cruel Romance (2015) and Candle in the Tomb (2016). As of 2015, she is listed by Forbes as the 61st most influential celebrity in mainland China.[3]


2001–2004: Career beginnings[edit]

Joe Chen began working as a model and assistant in 2001. She entered the entertainment industry after winning 1st place on Sanlih E-Television's talent show.[4]

In 2002, she began her acting career by taking on a supporting role in the television drama, Lavender. She also became a host for SET variety shows Zhong Guo Na Me Da and Zong Yi Qi Jian, alongside famous Taiwanese hosts Jacky Wu and NONO.[5]

After being neglected by her company for six months, she attracted the attention of SET's executive Zong Limei, who cast her in 100% Senorita (2003). This was her first leading role. The drama became the highest rated Taiwanese drama then, and also achieved moderate success overseas.[6]

In 2004, Joe debuted with Taiwanese girl group 7 Flowers.

2005–2008: Rising popularity[edit]

In 2005, Joe had her breakout role in The Prince Who Turns into a Frog. The drama had a peak rating of 8.05, dethroning the previous record held by Meteor Garden to become the highest rated Taiwanese idol drama.[7]

From 2006 to 2007, Joe began to host Taiwanese variety programs Treasure Hunter and Stylish Man - The Chef. She also starred in the dramas A Game About Love and Ying Ye 3 Jia 1.

In 2008, Joe starred in Fated to Love You opposite Ethan Juan. The series beats Joe's previous drama, The Prince Who Turns into a Frog to become the highest rated Taiwanese idol drama.[8] Broadcasting rights of the show were sold to 15 countries. The drama was also covered by America's Wall Street Journal.[9] Joe was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Series at the 43rd Golden Bell Awards[10] and was named "Queen of Idol Dramas" by Taipei Times.[1]

2009–2012: Forays in China[edit]

In 2009, Joe was cast in the romance drama The Girl in Blue, adapted from an online novel. This also marks her first forays into mainland China.[11] The series was broadcast on Hunan TV in 2010.[12]

In 2011, Joe made her feature film debut in Barbara Wong's romance film, The Allure of Tears.

In 2012, Joe made her return to idol dramas after 4 years in The Queen of SOP. The drama was the highest rated drama in its time slot for the year, and also received positive reviews from audience.[13] She also released an OST for the drama titled "Like to be Lonely", which topped the Baidu Chinese Music Charts for two weeks.

2013–2016: Mainstream popularity and Theater debut[edit]

Joe rose to mainstream popularity in China after starring in the Chinese wuxia drama Swordsman, adapted from Louis Cha's novel The Smiling, Proud Wanderer. She portrayed the anti-heroine Dongfang Bubai. Though there were initial doubts to her characters (as Dongfang Bubai is a male in the original novel), Joe later won the hearts of the audience through her complex and rich portrayal of her character.[14] Joe experienced a rise in popularity, and won the Most Popular Actress award at the 5th Anhui TV Drama Awards.

The same year, Joe made her debut in musical theater, starring as the female lead in The Woman on the Breadfruit Tree, based on Amy Cheung's novel of the same name.[15] She was nominated as Best New Actress at the 4th One Drama Presentation for her performance.[16]

In 2015, Joe starred in her first period drama, Cruel Romance alongside Huang Xiaoming. The drama achieved high ratings,[21] and also became a popular topic online with more than 1 billion topics discussion.[22] Joe was awarded Best Actress (Modern) at the 17th Huading Awards for her performance.[23] The same year, Joe starred in another period drama, Destined to Love You, written by Tong Hua.[24]

The same year, Joe returned to theater and reprised her role in The Woman on the Breadfruit Tree. She received acclaim for her performance, and was awarded Best Actress at the 4th Denny Awards.[25] She also made a cameo appearance in the popular youth film, Our Times as the adult version of the female protagonist.[25] Joe next starred in romantic comedies Youth Never Returns and The Queens and cultural drama Forever Love.[26][27][28]

In 2016, Joe paired up with Wang Kai for modern romance drama Stay with Me. This is also her first time as a television producer.[29] She co-starred with Jin Dong in the web drama Candle in the Tomb, adapted from the novel Ghost Blows Out the Light. The series received praises for its exciting and fast-paced storyline, actors' performance as well as staying true to the novel.[30]
