CareerEdit

Chan got his start by enrolling in the TVB Dancers' Training Class in 1985. Soon after graduation, he joined a few of the studio's troupes that would accompany popular singers during their live performances. He worked with artists such as Alan Tam, Leslie Cheung, and Anita Mui before being invited by a producer to make a record of his own.

In 1994, he made his film debut with Twenty Something. Chan has since received several Hong Kong Film Award nominations: two for his role in He's a Woman, She's a Man (1994), and one each for Heaven Can't Wait (1995) and Big Bullet (1996). With 1996's Young and Dangerous, Chan established himself as a mainstay of the triad genre. The film was a huge success, and led to nine sequels and spinoffs before the series concluded in 2000. In 2005, Chan starred alongside Jay Chou as Kyoichi Sudo in Initial D.

Musically, Chan is known for bringing a hip hop flavour to cantopop. With his recent releases beginning around 2002, he has rapped and added hip hop beats to his music. His hip hop style has brought him new fans, although some Hong Kong fans have accused him of acting "black." He continues to incorporate R&B and hip hop sounds into his music today.

Chan has spoken several lines of Hakka in some of his movies. He is the first singer to include Hakka verse in a Mandarin song, in "Heartless You", (算你恨) 2003.

Personal lifeEdit

Chan married actress Cherrie Ying (應采兒) on Valentine's Day, 14 February 2010, at Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas,[1] though they intended to have their reception in Hong Kong.[2]

They had their first child, a son, born on 1 July 2013.

Political stance and controversiesEdit

In 2016 Hong Kong Legislative Election, Chan had openly endorsed pro-Beijing candidate Junius Ho.[3]

In May 2019, the government had introduced the extradition bill, which had triggered huge protest around the world. Upon being asked, Chan said he did not know but nevertheless sign the supportive petition. [4]

In August 2019, he posted a video on Instagram criticizing the protestors as 打靶仔 (People that should go to die), stating that he would rather being ruled by Beijing but not being impeded by the protestors.[5]

In March 2021, Chan expressed his support for cotton from Xinjiang, after several companies stopped purchasing the cotton due to concerns about human rights violations.[6]
