All updates on all things Fahrenheit! From HQ pictures to videos of their most recent events all the way to their blogs & weibo updates. Enjoy! (:
I guess you guys can kind of get the hint that I am leaving since I haven’t been updating. I can’t keep up with this tumblr anymore, I just don’t have the time like I used to. It takes a lot for me to update on all four members and I really can’t do it anymore. I started college and when I come home, I’m just too tired to do anything even though I should be studying. So, thank you to every one of my 1,649 followers. You guys are so awesome! Wow, I didn’t realize it was this tumblr’s 2 year anniversary a few days ago. Hahah! Time certainly flies. Anyways, toodles everybody. I’ll never stop loving Fahrenheit. I’ll be back, hopefully. (: I’ll just leave this tumblr here, don’t be afraid to backtrack all 903 pages and check out my Fahrenheit directory!
Sept.17.11 Calvin Chen cut class to chase girls, regrets losing the dream to become a doctor
Translated by Nastyhobbit@AF
"Apple E-News" host Calvin Chen is his family’s eldest grandson, so his family doted on him since he was little. When he was in primary school, he was a model student. He passed the exam to enter the No. 1 high school for boys Taipei Municipal Jianguo High School (*JianZhong for short). His biggest setback was that because he cut class to chase girls, he failed in his university entrance exams and his dream to become a doctor was shattered. His angry mother sent him to Canada, where he persevered and finished his undergrad and master’s in four years. He lived in Vancouver for six and a half years, and spent approximately 7 million TWD.
Calvin Chen was the class monitor in primary school, a model student, he was good at academics, he was good at sports, and was a member of the school track and field team. In middle school, though he loved having fun, his academic records were still among the best, so he was able to smoothly pass the exams to attend JianZhong. After entering JianZhong, he didn’t change his fun-loving personality. Add to that the free style of teaching in JianZhong, he took his fun-loving personality to the next level and sat at the back rows in class so he can easily skip classes, and instead played basketball and sang karaoke with his middle school buddies. Of course he didn’t neglect dating, and he also dated smart girls. He dated three girls who each went to school in BeiYi (*aka Taipei First Girls’ High School = Selina’s school), ZhongShan (*aka Taipei Municipal Songshan Senior High School = his first gf’s school), and YangMing (*aka Taipei Municipal Yang Ming Senior High School).
While Calvin Chen had fun in JianZhong, his dream was to become a doctor. But when he failed in his university entrance exams, that dream was shattered. The exam results was released August 8, and by September 7 he was already sent abroad. He said, “After applying to schools for only a month, I already packed my bags to go abroad. Clearly, Mom was very angry.”
Finally in Vancouver he was able to reflect on his mistakes. He spent one year in language school, then three years to finish his economics degree in Simon Fraser University, then because of his straight A’s, he was admitted to the University of Victoria for grad program in economics, where he spent another year. “At the time, I was super motivated. After my classes are finished for the day, I would go buy bento and go straight to the library to study and leave at around 12 midnight. After that I’d go to the grad school offices to study some more and go home at about 2 in the morning. Even the security guard on campus thought I was some thief.”
Calvin Chen’s performance in Vancouver was outstanding, he also worked part-time, washing cars and waiting tables, and also worked as a teaching assistant. After graduation he was already recruited to work at the Central Bank of Canada, and he intended to settle in Vancouver. But he unexpectedly returned to Taiwan to enter show business. This decision caused a furor in his family. It was only when he joined Fahrenheit and they performed at the Red House did he finally get his father’s approval.

Sept.17.11 Wu Chun: I’ll get married tomorrow
"Why don’t I get married tomorrow?" joked Taiwan-based idol Wu Chun, in response to rumours that he is secretly married.
The former member of Taiwanese boy band Fahrenheit was reported to have married his high school sweetheart of 15 years in 2009, and that his daughter was born in February. A tabloid magazine in Taiwan even quoted sources they had spoken to in Wu’s hometown of Brunei.
The 32-year-old has since clarified through his manager that the woman and baby girl he was photographed with in the magazine are his sister-in-law and niece. But if any paparazzi dare go knocking on his family’s door again in Brunei, beware! “I’ve planted explosives outside my house,” he quipped.
Wu was in Singapore to promote his latest movie, My Kingdom (2011), where he spent the Mid-Autumn Festival with more than 200 fans at a special screening of the movie.
Catch his transformation from former boyband idol to serious actor on RazorTV.
