MediaCorp artist Ayden Sng is definitely more than just a pretty face. Besides being a rising actor in the local entertainment scene, he also sports musically-gifted talents and converses fluently in English and Mandarin. Fans may remember him best from his supporting role in Walk With Me and The Playbook, where he starred alongside Sheila Sim. Most recently he appeared in Loving You, where he paired up with Jessica Liu for a sister-brother relationship with an 18-year age gap.

While other kids were going for piano and art classes, actor-stuntman Peps Goh was throwing Sanda punches in the ring. At secondary four, Goh was already doing parkour and later went on to perform stunts in commercials and self-produced action films. He also starred as Sang Nila Utama in the Bicentennial Experience and a theatre role in Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress.
Goh also remarks that he often doubles as actresses, and muses that he makes quite a pretty girl too! Well, we’ll be the judge of that!

The Channel 8 drama “My Guardian Angels” has been getting a lot of attention lately, so it’s no wonder Benjamin Tan’s popularity soared when he got casted as the likable son of Kym Ng. The influencer-turned-actor also appeared on Lions Mums Season 3, Emerald Hill and Long Long Time Ago. With 71.8k followers on Instagram, Benjamin also has great fashion sense and loves posting about his day to day life on social media.

If you’ve been on the web, you would have come across this meme, which is none other than Star Search 2019 first runner-up Herman Keh’s face. The priceless shot was taken during the finals where he impressed netizens with his performance, so much that they lovingly turned him into a meme. Even Hong Kong actress Carina Lau left a positive remark on his performance and complimented him for stealing the spotlight from everyone else!
It’s only just the beginning for Herman Keh, who also hopes to be Singapore’s first “Mr Bean”. With his unique charm and talent, we can expect to see more of his antics in Singapore’s entertainment industry.

Standing tall at 1.82m, Joel Choo made his acting debut in Channel 5’s Faculty as a university swimmer struggling to balance his personal life and sports. Sharing in his father, veteran actor Zhu Houren’s passion for acting, he went on to snag movie roles in C.L.I.F 5, Titoudao and most recently – and memorably – A Million Dollar Dream in 2018. While Choo has yet to appear alongside his father in a drama, they’ve recently captured Singaporeans’ hearts with a homemade TikTok video.
