(Kuala Lumpur, 21th) Tam Chun-yin won the “Malaysia’s Favorite TVB Actor” and “Best Actor” at the “Star Awards 2021” earlier this year, making him a double award winner. Recently, he flew to Malaysia to prepare for the first-ever “STARS Academy 2/声梦传奇2” here as a judge and guest performer.
He was happy to finally have the opportunity to thank the local audience for their votes, and laughed that he could not wait to give them a hug when he saw the “Uncle Auntie” crowd.
Tam Chun-yin beat out his rivals to be crowned the winner of “The Truth About Life” last year.
The five of them attended the launch of “TVB Malaysia Brand New Business Strategy” today (21) together with Tan Junyan, Chow Chi Hong, Chui Kin Pong, and members of the last “STARS Academy”, Katherine Man and Ho Jin Lok. The main character of “Brutally Young 2.0 (十八年后的终极告白2.0)” was broadcasted this week, and he said on stage that he was most afraid of being asked: “Who killed your wife in the drama?

Ask him if he will consider buying a property since he will come here often? Tam Chun-yin said: “Yes, but I have to save a little more money.” He and his wife Ren Zhiyan have a son and a daughter, and the main focus of life will be on the children, so although he thinks the children will like Malaysia very much, but since her daughter has just entered primary school, “I don’t want to let her change her environment so quickly for the time being. Let’s wait until she’s older. Maybe there is a chance.”
Tam Chun-yin is a good father and husband.
As for what to do in Malaysia, he said: “can not say yet”, but denied that it is a variety show or music works. When asked to open a restaurant, he laughed back when he invested in a Western restaurant in Hong Kong: “I want to ah, but in Hong Kong restaurants, I occasionally go to the kitchen, many people patronize is to eat the food I cook. If opened here, I am often absent, more difficult.”
