No one would consider 18 years the blink of an eye but somehow it feels that way when told that Taiwanese actress-singer Rainie Yang just celebrated her 18th year in the entertainment industry. She debuted in 1998 but didn’t really hit the limelight until a supporting role in Meteor Garden, and her career truly has surpassed that of MG’s female lead Barbie Hsu who has basically retired from the industry since getting married 5 years ago. When I think Rainie I think hustle and grit, a strong desire for success and achievement and she’s worked her way there even if she’s not the prettiest actress around or the strongest singer. I love everything she does for that hardworking ethos and can safely say she keeps improving on herself, aging like fine wine. Congrats to Rainie!
