The name "F4", since year 2001 Meteor Garden filming, experienced popularity, ups and down, going solo, reuniting... various news, so what kind of relationship do the 4 of them have?

Ken said: "Our relations are subtle, not very good nor bad. Not possible to be best of friends because we have different lifestyles. And not possible to be on bad terms because we often have to work together. Are we really friends? Probably not." He added " Because besides work, we don't have any contacts." However, he did not overturn their many years of revolutionary feelings. He revealed they have slept together before. Was there competition between one another? He said: "Even if there was, it was no ill intentions."

But if given the chance for him to make a decision again, he expressed he will not walk the same road and would rather study. Besides losing freedom, privacy... after being a celebrity, there was once he was tembling outside the bank entrance, he realised he was lost the ability to do things himself. From then, he felt he has to refind his attitude of living. "This 3 years I have been working hard to shed idol image, who doesn't go downhill, the most important is that u have face ourself when u are asleep." Therefore, he practise Taichi, "I hope fans will learn from my way of life, not blindly spend money for my sake."

Although he is not willing to talk about his love life, he expressed "Currently, he has not found someone that can make him cook for her". But he admitted he did consider asking Lin Xi Lei to help out in his new MV, but her schedule was too busy to do so. When the media asked further about him and Lin Xi Lei, if the 2 of them have contacted lately, Ken immediately kept his smiles and said "Haven't i said b4, u all ask her yourself!". Thoughout the interview, he did not say her name"Lin Xi Lei" but used "she" instead.

With regards to whether he went on diet coz of his album release, Ken straight-forwardly replied "No!". He expressed he has never bothered about his weight. Reporter continued and asked: "did the record company request u to lose weight?". He immediately retorted: "I find it weird, where did u all get this wrong info from." He emphasized again: "I have never bothered about my weight, I am satisfied with the way I am."
After Ken's serious explaination, the reporter did not question further.

About his "Getting Real" new songs and greatest hits album which will be released early Jan, Ken expressed the album consist of 22 songs and will be his last album with SonyBmg as in their contract. He only wishes to finish the album promotions. Although both parties have not talked about contract renewal, he is firm that this should be his last actual album. Ken said the music market has changed, in future should be releasing digital music. Because of contract issues with recording company, he would not have any music works the next half of the year, earliest will be during summer holidays.

This year he does not have much opportunity to go overseas, most of the time stayed in Taiwan. Recently, he spent 3 days to fulfil his wish to ride his bike around the islands. Ken said next year the global economy should be the same as this year, not really good, so he chooses to face it in a conservative way. For example, not to make investment for the time being. He predicts his workload in the coming year won't be much either. He said, actually lately he daily expenditure is zero, he smiled and answered: "Because I cook, so save on going out for meals."
