Ethan Juan grabs a 1 million TWD commercial


Once he starts taking, he can’t stop. This is Ethan Juan when he takes on commercials. Following in the footsteps of fellow Taiwanese stars, such as Wang Leehom, Jolin Tsai, Show Luo and Rainie Yang, Ethan has officially become the new ambassador for an American fast-food conglomerate, pocketing about 1 million TWD. What is a coincidence is that he also filmed his very first commercial for the same company 7 years ago, when he was 18, and his pay was only 20 thousand NTD, a stark contrast from now.

This series of commercials fronted by Ethan will be directed by a Hong Kong director, and will, in accordance to his idol drama background, be drama-like. Besides heavily promoting the 24 hours delivery service, Hello Kitty will just be loved like Ethan’s lover too. Before the actual shooting, the director had wanted to include a bungee jumping scene, and Ethan, who has a fear of heights, had only agreed after much steeling of his own nerves. The scene was eventually cancelled in the end, however, due to the weather and much to the relief of Ethan.

7 years ago, Ethan was merely a nobody in the modeling scene, and although he had flown to Singapore to film the commercial for this company, he was too, just one amongst all of the other actors on set. 7 years later, he is now immensely popular, and his value has increased accordingly as well.

However, Xiaotian would like to say that, “You can’t just look at the figures, I think I’ve worked really hard in this period of time as well.”
