Jerry Yan (Chinese: 言承旭; pinyin: Yán Chéngxù) was born 1 January 1977. He is a Taiwanese actor and became famous as part of the "F4". His birth name is Liao Yangzhen (Chinese: 廖洋震; pinyin: Liào Yángzhèn).


With his role as "Dao Ming Si" (Chinese: 道明寺; pinyin: Dào Míngsì) in Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden (流星花園) and its sequel Meteor Garden II, Jerry became popular across Asia. At the conclusion of the series, Jerry along with the other members of F4: Vic Chou, Vanness Wu and Ken Chu continued to perform together and released three studio albums as quartet boy band F4.

When not in F4, he, like the others, has his own successful solo career as both a singer and an actor. In 2006 he portrayed Dr Su Yi Hwa in critically acclaimed Taiwanese drama The Hospital which co-stars Leon Dai. He continues to act in other television series such as Hot Shot in 2008 with Wu Chun of Fahrenheit and Show Luo and Down With Love in 2010 with Ella Chen of S.H.E..

Jerry released his debut solo album, Jerry for You (Chinese: 第一次) in 2004. The track "一公尺" (One Meter) is listed at number 86 on Hit Fm Taiwan's Hit Fm Annual Top 100 Singles Chart (Hit-Fm年度百首單曲) for 2004.[1] The album was awarded one of the Top 10 Selling Mandarin Albums of the Year at the 2004 IFPI Hong Kong Album Sales Awards, presented by the Hong Kong branch of IFPI.[2]

In 2009 he released his second album titled, Freedom. The Japanese version broke the record (the highest ranking of male artist) among the Chinese Song Albums in Oricon Chart Japan.[citation needed] According Taiwan's G-Music chart the album is the ninth best selling album in Taiwan in 2009.[3]
