In the end, Nicholas Tse deferred to Karry Wang because neither he nor Jam Hsiao could beat him. All this time, Karry Wang remained quiet. His response was, “First off, I think becoming famous at a young age is a very lucky thing, but there are good and bad things about it. There are advantages and disadvantages. Becoming famous at a young age will allow you to look upon this world much earlier. It can make you more mature a little earlier, but you are growing up under everyone’s gaze, which can put even more pressure on yourself. If you can overcome it well, then I think you can grow up. Someone that everyone saw grow up and become a person who gets more confident and more awesome as time passes.”

  2. Karry Wang is one of my favourite star. I wonder how he grow up very well under so much pressure, and maintain his charm all these years. Being famous as a child may have cost you a lot, just like Justin Bieber. Keep your good work, Karry, you’ve brought happiness to many people…
