How much does it take to get veteran host Chang Fei out of retirement? Our guess is, it’s going to cost quite a bit.
The 71-year-old variety show host Chang Fei has dominated the hosting scene for some time and is well-known throughout 1990s and 2000s.
However, since his Big Shot Variety Show concluded in 2018, Chang Fei has rarely appeared on screen.
On Feb 1, Chang Fei’s elder sister Jenny Fei claimed to have an opportunity to host with Chang Fei in the future.
In response, Chang Fei’s manager told Next Apple News that while the Taiwanese is interested to return to showbiz, he will “let nature take its course” as “many things depend on fate”.
She also revealed that there was a mobile game advertising company who looked for Chang Fei to take on a project and offered NT$3.5 million (S$154,000) for the engagement. However, after thinking about it, he declined the opportunity.
As for his brother, and former singer, Fei Yu-ching, the manager emphasised that he will not be returning to showbiz.
