Zhu Hou Ren is an established veteran artiste who has been in the entertainment scene since 1985. He has successfully left an indelible impression on audience both young and old with his convincing acting skill.

In 1997, he received his first Best Actor nomination for his performance in “The Fall Guy” at Star Awards. And in 1999, he earned another Best Supporting Actor nod for his most notable role to date as Zheng Nanhua, the resident chef of a restaurant in the 50-ep drama “Wok Of Life”.

Hou Ren has ventured beyond acting by taking up directing and producing roles too. He made his feature film directorial debut in 2003 with “After School”, a film based on a true story that happened in Singapore about teenagers.

In 2010, he clinched the Best Supporting Actor Award at the annual Star Awards with his brilliant performance as the adorable and yet heart-warming grandfather who suffers from senile dementia in “Reunion Dinner”.

In 2012, besides acting in movies and drama serials, Hou Ren was also the resident judge for Silver Carnival, a 34–episode variety programme, where talented senior citizens compete with one another with their talents and skills.

In 2014, Hou Ren returns behind the lens to produce a Singapore-China collaboration “Meeting The Giant”, a film that revolves around young Chinese basketball players trying to achieve their dreams in Singapore. In the same year, “Served H.O.T.” earned him a nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role at the 19th Asian Television Awards. In 2017, he successfully clinched the Best Actor in a Supporting Role at the 22nd Asian Television Awards for his role in Toggle Drama Trapped Mind. 

In 2019, Hou Ren won his first Top 10 Most Popular Male Artiste.
