Do you remember her? I bet you do, especially if you grew up in the 90s. She’s an amazing actress and her every performance on screen were filled with so much depth that you can’t help but pay attention to her. My favorite show of hers would be The Vagrant, where she portrayed the role of a chia zha bor. What about yours?

Dubbed as one of the most popular female artistes in the industry, her works has always enjoyed great results, with the drama Stand By Me going on to defeat even Return of the Condor Heroes back in 1998. In fact, that same year, she was nominated for Best Actress Award in the 1998 Asian Television Awards, a first in Singapore’s showbiz industry.

I bet that many people, including me, were disappointed when MediaCorp released news that Huang Biren has left the company on June 2008 and her last time on screen as a MediaCorp artiste was on 11 July 2008.

If you were, like me, a fan of hers at that time, you’d have lost faith in local productions and venture into the world of Hong Kong dramas, Japanese dramas and Korean dramas.

In 2012, she announced that she has plans to return to the local showbiz scene, and is in talks with MediaCorp.

She made her comeback to television with two dramas – Three wishes and Tiger mum – after a 6 years break from acting. For those of us who were holding our breaths, hoping that she’s still able to perform as amazingly as she did in the past, she proved that she still has the ability when her comeback drama Three Wishes broke the 1 million mark on its debut episode, and the final episode garnering 1.1 million viewers.


So, what else can we expect from this veteran actress? She’s currently filming together with an impressive cast, which consists of big names like Zoe Tay, Li Nanxing, Rui En, Jeanette Aw, Qi Yuwu, Romeo Tan and Julia Tan on a new drama The Dream Makers 2, which promises to be a highly anticipated and exciting drama sequel to The Dream Makers.

So, if you’re a fan of Huang Biren, remember to catch the debut episode of The Dream Makers 2 on Channel 8, which is said to be on 3 December 2015 and watch how she acts out the role of a goal-oriented and ruthlessly efficient career woman.

Here’s why a 4-day workweek might finally really be possible in Singapore soon:
