Yang Rainie

She started acting when she was 14-years-old, appearing in movies and commercials in Hong Kong. At 15, she auditioned for a girl band to be launched by BMG Records called "4 in Love" and passed with flying colors. From then on, she was called "Rainie" to fit in with the weather-based named girls of the group; she was originally called Lily in the industry.

She moved to Taiwan and pursued her acting career as she lived with her co-band members under one roof. She starred in various dramas starting with the mega blockbuster Meteor Garden where she played a supporting, yet pivotal role as the cute Xiao You (Hana Yori Dango's "Yuki" Chinese counterpart).

The rest is history as she proceeded on to be a much-loved leading lady by respectable men and starred in more bankable dramas. Unfortunately, in late 2002, 4 in Love had to disband. Windie and Sunnie proceeded with their studies and Cloudie pursued becoming a stewardess. Rainie was left in the E-circle.

Continuing as a solo artist, she reached new heights and levels with a different job- as a host. She discovered her hosting skills with the hosting jobs she did left and right. She became a host without disrupting her acting career where she also received many projects. She continued singing by performing on the OSTs of her dramas.

2005 was a pivotal year for Rainie. Her leading TV series "Devil Beside You" with Mike He brought her song Ai Mei absolute success. She holds the record as the first Chinese newcomer to achieve platinum status with her debut album My Intuition Ai Mei.

    I'm very surprised: I dropped Devil Beside You mainly because I couldn't stand her character, but I started watching ToGetHer and I really love her character, she may turn out to be one of my favorite female leads... Now, not only has she convinced me of her acting skills, but also of the quality of t-dramas, which I had basically given up on (I'm much more of a k-drama watcher). So she's very cool :)

    I have to say, she looks so much more beautiful and cute with long hair, I don't like her with short hair, Drunken to Love You, and Heartbeat Love, she has short hair, not looking so good as she did in Hi My Sweetheart. I do love her feisty and loving personality, her personality has made her #1 fav in my books... :)))
