Aaron is the youngest member of Fahrenheit and is also the second member to join the group. When he was young his family had moved to New York, USA, where he continued to stay for his primary education for about five years. Later on he moved back to Taiwan for his secondary education.

In early 2005, Comic producers were searching for elite bloggers around the web and discovered Aaron who had been really popular online during that time. They recommended him to audition for a role in a drama. At first Aaron thought it was fraud, but after several tests he found it to be real. He was given a small role in the drama I Love My Wife.

Aaron attended the Chinese Culture University and was majoring in Journalism but switched later on to Jinwen University of Science and Tecnology and changed his major to English while in his third year. He did this because his career was greatly affecting his academics and learning environment. In October 2010 he announced he had quit his schooling to focus on his career.
