Musical career

Career

Guo graduated from the Shanghai Drama Institute and moved to Singapore during the 1990s to join the Television Corporation of Singapore (predecessor of MediaCorp). He joined SPH MediaWorks in late 2000[1] but returned to MediaCorp in 2005 when the two companies merged. Although trained as an actor, he is mostly known in Singapore as a presenter of MediaCorp Channel 8 current affairs programme Hello Singapore (狮城有约) and host of the Star Awards.

Guo has gotten 5 out of 10 Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes from 1997-1999, 2010, 2018 respectively.

Personal life

Guo is married to a Singapore permanent resident Jade Shen Jie in 1994 and has a son, Marcus. He took up Singaporean citizenship in 2001.[2]

In 2010, Guo and Elvin Ng were reportedly engaged in an online feud over comments exchanged in the dressing room during filming of the series.[3] The incident was notably parodied in a skit at the Star Awards 2011 in which Christopher Lee, portraying series director Chong Liung Man, tells their characters to "stop fighting" and "write on [their] blogs".
