He made his acting debut in police drama C.L.I.F. in 2011, playing a rich kid who lands himself in trouble after single-handedly masterminding a series of bombings.[2] Since then, he rose to fame with a huge fan base, and was subsequently cast in On The Fringe.

In 2012, Fang made his debut in film Imperfect. The same year, he also starred in Show Hand and Don't Stop Believin'.

In 2013, Fang was awarded the Best Newcomer award at Star Awards 2013. He also hosted his first travelogue My Working Holiday where he visited different countries to work in exchange for food and lodging, which earned him a nomination for the Best Info-Ed Host at Star Awards 20.

Fang starred as a lead role in Served H.O.T. in 2014. In the same year, he was given a role in basketball-themed movie Meeting The Giant, directed by Tay Ping Hui.[3]

In 2016, Fang made his debut as a rap artist and released his first single, "1st Attempt", featuring vocals from Sylvester Sim.

Fang has gotten 2 out of 10 Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes from 2015, 2017 respectively.
