The place to be
Saying that "China is the place to be now", Tan reasons that the world has its attention on China, making it attractive to move there:
China is the place to be now. The whole world is turning their attention there and everything is happening there. That gave me a good reason to move to Beijing.

Tan's move to China also coincides with what seems like the start of his career in entertainment.
According to the same interview, he is currently signed to a "Hong Kong artiste management agency", which has Angelababy and Japanese model and actress Kiko Mizuhara under their wing.
Tan is a photographer by profession. He is one half of photography duo ChuanDo&Frey, which has worked with international fashion titles such Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle.
