Template:Infobox Chinese-language singer and actor

LilJay (born 廖俊傑 (pinyin: Liào Jùn Jié) ) is a member of Lollipop, a Taiwanese Mandopop boyband. The group consists of six members, Owodog, Liljay, Prince, Fabien, William and A-wei. They are all chosen from Channel [V] Taiwan's show Bang Bang Tang (BBT 模范棒棒堂), a show which sought to create new male artists in the entertainment business of Taiwan. LilJay is one of the lead singers in the group, and is known best for lyric composition. He has composed lyrics for 13 released songs, two of which were opening themes for television dramas.

Lollipop signed under the label Gold Typhoon (formerly EMI Capitol) and Channel [V] Taiwan in 2006. However, their artist management contract with Channel [V] Taiwan ended at the end of 2009. Liljay is now signed under A Legend Star Entertainment Corp., a company founded by former Channel [V] Taiwan director, Andy Chang.


Biography Edit

BackgroundEdit

Liljay's family consists of his parents, a younger sister, and a younger brother. His younger brother was also a member of Bang Bang Tang II, but he was eliminated in the second elimination round because of poor performance. Liljay also owns a female Chow Chow, called Lolly. It was bought by Liljay and Owodog in 2009.[1]

Liljay lived with other members of Lollipop from 2006 to 2009. Due to disturbances caused by fans gathering outside their apartment, Lollipop had moved several times since their debut and had once lived in an apartment rented to them by BBT show host Fan Fan in Taipei .[2] However, at the end of 2009, Liljay has moved away from Lollipop's apartment and is now living with Prince and Modi.[3]

In his childhood, Liljay studied in Taipei Municipal Hulu Elementary School, Taipei Municipal Chongqing Junior School, and Taipei Municipal Song Shan High School of Commerce. He then went on to attend Takming University of Science and Technology where he met Owodog. However, due to their busy lives after joining Lollipop, they later transferred to Hsing Wu College, where Liljay is currently a student in the Department of Applied English.

2006-2007: The formation of LollipopEdit

Besides studying in the same school, Liljay and Owodog are also members of Taiwanese breakdance group Black Angle Crew.[4] In June 2006, they went to BBT Taipei audition together and both were selected into "Bang Bang Tang". The first episode of BBT was aired on August 14, 2006.[5]

On November 27, 2006, the episode in which the six members of Lollipop were selected and revealed was aired.[6] Liljay was the first member to be selected into Lollipop. The order in which other members were announced is as follows: Prince, Owodog, Fabien, William, and finally A-Wei, who is also a member of Black Angle Crew. The members signed a contract to Channel V, and Dora Ao became their agent. The group, named Lollipop, then officially signed a contract with EMI Capitol on December 2, 2006. On December 9, 2006, Lollipop made its first public performance as a group at the V-Power Music Storm Concert.

Lollipop first EP Colorful Lollipop was released on January 26, 2007, with six different covers, each featuring a member of the group. Four months later, on May 25, a second EP titled Summer's First Experience was released along with a photobook compiled with photos taken in Okinawa, as well as a DVD.[7] Lyrics were written by Liljay and Prince for the song "Summer's First Experience."

2007-2008Edit

Acting and hosting debutEdit

During the summer of 2007, Liljay and other members of Lollipop made their acting debut in the drama Brown Sugar Macchiato, a collaboration with Hey Girl. The first episode was aired in Taiwan on July 15, 2007. Later, Lollipop admits on Kangxi Lai Le that the drama had been more of an introduction of the two groups instead of a major acting challenge, as the members were told to act like themselves, and that many subplots were explained only briefly due to the large number of main characters.[8] After thirteen episodes, the drama ended on October 7, 2007. Additionally, an official soundtrack was released with songs from Lollipop and Hey Girl. Liljay wrote the lyrics for the opening theme of this drama.[9]

On September 26, 2007, Lollipop visited Hong Kong to promote their television soundtrack Brown Sugar Macchiato. This was their first overseas promotional activity ever since their debut, and a huge fan turnout caused a great commotion at the shopping mall where they were having their autograph session. Liljay celebrated his birthday with thousands of fans in this event.[10][11]

The same year, Lollipop began hosting their own show Lollipop Gyashan (LOLLIPOP哪裡怕) on October 27 until April 19, 2008, when the show stopped airing.[12][13]

Official debut album and concertEdit

Lollipop's debut album Gyashan (哪裡怕) was released on December 28, 2007. Gyashan entered Mandarin charts in the number one position, outselling F4's album Waiting for You - Await Your Love (在這裡等你) which was released on the same day.[14] Liljay contributed lyrics to three of the ten songs in this album.

On January 26, 2008, a year after the release of their first EP, Lollipop held its debut concert at the Taipei Arena. The concert DVD was released on June 6, 2008, breaking chart records with sales rates of more than 35%[15]. The DVD has topped the charts for a period of one month since.[16][17]

2008Edit

Graduation from Bang Bang TangEdit

Lollipop had been appearing regularly on Bang Bang Tang since August 14, 2006. With Channel [V]'s decision to select a new batch of boys and create a second season, Lollipop and most of the other members "graduated" from Bang Bang Tang after their last performances as members of the show.[18][19][20] Their last official episode aired on August 29, 2008, marking the end of the first season.[21] In total, the members of Lollipop had participated in more than 500 episodes of the show. Since the start of Bang Bang Tang II, Liljay had, on several occasions, returned to the show as guest and co-host.

Other hosting and performing opportunitiesEdit

After graduation from Bang Bang Tang, Liljay began hosting Na Li Wu Da Kang (哪裡5打坑) with Owodog, A-wei, Hey Girl's Apple and Channel V's VJ Rong Jia. The first episode was aired on September 7, 2008, when the last episode was aired on November 30, 2008.

During this period, Liljay also guest starred in The Legend of Brown Sugar Chivalries, as well as writing lyrics for two songs in this drama, including the opening theme. On October 3, 2008, the original soundtrack was released by Gold Typhoon. Two editions were released for the soundtrack, one being a 10,000 limited edition.

In November, 2008, Liljay was injured during dance practice. He performed with injury in Singapore's Music Monster Festival on November 22 and 2008 V-Power Love Music Concert on November 29.[22] The V-Power concert united Liljay, Owodog, and A-wei with other Black Angle Crew members for a dance performance. Lollipop's participation in the concert also marks, symbolically, the two year anniversary of the group's formation.

A week later, on December 6, 2008, Lollipop performed four songs with themes of wushu at the 45th Golden Horse Awards ceremony.[23] Liljay wrote the rap for one of the songs in this performance.[24]

2009Edit

Bang Bang Tang IIIEdit

In February, 2009, Channel [V] began filming its revamped version and new season of Bang Bang Tang, which marked the return of several members from the first season, including Lollipop.[25] Bang Bang Tang III began airing on March 2, 2009, with Show Luo being the first guest star.[26] However, with show host Fan Fan leaving the show to focus on her musical career, Bang Bang Tang's last episode was aired on July 30, 2009.[27] In 2009, Lollipop made its first lyric contributions to other artists, which are included in the mini album of the group Choc7, composed of seven members selected from the same show.

I am Legend: Second album and Asia tourEdit

Lollipop's second album I am Legend is released on June 19, 2009. Liljay contributed lyrics to four songs; his first solo song is also recorded in this album. A concert tour in Asia with the same name commenced in Hong Kong Coliseum on July 4 and July 5, 2009.[28]

While promoting I am Legend on several Taiwanese variety shows, including Kangxi Lai Le, 100% Entertainment, Azio Superstar, etc., Lollipop created a series of dance performances specifically for the show hosts of each show, thus completing a mini TV tour.

On September 12, 2009, a short film directed and shot by A-wei called The Great Escape (廖問之越V風雲) was aired on Channel [V] Taiwan. Liljay is the male lead of this film.

2010Edit

A Legend StarEdit

Lollipop's artist management contract with Channel [V] Taiwan ended at the end of 2009. Liljay and Prince are now signed under A Legend Star Entertainment Corp., a company founded by former Channel [V] Taiwan director, Andy Chang. Liljay and Prince has moved away from Lollipop's apartment, and are now living together in their new home with Prince's brother, Modi. [29]
