Would Katy Hudson or Liu Fu Rong enjoy the same degree of success like Katy Perry and Andy Lau?
MediaCorp princess Felicia Chin was another artiste who changed her Chinese name – from Chen Fengling to Chen Jingxuan. When she made the change in 2008, netizens feared that the change would negatively affect her popularity as she had already made a name for herself acting in Channel 8 dramas under her old name.
In 2010, showbiz took a backseat when Felicia decided to head back to school. That, however, has not affected her popularity as she remains well-loved by her fans.
The verdict: Felicia’s star continued to shine after the name change. She was dubbed one of MediaCorp’s Seven Princesses before school came-a-calling. Her recent role in this year’s Don’t Stop Believin’ brought much praise, with the drama breaking local television records.
