The Scandal That Rocked the Entertainment World: Linda Chien’s Tumultuous Journey
In the glitzy world of Taiwanese entertainment, before the Taiwan #metoo movement, the year 2020 unfurled a saga that gripped the nation.
Linda Chien, affectionately known as Butterfly, a shining star in the realms of hosting and acting, found herself at the center of a whirlwind scandal.

Back then, the revelation sent shockwaves through the industry and Chien’s life.
The once-celebrated actress saw her career take a nosedive, as endorsement deals evaporated like morning dew. The ties that bound her to her management company, a brainchild of Show Lo himself, were severed in the wake of the scandal.
In a move that mirrored the plot of a tragic drama, Chien chose to retreat from the limelight, her star fading into the shadows of obscurity.
The public watched, spellbound, as she vanished from the entertainment scene.
Amidst this personal and professional turmoil, a glimmer of hope appeared.
About a year after the scandal, whispers of romance fluttered through the air. It was rumored that Chien’s best friend played cupid, introducing her to a doctor in Shanghai. This budding romance culminated in a hushed wedding in the United States.
Throughout these trying times, Chien’s former husband emerged as a pillar of strength, steadfastly supporting her even as his family cautioned against her re-entering the tumultuous world of showbiz.
A New Chapter: Linda Chien’s Return to Taiwan
However, like many tales of love and loss, Chien’s marital bliss was not destined to last.
Sources close to her revealed that she has recently returned to Taiwan, her marriage a chapter closed. Now navigating the waters of single life, Chien’s current situation has evoked a mix of pity and concern from those around her.
Despite rumors circulating since earlier this year about Chien’s desire for a comeback in the industry, netizens have remained skeptical. However, her reported divorce has lead many netizens to anticipate a higher likelihood of her return.
This conjecture is set against the backdrop of Show Lo’s own comeback.
In 2021, he re-emerged with “Trap Game”, his first single in two years, followed by the Show Lo Evolution World Tour 2023. His recent performance in Singapore last month only added fuel to the fire of speculation regarding Chien’s future in the industry.
