RBKD: Definitely a must-read for all fans! And a highly recommended article to the rest.

In this 14-page interview done in English with Rui En, we follow Toggle’s lead to revisit Rui En’s 14-year acting career journey in her own words. What a long ride it has been………

In this post, RBKD shares with you our after-thoughts and how to better appreciate this article, sparing you the exact details of the interview so that you may enjoy in its original state at Toggle. It’s like wine pairing you know? :P

Read on for those who prefer to read RBKD’s sharing first, and for those who prefer to head to Toggle first, click here.


English Version: Toggle: Rui En, in retrospect

中文版: Toggle: “超级红星”瑞恩15年演艺路 4大“最”状

RBKD’s insights: Just scroll down :P


Pre-2007: The days of being ‘7 princesses’

Those were the days when “7 Princesses” were the talk of the town. Labeled as the “Ice Princess”, the association has always been a double-edged sword and understandably, non-conformist Rui En wasn’t comfortable with the labeling.

Still, what doesn’t kill you make you stronger; despite being ranked among the bottom few frequently back then, Rui En has certainly come a long way to her current state now.

Witty Rui En quipped, “who doesn’t love Elsa?” Indeed, now we know why even our young cousins adore Rui En? :p

Pre-2008: Before having a fanclub

Rui En described the years as ‘fuzzy’ and didn’t think she would have any fans or fanclub. We are really thankful to you peeps out there, for quietly supporting Rui En before RBKD came into the picture. Thanks for the love on our behalf :)

A role that got her on everyone’s radar: Metamorphosis (2007)

If each role was a generation, then ASP An Xiaoqian would be the predecessor of our beloved ASP Hu Xiaoman and INSP Ng Tze Keat. When you think of policewoman in local dramas, you think of Rui En. ’nuff said, we are thankful for that.

Post-2008: When RBKD came into her life

This page is diabetic and sugar overloaded. Warning: you may need your insulin shots.

Rui En shared with Toggle that everything changed when RBKD started. Quoting her, “they are everything to me and I’d not be where I am without them. That’s just as simple as that.”

Thanks Rui En, our lives changed when you entered ours too.

LOL at Rui En “complaining” to Toggle that RBKD sabotaged her. Who? What? When?! Read on as she shared more about her RBKD. :)

The role that proved naysayers wrong: Happy Family (2010)

Xiaodong will always be simply special to fans. *wink*

Click to read page 7

The role she gained ‘acting enlightenment’: With You (2010)

Her first ever acting nomination, her first ever “Best Actress” award at Star Awards. Rui En said she was in a daze when she won, so were we. We are just glad and thankful, how Rui En has grown as an actress especially after this role.

Click to read page 8

The role that left everyone shell-shocked with her transformation: A Tale of 2 Cities (2011)

There were days when we were not used to seeing Rui En in heels and now there are days when we wonder how tall her heels have become. Her transformation and acceptance of more feminine appearance is just like her acting career, always changing, improving and open to changes.

Every role is a result of blood, sweat and tears and like reverse-horcrux, a part of every role will always live in Rui En. Just like Ya Le, just like any other role…..

#SA2016SG All-Time Favourite graduate #RuiEn speaks to us ahead of her big day on April 17 and revisits her ups and downs as an actress for the past 14 years. Find out why she thinks Xiao Man from #Unriddle is the defining role of her career. Read the full story on @rbkd

The role in which she won her second and third best actress: Unriddle 2 (2012)

Fans, you get the answer you have been craving for.

Does Rui En want Unriddle 3? The answer is a big ‘Yes’. Read on to see how would she hope Xiaoman’s character would develop.

It is of course a pity, to note the harsh reality that Unriddle 3 is unlikely to happen any time soon (if it will ever happen) due to high cost and budget cuts. Never give up hoping ya?

Shoutout to Unriddle’s producer Paul Yuen and storywriter Phang Kai Yee, what say you? ;)

The first time people saw her in a comedic role: The Dream Makers (2013)

“Crane up, tilt down, zoom in. 最好有点王家卫的feel~”

Everyone loves Fang Tonglin; be it Tonglin on her own or with her bro as Fang Siblings (speaking of which, did you know that RBKD was the one who coined the term when reposting one of their selfies back then?) or with Zhanpeng and Jason. That’s why Tonglin gets the man! :p

From initial scepticism of being an over-the-top performance to eventual well-reception and love for a character so adorable, no wonder Tonglin makes it to Rui En’s Top 3 career-defining roles, after Siqi and Xiaoman.

The first time she crossed over to the dark side: Against The Tide (2014)

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, hate cannot drive out hate, only love can.”

Who can forget this? Need we even say more?

There are times, most of the time in fact, when we hope that Rui En can be duly recognised for her respective roles with acting awards. But there are roles, not confined nor defined by the rules of awards, but recognised and acknowledged by the yardstick of the common viewer. This is one of those. Always our Best Actress. :)

Where to from now: Rui En’s progression to mature roles

Sure, fans might worry how Rui En has entered the land of no-return after her first ‘aunty’ role in upcoming “If Only I Could…..”

But more than anything else, fans just hope that Rui En gets to try a myriad of roles, defined by their depths and not age. Just like how Rui En do not wish to trap herself to the pigeonhole of being an idol or just become known for a certain type of roles, fans hope that her willingness to try diverse roles can be matched by equally varied range of opportunities too.

Aunty? Woa. Policewoman? Awesome. Goofy? Why not?

As long as you can deliver (and we know you will), by all means, challenge us with your multitude of roles and acting. We have adapted pretty well over the years, haven’t we? :p

So what motivates Rui En and keeps her going today?

Yup, so now Rui En has 2 cats and Bingo has been renamed muffin. Why huh? :p

Rui En claims that reading interviews of actors and actresses she admires as the fuel to keep her passion burning. Thank goodness for these people, hence you are still here in our lives.

Rui En also gave special thanks to many, including “angels sent from God” and her “Hype family” for always being there for her. Indeed. If you are reading this, you know you are included, you have always been there for her. Thank you for that.

Rui En’s legacy: To be able to empower women and young girls

Awards do not define Rui En.

There are those who crave for awards and fame, and there are those who wish to use the awards and fame for greater good.

In Hollywood there’s Leonardo Dicaprio who lent his voice for climate change in his acceptance speech for the coveted golden man trophy he had waited 22 years for.

In Singapore, Rui En shares how she hopes to inspire and empower women and young girls through her acting and everything. Keep it up, girl!

王敏丽 报道

RBKD: Toggle盘点10位来自单亲家庭的艺人,看他们如何反转逆境成为今日红星,其中就包括瑞恩。她17岁时,父母协议离婚,而瑞恩就跟随了父亲,继母与奶奶生活。当初踏入演艺圈是希望感受别人对她的关心与重视,但她逐渐改变这个想法,细心钻研演技,因此在历届《红星大奖》与《亚洲电视大奖》中多次荣获 “最佳女主角”的头衔。

From superstars to science superheros, our alumni take the global stage.


Think about this the next time you walk through NTU. Big names in entertainment have navigated the same hallowed corridors on their way to classes. We’re talking about celebrities such as Mandopop queen Stefanie Sun, Asian Television Awards Best Actress Rui En and MediaCorp Best Info-ed Programme Host Lee Teng, all proud graduates of the Nanyang Business School.
