Chen was the third member to join boyband Fahrenheit in 2005.

On Fahrenheit's 2nd album, Chen sang the rap part of the song 心裡有數. He recorded his first solo for The X Family soundtrack entitled 你是我所有的回憶. He also sang his own version of 超喜歡你 on his 2010 series 愛似百匯. He frequently sings Fahrenheit's "Sexy Girl" during fan events, like what happened on the "When Love Walked In" event. Chen is supposed to sing a solo for the drama "When Love Walked In". Chen said in an interview that he plans to release his own solo album in late 2014 since his bandmates Aaron Yan and Jiro Wang have already released theirs.

After fellow band member Jiro Wang started hosting, Chen has also got a hosting job in MTV. He signed a one-season contract with MTV hosting the show 日韩音乐风 (aka: RHYYF, Japan Korea Music Craze). He replaced Ken Wu, who was host for the infotainment program during the last three years. Chen's first episode of this show was on Thursday July 1, 2010.

After a year of hosting, it is said that MTV will renew their contract with Calvin Chen.

Chen also hosted the "Pink Lipstick" Korean drama conference last year.

Through RHYYF and interviewing many Japanese and Korean artists and bands, Chen has built a reputation with fans of those artists as well.

Chen hosted as a substitute in many popular Taiwanese shows such as 100% Entertainment (娱乐百分百) and Total Entertainment (完全娱乐)

On 18 August 2011, news confirmed that Chen is one of the seven hosts of a live show, Apple Entertainment News. The show had its pilot episode on 29 August without Chen because he was in Shanghai with Fahrenheit for the Eastern Camel Event.


On 21 May 2011, Chen released his solo photo book The Incredible Journey of Calvin Chen. (逆向旅程:辰亦儒溫哥華留學記) The book talks about Chen's life in Canada as a student and his path to fame as the Sunshine Boy. Two versions of the book were released, one comes with a DVD and the other is just the book.

Personal life

After graduating from Taipei Municipal Jianguo High School, one of the top high schools in Taiwan, he pursued his college education in Canada at Simon Fraser University. He completed his masters degree in Economics at the University of Victoria. He joined a pageant-like competition (Sunshine Boyz) in Vancouver, where he won first place with a free ticket to Taiwan, a contract with a music company, and a role in a drama in 2004. He became a member of Fahrenheit in 2005. He had enrolled in the graduate program in Public Finance at National Chengchi University, but discontinued his study to focus on his showbiz career. He launched his fashion brand, WOW, in October 2008.

Chen speaks Mandarin, English, Taiwanese, and understands conversational Cantonese. He also understands basic Korean and Japanese due to his work as a host.
