Taiwanese actor Xiu Jie Kai, 32, is slogging away before he is due to enlist for military service early next year. He’s taking up offers of drama roles, commercial appearances and advertisements one after another to save up funds for his wife, 41-year-old actress Alyssa Chia, and their two-month-old daughter, nicknamed “Bu Bu.”
Jie Kai recently shot an ad for a convenience store in Taipei’s Neihu district, and appears at commercial events at least once a week. He has also begun filming for a new project before his scenes on the comedy series Bitter Sweet wrapped.
Meanwhile, Alyssa is staying home with Bu Bu and snapping sweet selfies with her baby and the family pooch. “Getting ready for an afternoon nap and this jealous fellow tries to butt in,” she wrote on Facebook yesterday.
Alyssa plans to return to work next month with an appearance at a fashion event.
