In April this year, Chuando moved to Beijing to explore such opportunities.

“China is the place to be now. The whole world is turning their attention there and everything is happening there. That gave me a good reason to move to Beijing,” he said in an interview with 8 Days.

In fact, a well-known agency has already signed him!

“[I signed with a] Hong Kong artiste management agency that also represents Angelababy and [Japanese model] Kiko [Mizuhara],” Chuando shares.

It is a good move for the agency, considering Chuando’s global fame already. 

“A lot of people from all over the world, like South America, have told me on Instagram that they discovered me and are now following me,” he added.

“And I think it became a trend in India for the Instagram users there to tag me in their photos, even if it had nothing to do with me. I guess they are using my account as a platform [to get exposure for their photos].”

According to Chuando, fans often send him messages claiming their love for him, asking him about his diet and skincare routine.

“That’s the main part of why people are still following me on Instagram — anti-ageing. They want to find out more about me than my photography work, even though I started this Instagram thing for my photography.”

Aww. Chuando, we love your photography! And we can’t wait to see what you bring to the big screen.
