3 years ago he moved to Taipei from his hometown in Chiayi. He quit his job as a fitness instructor to follow his dream of becoming an actor, but the path to stardom is not an easy one. He was jobless for 3 month and after spending all his savings, he had to borrow money from friends to make rent. His misfortunes did not just ended here: one time in the shower, he pulled the towel hanger down and this accident cost him 5 stitches on his eyelid. After this, he had to cancel his contract with his agent, and started a “friendly society” with several young sport-loving actors, wrote his own resume and asked his buddy Carry to send jobs his way.

Despite all the hardships, Adam Lin came on top. Not only did he gained popularity from a photography session with the “hot guy producer” Timothy’s Photos, but he also published his own fitness book. In his book, he teaches everyone how to exercise with only two dumbbells at home. The book, of course, also included his photos allowing readers to stay in shape, stay healthy, and enjoy some eye-candy.

Adam Lin recently participated in a new short, Little Man, from the "5 Lessons in Happiness" film collection. When asked about if his role had caused him any... problems, his answer was not really. When he returned home for the new year, everyone jokingly refer to him as “little man”, and he also clarified that he is not that little during the film's press conference. However, there were still some comments on social media, saying that “we will love you no matter what size you are”. This made Adam Lin feel relieved.
