Graduated from the Department of Philosophy, Soochow University, Mr. Sun grew up in a theatrical family that nurtured his interest in creating traditional dramas.   He has created many Taiwanese opera scripts performed in big theatre houses in recent years.  He is the first playwright to discuss homosexual love in traditional Taiwanese operas and the first one to adapt Chinese/ western classics into Taiwanese operas.  He even collaborated with famous writer Ms. Zhang Man-Juan, beginning a new chapter for the cross-field collaboration in Taiwanese operas. 

As the CEO of Yi-Shin, since he took over the troupe from his father Mr. Sun Rong-Hui, Yi-Shin that laid its solid foundation in acrobatic movements has never stopped trying new things and reaching out to the young audience.
