It was a “painful decision,” the actor wrote, but went on to say that you have to make a choice to stay or go at certain crossroads in life.
“I decided to take a break, pray, clear my mind in my own space and take the step to achieve what I wanted to do. My intuition will always point me in the positive direction.”
Zheng also says he had good times at work and expresses his gratitude to friends, colleagues and Mediacorp.
“Always grateful to those who guided me, taught me, shared different perspectives with me, and encountered very interesting human relationships.”

Other roles he has taken on are writer and director (in addition to actor) for “Unconditional Love”, a local short film released in 2012, and executive producer for nine other projects.
The Celebrity Agency (TCA), Mediacorp’s talent management arm, also parted ways with Zheng in an Instagram post.
