Alec Su (born on September 11, 1973 in Taipei, Taiwan) is a Taiwanese pop star and well-known actor in Taiwanese dramas. He became famous as a member of the Taiwanese Idol Band "The Little Tigers", formed in 1988, and later for his first Chinese TV series "Princess Returning Pearl" (series 1 and 2).

Alec Su's stardom career started in 1988, at the age of 15, when he joined The "Little Tigers" trio boy band. The band was the first idol singing group that debuted in the Taiwanese music industry and Alec was labelled as the 'obedient tiger'. Its elevated popularity was unprecedented by any other singing group at the time. The "Little Tigers" attracted fans from Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, and amongst Chinese communities around the world. The success of the band began the new generation of Taiwanese pop culture in the early 1990s.

Apart from being a singer, Alec was often epitomized by the general public as a superior student. He attended Taiwan's number one high school, Taipei Municipal Jian Zhong High School and was accepted into the prestigious National Taiwan University, where he majored in Mechanical Engineering . Alec's experiences describing his high school years, preparing for the Taiwan university entrance examinations while trying to also juggle his performing schedule as a member of a popular singing group, are recorded in his 1995 book entitled "My Days at Jian Zhong / Youth Never Die". [cite book |last= Su |first= Alec |authorlink=Alec Su |title= 青春的場所 Qing Chun De Chang Suo / My Days at Jian Zhong / Youth Never Die |publisher= Unitas Publishing Co., Ltd., Taiwan |origyear=1995 | year=2003 |language=Chinese |isbn= 957-522-417-5 (2003) ]

However, as Alec became well known at a young age, he felt that he had lost his freedom as a result of being in the limelight and in the public's eye. At the age of 21, a year before his Uni graduation in Taiwan, Alec decided to study abroad in England.

In 1995, after the break up of "Little Tigers", Alec Su embarked on an acting career. His role as the fifth prince in the Chinese TV series blockbuster Princess Returning Pearl I and II won him fame as a television actor in 1997. He continued in 2000 with another hit TV series "Romance in the Rain". His later TV series include "Heavenly Sword and Dragon Sabre" (2002), "Magic Touch of Fate" (2004, costarring Taiwanese actress Ruby Lin and Korean singer Kang Ta), and "Mischievous Princess" (2005). He collaborated with Korean actress Chae Rim in two 2003 productions, "Love of the Aegean Sea" and "Warriors of the Yang Clan".In 2006, Alec appeared in the 1930s drama Jiang Ji Jiu Ji co-starring with Li Qian, Cecilia Ye Tong, and Paul Chun, which aired in Spring 2007. He has just finished filming a new TV drama, "Da Zhen Fan", which will air later in 2008.

Along with his TV success, Alec has released thirty top-selling albums, starting as a member of the "The Little Tigers" group. As a solo artist he has released 14 albums, beginning in 1992 with "I Only Want You to Love Me" to his 2004 release "Before and After".
