Wang Kai

As a child, Wang Kai dreamt of being an actor. Despite some opposition from family, in 2003, he entered the prestigious Central Academy of Drama in Beijing. While still in school, Wang Kai starred in Cold Autumn (2006) as Huang Yuanshang.
After graduating in 2007, Wang Kai’s breakthrough role was as Chen Jiaming, an effeminate make-up artist in Ugly Wudi (2008-2011), the Chinese version of American Ugly Betty. While he was successful in his role in Ugly Wudi, Wang Kai ended up rejecting several role offers in the year that followed as the offers were typecast. While Wang Kai continued to star in several roles, his mainstream success did not come until 2014.
In 2014, All Quiet in Peking aired with Wang Kai starring as Fang Mengwei, a police officer. His dedication and acting skills earned the respect of veteran actors on set. He also starred in A Murder Beside Yanhe River, for which he won the China Film Youth Generation Forum Award.
With the airing of The Disguiser (2015) and Nirvana in Fire (2015) later that year, Wang Kai quickly shot to widespread fame in China. His acting as the loyal Ming Cheng in The Disguiser, with his quick thinking and suave espionage skills quickly helped him gain attention and become a household name. Along with the success of The Disguiser, Wang Kai’s emotional and upright Prince Jing in Nirvana in Fire, determined to bring justice and restore the honor of his kingdom further assured his fame.
Wang Kai has gone on to star in several popular dramas such as Love Me, If You Dare (2015) and Ode to Joy (2016), as well as two new dramas, Stay With Me (2016) and When a Snail Falls in Love (2016). He is also set to star in Jackie Chan and Ding Sheng’s film, Railroad Tigers in December 2016 as well as Suspect X. His acting skills and hard work have also helped him win awards and reach career success.

    I think since my biggest love Takeshi Kaneshiro, I didn't have this much obsession for some guy. Kai Kai is still currently the most intriguing one for me and I can't wait to see him more, so happy he's getting recognition as an actor cause he is amazing. ♥♥♥

    Plus he has the most sexiest voice in the whole world. Period. ;)

    He is so great as prince Jing and I heard that he uses his own voice in dramas which is awesome, his voice is so deep and sexy. ;)

      China's got many different dialects/tonal variations so it's possible that a lot of the actors/actresses they hire may sound different and it'll be jarring to watch/listen so I guess it's easier to dub them to "standardize" the dialogue.

      That and it's probably cheaper to do voice overs instead of spending so much on sound equipment. There's other things too, I bet. Like, if schedules are tight, it's easier for a VA to fill in and move on with filming or there'll be a lot of background noise or sound effects to be put in, it's easier to get that done with dubbing.

      He does sing! He sang for the OST for Nirvana in Fire, and also one for New Detective Squad. At an awards ceremony recently he also sang the OST for The Disguiser. He has a gorgeous and lovely singing voice and is also really great at singing! He is so talented! If you need more info about Wang Kai, I'm the admin for Wang Kai International ^^ we have LOTS of info about him there.

      Hey sorry for the late reply. Yeah, I'm the admin there. I've never really posted on mydramalist before and the notifications didn't go to my email. Well Wang Kai knows about the site and I've met his manager, and she was super friendly. So I think we're doing okay ;) Of course sharing and commenting on WKI are always welcome.
