The drama drought of 2015 ended with The Disguiser and Nirvana in Fire, and they left behind them a new appreciation for actors who has both the looks and the acting skills. Actor Wang Kai s no doubt one of the biggest winner of the two shows.
But with great power comes great responsibility. He managed to sneak in at least 22 photoshoots for major magazines as well as multiple award ceremonies in between filming in the past two months. Other than finishing Ode to Joy in November, the actor has just finished up filming Railroad Tigers with Jackie Chan and Huang Zitao (Exo) on the 15th. He flew to Shanghai the next day to shoot character posters for Leave Me, Catch Me with Joe Chen Qiao’en and Kimi Qiao Renliang. The day after that, Beijing for a charity event and award ceremony.
On the 16th, Wang Kai has also been announced as the lead for Daylight Entertainment’s new detective series, 如果蜗牛有爱情, also by Ding Mo of Love Me If You Dare but thank goodness with a new scriptwriter. He plays (for the 4th time) a police/detective, but this time smarter, stockier, more mature, and finally has a girlfriend.
All three of his series have been pre-ordered and are set for 2016 releases, as is the film. More of the L’Officiel Hommes photoshoot, his first but certainly not last magazine cover, below the cut. I’ll do a photoshoot round-up soonish, because I have never seen an actor do this many photoshoots in such a short amount of time.
