Mainland Chinese martial arts actor, 44-year-old Wu Jing (吳京), defeated several raging hot and popular young male celebrities by ranking first in the list of 100 Most Handsome faces in the Asia-Pacific region. The annual list is released by TC Candler for the Independent Critics.
Beating out South Korean boy band BTS member Jeon Jung Kook and many of China’s pop idols including #8 Kris Wu (吳亦凡), #9 Jackson Wang (王嘉爾), #12 Deng Lun (鄧倫), #13 TFBoys member Jackson Yee (易烊千玺), and #15 Lay Zhang (張藝興), this result had many surprised.
Wu Jing scored successful box office hits with his self-directed and self-acted movies, Wolf Warrior <战狼> and Wolf Warrior 2 <战狼2>, in 2015 and 2017 respectively. He also met expectations with his performance in the latest Chinese sci-fi film The Wandering Earth <流浪地球>, which grossed an overwhelming 5.8 billion yuan at the box office.
Wu Jing actor is touted as one of China’s biggest action stars and is even set to star alongside global action star Jackie Chan (成龍) in an epic action movie that revolves around them climbing Mount Everest. As an acclaimed action star, Wu Jing works hard to master his craft and has successfully earned the recognition of many audiences through his realistic action scenes where every punch is seen ruthlessly thrown and received. His contributions to Chinese action films were acknowledged with him being awarded the Excellent Actor award at the 17th China Huabiao Film Awards Ceremony.
Given his tough exterior, many may think he would be a person difficult to approach. But Wu Jing actually has a soft side to him and is a loving family man. Though some were suspicious of the rankings being fake, a netizen had defended the actor by pointing out it was well-deserved since Wu Jing holds the record for China’s highest box office sales.
