Reinstating his role as Wang Da Dong (KO. 3) in time-traveling teen drama, KO One Return <终极一班2>, Jiro Wang (汪东城) wore a skirt in an angel outfit and revealed his muscular thighs, resulting in fans giving him the “Muscle Angel” nickname.

In one scene of KO One Return, Jiro had to don an angel’s costume. The white sleeveless costume was made up of a belted dress and a huge pair of angel wings. The transparent material left nothing to the imagination. Jiro reportedly adored the pair of wings so much that he was often seen posing as Cupid in it, much to the amusement of the crew. When viewers saw his angel costume, they joked that Jiro is “an angel with a devil’s body,” due to his good looks and muscular body.

Thirty-one-years-old Jiro continues to capture viewers’ affection 7 years after the initial KO One was released. In 2005, Jiro took on the male lead of Taiwanese idol drama,  KO One <终极一班> and was idolized by Taiwanese teens. Today, he continues to set hearts fluttering again with his portrayal of a 18-year-old high school student, Wang Da Dong.

In KO One Return, Wang Da Dong had to deliver the real Liu Bei back to the Silver Dimension, and as a result, he encountered an inter-dimensional timequake and was thrown to ten years in the future. In this future, his leadership is threatened by King, played by Ceng Pei Ci (曾沛慈).

Boy Band Fahrenheit

Finding initial success in Fahrenheit, Jiro and the other boy band members quickly became popular idols. It has been 7 years since the four members of Fahrenheit got together, and a reunion is long due. When Wu Chun (吳尊) left the group to focus his career on acting and to spend more time with his family last year, the remaining 3 members, including Jiro, have been busy with their own individual solo albums.

On Friday, Aaron Yan (炎亞綸) and Calvin Chen (辰亦儒) separately reminisced on their Weibo that they would love to get back together as a group and perform on stage. Jiro also posted up an old photograph of the four members 7 years ago. Fans were touched and rumors that they could not get along with each other are thus crushed.

      It’s a new series.

      It’s a continuation of KO3anguo (the 3rd series in the KO trilogy).

      From the synopsis, I gather that the series will be set in Gold Dimension, but, 10 years in the future. So, we won’t see Da Dong’s old friends like Ya Se and Xiao Yu, but, will meet new people instead.

    I don’t know whether I want to watch this sequel or not with only Da Dong remains. I want to see Xiao Yu, Ya Se and Lex.

    I’ve followed the production news of this series earlier on when I first heard of it’s planned production. Arron Yan was supposed to return as well if it didn’t conflict with his schedule. At that time, the filming time has not been set yet. I guess Arron ended up couldn’t make it.

    There’s also rumours that Arron didn’t want to play second fiddler to Jiro KO One Return. But, I believe the scheduling conflict rumour more.

      Yea, that’s how it is when you make sequals and the original cast just can’t make it, so you at times question if you want to watch it or not. I personally get a bit disappointed too, however, you get over it and learn and adjust to liking the new cast too. It isn’t that big of a deal after you get used to the new cast and all…Basically, just give them a chance..
