    Jiro Wang (Fahrenheit)

    Jiro Wang (traditional Chinese: 汪東城; simplified Chinese: 汪东城; pinyin: Wāng Dōngchéng), nicknamed Da Dong (traditional Chinese: 大東; simplified Chinese: 大东) is a Taiwanese actor and singer. He is currently a member of the boy band Fahrenheit, and is widely known as the male lead in the Taiwanese idol drama KO One (終極一班) and it sequel The X-Family, as Ah Jin in It Started With a Kiss and its sequel, and Jin Xiu Yi in the live-action Taiwanese drama, Hana-Kimi (花樣少年少女).
    Jiro Wang was born August 24, 1981, in Taiwan coming from a poor background. He graduated at Fu Shin Trade and Arts College with a degree in Advertising Design. After his graduation he dedicated his life toward the entertainment business. He was first asked to join the entertainment business because of his good looks and singing talent that he showed at a singing competition. BMG, the label that signed him, planned to package him with Jay Chou and Jordan Chan to form a boyband called 3J, but because of 9/11, BMG's stocks crashed and the 3J plan was scrapped. Jiro then decided to continue his career in the industry by working backstage, mainly in charge of fashion designing and other designing necessities, as well as commercial modeling. He was approached again around 2004, when his acting career began.

    He speaks fluent Taiwanese and Mandarin, and understands conversational Cantonese and English.

    He used to play in an underground band named Karma as the lead singer. They have performed a song called 人間逃亡記, lyrics composed by Jiro. After that, the band changed the name to Dong Cheng Wei (東城衛). However, the members in the band remained the same.

    When he was 18, his father died, leaving him with his single mother to pay the family's debt. This forced him into the commercial and modeling industry. Some of the commercials he has appeared in include one for Mei Nu (a kind of yogurt). He is also featured in Suan Tian with the female Taiwanese band S.H.E. .

    "Because of poor health, he often loses his voice, so he always has the medicine his mom prepared for him, Tong Da Hai. Behind the stage, he's always so quiet, only because the doctor told him if he doesn't want to lose his voice again then don't talk as much. And because of Xerophthalmia he once couldn't complete the filming because he couldn't open his eyes. he also has Rhinitis which is why when he sings it sounds like the sound is coming from his nose."
