BiographyEdit

Jiro Wang was born August 24, 1981, in Taiwan. 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 he showed his looks at a competition. BMG, the label that signed him, planned to package him with Jay Chou and Jordan Chan to form a boy band called 3J, but, because of 9/11, BMG's stocks crashed and the 3J plan was scrapped.[1] 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 understand conversational 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 with lyrics composed by Jiro. After that, the band changed the name to Dong Cheng Wei (東城衛) without changing the members in the band. The band never received much popularity until Jiro joined Fahrenheit.

When he was 18, his father died, leaving him with his mother to pay the family's debt. This forced him into the commercial and modeling industry. The commercials he has appeared in include one for Megniu (a yogurt brand) as part of Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit features in Suan Tian (among other songs) with the Taiwanese girl group S.H.E.

Because of Jiro's poor health, he often loses his voice, so he always has the medicine his mom prepared for him. Behind the stage, he's always quiet because the doctor told him not to talk as much if he doesn't want to lose his voice; because of Xerophthalmia, he once couldn't complete the filming because he couldn't open his eyes. He also has Rhinitis which occasionally causes his speech to sound like it is coming from his nose.
