Career as an actress

Wenwen made her debut appearance in 2007 in the TV war series “Zhong guo xiong di lian” (“Z Hongguo Brothers Company”) which starred Cheng Chang, Wenwen Han, and Yuncheng Song, and which follows a made-up war in Japan.

In 2010, she appeared in “The Karate Kid”, but then focused on dancing rather than acting, and didn’t make her next appearance until 2018 in the action drama fantasy movie “Ink & Rain”, in which she portrayed a Female VIP.

The movie was directed by Dallas King and written by Liu Ziming and Fang Liu, while it starred Tamra Dae, Julia Fae, and Mariam Saraj, and follows several fighters who will do whatever it takes to win their freedom in the post-apocalyptic world they are living in, until they find out that they are actually only characters in a comic book. The movie has a rather poor rating of 4.8/10, on the movie and TV series rating website IMDb.com, and hasn’t won nor been nominated for any awards.

Wenwen has recently been cast to star in the drama series “Hai mei ai gou”, which also stars Lei Feng and Geng Han, and is about several people living in a small town who are all somehow romantically linked to one another.

Wenwen is currently focused on her career as a dancer, and there are many videos on YouTube featuring her dancing.

Love life and relationships

Wenwen is very secretive when it comes to details of her private life, and she also keeps her Instagram account locked, making it hard to take a peek at her love life.

However, there are rumors circulating the internet that the popular actress might be a lesbian, due to the fact that she hasn’t talked about any men she might have dated while some of her fans have claimed to have seen Wenwen being rather too close with a woman.

In 2019, people started talking about Wenwen and Han Geng, a Chinese singer and actor, as if the two were in a relationship. They allegedly met on the set of the series “Hai mei ai gou” in late 2019, and according to the rumors have been dating since.

Han launched his career as a singer in 2001, when he became a member of the band Super Junior while he later became the frontman of the sub-band Super Junior-M in 2008. He left his agency and the band on 27 September 2011 after suing them, and then launched his career as a solo singer.
