Han Geng (SM Entertainment)
Han Geng, a Chinese pop singer and former member of K-pop group Super Junior, is set to join the cast of “Transformers 4.”
Hollywood director Michael Bay posted on his website, “He’s one of Asia’s top stars in the worlds of music, television, and movies and has become one of the most influential entertainers in China.”
Bay announced that some of the scenes would be filmed in China, so he would be casting six Chinese actors.
Han Geng will be joining a top-name cast that includes Chinese actress Li Bingbing, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammar for the movie slated to hit box offices on June 27, 2014.
The performer originally debuted as a member of Super Junior in 2005 but left the group in 2009 to pursue a solo career, moving from the K-pop arena into China’s entertainment scene.
While considered one of the most successful foreign singers to have debuted in Korea, in his native China, he is often dubbed “Dancing King” and “King of Popularity.”
