Soon after the Avex Taiwan competition, Wang was called again and given a chance to go to Japan. In order to pursue her dreams, she decided to take on the challenge and go to Avex Taiwan's music studio in Japan to learn dancing and singing for 3 months from various famous lecturers(such as Hamasaki Ayumi, BoA, Utada Hikaru, Namie Amuro,& Hitomi). This was very successful as she learned quickly. She earned herself a graduation certificate with impressive results and records from Japan's Avex Trax.
