History[edit]

2003

This 5-man dance group, K One, was formed by Rio Peng, with his company Corvette Entertainment (the name Corvette was later abandoned in 2006 in favour of Wingman Entertainment). However, K One did not do well with their first album; a very likely reason is that Peng did not wish to involve his own artistes with 5566, hoping that K One would make a name for themselves. Another possible reason is that there was already another popular dance group, Energy, in existence; due to this, few people were excited about the arrival of K One. However, Peng ultimately did place K One with Jungiery the following year.

2004

After K One was placed under Jungiery, they were soon put to act in the idol drama, Top on the Forbidden City 紫禁之巔. This idol drama had a lead cast roster of Gino and JR, and Joanne from the girl group Sweety. To help up this drama's fame, Sam Wang from 5566 also played a supporting role in the drama, and the theme song for this drama, Twist The Fate 风云变色, was a collaborated work by both 5566 and K-One. This strategy was once again successful; K One's fame rose sharply.

2005

Their book Heaven and Hell came out January 30, on Gino's birthday. Their second album Love Power 勇敢去愛 came out in May. Darren acts in Mr. Fighting 格鬥天王 with 5566 and Sweety. Gino acts in The Prince Who Turns Into A Frog 王子變青蛙 with 183 Club and 7 Flowers. Kido acts in Green Forest, My Home 綠光森林 with Sweety and Leon Jay Williams. JR acts in Bear Family Physicans (Dr. Da Xiong) 大熊醫師家 with 謝祖武 and 寇乃馨. Other members acts in here for a few episodes.

2006

Their contract ended with Jungiery and they decided to go back to Wingman. Third album Love Story of Romeo and Juliet 愛的故事-羅密歐與朱利葉 came out in October. Gino and Darren acts in Smiling Pasta 微笑Pasta with Cyndi Wang, Nicholas Teo, and 7 Flowers' Joyce Zhao (Xiao Qiao). Li Yang acts in Star Apple Garden (Legend of Star Apple) 星蘋果樂園 with Matthew Ming Dao from 183 Club, Achel Chang, and Evonne Hsu. Darren is a cameo in here.

Wingman first CD, Wingman 2007 翼之星 2007, came out with all their singers in it and former 55666 member Rio Peng, the boss. Also their single The King's Way 王道 came out in November. JR acts in Kendo Love 劍道愛 with Evan Yo and Yang Ya Zhu 杨雅筑. Darren acts in a movie, Island Etude 练习曲, with Tung Ming Hsiang.
