Wang took part in a talent contest held by Avex Taiwan in 2003. After the competition, she was called again and given a chance to go to Japan. In order to pursue her dream, she decided to take on the challenge and go to Avex's music studio in Japan to learn singing and dancing for three months. She earned herself a graduation certificate with impressive performance from Avex Trax. These achievements made Avex Taiwan impressed with her, and she was offered a contract by Avex Taiwan.
