Jing made his acting debut in the Chinese film Hot Summer Days (2010),[4] which won him a Best New Actor at the Beijing College Student Film Festival.[5] Since then, he has developed a passion for acting and started to focus on acting and refining skills by exploring different genres of film.[6]

In June 2011, Jing signed a recording deal with Seed Music, and released his debut eponymous studio album.[7][8] The album topped the charts in both mainland China and Taiwan, and won him a Global Chinese Golden Chart Award for Best New Artist.[9]

In 2016, Jing starred in the adventure film Time Raiders, which is based on the novel Tomb Raiders.[14] The film was a box office success, and was the only summer release in China to surpass 1 billion yuan.[15] He then featured in the romance film Love O2O, which is based on the novel under the same title, alongside Angelababy.[16] The same year, Jing was cast in the film A Rain Cloud in the Skydirected by Lou Ye.[17]

In February 2017, Jing released the Chinese version of the song "Beauty and the Beast" with Taiwanese singer Hebe Tien.[18] In December 2017, Jing was cast in the period mystery drama The Love of Hypnosis alongside Liu Yifei.[19]
