In 2006, Wang starred in the military drama Soldiers Sortie, playing a soldier who is slow at everything but who wins respect because of his strong faith and untiring efforts. The drama was a huge hit, and gained Wang wide critical acclaim and huge popularity.[9]

In 2009, Wang starred in another military drama, My Brother is Shun Liu as the title character.[10] The drama was another huge success for Wang.[11]
