Huang Bo

For Chinese moviegoers, it's been a long "Huang Bo season" since Christmas, with box office winners Say Yes, Lost in Thailand and Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons occupying the cinema. Netizens joked on Sina Weibo that "It's like Huang Bo, owns all the cinemas in China." And just when the audience might think Huang was finally fading off of the big screen, his latest film The Chef, The Actor, The Scoundrel is due out in late March.

"They just accidentally all came out at the same time," Huang wrote in an e-mail to Global Times. He described his situation over the past couple of years as walking with his head down, not caring about how far he had gone.

But it was not only those popular films that made Huang a hot topic. There has been the television series A Unique Militiaman, stage drama To Live directed by Meng Jinghui, and microfilms Huang directed himself, as well as releasing a few singles and hosting the 49th Golden Horse Awards ceremony last year. You might say Huang has been "walking" really fast.

The long way to fame

It seems like it took only a few years for Huang, 39, to suddenly turn from obscure actor to superstar in China. Now, nearly everyone knows he is a gifted actor, but he's also good at dancing and singing, and after two years at the Beijing Film Academy, he became an expert at dubbing and doing voice impersonations. In an era where the screens are filled with handsome leading men, Huang is perfectly suited for the character roles.
