Shine on the World Stage
At the 19th annual
MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV欧洲音乐大奖，EMAs) held in Frankfort, Germany this month, while PSY of South Korea was absolutely a hit, Han Geng of China made the Asian storm even stronger, beating out Rihanna (蕾哈娜) for Best Worldwide Act (全球最佳艺人).
Han Geng‘s award for Best Worldwide Act was handed out for only the second time. Rihanna, the 24-year-old Barbadian
beauty who had led with six nominations , went home empty-handed. South Korean Internetphenomenon[/wv] PSY clinched the [w]coveted
(被渴望的) Best Video prize (最佳音乐录影带大奖).
At the awarding ceremony, Han Geng, the first Chinese singer ever to win a MTV award, expressed his gratitude
to his fans, “It is you who‘ve brought this prize to Asia, to China. With your support and persistence
, Chinese music will surely become even better in the future!”
Born on February 9, 1984, Han is well known for his excellent dance skills, and was the only Chinese member of South Korean boy-band Super Junior, and the leader of its sub-group Super Junior-M.

In 2009, Han returned to China to start a solo
career. It turned out to be a great decision, leading him to the title of “the most influential male celebrity in China.”
His first solo album
titled Geng Xin (《庚心》), which was released in 2010, sold more than one million copies. And the tickets for his first solo concert sold out in just 37 minutes, setting a record in Chinese musical history.
Besides music, Han has also played roles in many films. In 2010, he was given the role as Deng Xiaoping in the movie The Founding of a Party (《建党伟业》)—which premiered
in June, 2011 in China-alongside scores of other famous Chinese stars. He was also in the movie My Kingdom (《大武生》), which was directed by Gao Xiaosong.
