A new Chinese romantic drama gives us a new opportunity to meet a rising leading man. In this case, it's William Chan, who stars as the warrior prince who falls irresistibly for a beautiful sorceress in Lost Love in Times

1. He loves singing! 

William Chan (aka Chan Waiting) got his start by winning several awards at the International Chinese New Talent Singing Championship Hong Kong regional finals in 2003, when he was only 18 years old. For his love of singing and dancing, he gave up the opportunity to attend college in the UK. He then hosted Hong Kong's Saturday Disney program for the teens for several years. He joined the boys group Sun Boy'Z in 2006 but went solo in 2008.

2. He also shines in acting!

He debuted in acting in 2009 and has been focusing his career mostly in mainland China since 2013. His fame greatly rose with the 2014 Swords of Legends, which won him the Most Popular All-Around Artist and Media's Most Anticipated Actor awards at the 6th China TV Drama Awards. His star has continued to rise. In 2016, he starred in the web-drama Mystic Nine, which smashed viewing records and won him Person of the Year award at the iQiyi All-Star Carnival.

3. He loves taking selfies! 

In real life, William is very much a modern guy and loves to post to his social media accounts and stays engaged with his fans.

4. He is single, at least officially. 

For fangirls who want to know: the handsome leading man dated Hong Kong singer-actress Charlene Choi for five years but broke up in 2015. Apparently their busy careers kept them apart.

Now, at the age of 31, William Chan is a successful singer-actor whose stature is further elevated by his leading-man role in the fantasy romance, Lost Love in Times, in which he plays Prince Yuan Ling, who is willing to give up the kingdom for the love of a beautiful sorceress (Cecilia Liu). Is it fate that the star-crossed lovers will meet again in another universe?
