Better known by his stage name Winwin, Dong Sicheng, a lead dancer and lead rapper with the K-pop boy band NCT and its China sub-unit WayV, has gotten a foot in the door in acting. Fans of the star have seen this coming and even began calling him a ‘wactor’ (portmanteau of ‘Winwin’ and ‘actor’) long before any official announcements were made.

Catch Winwin in the following C-dramas that will air in the second half of 2022:

The first, a supernatural fantasy show set in China when it was known as the Republic of China (1912 until 1949), is an adaptation of author Ni Luo’s novel of the same title, The Shadow or Ru Yue in Mandarin.

Directed by Li Muge, the show begins with soldiers attacking a vampire. Respectively played by Taiwanese actress and singer Ouyang Nana and Winwin, a blind girl and her friend end up saving the centuries-old being.

Winwin will also assume a leading role in 25 Hours of Love, a romance drama produced by Chinese entertainment conglomerate Tencent. The 24-year-old ‘wactor’ and 35-year-old Chinese actress He Hongshan will respectively play a voice actor and an entrepreneur in the TV show.

Calling themselves ‘Yunqis,’ fans of Winwin are psyched for the modern romance program, which is being filmed at the time of writing.

Encouraging messages from ‘Yunqis’ on Chinese microblogging platform Weibo range from, “That was not an easy jump [from singing to acting]. Congrats, Sicheng!” to “Go for it, actor Dong Sicheng!”
