Bryan Wong (Chinese: ; pinyin: Wáng Lùji?ng, born on 30 January 1971) is a MediaCorp TV actor and television host. He is also known as one of the Hosting Kings (?) of MediaCorp and frequently co-hosts with Kym Ng.[1]

Career

Wong began his career as a child actor in 1981 and featured in several popular children's programmes on SBC.[2] He began performing modelling assignments and commercials while still a teenager. In 1994, he joined TCS as a full-time artiste after a short stint as an interior designer. Although his first hosting role was for the teenage lifestyle programme Gen Y, it was the infotainment programme City Beat during the late 1990s that first exposed him to television audiences. While his co-hosts Kym Ng and Sharon Au were winning awards at the annual Star Awards, he was not well received by the general public. He later stated that he had planned to resign several times but did not have a choice as he had to support his family.[3] In 2000 he and several fellow artistes left TCS to join the newly formed SPH MediaWorks.[4] While with MediaWorks, he became known for co-hosting Channel U's popular talent-search show Snap with Ng and their partnership was praised by audiences.[5] He was nominated for Best Entertainment Presenter at the 2002 Asian Television Awards. In 2005, MediaCorp (successor of TCS) absorbed MediaWorks and he was one of nineteen artistes transferred over.

As an actor, Wong is a recognised face in mainland China after starring in a number of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan productions while with SPH MediaWorks, most notably in Eternity: A Chinese Ghost Story and the wuxia series Chinese Paladin. He played the main lead role in MediaWorks' final drama series Zero and also starred in Honour and Passion opposite Tay Ping Hui, Huang Wenyong and Rui En.

Since returning to MediaCorp, Wong has enjoyed more success as a host. He co-hosted the popular long-running home makeover show Home Decor Survivor () with Mark Lee,[6] for which he won his first hosting award, the Best Variety Show Host award, at the 2006 Star Awards. His popularity has remained high since as he was voted the Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes from 2005 to 2012 and won his tenth in 2013, which means he will be awarded the All-Time Favourite Artiste at the 2014 ceremony. He won the Favourite Variety Show Host audience poll, beating hot favourite Fann Wong, at the 2012 Star Awards.[3]

Personal life

Bryan Wong grew up in a kampong in Kembangan in 70s - 80s Singapore. He lives with his sister, Varilyn "Val" and his mother, Margaret in an apartment in Bedok.

Wong was educated at Tanjong Katong Secondary Technical School, where he first discovered an interest in "do it yourself" interior designing and carpentry.

He now co-owns an interior design firm called 'Home by Bryan Wong' which does not accept walk in customers.[6]
