Hangeng wins against Super Junior for ‘Best Asia Act’

Hangeng, an ex-member of Super Junior, beat his former group and three other singers to win the ‘Best Asia Act’ in the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA).

Hangeng was chosen through online voting over Korea’s Super Junior, Taiwan’s Jolin Tsai, Japan’s EXILE and Malaysia’s Yuna.

MTV described Hangeng as the “the most influential male celebrity in China”. The Chinese Mando-pop singer and actor HanGeng is undoubtedly dominating Southeast Asia. In 2005, he debuted in South Korea as the only Chinese member of Super Junior & the leader of its Chinese squad SJ-M but eventually left to focus on a solo career in 2009. His 1st solo album sold over a million copies and tickets to his 1st concert sold out in a record-breaking 37 minutes.

Hangeng will now be competing with Gotye, who won as Best Australia/New Zealand Act. Voters will choose between the two who will represent the Asia Pacific region in the MTV EMA's Worldwide Act category.
