Han Geng (born February 9, 1984), is a Mainland Chinese pop singer and actor well-known for his powerful dance skills. He is skillful in all China’s 56 ethnic traditional dances, as well as ballet and hip-hop dance. This has won him the title of “Dancing King” in China. He is also known as “King Of Popularity” due to his overwhelming popularity in China. In 2001, he was chosen by SM Entertainment (SME) to become a member of South Korean boy band Super Junior, which debuted in 2005, and as the leader of its sub-group Super Junior-M in 2008. On December 21, 2009, Han Geng filed a lawsuit against SME to terminate his contract as he felt the 13-year contract was unlawful and overly restrictive.
For his various contributions to the spread of Chinese culture, Han Geng was also chosen to become a torch bearer for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, becoming the first boy band member in history to hold this role.
