So has old fresh meat replaced young fresh meat?
Perhaps not. But Mr Wang’s physicality, notable in a society where men rarely highlight their attractiveness, also sets an example in a nation that is growing older fast.
“People can change their life as many times as they wish,” he said. Having a goal is important, he said.
“Being mentally healthy means you know what you’re going to do,” he said. “For example, a vegetable vendor, when he wakes up, he has a goal, he works hard. And when he finishes, he feels fulfilled.”
For Mr Wang, fulfillment comes in many forms: acting, modeling, exercising and creating art.
