Many of us have already seen Bling Empire on Netflix and saw how the cast brought complexity to their characters, making the audience more interested in the unfolding plot and looking for more episodes to satisfy their curiosity.
As a result, Bling Empire returned with a second season starring Kevin Kreider, Kim Lee, and Kane Lim. But the small screen isn’t the only place loyal fans can watch Kane Lim.
This time around, Bling Empire’s Kane Lim is making a breakthrough on the big screen as he has begun working with Filipino-American film director Chris Soriano for a romantic comedy feature film.
A Different Genre
Chris Soriano, a passionate film director, earned recognition from both his peers and audiences for defying the odds through directing, producing and acting in an action film titled Almighty Zeus amid a pandemic recently showcased at Cannes Film Festival.
The movie is timely because it tackles the challenges of the pandemic, Asian hate crimes in the world of boxing, and how competitive the sport is. Chris’ early experiences inspired most of the scenes in the movie. He wanted to expose the violent and racial discriminative environment he saw when a gang in his neighbourhood in San Diego, California, hazed him at 13 years old.
Chris went from a dark and heavy topic and is now tapping into a different genre to work on a romantic comedy. He posted teaser photos on Instagram showing Kane in costume for the film.
Kane’s bright and patterned look is a stark contrast to Chris’s look in Zeus, showing that the director is getting into the mindset needed for a light and refreshing romantic comedy.
An Empire Kane Built
Before Kane became popular because of Netflix’s Bling Empire, he worked as a real estate developer and philanthropist. He comes from a wealthy Singaporean family, but he was keen on creating wealth for himself, prompting him to move to the United States of America early in 2010. There, he found the fortune he wanted to achieve.
He started his business at the age of 17 by investing in stocks and earned his first million at 20. Although his family is wealthy, he credits his different upbringing, where his father asks him to take public transportation to go to school, as the factor that made a difference in his career.
As his popularity continues to swell, Kane is exploring other aspects of himself to further discover what he’s capable of in life.
