Wang was actually the biological child of his uncle and aunt and was given to his current parents. Due to the media frenzy created in Taiwan over this, Wang briefly refused to give interviews to Taiwanese media.  Wang has also learned basic English and is able to give interviews to American media without an interpreter.
Wang pitched for the Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) national baseball team in the 2002 Asian Games. In 2004, as the apparent ace of the staff, Wang led the Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) team to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. Against Australia, he allowed just three hits with no walks, and at one point retired nine batters in row, to earn the win. He also limited Japan to just five hits in the first six innings; however, the Japanese rallied in the seventh inning against Wang to tie the game with three runs. Japan won the game, preventing Taiwan from advancing to the next round.
He is the third major leaguer from Taiwan, following Dodgers outfielder Chin-Feng Chen and Rockies pitcher Chin-Hui Tsao, and is by far the most successful. Since being called up to the majors, Wang has been idolized in his native country where all of his games are televised nationwide, many on big screens to large audiences. This is still true even though he decided not to pitch in the 2006 World Baseball Classic.
