David Kang is the main man behind David Kang Casting. A veteran in the showbiz industry, he started his career in Hollywood as early as 1997, when he founded Combat Casting. Drawing from his four-year experience serving at the U.S. Marine Corps, he established an agency that was dedicated to casting real-life heroes from the military, law enforcement, and firefighting industries on TV and film productions. Combat Casting became so successful that David was able to establish another company just one year after: Networks Casting Services. The company was able to book 400 extras every single day for five years, and it became one of the most sought after extras’ management companies in Los Angeles, California.
David then joined Background Players as Office Manager, where he was able to cast background players for Hollywood films such as Ball of Fury, World Trade Center, Disturbia, and Rent. With the blessing of Background Players, David then ventured to establish his own company: David Kang Casting. In 2006, the company was able to book actors on commercials such as American Express, BMW, Budweiser, Intel, Johnson and Johnson, McDonalds, T-Mobile, and Walmart. He also booked background actors on music videos for artists such as Black Eyed Peas, Bob Dylan, Britney Spears, David Bowie, Enrique Iglesias, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Pink, Rod Stewart, Taylor Swift, and Usher.
No doubt, David Kang is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry.
