2006–08: Lust, Caution and ban

In July 2006, Tang Wei was selected from more than 10,000 actresses to appear in Ang Lee's Lust, Caution (2007). Tang Wei plays the film's main character, Wong Chia-chi, inspired by the story of the executed spy Zheng Pingru. Tang Wei learned both Shanghainese and the related Suzhou dialect for her role. After the film premiered, Tang Wei received wider fame throughout and beyond China. She won the Golden Horse Award for Best New Performer and was nominated for the Independent Spirit Award.

Despite her success, China's State Administration of Radio Film and Television (SARFT) ordered a media ban due to Tang Wei's performance of sexual acts in Lust, Caution. All print ads and feature content using Tang Wei were removed, and her endorsements were discontinued. She was set to star in Tian Zhuangzhuang's budget period film The Warrior and the Wolf (2009), but was replaced by Maggie Q. In February 2009, during her absence from the movie industry, she was reported to have briefly attended drama classes at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom.

2010-2011: Return to the screen

Tang Wei returned to mainstream cinema with two major films; Speed Angels, a car-racing flick directed by Jingle Ma and Dragon, a martial arts epic directed by Peter Chan. Though Speed Angels was a commercial flop, Dragon was successful and was named the eighth best movie of 2012 according to Time magazine.

What shown in her BaZi that make her to being banned and disappear from movie industry and what made Tang Wei returned to mainstream cinema?

2013–present: Career resurgence

In 2013, Tang Wei starred opposite actor Wu Xiubo in the Xue Xiaolu directed romantic comedy Finding Mr. Right. She plays a girl who goes to Seattle to give birth to a child by her wealthy, married boyfriend. The sleeper hit grossed $85 million at the box office in China and Tang Wei received rave reviews for her performance. Shanghai newspaper City Weekend wrote, "The most compelling element of the movie however, is still Tang Wei herself. It is a testament to her on-screen charisma that such a shrill, materialistic, and generally awful character can have the audience rooting for her."

Tang Wei was then cast to play Xiao Hong, a writer known for depictions of hunger and poverty in China during the 1920s and '30s in Ann Hui's biopic The Golden Era, which closed at the Venice International Film Festival. Though the film was highly anticipated prior to its premiere, it received mixed reviews and failed to do well at the box office.

Tang Wei made her English-language film debut in Blackhat, an action thriller co-starring Chris Hemsworth. She also starred in A Tale of Three Cities, based on the wartime experiences of Jackie Chan's parents.

Tang Wei and Wu Xiubo then teamed up again to film the sequel to Finding Mr. Right, titled Book of Love. Book of Love was a huge commercial success and became the highest grossing Chinese romantic film of all time.

In 2017, Tang Wei was cast as the female lead of a detective film titled Long Day’s Journey Into Night, directed by Bi Gan. The same year, she announced her return to the small screen in the upcoming historical drama Empress of the Ming.

In 2019, Tang Wei starred in the drama film The Whistleblower directed by Xue Xiaolu.

Personal life

Tang Wei married South Korean film director Kim Tae-yong in 2014, in the front yard of the home of film legend Ingmar Bergman on the remote Swedish island of Fårö. A formal wedding ceremony was later held in Hong Kong, with only immediate family members as guests. August 2016, Tang Wei gave birth to their daughter, Summer.

Will she face any issues in her marriage in the future?
