King can be a Chinese Surname

She can speak Mandarin,so she must be a Chinese origin,perhaps from Hongkong.

... Or she could have been adopted by an American family.

Many Korean children were.

Yeah,I thought it's Korean surname,but after seeing her profile in wtatour.com,I think she is from Hongkong.

Uhhh...she's not Korean. The Bangalore website made a huge mistake and posted a random Korean girl as her...She's ethnically Chinese, parents immigrated to America from Taiwan. Last names tricky as is the first, the first thought most people have is that she's either Russian because of her first name, Vania, or African-American due to her last name, King.

:) Go USA! :lick:
