Chaing Wu was a fictional character from the ABC daytime drama General Hospital.
He was played by Aki Aleong in 1985.
The Wu mob family was headed by Mr. Wu.
In 1985, Sean Donely steals an Aztec treasure and intends to sell it to a Chinese man named Mr. Wu. Donely's plan, however, is foiled by Robert Scorpio. Two stolen jade Buddhas from the treasure are then given to Mr. Wu by the New York police; but he is then forced to give them to their rightful owner, a wise old Chinese man called The Ancient One.
The Ancient One explains that the true valuable part of the Buddhas is actually the black pearls within their eyes. He plans to sell the pearls to finance the acquisition of the Port Charles cannery for his Asian people who are being oppressed by an unfair labor system.
The pearls, however, are gone. Mr. Wu is actually the oppressor and has had the pearls stolen. He did not, however, know how valuable they are. When he hears of their value, he instructs his grandson Kim to get them back.
While Robin Scorpio-Drake is with Frisco Jones and Felicia Scorpio, an Asian man attempts to grab her doll while walking on the water front. Mr. Wu is enraged and fears that Frisco might be able to identify his grandson Kim as the thief, so he orders Frisco's execution. He has Frisco's jacket poisoned, but then Frisco's friend Josh wears it instead, and dies. Robert then realizes that Robin is Anna Devane's daughter, and that he is her father.
Sean Donely is pardoned by the governor and released. He then goes to help Mr. Wu find the pearls. Robin's doll is then stolen by an Asian delivery woman. An Asian man named Tey is killed when he is hit by a car, and Frisco and Robert decide that Frisco will go undercover. Frisco poses as the driver that killed Tey because he is eager to find out who has killed his friend Josh.
Robin then overhears that Anna and Robert are her parents. The lie upsets her and she runs away. She finds her doll at General Hospital, and then meets The Ancient One in the Asian Quarter. The Ancient One tells her about the black pearls, and she tells him that she knows where they are, in her doll's eyes.
The Ancient One then gives the pearls to Olin, a kindly Asian woman, for safekeeping. The Ancient One gets information from Robin about how to get her home, but when they go to meet Anna and Buzz, they are kidnapped by Kim.
Robert and Anna set up headquarters in the Bamboo Bar to find Robin, not knowing that Robin and The Ancient One are actually being kept in a secret room at the bar. Robin and The Ancient One are finally rescued by Robert and Anna just before Thanksgiving. The Ancient One exchanges the pearls for cash and the Asian community purchases the cannery.
Robert and Sean then join with The Ancient One's grandson Yank (also Tey's brother) to take down Mr. Wu, who has been operating an illegal drug-selling operation. Frisco and Kim battle to the death. Just as Kim is about to knife Frisco, Yank appears and hits Kim over the head killing him instantly.
Kim's sister, Jade, is devastated to find out that her lover Yank killed her brother, and she suddenly goes blind. Mr. Wu then confesses his wrongdoing to Jade before being carted off to prison; and, being free of shame and guilt, her eyesight is restored.
On March 7, 1986, Jade is shocked to read that Mr. Wu has jumped bail.
On January 24, 2014, it is revealed that Brad Cooper is the son of Kim Wu and great-grandson of Mr. Wu and that they are both dead. His biological mother died giving birth to him. Brad was actually adopted and was forced to go searching for his biological roots on his own.
The Wu Family returns in 2015 at a Five Families Mob summit in New York City called by Sonny Corinthos. A representative of the Wu Family was present named Selina Wu.
