After NCT member Lucas Wong (黃旭熙) was exposed for leeching off his ex-girlfriends and cheating, his work activities have been temporarily halted and his career may not be able to recover as negative rumors continue surfacing each day.
Pre Debut Rumors
Prior to his official debut in South Korea four years ago, netizens began digging information about the potential rising star. At the time, many were surprised to see the contrast in his looks from his old photos, and even questioned the possibility of a nose job.
Due to his good looks, he already had 10,000 Instagram followers when he was a student in Hong Kong. Part of the school track team, Lucas was very popular with the girls. There were photos of him kissing previous girlfriends and even videos of girls fighting over him, which was quite a hot topic before his debut.
However, the photos did not interfere with his debut in South Korea. In addition to being a part of NCT, he was also given opportunities to participate in WayV and Super M. After Jackson Wang (王嘉爾), Lucas became another Hong Kong artiste to find international stardom via K-pop.
Despite his financial success, Lucas did not share his wealth with his parents. It is said that his parents are still living in public housing in Hong Kong, and they operate a small shop. Lucas makes around 10 million Chinese yuan in just one season of Keep Running <奔跑吧>, yet he only spent money on his luxury goods and not his parents. A netizen who claimed to have had contact with WayV for work purposes learned that Lucas refused to send money home, and even got into a quarrel with his manager.
Amid the backlash, Lucas and Hendery‘s new single “Jalapeno” has been delayed. Many netizens expressed their dissatisfaction, and demanded that Lucas be removed from NCT to avoid affecting other members.
