Louis Koo Makes Millions With Help From Feng Shui Masters
This year marks Louis Koo’s (古天樂) 20th year in the entertainment industry. Since entering TVB in 1993, Louis had successfully changed his image from pale-faced TV idol to today’s movie superstar. Despite minor missteps, Louis’s career had sailes smoothly under the guidance of several famed directors, including Johnnie To (杜琪峯).
Louis’s more recent successes Overheard <竊聽風雲> and Don’t Go Breaking My Heart <單身男女> further raised his profile, attracting endorsement deals and major film projects. With ample money-making opportunities, Louis is now one of the top-earners in the industry, making over $100 million HKD per year.
The secret to Louis’s good fortune was recently revealed. Reporters discovered that Louis sought guidance from a well-known Thai fortune teller to prevent bad luck and to boost his career. Known as the “Calculator Oracle”, the fortune teller is said to make accurate predictions with his calculator by entering a client’s birth date using just his right thumb and pinky finger. Louis also visits a Feng Shui master in Hong Kong to further improve his luck. Popular among Hong Kong celebrities, Master Miu was rumored to be the force behind Nick Cheung (張家輝) and Wayne Lai’s (黎耀祥) meteoric rise to the top of the entertainment industry.
Heeding the feng shui masters’ advice over the past ten years, Louis’s career quickly gained steam, filming up to six movies a year in addition to countless advertisement and endorsement opportunities.
Although his finances seem secured under the guidance of these two grand masters, Louis remains a hard-working actor. Currently filming Benny Chan’s (陳木勝) The Cartel War <掃毒> in Thailand, Louis is often seen visiting the gym, toning his body for his role as a narcotics police officer. Despite sustaining several major injuries during his previous films, Louis continues to perform his own stunts on the set. With his fearless determination and blessings from the two masters, Louis will surely be able to take his career to greater heights.
