Benz Hui Moves to Singapore After Leaving TVB
Since his TVB contract has already ended this past February, it’s speculated that veteran actor Benz Hui (許紹雄) will be permanently moving to Singapore to live with his wife and daughter.
Although the news didn’t come from Benz initially, Singapore’s District Councilwoman in the Nee Soon district, Lee Bee Wah (李美花), shared a photo of herself with Benz, captioning the photo, “Guess which Hong Kong TVB star will be our resident soon?”
Many netizens were wary about Benz’s choice of residence. The crime rate in this area is fairly high in contrast to other parts of Singapore. Apparently, many strange occurrences have happened in the Nee Soon district, including a series of unsolved cat murders. In the fall of 2015, a total of 7 cats were mysteriously killed in the span of 12 days, making residents believe that the place is cursed. Even BBC covered the mysterious case of cat murders.
When interviewed about his reasons in relocating to Singapore, Benz commented he met his wife in Singapore in the 1980s while working there. Their daughter, Charmaine, was also born in Singapore. Benz had split his time in Hong Kong and Singapore before, and owns properties in both cities. He is very familiar with Singapore, and is not bothered by rumors about the Nee Soon district.
In order to clamp down on the negativity surrounding the area of Nee Soon, the city disclosed statistics showcasing that the crime rates have been steadily declining in the last couple of years. The city also explained that Nee Soon was ranked on the lower end in comparison to other cities with the highest crime rates.
