Entering TVB in 2001 and joining the station’s artiste training class, Hoffman Cheng (鄭世豪) played minor characters until his breakout performance in 2013’s singing competition, The Voice of the Stars <星夢傳奇>. Becoming a favorite during the competition, Hoffman was finally recognized by viewers. Receiving his second breakthrough in popular sitcom Come Home Love: Lo and Behold <愛·回家之開心速遞>, Hoffman quickly became a household name and his finances turned around.
Appearing in TVB reality talk show, How to Buy a House <我要做業主>, Hoffman revealed that he grew up living in public housing and had entered the workforce early in his life. He never considered buying a home until marrying his wife in 2013. Grateful for his wife’s unending support during his toughest times, Hoffman made plans to buy a home so they can live more comfortably.
Hoffman’s home ownership dreams were also motivated by what Nick Cheung (張家輝) said in one of his movies. “There was a movie called Temporary Family <失戀急讓> where Nick played a real estate agent. He wore a suit and turned to the camera to say, ‘When is the right time to buy a home. The right time to buy a home is when you can afford one,’ and that quote was quickly ingrained in my mind,” the actor recalled.
