Popularity Dropping, Hubert Wu Tries to Change His Luck Around

Once regarded as the biggest star to come out of The Voice Entertainment, Hubert Wu (胡鴻鈞) has faced a huge drop in popularity in past year due to a string of controversies. In April, various news reports alleged that Hubert had become arrogant and showed attitude, comparing himself to his industry seniors including Raymond Lam (林峯), leading TVB to freeze the singer and cut down his screen time in The Exorcist’s Meter 2.0 <降魔的2.0>.

In May, while filming for The Exorcist’s Meter 2.0, Hubert injured his head while performing a wire stunt, leading him to cancel and postpone other work to recover. It took him several months to recuperate fully.

Attracting bad luck all around, Hubert reportedly got the help of a fortune teller, which convinced him to change his car and move to a new home. Hubert allegedly spent over HK$300,000 to change his car and move houses. When the paparazzi spotted him earlier this week, they noted that he was dressed in monochrome colors and drove a gray car, which apparently were the colors that a fortune teller recommended him to use.

A source close to Hubert said, “The master did some calculations for Hubert, and found that he would be getting bad luck in these two years. That’s why he was recommended to move homes and to wear more black, gray, and other things related to the water element to change his luck around.”

Hubert has moved from his home in Ho Man Tin to a new apartment located in LOHAS Park, Tseung Kwan O. He also spent HK$300,000 to trade a new car.

Hubert made his debut in 2010 through the TVB singing competition The Voice 2 <超級巨星2>, winning second place. After releasing three certified albums his popularity reached another peak with his performance in 2017’s The Exorcist’s Meter. He was cast in his first lead role for 2018’s Wife Interrupted <救妻同學會>.

  1. If it is true then it lis disappointing for a younger to having resort to believing a fortune teller. Already shows he has strange personality issues already…

    1. @jimmyszeto Believing in fortune-telling does not mean you have a personality issue. Many younger generations in Asia are superstitious and believe in fortune telling. It’s the environment that they are raised. Asians raised oversees are probably not as superstitious because they are less exposed to it. My relatives in HK (yes, even the younger generations ones) are all superstitious in different ways. And so are their friends.

  2. Hate to burst his bubble but wearing stupid colors don’t help. He is better off trying 种生基 like what the Macao king does.

  3. Never knew a younger generation would even believe such superstitious things like my parents and her friends? haha lol…I’ve never watched that series so other than seeing his face here and there I have no idea whether he’s good or not but weird to see younger ppl believing in fortune telling.

    1. @wm2017 Oh many younger people in Asia are superstitious and believe in fortune telling because of the environment they are raised. We are just less exposed to superstition oversees or at least the Chinese superstitions. Oversees people are superstitious too but with different things like black cat, tarot cards, etc. I know family and friends (younger generations too) in Asia and oversees who are superstitious.

      1. @kokomo That’s true. They don’t have the 13th floor on the elevators either. Guess all races have different sort of superstitions. I am pretty sure my distant cousins/relatives in HK/China are probably all superstitious too whether they are old or young. I don’t really think much of it and I think most of my friends feel the same esp on the stuff like; name changing, moving your furniture to such and such, putting money in and grow more wealth. Seriously? sigh….

      2. @wm2017
        you will never know how superstitious they are until you talk to them. couldn’t believe my friend said something about the tai-sui year when i told her about our bad luck this year. don’t know if she really meant it as a joke or not but it sounded pretty ridiculous. my inlaws are all superstitious, they wouldn’t let us move homes unless it was a good day and it was the f-ing coldest day of the past century literally on record!!!! sister in laws also sought out spirits when she thought she had cancer instead of the doctor. maybe it’s really the gods, she turned out okay, it wasn’t cancer.

      3. @m0m0 Yeah, I know what you mean. Some can be a bit superstitious only but some can be overboard. I think my mom knows I don’t really follow or listen to her overly superstitious bs so she is not as crazy these days. When I moved she didn’t tell me to pick a good day or how my furniture should be facing this and that way but she did say BS about how my clock can’t be facing me directly in my 2nd apartment in my BR something about feng shui or whatever. lol… I didn’t want to her constant nagging so I moved the clock somewhere else not that I give a crapzzz her superstitious bs. haha lol…Good thing ur SIL didn’t have cancer whether or not it was the gods. I also don’t think praying to budda or jesus or whatever else will work but hey that’s just me. hhahaa lol…

      4. @m0m0 You are right about noting who is superstitious. Some of my friends have very good jobs, very modern in many way but they are superstitious in the closet.

      5. @wm2017 13th floor is bad luck too. I just learnt something, LOL. I thought it was only 4th floor or any things related to 4 is a big No.

      6. @foodie Yes, in the US I think 13 is something like Friday the 13th maybe so that wouldn’t be a good #. #4 is more for Chinese. like 4 is for die? So yes, I guess every country probably have their own superstitious stuff. It just depends on whether someone is just a minor or major superstitious person. Most Chinese are probably leaning towards the latter. lol haha

      7. @wm2017 Yeah right? I have a couple of friends that drive me crazy with their superstitions. They are so into the fortune telling and the Chinese zodiac stuff that they let them dictate so many of what they can and can’t do. One year, one of my friend refused to go vacation with us because the fortune teller told her that year is not suitable for her to travel. Go figure.

  4. don’t know what it takes to turn people’s superstition around. luck is really based on your attitude not something a fortune teller could give to you.

    1. @m0m0 I too dont know. Almost all Chinese business will pick a auspicious day to open but many still close down. I take such beliefs as traditional just to please my grandma.

      1. @foodie Just to please your grandma is right. lol…haha just same as how I please my mom to move my beautiful clock just so I don’t have to hear her bs every time she comes over. hahha lol
