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>.
