Not wanting to jeopardize his rising career, Ricco would keep a low profile when asked about his girlfriend.
Ricco Ng (吳偉豪), who rose in popularity after starring in Come Home Love: Lo and Behold <愛‧回家之開心速遞> is now more careful about his dating relationship, abiding by instructions from TVB to keep a low profile about his romantic life.
Accidentally Divulges Romance
A graduate from the 2015 artiste training class, Ricco won viewers’ hearts with his positive image and well-received role as Chu Ling Ling in the long-running sitcom, and was well-poised to rise up the ranks at TVB. Despite the pandemic, the 22-year-old received many advertising endorsements due to his healthy image.
After posting about his staycation at a hotel in October, Ricco accidentally revealed the identity of his girlfriend Charlotte when netizens linked one clue with another and uncovered traces of their relationship on social media. Charlotte, who is 10 years older than Ricco, also came under the spotlight when she was discovered to have heavily edited her social entries to create a perfect appearance. Since then, Ricco had been brisk in his replies, and avoided sharing more details about his girlfriend’s background.
Keen to Move Forward
Earlier, Charlotte was spotted driving into TVB Studios frequently to fetch her boyfriend Ricco from work. There were rumors that Ricco was called out by his manager to keep a low profile about his relationship, while TVB also began prohibiting non-employees and official guests from entering its premises on grounds of security.
A source revealed, “This is Ricco’s first brush with trouble since entering the industry. He had been well-positioned to rise up the career ladder due to his healthy image, and the company was also keen to give him more chances, making arrangements for him to appear in other headline dramas besides Come Home Love. After his relationship became the talk of the town, TVB management immediately told Ricco to keep a low profile when handling his relationship matters and wait for things to blow over….”
Understanding the severity of the situation, Ricco was quick to follow management orders accordingly to avoid jeopardizing his rising career. He updated in a reflective Instagram post, “Learn from the past, live in the present, work towards the future.”
