Wu Chun Reveals Real Reasons for Leaving Fahrenheit
Though now a well-established actor, many fans still remember that Bruneian actor Wu Chun (吳尊) was once part of the Taiwanese boy band Fahrenheit (飛輪海), which debuted in 2005 under HIM International. Wu Chun released four albums with Fahrenheit before he announced his official leave from the boy band in June 2011.
Wu Chun’s representative announced that his reasons for leaving were because he no longer aspired to be a singer and hoped to focus on his acting career. He also stated that he wanted to spend more time with his family. At the time, it was still not known that he was married to his longtime girlfriend, Lin Li Ying (林麗瑩).
Wu Chun’s departure from the band led to various speculations about his reasons for leaving. Some rumors claimed that he left due to discord with the members, while some said he left due to contract disputes.
However, in a recent talk show hosted by his former band mate Calvin Chen (辰亦儒), Wu Chun finally revealed his true reasons for leaving Fahrenheit. He admitted, “It was because I had my daughter Nei Nei, so it was impossible for me to continue activities with [the band].” He clarified that he and his Fahrenheit brothers are still close and he would love to work with them again in the future.
Wu Chun could not contain his love and enthusiasm for his daughter. On the show, he said Nei Nei was a joy to take care of, but although she may sometimes be a bit stubborn, her persistent personality is quite endearing. “She would want to get a piece of candy on top of a cupboard, but she couldn’t reach it. She also wouldn’t let me help her. But it would be okay if I picked her up so she could reach it herself.”
