Hong Kong actor Ng Man-Tat (吳孟達) passed away on 27th February this year. While many mourned his passing as it was a blow to the entertainment sector, it also unintentionally dragged his family into the spotlight.
With his father gone, many are now wondering about the future of Ng’s only son, Weilun (吴韦仑). Will Weilun follow in his father’s footsteps and pick up his mantle? Or will he choose another path instead?
There have been rumours that Weilun was considering joining the entertainment scene like his father. The 19-year-old once followed his father to work. While on set, he was supposedly photographed by an agency and asked to sign on as an artist. However, Weilun has yet to make his debut as an entertainer.
Weilun was born in Malaysia and has lived most of his life here. However, during his father’s funeral, he followed his family back to China. After the funeral, it was reported that Weilun hadn’t decided if he would return to Malaysia or not. With the way things are going, staying longer in China might be beneficial for him.
Weilun has already captured the hearts of many in China. His height and good looks have boosted the popularity of the Malaysian teen with many netizens openly declaring their love for him online. Several accounts on Weibo have names like “Wu Weilun’s girlfriend” and “Wu Weilun’s wife”. Some have even stated they are willing to wait for him and are looking forward to his career developing in China.
While Weilun’s entry into the entertainment scene has been made easier with his father’s reputation, it is ultimately for him to decide. Some believe he would do well there though.
For now, the only person who can decide his future is Weilun himself. It’s probably nice to know he has the support of netizens, even before he’s made a debut in the entertainment world.
