People are fond of saying that “everyone makes mistakes“. But what they don’t usually mention is that sometimes, some mistakes can cost you. And making up for it won’t be easy.
For Hong Kong singer-actor Ambrose Hui (许绍洋) this was especially true. Although his career had peaked at one point, after a misunderstanding, his reputation fell to shreds. In fact, he was recently spotted performing at a mall, with a rather lukewarm reaction.
Ambrose had been at the top of his career in 2001 and 2003. At the time, Ambrose was extremely popular thanks to his performance in the dramas “Lavender (薰衣草)” and “At the Dolphin Bay (海豚湾恋人)”. However, it all fell apart in 2010. He had apparently gotten into a fight with someone at a nightclub and severely injured them. The artist was later detained for questioning.
Unfortunately, although he was later deemed innocent, it had damaged his reputation and inadvertently, his career. At the time, Ambrose had debuted in Taiwan but after the fiasco, he moved to China to continue growing his career. Ambrose initially focused on theatre performances, but in recent years, it was discovered that he was focused on doing commercials and live selling instead.
A few days ago, Ambrose was spotted on stage at a mall. He was apparently performing songs while his MV played in the background. However, netizens noted he really hadn’t drawn a crowd. Some felt pity for Ambrose, remembering him from back in the day. But, other netizens claimed he is being paid handsomely. In fact, some alleged he was paid about 200,000 yuan (~RM130,000) for his work.
Well, if it’s true, Ambrose may still be doing well for himself, despite his reputation having taken a heavy hit. He may not be as famous as before, but he seems to be faring well!
