Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) may be as ambitious as his on-screen counterpart in The Ultimate Addiction <點金勝手>, but instead of ruthlessness, the 33-year-old chooses to rely on hard work and perseverance to realize his long-life dreams.
Although he can relate to Cheuk Yuk’s financial ambitions, Bosco feels that his character’s arrogance would not carry him far in life, reports a Jayne Stars article.
“As actors, we must be somewhat confident, but we cannot be selfish or arrogant or we would not have any friends.”
Despite a successful entertainment career and a steady income stream, Bosco continues to pursue additional money-making opportunities with the hopes of achieving long-term financial security.
Not only does he invest in real estate, in recent years he also became the owner of several restaurants. When it comes to his businesses, Bosco always goes above and beyond to ensure quality product and service, all because he is living his passion.
Speaking about his oyster bar recently, the hands-on boss shared that opening a restaurant has been his childhood dream, and that he is determined to make sure it lives up to his customers’ expectations.
Even though Bosco’s face lights up whenever he speaks about his oyster business, a part of his heart still lingers for a long-term acting career. He cites Eric Tsang (曾志偉) and good friend Michael Miu (苗僑偉) as his idols, and hopes to one day achieve a successful career in film.
These days, Bosco has been busy strengthening his presence in China. With a large, loyal fan base in the north, he is allegedly worth a higher fee than popular colleague Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎).
Even though the Mainland job offers can easily allow him a very comfortable lifestyle, Bosco insists on choosing projects for their potential and not for the paycheck.
“For [non-TVB] offers, I will always read the script first. If I don’t like it, I won’t take the job no matter the price.” He added that he has no plans to pursue the Mainland market full time, preferring to grow his career in his native Hong Kong.
