Yao Wenlong Went Back To JB After His Mum Suffered A Stroke And Probably Won’t Be Back In Singapore Until 2021
He’s taking this opportunity to spend time with his family.
Mediacorp drama A Quest To Heal could be the last time we see Yao Wenlong on TV for a while. The 49-year-old Malaysian actor has been back in Johor Bahru since filming for the drama, which is now airing on Ch 8 and meWATCH, wrapped in May, and he'll likely be staying there for the rest of the year.
"I’ve been home for about two months now," Wenlong tells 8days.sg from his JB home, adding that he had completed his 14-day quarantine in Malaysia on May 26. While he was working on A Quest To Heal, where he plays the lovesick marketing exec of Xu Bin's restaurant, Wenlong, who would normally commute between Singapore and JB before COVID-19 happened, had stayed at the Furama Riverfront Hotel for two months so that the filming wouldn’t be affected.
