You probably know Wang Weiliang as Lobang from the hit Ah Boys To Men franchise, but before he shot to stardom in Jack Neo movies, the 33-year-old was a getai singer.
The actor talked about his pre-Ah Boys days in this week’s episode of Quan Yifeng’s hit talk show Hear U Out, which, by the way, is back for a second season. And for the first time in the show’s history, there were two guests: Weiliang and his ABTM sergeant Tosh Zhang.
But back to Weiliang’s story.
When Yifeng asked Weiliang why he started working so early in life, the latter said sheepishly: “I didn’t want to study, but my mother told me that she’d only give me [pocket money] if I did. So I said, ‘Forget it, I’ll earn my own money’.”
