Huang Wenyong clarifies on sudden weight loss
The public grew concerned about local veteran actor, Huang Wenyong's health condition when he appeared thin and haggard onstage at the 30th Drama Anniversary Show on Sunday.
Wenyong clarified over a phone interview last morning that he did not have any major health problems currently.
He suffered from stomach flu while filming for upcoming Ch8 drama, It's a Wonderful Life in September. Wenyong had visited both Western and Chinese doctors, but could not recover his health completely due to hectic work schedules and irregular meal times.
The actor had fever subsequently, his body temperature rising to 39 degrees Celsius almost every night, but it would return to normal the next morning.
Wenyong had lost an estimated of seven kilos after falling sick consecutively.
Admitting that he had lost too much weight, Wenyong commented, "Even my daughter thinks that I look like her grandfather now."
