Since his appearance has deteriorated, this handsome man has no longer been sought after.
Until now, Taiwan’s Meteor Garden (China) is still considered one of the most popular versions. The film made F4 famous on screen and “encroached” into music, once possessing millions of fans across Asia. Among them, Chu Hieu Thien is considered the top handsome man in F4, but now he is the most obscure name.
Different from the direction of the other 3 members, Chu Hieu Thien has a completely different direction to become an actor after Meteor Garden. He participated in a number of projects such as Love Whirlwind, So Luu Huong Truyen Ky, Timeless Love Story… but they were not as successful as before. The 7X actor’s “aura” was quite short-lived, and later on there were a series of noisy stories.
During his time of fame, Chu Hieu Thien was rumored to be dating many different big and small female stars, including Ly Bingbing. He was labeled “amorous handsome man”, “addicted to love”, “changing girlfriends like changing clothes”… and that was when his career began to be forgotten. In the 2010s and beyond, Chu Hieu Thien’s appearance began to change, losing his old romantic look.
Chu Hieu Thien expired because of his deteriorating appearance
In 2015, Chu Hieu Thien lived in the same house with actress Han Van Van. At this time, he continuously appeared in the media but only to… “tell” about his personal story. Many things revealed by Chu Hieu Thien shocked the audience, such as the fact that he “quit” with F4 members or experienced poverty and no job for nearly 10 years. Most notably, the actor revealed that he suffered from a strange disease called fibromuscular atrophy, which severely affected his body and mind. He said this is also the reason why he is rarely invited to act in films, but the media believes that complaining and being negative is the main reason why he is “avoided”.
He also revealed that for a year, he had almost no spare money because his business was not successful. “I don’t even have a garage under my name,” Chu Hieu Thien shared. Luckily, besides Chu Hieu Thien, there is also his wife Han Van Van. She once shared that she was not sad that Chu Hieu Thien did not have a job or much money, and also affirmed that she would support him. Chu Hieu Thien revealed that both of their real estate properties are managed and named after Han Van Van.
Chu Hieu Thien is under 50 years old

His beauty is no longer the same as before, he is also not eager to have many film projects, but still struggles to make a living. In addition, the actor has no plans to have children due to his illness and feels happy because his wife is by his side.
