What is the real you like once the camera turns off?
The real me is really laid back and easy-going – I really enjoy moments where I get to just sit around and do nothing. [Laughs]

Is your social media personality different from your real-life one?
I think it’s hard to really see what someone is like through social media, but I am myself when I post videos on Instagram.

What is one personality trait most people don’t know about you?
If you don’t know me as a friend, you wouldn’t know that I’m actually very sensitive; I’ve got a huge soft side.

Just for kicks, what are two things you’re able to do at once?
I’ve actually watched two movies at once, one on my laptop and another on my phone, and I understood both storylines at the end.

When was the last time you did something naughty with a friend?
Well, my best friend lives in Gold Coast, and I usually do everything with him, so the naughtiest thing we have done is to stay up past midnight to FaceTime each other.

HUGO’s collection is about showing one’s personality, what does the piece you’re wearing say about you?
The piece I’m wearing shows that I’ve got a really outgoing side. I like wearing something a little different; I think it keeps fashion more interesting.

What piece from HUGO do you think is as multi-talented as you?
Oh, didn’t see myself as being multi-talented, but I love the HUGO sweatpants. I feel like you can really wear them anywhere – it’s so versatile.

What is the real you like once the camera turns off?
I am a fun, happy, go-with-the-flow kind of guy just trying to enjoy every day on this Earth.

Is your social media personality different from your real-life one?
In more recent times, I have been trying to connect my Instagram and my personality closer. There was one point where I just wanted to look cool on Instagram.

What is one personality trait most people don’t know about you?
I am very unorganised but in an organised way, which means that I will never write things down but will somehow still always remember them.

Just for kicks, what are two things you’re able to do at once?
I can hold a conversation with two people about two different things at once.

When was the last time you did something naughty with a friend?
The last naughty thing I did with a friend would be playing pranks on other friends, such as wrapping my friend to the couch when he was asleep!

HUGO’s collection is about showing one’s personality, so what does the piece you’re wearing say about you?
This piece shows the casual but suave and sophisticated side of me, and red has always been a sign of good fortune for the Chinese, so that’s also a plus!

What piece from HUGO do you think is as multi-talented as you? I
I think this piece I am wearing now is very multi-talented because it shows many different styles all sewn into one piece. The naughty and nice, the cool and the sophisticated.
