Hu Ge Receives Star-studded Farewell as He Takes Sabbatical to Study Abroad for Two Years

Goodbye, even if just for now, feels doubly bittersweet this past weekend as C-actor Hu Ge was beautifully sent off at the China Drama Awards by his friends and costars. Hu Ge has announced that he will be taking an official sabbatical to study overseas, with his attendance at the awards his final entertainment event before setting off. Hu Ge’s sabbatical will be between 1 to 2 years long during which he will not be acting and won’t have any new acting projects coming up. I’m not sure if he’ll do CFs or brand appearances to maintain his popularity but I’m thrilled for him to embark on this new experience since he started acting in 2002 when he was just 20 years old.
