TAIPEI (The China Post) — The death of 36-year-old Taiwanese singer Alien Huang (黃鴻升), who passed away at his residence after falling in his bathroom on Wednesday, has shocked the Chinese entertainment industry in Asia.

The singer hosted a popular variety entertainment show, “100% Entertainment”《娛樂百分百》with friend Show Lo (羅志祥) for 10 years (2005-2015). 

Upon hearing the sad news, Lo, who said that he is as close to him as a brother, wrote “Why is this happening…” on an Instagram story.

Chinese-language media remarked, however, that their relationship deteriorated in 2015 when Huang privately criticized a girl who liked Lo for being “superficial.” 

After Huang’s comments surfaced online, Huang reportedly resigned from his co-hosting position and the two friends went separate ways.

Both have been in the entertainment industry for many years, but they were seldom seen together in front of the screen after Huang left the show.

In the wake of Lo’s affair sex scandals earlier this year, Huang was asked if he had contacted Lo in private in June.

He responded that he couldn’t get in touch with Luo because each of them had changed their phone numbers many times and that he had no way of contacting him.
