Youth and Early Life

In interviews, he stated that he was a popular high school student who was no stranger to female attention, even as an adolescent. Few details about his childhood have been made public at this time.

This minor role earned him unanticipated recognition and led to a leading role in the 2017 web series ‘A Love So Beautiful’, in which he portrays the aloof romantic lead and genius-next-door Jiang Chen, opposite Shen Yue’s Chen Xiaoxi. The popularity of Hu and Shen’s pairing sparked rumors of a real-life romance, which neither actor has confirmed.
The 3rd China Pan-Entertainment Award Ceremony recognized the show as a ‘Top 10 Web Series’ and, during its run on Tencent Video, it garnered over 3.5 billion views, making both of its performers household names. ‘It’s a Dream’, the finale theme song for this series, was performed by Hu.

Hu was also approached to portray Hua Wuque in ‘Handsome Siblings’ (2018), an upcoming period drama based on Gu Long’s 1966 wuxia novel ‘Juedai Shuangjiao’ about twin brothers who are separated at birth and pitted against one another. Hu has stated in interviews that he is hesitant to transition from contemporary melodramas to period dramas.
Hu is also rumored to appear as Wu Bai in the 2018 drama ‘Go Go Squid!’ Details regarding this function are scant. In addition, his agency’s Weibo posts mention the upcoming release of two untitled modern dramas starring Hu later this year.

Hu’s Personal Life
Although there have been rumors about the relationship between Hu and his co-star Shen, neither actor has confirmed the allegations. In a recent interview, Hu referred to his co-star as “plain” and speculated that she was cast so that admirers who were not “pretty” themselves could relate to her.
In June 2018, Hu was embroiled in a sex scandal involving internet personality Bei Ye Bei. He was purportedly captured on camera entering a hotel room with his assistant, where he allegedly committed adultery with his girlfriend.
Bei states that he deleted her from his contacts as soon as the video was disseminated; in response, she released audio recordings of him in bed with her shortly thereafter.
