ALTHOUGH he may be rich and famous, Mandopop heartthrob Wang Lee Hom does not simply splurge.

He was “caught red-handed” wearing a pair of holey socks, China Press reported.

His good friend, Taiwanese pop star David Tao revealed in a recent episode of the third season of Chinese talk show Roast that Wang was a thrifty person.

“If you go through Wang’s wardrobe, you will find many pairs of socks with holes in them,” Tao said.

The duo were at the talk show when Tao revealed Wang’s frugal lifestyle and pointed out that although Wang earned a lot of money, he was very prudent especially in his choice of clothes.

The audience then asked Wang to remove his shoes to verify Tao’s allegation.

Although the 42-year-old denied it, he was indeed wearing socks with worn-out heels when he took off one of his shoes.

The very embarrassed Wang then playfully chucked his shoe at Tao. Tao replied that it had a “fishy” smell which drew laughter from the audience.
