GUANGZHOU: Taiwan singer-actor Wu Chun's manager Lu Shu Juan has denied recent news reports that Wu will be leaving Taiwan boy band Fahrenheit to focus on a solo career, reported Chinese media.

"There is no such thing. Wu Chun did not announce that he is going solo during a meet-the-fans session. "He just told a reporter during an interview that his main focus for this year will be film when asked about the expiry of his music contract," explained Lu on Tuesday.

"People just like to use strong words to describe things." said Wu’s manager, who reiterated that "Wu did not announce he was going solo".

31-year-old Wu's former record label H.I.M International has confirmed that Wu’s contracts with the company had indeed expired, but said the Brunei-born singer, along with band mates Calvin Chen, Jiro Wang and Aaron Yan, will still remain together as Fahrenheit.

"Although, Wu Chun's management contract and album contract have not been settled upon, we are still taking care of his appearances and spokesperson engagements," said a H.I.M representative on Tuesday.

"Fahrenheit will not dissolve. While all four members have their own plans this year, the company will still do its best to arrange for the four of them to perform on stage together."

Wu previously worked as a model and managed a chain of gyms in Brunei before joining Fahrenheit in 2005.

He appeared with action star Donnie Yen in the martial arts film "14 Blades" last year and will star opposite Barbie Hsu in director Gao Xiaosong’s upcoming film "My Kingdom".

He will also play Rainie Yang's love interest in the idol drama "Sunshine Angel" which is slated to debut later this year.
