Singapore's favourite fictional army boys are back in camp starting this week to shoot the third instalment of the popular national service movie series, Ah Boys To Men.

A recruit was spotted among the original Ah Boys at a press conference yesterday for Ah Boys To Men 3: Frogmen, held at the Naval Diving Unit in Sembawang. He is 27-year-old Hong Kong actor Wesley Wong, whose parents are veteran stars Melvin Wong and Angie Chiu Nga Chi.

He says candidly: "Some people get to know me because of my parents, but through this movie, I hope audiences will get to know more about Wesley the actor.

"In the past, I didn't like to be known as the second-generation of famous celebrity parents. But I thought about it and they are my parents and I'm proud to be their son."
