The Healing Love team finished shooting in China on August 6. They will fly to Vienna around August 10 for a few more scenes before officially wrapping up the 5-month filming work by the end of this month.
According to a feature story about Wallace’s art exhibition at MoCA Shanghai, Wallace’s biggest wish for his life is “Have faith in myself, and there’ll be miracles.” The self-fulfilling prophecy seemed to have worked for Wallace in July. His first visual art show has attracted fans and visitors across China and even from abroad. After serving as a juror for the Magnolia Awards of the Shanghai TV Festival in June, he served in the semi-final round of judging of the 45th International Emmy Awards. The tickets for his August 26 “SING FOR LIFE” concert in Nanjing were sold out fast on June 26. And, good for us, we are one month closer to the airing of Memories of Love.
A while ago, I remember reading about Netflix trying to get into China’s market. Critics were saying it might be a tough market to get into considering that China already has many online offerings (most of which are free). However, what Netflix offer is something different, which is targeting the international audiences who need English subtitles. Over the years, I have noticed an increase in Asian dramas on Netflix and without realizing, Wallace’s last three big projects have managed to be brought by Netflix.
Since I am a fan of Yichen and Mosheng’s love story, Haha recently informed me that My Sunshine is now on Netflix. So I figure it would be a good idea to do a quick features on all of Wallace’s projects currently on Netflix. I strongly recommend any fan who has an account there to support Wallace, so that we can get more projects.
If you haven’t been following up with Wallace’s this month, well you are in for a treat. Continue reading JUNE 2017 NEWS UPDATE
Back in 2012, Wallace did a drama called The Magic Blade and it was probably his big break leading a somewhat big budget production for the first time. The drama went on to have decent ratings, but what left a lasting impression was that epic hairstyle and, on a serious note, the original soundtrack Wallace sang for the drama.
May 2017 was a month of what mainland Wallace Chung fans in China call “drama famine.” No new drama was aired. No new film was realeased. Not even a variety TV show featuring Wallace came around. Fortunately, the famine will be over soon. Better yet, Wallace sent a Mother’s Day message on behalf of Ecovacs, busied himself with the filming of Healing Love, and posted the longest weibo EVER for his longtime assistant.
Do you want some peace of mind? Wallace feels the same way too, which is why he sang a song about it. As always, ‘Thank you’ to Haha for providing the translations. Feel free to visit Haha’s blog for other great songs. Continue reading [Eng+Pinyin] Peace of Mind 心安 – Wallace Chung 钟汉良
