It was exactly a year ago, in September 2016, when I made my first encounter with Wallace Chung’s photo essay book entitled 浮光掠影 “In the Shadow of Love.” This unforgettable encounter was made possible thanks to my two angelic LM friends K and T from Beijing when I visited them for the 924 Beijing Concert. For this poor Chinese-illiterate foreigner, K got an extremely rare copy of the photo book and T translated what Wallace wrote in there into English. I must have done something really good in my previous life, to enjoy this love and friendship now!
I opened the cover carefully, ran through the pages one after another, and slowly began to understand what T had told me before, “You should see his photos along with the titles and captions. Together, they make beautiful sense!” Even to my Chinese-blind eyes, the photos started to tell stories already. I burst into laughter when I saw the photo with the title “犇”. This Chinese character, formed of three 牛s (‘cows’), means ‘to run’; ironically, inside the photo were three cows, not running but peacefully crouching on the prairie! Haha, what a sense of humor!

The month of August has come and go with no news regarding any of the air dates for Wallace’s two previously wrapped up dramas (Memories of Love and Liang Sheng). Hence, August was a quiet month for Wallace. Luckily, he decided to continue his “Sing For Life” concert tour and we got lots of photos to share.
Wallace held his concert this time in Nanjing, China on the 26th of this month. His last concert was almost a year ago in Beijing on 9th September, 2016. Continue reading AUGUST 2017 NEWS UPDATE: Nanjing Concert Edition

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.

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.
