The 10th Seoul International Drama Awards wrapped up last night on September 10, 2015 (South Korea Time). It was held at the Sangam Culture Plaza with many top local K-stars as well as some international stars. Representing Taiwan were Bolin Chen, Ariel Lin, and Aaron Yan, while Hans Zhang and our very own Wallace Chung represented China. The hosts for the show was led by the charismatic Lee Dong Wook and K-actress Kim Jung Eun. Like many award shows, it is pretty boring. There’s really no merit to this award show and one should not take it too seriously as well. It is more of just bringing in big names to help celebrate the year end TV drama.
Wallace took home the Asian Star Grand Prize Award alongside Ariel Lin, Chen BoLin, and Joe Odagiri. His speech was brief. He greeted the audience in Korean (it’s the effort that matters) and the rest was in English ( no translation necessary). You can watch the acceptance speech below:
Himmy: I respect Wallace for making the effort to say something in Korean. Ariel can speak a bit of Korean so she does not count. Bolin did say thank you in Korean but Wallace spoke the most 😛 Wallace looks very handsome in his suit, even all those oppa can’t beat him 😛
Peanuts: Our darling Wallace walked on the wrong side of the stage, right in front of the presenters after his name was announced. He must be too ecstatic and nervous to not know what he was doing as if he were dreaming lol. Or he wanted to make sure the Koreans know who is Wallace Chung since they announced the four winners one after another in quick succession.
Also, the announcer kind of pronounced Wallace’s name incorrectly because I heard Han Leung Jong when it should be Hon Leung Chung in Cantonese or Han Liang Zhong in Mandarin. Being Korean, can’t fault them too much but why can’t she just call him Wallace Chung like she called Bolin Chen?
When Wallace realised the camera was on him, he quickly smiled and clapped 😛
During the show, Wallace was seated next to Lee Min Ho, who walked away with 2 awards for the night. Mr. Lee has already started shooting “Bounty Hunters,” which explains the toned body (he tends to go up and down). Wallace will join as soon as he wraps up “Tik Tok” and Tang Yan will join at the end of September as soon as she wraps up Journey to the West 3.
Wallace looked so happy and confident while walking the red carpet. He even shook hands with a few lucky fans.
Some fans even gave him flowers and gifts. This shows Wallace is also very popular in South Korea or he has plenty of rich fans who flew from China.
I crack up watching this video. If anybody knows what Wallace is trying to say in Korean, please enlighten us!
Himmy found a BTS video for you to enjoy:
Yea!!! We also got a Weibo update from the man himself:
Before the event Wallace updated his weibo with the following picture. He wrote down the character “天,” which could mean many significant thing, but in this case, I believe he meant “Day” implying that today is the day of the Award show.
Peanuts: I think it can also be interpreted as “OMG”, which could mean he can’t believe that he is going to get an international award today. He must be very happy because he did not stop smiling for the whole night. Congrats Wallace Chung, we are proud of you and look forward to your receiving more accolades domestically as well as overseas.
Still haven’t had enough? Let’s be honest that he’s super gorgeous today!!! If you want to stare at him a little longer, hop onto the link below. It’s the Facebook page. I dumped all images I saved of Wallace, because if I leave them on my computer, it will slow down my programs & I won’t be able to photoshop any more banners for this blog.
