Wallace recently wrapped up filming for “Tik Tok.” Fans spotted him at the airport and suspected he had gone home to rest since he will be shooting for “Bounty Hunters” soon (per weibo). As it turned out, Wallace had other obligations planned. He scored another endorsement deal and was seen doing tthe photo-shoot and commercial for the brand (more info on the next post) and he had also made a surprise appearance at the King of Pop reality show.
For those who are not familiar with King of Pop, it is a singing competition reality show trying to search for the next boy band in China. FNC Entertainment, known for managing k-pop groups such as FT Island & CN Blue, decided to collaborate with IQiyi and Baidu for the reality show. According to Kpopstarz:
“Twenty contestants were selected through auditions all over China. The competition is said to include training missions as they narrow down the members of their new idol group. The contestants will be narrowed down to seven members and the group is slated to debut at the end of the year after receiving training from FNC’s Global Training Center in China.”
Wallace probably made this special appearance as a favor from IQIYI as it is one of the investors for Wallace’s other reality show I Go To School. So far, I Go to School has gotten over 500 million hits. Below are fan-captured videos. Wallace did his filming portion on the 24th of September and it’s not clear when it will be aired, but King of Pop airs every Saturday on iQIYI at 9:15pm (KST). The show’s first episode was on August 22 and will consist of 12 episodes in total.
Wallace sang A Simple Man. I really like this version.
His smile gets me every time! 🙂
