It’s the end of September and here is your Wallace’s news update. Since there was not much happenings, I’ve included some rumors and crazy fans artworks.
It’s a Wrap For “Tik Tok”
The biggest news happening in the movie field for Wallace is your first look at Wallace’s image for “Tik Tok.” The production team were strict when it comes to leaked photos of Wallace in character. It wasn’t until the end of filming when crew members were able to take photos with Wallace that the leaked photos were made public. Since the first leaked photo were blurry, fans quickly sketched out many awesome images of Wallace in costume. What do you fans think?
Leading man, Lee Jun Jae, as well as some crew members posted some photos announcing the end of filming for the movie. The Busan International Film Festival will be coming this October, Lee Jung Jae is said to be participating. Wallace is back in China and doesn’t seem like he’ll be attending since filming for “Bounty Hunters” will start soon and he’ll be filming at a couple overseas locations. (Who Knows, maybe he’ll surprise us ?)
In Korea, you know you are a big star if you get fan support like this. Wallace is indeed deeply loved by the fans. I believe this is a first for me to see any foreign artist getting support like this while shooting in Korean.
Ecovacs Robotics Brand
Wallace was recently announced as the official spokesperson for the robotic home service brand Ecovacs. According to Ecovacs’ website, they are among the top 5 in-home robotics brand in the world and #1 in China with over 500 stores in China alone. The latest model took more than a year’since planning. Deebot D83 is the version Wallace is seen modeling below. It is a robotic vacuum cleaner that transitions between hard wood and carpeted floor cleaning. One unique feature is the timer. Once the robot is done with the cleaning it will go back to its cradle and charges itself. The reason for selecting Wallace as a representative was due to his versatility as well as his wholesome public image. Ecovacs’ chairman Qian Dong Qi states, “He is a dancer, actor, singer, photographer, and low-key but positive guy with a bright personality.” He felt that Wallace and the Ecovacs’ robotic complemented each other very well.
As for Wallace, his reasons for accepting the collaboration was due to the company’s commitment to being socially responsible through their products. (Credit: http://article.pchome.net/content-1843475.html?via=touch; http://news.hexun.com/2015-09-24/179446959.html)
Since everybody has a smart phone nowadays, mobile shopping is going to be big. Wallace has joined hand promoting this convenient way of mobile shopping. (No articles on this, so I’ve got nothing else to add).
Promotions for My Sunshine
Wallace did a short interview promoting My Sunshine right after the Seoul Int’l Drama Awards. The drama was aired back in May on Korean station MBC, so it should have ended already. I find him really charming here.
I Go To School new MV
According to our I Go to School expert Himmy, here’s the latest updated MV. Sadly Wallace’s voice is still not a part of the song.
Wallace used to promote Law?
At the beginning of September, students at a law university were seen using a cut out board of Wallace’s He Yichen as a way to convince their fellow students to choose their major. (LOL)
These is some of the unconfirmed news that’s flooding on weibo. I found all those headlines interesting, since, with or without Wallace, I’ll still be checking them out anyway.
Entertainment news on Sina has reported that Wallace along with C-actress Ni Ni and Han Xue are set to star together in another novel to movie/drama adaptation. The project is scheduled to start filming next year in June. Since Peanuts reads a lot, maybe she can find out more about this novel.
