I hate bringing this topic up because Wallace, himself, hates talking about it. However, I feel like I must talk about this big elephant in the room. If you are a Wallace fan, there’s no escaping this news whatsoever. There’s something strange about this recurring marriage news.
Peanuts: So far there is no concrete proof of Wallace’s marital status. Also, Wallace never talks about it as he wants his fans to focus on his acting, dancing and singing, not his personal life. Everything you read here or online is based on hearsay and personal opinions. Thus let’s take all of them with a grain of salt and don’t get too bothered by them. Ultimately, we should focus more on Wallace’s activities, not his rumors.
Every time I do a Wallace monthly news recap for the blog, I realized the more news coverage Wallace gets for his projects/endorsements, the more same old news I see of his rumored wife/kid articles. I wouldn’t be complaining if there are actual new details about those rumors, but they usually stay the same, until this month.
There’s a recent article (see links below) I found on weibo and it cleared up 2 things. Qi Fang is definitely not Wallace’s wife and there is something behind those news aricles popping up so often. The rumor started after the airing of “Too Late to Say I Love You” in which they collaborated in 2011. The rumors were so widely spread that eventually, in the early 2014, Qi Fang finally wrote on her official weibo that they are “just good friends.” Sohu news also backed up her statement by releasing their own article stating that she is already married to a wealthy man. As a result, this rumor quickly disappeared right away.
The rumor started circulating again in mid January 2015 (smack in the middle of My Sunshine’s glory) and it’s not showing any signs of stopping. (I did mention it to Himmy, I was getting tired of all those rumors popping up all the time as well). Take for example Baidu’s main search page for Wallace, how come those articles are the top recent relevant news relating to Wallace? This month alone, Wallace’s top 3 news stories should be his “Sing for Life” album announcement, his directorial debut “Hourglass,” and his birthday fan meet.
Unfortunately, the old rumores still manage to sneak behind either the 2nd or the 3rd place, no matter which search engine (I want to remind everyone that those are the same old articles for the past years).
So the big question is, why is it that the same old rumors still manage to beat out all of Wallace’s recent projects and remain “news”? (Does that make sense?) Also, Wallace did you happen to make somebody mad?
The author of this article (probably from a curious fan) seems to suggest that it’s a work of a professional to ruin Wallace’s image. No average Joe will have that much power. I would have to admit that I have never seen anything like this before.
I’ve been so bothered by this discovery, so the November news wrapup will be posted this weekend instead. This is damaging and I hope it will stop soon, because it’s affecting me as well. What are your thoughts?
