A year has come and gone. This Wallace Chung’s fangirling blog is celebrating our 1st anniversary. Due to the popularity of My Sunshine and Wallace’s flourishing international movie career, we decided to set up an English blog to enable international fans who can’t understand Chinese and Vietnamese to get to know him and his work better.
Thank you for all your support. We wish to know you better so please take some time to take part in the poll below. We hope that you’ll continue to support Wallace Chung as well as the blog for many years to come. We also want to thank the contributors to the blog in particular Chewywon and Himmy who have worked hard. We may not update often but it is the quality that counts 😛 Let’s Grow Old Together with Wallace 🙂
Chewywon: Wow! Time sure flies by fast because we didn’t realize it had been a year. It must mean it was time well spent. Next time, we’ll be on time. So, a big “Thank You” to all the visitors and especially all the commentators (you know who you are 😉 ). Peanuts and Himmy, let’s continue to make another good year!!! You two are awesome!!!
How popular is Wallace outside of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong where most of the Chinese reside? He is rather popular with the Chinese who live in western countries like USA, Canada, Australia and Europe. It is evident that Wallace is also very popular in Asia mainly in Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and South Korea. Any fans from Thailand, Japan, India, Middle East, Russia or other countries who are not from a Chinese background?
Outside of the Chinese speaking world, I believe Wallace has the most fans in Vietnam. They are rather devoted as some even traveled to China for his concert. The Vietnamese will follow weibo and report any of Wallace’s news in their own language instantaneously. They have many blogs and forums such as kites and facebook pages on him. Unfortunately Vietnamese is not an international language which most people can understand. But many of the Vietnamese speaking fans who are living overseas are also conversant in English.
Malaysia and Singapore have many overseas born Chinese so needless to say, Wallace is rather popular there. If you don’t know by now, our Himmy comes from Malaysia. Although the Chinese in Indonesia is in the minority, our top commentator iin suci mulyani comes from there and Yui has a blog in the Indonesian language which occasionally mentions Wallace. Wallace is also getting increasingly popular in South Korea because some of his drama like My Sunshine were broadcast there and his cooperation with some top Korean artists like Lee Jung Jae and Lee Min Ho helped attract local fans.
Besides Our Sunshine, there are other overseas websites like Koala’s Playground and Jaynestar which report news of Wallace in English. There is also the spcnet’s forum where some of Wallace’s English speaking fans hang out. Some frequent visitors of this blog are Xiao Wa’s loyal overseas fans from the Chinese Huaren US forum.
Due to the success of My Sunshine, Wallace’s fame has even spread all the way to the French speaking world! A big thanks to Bong who had translated for us what the French speaking people thought of Wallace.
Some French girls are in love with Wallace Chung after watching My Sunshine. Hahahaha, one even wrote “32 episodes is too short!” “Just one glance and he can make us feel a thousand things all at once.” “Wallace Chung gave an excellent performance.”
A fan of Yi Chen.
She finished the drama because of Wallace’s Yi Chen.
“Wallace Chung is not very handsome, but what a great actor he is.”
“I don’t find him (Wallace) to be especially handsome but he has this charm…..He looks at me, I look at him…….He looks at me, I melt.”
If we have not mentioned you or your country, it is because you’ve been rather quiet on the blog. Hence, do use this opportunity to introduce yourself as well as your country. You can also share with us how you’ve come to know about Wallace or why you like him. If you are too shy to drop us a message, you can participate in the poll below so that we will be able to know where Wallace’s fans are from.
