Tik Tok held its first press conference this past 17th of April at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Beijing, just days after all three leads attended the BIFF. Hence, we finally got our first official look at Wallace’s character as well as the released poster and trailer.
“Want to find the bomb? Do as I say! You think you can beat me? The game has only just begun.”
In the movie, Wallace’s character is a strategist white-collar worker who is highly intelligent and seem to have a connection with the mysterious man wearing the mask. Perhaps it’s his brother or he has multiple personalities? Lee Jung Jae plays a tough policeman who never back down when faced with danger and difficulties. His character seems to have some kind of beef with Wallace’s character. The leading lady, played by Lang Yueting, is a psychiatric who’s a softy at heart.
Time: April 17, 2016
Location: Grand Hyatt Hotel in Beijing, China
Attendants: Wallace Chung, Lee Jung Jae, Lang Yueting, Director Li Jun
Although this is a collaboration between China and South Korea, director Li stated that the movie is geared toward the Chinese audiences. He said it’s more of a Chinese style suspense thriller movie. The audiences will have to be on alert as they will have to use their brain while watching the movie.
During the press, LJJ also shared his difficulty with learning Chinese. Wallace talked about homesickness during filming in South Korea. He said he would often eat very good Korean food but being there too long made him miss his homeland food. Wallace couldn’t say much about his character since he didn’t want to ruin the suspense.
