May 2017 was a month of what mainland Wallace Chung fans in China call “drama famine.” No new drama was aired. No new film was realeased. Not even a variety TV show featuring Wallace came around. Fortunately, the famine will be over soon. Better yet, Wallace sent a Mother’s Day message on behalf of Ecovacs, busied himself with the filming of Healing Love, and posted the longest weibo EVER for his longtime assistant.
CrystalT, Ironfingers, and anom,
Thank you for your patience. Here are the interview summaries you requested. I am sorry that one of the three videos was deleted twice when I worked on this post. It was the interview Wallace and Angelababy did in August, 2016 during General and I‘s filming days. I searched everywhere and found snippets of the interview in news articles and videos. I put that summary in the end. If you found the source again, please let me know.
The keywords of this month were unequivocally “General and I.” Wallace’s engrossing performance in this romantic ancient costume drama once again made him one of the most popular entertainers of the month on social media. He topped the Entertainer New Media Index in the Television Actors category by Vlinkage, an entertainment marketing service provider, on 13 days in January, and was among the top three on 23 days.
June was a month of unalloyed bliss for the Wallace Chung fans all over the world. If you got a little depressed earlier this year because you didn’t get to see Wallace in the news as often as you desired, you wish was granted in the month of “Zhong”—doesn’t Wallace’s last name in Mandarin Chinese sound a lot like “June”? Wallace won his first best male actor award at the Shanghai International Film Festival, graced the premieres and press conferences for his latest works, and turned dozens of road shows of “Three” into jovial fan meets. Plus, he caught up with the latest technology adored by China’s entertainment world, “live stream,” to connect with his beloved fans.
This is Part 5 of the 6-part translation of Wallace’s first party with the Wallace Chung W Liang Family, his official fan club in China. In this post, you will read some “love confessions” from Wallace’s elder fans.
