Wallace ended his Beijing concert in August with these words, “Be safe; remember to miss me.” In hindsight, that was probably his way of telling us that we wouldn’t see him for a while, but few people noticed that as everyone was dazzled by his performance! Hence, now you are reading probably the shortest monthly update in the history of this blog.
Wallace’s first visual art show ran from July 1 to September 30 at MoCA Shanghai, China. In the July News Update, we promised you that we would publish an independent post about the exhibition. Here it is! This post compiles translations of the news and feedback regarding the exhibition, in addition to the artist’s messages for you on MoCA Shanghai’s walls.

The Healing Love team finished shooting in China on August 6. They will fly to Vienna around August 10 for a few more scenes before officially wrapping up the 5-month filming work by the end of this month.
According to a feature story about Wallace’s art exhibition at MoCA Shanghai, Wallace’s biggest wish for his life is “Have faith in myself, and there’ll be miracles.” The self-fulfilling prophecy seemed to have worked for Wallace in July. His first visual art show has attracted fans and visitors across China and even from abroad. After serving as a juror for the Magnolia Awards of the Shanghai TV Festival in June, he served in the semi-final round of judging of the 45th International Emmy Awards. The tickets for his August 26 “SING FOR LIFE” concert in Nanjing were sold out fast on June 26. And, good for us, we are one month closer to the airing of Memories of Love.
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.
