JULY 2017 NEWS UPDATE

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.

JUNE 2016 NEWS UPDATE

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.
