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 month of August has come and gone with no news regarding any of the air dates for Wallace’s two previously wrapped up dramas (Memories of Love and Liang Sheng). Hence, August was a quiet month for Wallace. Luckily, he decided to continue his “Sing For Life” concert tour and we got lots of photos to share.
Wallace held his concert this time in Nanjing, China on the 26th of this month. His last concert was almost a year ago in Beijing on 9th September, 2016. Continue reading AUGUST 2017 NEWS UPDATE: Nanjing Concert Edition
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.
A while ago, I remember reading about Netflix trying to get into China’s market. Critics were saying it might be a tough market to get into considering that China already has many online offerings (most of which are free). However, what Netflix offer is something different, which is targeting the international audiences who need English subtitles. Over the years, I have noticed an increase in Asian dramas on Netflix and without realizing, Wallace’s last three big projects have managed to be brought by Netflix.
Since I am a fan of Yichen and Mosheng’s love story, Haha recently informed me that My Sunshine is now on Netflix. So I figure it would be a good idea to do a quick features on all of Wallace’s projects currently on Netflix. I strongly recommend any fan who has an account there to support Wallace, so that we can get more projects.
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.
