Sorry, mom,
I want to fire you.

I say I will go home after I am finished with all this work.

only when I feel unwell
will I think of my mom: She is probably fine, right?

I am busy day after day.
Only when I stop working will I think:
For life
you must have toiled a lot too, right?

Dear mom,
love and cherish yourself.

Now you have the Ecovacs robots to help you.
All these years, you have travailed a lot
May the mothers all over the world have a happy Mother’s Day.

Wallace Chung May 27 Weibo Update

#钟汉良# Wallace Chung May 27 Weibo Update (Longest Weibo Ever!)

Just finished filming [for the day]. Xiao Zhen [Little Zhen. “Little” is used before someone’s first name to show affection.] handed me the script for tomorrow’s filming. I recalled that the day before yesterday we finished work around dinner time. Someone said that we had not had a dinner party for a long time, so we decided instantly to go have dinner together. Xiao Zhen still kept herself busy while everyone else was joking around and stuffing their faces. They were hungry so they ate to their hearts’ content, which explains what the word “satisfied” means. Xiao Zhen suddenly spoke of what happened when she first met with me. She said, “That day was May 25, 2007!” The other people screamed, “Wasn’t that today ten years ago?” Everyone was happily stunned! Xiao Zhen said, “I went to a beauty salon near Jing’an Temple to meet you [for the interview to be your assistant]. You were getting a haircut there. You were wearing a white T-shirt, dark-colored jeans, and a pair of very [the original word was “hin” instead of “hen” because Xiao Zhen said that word with a funny accent, and Wallace naughtily kept that in his original weibo] white sneakers. Later you took me to work. In the car, you turned to me and asked what my name was, and after thinking for a long time you said you would call me Xiao Zhen.” When Xiao Zhen talked about those things, I immediately felt I went back to those days, all the memories replayed before my eyes vividly. It turns out that it is going to be the 11th year for Xiao Zhen to work as my assistant. We experienced so many things together…We went to the set with the extras in a Jinbei [Chinese car brand] van; the place we lived in back then had a leaking problem when it rains; we huddled together in a small corner and had lunch served in partitioned boxes; she held the script and rehearsed the lines with me; we had constests of memorizing the Tang dynasty poetry and the ci poetry of the Song dynasty. Since I started filming [in mainland] in 1999, I had been used to taking care of myself. Then Xiao Zhen appeared. To this day the macro environment for filming is constantly changing, but we still keep learning. It is so nice to feel motivated like this. There is a sentence [Zen proverb] that goes, “The person who drinks it knows best whether the water is hot or cold.” At this moment I think of the staff members working around me. Grateful. Thank you all.

Ah Lv’s Hometown

Group picture of a “Three” road show in Dongguan (taken on 6/26). I remember someone said that day, “Wallace, you must come to Dongguan more often. Afterall, this is Ah Lv aka A-Lu’s [Wallace’s character in “The Continent” (2014)] hometown. (Indeed the clouds are pale and the breeze is light…)

Jokes, Wallace Chung

“Late bloomer”? Young and promising!!!


During a road show of “Three” in Dongguan, Wallace spoke with a fan who had watched “Three” five times.

Wallace: [gasped]: Aren’t your eyes sore?

Fan: No.

W: Isn’t your heart tired [playing around the Chinese internet slang term “My heart is so tired, I feel I can’t fall in love anymore”]?

Fan: No.

Wallace: Why aren’t you tired?

Fan: Because you were in the movie.

Wallace: [laughing] I knew it…Is there anything you really want to share after watching it five times?

Fan: Eh…first, [let’s] welcome…[Wallace craned his neck with curiosity] the young and promising “Movie King”…

Wallace immediately doubled over with laughter. The audience cheered and applauded.

Wallace: OK…say that again…they didn’t hear you clearly. [walked to her] I will give you two mics.


More applause. Wallace danced.

Wallace: [pointing at the fan] Did you guys hear that clearly? [The audience said: No!] You guys didn’t hear that clearly, so let’s ask her to say that again. [laughed] Say that again.


Wallace danced again and the audience called out Wallace’s name with the fan.

Wallace: Did you hear that clearly? Not “late bloomer” [The audience laughed]! But “young and promising”!

The audienced cheered. Wallace laughed and walked aside.

Wallace: That’s it? Do you have things to say about “Three”…

Then the fan shared her thoughts on the documentary about the making of “Three.” She said the teamwork and dedication to excellence moved her. Wallace thanked her on behalf of the “Three” team.


June 18, 2016 is bound to be an unforgettable day for Wallace and his fans. He attended the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) and won the first award in his filmmaking career—”The Male Lead That Grabs the Most Attention in the Media.” The award was given by China Movie Channel’s Media Focus Unit.

Wallace Chung and Fans


He said he must have done something nice in his previous life so that there have been so many people who like him in this life, but the people who like him all feel that they have done something nice in their previous lives so that they didn’t miss him in this life. #钟汉良#
