Leehom Wang Visits Family in New York, to Join “The Voice of China”
Thanks to the busy filming schedule for Cyber <駭客交鋒>, an upcoming action film starring Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, and Tang Wei (湯唯), singer/actor Leehom Wang (王力宏) has not had a chance to visit his family in New York State for the past three months. During a recent break in filming, Leehom rushed home to celebrate Chinese Father’s Day, which took place on August 8, and uploaded a photo on his Sina Weibo to show off the happy family reunion.
According to Leehom, he and his younger brother displayed their filial obedience by playing tennis with their father and helping him clean up the house. The two brothers quickly found themselves on the losing end of the tennis court, since their father plays three times a week. Nevertheless, they enjoyed the rare opportunity to participate in their father’s favorite sport.
Because Leehom has limited time to spend with his father, he figured that helping him clean up the house was the “most practical” Father’s Day gift. He recalled that once, when he was 11 years old, he helped his father set up the ceramic tiles in their house. “When we finished setting them up, we pressed our handprints into the remaining cement,” Leehom shared. “[My father] did his left hand, and I did my right hand.”
During this family visit, Leehom also dropped by his old music school, which he had attended since he was 6 years old, as well as a videotape store where he had previously worked. “In high school, I worked the cash register, so I had to have watched every movie in the store,” he said. “Now when I film movies, I can use the knowledge that I learned then.”
After his weeklong break, Leehom will return to filming Cyber. On August 16, he will also fly to Shanghai to serve as a judge for the second season of The Voice of China <中國好聲音>.
