In the twenty years since Wallace Chung (鍾漢良) debuted in the entertainment industry, he has always kept details about his personal life under wraps. However, recent rumors have begun to spread that he married his long-time girlfriend in Taiwan, and that the two already have a child. At a recent press conference, Wallace refused to respond to these rumors, but did not deny them directly.
A few years ago, it was rumored that Wallace was dating a girl from Taiwan, and that their relationship had been going on for several years. According to reports at the time, Wallace’s girlfriend was originally a fan of his and worked at the same business premises where his music studio, Cornucopia Music, is located. Reports also said that Wallace had purchased property in Taipei’s Hsinyi District, although he always kept a low profile when returning to Taiwan, thus ensuring that the relationship remained a secret.
Although Wallace never admitted that he was in a relationship, the rumors have since grown to claim that he and his girlfriend secretly tied the knot, that he is now a father, and that she owns a bread store in eastern Taipei.
At a recent press conference for his movie Drug War <毒戰>, Wallace seemed slightly nervous when reporters asked if he planned to have a family and kids. “I definitely want to,” he replied. “Only then will life be happy. But today, let’s talk first about the movie Drug War.”
Further inquiries about the rumors were evaded in a similar way, with Wallace saying that his “personal matters aren’t important” and that they ought to discuss the movie. He also refused to reply to or refute the claims that his wife owned a bread store. However, he did deny that he owned property in Taiwan.
Since Wallace is now under the management company of Johnnie To (杜琪峰), who is directing Drug War, reporters asked Johnnie what he would do if an artist signed with his company and then got married and had children. Johnnie jokingly replied, “That’s all right. You can have whatever you want, as long as it’s not cancer.” He also added, “It’s fine to have a personal life, as long as you don’t do anything bad.”
