After Li Chen (李晨) accused ex-girlfriend Viann Zhang (张馨予) of cheating on him with a “Mr. Huo”, the person was speculated to be Wallace Huo (霍建华). Viann and Wallace were rumored to have dated in late 2013. Many of Wallace’s fans came to their idol’s defense, exclaiming that Wallace had always been low-profile about his private life.
At a press conference for The Journey of Flower <花千骨> last week, Wallace appeared unfazed about the current rumors. He was in a good mood throughout the conference and answered questions about the drama humorously. When asked how he managed to maintain such a low profile in his personal life, Wallace said, “I just want to do what I want to do and film the series I want to film.”
He then implied that he was still single and said he is waiting for fate. Age is not a concern when it comes to true love.
After promoting the series, Wallace was asked to comment on the rumors claiming that he was the third person in Li Chen and Viann’s relationship. The actor responded safely, “My studio has already made a response to that. I will not respond further. I am in a good mood today and [the rumor] has not affected me.” Wallace said over 20 “thank you’s” in the short 10-minute interview.
The Journey of Flower is adapted from the fantasy short story of the same name. It stars Zanilia Zhao (赵丽颖) in the titular role. The 54-episode series premiered on Hunan TV on June 9.
