The press conference was held at ten o’clock in the morning on 12th of June in Shanghai to officially introduce the two leads and the director of You’re My Sunshine. Wallace Chung who is well-known as little sun (xiao tai yang) since his debut and Tiffany Tang Yan have been officially confirmed as the leads. Filming for the 30 episode drama will commence on 25th June for 3 months. Hopefully this fresh pairing will create sizzling hot chemistry on screen.
It is not known who’ll be the other cast members including the university version of Yi Chen and Mo Sheng. Hence, there is no need to worry that Wallace is too old for the role since he will not portray the younger Yi Chen. The director of the drama is the same Taiwanese director who filmed another of Gu Man’s novel Come & Eat, Shan Shan. Liu Jun Jie is known as the ‘god-father’ of idol drama having directed the popular idol drama called The Prince Who Turns into a Frog.
When Wallace was asked about his impression of Tiffany, he didn’t know what to say & uttered ” I….I….I didn’t know she is so tall.” LOL
Tiffany’s impression of Wallace is that he is very nice and suitable to play Yi Chen.
Because Yi Chen waited 7 years for Mo Sheng, the leads were asked if they’ll wait that long for a love relationship in real life. Wallace replied honestly, “That is too difficult.” Whereas Tiffany replied that if the guy really loves her, she is willing to wait.
They exchanged presents during the press conference. Wallace ordered a necklace with ‘You’re My Sunshine’ written on it but he only found out on the spot that it has ‘Hello Sunshine’ wrongly written on it.
The fans asked Wallace to help Tiffany to put on the necklace and he took quite a while to ‘clumsily’ put it on for her. Thus, the host commented Wallace seemed to have no experience in helping women to wear necklace making Tiffany blush. After putting on the necklace for her, he told her loudly, “You’re My Sunshine.”
In exchange, Tiffany gave a wallet to Wallace. He asked if there is any money in it:P Tiffany replied no but there is a picture of Mo Sheng. Then Wallace said, great it can be used as the drama prop, haha……
Because Zhao Mo Sheng is a photographer, so the director gave her a camera for her to photograph her sweet moments with He Yi Chen!
Wallace and Tiffany were made to write down what Yi Chen and Mo Sheng most wanted to say to each other seven years ago before their separation. Wallace tried to cheat by peeping at Tiffany’s one but got rebuked by the host. In his lawyer Yi Chen’s defend mode, he said he was just checking out her hand-writing, LOL.
Then, they sealed the letters in two envelopes and put them in the mailbox. When the drama weibo (something like facebook) has more than 100,000 comments, what both of them had written will be announced separately.
