I have a weak constitution and can only handle shock attacks in waves, so there better not be another bomb dropped on my psyche in the near future, or at least until I recover from this latest inevitable hope crushing news. Chris Wu, who has been laying low enjoying his time off for the past month and a half since wrapping King Flower (Substitute Princess) with Nikki Hsieh and James Wen, popped up last weekend for a charity event for patients suffering from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. June 21 was World ALS Day and Chris has been the Taiwanese national celebrity spokesperson since he filmed the movie The Third Wish back in 2011 where he played a single father trying to raise his son as his body slowly deteriorates from the onset of ALS. To prepare for the role Chris became very involved with the ALS association in Taiwan and since then he’s remained a public face to help raise money for research. I’m glad to see Chris out and about, especially attending an event for a cause he’s so passionate about. But then he opened his mouth and out tumbled news I wish I could unhear.
Normally very reserved about his private life, reporters are always trying to fish for gossip so when discussion veered towards James Wen’s recent daddyhood and marriage (James and his long time girlfriend registered their marriage quietly a few weeks ago), Chris expressed great happiness for them and confessed it did make him long for that phase in his own life. When asked the obligatory question about whether he was seeing someone, the media was stunned when he candidly revealed he was in a committed and steady relationship with someone. He wouldn’t reveal who she was (whether an entertainer or someone outside the industry), but said that he was indeed quite serious about her. I probably burst into tears upon hearing this news since obviously his girlfriend is not me, but then I also had a brief bout with amnesia that made all the pain go away. TERRY IS TAKEN! Now I’ve lost ¼ of my will to live with this hope dashed, so if the other three of my drama guys gets nabbed by other women I will promptly need to be resuscitated. On a happier note, Chris revealed that he’s signed on to a new project that starts filming in late July-early August, but no word on whether it’s a drama or movie. Make it a drama, as the leading man, and I forgive you my boy for taking yourself off the market.
