Wu Chun and Calvin Chen visit Manila
By Rachelle Siazon
Among all the Asian heartthrobs who came here in the past, Chun and Calvin were the ones who are most well-informed about
When asked if they knew that they are very popular among the Filipinos, Calvin replied that they didn’t. In fact, they were quite worried that only a selected few would be waiting for their arrival. Chun further explained, “When we have activities in other countries, sometimes there are fans from the
Fahrenheit vs. F4
Since the mention of their group popped up, the press prodded them about being compared to F4 of the hit Taiwanese series
Sing or Act?
Like most actor-singers, Chen and Calvin enjoy the best of both worlds. But their sense of fulfillment doesn’t only stem from being able to do what they love to do but also from the priceless experience of meeting their avid fans. “I remember one day I talked to Chun and the other members of Fahrenheit and said, ‘Isn’t it weird that we have shook so many hands’. Like how many people can get this experience in their whole life. To be in this business is really a special experience for me. There is so much love from the fans wherever we go,” Calvin gushed.As for Chun’s part, “We love both. When we're singing on stage, we’re face to face with our audience, to all the fans. And you can get their support and love in a straight and direct way. And when we are being actors, the audience, they start to love you as the character you are acting. So I think (sense of fulfillment) is quite different.”
The Real Us
In Romantic Princess, Calvin is a happy-go-lucky flirt who never had a serious relationship while Chun is cast as the responsible type. Hence, Calvin quickly set the record straight about his personality off cam. “I have to say that I’m not a playboy in real life. I’m outgoing in real life but I’m not a playboy. I don’t fool around between girls. And when I found my true love I will be really serious,” he stressed. Chun on the other hand revealed that he shared lots of similarities with his character in the story. “In the drama, Jin worked very hard for his career and he's willing to leave his family and go on his own. And this kind of direction is what I’m doing right now.”
With their drop-dead gorgeous looks, charming smile, and well-built frame, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Chun and Calvin are taken. But it seems that even in their late 20’s, it would be a long time before they get themselves a steady girlfriend. “No time to date. Our company would say, ‘You can have a girlfriend, we don’t mind.’ But you know, with our (hectic schedule), there's no time for us to have a girlfriend at all,” Chun laughingly shared.
