As the cast and crew of Wu Yifan’s acting debut, ‘有一個地方只有我們知道 Somewhere Only We Know’ wraps up filming & movie commences post-production phase, the lead actors and actresses Wu Yifan, Wang Likun, Zhang Chao, Re Yizha – as well as Director Xu Jinglei stood in front of the media to answer all the curiosities about the anticipated Valentines’ treat – during a press conference held at Beijing, September 11.
Held in Beijing, the media and fans alike were welcomed with a sweet-themed venue complete with pianos, post boxes, and everything else reminiscent of the harmonious side of Prague. For a treat, after Director Xu opened the program, Wu Yi Fan, who plays lead character Ze Yang, serenaded the enthusiastic hearts of the audience with his rendition of John Legend’s ‘All Of Me’ – in his trademark English skill. Accompanied by the soulful tones of the piano, everyone was seemingly given a glimpse of the love story Wang’s and Wu’s characters both portrayed in the movie. While Wu sang to the audience, the screen on the stage played scenes everyone can expect – including the romantic interactions between the characters, and music-playing displays. Shortly after, the host inquired about Wu’s musical likes such as songwriting. He then shyly admitted that he himself, might be able to showcase his songwriting skills for the movie.
Following Wu’s stage, all of the members of the cast joined the spotlight to finally entertain several questions that ranged from the outside-the-film moments they shared together, as well as a few clues about how the story flowed. The cast recollected the happy memories they made together when they played pool (billiards) – which allowed Director Xu to throw a playful question which was then answered by Wu. When asked who played pool the best, Wu shyly admitted that it was the ‘beautiful, Director Xu.’ Director Xu, in response, also praised Wu’s pool skills, as well as his endurance to do push-ups. Continuing the playful talk, to test Wu’s Mandarin pronunciations (which was, according to Director Xu, a bit of a problem during the initial filming as Wu stayed in South Korea for quite an amount of time) the host asked the young actor to recite a tongue twister, which earned a laugh from himself and from everyone who listened. It was also revealed that Wu had to undergo a ‘strict diet’ to match Ze Yang’s image – who also, according to himself, was an arrogant, complicated, and introverted character.
Several scenes from the movie, such as a dramatic confrontation between Wang and Wu’s characters, humorous moments, as well as behind-the-scenes captures, were also revealed during the event. To share a bit of information, the cast also revealed that Wu had to do a basketball ‘dunk’ in one scene, which earned the young man praises from everyone who witnessed.
Throughout the press conference, SOWK’s Official Weibo also posted live updates and photos from the event itself. Director Xu, Wu Yifan, and the rest of the cast also entertained interviews from the press people backstage – where Director Xu Jinglei confidently promised that Wu Yifan will become a superstar. Before leaving the stage, Wu was also spotted smiling towards the direction of his fans who diligently attended the event; some even bringing flower wreaths to congratulate him on his first movie. As the excitement never ends, official photos were also shortly released to the public for the fans to enjoy while waiting for more sneak peeks. The press conference lasted for about an hour.

One of the fans at the airport lost her Iphone 5 last night. Her friends called the phone to find where it is. It was in Kris’ bag. Kris met up with her today to give it back to her. She also got an autograph.
*note* Kris’ luggage were in a cart which was also quite wide open. There was a lot (I tell you A LOT… got pushed onto Kris quite a few times) of pushing and shoving too so it is possible.
Cr. EXO-MKrisV (this is the lucky girl TT)
Apparently, EXO is returning to Changsha to do a shooting for Happy Camp. So they were arrived at the airport with a lot of fans waiting for their arrival. Fans waiting for their idols is a great thing. However this can get really worrisome and even chaotic.
Today in Changsha airport, apparently fans were pushing their way to get to EXO that members Lay, Luhan and even Tao shouted. Lay does not seem the type to get angry easily too, so this must have been very bad.
A fan fell.
Chanyeol fell too!
Please, everyone, going to the airport to pick up your idols is fine but keep in mind, your idols are humans too. GIVE THEM SPACE!!!
DO NOT HURT YOURSELF! DO NOT HURT ANYONE! DO NOT HURT EXO!
The situation at Changsha airport is so bad, many fans fell and Lay and Luhan actually shouted.
At Changsha a fan fell, security pushed her, Lay got mad and shouted “Why did you push her!!! Can’t you see that she fell !!!”
Even though boys were near the car they couldn’t get in, Chanyeol and Tao were really unhappy. When they arrived they were happy but the moment they stepped outside, their expressions changed and Luhan was fuming mad
Luhan and Lay was very angry and standing in front of the car door and saying “Don’t squeeze” loudly. (cr: Beyami)
Chanyeol fell, Kai covered his eyes, Tao and Sehun both looked angry and Lay, Tao and Luhan were yelling for fans to stop.
Luhan was protecting Baekhyun the whole way ;; Lay got pushed so Luhan got mad and he and Lay actually yelled for the first time.
EXO didn’t go by VIP. Though Tao was pushed really hard, he turned around to pull Sehun who was far behind to board the car together.
