Prince Of Love Ballads Victor Wong tells Loong Wai Ting that he has a lot on his plate
PUTTING an end to his bachelor status, Malaysia-born, Taiwan-based singer Victor Wong registered his marriage to Hong Kong girlfriend of five years, known as J, early this year.
Wong made headlines two years ago as the “runaway groom” when he did not turn up at his wedding registration.
Now, happily-married to the same woman he left two years ago, the Prince Of Love Ballads was in Kuala Lumpur recently to promote his latest album, A Gift Of Love.
“After my marriage everything seems natural but work is very hectic,” he says.
Wong, who will play a stinky tofu seller in Pasar Malam, a locally-produced movie also starring Chris Tong, is also busy preparing for his Shanghai concert in June.
The 39-year-old singer, who was here for a concert three years ago, says: “I really hope I can return soon for another round of concerts, since I’ve been to Shanghai for a show for three consecutive years.”
While nothing is concrete yet, Wong, who also plays the guitar, is excited about being in a movie again (after his eye-catching performance as Prince Charming in Ah-Niu’s Ice Kacang Puppy Love).
Of his role in Pasar Malam, Wong says: “Whenever I have time, I will go to the nearest night market in Taiwan to research on the tofu sellers.”
In his new album, A Gift Of Love, Wong impersonates famous singers such as Wakin Chou and Fei Yu-ching in one of his songs.
He says that A Gift Of Love, his 12th studio album, is a warm-hearted one, and recommends listening to it while driving to work.
