Earlier, Chow Yun Fat and Zhou Xun worked on the major scene, Confucius meets Nanzi. At the time Fat Gor as Confucius sat kneeling on the ground with his eyes close. The Zhou Xun played Nanzi mischievously ran around Confucius and finally knelt in front of Confucius to discuss the question of "gentlemen prefer ladies". In the face of flirtatious Nanzi Confucius remained unmoved.
