Famous action director Yuen Woo Ping's classic martial art film TRUE LEGEND (BEGGAR SO) yesterday held its trailer premiere press conference in Beijing. He personally led the actors Zhao Wen Zhou, Guo Xiaodong and Andy On Chi Kit in attendance and announced that the film has already been scheduled for a Spring Festival release. At the event, Yuen Woo Ping explained the leads and their characters' beginning. Yuen Woo Ping pointed out that Zhao Wen Zhou who played Beggar So was the top middle age Mainland kung fu star. With numerous previous film and television honing, he was at peak both physically and martial art wise. Thus he was completely suitable to play the character. As for the two new generation actors Guo Xiaodong and On Chi Kit, their performance was decent and had their own specialty. They both played important roles in the progression of the story.
Although the film's three other leads Zhou Xun, Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun) and Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King) could not attend due to scheduling conflicts, they appeared in the trailer. Working abroad, Zhou Xun even recorded a video for the occasion. As the first female lead, Zhou Xun although did not have any fight scene still added a lot of color to the drama with her excellent acting.
