The Wong Jing directed film TO LIVE AND DIE IN MONGKOK (WONG GOK GAM YUK) two nights ago held an advanced screening at the Convention Center for film critics and 200 university students. Brother Jing even attended with actors Liu Kai Chi, Natalie Meng Yao and new actor Tang Tat Bo who played the young Nick Cheung Ka Fai. A forum was held after the screening for studetns to conduct exchange with actors and the director. The audience response was overwhelming.

A student asked Brother Jing whether his character in the film had any relationship scene with actress Monica Mok Siu Kei. Brother Jing honestly said that in the film he had a crush on the prostitute, but because he was the night club manager he could not have any relationship with her. He could only bury his feelings. Uncle Chi asked Brother Jing, "Brother Jing are you talking about in the movie or outside the movie?" The audience immediately applauded and cheered. Brother Jing calmly responded, "Of course in the movie!"

With the currently Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress winners in the film, Brother Jing pointed out that four award a winning actors' performance of course was beyond any doubt. Instead two actors in the film, Mok Siu Kei and Wai Ka Hung, gave surprising performances and held their own. This time Meng Yao played a mentally challenged woman, which was a challenge for her.
