To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Macau's Hand Over, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television two nights ago held THE STAR AND THE SEA night at the Macau Observation Tower and screened the Macau background new film THE STAR AND THE SEA. The film's cast Alec Su Yau Peng, Wong Sing Yeung, So Ka Hong and So Heung Mui along with two directors Lee Chin Foon and Chiu Kwai Wan attended the event. Macau Special Administrative Region Chief Executive Edmund Ho Hau Wah also host the button cutting ceremony.
So Yau Peng said, "I am very honored to participate in this film. Actually during the shoot I had to work on another film THE MESSAGE. I thank the directors' arrangements for me so I can be two places at once. In the film I played Xian Xinghai's mentor." He also said, originally he had an affair with a female character but the part was ultimately cut. Because people at the time were very conservative, he could only be the mentor of the female character's son. So Yau Peng felt that this time he should have brought his mother and joked that she used to apply a lot of capital punishment on him.
