The film TREASURE HUNTER (CHI LING) two nights ago held its Hong Kong premiere. Leads Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun), Lin Chiling and director Kevin Chu Yen-Ping attended. Chiling after the premiere immediately returned to work in Taiwan.
Chiling deliberately wore flat shoes to the event to avoid being taller than Jay. Chu Yen-Ping mentioned that TREASURE HUNTER's European and American sales have been decent, which might have something to do with Jay being in GREEN HORNET. However he joked that after Jay became famous in Hollywood he was afraid that Jay would never work with him again. Jay said that he never thought about rising in Hollywood because he was not used to that environment. He also said that Chiling with her fluent English would be more suitable. He even praised her to be more distinctive next to European and American female stars. Now the only issue was opportunity. Chu Yen-Ping pointed out that although Chiling and Jay did not have any intimate scene, their relationship performance was great. Chu Yen-Ping also mentioned that in the film Jay would sneak a peek when Chiling was bathing. He felt that they performed the scene very well.
Chu Yen-Ping also mentioned that the big scenes were no problem for him, but he felt that due to the generation gap he had difficulties with young people's dialogue. He even claimed to be an old hand at relationship scenes. Luckily Chiling at the time wrote to him with her opinions. He felt that she had a lot of potential for screen writing. Chiling humbly said that she never thought about that and dared not to. the film's action director Yuen Woo Ping also would like to work with her again. He expressed that she looked forward to it. As for her first film theme song performance that people criticized her "chick voice" for, she immediately said, "That's it! Don't say anymore!" She even said that although Jay did not give her any opinion musically, she was already very happy being able t sing his song. She also revealed that Jay often played magic tricks on the set and attracted the crew to watch. The director also praised Jay's great action scene performance. Jay expressed that he was not an action star and felt that he could not possibly be more outstanding than Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit). As for the wager of Hollywood fame, he said that would depend on Heaven. He never thought about working in Hollywood. Instead Chiling would be more suitable than him with her fluent English.
