The Jeff Lau Chun Wai directed film JUST ANOTHER PANDORA'S BOX (YUET GUONG BO HUP) had over 60 actors, one of whom was Gigi Leung Wing Kei. Earlier she and the director talked about the production. In the film Betty Sun Li in order to pursue Cheng Chung Kei turned into Leung Wing Kei.
Gigi and Sun Li played the same character. Was her role split? Gigi expressed that the film had 60 actors, all of whom would like to make a good movie for everyone to see. She thought this production was pretty cute and also discovered that actually she and Sun Li truly had some resemblance. She said, "I finally found someone who looks more like me than (Daniel) Chan Hiu Tung." Even director Lau Chun Wai during the shoot mistook Sun Li for Gigi and could not tell them apart. Lau Chun Wai said that Gigi and Sun Li played the same character so their performance must be similar. He felt that they very quickly found the secret. In the film Gigi's costumes were sexier. Gigi honestly said that before the shoot she had to watch what she ate to keep any belly from showing in the costume. Speaking of working with Cheng Chung Kei, Gigi praised his performance as very natural and he absolutely was a natural comedy actor.
Lau Chun Wai earlier made CHINESE ODYSSEY I (SAI GAI GEI ji YUET GUONG BO HUP) and II (SAI GAI GEI ji SIN LOK KEI YUEN) were classics. Both films starred Stephen Chow Sing Chi. Even though he had over 60 actors in JUST ANOTHER PANDORA'S BOX none could compare to one Chow Sing Chi's comedy sense? Lau Chun Wai said, "Chow Sing Chi is someone who is hard to come by in 100 years. This world wouldn't need a second Chow Sing Chi and shouldn't get other people to be compared to him. Cheng Chung Kei is Cheng Chung Kei, you decide whether you would buy the ticket."
In addition. JUST ANOTHER PANDORA'S BOX continued its Mainland promotional tour. Earlier the team reached Shanghai and attended many public events and interviews. Cheng Chung Kei and Sun Li were interviewed nonstop. Due to transportation and exhaustion, the actors could only sleep for a few hours every night. Yet Cheng Chung Kei remained humorous as he took the chance to play a prank on Sun Li. At a television station program taping, while they were waiting backstage he saw Sun Li a butterfly bow that resembled a giant present on her head. When they posed for photos, he grabbed the bow like he was unwrapping a gift. Cheng Chung Kei said, "Sun Li is wearing a bright red long dress and even has a butterfly bow on her head. It's hard not to unwrap this big present."
