The film THE LEGEND IS BORN: IP MAN (IP MAN CHIN JUEN) two days ago held a press conference. To Yu hung who played Ip Man in the film, Huang Yi who played Cheung Wing Sing, Louis Fan Siu Wong, Yuen Biao, Rose Chan Ka Wun all attended. Ip Man's 86 year old son Ip Chun also recorded his well wishes. He said IP MAN and IP MAN 2 more or less left some regret, but THE LEGEND IS BORN: IP MAN added many details from his father's life. He felt that this was complete work that resembled his father the most in the Ip Man films.
Huang Yi this time in A LEGEND IS BORN: IP MAN broke the previous Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam) created "Cheung Wing Sing" image. She not only played an "ahead of her time" wife but also Mrs. Ip Man who could fight. Huang Yi expressed that in the society at that time, she fell in love with Ip Man. The girl pursuing the guy was easy, but at the time in the traditional society it was very "ahead of her time". She expressed that when she and Ip Man met it was love at first sight and first fight. The overall story had to be kept under wrap for now. Huang Yi said that Cheung Wing Sing was a descendant of a famous Foshan family. They were quite far apart. Ip Man was not much of a talker. When they were together they experienced a lot of hardship. Although Cheung Wing Sing knew Wing Chun, she absolutely was not a tomboy. To the man who she loved she was still very gentle.
Huang Yi was a World Expo sign language image ambassador, but at the request of the media, in a short dress and high heels Huang Yi still performed self created Wing Chun that was "ahead of its time". Huang Yi also used sign language to interpret the film's Chinese title.
