The John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) produced, Su Chao-Bin directed REIGN OF ASSASSINS (GYIM YU) two nights ago held its Hong Kong premiere. Leads Jung Woo-Sung and Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King) continued to play a sweet couple. Not only did they often hold hands, Jung Woo-Sung was even more attentive when Michelle ascended to and descended from the stage. He lightly held her hand and put his arm around her shoulder. During the confetti cannon he even helped Michelle, they were much sweeter than a real couple.
In the film, Jung Woo-Sung carried Michelle many times. The host asked them to demonstrate, Michelle joked that she was very heavy. Jung Woo-Sung said, "As long as I am carrying Michelle, I am willing to go anywhere." The host asked him what the difference was between Korean and Hong Kong girls. He lovingly looked at Michelle and said, "Michelle is the most important, she is the most special person." Michelle then leaned on his shoulder. To act with Michelle, Jung Woo-Sung said that the language was not the most important. As long as their hearts were connected, they would know what the other was thinking without speaking. Michelle who has not made an martial art action film in ten years said that she had pressure picking up the sword again. On several occasions she was worried that she would hit Big S (Barbie Hsu) because she was pretty.
While Michelle and Jung Woo-Sung were sweet from on screen to off screen, Shawn Yue Man Lok revealed that in real life Michelle and her boyfriend Jean Todt were also very sweet. He remember when Jean visited the set in Hengdian around Christmas. Although he lived in Europe he still could not take the Hengdian chill, but for Michelle he toughed it out. Ah Lok's former rumored girlfriend Emme Wong Yi Man was dating Chan Kwok Kwan. Ah Lok said that he would not talk about the past, as long as they were happy he was fine. Yet when he learned that they have not admitted to dating, he dodged all related questions. Has he seen Chingmy Yau Suk Ching's new born daughter? He also reluctantly said, "I am not at liberty to talk about others, but I have already congratulated them."
Paw Hee Ching 20 years ago worked with Ng Yu Sum in BULLET IN THE HEAD (DIP HUET GAI TAU). She naturally felt happy to be a part of his film again. Sister Paw siad, "When I saw the director, I was immediately much more confident." Her scene with Yue Man Lok was the most memorable to her because she had a double to instruct her on how to perform the scene, no wonder it was a big production.
