John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) yesterday received the silver bauhinia star badge, he deliberately returned from the U.S. to accept it. He accepted the media interview and humbly said that the award was a big surprise. He claimed that his contribution to the film industry was actually very little, but promised to do more for the community from now on. He even hoped that with his power to help new industry talent. Will he meet with friends like Chow Yun Fat? Director Ng said that due to the tight schedule he believed that would not happen. However he revealed
that he often dined with Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Tsui Hark and others.
Speaking of Director Ng's honor, currently working on their new film THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Chang Chen agreed, "Congratulation Director Ng, hopefully he will make even better movies for the audience to enjoy." Reportedly due to his new film planning, Ng Yu Sum did not plan to celebrate and would have a hard time with vacations and breaks in the short run. Currently working in Beijing, Tsui Hark through Shi Nansun congratulated Ng Yu Sum and thought that he deserved it. However because he was not in Hong Kong he could not celebrate with him.
