New film LOVER's DISCOURSE (LUEN YUN SHUI YU) directors and writers Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung and Jimmy Wan Chi Man yesterday appeared on a RoadShow program and shared their experience as their new film competed in the 15th Pusan Film Festival for the New Wave award.
The cast included Karena Lam Ka Yun, Eason Chan Yik Shun, Mavis Fan Hiu Huen, Kay Tse On Kay, Eric Tsang Chi Wai and others. Tsang Kwok Cheung said that before the production started, actors already asked him to save a role for them. Chan Yik Shun was one of those who raised his hand and asked. He also revealed that Lam Ka Yun and Chan Yik Shun were very excited about the chance to work with each other. After years in the business, they have never worked together.
As for Tse On Kay and Chan Yik Shun being in the same film, Tsang Kwok Cheung said, "Before they were linked in gossip we have already asked Tse On Kay to perform. After our impression and text message strategy, we also worked on her husband Louis Cheung Kai Chung who had a stage background. After Cheung Kai Chung read the script, our sincerity finally enabled the collaboration. Later Tse On Kay indeed considered it for awhile due to the gossip. Because their parts were different they did not meet in the film."
