The Oxide Pang Shun directed THE DETECTIVE II (B+ JING TAM) will open in May. Two days ago the director along with the cast Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Patrick Tam Yiu Man, Izz Tsui Ching Hei and Gong Beibi attended the Beijing press conference. At the event, the film company deliberately set up a mock crime scene for Kwok Fu Sing who was promoted to B+ Detective. The bloody corpse added some horror color to the press conference. Facing the murder, Kwok Fu Sing calmly picked up a magnifying glass to investigate the crime scene and the victim. After a few minutes of deduction, he overturned the earlier autopsy report and claimed that "the victim died at the hands of someone close to her". After the investigation Kwok Fu Sing was pleased with him. "This type of murder is only a small case, THE DETECTIVE II is the real deal!"
Winning two Golden Horse Best Actor with DIVERGENCE (SAM CHA HAU) and AFTER THIS OUR EXILE (FU JI), Kwok Fu Sing in the film continued to play a private detective and worked with director Pang Shun for the third time. He honestly said, "The director not only asked me to elevate from C+ to B+, but also asked the entire film to elevate completely. My character went from new private detective to B+ detective, his investigation abilities elevated a lot. In the film I experienced a chilling murder that contacted the darkest side of humanity. During the shoot I repeatedly felt very heavy psychological pressure. I very quickly wanted to finish and return to the sunshine."
In addition Tam Yiu Man said that he stressed about the film's challenging two faced character. "In the film I played Liu Kai Chi's superior, a cop who could be either good or evil; viewers would have no way to know before the final moment. This to me is a challenge, I have to play every scene with two faces so viewers have no way to deal." Playing "important leads" in the film, new comers Tsui Ching Hei and Gong Beibi both admitted that THE DETECTIVE II's character personalities were very complex. Gong Beibi even complained, "While make THE DETECTIVE II I cried from the beginning to the end, my eyes in the end were swollen and I was on the brink of a breakdown."
