Competing for the Jin Jue Award, the fantasy romance REST ON YOUR SHOULDER appeared at the Shanghai International Film Festival. Director Jacob Cheung Chi Leung had a neck problem, Chen Kun was working overseas, Kwai Lun-Mei was busy with the Asian new comer jury work, so the press conference was only left with Gigi Leung Wing Kei and Jiang Yiyan.
Leung Wing Kei played a veteran reporter in the film. The three female leads in the film were recognized as Jin Jue Award Best Actress competitors. Leung Wing Kei responded that her character in the film was very independent and loving, the entire film production was very pleasant. "I hope more for the director and other actors to win, whether I win it truly doesn't matter. I won't feel any regret." Speaking of working with Chen Kun, Leung Wing Kei sighed, "In the film Siu Mei and I were his left and right shoulders, we both rely on him. Yet in real life, I prefer to be an adventurous butterfly." When asked in life would she go so crazy for love, Leung Wing Kei calmly said, "If love touches me, I would definitely be willing to give." Reporters asked whether Leung Wing Kei had such an experience in the past. Leung Wing Kei wisely laughed. "You give me one night, after I think about it I will tell you!"
However in her private interaction with Chen Kun, Leung Wing Kei revealed without any hesitation that she would interestingly call Chen Kun "Uncle Kun" while Chen Kun called her "Auntie Leung". Leung Wing Kei even praised that Chen Kun privately was a very fun person. "In life he is a very attentive guy who also is passionate about acting." The other lead Taiwan popular idol Kwai Lun-Mei said, in the film she played a scientific study companion of Chen Kun. "in real life I am willing to be a 'shoulder' to make people feel a sense of duty and responsibility." In the film playing Chen Kun's fiance, Jiang Yiyan said, "He is very elegant, very refreshing". She said that although the butterfly stole many of her scenes, she played two roles and was "switched identity". She thought it was worth it. REST ON MY SHOULDER will open nationwide on July 8.
