Wong Cho Nam, Yuen Siu Cheung and Johnson Lee Si Jit have become a popular trio. After just completing a television series, they recently started work on the film THE FORTUNE BUDDIES (GAING CHAU FOK LUK SAU). This time they would box in the film. Yesterday a production start ceremony was held at the Kowloon Bay Exhibition Center. Aside from "Fok Luk Sau", Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Maggie Cheung Ho Yi, Samantha Ko Hoi Ning, Macy Chen Mei Si and Pauline Wong Siu Fung who has been in retirement for years. This film will also have others many actors like Bosco Wong Chung Chak, Fala Chen, Michael Tse Tin Wa and Richard Ng Yiu Hong, but they did not attend yesterday.
Yesterday the cast also conducted the roast pig cutting ceremony, Wong Cho Nam, Cheung Ho Yi, and executive Elaine Lok Yi Ling yesterday did not participate in the ceremony due to religious reasons but held hands and formed a prayer circle. Wong Chung Chak whose nude photo was published was absent yesterday. Chi Wai said that he has not read the report, which claimed that Chung Chak smoked naked while Myolie Wu Hung Yi went to his home with her costume hairstyle still in tact. Chi Wai could not help but laugh, "Sounds like fun, they know how to promote." However Chi Wai also felt bad for him. Although people often said it is a part of
being an artist, it should only be limited to the streets. He thought being naked at home was perfectly fine, the hidden camera shot was wrong.
Ko Hoi Ning said that later she will go with Chi Tan to Osaka, Japan to shoot the SUPER TRIO series. Speaking of Wong Chung Chak's hidden camera incident, she said that lately a co-worker's privacy was violated at home due to a hidden camera shot. She said that she has always been very careful and would close the curtains when she changed in her room. In addition she lived with her parents and brother so at home she would be more careful. TVB executive Lok Yi Ling said that such hidden camera shots affect the society and even the next generation. Two nights ago TVB issued a statement and later might take further action. Ms. Lok said that she needed to provide psychological consulting and comfort to the artist. She could only ask artists to keep the curtains close at home all the time as if they were living in prison.
Wong Siu Fung after marriage retired from film and focused on her family in the U.S. Recently Chi Wai invited her to return to Hong Kong and make a movie so she returned. Sister Siu Fung has always been direct. Yesterday she appeared in a low cut dress and caught reporters taking
photos from up high. She joked, "I don't have anything to show you, I just have two fried eggs!"
Wong Siu Fung said that her son was already 19, now she had more personal time. Earlier Chi Wai called her and his first words were asking her to return with foul language. This time she returned to Hong Kong because they have been friends for several decades. She would stay
in Hong Kong for three weeks then return to the U.S. After so many years away from film, was Wong Siu Fung used to it? Wong Siu Fung said that since 94 she has not made a movie. This time as soon as she got off the plane she worked 20 hours straight. She said, "It's utter disregard for life!"
Siu Fung in the film played Chi Wai's wife. She needed to get used to the shoot in the beginning and said that she was already out of touch. She said, "I started acting as soon as the director yelled rounding, actually now I still have to wait until action then several seconds before I start acting." Wong Siu Fung also said that playing Chi Wai's wife was truly a benefit for him. Chi wai struck back and said, "(Carina) Lau Ka Ling, (Anita) Yuen Wing Yi, (Teresa) Mo Shun Kwan all
have played my wife, what makes you special?" Chi Wai joked that he asked Siu Fung to return because she was mean enough, which made her very suitable to play his wife.
