The Wu Chun, Han Geng, Barbie Hsu (Tsui Hei Woon)'s Beijing opera costumes in MY KINGDOM (DAI MO SUN) opened the eyes of many. Han Geng and Wu Chun two months before the film began production started to rehearse Beijing Opera. Big Si in order to play the prettiest action actress risked his beauty for heavy Beijing Opera make up.

One of Wu Chun's costumes was Sun Wukong in HAVOC IN HEAVENLY PALACE. Every time the facial make up was a challenge and each time took one or two hours, its removal was torture for him. He could not move when the make up was removed, otherwise it would run. "The first time with the monkey make up because I didn't know how to remove the make up, I couldn't get it off when I got back."

As a beauty expert in show business, Big S was quite picky with her skin care. In order to play the Bund's top action actress Xi Mulan, she was willing to risk ruining her face. "Every time at head binding it would hurt the scalp. When it was released I would get dizzy. Most importantly, no matter what look the make up would suck the entire face dry." Big S revealed, "At the time the make up artist told me, as a Beijing actor on the face aside from acne was also acne."
