Peter Lam Kin Ngok's newly public company Media Asia Group yesterday held a press conference in Shanghai to announce its complete focus on developing in the Mainland and Macau market. Its artists Andy Lau Tak Wa, Leon Lai Ming, Sammi Cheng Sau Man, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, directors Zhang Guoli and Andrew Lau Wai Keung all attended in support.
Lam Kin Ngok's E-Sun Holdings, the Mainland's Yun Feng Capital and others invested 490 million yuan into the Hong Kong public company Rojam Entertainment Holdings Limited (08075) and named it Media Asia Group. A press conference was held at the Shanghai Peninsula Hotel. Media Asia artists attended in support. Lai Ming revealed that he will perform a concert series around his birthday at the end of the year. New Media Asia addition Mark Lui Chung Tak was very happy to be able to work with his good friend. Chin Wa and Zhang Guoli earlier worked together on a television series. Zhang Guoli said that Chin Wa gave him an impression of a motivated actress. Chin Wa said that Zhang Guoli was a good father. When they work together next they could play a couple. Zhang Guoli immediately said, "You can forget it, my wound is just healing." The laughter off stage was endless.
The sequel of the critically acclaimed LOVE IN THE PUFF (JI MING YU CHUN GIU) has already begun production. Leads Shawn Yue Man Lok, Chin Wa and director Pang Ho Cheung attended the event together. The director said that the Hong Kong portion of the shoot has already been completed. In August the team will continue the shoot in Beijing. Would Chin Wa return to baby making after the film? She said, "I am trying everyday, we have to see whether we can make one or not. They (Yue Man Lok and Pang Ho Cheung) are such bothers, always whispering and crackling. On the set they constantly tell dirty jokes." Yue Man Lok asked the director not to ask Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho) to play the third party between them. He grabbed Ng Yin Cho as he passed by and said, "If you are the third party you have to be paired with me, actually I really like you too."
As for the on screen couple of countless films, Lau Tak Wa and Cheng Sau Man dressed in black and white and were well matched. They will soon work together on a Johnnie To Kei Fung directed film again. Wa Jai in the new film will be vision impaired while Sammi will play a police officer who investigates a case with Wa Jai. Wa Jai also revealed on the stage that Zhang Guoli told him to buy the company stock off stage. Wa Jai joked that he would ask the boss to pay in cash instead. Sammi said that she never knew how to invest in stocks so she decided to follow suit and asked the boss for cash as well. When asked about her boyfriend Andy Hui Chi On's August birthday, she said, "No comment on personal matter."
