In THE WARRING STATE (JIN GOK) Francis Ng Chun Yu and Sun Honglei played two major historical characters Pang Juan and Sun Bin. The female leads were top Korean beauty Kim Hee-Sun and Little Princess of Asia Jing Tian. The film was Kim Hee-Sun's first film after becoming a mother. Thus during the shoot, she often shared her sweet married life with the team and even showed off her daughter's baby photos. She said, "Shooting in China feels too free and too comfortable because all the chores at home are left with my husband. However I still miss my beloved daughter every moment, I even worried that Hubby would forget to feed and change her."
Kim Hee-Sun also said that during THE WARRING STATE, the team treated her very well as she was often invited to drink and sing with them to relieve stress. However she complained that every time Sun Honglei sang he asked to sing THE MYTH (SUN WA) theme song with her, so he could sing Jackie Chan's part and feel like a singer.
Sun Honglei revealed that during the shoot he suffered on and off screen because in the film he suffered Ng Chun Yu's cruel torture and off camera they shot near the border everyday. The shoot was so tough that he finally had kidney stone. Completely helpless, he could only take time off to go to the hospital for treatment. In addition he also had to tolerate a procedure that was as painful as having a child before he was able to continue with the shoot.
