The Dante Lam Chiu Yin directed film THE VIRAL FACTOR (YIK JIN) was still in production and took advantage of the weekend to shoot Nicholas Tse Ting Fung's escape with hostage Lin Peng. Director Lam Chiu Yin during an earlier shoot injured his knee and still has not recovered. With three cameras rolling simultaneously in a large location, he had to ride a bicycle between teams. Due to the recent unstable weather, the production progress has been hindered. This bicycle also became the best tool for the director to fight for daylight. Many workers worried about the director's injury, but he still has not have the time to have an operation. He had to wait until the shoot was over before handling it.
The team was very interested in the director's "personal transportation" as everyone rode the bicycle on their free time. Tse Ting Fung also became one of the bicycle men. He also held a prop shotgun to play the Terminator and Lin Peng could not help but laugh. She said before coming in contact with Ting Fung, she read reports about him. He was always described as very cool and hard to get along with. At first she worried that they could not cooperate, but after working together for awhile she discovered that Ting Fung actually was a big kid. He just warmed up slower. After getting familiar he was very friendly and was willing to learn his junior.
