Chen Kun, Kwai Lun-Mei, Mavis Fan Hiu Huen earlier posed for a magazine cover to promote FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE (LUNG MOON FEI GAP). The trio during the interview all said that director Tsui Hark gave their image an 180 degree turn. Chen Kun went from a gentleman to a villain. Always a nice girl, Kwai Lun-Mei turned into a sassy and wild minority tribeswoman. With her outstanding personality, Fan Hiu Huen became a tender woman.
Claiming to rarely make fight scenes, Chen Kun spent 9 months for the most basic physical, boxing and martial art training. As the sassy princess Kwai Lun-Mei at first did not know where to start. "Until when costume designer Mr. Yee Chung Man darkened my face, drew tattoos on it, put a wig and a costume on me. Then all the foreign territory woman's dominance, exotic wildness all came out. I still remember after my first fight scene I imagined myself to be a wild wolf or a leopard on the prowl."
The tender character seemed to be quite distant from Fan Hiu Huen's personality. She said, "The director said that woman is like water, with a very wide range of space for imagination. Haha! Luckily during the shoot under the leadership of the director and other co-stars I gradually entered into the character's world!"
