The Tsui Hark directed film FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE (LUNG MOON FEI GAP) two days ago held a press conference in Beijing and the premiere at night. Zhang Xinyu who posted her own bed photo on boyfriend Ron Ng Chek Hei's microblog did not attend the press conference but did walk the red carpet at the premiere. Today she will come to Hong Kong for the Lunar New Year film I LOVE HONG KONG 2012 (NGOR OI HK 2012 HEI GA SEUNG GA) for a three day shoot and will be the target of the media.
Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit) revealed that Zhou Xun had 50 bad takes for one scene, which kept everyone from dinner. Zhou Xun admitted that she indeed ran into her most disastrous day. "I have never had over 40 bad takes, at the time I truly was down as my self confidence was completely damaged. However later after Lee Nin Kit saw the scene he said that even professional stuntman would need over 40 takes for this scene. His comfort made me feel better." Although the film will be released on the same day in the Mainland as Zhang Yimou's FLOWERS OF WAR, but Tsui Hark and Lee Nin Kit did not care about internal struggle but cared about the two film's international influence; Tsui Hark even encouraged viewers to see FLOWERS.
The DRAGON cast due to the production formed the "Dragon Gate Alumni Association", which included Master Chen Chen Kun, Big Silly Zhou Zhou Xun, Big Brother Li Lee Nin Kit and Big Cannon Kwai Kwai Lun-Mei. Zhou Xun joked that originally she was the president but because Lee Nin Kit's kung fu was too amazing, she had to give up here seat. When asked if Tsui Hark joined them, what nickname would they give him? Chen Kun said, "Big Strange Tsui, Old Strange Tsui, Demon Tsui."
