ROMANCING IN THIN AIR (GO HOI BUT JI LUEN II) will be released during Valentine's Day. The film company has always used a snowy scenery as a poster theme. For Louis Koo Tin Lok and Sammi Cheng Sau Man who lived in the thin air deep mountains for two months, the snow was even more memorable because when snow fell in Shangri-La, the temperature was 20 degrees Celsius below zero.
Sammi kept looking forward to snow though. "yet waiting for snow was very tough. Everyday we stared at the sky, but I thought the longer I looked forward to it the more feeling it had. Waiting was a process, I would enjoy it." Sammi spoke so romantically because while shooting in the snow most of the time she did not need to move as most of the time she fainted. In the film Goo Jai had to carry her out of the forest.
When Goo Jai talked about this scene he made it so very easy, but actually the crew all worried for him. Because in Shangri-La even quiet breathing was somewhat difficult, Goo Jai even had to exercise, carry Sammi and run in the forest. The crew was afraid that Goo Jai would have breathing difficulties. Goo Jai said to everyone, "What are you afraid of? Sammi isn't even 100 pounds, carrying her is very easy. You don't have to worry so much!" However, easy might be easy. After each shot when Goo Jai put Sammi down, Sammi still made fun of him, "You say it's very easy, you are all out of breath!"
