ROMANCING IN THIN AIR (GO HOI BUT JI LUEN II) earlier held a small media screening. Most female viewers were moved to tears and some viewers had to remain in their seats after the show ended to settle down. Sammi Cheng Sau Man and Louis Koo Tin Lok were very pleased to learn about the great audience response. They liked this film very much as well.
Sammi pointed out that Goo Jai has always had quite a sense of comedy. This time he had several scenes in which Sammi had a very hard time with holding back her laughter. In one scene Goo Jai just arrived in Shangri-La. He could not adjust to the climate and had to get an intravenous drip due to a lack of oxygen. With his IV drip in his right hand and wine in his left, he looked very funny already. Even the crew thought Goo Jai looked very funny, but everyone cherished their oxygen and thus held back their laughter. Otherwise they could easily be short of breath. Goo Jai of course replaced the wine with tea. He said, "I was already short of breath and they still wanted me to chug. If the bottle was real I was dead for sure, of course I replaced it with tea! I didn't want to truly become like Michael in the movie and had to breathe with an oxygen tank!" On and off camera everyone's movement and speech were slower. Goo Jai joked that when To Sir (Johnnie To Kei Fung) reached the mountain, he did not even yell at anyone and the world had peace.
As for Goo Jai and Sammi's romantic scene, they said that it felt very comfortable. Yet a motorcycle scene reminded everyone of Sammi and Wa Jai (Andy Lau Tak Wa). Sammi said that the motorcycle ride felt very different with Wa Jai than with Goo Jai. She said, "Back then I saw behind Wa Jai, of course it felt great! However this time on the motorcycle with Goo Jai felt more fun, maybe because it was in Shangri-La. The scenery was beautiful and the air was fresher! So this time was very memorable." Goo Jai was very excited to ride the motorcycle and felt very satisfied. He felt how high Sammi was behind him.
