The Herman Yau Lai To directed LOVE LIFTING (GO GUI OI) will be released in March. In the film Elanne Kong Yeuk Lam played a weightlifter Li Li who retired due to diabetes and fell in love with a divorcee whose business failed, To Man Jat. In the film Ah Jat tossed aside his usual comedy image and played a good man who gave his all for his wife and made money alone for the family. Kong Yeuk Lam also fell for Ah Jat's good man image. During the shoot she felt very warm and very fortunate. After the shoot she was reluctant to part with this good "hubby".
Kong Yeuk Lam in order to bring to life the weightlifter kept eating to gain weight. She also accepted a series of hellish weightlifting training and strengthened her arms. On and off screen she was called "Strong Girl". She said that this was the furthest she went for a movie. She not only cut her beloved long hair short but also gained 20 pounds and muscles all over. Ah Jat instead had to lose weight to match her. He did not mind losing weight, but he lost 30 to 40 pounds. During meals, he and Kong Yeuk Lam's special meals would become strong contrast. He had to eat the diet meal while she had roast goose leg.
