The Sammi Cheng Sau Man and Louis Koo Tin Lok starred ROMANCING IN THIN AIR (GO HOI BUT JI LUEN II) will premiere tonight and be officially released on February 9. Yesterday Sammi and director Johnnie To Kei Fung and Wai Ka Fai conducted a Mainland media interview. Speaking of marriage, Sammi admitted that for now she had no wedding plan and said that she has already passed the age when she would panic about marriage. She also said that during the shoot although being in high altitude was very tough, her boyfriend Andy Hui Chi On kept encouraging her.
Sammi, To Sir and Wai Ka Fai accepted the interview. In the film Sammi was more sensible about love. Was she the same way in reality? She said, "Very sensible? Actually he and I in not so public places would be like an average couple. If I need his opinion we would very sensibly chat." She also said that now she would not throw tantrums, perhaps because she was out of temper. She said, "The Lord absolutely wouldn't let me explode, which is an enormous change since my depression. He benefits a lot from that." Has her elders rushed her to marry? She said, "So far I don't have any plan, maybe the Hong Kong media are more anxious for me at my age, but I have already passed the age of panic. I have already gone from very anxious to not anxious. My family is rather relaxed because at least I am dating." She also joked that she was thick skinned so in the Lunar New Year she still accepted red pockets.
On Valentine's Day will she watch this movie with On Jai? She said that she would not be in Hong Kong then, he might go with his friends! However during the shoot she kept sharing her thoughts with him. Two nights ago after the screening she shared with him as well. He always encouraged her, telling her not to be too stressed and not to carry all the burden. Thus now she could be more relaxed with the result. Sammi also revealed that after completing two weeks of promotion she will fulfill a dream of charity. Last year she went to teach English in the Yunnan mountain region elementary school with two friends, which she thought was very meaningful and missed such visits. This year she will go elsewhere but this time she will not teach. Speaking of her good friend Andy Lau Tak Wa's impending fatherhood, she said, "I sent him a text message to congratulate him because this is his dream. After spending so much time on his show business career and art, now it is the time to truly enjoy life. I believe his daughter will definitely be very beautiful."
In addition, Wai Ka Fai and To Kei Fung have worked together on many classic romantic films. They felt that they made too many city films before so this time they deliberately went far away from the city. Wai Ka Fai said that during the shoot he was worried. Because of the high altitude, during location scouting he had quite a headache. The location was very pretty though, so after returning he and To Sir still decided to shoot in Yunnan. To Sir even praised Sammi's performance. He said, "I am very satisfied with her performance. She is more mature than before, her acting is much better too."
