Ann Hui On Wa at a Cable interview again thanked Andy Lau Tak Wa for providing his money and talent to A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH). His Golden Horse Best Actor award was "reward for his good deeds". "Roger isn't an award winning character but a light one. Only people who appreciate movies know Wa Jai's performance is great. If he wins another Best Actor, I would admire the jury's vision very much."
Some said that Wa Jai invested to repay her for giving him his start. Hui On Wa disagreed, "Back then I asked him to make the movie only because he was suitable for the character. He brought to life the young James Dean." She will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 6th Asian Film Awards, will she retire soon? Hui On Wa joked that she was not good with money so she could not retire yet. She also wanted to make a story about young people in school.
