The Chen Kuo-Fu produced, Wuershan directed PAINTED SKIN: THE RESURRECTION (WAT PEI II) earlier held a Beijing press conference to officially announce the film's summer release. Leads Chen Kun, Feng Shaofeng, Mini Yang Mi, Chen Ting-Chia attended the event and introduced seven mysterious posters.
The posters of the two female leads Zhou Xun and Vicki Zhao Wei were cold blue ice and water based. Zhou Xun's "Xiao Wei" bared her shoulder with cold beauty while Zhao Wei's "Princess Jing" coolly covered her face with a golden mask. Chen Kun's "Huo Xin" with a short sword and sharp eyes was raging with masculine fire.
Zhou Xun, Zhao Wei and Chen Kun reunited four years after. What kind of story did they perform? Chen Kun performed tai chi when he discussed his character, saying "Huo Xin" could either be a demon or a human. As for the relationship between the two heavyweight female stars he said that the posters already clearly stated everything. In the film he was like fire, Zhou Xun was cold and distant like ice and Zhao Wei was completely clear as water. Fire, ice and water originally could not be together but in the end they all melted into one.
PAINTED SKIN: THE RESURRECTION was also the first film that Feng Shaofeng and Yang Mi worked together on. Feng Shaofeng said that he was a "demon catcher with very little ability and has never seen a real demon." Yang Mi humorously said that she played a "bird person" but being able to pick on the demon catcher was a benefit. As for their relationship Yang Mi pointed out that their relationship between human and demon exceeded nature.
