Joey Yung Cho Yi and Chapman To Man Jat starred in the film DIVA, which will be released this summer. In the film Joey played a music diva like herself, surrounded by manager To Man Jat, driver Wilfred Lau Ho Lung (Si Hing) and assistant Bonnie Xian (Sin Sik Lai); off screen Joey and Si Hing fell in love on the set and the film became the mark of their relationship. Joey avoided mentioning Si Hing throughout the process, but when she mentioned that she in order to get into her character used a lot of her own true feeling. "All of my heart break, upset, blossoming view on love are used in the film." Ah Jat joked, "I can tell you are blossoming!"
When Ah Jat was asked about Joey and Si Hing missing from the Guangzhou location shoot, Ah Jat said, "Our entire team indeed stayed in the same hotel, but I didn't pay any special attention to the two of them!" Joey added, "We knew each other originally, it's not all that mysterious." Joey again changed the subject and said that the film production in turn gained her friendship with Ah Jat. As for winning the love with Si Hing, Joey bashfully laughed and said, "Let's not talk about that!"
Speaking of the lack of Si Hing in the trailer, was Joey deliberately keeping a low profile? Producer Ah Jat explained that "The trailer was cut earlier, at the time I didn't know something like this would happen." However Ah Jat admitted that when considering the film promotion, he once thought about gaining attention with the "Lung Yi Romance". After further consideration he felt that it was not necessary, but he would not avoid Si Hing to promote.
Joey's past film box office has been average. She joked, "I can't lose this time because I have never won." Yet before the shoot she was worried for producer Ah Jat. "I asked him many times whether he was afraid of casting me, because when a producer failed there will be no next time. My acting was mediocre." Ah Jat instead had confidence. Earlier with Gillian Chung Yun Tung he achieved the best performance. He said, "The most important is the word of mouth. Joey is an amateur actress, her full time job is music diva. The most important is for viewers to feel her performance is good. This time she as the diva could use her real emotions, if she performed poorly she would get spanked. Yet this time she let go." Joey admitted that she gave her all in her performance. Aside from the kiss scene, she also had a back baring scene.
