Rumored couple Ava Yu Kiu and Adason Lo (Law Lik Wai)'s record companies struck down the relationship. Yu Kiu's boss Stephen Shiu Jr. even joked that he was a "two against six singer". Two nights ago Stephen Shiu Jr. Yu Kiu, Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau), Julian Cheung Chi Lam, Mandy Wong Chi Man and director Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum) attended the NATURAL BORN LOVERS (TIN SUN OI CHING KONG) celebration. Yu Kiu looked rather down and worn out. Stephen Shiu Jr. arrived later and they had zero communication. When they posed for photos they looked disoriented, obviously they had a gap between them. During the toast they perhaps deliberately were in two separate directions. Finally Stephen Shiu Jr. took the initiative and raised a glass to Yu Kiu, but privately they still had nothing to say.
Yu Kiu who was lacking a smile said that she read the report and stated that she and Law Lik Wai are good friends. However if the boss and the company thought that they invested resources on her but in the end still ended up in gossip, the boss should be disturbed and displeased. As for her opinion about "two against six", Yu Kiu still protected Law Lik Wai. "He of course isn't, if he is then I am 'two against seven or eight'? What the boss said when he was mad, I have no comment. (Have you talked with him?) Actually I don't like anyone call any of my friend that. (Yet Law Lik Wai was able to accept it!) I can't, it's like affecting others! (Have you contacted Law Lik Wai?) I apologized over text message, he replied that I couldn't keep it on my mind."
Yu Kiu admitted that the boss stated she had to choose between love and career. Of course she would choose work. She would see friends who her boss disliked less, but actually the choice she spoke of did not exist. Yu Kiu also said that she no longer dared to mention him. Was she worried their companies would engage in a war of words? Yu Kiu said that if they said she was "two against six" she could do nothing about that, but certain co-workers of Law Lik Wai's companies have been polite. Did she mean that her boss was impolite? Yu Kiu immediately said that her boss was direct, this time he was already being courteous. She again said that she did not cry over this. When asked if she did not end the relationship she would be suspended, Yu Kiu revealed that she just signed a new contract with the company and released a new record. Her work has not been affected. Later she will work with Donnie Yen Chi Tan on the film THE ICEMAN COMETH (BING FUNG HUP).
Stephen Shiu Jr. revealed that with cause came effect, but when asked what he was referring to he declined to discuss. He only said that he had a lot of reasons. He was a simple person, if no one bother him he would not bother anyone. Stephen Shiu Jr said, "His company and guys have done things, actually everyone is working hard on their own. Not interference with others is fine. Ultimately colleagues shouldn't fight each other. I am not just talking about one company specifically." Stephen Shiu Jr. said that he did not mind starting a war of words. He never supervised his artists' personal lives, but this time Yu Kiu truly was not as ambitious as before and her work was affected. He felt that it was due to outside influence and an ordinary friend was not worth destroying her future for. What if they were truly in love? Stephen Shiu Jr. took another jab and said, "I don't like such a fake person. If they are they are, if they aren't they aren't. Being indecisive would hurt the girl a lot. Of course she has to be responsible, but the guy has even greater responsibility and should carry the burden."
Sum Yau thought that over 300 million at the box office after a week in release was a good start. Earlier she went to Guangzhou, Shenzhen and others places to campaign and the response was decent. Did she run into anyone taking advantage? Sum Yau said, "Many big guys and metal barriers protected me, it was great. However Chilam was in a bit of danger. He was very popular with the girls, I had to protect him instead. I deserved to lose to him this time." Reporters also suggested celebrating with bikinis for box office success, Sum Yau immediately practiced Tai Chi and tossed it to Chilam and the director. She said that nowadays girls in bikinis or even fully naked were no longer innovative, instead naked men were more attractive. Chilam then said that he would not mind having a polar bear swimming contest with the director. Will he appear fully nude? He awkwardly said, "Let's not! (what about a Speedo!) Wow, when I go to England I have to lose weight and be a little thinner first."
