Cable Entertainment News channel produced a special about Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing and shared Gor Gor's life as well as some never before seen videos and Teresa Mo Shun Kwan's interview of Cheung Kwok Wing to talk about his view on film productions and his film dream. Gor Gor admitted that he felt Hong Kong film was less than well rounded. "Hong Kong filmmakers' thinking is too conventional, often they flock to make romance, comedy, mob and other subject films. If I have to pay 50 or 60 bucks to watch a movie, why wouldn't I watch a foreign film?"
Mo Mo mentioned that Hong Kong production budget was very low but actor salary remained high. Gor Gor said that his salary was not considered high and revealed that he made a movie for a symbolic dollar. "When Hong Kong economy and film market were at their lowest, I tried to be the pioneer and make a movie without any salary. At the time many Hong Kong Film Award winning famous directors formed a creative alliance together in hopes of making some good movies." However, he said that the creative alliance was not united. "I thought they were selfish, finally they each made their own movies and rushed through them. The results were not as beneficial as expected." He was still enthusiastic about making movies, but later if someone else asked him to make a movie for no salary, he definitely had to have a good script and sincerity to move him. He also admitted that he wanted to win an award, "I don't believe that Cheung Kwok Wing can't win a Grammy award? Maybe one day I will win an foreign actor award."
