The Johnnie To Kei Fung directed film DRUG WAR (DUK JIN) after a week in release in the Mainland made over 100 million yuan RMB and a new personal box office record for him; however he was not satisfied yet as he continued to bring actors Huang Yi and Wallace Chung Hong Leung to Zhengzhou and personally promoted. The actors received an enthusiastic welcome from hundreds of crazed fans. Chung Hong Leung's cop with facial hair look in the film surprised many viewers.
Godfrey Gao in the film was shot while saving Huang Yi and their relationship was ambiguous. Godfrey Gao said, "I took a shot for Huang Yi, maybe the director had his own idea." He seemingly hinted at another new collaboration with To Kei Fung. To Kei Fung praised Godfrey Gao's performance and regretted that many exciting scenes had to be cut. He promised to save suitable characters for him in the future.
