Louis Koo Tin Lok named Natalie Tong Wing Sze to play his fiance in the film INFERNO (TOH CHOOK SUN TIN 3D) and were thus linked in rumors. He was Tong Wing Sze's idol. In the film they had a kiss in the rain after a disaster. It might look romantic but at the time the temperature was less than 10 degrees Celsius, they had to brave the chill in a shivering kiss.
That scene was shot in the Guangzhou commercial center. 15 fire engines, 60 fire fighters and over 100 extras were used with 50 onlookers. Although it looked like a reality show, they gave professional performance. Only the temperature dropped below ten degrees Celsius, with the flimsy costumes they were often shivering. However, seeing enthusiastic fans braving the rain to cheer them on, they finally completed this seemingly warm, touching, and passionate kiss scene that only they knew the pain of.
Tong Wing Sze breathed a sigh of relief. "I am already very nervous about working on a kiss scene with my idol. The climate is so cold too and the costume is flimsy, my teeth are still chattering." She also described it as a physical challenge. In this scene she and Koo Tin Lok were split up during the escape from the fire. She worried about Koo Tin Lok's safety. From morning to night her tears almost ran dry. With the rain scene going until early morning, she was already extremely exhausted; yet when she provided her voice work later, Tong Wing Sze was so moved that she cried in the recording studio.
Koo Tin Lok was suffered a little from being in the rain for 5 hours. "Earlier when we shot in Thailand, Lau Ching Wan had a very hard time with the heavy fire fighter gear and was envious of my flimsy costume. I never expect Guangzhou to be so cold. Even with ginger tea I am not warm enough. It is my turn to be envious of Ching Wan's heavy fire fighter gear."
