Huang Xiaoming recently has been busy with the John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) directed new film THE CROSSING (TAI PING LUN). The film also starred Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo), Zhang Ziyi, Song Hye-Kyo, Masami Nagasawa. Xiaoming and Song Hye-Kyo had many scenes together. Song Hye-Song has been practicing her Putonghua in order to set off sparks with Xiaoming.
Xiaoming at the end of 2012 fell from 3 meters during wire work on his film WHITE HAIRED WTICH OF THE LUNAR KINGDOM (BAK FAT MOR NUI JUEN ji MING YUET TIN GOK) and shattering two left toes. In the end he had to have a surgery to put in six metal pins into his left foot. Although the accident left him shaken from dangerous stunts, he did not watch himself while working on THE CROSSING. Despite the team's suggestions for a double in the film's dangerous explosion scenes, Xiaoming chose to personally perform them. After the explosion his expression remained unchanged. His manager said, "Although he had an accident before, he wanted the shoot to be more professional so he did the stunts himself."
