Eddie Cheung Siu Fai earlier with his new film TWILIGHT ONLINE (HUNG BO JOI SIN) won two Best Actor awards. In the film Cheung Siu Fai played a cop who frequently came in contact with the supernatural. In order to experience the victim's moment before death, he lay inside a wooden box then covered himself with dirt. Cheung Siu Fai recalled the shoot. "The director demanded for the wooden box to be closed air tight, then covering it with dirty so I couldn't move. I felt very stressed while laying in it. The worst part was the box had gaps, dirty kept seeping inside the box. My eyes and mouth were filled with dirt, but actually this was not the most difficult part. During the close up shot the dirt went directly on my face. However the result this time was decent and was even worth eating sand for."
Babyjohn Choi Hong Yik also praised Brother Fai's professionalism, which made him feel the professionalism that was required for the shoot. Babyjohn said that the room had no air conditioning during the shoot and was air tight. At the time the dirty kept falling onto the wooden box. When he delivered his dialogues he kept eating dirt. The most shocking was Brother Fai already took a shower after being covered in sand. Yet when he watched the playback he asked for another take, which made he feel how professional he was and encouraged him to bring a professional heart to the shoot.
