The John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) directed romance THE CROSSING I (TAI PING LUN) two days ago held its press conference in Shanghai. He explained how he chose the more compatible coupling for the three kings and the three queens. With Song Hye-Kyo for example, he put other actors' photos next to hers to see which one was the most suitable, the best looking. However Ng Yu Sum admitted that often casting was based on inspiration.
Song Hye-Kyo was asked in real life would she choose Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo) or Huang Xiaoming for a boyfriend? She said that both were extraordinarily charming. She was greedy too and hoped to choose both. Gum Sing Mo was asked about his mysterious whereabouts in the past 3 years, he explained that it was only because he made less movies lately. As long as he ran into a good chance he would try it, he never planned on how many movies to make. Thus everyone felt he was more mysterious.
