Philip Keung Ho Man gets lucky in his new film S FOR SEX S FOR SECRETS (SIU JEH YAU SUM) with passionate bed scenes with Jumbo Tsang Suk Nga, Jeana Ho Pui Yu and Jacquelin Chong Si Man, but Hak Jai said they were too much for him. In particular the bathroom gathering with Jumbo was both hot and stuffy, big guy Hak Jai got dizzy from the lack of oxygen.
Keung Ho Man in the new film S FOR SEX S FOR SECRETS played a sex addicted celebrity. As soon as his addiction acted up he had to take care of his needs no matter where he was. He was lucky enough to have passionate bed scenes with Tsang Suk Nga, Ho Pui Yu and Chong Si Man, but Hak Jai said that bed scenes were tougher than action films. He said that when he and Jeana were rocking the car their sweat came down like rain. He and Jumbo worked in the bathroom until he got dizzy from the lack of oxygen.
"At the time I heard the crew laughing outside, so bed scene productions truly aren't enjoyable. They are tougher than action films. However the film could bring out a message. If a couple could not get along, they need to find professional therapy and find the reason behind that to be able to resolve the problem." Did he need his wife's permission behind hand? He said that he told his wife, but he did not get jealous. Instead she thought his character was pretty interesting.
Started at aTV Hak Jai said that his former employer's salary payment delay made his heart ache. He felt that aTV was an organization with quite a history. If anything unexpected happened it would be a loss for Hong Kong. After almost two years away from aTV, as he developed better and better in the film industry did he feel that he left just in time? He said, "It's a timing issue. aTV couldn't give me what I wanted, in addition my development wasn't working out so I decided to leave. Yet television and film are two different work environments. When I was in aTV I made many movies too. The two types of audience had different layers, so it felt like I switched industries."
After years in the business and countless characters, Hak Jai said that he loved to play more human characters. Later he would like to play a doctor as he thought that doctors were cool and intelligent. However in his first film THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE BEAUTY (GWAI MA BO BIU CHAK MEI YUN) he played a doctor and even had scenes with Cherie Chung Chor Hung. "I still remember I had 27 bad takes. When I worked with Chung Chor Hung I also touched her face. It really was very memorable."
