Justin Cheung Kin Sing yesterday publicized his "prison cell" to demonstrate "prison term" for three days to promote his new film IMPRISONED: SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR RICH AND PRODIGAL (YUT YUK YUT SAI GAI). The film company in order to promote the film recruited "prisoners". Anyone who was interested could through the film company and the film's facebook page posted the reason why they liked IMPRISONED. The selected participants could experience "prison" as well. Anyone who successfully stayed for 168 hours (7 days) could win HK$ 20,000, 72 hours (3 days) could win HK$ 8,000. The event will last for a month until the end of May. Yesterday as of the dead line last night over 400 people have left messages, most were even women.
The film company said that participants must live inside a "mobile solitary confinement cell", every time they would receive a hour of "yard" time, half a hour to bathe in the public bathroom and 3 meals a day. The film company boss Stephen Shiu Jr. said that the meals will follow the Correctional Services Department's "cell" meals. The "mobile cell" will traverse through the busy streets like Mongkok and Causeway Bay. People could through the "cell's" glass wall and online see the participants every move. At night the "mobile cell" will be parked at a location overnight.
Cheung Kin Sing starting yesterday at 2PM will be "imprisoned" until May 4 at 2PM as a public demonstration. Yesterday he in the company to Gregory Wong Chung Hiu, Wong Kwong Leung, Chiu Wing Hung, Ashina Kwok Yik Yui and others was "imprisoned". Before hand Wong Kwong Leung cut Cheung Kin Sing's hair and then presented a floral arrangement. Cheung Kin Sing after joking said, "You Xs" officially entered his "cell". Through live broadcast, last night he was seen reading and sleeping. He also went to the bathroom in the company of "prison guards" (workers).
Cheung Kin Sing said that he worried the most about not being able to work out. "I can only do push ups and sit ups. (No more privacy?) This is pretty interesting, such a chance is rare in life. It is considered an alternative experience. Hong Kong people now are so enraged, I might as well let people have a laugh and relax a little." As for his foul language use when his co-stars presented a floral arrangement, he said, "They all just had a 'hero banquet' with me, they are really bad." Wong Kwong Leung said, "Is X foul language? I was holding back a lot when I cut his hair, I didn't cut it down to the skin." Ashina said that she was not worried about co-stars taking advantage of her and that she has already taken precautions against wardrobe malfunction. Unfortunately when she sat down in the "cell" her red underwear was showing.
In addition Stephen Shiu Jr praised Cheung Kin Sing professional, "He is very obedient, very hard working. For the film he was willing to stay in the cell for three days, I really had to thank him. He went from car sales to professional actor. I hope he would maintain this spirit, he definitely will become a superstar and truly become the young (Alex) Man Chi Leung."
New generation god Wong Chung Hiu yesterday personally sent his friend Cheung Kin Sing into "prison". He jokingly expressed sympathy for his friend on losing three days of freedom, but promised that he would take time to "visit him in prison". Speaking of his passionate bed scene with Ashina who forgot the shape of his rear, he jokingly asked her to go to the movies and see it again. Did the scene feel awkward? He said that the level of nudity was already his limit. "It wasn't awkward, I was so covered up that I couldn't cover up anymore!"
