Justin Cheung Kin Sing promoted his new film IMPRISONED: SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR RICH AND PRODIGAL (YUT YUK YUT SAI GAI). Two days ago he demonstrated the "prisoner" life in a special mobile "solitary confinement cell" for the public and experienced 72 hours of prison life.
As of 4PM yesterday he has already been "in prison" for 26 hours. He complained to the live broadcast camera. "People would really go mad from being locked up. I am a little better since I have something to look at. If it was for real, I would have gone mad after 20 hours and collapsed. Last night I couldn't really sleep. Today has been very iffy, it's truly hard to describe." Many have been following Cheung Kin Sing online. When the live feed was cut off for "yard time", viewers online screamed "jail break".
His co-workers Jacquelin Chong Si Man, Lydia Tong Bui Sze and boss Stephen Shiu Jr. yesterday afternoon visited. Cheung Kin Sing regained a little alertness when he saw familiar faces. He even complained about "prison" like a "prisoner" during a visit. "It's very tough, first time drags on, secondly many neighbors are friendly, but without any wall I felt like I was sleeping on the street and it was very unnatural. The most terrifying was sleeping, when I woke I would be on the street. I couldn't be more scared. After I get out I will live my life properly." Chong Si Man's birthday was on May 1. The film company prepared a birthday cake for Cheung Kin Sing to celebrate her belated birthday. Chong Si Man said how down he looked said, "It's very helpless to be here alone, if it was me I would have already gone made after 15 minutes because it didn't have a phone. In today's world the worst is to be without a phone." Cheung Kin Sing looked out of it and pacing back and forth at last check.
After Cheung Kin Sing's "prison release" tomorrow, the film company will arrange for online participants to take over. The event set prizes as high as HK$ 20,000. Over 700 people have already applied.
