The film FULL STRIKE (CHUEN LIK KAU SAT) yesterday held a special advanced screening, the actors Josie Ho Chiu Yi, Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Ronald Cheng Chung Kei, Andrew Lam Man Chung, Susan Shaw Yam Yam and director Derek Kwok Chi Kin went to the cinema for audience appreciation. During the period Sister Yam Yam and Ah Chung hilariously broke into foul language and everyone cracked up.
Ekin and Chiu Yi spoke to the press together. Yesterday a columnist praised the film as fully fleshed out, a companion to THE WAY WE DANCE (KONG MO PAI) but even better, they both agreed and said that this film depicted the Hong Kong spirit with a comedy film package. Speaking of Sister Yam Yam and Ah Chung's frequent foul language outbursts, Ekin said that the film did not have any. At most it used was adjective. He also revealed that Ah Chung took away all the free tickets from everyone, because this was his comeback film many friends wanted to support him. Ekin admitted that he planned to book a show for his friends later. If the film had good response, he even suggested to celebrate at a street stall. He explained, "Street stall matches the film style more, but it doesn't have air conditioning. I hope the media wouldn't mind during coverage." Chiu Yi joked that they could wear less then, but they would not be as exaggerated as wearing swimsuits.
This time the film subject was badminton. Ekin loved this sport and even connected with his wife through the sport. Did the shoot bring back any memory for him? He clarified, "Actually I knew her first, then we played. I don't understand how people caught us back then."
