The film HELIOS (CHET DOH) broke 100 million after 3 days in release in the Mainland and successfully surpassed the gold label team of the previous Longman Leung Lok Man and Sunny Luk Kim Ching film COLD WAR (HONG JIN)'s 5 day record. After the Mainland box office success, good news came from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia as well. The film's box office rocketed past 10 million. "Professor" Jacky Cheung Hok Yau was excited about the performance to be proud of and admitted that this time all the scenes were very realistic. Thus he liked this film very much. He after spending months with Ji Jin-Hee and Choi Si-Won not only fought but also learned one line of Korean. He tightened his fist and powerfully said, "Him Nae Yo!" to cheer on the box office and the upcoming promotions.
Hok Yau and Choi Si-Won's theme song RED FEAT music video was officially unveiled on the official site. They performed in Cantonese and Korean. Although they recorded separately in different places, they were very in tune. Hok Yau said, "I recorded first, then I sent it to Korea for Si-Won to study. After he was done he sent it back. Although I don't understand Korean, I could feel his emotions. His singing was pretty solid!" They sang for real during the music video shoot. Hok Yau even shot some of it in his personal recording studio. He gave his all to his live performance and the production team benefited. Hok Yau said, "I am used to singing live, whether I have to or not I would sing. For the music video of course I have to sing seriously!" Hok Yau's studio not only had instruments but also a big book case with a variety of books. He said, "Actually the books really have a lot of uses. Some were used to be read, some were used for coasters. Actually the books in the studio mainly were used to absorb sound." He even recommended books for allergy treatment and parenting.
Hok Yau also revealed that Yee Chung Man tailored the "professor" look with facial hair for him in the film. He said, "Actually the director had an idea, but Chung Man and I felt that facial hair might be even more suitable. So I tried to not shave for two months. Real facial hair helped with getting into the character and made it even more realistic!" Hok Yau gave special thanks to Nick Cheung Ka Fai for constantly taking care of him on the set. He said, "Ka Fai took great care of me on the set. Although I am a little older than him, I have made less movies in the past decade or so. He was more familiar with the on set operations! If Ka Fai was willing to enter the recording studio, then it would be my turn to take care of him."
