Ivana Wong Yuen Chi yesterday attended the TVB program BIG BOYS CLUB taping with Edmond Tong Chun Yip and producer Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum) to promote their September 3rd new film release LOVE DETECTIVE (MOOT NUI SUN TAM). Ivana said that she was very nervous because she had an acting teacher Tong Chun Yip and the producer next to her.
Yip Lim Sum praised Ivana to be a good actor, finally he saw her succeed and star in a lead. Her acting also has drastically improved as she brought the audience joy. "As soon as you see her you would feel she is very funny, as soon as she opens her mouth she is incredible!" Tong Chun Yip said that he watched Ivana grow up and become talented and he was very happy. Ivana said that this time she was the happiest about playing a couple with Tong Chun Yip because his acting was great. When she worked until 4AM and cried herself out of tears after ten takes, he was still able to motivate her into her character and make her cry. Did they have any intimate scene? Tong Chun Yip said, "Behind camera we are very intimate." Ivana said that his character hurt her and left her with nothing. Thus they had no intimate scene. Yet she and Pakho Chau had a kiss scene. Yip Lim Sum joked, "Because Ivana gave me 500 bucks and Pakho gave me 1000!"
As a singer Ivana admitted that she was still new to acting, so she needed a safety net. Tong Chun Yip was one of her safety nets. Yip Lim Sum also said that this time he made many safety nets for her, like getting Ram Chiang Chi Kwong and Bob Lam Sing Bun to participate so she could relax in her performance. He was also very pleased with her performance.
