The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed, Jelly Lin Yun starred MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) broke many Mainland box office records since its release. Aside from opening day and single day box office records, MERMAIDS after 12 days in release made 2.44 billion RMB to become the Mainland box office champion. As of yesterday in 19 days it broke 3 billion RMB and set a new Mainland box office record to become the first film to have 3 billion at the box office. Deng Chao supported Lin Yun that this first film was not easy for her. She had to get into the water in the winter and even "cried many times due to the cold"!
