The host joked that Ching Wan's whip was two meter long, Ching Wan joked, "It's a known secret, the whip is even hotter!" He also pointed out that when using the long whip he hit himself the most.

Eddie was also a recognized hunk, Big Brother joked that he was more handsome than him 30 years ago.
Later the three actors were interviewed. Ching Wan said that before the shoot he spent three or four days to practice, but during practice he did not use a metal whip but a softer one. However he still left one mark after another all over his body, if he used a real whip he believed that he would have been "busted open". Did he use a whip to hit Goo Jai? He said, "I didn't have a chance to hit Goo Jai, if I hit him I would be dead!"
