As the producer, Wong Pak Ming thanked the actors for their contributions. "Everyone have given 100% effort. Lee Min-Ho has never made a fight scene but on the set he fought over ten people by himself. Chung Han Leung for the film became even more interested and fun, he contributed a lot of funny ideas. Tang Yan also went from not knowing how to fight to practicing hard to become very capable of fighting." Wong Pak Ming at the same time revealed that the film will open in Hong Kong on the 28th. Lee Min-Ho, Chung Han Leung, Tang Yan and others will coordinate to promote in Hong Kong.
