The 21st Busan International Film Festival earlier opened officially. 301 films from 69 nations and regions would participate in this event. The Emperor Motion Pictures and Malaysia's Sonneratia Capital invested action film MRS. K, its stars Kara Wai Ying Hung, director Ho Yuhang and producer Lorna Tee (Cheng Pik Suet) were invited to attend. Two nights ago at the film screening, Wai Ying Hung announced to the 900 viewers on hand, "This is my last action film!"
Ho Yuhang directed, Lorna Tee produced, Wai Ying Hung, Simon Yam Tat Wa and Taiwan singer Wu Bai starred in the film MRS. K. During the Busan Film Festival, two screenings would be held. The venue had 900 tickets, all of which vanished within 15 minutes online. Actually Wai Ying Hung had many action films that were screened there and received high praises; lead actor Yam Tat Wa has worked with Gianna Jun on THE THIEVES, so he also had a lot of fans in Korea. No wonder the tickets were gone so quickly!
Wai Ying Hung, director Ho Yuhang and producer Lorna Tee promoted nonstop there. They not only appeared on the red carpet but also at the two screenings and many media interviews.
At the screening two nights ago, Wai Ying Hung, director Ho Yuhang and producer Lorna Tee met with 900 viewers. The response was overwhelming. A Hong Kong viewer flew to Busan for a first glimpse at Sister Hung's performance. Ho Yuhang said that he reunited with Wai Ying Hung after AT THE END OF DAYBREAK (SUM MOR). "Sister Hung was the top female action star at the Shaw Brothers golden age. This time we made MRS. K in order to find 'action actress wai Ying Hung'. I hope everyone would enjoy watching it!"
Rarely making action films in recent years, Wai Ying Hung brought a surprising decision with her. "Due to age, I hope this will be my final action film." For this character, Wai Ying Hung trained in Malaysia before the shoot and performed all of her own stunts in the film. Although she injured her leg and hip, she did not want to give the audience an impression of "being cheated". In the end she still grind her teeth and endured. Later Wai Ying Hung revealed her plans further. "If I don't make any more action films, I want to make more drama, heart warming small budget films like HAPPINESS (HUNG WON SI NGOR). I will retire at age 60 then focus on painting."
