Michael Ning (Bak Ji) and Cherry Ngan Cheuk Ling last night promoted their new film ZOMBIOLOGY: ENJOY YOURSELF TONIGHT (GUM MAN DA SONG SI) as a couple with Carrie Ng Ka Lai, Venus Wong Man Yik and others. Bak Ji said that work was work and they were not on a date. Did their relationship change? Bak Ji clarified that it did not, as he stressed that work and relationship were separate. Would they work on another film as a couple? Bak Ji said, "This time at work we were very happy, but she and I had very few scenes together. If we acted together I would be afraid that I would be distracted." Ngan Cheuk Ling said that after their relationship went public their workload did not increase. She even suggested for everyone to help them with creating more opportunities.
Rarely used zombies as a subject, this Hong Kong film inevitably would be compared to the earlier Korean hit TRAIN TO BUSAN. Bak Ji admitted that he was confident about the box office because Hong Kong people liked domestic production and loved zombie films. One of the leads Louis Cheung Kai Chung joked that the box office duty was left to Bak Ji. He said, "I have no comment. I don't believe anything that I don't hear it with my own ears. Actually actors don't think much about the box office during the shoot, as long as the audience likes it then it's fine."
Ng Ka Lai hoped that the film would be able to continue the success of previous commercial and critical Hong Kong film hits. She believed that the audience also liked to hear Cantonese as it would not have a hard time from following the subtitles.
