The film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON last week opened with passionate word of mouth, landed in the top three on the single day box office and broke HK$ 2 million to become a rare Hong Kong film to break out the various Hollywood blockbuster in recent weeks; in a few short days it already surpassed its predecessor WONG KA YAN's box office performance, which greatly encouraged director Benny Lau Wai Heng. Earlier as he met "Housemaster Ting" Mark Lui Chung Tak for dinner, they suddenly went to a nearby cinema for a "surprise" audience appreciation event. Mark who has not appeared at a WHEN SUN MEETS MOON audience appreciation event was tempted. When the house lights went on, Benny and Mark suddenly appeared to surprise the audience and the entire audience gasped! Mark said, "When we suddenly appeared, we seemed to have awaken everyone from the audience's memory. Without any advanced sign, we sensed that everyone liked this film. As a part of the team I was very happy for Benny!" Maggie Siu Mei Kei and Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi)'s mother and daughter relationship touched a viewer deeply, and some praised Jackie Lui Chung Yin for being even more masculine than before. Benny immediately said to Mark, "Just at dinner now, wasn't I just in contact with Lui Chung Yin and saying that the audience praised how cool he was? See, I really didn't lie to him!" At this time, a lady in the front row loudly said, "I will tell his wife (Mak King Ting)!" The lady turned out to be Ng Lai Chu, who worked with Mak King Ting on ENJOY YOURSELF TONIGHT for years! She said that she definitely had to support sincere Hong Kong films. Benny could not thank his elder fast enough.
