Japanese model Linah Matsuoka and Justin Cheung Kin Sing yesterday attended their film DECEPTION OF THE NOVELIST (JOK GA DIK FONG YIN) at the Book Fair. In the poster, Cheung Kin Sing tightly embraced Jeana Ho Pui Yu while the almost naked Matsuoka hug Cheung Kin Sing from behind. During the photo opportunity, Cheung Kin Sing held Matsuoka by the waist without any fear of gossip.
Cheung Kin Sing was asked if he had any stress when he worked on the poster. "No stress. Because we have been with each other for an entire month already during the shoot, we had no stress or gap." Was Matsuoka topless? She said, "Kind of!" Cheung Kin Sing said that the shoot with Jeana was not awkward because they have worked together many times already. Matsuoka was very professional and put a lot of effort into learning Cantonese. Because the entire film would use original sound and not dubbing, she would speak Cantonese in the entire film. Love scenes in the film took some time to rehearse, all three had great chemistry. Everyone said that Cheung Kin Sing was very lucky in the film. He joked, "Yours truly has always been lucky over the years. It may look very happy in the audience's eyes but actually it is pretty rough. We constantly had to switch positions to avoid any mistake. The most extreme was already done in DUE WEST: OUR SEXY JOURNEY (YUT LO HEUNG SAI), this time isn't in the same vein as DUE. It is a horror suspense, which is a rare genre in Hong Kong."
Matsuoka said that she enjoyed the production process very much. In addition it was the first time that she performed in all Cantonese, she wanted to thank Cheung Kin Sing for his translation help. As for how she would thank him, Matsuoka smartly said, "I would give my photo book to him, for now I don't have any sales figure yet." Cheung Kin Sing has not seen Matsuoka's photo book yet. After asking for an autograph later he would go home and take his time with it.
