The Gillian Chung Yun Tung, Ling Man Lung, Candy Yu On On, Josephine Koo Mei Wa, Kao Hon Man and JJ Jia starred film MISSING (SUK JUNG) recently announced that it has been selected for the 2019 Chinese American Film Festival.
Yu On On was excited to hear the good news. She explained that this time the film shot mostly on the hills. Although she did not need to hike for the shoot, a few emotional scenes remained memorable. Sister On On and Ah Gil played mother and daughter. Kao Hon Man went missing on a hike seven years ago. Sister On in order for her daughter to return to a normal life gave up on finding him long ago, but Ah Gil still believed that her father was alive. Mother and daughter thus constantly argued and fought. Sister On On said, "We have to fight all thee time, after each shoot we would watch the playback to see if we need to improve anything." She also pointed out that in the film she projected how much she missed her father onto the next room, which was filled with her husband's items. In one scene she was on the edge of collapse, the director wanted one take to the end so the set was cleared for her to cultivate her emotions. In the end she was able to finish the take in one shot. They only did another take to accommodate the camera in the narrow space. The director accepted the take right away and praised Sister On On for her acting!
