Emperor Motion Picture THE MOON THIEVES (DOH YUET JEH)'s director Steve Yuen Kim Wai two days ago led actors Louis Cheung Kai Chung, guy group MIRROR's Edan Lui Cheuk On and Anson Lo Hon Ting, Michael Ning (Bak Ji) and Ray So Chun Wai to attend the film's audience appreciation events. Rich in stage performance experience, Ray So Chun Wai participated in audience appreciation for the first time. In the film he played the undercover "Tung Tung" role, which has won many viewers' praises.
So Chun Wai said that he did not have a lot of film experience, during he shoot he was very nervous. He needed the director's reminders on continuity, and he felt that the make up in the film helped a lot. When asked as a stage actor, after his first film has his interest grown? So Chun Wai said, "Making movies is different from plays, I am absolutely interested. I hope in the future I would have the opportunity to make movies again."
Edan pointed out that Bak Ji once said that a play would perform in order, while a film shoot would jump around. Thus when the production began he had to be mentally ready. A viewer asked other actors if they had the confidence to play the role of "Tung Tung"? Cheung Kai Chung pointed out that this character was very hard to play. Because the general public had an existing image of older actors, so it would be very hard to play an extremely challenging character. Edan agreed. "Because you are too familiar with us, when you see us do this stuff you would feel we are very pretentious. So he (So Chun Wai) did really great playing 'Tung Tung'." Anson Lo pointed out that he could give it a try if given the opportunity, but doing better would be very hard because the world only had one "Tung Tung". Cheung Kai Chung joked that if he wanted a challenge, he could play cute.
As the event neared its end, the actors took a group photo with the entire audience. The whole crowd screamed their wish for THE MOON THIEVES' box office to approach HK$ 30 million.
THE MOON THIEVES currently has exceeded HK$ 25 million at the box office and headed toward HK$ 30 million. Everyone in coordination with Edan's promise to show "August 15th" when the box office would reach HK$ 40 million yelled the slogan, "THE MOON THIEVES approaches 30 million box office, continue to snipe 'August 15th'."
