He expressed that recently he has been with his new film CHEUNG WONG JI WONG (GUN KING OF KINGS), which will have a similar team as OVERHEARD. He was very happy about being able to work together again. Goo Jai pointed out that this year he made more comedy because of the financial tsunami. He wanted everyone to be a little happier. Will ON have a sequel? He pointed out that Wong Jing has plans for a movie with even greater space for development and he will have a chance to work with Big S again. As for the Taiwan flood, Goo Jai pointed out that Wenzhou was affected as well. He through some channels has donated money.

Big S was very pleased with her first comedy performance. As for Wong Jing casting her with Nick Cheung Ka Fai and Nicholas Tse Ting Fung in a film, she honestly said that she would like to work with them as well. Even if she had to fight she would not mind. Speaking of the Taiwan flood, Big S expressed that she and her sister were very concerned about the disaster because it was a community matter. She expressed that her brother-in-law's sister worked at a charity group and she and her sister had their own foundation so they would try to help. She was lucky that she had no friend or family in Tainan. For now she did not know whether the Taiwan Performing Artist Association will start fund raising event. If so she definitely will support it.

In addition, Wong Jing revealed that this year he will make four films, like the Big S, Cheung Ka Fai and Tse Ting Fung starred comedy action comedy CHOI SUN HAT JANG (FORTUNE GOD INN) and the Sandra Ng Kwan Yu and Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin starred MEI LAI MUK LING (BEAUTY SECRET ORDER). Did Kwan Yu get a raise? Wong Jing said that of course she needed to and joked that everyone wanted money. As for ON's box office had a chance to beat OVERHEARD, Wong Jing honestly said that he was encouraged. He expected that after two more weeks in release in the Mainland the box office will exceed 100 million. He felt that if every Hong Kong film did well that would be the best. Who won or lost was unimportant.
