Director Jeff Lau Chun Wai, actors Gillian Chung Yun Tung, Alex Fong Lik Sun yesterday attended FANTASTIC WATER BABES (CHOOK SHUI FU YUNG) premiere press conference in Beijing. Although this was the seventh day on their promotional tour, they were still full of energy and showed no sign of exhaustion. Ah Gil and Siu Fong had 200 fans who came in support and even booked a cinema to support them. Siu Fong's parents also came to Beijing to support him. His father bought 125 tickets in support.

When the press conference began, Ah Gil and Siu Fong appeared hand in hand like a couple and called each other "Sister Gil" and "Brother Siu Fong". Siu Fong joked, "I am very honored to be able to work with a big star (Ah Gil)." Lau Chun Wai honestly said that back then he wanted to match Ah Gil and Siu Fong through this film. Because too many people said that actors of his films always ended up breaking up, he really wanted to break this curse. He also revealed that their performance had a special chemistry that the average actor could not achieve, in particular their eyes. He said, "This look, I saw once a long time ago, when (Stephen) Chow Sing Chi and (Athena) Chu Yun made A CHINESE ODYSSEY (SAI YAU GEI)."

When the director played expose, Ah Gil and Siu Fong just kept chuckling. A reporter asked whether Ah Gil and Siu Fong had any special feeling while making this film. Ah Gil joked, "I am a professional actor, during the shoot when I faced Siu Fong of course I had feelings." Reportedly Siu Fong after his scene was reluctant to leave the set. Siu Fong explained that because the set was very pleasant and very enjoyable. He was the happiest when Ah Gil did not have any bad take, they could quickly finish the day. FANTASTIC will be released on the same day as Chow Sing Chi's CJ7 LOVES THE EARTH in the Mainland, but Lau Chun Wai was not worried about the box office because they have already done their best with the promotion. After that the decision would lie with the audience.
