Having worked with Sandra Ng Kwan Yu and vivian Chow Wai man on television, Eddie Cheung Siu Fai in recent years has made the jump to the big screen and worked on an Ann Hui On Wa directed film for the first time. Aside from working with these two beauties again, the
largest breakthrough was his first big screen kiss.

About his kiss scene with Kwan Yu, Cheung Siu Fai said that he did not smoke or have any garlic before hand. He did not make any preparation before the shoot could get chewing gum. Because the kiss scene was shot two or three days into the production and he has not seen Kwan Yu in
years, they were between being familiar and strangers so it was somewhat awkward. However both were good actors. Under the director's order they were able to get into character right away. Cheung Siu Fai said, "After the first take everyone was very satisfied, but the director suggested a few more tries for comparison. Finally we did three takes and still chose the first take. Because during the first take no one was certain about the other would actually do, it was the most natural."

About working with Hui On Wa this time, Cheung Siu Fai said that she extremely trusted her cast and was very satisfied with everyone's performance. Sometimes he would become suspicious. At the same time the team would chat and laugh off camera, making the entire production was relaxed. He said, "This time everyone really improvised so we didn't need to hold back our laughter. Instead we had some flubs, like during the shoot some props were ruined."
