The Vonnie Lui Hoi Yan and Hiro Hayama (Yip San Ho) starred 3D SEX AND ZEN: EXTREME ECSTASY (3D YUK PO TUEN ji GIK LOK BO GAM) will soon be released. Lui Hoi Yan for the film went on a diet to lose weight, stopped going out at night and drinking, but she did not lose a single pound in a week. She said, "Maybe I was nervous, the more I wanted to lose weight the more I couldn't. The more I couldn't the more I didn't dare to eat. On the second day of the production, I didn't eat after being on the set for 24 hours. When I heard others eat I wanted to vomit." Yip Ho San said, "I was very worried about her. She not only didn't eat but also didn't make a sound. She hid in the bathroom and cried." Lui Hoi Yan said that later she went to the doctor, who said that she had minor depression. Luckily she caught it in time.

Did they fall in love after such a long time together? Lui Hoi Yan said no, but they became the best of friends and talked about everything and anything. Yip San Ho also praised that Lui Hoi Yan as attentive, a good cook who often cooked for them, like drunken chicken, Korean rice cake, and cake. He said, "She absolutely is suitable for marriage, she definitely will be a good wife." As for why he did not pursue her, Yip San Ho joked that because her chest was too big. Actually he is already married, his wife is Japanese and lives in Japan.

Did his wife object to him making category III film? Yip San Ho said, "I made this movie because of what my wife said. Without her support I wouldn't be able to let it go." What did his wife say to him? he said, "Since you have never been naked before you should get naked." He not only let go with his body but also his personality. He used to be shy and was poor at communication with others. After making this film and meeting the happy Lui Hoi Yan, he became more talkative and humorous.

In memory of Japan earthquake, "Love without border 311 candle light evening" will take place tonight in the Victoria Park. Hosts Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Carol Cheng Yui Ling, Sylvia Chang (Cheung Ngai Ga) and Alice Chan Mei Ling yesterday rehearsed. Chan's Japanese husband also came to support his wife.

Chi Wai said that the event will take at 7:05PM and last 3 hours. The venue has memorial areas where people can place cards. At the same time the event also set up 150 donation pledge lines, 10 of which would be in Japanese for the Japanese people who reside in Hong Kont to donate. The numbers would be 1833288 (Cantonese) and 1833123 (Japanese).

Do Do suggested for attendees to bring their own blankets, water and such because the venue would not set up seating. Chi Wai also urged attendees to bring bags to clean up after themselves with and keep the venue tidy. Confirmed artists included Joey Yung Cho Yi, Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Andy Lau Tak Wa, George Lam Chi Cheung, Alan Tam Wing Lun and Wynners, Korea's Kwon Sang-Woo also agreed to attend. Taiwan artists would include Sky Wu (Ng Si Hoi) and Jon Lee Chung Sing. Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Kelly Chen Wai Lam, Ken Watanabe, Masahiko Kondo, and Nina Ricci also prepared video call for pledges.

According to Jackie Chan, Chi Wai and Andrew Lau Wai Keung argued over the theme song recording. Chi Wai said, "It was nothing special, everyone had an opinion before and after the arrangement. Everyone just wanted to do what was good for the event." Was artist assignment
difficult? He said, "The most important was everyone was comfortable, if they could come they could participate. We couldn't hold anyone up. The Hong Kong artists were great, they didn't mind what they sang." Chen Wai Lam who just suffered a miscarriage supported the event with a video recording. Chi Wai said, "Kelly was always willing to do the video, always wanting to participate. She wouldn't come because she didn't want the goal to change, she wanted everyone to think of the victims." The theme song SUCCUMB NOT TO PAIN was accused of copying a Korean song. Chi Wai said it was impossible. "The song was based on a poem, it was very hard to find a song that matched the poem. Tang Chi Wai didn't sleep or rest and worked for a day and a half without sleep. Such accusation was very unfair to him."

Chan Mei Ling was very concerned with the nuclear crisis after the Japan earthquake. She said, "It's very serious, so far nothing has improved. If all goes well it will take several months to repair. It may take several years." She worried the most about the Japanese people who lived near the nuclear power plant. "I don't know what to do, not only did they have earthquake and tsunami, the situation was very severe." Would Chi Wai send any artists to shoot videos at the disaster area? He said, "I don't plan to just yet. I have to keep artist and safety issues in mind. Now it's inconvenient to go." Chan Mei Ling agreed, "Now the disaster area remained very intense. If too many people went they would cause traffic problems. The disaster area's food and water remained lacking."

At the event show business would have no differences and no borders to cheer for the Japanese people and at the same time urged the people of Hong Kong to donate and help the Japanese disaster victims. All the donations after expenses will be donated to the international charity group Salvation Army.

Many electronic media including TVB, ATV, and now Hong Kong will broadcast the event live. TVB even arranged for broadcast over four channels. However ATV will only broadcast it on its High Definition channel while the Hong Kong station will continue its usual schedule. According to ATV, they did so only because the pictures would be clearer and keeping different types of viewers in mind.

In addition, TVB's SCOOP and special program THE JADE AND THE PEARL was fined over HK$160,000 for indirectly promoting the film THE JADE AND THE PEARL. The 72 TENANTS OF PROSPERITY (72 GA JO HAT) promotional program was also fined as well. TVB expressed deep regret over the two fines. TVB's Tsang Sing Ming said although the Broadcast Authority had procedure for TVB to complain to the Chief Executive and the Legislative Council about the verdict, the procedure was complex and required a lot of resources. Thus it could only helplessly accept the verdict, but it asked the Broadcast Authority to strength communication to keep similar situations from appearing again.

Hong Kong's fund raiser for Japan earthquake disaster victims, LOVE BEYOND BORDER, will take place tonight at Victoria Park. Jackie Chan yesterday appeared on a Commercial Radio interview. Jackie Chan said that earlier he wanted to prepare a joint performance of China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea and Japan, but later Japan and Myanmar both had problems. Coincidentally Chi Wai contacted him so everyone created this fund raiser. Jackie Chan pointed out, this event actually would help other Asian nations that required assistance. He also planned an annual all Asian fund raiser instead of waiting for every disaster.

Jackie Chan said that tonight the event will have 150 donation lines, some were set up for the Japanese people with both Japanese and English services. He was responsible for contact foreign artists. Originally Kenny G. wanted to perform, but due to too many artists he instead would send a video. He also revealed that Eric Tsang Chi Wai and Andrew Lau Wai Keung argued over singer arrangement but soon were fine. How much did he donated to this event? He said, "Whatever. I stop working, the loss from which is even more. I almost stopped for two weeks."

Speaking of reports of his kiss with Xu Jinglei, he said, "Do you think I did?" He pointed out that many people like Zhang Jingchu and Zhao Benshan were present that day. Xu Jinglei wanted to approach Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) about a movie, but Cho Ming had to work on Derek Yee Tung Sing's new film. When she left, he walked her to her car. The report then wrote that he kissed her like mad. He said, "I laughed as soon as I finished reading it. Yesterday I saw Zhang Ziyi and she joked that she wanted a 'Xu Jinglei kiss'. I am used to it." Earlier Alan Tang Kwong Wing passed away but his death was mistakenly reported instead. Jackie Chan said that he received several thousand calls. When Willie Chan Chi Keung called him he even cried and was very worried. His American manager also called him. He said, "It has been rumored many times before, I am used to this. I wouldn't clarify it right away, why do I have to clarify anything."

Also Pak Shuet Sin two days ago visited Tang Kwong Wing's family to console Mrs. Tang and her daughters. Yesterday Sister Sin again visited the Tang family but remained silent.

Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King) yesterday attended a shoe event. Speaking of her good friend Isabella Leong Lok Si's break up with Richard Li Jat Kai, she thought that her happiness was the most important. She also revealed that earlier she had a chance to meet with Myanmar democracy movement leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Yeung Chi King just returned from Thailand to Hong Kong. She stayed in Thailand for three months mainly for the Luc Besson directed film THE LADY. In it she played Aung San Suu Kyi. The film will also shoot in Oxford, England and Paris, France and will be released in October.

Yeung Chi King pointed out that when the production neared its end, she finally had the chance to meet Aung San Suu Kyi. She was very interested in meeting her and felt like she was her aunt. She knew that many people who wanted to meet her were turned down, so she was particularly excited. On the day of the meeting, she talked about her days without freedom. She pointed out that she was a honest and direct person and sensed that she missed her son very much.

What did she feel she had in common with Aung San Suu Kyi? Yeung Chi King pointed out that aside from looks, they also had the same height. She pointed out that she was very polite and smart with her words. She was not weak, she was very tough and very talented. She also said that she has seen her films and her son was her fan.

In addition, Leong Lok Si earlier announced her break up with Li Jat Kai. Isabella was rumored to be making a film comeback. Yeung Chi King said that she did not want a break up for any of her friends. She pointed out that Isabella is such a big girl she should know what she was doing. Most importantly she was happy and knew how to take care of herself. She definitely would wish her well. Would she agree with her comeback? She said that this was a personal affair and she would leave it up to her to talk about.

Japanese star Masanobu Ando and Kitty Zhang Yuqi starred THE BUTCHER, THE CHEF AND THE SWORDSMAN will open next week. In the film, Zhang Yuqi played a sexy and talented courtesan who due to her background even was mysteriously reserved and had a heroic side. In order to play the character well, she even started her dance and flute training lessons early. In an extremely difficult performance, he had to wear a red dress and robe in less than zero degree Celsius temperature to dance down the stairs barefoot to the table. The director and she were both satisfied. Zhang Yuqi said that the reason that truly attracted her to this film performance was the chance for the character to display her talent.

As for Masanobu Ando he played a mute chef. Without language as a tool to express himself, he performed with physical movement. In particularly the eyes were very important. Ando was the first actor who joined the cast and even gladly rehearsed while practicing his Chinese. He would also study how to cook with the chef. In one scene Ando had to play a beggar. The bamboo basket that he carried scratched his entire back and made him bleed. Workers asked if he needed treatment, he had a little fun at their expense and joked that few could tell when he was playing injured . His professionalism was exceptionally high and had a positive influence on the set.

Karen Mok Man Wai who just returned from South Africa stayed in Hong Kong for half a day before rushing to Beijing and Shanghai to promote her upcoming Mainland film release THE LAW OF ATTRACTION. Karen and Taiwan director and actor Leon Dai for the first time officially. Although they performed in the film TEMPTING HEART (SUM DUNG) over ten years ago, they did not have any official scene together. Thus this time was considered their first collaboration. In the film they played a couple who have been married for seven years and began to have problems. The husband finally discovered his wife's affair, thus someone deliberately created an accident. Yet after the accident they were able to pick up their initial love again.

Karen said that working with Leon Dai felt great, especially because he was also the director. Before the shoot they were able to properly communicate and she was made to get into the character easier. During the passion scene they had no embarrassment and performed very naturally. Karen said, "This time I learned a lot, working with Director Dai I came out ahead. (What is the key for a couple getting along?) I am not married yet, I really don't know how to answer. However I feel they have to learn to appreciate each other, whether good or bad they have to learn to tolerate." Because Karen's character was injured in an accident, most of the time she had to put on wound make up. However she thought she was more beautiful and even joked, "Honestly, I have never seen a complete facial injury that looked so pretty."

Known as the "Student Prince", film industry big brother Alan Tang Kwong Wing Tuesday died perhaps due to a heart attack at his home at the age of 64. Big Brother's daughters Yip Yan and Yip Wai yesterday went to identify the body. Yip Yan even asked reporters not to take photos. After half an hour, they left teary eyed and returned home. In the afternoon Chan Sin Chi helped the over 80 year old Pak Shuet Sin to the home. Later Connie Chan Bo Chu and John Chiang Dai Wai and his wife appeared. Soon, Yip Yan and Yip Wai again left home. Actually they along with Chan Suk Fun went to take care of their father's affairs at the funeral home, the details of which would be announced later.

Appearing in the public less in recent years, Tang Kwong Wing at the 2008 Lydia Shum Din Ha memorial event publicly blasted Adam Cheng Siu Chau for not fulfilling his fatherly duty and take care of Joyce Cheng Yun Yi. Yesterday Chau Guoon and Liza Wong Ming Chuen conducted final rehearsal for their New Century 2011 concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum. After 3PM, Ah Jeh with a pair of sunglasses but no make up arrived with her assistants and others . Did she hear about Tang Kwong Wing's passing? She said that she watched the news and said that they never worked together. She said, "We seem to have been in a movie but we didn't have any scene together. He was closer to Fei Jeh. I know they constantly met for dinner. Dai Soh Janet (Mrs. Tang Kwong Wing) sometimes would come to see my show. (Was the news of her passing surprising?) Yes! I always thought he was in great health, great shape!" The last time Ah Jeh saw him was last Halloween. She said, "At the time I drove past Central and suddenly three people in black caught my eyes. He, his wife and daughter were going to a party. I knew that he has always loved his family. (Did you feel he was very cool?) Yes! He studied at New Method (College), my sister went to New Method too so I paid attention. He truly was very cool, he was the Student Prince!" Chau Guoon arrived with his assistant and others at that moment. He only smiled and waved to everyone before rushing into the Hong Kong Coliseum.

In addition, director Wong Kar Wai's career rose after working on the Tang Kwong Wing invested film AS TEARS GO BY (WONG GOK KAR MOON) and DAYS OF BEING WILD (AH FEI JING JUEN). Wong Kar Wai said about his passing, "I always thought Big Brother was a healthy and happy person. Receiving this news I truly feel very surprised and sadden. He was a great friend and boss, the first who encouraged and supported me to become a director. He also shared a lot of experience with me. I would always remember her. I want to send my condolences to his family." Currently working on a series, Nancy Sit Ka Yin after receiving the news was so sad that her voice changed. She had no way to accept the news to be true. She remembered her first film with Big Brother, BUNNY GIRL (TOH NUI LONG). She played the title role and praised Big Brother was very heroic and willing to help people. She also sent her condolences to his family. Today she would return to Hong Kong and call Dai Soh.

Tang Kwong Wing's older daughter Tang Yip Yan yesterday posted online. "Nothing more could be said. Thank you everyone for your support and concern. We need persistent determination to get over the difficult times. I hope Papa's truth, honor, love and other spirits can properly live on with us. We also would continue to ignite and spread his fire of truth to this world. Papa, we love you very much!" Many artists remembered Tang Kwong Wing online. Ellen Chan Nga Lun wrote, "My dear Big Brother Tang Kwong Wing has passed away! Very sad! Too sudden, very hard to accept!" Anita Yuen Wing Yi: "Go in peace Big Brother! Dai Soh please take care!" Lam Man Chung, "Big Brother Wing in my eyes -- Tang Kwong Wing, even when he was waiting for a ride he was still cool! Big Brother, go in peace! We miss you." Peter Kam Pui Tat: "Every time I see a superstar passing, it is like a little piece of my heart fading away. Today is no exception. Tang Kwong Wing, rest in peace. I remember the days of carrying a stool in front of the television and watching you." Filmko Entertainment chair Alex Wong Hoi Fung, "Back then when Mr. Tang Kwong Wing invested in DAYS OF BEING WILD, he withstood the enormous pressure of going over time and budget, finally a classic film was made! Hopefully in Heaven he would continue to support Chinese films!" Yuen Siu Cheung: "I miss Student Prince, outstanding filmmaker, philanthropist, dog loving elder and good papa." Hins Cheung King Hin: "Life is unexpected, I just saw Big Brother on the night of the 25th at a friend's wedding banquet......Elder Tang's reputation would endure and honor would remain." Ada Choi Siu Fun: "Very sad! Miss you!" Jingle Ma Chor Sing: "Big Brother Wing has contributed a lot to film in his life, very sad! I wish you a safe journey!" In addition, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Sharon Chan Man Chi, Monica Chan Fat Yung, Stephy Tang Lai Yun, Christine Ng Wing Mei, Bondy Chiu Hok Yi and Choi Yat Chi all wished Big Brother a safe journey.

Yesterday Joyce Cheng Yun Yi, Liu Xuan, Chow Chung and others attended a Radio Hong Kong Elderly Famine 8 Hour promotional event. Speaking of god father Tang Kwong Wing's passing, Yun Yi like others friends and family thought it was very sudden. Two nights ago friends kept calling her. Finally God mother informed her of the news. Yun Yi said, "I thought very sudden, I didn't know God Father had heart disease. Normally he exercised, played golf, took walks and trained with weights, so it was very hard to accept." At Lydia Shum Din Ha's memorial event, Tang Kwong Wing publicly criticized Adam Cheng Siu Chau. Reportedly Yun Yi was at odds with her God Father after that. Yun Yi said, "Absolutely not, the final time I saw God Father was at God Mother's birthday party last year. Actually God Father has always been against me joining show business, but I was touched when he said if I needed a helping hand I should ask him. He definitely would help." Yun Yi honestly said that she regretted the most about not playing golf with God Father. She said, "Because God Father constantly pinched my waist, made fun of me being fat and wanted me to play golf with him to lose weight." Chow Chung and Leung Shun Yin never worked with Tang Kwong Wing, but Chow Chung at Shek Kin's funeral saw Tang Kwong Wing helping out at the altar. He thought he was very honorable. Leung Shun Yin thought that he was quite a gentleman.

Eric Tsang Chi Wai yesterday attended a Hong Kong Film Awards press conference. When his good friend Alan Tang Kwong Wing passed, every friend's first reaction was suspicion. "No way! He was in great health." Chi Wai said that he often saw Tang Kwong Wing exercise, early to bed and early to rise his life was very healthy. Chi Wai said, "He in recent months even quit drinking. He also walked his dog, played golf, his life was normal. I thought the news was very sudden, very hard to imagine. Recently I even heard him urge young people not to drink too much as it was not good for the heart."

Chi Wai said, he did not know about Tang Kwong Wing's heart disease and did not know whether he kept seeing a doctor. He also was unsure whether he went on casino cruises. Chi Wai after learning about Tang Kwong Wing's passing communicated with friends. Finally Willie Chan Chi Keung who personally visited the Tang family confirmed the news. Chi wai knew that many media would visit his home. The Tang family wished for more peace because Mother Tang was still at home. As for any remaining wish, Chi Wai said, "Not really, because it was too sudden."

The event also asked other artists for pledge videos, including Tony Leung Chiu Wai who was in Beijing and Kelly Chen Wai Lam. Tsang Chi Wai said, the admission would be HK$20. The event would not arrange for many singer performances as in past disaster relief events because they would like to air more videos from the disaster area. The event would provide 220 line donation hotlines, 20 of which would be for Japanese people's use and provide Japanese services. The event would keep traffic flowing, arranging locations for people to place flowers and candles. Victoria Park's three soccer fields would be used for the event.

She said that in recent years they had very little contact but constantly ran into each other. She said, "Early in my acting career, he was the most popular romantic film actor. Together we worked on Lung Kong 's film." She did not know he had heart disease but every time she saw him he looked very strong and very happy. She said that in her impression he treated friends very well and was very loyal. Speaking of romantic rumors between them, she said, "You made that up, do you believe in newspapers?" Later she changed the subject and said that BUDDHA MOUNTAIN was about life and death. Today her mood was pretty bad. As for attending the funeral, she would have to check her schedule.

The film DON't GO BREAKING MY HEART (DAN SUN NAM NUI) starred Louis Koo Tin Lok, Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho) and Gao Yuanyuan. The story was the older than dirt two men one women love triangle. Goo Jai played a financial genius who had a fast food attitude toward love. Instead Ng Yin Cho took love long and slow. They used a lot of tricks in order to win over Gao Yuanyuan's heart.

Goo Jai said that his character was a jerk who expressed the Post 80s and 90s fast food romance culture. The view on love was also flimsier and a huge comparison to Ng Yin Cho's character. Did Goo Jai have any good idea of getting girls? He said, "The most memorable part of the film was when Gao Yuanyuan forgot her keys. I had to climb four stories. At the time because I had a cruciate ligament injury, I had to personally climb up even if I was crippled. Luckily I finished it in two takes." Goo Jai said that the result was natural, without any "wire" or double. Was he concerned about his safety during the shoot? Goo Jai said, "Because I had to climb while delivering my lines, actually it was pretty high up. If I feel it would've been a big deal. If you are after a girl you have to be like this and be gutsy." Would he use similar ideas to get girls in reality? "In my teens I tried giving flowers on Valentine's Day, now I don't have time to do that. Instead after the computer rose in popularity, I could go online to look up ideas." Goo Jai said that he would not deliberate create romance. "When I chatted with friends, I realized that romance did not need to be created deliberately. Instead a shoulder already feels very secure. Also when together you have to know the other person's personality, naturally go with your heart then you are fine."

Gao Yuanyuan who worked with Johnnie To Kei Fung for the first time honestly said that at first she was confused about what the director was asking for. She said, "The first scene was very simple. I walk on the streets of Central. I thought of many ways to walk, after more than a dozen takes the director still didn't accept one. Finally the director taught me a gesture to perform. After a few more scenes I gradually understood what he wanted." As for working with Goo Jai, Gao Yuanyuan said, "Although we worked together on ROB B HOOD (BO BUI GAI WAT), we at the time had very little lines so at first we were more like strangers. Later To Sir took us to dinner and we gradually built a bond."

Because many supermarkets in Japan are out of stock, I will bring something for friends." was he worried about radiation? He said, "If I am not worried about radiation it would be untrue, but I have to be a responsible man. Something has to be done. Although my parents don't want me to go, I will go." Hu Bing said that Sendai had anti radiation suits for them. Now he will first return to Tokyo then plan to go to Sendai. However many after shocks occurred in recent days and he did not want to trouble others there. He also said that his home in Japan due to the earthquake was somewhat damaged and should cost a few tens of thousands to repair. However Tokyo properties were very safe and could withstand class ten earthquakes.

Chan Ka Wun recently has been linked to Raymond Lam Fung. She said that she paid attention online to news about Lam Fung and heard that he was hospitalized. She wished him a speedy recovery and said that Lam Fung was very optimistic. Was Lam Fung afraid of taking pictures with girls now? She said, "I don't know whether I would have a chance to work with him again, only then would we pose for pictures together." Tse Ting Ting was asked whether she knew about her brother Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi's wedding photo leak. She said that she did not see them. Her brother did not show them to her and she did ont ask her brother to. Maybe they thought they were very private. The event was related to alcohol, she said that boyfriend Andy On Chi Kit and mother were all strong drinkers. Sometimes they would drink together.

In the Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum) film MR. & MRS. SINGLE (YUN FUN NAM NUI), Eason Chan Yik Shun and Bai Bing played a couple. They had many scenes together and were sweeter time after time.

In one scene Chan Yik Shun personally cooked steak for Bai Bing and cheered her up very much. Before the shoot, the director asked Eason and Bai Bing to release all the love and tenderness. The director left them to their own devices. Bai Bing attentively fixed Eason's collar and Eason sweetly accepted it. Finally the director was satisfied. Bai Bing was very nervous about this kiss scene with Eason due to inexperience with them. Although it was just a peck, Bai Bing was still somewhat stiff. The experienced Eason as the elder shared his knowledge with Bai Bing and eased her tension. Bai Bing said, "He taught me when the cameras rolled, I couldn't let my real identity affect my performance. If I imagined my co-star as someone I liked or a toy, then it would be very simple. Finally I imagined Eason to be a very cute doll at home and kissed him like I normally kissed it. I never expected for it to truly work."

The film FOUNDING OF A PARTY yesterday held a press conference in Beijing. When introducing the characters, one of the actors Michelle Ye (Yip Shuen) suddenly fainted. Liu Ye, Huang Xin and others who were next to her immediately gave her a hand. Because Yip Shuen was wearing a dress, when she was picked up the situation was somewhat awkward. Thus the event had to be halted. The host said that the lights were very hot and with the lack of airflow, Yip Shuen probably fell ill.

Later, her manager said that Yip Shuen recently has been working on the film OVERHEARD 2 (SIT TING FUNG WON 2) and with her low blood sugar her body succumbed and she fainted. She was fine. Yip Shuen in FOUNDING OF A PARTY played Communist China early woman movement leader Li Lizhuang, a revolutionary whose role was both thrilling and suspenseful.
