THE VIRAL FACTOR (YIK JIN) performed well as it already passed 20 million at the Hong Kong and Macau box office. Director Dante Lam Chiu Yin led Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun), producer Leung Fung Ying, screen writer Ng Wai Lun to the cinema for audience appreciation. Tickets quickly sold out in a few hours. When Chow Kit Lun arrived in Hong Kong many fans welcomed him at the airport. Then they rushed to the cinema to enjoy the film. Their schedule was tighter than their idol Chairman Chou.
The cinema had over 500 people and no empty seat. Viewers became very excited to see the creators. In particular Chow Kit Lun's fans kept screaming. Everyone knew that Chairman Chou always wanted to look good. The host arranged for fans to impersonate Chairman Chou's chok look. Chairman Chou personally selected the winner who would receive an autographed poster. Chairman Chou flew from Taipei for audience appreciation, the first event of this type that he participated in. "For my first Hong Kong audience appreciation event, it feels very fresh. Viewers and fans are enthusiastic and spread the joy throughout the venue, which I enjoyed. I rarely have a chance to interact with Hong Kong fans, this time I am able to chok with them, everyone have had a lot of fun." After the chok game came the lucky drawing that gave away director Lam Ciu Yin and Chow Kit Lun's personally autographed film memorabilia like novels, photo books and action figures. The process was very exciting and so were the winners. Some fans even revealed that they saw the movies ten times.
