The Vicki Zhao Wei, Shu Qi, Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin), Mark Chao (Chiu Yau Ting), Eddie Peng Yu-Yen and Doze Niu Chen-Zer starred romance LOVE will not officially open in Hong Kong until the 23rd, but in Taiwan it opened on the 10th. Its box office in two and a half days reached NT$37 million and created the highest box office record in Taiwan this year.
With the hot Taiwan opening LOVE yesterday opened in the Mainland at 14:00. The time selection was due to its Putonghua euphony that meant "for a lifetime". Hong Kong film distributors decided to hold advanced
screenings on Valentine's Day, the 18th and the 19th.
The cast earlier attended the Beijing premiere. Zhao Wei and Shu Qi even kissed each other amidst the cheer of the media and the audience to create the most classic scene since SO CLOSE (JIK YEUNG TIN SI). Viewers who have seen the film overwhelmingly voted for Shu Qi and Chiu Yau Ting's characters as the "most envious" and the "most fortunate" characters. Shu Qi received the most female viewer envy because in the film she was under the take of tycoon Niu Chen-Zer and had time to have an affair with Chiu Yau Ting, finally she was even able to find true love like Yuen King Tin! Chiu Yau Ting was the most fortunate because he had kiss scenes with Shu Qi and Zhao Wei; Chiu Yau Ting gleefully said, "When I kissed I felt the air around me freeze and time also stopped!"
