Popular Mainland star Mini Yang Mi along with director Corey Yuen Kwai and Louis Fan Siu Wong appeared at the Hong Kong International Film Market and attended the WU DANG press conference. The event even premiere the film production special and promotional film. Yuen Kwai had nothing but praise for "new kung fu star" Yang Mi, complimenting her on her physical adjustments and good action genes. Fan
Siu Wong demonstrated kung fu on the spot.
Fan Siu Wong even revealed that when he shot the three turns in mid air, all the force gathered on his toes when he landed and they broke. He needed six strong men to carry him off the hill. After treatment the next day he was able to continue to work. He thought the injury was not the toughest part, which was carrying Sister Bau (Paw Hee Ching) up and down stairs several dozen times in 3,000 feet above sea level. Luckily he did not have any high altitude reaction. As for Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Vincent Zhao Wenzhou's recent dispute news, he dodged the question and said, "I don't know."
For her first kung fu film, Yang Mi inevitably got hurt. Due to wire work she was bruised all over. Was she scared off? She said, "It's OK, but it's pretty scary. Some of the stunts were highly difficult, in one scene I had to be upside down." Did she fall in love with action? She said that she did not know how the film would turn out. If viewers would accept it she would like to try again, because after finishing the action film her health improved.
