Adam Cheng Siu Chau, Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Raymond Lam Fung, Yu Bo and director Ronny Yu Yun Tai yesterday appeared at the Hong Kong International Film Market for their new film SAVING GENERAL YANG (JUNG LIT YEUNG GA JEUNG) press conference and shared their production memories.  The director praised that he never imagined Lam Fung to be so capable at fighting and that thanked the seven hunks for completing a very cool film for him.  He remembered when he first met each young person he was worried that they would not be able to communicate.  Luckily he had a "hunk old cake" and had no problem, then he patted Chau Guoon next to him and cracked everyone up.  Chau Guoon also revealed that originally he turned down the film, later the director's sincerity moved him.  After reading the script his wife took the role for him.  He felt lucky that he did not miss the chance.

Chau Guoon revealed that he has not made a film in the past ten years because he has always been busy with television series.  The toughest part of the entire film was riding horses and fighting with the Guan blade.  Luckily he never fell off the horse.  The director made fun of him as a hunk old cake, Chau Guoon pretended to be mad and joked that if he knew earlier he would not have made the film.  Actually his director was close to him in age, old age has old charm.  Aside from sincerity was a high offer made?  Chau Guoon said that he was not sure, maybe he would not be paid because being able to work with a famous director was already very decent.

Ekin went from not knowing how to ride a horse to now being able to get on a horse after a two week rapid training class.  He revealed that the horse knocked him off once, he only realized that his hip might be slightly misaligned after the shoot.  He has not been scared off though, instead he felt that in the future he will be able to keep working.  Ekin joked, "The most amazing part was the director wanted us to be on real horses even during dramatic scenes, unlike fake horses on television series.  This really was the hardest, it was really like a foreign film.  Someone who was used to making foreign films indeed was different."  In addition, speaking of Gigi Leung Wing Kei's rumored pregnancy, Ekin immediately congratulated her and said that they were rarely in contact so he was not sure.  When she got married did he receive any cake?  Ekin said, "We were that familiar!  (When would be your turn?)  Okay bye bye!"
