THE GUILLOTINES (HUET DIK JI) will be released on January 3 2013. The GUILLOTINES team was an Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin) captained killer organization that took orders from the Emperor (Andrew Lau Wai Keung). They grew up together and had close relationships. Shawn Yue Man Lok was an intelligence official for the Emperor and secretly exchanged information with Yuen King Tin. During the shoot, Lau Wai Keung often had dinner and drinks with the cast. The young actors very quickly became familiar with each other and had very good chemistry. Normally when they were waiting to take their mark, the young people would find some way to kill time like playing "killer". They often chatted and laughed, and were as intimate as if they were forming a gay rights group. Even Director Lau Wai Keung surrendered. "I can't take you guys anymore!" During the shoot actors kept getting hurt. Siu Ting joked that THE GUILLOTINES truly lived up to its name, as soon as it was released blood would be spilled. Yet the blood was not the enemy's but their own. Jing Boran also said that from the blood on his hand he knew that they truly were men who shed blood for THE GUILLOTINES.
Siu Tin said that the horse riding training was very tough. Luckily after a few practices they began to gain control, then they even fell in love with horse riding. He said that he used to enjoy the freedom of driving, but now he loved horse riding even more as he was addicted to that feeling of being on the run. In the GUILLOTINES team, his "horseback abilities" were the best. He could spend an afternoon on a horse or ride a horse into town to buy food for the team. However after riding for awhile, his crotch was a bit sore. Thus starting on the second day on the horse, he asked the women of the team for tampons as padding inside his pants. He joked that riding felt much more comfortable after that.
Meanwhile, Chris Lee Yuchun yesterday attended THE GUILLOTINES press conference in Beijing. Her theme song made its debut. Director Lau Wai Keung was known to speak "the worst Putonghua in the entire team". He had several moments that caused laughter at the event and needed Lee Yuchun to be his translator. Lee Yuchun learned about Huang Xiaoming's injury and stated that she had to visit him even if she was busier because they were great combat buddies in THE GUILLOTINES.
