Best Actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai and director Wong Kar Wai earlier promoted THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) in Singapore. Reportedly actress Song Hye-Kyo was upset at being left with only one line and was absent from the promotion, Wai Jai expressed sympathy and even asked Wong Kar Wai to treat actors kindly!
Leung Chiu Wai and Wong Kar Wai arrived in Singapore with a crew of 10, including Leung Chiu Wai's private security and 6 film company security guards.
During the interview, actors who work with Wong Kar Wai are never certain about their characters. Wai Jai said, "When I made his movies before, I never had a time that I was as certain as this time. I only knew what I was playing. Theirs (other actors) I didn't know about. I hope the director would one day 'treat them kindly'!" Speaking of Song Hye-Kyo only having one line in the film, Wai Jai "sympathized". Wong Kar Wai said, "Not every actor is as mature as Wai Jai!" However he also denied that Song Hye-Kyo was upset.
Wong Kar Wai's movie is full of mystery, but actually he is very mysterious himself. Because he has not removed his sunglasses for years, reporters joked if THE GRANDMASTERS was a hit would he celebrate by taking off his sunglasses? He made a rare joke and said that he only had one pair of sunglasses and was very faithful. The tender look behind the sunglasses would only be saved for his wife.
