The Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and Gao Yuanyuan starred film BUT ALWAYS (YUT SUN YUT SAI) will open on September 4. Although this was a romance, it still had a fight scene. In order to protect his love Gao Yuanyuan, Ting Fung took on three people and even took a shot to the head!
In this fight scene Ting Fung in order to make a quick buck went into black market foreign currency exchange and thus upset a street boss. Finally the boss brought two thugs to ambush Ting Fung and Yuanyuan. In comparison to THE VIRAL FACTOR (YIK JIN), AS THE LIGHT GOES OUT (GAU FOR YING HUNG) and their series of stunts, Ting Fung's fight scene this time naturally was more relaxed. However he still was very serious. By the afternoon he was already on the set and fully prepared. With his Wing Chun background, Ting Fung even worked as this scene's "action director" as he helped other actors with their rehearsals. When they tested the marks everyone truly wielded the props. Sounds arose from Ting Fung being hit and the shoot was very serious.
At night during the official shoot, three people ganged up on Ting Fung, who also had to protect Yuanyaun. He was forced to take several merciless shots. Finally he even took a glass bottle to the head! Over a year ago Ting Fung had skin cancer on his head and needed five stitches from the surgery. Thus the team was very worried about hitting him in the head even though they were using props. Yuanyaun said, "I have rarely participated in this type of fight scenes. This time I heard one explosion after another in such a close distance, I really was a little scared." Ting Fung said that this scne was not tough. The dramatic scenes took even more effort. "The weariness from making this film was complete exhaustion. Actually romantic scenes were more tiring than fight scenes. That 30 seconds of heartache hurt more than when I jumped from several stories above. I didn't think that I will make another romance again in the next few years, because it truly is very tiring."
