Carlos Chan gets treatment after another injury
courtesy of

The film TO THE FORE (POR FUNG) after completing its Tengger desert shoot headed to its final stop, Shanghai, to continue its shoot. Aside from reuniting Wang Luodan with Eddie Peng Yu-Yen and Shawn Dou Xiao for romance, the trip also enabled Peng Yu-Yen, Dou Xiao, Choi Si-Won and Carlos Chan Ka Lok to complete their Shanghai street race. The film has been in production for almost four months. Earlier it finally wrapped officially in Shanghai. Peng Yu-Yen even treated the team to big crabs (Chinese mitten crabs).

Shooting in the city might sound safer than in the desert, but the shoot had one accident after another. Professional riders had flat tires and crashes. The leads even became injured in falls. The worst was Choi Si-Won, who was bruised after a water truck crashed into his bicycle. Chan Ka Lok also had another accident after Taiwan. Luckily he learned his lesson last time and this time his injury was not as severe. He lamented that he was "jinxed". Peng Yu-Yen and Dou Xiao were fortunate enough to stay on their bikes so the shoot continued smoothly. They joked that perhaps they were injured so often early on that they have become invulnerable. At the wrap banquet, Peng Yu-Yen even treated the team to extra crabs.
