Fresh out of the oven Golden Horse Best Actress Karena Lam Ka Yun earlier worked with Jacky Cheung Hok Yau on the new film THE FRENCH KISS (UM SIK TIN TONG). They worked together 13 years earlier on another teacher student romance film. At the time Ka Yun swept the Golden Horse awards with the film. Working together again, Ka Yun before the release of FRENCH has already won the Golden Horse Best Actress. No wonder her co-star Hok Yau joked that she got good luck from working with him. Playing a pastor in the film, Hok Yau fell for his subordinate Ka Yun in the film and got into legal trouble because of it.

The film is Ka Yun and her director husband Steve Yuen Kim Wai's first film collaboration. This time she even worked her claim to fame about teacher student relationship JULY RHAPSODY (NAM YUN SEI SUP) lead actor Cheung Hok Yau. Many are looking forward to their reunion after 13 years.

Ka Yun worked together on JULY RHAPSODY with Hok Yau and won the Golden Horse Best Supporting Actress and Best New Performer. This time after working together again she won the Golden Horse Best Actress. No wonder Hok Yau joked that Ka Yun got good luck from working with him. Hok Yau originally thought that Ka Yun would have a chance to win with FRENCH, but she won the Golden Horse Best Actress before that. It was quite a surprise for him.

Hok Yau and Ka Yun in FRENCH again had an ambiguous relationship. Playing the pastor, Hok Yau was a non profit group's CEO at the same time. He and his subordinate Ka Yun became attracted to each other, but due to their identities they had difficulty with developing a relationship. Hok Yau finally gave in and kissed Ka Yun, who then sued him for sexual harassment. Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Helena Law Lan played their lawyers, and Michelle Wai Si Nga also had a part.

THE FRENCH KISS is Emperor Motion Picture invested and distributed, based on the female stage writer Candace Chong Mui Ngam's 2005 play. The story once won the Hong Kong Drama Awards Best Script and Top Ten Most Popular Programs. At the same time, Ka Yun's husband Yuen Kim Fai directed the film. Making his film directing debut, he shot many make out in the car and look exchanging scenes for Ka Yun and Hok Yau. Ka Yun's performance in the new film was outstanding and had a chance with the assistance of her husband and Hok Yau win another Best Actress award.

The Golden Horse Best Actress Karena Lam Ka Yun yesterday attended a restaurant event. Her family showed their support in secret. Ka Yun revealed that when she tried to breast feed in public things got awkward. "At tea I breast fed under the cover of a cloth, the people around me looked at me strangely. In the end I had to breast feed in the women's room. I wasn't really happy, since breast feeding is so natural."

Did Ka Yun celebrate more after winning Best Actress? She revealed that she got sick as soon as she got home. "I had a fever as soon as I got back, but at 8AM I took my daughter to school as usual." She said that she got many good scripts and that her film with Jacky Cheung Hok Yau will open in March. Speaking the Golden Horse jury after three rounds of discussion only voted once to make Ka Yun the Best Actress, she said, "It depends on the taste of the jury and luck every year. It's fine once it's passed, there is no need to bring it up again."

The PORT OF CALL (DAP HUET CHUM MUI) Golden Horse Award Best Supporting Actor Michael Ning (Bak Ji) yesterday attended an audience appreciation event. Fans surrounded him for photos. He said that people often mistook him for Lam Suet, which improved after he won an award. "It's not important whether they know me or not, the most important is they know the film."

As the band Juicyning's guitarist and a stage actor, Bak Ji said that he would not only focus on making movies. "I still have to work on musicals and music, I want to make movies but for now I haven't gotten any new script. (Did you get a raise?) I haven't thought about it, but I hope people would since we are all working class folk!" Aside from comedy he also hoped to play all the characters of the late veteran actor Roy Chiao (Kiu Wang). "I feel he was an amazing actor."

This year would have been the kung fu superstar of a generation Bruce Lee's 75th birthday. The Bruce Lee Foundation last night held an unveiling ceremony for the Bruce Lee's 75th birthday limited edition watch. Bruce Lee's widow Linda and daughter Shannon came from Los Angeles to attend. Other guests included Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Andy Tien (On Chi Kit), Carl Ng Ka Lung and others. On the stage, Shannon Lee said that although her father has passed away for a long time, she still missed him everyday. She also thanked everyone for their love for her father, especially in establishing the Bruce Lee foundation. Currently working on a STAR WARS film in England, Yen Chi Tan revealed that he took time off to return to Hong Kong. The director even asked Chi Tan to thank him in front of the media more. Tomorrow Chi Tan will head to the Maldives and England to continue the location shoots. The shoot will take over four months. He also said that no matter men and women they all liked Bruce Lee because he represented the culture of strength. He even said that he was deeply under Bruce Lee's influence. Since childhood he already wanted to be the second Bruce Lee. When he was 12 or 13 he often impersonated Bruce Lee. He went to Chinatown to buy a Chinese suit and even turned a broom into a pair of home made nunchukus to put in his socks. Even when someone "picked a fight" he still could "scare them off". Did he know Bruce Lee's family? He said that over a decade ago he and Shannon Lee posed for photos in Los Angeles for a magazine. He was very happy to run into her again this time.

On Chi Kit first knew about Jackie Chan before Bruce Lee, but he admired his kung fu. Speaking of his wife Jessica C.'s pregnancy, he said that his wife will soon go to the U.S. for the birth. After he finishes his film he will fly there to join her, but he did not want to reveal the sex of the baby.
