The film PORT OF CALL (DAP HUET CHUM MUI) two nights ago held its premiere. Its actors Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Michael Ning (Bak Ji), Elaine Jin (Kam Yin Ling), Jessie Li (Chun Xia) and Patrick Tam Yiu Man attended. Sing Sing although was unable to win his third Golden Horse Best Actor with the film, he still appeared to be in good spirits. The actors even congratulated the Golden Horse Best Supporting Actor Bak Ji.
Sing Sing has seen the film four times but two nights ago he still went. Speaking of his Golden Horse defeat, he said that he would not feel disappointed. When Feng Xiaogang was announced the winner, he looked like he was pouting. Sing Sing explained. "I wasn't pouting because of the result. Only the media used that captioned photo. I am fine." Because he has not seen Feng Xiaogang's award winning MR. SIX, he had no comment but he would respect the result and congratulate all winners. He continued, "Every award have both wins and losses. (You were the pre race favorite) It's normal, losing an award isn't important. Just don't lose self confidence. (Will you have Hong Kong Film Award expectations next year?) No, the most important to make good movies and be able to answer to the audience." As for his future jobs, Sing Sing will still mainly make movies. After COLD WAR 2 (HONG JIN 2) wraps , he will go to Beijing and Shanghai for another film. Then he will return to Hong Kong to promote his Lunar New Year film THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAI YAU GEI ji SUEN NG HONG SAM DA BAK GWUT JING).
Fellow Golden Horse nominee Kam Yin Ling also did not win. She said that she was not displeased. Speaking of her sex same friend So Sze Wong despite her illness still worked with a cane because she promised to take care of her for the rest of her life, Kam Yin Ling said, "Thank you everyone, Ah So is great, I am great too. The illness is very hard to treat. Now we are looking for Chinese medicine to ease her pain. (Are you moved?) Not much to be moved about." Mainland actress Chun Xia in the film had passionate sex scenes with Bak Ji. She said that before the shoot they communicated very well. Was full nudity her bottom line? She felt that an actor should not have any bottom line, one should weigh the options for oneself. As for Bak Ji's Golden Horse award, Chun Xia said that during the announcement she was so emotional she broke down because everyone was very excited. She was not upset about not winning the New Performer Award.
