Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Law Chung Him and director Soi Cheang Po Shui yesterday promoted their Lunar New Year film THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAI YAU GEI ji SUEN NG HUNG SAM DA BAK GWUT JING). A full scale wax statue of Sun Wukong on the tumbling cloud was on display, but Sing Sing thought that it did not resemble him. MONKEY will hold a Beijing premiere on the 20th, then a Hong Kong premiere later. He hoped to be able to bring his mother to attend. Will he bring his girlfriend? He said, "I am not talking about my personal life." Although the Lunar New Year competition will be strong, Sing Sing was full of confidence at the box office. Ultimately the production took half a year and the actors put in a lot of effort. His Sun Wukong look also took seven hours, which exhausted him physically and mentally. He said, "The make up left my face 'without any good flesh'. I had to glue of hair and wear a muscle suit. I was so hot but I didn't dare to wipe away the sweat."
Because of the national release, Sing Sing will have to visit over 20 places to promote. He will not be able to spend Lunar New Year's Eve with his family. Will he take his girlfriend home to pay a New Year visit to his mother? He said, "Even I can't go home to have dinner! (Can you ask your girlfriend to go in your stead) I can't." Born on the Year of the Snake, Sing Sing's sign will clash next year. Will he consider getting married for good luck? He joked, "Don't talk about that, I want to focus on work. Later I have to go to Shanghai for THE ETERNAL WAVE. (Will you be in Shanghai for Valentine's Day?) I am going to Shanghai... for work!" Earlier he booked a show to work a movie with his girlfriend, will he book another one for his friends? He said that he hoped his friends would book their own shows.
