"Festival Grand Cinema" opening ceremony and THREE (SAM YUN HUNG) film premiere took place two nights ago. Guests included Peter Lam Kin Ngok, Terry Lai, Johnnie To Kei Fung, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Yau Nai Hoi, Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai), Edmond Leung Hon Leung, William So Wing Hong, Wong Ka Keung, the Grasshoppers, Michael Wong Man Tak, Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam), Bernice Liu Bik Yi and Alex Lam Tak Shun. Goo Jai revealed that in the film he truly slapped Vicki Zhao Wei and even left red finger marks on her face.

The master of ceremony asked Koo Tin Lok how he handled having to slap Zhao Wei in the film. Goo Jai admitted that during the shoot he could use camera angles. He truly slapped Zhao Wei loudly. He also joked that he was very envious of Wallace Chung Han Leung for being able to sleep during the shoot. Sometimes he would fall asleep even during rehearsal and he did not feel right about waking him up. Goo Jai joked, "Although this wasn't a category III film, all the bed scenes are truly rare!"

To Kei Fung during the interview had chemistry with Koo Tin Lok after working together many times. Thus he wanted to come up with a harder character for him. Chung Han Leung got an easier to play character. Goo Jai also said that he learned a lot from To Sir and felt like a part of the family, especially during the shoot he was the happiest about all the great food. Sometimes on location they would also look for good food all over. Goo Jai also revealed that this time the entire film was almost completely shot inside the hospital. He did not have to brave the weather but a long range slow motion action scene took the actors several months to complete. To Sir said that he shot it that way without any photography technique assistance mainly because he wanted the actor's pace and speed of their performance; he also thanked the doctors and the nurses for participating in the shoot assistance.

Speaking of slapping Zhao Wei, Goo Jai admitted that he really slapped her. Because To Sir said that if the scene was not shot well they might need to shoot again. Thus he already let loose on Zhao Wei the first time, but in the end he still needed to make four or five times before finishing. To Sir said, "The slap was sudden, sometimes we didn't know which mark would be accurate. We needed a little coordination!" Goo Jai also admitted that Zhao Wei's face was all red with his finger marks from being slapped. He immediately pointed at To Sir and said, "I told me to do it!" To Sir joked, "If we fake it it would have been worse! Sometimes we don't know which reaction would be the right one!"
