Kam Yin Ling had many fights with Yue Man Lok in the film. She revealed that in the film she hit Yue Man Lok for real. "When I worked with Chow Yun Fat on the film LOVE UNTO WASTE (DEI HA CHING), Chow Yun Fat slapped me too. Chow Yun Fat's serious slap made me see stars and dizzy. I performed that scene very well because real emotions flowed."
