The film MAD WORLD (YUT LIM MO MING) last year won the Golden Horse Award Best New Director and Best Supporting Actor. At the time considered the missed nomination gem, Shawn Yue Man was nominated for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor. This was also his first Hong Kong Film Award nomination in his 17 year career. He said that he was very happy to be nominated, but he gave the credit to the team.
Director Wong Chun, Yue Man Lok yesterday promoted MAD WORLD in Taiwan. Originally Eric Tsang did not plan to Taiwan but he made a sudden appearance. Yesterday he and his daughter Bowie Tsang were speaking at Fo Guang Shan. When he learned that Lok Jai came to Taiwan, Tsang Chi Wai who originally had to fly to Europe for a movie immediately postponed his flight and promoted with him.
Lok Jai at the end of last year admitted his relationship with Sarah Wang on Instagram. He said yesterday, "I didn't admit it, I was forced because I was caught". However he also felt that "since I am 35, it doesn't matter" He graciously answered the media's question about his relationship.
Lok Jai said that in the past he would make 7 or 8 movies a year, he would very easily be trapped in emotions like his MAD WORLD character. Without a channel for release he would easily built up until he exploded. However now he reduced his production rate and was more able to adjust his emotions. Was it because he had more time that he was able to date? He said, "I have only been dating for 3 months, it probably has nothing to do with that."
He only worked on MAD WORLD for 14 days, during which he was on an emotional roller coaster. Would he bring his girlfriend to the movie? He said, "She would watch it when she has time". He instead said that "I won't watch this movie again" as after watching his mood would sink too low.
