The film LOVE OFF THE CUFF (CHUNG GIU GAU JI MING) sold out both of its Hong Kong Film Festival shows in the first 5 minutes of ticket sales. This time the director continued to play with collective memories and Cantonese pop songs. Aside from LEGEND in the earlier trailer, the director added his beloved cartoon characters YATTERMAN into the story. In the film Cherie really liked YATTERMAN but Jimmy never heard of them. This generation gap upset Cherie very much. She could not help but performed at home the YATTERMAN theme song in hopes of awaking Jimmy's memory. Yet in real life Chin Wa was not too familiar with the YATTERMAN song. She too only started to learn it after getting the script. Of course in the end this song was no match for Chin Wa! During rehearsal on the set she already performed the entire song. After the director enjoyed Chin Wa's performance, he even wanted Ah Lok and the crew to dance for Chin Wa. The crew said that they got to listen to a song on the set out of the blue, it was like a Miriam Yeung Chin Wa concert for them.
