Dayo Wong Tze Wah recently shut down to prepare for his final stand up comedy show in July. Reportedly this time he made HK$ 100 million, enough to retire. "God Tze Wah" denied that. He said that he did not have the guts to imagine and stressed that he never confirmed "retirement", only "putting away the mic".

Tze Wah two nights ago deliberately "came down the mountain" to support his friend's film premiere. Aside from cast members Fish Liew Chi Yu, Lo Chun Yip, other industry insider supporters included Irene Wan Bik Ha and Cheung Tat Ming. Tze Wah said, "My first few films were (Derek) Chiu Sung Kei directed, he was the first director in my life. Originally during this period I wouldn't see anyone, but I deliberately came to show my support. When he asked me he didn't make much, this time I am not in it it should be a big hit, haha."

Tze Wah revealed that his stand up comedy would involve sensitive subjects. He said, "My show is sensitive every time, it would be sensitive in a variety of areas, like conceptually or various ways. So I remind everyone that friends under the age of 18 will not be admitted. Lately coming up with ideas and practicing truly have been very tough." Reportedly his performance would bring him HK$ 100 million, so he has made enough to retire. Tze Wah said, "I don't dare to think about it, I haven't even thought about it. The organizer didn't tell me this price, and I haven't confirmed retirement. I am only putting away the mic. Maybe Chiu Sung Kei would ask me to make a movie. (Would you accept sensitive subject movies?) The most important would be the character and the script, as I get older I have become more demanding. I need coordination in every aspect."

Earlier much thinner, two nights ago Tze Wah looked fuller. He said, "I want to be a little thinner, but I can't control my stomach. I have always been very gluttonous. The Yu Lok Tin (WAR OF THE GENDERS character) period was the most normal, my hair was too. I am heading toward Yu Lok Tin."

The Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) starred film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) two nights ago held its premiere. Director Benny Lau Wai Heng, actors Aimee Chan Yan Mei, Hedwig Tam Sin Yin, Donny Summer (Ha Siu Sing) attended. Lead actor Daichi Harashima had to return to school in Japan and was unable to attend, but he sent a video to wish a good performance for the film. Aimee appeared with her husband Moses Chan Ho. They admitted that it was a rare chance to be able to leave their children, but Chan Ho said that when they left their son chased them and asked, "Where are you going?"

First time lead actress Tong Yi said that she has already seen the film four times, each time she was moved to tears. Thus she already brought a lot of tissue with her. The night before she did not dare to watch it again to avoid appearing with eyes swollen. As for the box office, Tong Yi was no worried about the box office pressure. She would also pay out of her own pocket to book a show and treat friends to the film. Would her boyfriend Ken Hung Cheuk Lap show his support? Tong Yi said, "Every one of the colleagues at the company would come. (You can hold your boyfriend and cry when you sit next to him). When I sit with the director, I can hold the director and cry. Lately with all the promotions I see the director more than my family." Was Tong Yi afraid that her boyfriend would be jealous? She said, "Earlier I held Daichi Harashima and cried. He held me too, he even said that as soon as he held me he was all stiff. However when I held him I was all stiff too, since Daichi is young fresh meat."

Chan Yan Mei and her husband Chan Ho attended the premiere together. They both joked that it was rare opportunity to ditch their children and spend a date night at the movies. How long has it been since they had time for just the two of them? Aimee said, "Yes, it's been a good few months." Chan Ho explained that free time was hard to come by for them as parents. Two nights ago at the movies they did not dare to stay out too late, otherwise the next morning when their daughter gets up they would have to follow soon. Has their son learned to take care of his sister yet? Chan Ho said, "The older son is still too little, I am looking forward to him to be able to take care of himself first. Then it would be much more comfortable. When we were leaving our son asked us, 'Where are you going, can I come?' However I told him the movie was not suitable for children. They might not understand the ones about love."

Aimee also said that their children have never seen her act because at home they rarely turned on the television. Mainly they would show some educational cartoon for them. When they would be grown then they would be able to relive their parents' performance. As for the summer, Chan Ho said that he would have a new series to work on. His wife would take the children to Canada for a month and see the grandparents.

Vincy Chan (Wing Yi) who came to support Tong Yi did not know how tear jerking the movie would be. Luckily she had a lot of tissues on her normally. She said, "I am a crybaby, I would cry even from cartoons. Earlier when I watched BEAUTY AND THE BEAST as soon as I heard the music I already wanted to cry. Maybe watching a fairy tale made me feel time spares no one." Would her boyfriend go with her? Wing Yi said, "He didn't come. Normally he would make fun of me for crying over the smallest thing. He wouldn't watch cartoon with me." Reporters joked that Wing Yi and her boyfriend love to watch romantic action film. She said, "We would save those to watch at home, but I can't watch it with him. I would feel embarrassed, like 50 SHADES OF GRAY I watched it before he did."

    A woman is found strangled to death in an apartment in Tokyo's Katsushika Ward. The victim is Michiko Oshitani, a resident of Shiga Prefecture who worked for a home cleaning company. What's more, the occupant of the apartment where the murder took place, Mutsuo Koshikawa, has gone missing. Matsumiya and his fellow detectives of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s Investigation Section 1 begin investigating, but hit a brick wall when they fail to find any links between Oshitani and Koshikawa. Why was Oshitani, who lived in Shiga, killed in Tokyo?

    Eventually, the detectives’ inquiries lead them to a theater director named Hiromi Asai. They learn that Oshitani came to Tokyo to visit her former classmate Asai, but again come up with nothing when searching for connections between Asai and Koshikawa, and their investigation grinds to a halt.

    Matsumiya has a hunch that a charred corpse found nearby the murder scene may have some relevance to the case, and subsequently discovers an item among the victim’s belongings with the names of Nihonbashi’s 12 bridges written on it. When Kyoichiro Kaga learns of this, he is deeply shaken. It is somehow connected to his mother, who died alone...

Julian Cheung forgets to put the ring on Myolie Wu's left or right hand
courtesy of

Julian Cheung Chi Lam and Myolie Wu Hung Yi yesterday worked on a marriage proposal scene for their film DEATH NOTIFY (SEI MONG TUNG JI DAN UM HAK JEH: SAU BO KUK SEUNG HUNG WUI). They recalled their own actual proposals. Chilam said that men's knees were golden and when he proposed to his wife Anita Yuen Wing Yi he did not kneel; Hung Yi regretted that when her husband proposed, she told him to get up too soon since it was only once in a lifetime. Chilam chimed in, "As long as no one messes up!" Chilam also said that when he proposed he also gave a pair of earrings, but now he felt dumb because so far he still has not seen his wife with them on.

Cheung Chi Lam and Wu Hung Yi during a photo opportunity played their proposal scene again, but Chilam refused to kneel. He was obviously clueless about which finger the ring would go. Although it was just a film shoot, Hung Yi's diamond ring was eye catching. Chilam boasted, "I am very sincere, the diamond ring is legit -- over 2 karats big. (Did boss Stephen Shiu Jr. loan it from his personal stash?) Product placement, the sponsor provided it. After the shoot it might be given to Hung Yi." Hung Yi chimed in, "I would like it to be."

Why did Chilam not kneel to propose? He said, "Kneeling or not it's not important, the most important is size. When I saw it I jumped, how could it be so huge." Chilam talked about when he proposed to Yuen Wing Yi. "At the time we were in Singapore. I pretended to be amazing and told Len Len in the hotel room I had a gift for her. She thought it was a ring, when she learned they were earrings she was a little disappointing. I said, "There's more'. Now I feel dumb, why did I get an extra pair of earrings? So far I still haven't seen her with them on. (Did you kneel to propose?) No, men's knees are golden, but I already gave her an extra pair of earrings to her. (Because Len Len agreed immediately you didn't need to kneel?) We were in love, without too many mumbo jumbo."

Hung Yi revealed, "When he proposed, my husband of course knelt, but he didn't kneel too long. My natural response was to tell him to get back up after several second. I regret very much that I should have told him to kneel longer so I can properly remember this moment. It may be once in a lifetime." Chilam joked, "The next time he kneels would probably for messing up, I hope it's once in a lifetime. So my knees are golden, I would never kneel. As long as I don't mess up I am fine."

Her friend Mandy Wong Chi Man was rumored to wed this year and now is choosing a date. Would Hung Yi sponsor the wedding gown and help with the date, Hung Yi's lips were sealed. "You have to ask her." Chilam joked, "Are you kidding? You can't even talk about it a little?" Hung Yi said, "The sooner the better, she has to check her schedule." Chilam kept going. "Something is up, that means the date is set?" Hung Yi ignored him and joked that she had to keep it a mystery.

"Yu Fa" Lee Kin Yan and "Sugar Cone Fai" Cheng Man Fai's new film WONG GOK LO PAU CHONG DONG BUK (MONGKOK OLD GUNS IN THE NORTHEAST) two nights ago held a charity premiere. Lee Kin Yan said that in the film he would have a family scene that he has never played in his career before. "I have been working in the Mainland for 15 years and made many different films. Some have already departed from cross dressing, I have even played an emperor and a hero. This time I would dress as a woman still, I would be abused then I would rise." He said that the film had a Hong Kong and Northeast crossover element, with the Northeast dialect and "HK Putonghua" it would be pretty funny. "I originally didn't know how to speak Putonghua, while working in the Mainland I learned slowly. Now others understand what I am saying; instead Sugar Cone Fai's Putonghua, no one understands too well. Luckily his body language is decent." Also a writer, Cheng Man Fai revealed that he gave his on screen first kiss to Mainland actress Xi Meili. It was her first time too. Lee Kin Yam was envious. "He told me sorry, next time he would arrange it for me."

Speaking of Stephen Chow Sing Chi's current MERMAID 2 production, would they take part? Lee Kin Yan said that he was busy with a series in Hengdian then a detective film with Cheng Man Fai. He might not have room on his schedule. "He raised us. Because of his movies so many in the Mainland like us. Now we have the chance to play the leads. I am grateful from the heart for all his help along the way, without him we wouldn't be here. I really hope to have a chance to work with him again."

Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) yesterday promoted her film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) on the radio. For her first lead role, she said that as the release grew closer she got more nervous. For days she has not been able to sleep due to stress. She said that lately she attended 50 advanced screening audience appreciation events, the response has been great and thus she got a shot of confidence. How has her boyfriend Ken Hung Cheuk Lap reacted? Tong Yi said, "Now in my heart is only Daichi Harashima, but he left me and returned to Japan for classes. He left me alone to promote and attend the premiere, I seem to be missing half of my body. I hope the film would perform well and he would come to Hong Kong to celebrate."

Tong Yi once promised to skinny dip to celebrate a good box office performance. "The director, Daichi Harashima and I would skinny dip separately. I feel I can swim, at sea no one could see anything. However I believe no one would want to anyway, my figure isn't good enough. I would leave the skinny dip to the guys. I would try to cook for the entire team."

Francis Ng Chun Yu in the crime film opened on June 21st, THE LEAKERS (SIT MUK JEH MOON), played a tough Hong Kong cop. With the Malaysian policeman Julian Cheung Chi Lam he investigates a shocking conspiracy behind a pandemic. This time Chun Yu's performance was rather on the spot. His character was both brave and smart. Without any regard for his own safety, he was a mad man who only knew to squeeze himself dry and use every trick in the book to investigate a case nonstop, day and night. Thus he looked sloppy in the film. For his character he even grew out his hair and dyed it blond. He even got himself fat for a pot belly.

Chun Yu said, "I deliberately messed up my hair and gained weight. I don't know how fat I got, I just wanted to have some belly. That way I would match the character even more. In the film Siu Wan (Halina Tam) and I are a couple. This time she isn't selling fish balls, she is a police officer. She is very sharp, unchanged despite the years. She still looks the same." In the film Chun Yu only had his mind on finding the mastermind and the leakers' identities. He was too busy to go home, which became the trigger for end of his marriage with his wife. Chun Yu's performance of how tough a divorced cop could be was completely convincing.

Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin, Michelle Wai Sze Nga, Tsui Tin Yau and Wong Yau Nam yesterday attended the film JOI GEIN UFO (SEE YOU UFO)'s production start ceremony outside the Space Museum in Tsim Sha Tsui. Ah Sa's cohort Gillian Chung Yun Tung earlier wed the "medical world god" Michael Lai in the U.S. Ah Sa not only congratulated them but also received the bouquet from Ah Gil directly. However she said that she would let marriage take its natural course. She even revealed that back then she and Ah Gil wanted to go to Bermuda together. She believed that now Mrs. Lai would make that happen and would not leave her behind.

Earlier going to Los Angeles to attend Ah Gil's wedding party, Ah Sa revealed that after returning to Hong Kong she immediately began work on the film. Although the jet lag has been severe, yesterday she worked on the scene in which she bombed her job interview at the Space Museum. Thus she could be out of it and did not need to be too alert.

Ah Sa said that when she was little she loved to go to the Space Museum shows, but she has not been back in over a decade. This time the story revolved around UFO. She, Tin Yau and Yau Nam saw an UFO but no one believed them. Ah Sa said, "Ha Siu Sing (Donny Summer) always talks about UFO. I believe in the existence of UFO. I want to see it, I wouldn't be afraid. I really like to see stuff that is related to history, like the Pyramid, the Colosseum and Machu Picchu, Peru,. However I haven't been to Egypt. Earlier Ah Gil and I wanted to go to Bermuda together." Ah Gil now had to keep her husband company, so she probably would not be able to go with her? Ah Sa said that Ah Gil was not like that. Reporters suggested for her to go there for her honeymoon. She said, "I will worry about it then!" Ah Sa also said that everyone thought that from all the movies she had to make this, she must be very hard working. Actually she wanted to finish them sooner so she could relax more in the second half of the year.

Ah Gil handed her the bouquet at the wedding party. Did she want her to wed soon? Ah Sa said that it was just for good luck, she would let it take its natural course. She also said that looking back she felt strange, because Joey Yung Cho Yi was holding her from behind while Yumiko Cheng Hei Yi stared at her from afar like she was being held captive. The process was truly very touching. She also revealed that Ah Gil was still in the U.S. In order to attend Ah Gil's wedding party, Ah Sa was unable to celebrate her boyfriend's birthday with him. How would she make it up to him? She revealed that she would have dinner with him. She already gave him a present. She boasted, "We get it."

Tin Yau and Yau Nam said that 16 years after SUMMER BREEZE OF LOVE (JEH GOR HA TIN YAU YI SING), they worked with Ah Sa again on a film. In it they played friends. Tin Yau said that in the film he and Sze Nga would have a romance. He thought that there would be no intimate scene. Since the film was about 80's nostalgia he thought it would be a little more innocent. Later the director told him that there would be a passionate scene. Sze Nga said that at first she thought that it would only be a kiss, but the director told her it would be "a little more". With her experience, that meant that there would be a lot of room for imagination. The few words in the script meant the more extreme it would be. Tin Yau joked, "The director even asked me if I asked a trainer to work out, like I would have to take off my clothes at any moment."

Yau Nam revealed that he had to lose weight for his ailing character. The director that he could drop back to his GALLANTS (DA LUI TOI)'s 115 pounds, but that would be impossible. He said, "To lose weight I haven't eaten in two days, I just had black coffee. I had 3 or 4 cups a day. Now there is 'out not in'. I had stomach pain." Tin Yau also felt bad for Yau Nam. "I thought I was bad with just broccoli, he didn't get to eat at all. If I had to return to how thin I was when I started, I thought I would need computer graphics!"

In a strap dress, Sze Nga said that she felt tough seeing the blazing sun outside. Luckily most of her scenes would be shot at night.

The anti corruption action film THE L STORM (L FUNG BO) has been scheduled for an August 23rd release in Hong Kong. Yesterday the film held a Shanghai press conference. Director David Lam Tak Luk along with actors Louis Koo Tin Lok, Julian Cheung Chi Lam, Kevin Cheng Ka Wing and Feng Lei attended.

Director Lam Tak Lun revealed that this time the film not only continued the spirit of its predecessors but with major upgrades. The case scale, anti corruption team, action scenes would break through the past. The film would have bright spots galore, including sea, land and air pursuits, major explosion and action scenes.

Goo Jai, Chilam, Ka Wing and Feng Lei displayed their "eye abilities" and interpreted various highly different looks. Goo Jai and Chilam had to stare at each other viciously and hopefully, which were rather awkward for them but great for the audience! Chilam even revealed Goo Jai's secret of staying young, when on the set he would not eat from morning to afternoon. He would not eat until night. Goo Jai stated that he has kept this habit for years. He would finish work at night, eat then sleep.

The press conference even directly turned into an "anti corruption event". The organizers "in the name of the people" presented anti corruption awards to the actors. Goo Jai was praised as "anti corruption role model", from the first to third film Goo Jai's Luk Chi Lim has been dutiful and faithful to his anti corruption profession. This time in the anti corruption process, Goo Jai even personally performed various dangerous stunts; Chilam was called "anti corruption disguise master. In the film he turned Filipino for an investigation and even spoke Tagalog; Ka Wing as the L team investigation supervisor relentlessly went after Goo Jai. He not only targeted Goo Jai but also performed an exciting "boat scene". Thus he was dubbed the "anti corruption gatekeeper". Due to how close "boat" and "bed" sound in Putonghua, Ka Wing while talking about the fight scene with Goo Jai on the boat said "bed" scene and the audience could not stop laughing.

Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi), Daichi Harashima and director Benny Lau Wai Heng yesterday attended an audience appreciation event for their film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET). Aside from interacting with the audience, Daichi Harashima also gave protection charms that he brought from Japan to give to the audience.

Tong Yi said that the film will not open until the end of the month, but lately every week advanced screenings were held. She had confidence in the film because at each advanced screening the audience response was rather positive. Many friends said that they would book shows to watch. Would she ask boyfriend Ken Hung Cheuk Lap to dig into his wallet and book a show? She said, "I am the lead actress, of course I will be booking the show. I have already treated many friends to watch the film." She continued that her boyfriend has already seen the advanced screening and felt that in the film she was a kid but actually had a gentle and cute side that he has not seen normally. However her boyfriend did not ask her to turn gentle and she too felt that being herself would be the best. In the film she played a student. Has his boyfriend asked her to wear school uniform more at home? Tong Yi said, "No need, I wore it so much in the movie. Everyone likes my femininity more."
