Wong Cho Lam's directing debut, the Lunar New Year film I
LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! (NEI MAI LEI, NGOR OI NEI!) two
nights ago held its premiere. Cho Lam and film producer Elaine Lok Yi
Ling led actors Teresa Mo Shun Kwan, Eliza Sam Lai Heung, Alex Fong Lik
Sun, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Candy Yu On On, Christine Kuo, James Ng Yip
Kwan, Louis Yuen Siu Cheung, Michael Ning (Bak Ji) and guest star Melody
Park So-yeon in attendance. Leanne Li Yanan who gave birth to Cho Lam's
daughter Gabrielle at the end of last month also showed her support for
her husband. Would Cho Lam arrange for Yanan to perform next time? Cho
Lam said that next time she might have another one and another scheduling
conflict, seemingly he really wanted to have another!
Former member of the Korean group T-ara, Park So-yeon greeted
everyone on the stage in Cantonese, "How are you? I am very honored to be
able to work with Cho Lam, very honored to be able to come to Hong Kong
and work with Wong Cho Lam on this movie. I hope everyone would like my
performance, and support the movie more, thank you everyone."
First time in a Hong Kong film, So-yeon said that she felt Hong
Kong film production's pace was quicker. Because this time was a guest
starring role, she hoped to officially work on a movie next time.
Cho Lam and Yanan spoke to the press together and Cho Lam
immediately told his wife to suck in her gut. Yanan said, "I am, but I
still have a belly. I just (gave birth) over a month ago." Cho Lam said,
"It doesn't mater, you are just as pretty." Having already seen the film,
Yanan was asked about her husband's directing debut. She had nothing but
praise. "Truly nothing but praise, he is full of talent, very cool, all
his aura radiated! I am very proud of him."
She also said that Cho Lam took her to see this play when they
just met. She even went with him to New York to negotiate its rights,
she truly was touched when she witnessed his dream came true. Why did
Cho Lam not arrange for Yanan to perform this time? He said, "At the time
Yanan was pregnant, later she had the baby, being able to successfully
give birth to our daughter Gabrielle was the most important. The most
important was to keep the baby safe. I didn't even permit her to visit
the set, since I was afraid of the dangers there. (Would you next time?)
Next time we might have another one, another scheduling conflict." Yanan
joked, "Then I am not having another, just joking."
Sister Mo in the film played 4 characters with 7 different
costumes. Even her husband could not recognize her. "The funniest was
after the trailer was released, my husband asked why I wasn't in it?
Actually he didn't recognize me! Because the hairstyle and performance
style were all different." Speaking of the most memorable look, Sister Mo
said that the 50F bust look was quite a heavy burden. She also had to
sing and dance in it, which gave her back pain as she struggled through
the scene. Although she has sung in movies before, this was a musical and
she had to seriously sing. Thus it was an enormous challenge.
The over 6 months pregnant Heung Heung revealed that in the film
she had a dance scene in the film, but before the shoot she did not tell
her husband. She believed that her would be able to accept it. She also
revealed that at the early stage of the shoot she was already pregnant,
but she did not realize until by the end of it. She was already a little
fat and the photographer asked if she could reduce her belly. At the time
she could only say she would try her best.
Would she return to Canada for the birth? She said that she still
has not decided yet, but more likely she would give birth in Hong Kong.
However she still has not booked a bed and knew that she needed to do it
as soon as possible. Thus she was a little stressed. Heung Heung said,
"I did some research, if possible I would like a natural birth. It's not
because I am brave, but because I am afraid of surgery and blood. A
natural birth won't be as terrifying. (Would your husband go to the
delivery room and cut the umbilical cord?) Probably, my husband is not
as afraid of blood as I am. I have to close my eyes even during a blood
draw and hold on to something hard. During the birth he probably would
be in pain with me, only his arm would hurt."
