Tony Wong Yuk Long's classic domestic comic book DRAGON TIGER GATE will celebrate its 50th anniversary in publishing. Watch company founder William Shum Wai Lam invited Wong Yuk Long to work together on the release of a "Tiger Might Tourbillon Wrist Watch" with protagonist Tiger Wong as the blue print. Yesterday a press conference was held at the Animation Comic Game Hong Kong event at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. Wong Yau Nam also showed his support.
Wong Yuk Long and Shum Wai Lam have known each other for some time. Years ago Wong Yuk Long was already invited to collaboration, but he kept waiting for a good opportunity. The 50th anniversary of DRAGON's publishing was the most worthy of the commemoration, thus they conceived the most explosive work. Shum Wai Lam said that he has always been waiting for the opportunity to work together. This plan took over 1 year. He would hope to have an opportunity to release watches of other DRAGON TIGER GATE characters.
Currently Wong Yuk Long is planning to release DRAGON TIGER GATE television and film products that with mainly Hong Kong investors. Productions will begin next year and he already had some ideas about casting. Some possibly might be the previous DRAGON film's actors. No decision has been made. Would he ask Shum Wai Lam to guest star? Shum said, "I don't have the talent, I am better off sticking with making watches." Wong Yuk Lam suggested for him to play a playboy character, as only the opposite of reality would be challenging.
