Chloe So Ho Yi, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung and Wiyona Yeung Lau Ching earlier were guests on the TVB Entertainment News program STARTALK to discuss their experience on their new film SUGAR STREET STUDIO (TONG GAI JAI PIN CHONG). Yeung Lau Ching mentioned the massive amount of special effect make up in the new film. She said, "One morning the make up artist accidentally dropped some alcohol into my eye, which hurt and sting a lot. I couldn't open my eye at all. Because I was afraid that something would happen to my eye I immediately went to see a doctor, at the time I didn't have time to remove the make up. As soon as I got to the clinic I already lowered my head, since I was afraid of scaring people. When I went to the room to see the doctor, I already warned that I had special effect make up on my face. Maybe he didn't hear me. The first thing he said to me was, your face was burnt very severely!" Lau Ho Lung stated that the special effect make up was not easy to take.

So Ho Yi also took part and hoped to be able to play more different types of characters in the future. (Was she always playing a student?) She joked, "Now I can't even play a student again!" Si Hing joked, "No way! You can play my daughter!"

Artists Fish Liew Chi Yu, Louise Wong Dan Nei and Terrance Lau Chun Him earlier promoted their new film on Hong Kong Open Television. Wong Dan Nei for her film debut already played the diva of a generation Anita Mui Yim Fong, which she stated was destiny. She even revealed that at first when she was invited to the audition she thought it was a con. "I didn't feel I look like Sister Mui. They said that they thought my mouth resembled hers." As for the film also staring Louis Koo Tin Lok, Gordon Lam Ka Tung and others, she admitted that she had pressure. "But they were all great, very willing to share their experience with the younger generation. On the set they chatted and laughed, the atmosphere at work was a happy one."

The three Best Actors Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Sean Lau Ching Wan and Louis Koo Tin Lok starred film THE WHITE STORM 3 (SO DUK 3 TIN DAI DEI DAI) after frequent setbacks finally completed its production. The team went from Xixiangbanna to Shanwei, originally planning to then go to Thailand for a location shoot. Due to the pandemic the trip did not come to fruition, finally the company invested heavily on the construction of an almost 50,000 square meter Thai village in Lau Fau Shan, Hong Kong for production. After months of struggle, the grand scale production process finally came to a smooth completion. Kwok Fu Sing praised the Thai village for its realism, easily enabling people to get into the shoot. Lau Ching Wan on the other hand said that after completing the shoot he could finally shave.

The film THE WHITE STORM 3 on the day when Koo Tin Lok wrapped up production celebrated with a champagne ceremony with director Herman Yau Lai To, actors Kwok Fu Sing, Gallen Lo (Law Ka Leung), Chan Kwok Bong, Timmy Hung Tin Ming, Edward Chui Woei Dong and others at the almost 50,000 square meter Thai set in Lau Fau Shan, Hong Kong. Afterward, Kwok Fu Sing and Lau Ching Wan also wrapped up their production and again celebrated with champagne with Tse Kwan Ho, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung, James Kazama (Yau Jim Fai) and Kumor So (Fui Hung). Director Yau Lai To and Kwok Fu Sing embraced in celebration. Aside from appreciation, they even said that the collaboration has been pleasant. Director Yau stated, "This time working with Aaron has been a great experience. Now we are already starting to plan the next time."

Kwok Fu Sing was very happy about participating in THE WHITE STORM 3 production. "This time the film faced numerous challenges, but the entire team was very united. With the director we persisted with the production, as we resolved difficulties when we ran into them. Although it was tough, the shoot was also very pleasant!" Aaron said that working with Director Yau for the first time, he really admired his cool and adaptability. As for each actor in the film, because of 4 months together everyone built great chemistry and hoped to have the chance to work together again. On the night of the wrap, everyone were reluctant to part. Aaron also praised the team for building the nearly 50,000 square meter Thai drug village in Hong Kong, an awe-inspiring feat. He said, "They even grew trees from the 'Golden Triangle', which made me feel like I was there. It was very realistic, which made getting into the roles easier for everyone. Ultimately working with people who love movies is happiness, I wish THE WHITE STORM 3 would be seen by the audience very soon and for everyone to go to the movies to support it."

On the day of the wrap, Lau Ching Wan prepared many bottles of champagne to share with the cast and the crew. After completing the shoot he changed into casual clothes and appeared to much lighter. Aside from being able to properly rest, he also stated that he would shave the beard he grew for months for the movie. He said, "When I get back I can shave, I am very happy because this movie experienced a lot. We couldn't shoot on the location that we wanted, which instead made everyone constantly dine together. Normal productions very rarely had these times. They just kept shooting, very rarely would they be like this time when everyone constantly saw each other. The advantage was that everyone became familiar and united. I believe that this flavor would seep out from the movie."

Tse Kwan Ho, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung, James Kazama (Yau Jim Fai) and Kumer So (Fui Hung) also rather enjoyed the friends that they made this time. Everyone looked forward to the new film and said that they were ready to participate again in THE WHITE STORM 4.

The film LUI YING OI HUP (INSIDE RESPONE OUTSIDE COORDINATION) yesterday held a production start worship ceremony. The Emperor Group chief Albert Yeung Sau Sing led the actors Angus Yeung Tin Yue, Macy Ma Sihui, Candy Yu On On, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Deep Ng Ho Hong and Jacquelin Chong Si Man attended. Ng Ho Hong and Chong Si Man went their separate ways ten years ago, but working together again was not awkward at all for them as they talked and laughed. Ng Ho Hong also revealed that he had a nasal operation and his health has improved.

New comers Yeung Tin Yue and Ma Sihui played the leads for the first time. They both said that they would turn the stress into motivation. Because before the shoot they had to train for a month, they were much more confident. Yeung Tin Yue pointed out that he trained like professional athletes, and had to train on the streets. In the end before the performance he already lost 11 pounds. When he walked he felt like he was floating on air. However during the shoot he had injuries on his neck, leg and finger. Ma Sihui was somewhat apologetic when he said, "In the film I hit him. Once I had to kick him three times in a row, but I accidentally kick where he was injured earlier. Before the start of the shoot to now I at least kicked him over 100 times!"

Yeung Tin Yue chuckled. "Originally the kick was to the chest, but I was kicked right where I was injured -- near the crotch without any padding. She even got me every time!" He was bruised all over, then he would go for acupuncture therapy whenever he had time off. Ma Sihui said that she was already injured during training. In a leapfrog attempt, she fell into a split by accident when she landed. Thus she injured her thigh. Would she like to become an "action actress?" She said, "I thought about it, since I was three I haven't cut my hair as short as it is now. I want to try being an action actress!" After taking a few kicks from her, Yeung Tin Yue joked, "You definitely can, with such powerful kicks!"

Chong Si Man and Ng Ho Hong have already broken up for 10 years, but they have not worked together until recently in the film LUI YING OI HUP. However they would not have any scene together. Although they have not seen each other in a long time, yesterday they still chatted. They both knew that the other would be in the film, but they would not mind since they were still friends. Even if they would have future opportunities to work together they would not have any problem. However if they would have to play a couple, they would decide after considering the script and the salary. Chong Si Man is married, when would it be Ng Ho Hong's turn? Ng Ho Hong said, "Later, I have to work hard first!" As for his rumor with Margiela Kwok Si Lam, he lightly glossed over it. "We are in contact!" Would Chong Si Man care about her ex's love life? She said, "I wouldn't gossip about other people's affair, he is grown and feels more mature!"

In the film, Chong Si Man would not have any fight scene opportunity. Mainly she would be elegant and sexy. However earlier she still accepted the training and injured her inner thigh; Ng Ho Hong said that he would fight from the beginning to the end, and he too injured his inner thigh during the training. In addition, Ng Ho Hong earlier had nasal cavity surgery. "Actually the problem has been around for three or four years, I could only breathe through the mouth. Each time when I was preparing for the operation I got jobs, which dragged it only for a year or two. Now I breathe much easier, no runny nose or acid reflux, my voice is cleared up too!"

courtesy of mingpao.com

The film THE YOUNG, THE OLD AND THE RICH (GEIN NEI DEI DOH SAT YUN SI GEIN) started a HK$ 10 million crowdfunding project, the goal of which was to make a movie that would be completely funded by the audience. Director Ronnie Chau (Chiu Law Nei) invited Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Zeno Koo Ting Hin to shoot the teaser that introduced the film's content and production style. Yesterday was the deadline but the goal was not reached.

Director Chiu Law Nei chose "all or nothing", no fund would be collected if the goal was not reached; he once explained the reason for setting the goal at HK$ 10 million. He said that if successful, 10% commission would be given to the crowdfunding platform. The rest would be used for building a platform for online broadcast, sending memorabilia and other expenses -- leaving around HK$ 6 million for the film production; as of yesterday's deadline, only 1/3 of the goal was reached.

In the teaser Wong Chau Sun played a driving instructor, and Koo Ting Hin his student. The former's real identity was an underground group mastermind who arranged for a group of young people to commit crimes. Koo Ting Hin's role due to societal oppression became lost and was recruited by Chau Sun to join the underground group.

The film ANITA's production special program premiere took place yesterday. Actors Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Fish Liew Chi Yu, Harriet Yeung Sze Man along with director Longman Leung attended; both Ka Lok, who played Adam Cheng Siu Chau in the film, and Fish, who played Anna Mui Oi Fong, said that the most difficult and stressful was singing.

Ka Lok pointed out that this time in the film he had to sing and dance. Due to his lack of coordination, when he danced he looked like a crab. Only during the audition, he studied Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's performance, memorized the simple dance steps and was able to fool the director in believing that he was able to sing and dance. "Actually if I was a singer, I probably would disgrace the music scene. So I wouldn't seriously become a singer!" Chau Guoon back then was known as "ribs Chau", before his performance was Ka Lok asked to lose weight? He said no, and he felt that during the performance he was bloated. "I really like to impersonate people, but imitating the way Chau Guoon speaks, as well as singing a Japanese song and dance, the degree of difficulty reached 9.0!" Ka Lok joked that in order to play the role well, he spent over HK$ 600 on two Japanese lessons. He had to be resemble the original performer and linger between the edge of being off key and not off key.

Fish also said that she liked to sing, but she has not reached the quality of being a singer. In particular she has seen many singer's quality performance but still received negative reviews online. Thus she knew where she stood and was afraid to be a singer. Fish also pointed out that at first during her audition she was asked to perform a scene from ROUGE and sing SORROWS ON AN AUTUMN TRIP. Because singing in Nanyin was very difficult, she took a lesson with an instructor. It cost a rather hefty HK$ 790. She also in order played the role of Mui Oi Fong well bought one of Mui Oi Fong's out of print CDs before the performance. she also watched her movies and studied from Anita Mui Yim Fong's interviews about her relationship with her sister.

The film THE ATTORNEY (YUT CUP JI HUNG) two nights ago held its premiere. Actors Alex Fong Chung Shun, Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Nina Paw Hee Ching and Himmy Wong Ting Him attended. Earlier while celebrating his wife Hoyan Mok's birthday, Fong Chung Shun wore a HK$ 2 million watch. He immediately pulled up his sleeve to show that his watch was only worth HK$ 2000. However he admitted that the HK$ 2 million watch he wore he only bought for an investment. He also collected some watches at home. He joked, "However lately I have been over budget, I no longer bought watches!" Did he give his wife a watch for her birthday? He said, "Of course I gave the most recent hit phone, every year at this time there would be a new release. It is also worth me not having to put any thought into it!"

Chan Ka Lok immediately took the opportunity to kiss up, "I learned something." He did not expect Fong Chung Shun to ask, "Did you get married? How long have you been dating?" Always avoided talking about his love life, Ka Lok immediately acted awkwardly, "Don't talk about stuff like that! The film itself took several years to make." Fong Chung Shun continued to have fun at his expense. "You Brother Lok is single and has so many female fans!" Ka Lok could only beg for mercy. "You are Brother Shun, you really like to joke around with me!" He pointed out that at the time he worked with "Brother Shun" for the first time and was very afraid of him. He felt that when he did not speak he looked like a killer. "I don't dare to look into his eyes, I would panic like I did something wrong." Fong Chung Shun kept playing with Ka Lok, "When you answer my questions, you tell the truth. Then you wouldn't have to dodge my eyes!" Ka Lok could only change directions and praised that after getting to know him he actually was funny and humorous. However he pleaded with "Brother Shun" to not call him "Brother Lok" again. "People would talk, you only only address Lau Tak Wa like this!" Fong Chung Shun disagreed, "In the film this time I was called Lui Yau Fai, would I be banned from singing Tai Chi's songs!"

THE ATTORNEY also starred the late artist Dick Liu Kai Chi. Fong Chung Shun and Chan Ka Lok both have worked with Uncle Chi three times. Fong Chung Shun said, "Uncle Chi is my heart, I also believe that in and out of the industry no one would say anything bad about him!" Chan Ka Lok said that Uncle Chi was a good elder, as long as he was willing to ask Uncle Chi would share very gladly. However unfortunately when he taught classes he did not have time to attend, and he did not have the opportunity to officially become his student.

Tze Wa and Ronald's new film would be Lunar New Year competition, but they did not feel that they would dueling each other. Tze Wa even wished that this year's Lunar New Year would be able to all be big hits!

This year the Ronald starred Lunar New Year film HAP GA LAT would face off against the Tze Wa starred Lunar New Year film, both the two did not feel that they were at a duel. Tze Wa said that in the past several decades Lunar New Year films have been very entertaining, the audience would watch all of the Lunar New Year films even when the year had 5 or 6 of them. He said, "I feel watching Lunar New Year films seems to be a responsibility, every year after the Lunar New Year dinner we would get tickets to watch Lunar New Year films. If we couldn't get them we would wait until we did. I wish this year the Lunar New Year films would be able to become big hits."

Would Tze Wa work with Ronald on an artist prank show? He humbly said that the talent tht he had was very slow, while Ronald had the quick type like a race car. However, he also said, "We definitely would have the opportunity to work together and mess with people. When two people mess with friends it is also a lot of fun."

Ronald said that his quick wit was only "superficial", only slow had depth as he flipped around to praise Tze Wa. They also said that they have worked together before, with Cheng Chung Kei as the director. However so far they still had no idea when it would be release. Tze Wa also looked forward to them working together again, hoping that the next time it would be his turn to direct.

[ THE FILM CATALOGUE ]
    This film is based on the story of So Wa Wai, the medal-winning Paralympic athlete. It teaches audiences that even people who "lose on the starting line" can achieve victory as long as they persist.

    Soon after birth, Wai was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, which made him hard of hearing and even unable to walk normally. But under a strict training regimen from his mother, Wai eventually learned how to walk and was even invited into the Hong Kong Disabled Track and Field Team. Wai has participated in multiple Paralympic Games and won many gold medals. To this day, he is still the record holder for men's 100-meter and 200-meter at the Paralympics. For his achievements, he has earned the nickname "Wizard Boy".

    Wai wanted to be a full-time athlete, but due to his father's work injury, he chooses to become a courier instead to support his family. He tries to balance between work and training, but his mother begins to arrange ad appearances and paid appearances on his behalf. Soon, he falls out with Fong, his coach, for neglecting his training, and he begins to fight back against his mother's control. At the 2008 Paralympic Games, Wai finds himself under unprecedented pressure from the match and his fallout with his mother.

    Fortunately, Wai repaired his relationship with his mother, and he received encouragement from his father and fellow competitors before the match. In the end, he not only wins the race, but also sets a new world record for the men's 200-meter sprint. As he stands on the podium with pop hit "Boundless Sky" playing in the background, he finds himself filled with pride as all 90,000 people inside the Bird's Nest sing along with the song.

    But Wai actually has a more important motivation for winning the gold medal: Wai wants to share the gold medal with his mother, who didn't have a piece of gold when she got married. Now, she can finally proudly wear the gold that she's waited her entire adult life for.
