Justin Cheung Kin Sing in recent years has gained and lost weight for films and series numerous times. Earlier he showed a big belly photo on social media and revealed that his weight was over 200 pounds. Occasionally he would have stomach pain. Many asked him to be careful with his health. Actually he was working hard on gaining weight for a new film character, the goal was to gain from 180 to 220 pounds. He already gained 20 pounds in a month. He said, "Honestly it is harmful to the body. I would get tired easily, sleepy, eat until my stomach hurts, have stomach cramps, occasionally I had to take stomach medication to stop the pain. However I plan to gain 30 some pounds. It isn't impossible. In March I will turn 38. Since I have the ability I would do it first."
This time the new film would be Hong Kong wuxia films from the 1960s to 1980s. Cheung Kin Sing would play a director whose talent has been overlooked. He was sloppy. The director tailored the character for him. He really liked the script and felt it was worth gaining weight for. Stepping in 2021, Cheung Kin Sing left the company he has worked with for 9 years, thanked his boss Stephen Shiu Jr. for giving him a lot of opportunities and being his benefactor.
