Last year the pandemic severely impacted the film industry, One Cool Film and Emperor Motion Pictures announced their plan to produce and distribute ten Hong Kong films in two years. Among them the Au Cheuk Man directed SUET SIU JI YUN (THE PERSON WHO TELLS JOKES) was the first to start production, the cast included Ng Siu Hin, Ben Yuen Fu Wa and Ng Wing Sze. In the film Ng Siu Hin had to perform "stand up comedy", he admitted that he had no experience. At school a teacher wanted him to tell jokes in front of the class, the entire class had to laugh for him to stop. Finally he took the entire semester. He also pointed out that in the film he and Yuen Fu Wa would play father and son. He praised Yuen for gladly teaching others. Yuen Fu Wa's character had minor intellectual disability -- slightly language problem. He praised Hin Jai for being very hard working. Actually Hin Jai was his junior colleague at the Performing Art Academy. Before the shoot when they studied their characters they already had spark, the collaboration was very pleasant.
