The Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Simon Yam Tat Wa and Taiwan star Megan Lai starred film DISCONNECT'D (DUEN MONG) has run into trouble after trouble. Last year in April it began production during the pandemic, then due to financing issues the production needed to be suspended. Later the issue was resolved and the production resumed. It wrapped in October last year. Originally after completing post production it would be released; but lately it was rumored that because the film was not perfect, producer Soi Cheang Pou Soi immediately "blew the whistle" for additional shoots! Because it involved a dozen or so units, stars' schedule coordination became a major problem. Luckily Sing Sing, Yam Tat Wa, Gordon Lam Ka Tung and others overcame the obstacles to coordinate. Sing Sing even would work on movie after movie and use all his resources to make room in his schedule. After the additional shoots for the film he would jump into his new film.
As for Gordon Lam Ka Tung, who is still working with Louis Koo Tin Lok on BEYOND THE SIN (NGOK HUNG Ji OI), he still got the team's "help" to rush the production of his scenes so he would have time for the additional shoots for DISCONNECT'D. The film industry showed its united side.
DISCONNECT'D had problems and required additional shoots. Producer Cheang Pou Soi said, "Actually additional shoots are very normal. Several of my movies had additional shoots. (Sing Sing's schedule is very hard to work with, even he helped out immediately?) That's right, Aaron has been great. Everyone has been very helpful. (Simon) Yam Tat Wa and Lam Ka Tung also had additional shoots." He revealed that at the current stage only Lam Ka Tung was missing one day of the shoot. The other actors have already completed their parts. As for the release date, he said, "Because the post production would require half a year, for now nothing has been set."
