The family comedy TABLE FOR SIX (FAN HEI GUNG SUM) since its release has made over HK$ 72 million and admission over 1.08 million viewers to become the 2022 Hong Kong film with the most admission. To thank the over 1 million viewers who attended TABLE FOR SIX and to reward the people of Hong Kong, Edko Film on November 6th would treat everyone to ride the number 1 bus line between Chuk Yuen Estate and Tsim Sha Tsui Pier, and number 108 bus line between Kai Yip Estate and Braemar Hill since the film became "No. 1" in Hong Kong film admission and reached "1.08" million viewers. The 6 leads would be featured on the themed buses in various districts and 6 buses would go all over Hong Kong for 4 weeks starting early November. The cast would attend a press conference on November 5th at the Kowloon Motor Bus Lai Chi Kok Depot.

One of the leads Louis Cheung Kai Chung said, "I have never thought about having a film that could have such an awesome performance. Before gathering my thoughts, the only feeling I have is appreciation, thank you everyone for seemingly completely a wonderful journey, thank you to each viewer who attended." Ah Chung kept his promise and "pay the bill" on social media, posting a "top class half fat and thin" and "training to the fittest" photo comparison. He said, "72 million, thank you everyone. Paying the bill is just paying the bill, what's the matter? For roast pork......some like fat, some like meaty, Viewers I present the! Top! Class! Half! Fat! Thin! Thank you!"

Director Sunny Chan Wing Sun admitted that he took the bus the most out of everyone on the team. "70 million was a very dreamy number, I thank every viewer who supported us." He also said that treating everyone to the bus ride would be the most relatable way to thank the audience. He hoped that everyone would have fun from the ride.

Dayo Wong Tze Wa said, "I have already been the box office poison for 18 years. Each time when I represented a movie in public, I didn't want everyone to target this part of me. Suddenly I have a 70 million box office number, at the same time I was reminded of English actor Ricky Gervais's reminders to actors at an award show. Actually no one cares about you, after you win an award you can just say thank you and leave the stage. So I wouldn't flaunt too much, I should be secretly happy after reaching 70 million and loudly say thank you to everyone. 70 million represented 1 million viewers. This feeling is enormous. I sensed 1 million people's joy and affection. To me it is very solid. Our destiny with these 1 million viewers made us feel that we should treat everyone to a bus ride."

Stephy Tang Lai Yan also felt that the good box office performance was like a dream. She never thought that it would reach 70 million at the box office and broke many box office records of comedy films that she grew up with. She also thanked the audience. "I completely get that unity is power, because of each person's power the miracle has happened. I haven't taken the bus in over a decade. When I was in school my favorite thing was to ride the upper deck and check out the scenery. Now with the free bus ride I want to ride it even more."

Ivana Wong Yuen Chi also promised to write a song once the film reached HK$ 70 million at the box office. She said that she would remember to "pay the bill" and said, "Speaking of taking the bus, I wouldn't just take the bus. I even have a bus driver license." "Third Brother" Peter Chan Charm Man said that he was very thankful to be able to participate in this production. Lin Minchen said, "Sai Fei Lei." and reminded everyone to find the Ah Miao bus for photo opportunities.

The recent release THE SPARRING PARTNER (JING YI WUI LONG) also caught attention. Although its opening day box office was only around HK$ 200,000, with the word of mouth as of October 30th its box office reached HK$ 3.24 million. Two days ago its single day box office even neared HK$ 900,000.


Hins Cheung takes time to meet with his fans

Hins Cheung King Hin has been busy with his Lunar New Year film CHIU SUN GAING HAI GIP ONG (SUPER CRAZY ARMED ROBBERY CASE) and has not appeared in public in a long time. Yesterday he attended a beverage event and drew almost 100 fans. Due to the lack of sleep from being so busy, Hin Jai joked that he got pimples but lost color from his face. However he was rather happy to be able to work with a group of young fresh meat and from the new generation learned a lot. He also gave credit to Jeffrey Ngai for being very hard working and maintained the rare innocence.

Speaking of CHIU as Hin Jai's first film as the lead actor, after sweeping all the music awards has he thought about winning Best Actor? He joked that singing has been much more comfortable and joked that he indeed has thought about winning Best Actor before, but now he felt that making a movie was a beautiful wish. In the future if he would have the opportunity to make another he would grasp the opportunity, but it would depend on his health. Because of his major role, he would start working from 3 AM. Even if he got off work early, he might not be able to go to sleep. Thus every night he has been only able to sleep for 3 to 4 hours. Although his weight has not changed, his face lost color and he got pimples. He added, "However I am very happy, this time working with young fresh meat like Jeffrey Ngai, Kaho Hung and others. From them I learned a lot of the new generation's working methods and ideas. Now working in the internet age we can't just follow the same old rules. So I wouldn't too quickly put myself into the 'old seafood' category." He pointed out that everyone had a lot of fun from working together, and praised Jeffrey Ngai for being very nice and hard working, not afraid of being taken advantage of and so far still able to maintain his innocence.

Hin Jai also revealed, "The film has many action scenes, including a gun fight with a dozen or so people, explosions, punches and kicks and wires; originally the team prepared a double, but the group of new generation personally performed everything and made me and (Ivana) Wong Yuen Chi also perform ourselves. Even I have never seen Wong Yuen Chi fight, other than when she hits me, ha! Ha! The director also thus added a lot of action scene for each person, so the budget and the schedule would definitely be exceeded. Next week we would shoot the major fight scenes."

Speaking of Hin Jai originally was to captain a radio station basketball game, but in order to accommodate one group's schedule the game was postponed and neglected Hin Jai's film schedule. Thus he would be unable to participate and the treatment was less than fair. Hin Jai admitted that he has heard some noise outside, but he personally had another opinion. "Indeed it is somewhat regrettable, I earlier even accepted special training with the Hong Kong basketball team coach to prepare, I know they invited (Leo) Ku Kui Kei to return. I look forward to that very much as well. Before hand, everyone had discussion. Since I was an individual, they were a group, the basketball  game had to have everyone. Without them they couldn't make a team. The music industry has to accommodate each other, even though I couldn't participate this time I could do it next time. Also, CHIU is a company investment, it must come first. Actually it just isn't the basketball game, I couldn't work some money making jobs either."

Kay Tse On Kay, Natalie Tong Sze Wing, Larine Tang Yueping, ANSONBEAN and others yesterday attended their film A HIDDEN SPY (NGOR DAI DIK TUI YUN SUN WOOT) production start. Working with a new generation of actors, Kay and Sze Wing both said that they would not have any generation gap.

Speaking of working with Larine who is 21 years her junior, Kay said that this would be the first time she would have such a grown daughter on screen. "I remember at the first meeting, I counted and actually I really could be Pingping's Mommy. At my actual age I could have had her." However the age difference did not hinder their communication. Kay praised Larine for being attentive. "Before work she would bring us a lot of healthy herbal packs and a lot of snacks for everyone. I thought she really had a lot of love. On screen I took care of her, but off screen she took great care of the entire team." Larine pointed out that in the film Kay would be very strict with her, but off screen their personalities were just the opposite. In the film she would have her share of fight scenes, before the production began she removed fat, exercised and went on a lighter diet. She successfully lost 6 kilograms and now she is only 42 kilograms. She said that at their first costume fitting she saw Kay and was surprised that her face was very small and young, she did not dare to look directly at Kay and at the same time she felt that she needed to lose weight.

As for Sze Wing who rarely worked with young fresh meat, this time she would work with the only 21 year old ANSONBEAN. She said that earlier during the table read she already felt that he had a lot of ideas. "Working with him would be very pleasant, I hope to set off a lot of spark." Would she want to add some romance? They both said no. Sze Wing said, "I don't need this! I am almost twice his age! (Do you like romance with a younger man?) I would be OK, but it wouldn't be anything special. His eyes are small and he is pretty cute, unlike the usual Korean guy." ANSONBEN said that he would take the opportunity to learn from television Best Actress Sze Wing. "I want to ask her about how to design a character." Tong Wing Sze would play a karate master and with the pastor in training ANSONBEAN would fight off a sexual predator.

Director Ho Cheuk Tin adapts the 2013 Tai Kok Tsui murdered parents case into THE SPARRING PARTNER

New director Ho Cheuk Tin's first feature film THE SPARRING PARTNER (JING YI WUI LONG) starred Jan Lamb Hoi Fung, Louisa So Yuk Wa, Yeung Wai Lun and Mak Pui Tung. Based on the 2013 "Tai Kok Tsui son murdered parents case" that rocked Hong Kong. Ho Cheuk Tin's mentors were directors Dante Lam Chiu Yin and Philip Yung Tsz Kwong. From them he learned a lot and received a lot of inspiration. His first feature film ws not as difficult as he imagined, thanks to Yung Tsz Kwong giving a lot of advice and even helping with editing. In recent years Hong Kong film industry had a flood of new directors, which Ho Cheuk Tin felt was a good thing. This industry needed new blood and the competition could be positive. Only with the chance to make movies would they improve. Hong Kong film recently received viewer support, but he worried that it would just be a mirage. He hoped that the audience would continue to support domestic productions.

Ho Cheuk Tin revealed that adapting the "Tai Kok Tsui son murdered parents case" was producer Yung Tsz Kwong's idea. In 2016 he met Yung Tsz Kwong from working on UNDER THE LION ROCK (SI JI SHAN HA). Later he worked at his office as an assistant director and screenwriter. At the time the Yung Tsz Kwong directed mystery film PORT OF CALL (DAP HUET CHUM MUI) was in release and became a hot topic. Many mystery fans suggested cases and ideas that could be made, finally he felt that this Tai Kok Tsui case was rich in drama. The suspect once shot videos to call for people's help to look for his parents, but soon he was uncovered as a possible culprit. The case led to a lot of discussions online. With all the intrigue during the court trial, it was suitable for making into a movie.

What made this movie intriguing was that it was complex, controversial and had a very high degree of solvability. Ho Cheuk Tin said that the film involved elements like the people, the money, the source of the family problem and the friendship between the murderer and the accomplice. In the film the culprit Cheung Hin Chung had a lot of emotional scenes, accomplice Tong Man Kei also puzzled people. Yeung Wai Lun and Mak Pui Tung had a lot of room to perform, however because they came from the stage their methods of expression were more exaggerated. This time for the movie they needed a little time to adjust, like asking Mak Pui Tung to lie in bed and breathlessly speak over the phone. He would have to give up the performance method of speaking loudly. However they very quickly got used to it.

Ho Cheuk Tin revealed that he cast Yeung Wai Lun as the star as the strong recommendation of Philip Yung Tsz Kwong, because he used stage actor Michael Ning (Bak Ji) in PORT OF CALL (DAP HUET CHUM MUI) very successfully and even won the Hong Kong Film Award and the Golden Horse Award Bes Supporting Actor. He proved that stage actors have certain substance. In addition Yeung Wai Lun was size wise was short and small, rather similar to the real person. He believed that he had the ability to master the character. Yeung Wai Lun recommended Mak Pu Tung to play the accomplice, because they have worked together many times before. Their real life friendship was suitable for use in this film and they also had great chemistry.

Ho Cheuk Tin said, "Aside from using stage actors, I also invited (Jan) Lamb Hoi Fung, (Louisa) So Yuk Wa, (Michael) Chow Man Kin and others to help. They haven't made a movie in awhile, so they hold an attraction over the audience. Thus producer Yung Tsz Kwong and I aren't worried about the box office."

The film is 120 minutes long. Ho Cheuk Tin hoped to display the beginning to the end of the entire case with authenticity. He said that his first feature film was not as difficult as he has imagined, because he worked with Lam Chiu Yin on two films UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN) and TO THE FORE (POR FUNG). He also worked as an executive director for Yung Tsz Kwong's WHERE THE WIND BLOWS (FUNG JOI HEI SI) and for Radio and Television Hong Kong. He said, "I really admire Lam Chiu Yin's passion, from him I learned to do everything myself and to be efficient in handling things; Yung Tsz Yung also inspired me, his character depictions were outstanding, his ways of thinking also had a very wide range. Whether in production or editing he has done very well. Everyone often neglect editing, actually editing can help elevate the film effects and show their best. This time I am the director, Yung Tsz Kwong gave me a lot of advice and even helped with editing."

Ho Cheuk Tin said that the only thing hard to handle was the court scene. This part took up half the movie, but with only 6 days to shoot and resource was limited. Every second counted and the challenge was enormous. He said, "The real trial wasn't just as a war of words. I don't want the courtroom scenes to be dull, so I turned the camera from the court to the crime scene and reenact the occurrence of the case. I also added historical war footage, to make the visuals richer. Many people felt I was greedy, going all the way with the first film. Maybe there wouldn't be a second time."

Recently some Hong Kong films have become big hits, Ho Cheuk Tin also worried whether it would just be a mirage. He said, "In the first half year due to the pandemic, cinemas were closed and no movie was released. Movies that were done were all postponed for release in the second half of the year, everyone has been starving for movies for a long time. I don't know whether it was just a slight rebound. I hope Hong Kong viewers' passion would not fade, as they would continue to support domestic production." He predicted that returning to the glory days of several hundred movies produced every year would be hard. "I am very envious that past directors made several movies a year. I am considered lucky, I have already made my second movie OVER MY DEAD BODY (SEI SI SEI SI SEI SUP SEI). Only with the opportunity to make movies would I improve. If the market would grow double its current production rate it would already be great."

Sammy Sum Chun Hin recently headed north for work. With the novel coronavirus, he needed to stay in the Mainland for a long time. After working on a movie with Gillian Chung Yun Tung in the Mainland, he by chance signed with Emperor Entertainment and was arranged to return to Hong Kong to make a movie.

Returning to the Hong Kong film industry, Shum Chun Hin happily said, "I like making movies. The company says that the next few movies would be suitable for me. I really appreciate the boss for giving me the chance. I was a free agent before, I negotiated jobs through the office I set up. From it I learned a lot. Now I have signed with another company, the advantage is the company would arrange for everything. I can focus on acting." He said that this time he could say that he returned to Emperor. In 2006 when he returned to Hong Kong from Canada, he participated in the Emperor New Talent singing contest and got into the business. Then he joined TVB. As for singing, he still had passion for it and has been writing songs all along. Thus he might sing again.

Shum Chun Hin has been much fitter than before, because in recent years he would work out for two hours everyday. Because he got thin very easily, he did not need to watch his diet. Instead he would have to eat like mad. He also revealed that he would spend a year to strengthen his training as he planned to participate in the Mr. Fitness contest at the end of the year. If he had the chance he would even want to go to compete in the U.S., and he would not mind wearing the super small bikini briefs for display on the stage.

Shum Chun Hin said, "Maybe because I am an actor, I have a stronger ability to accept. Although I could wear beach pants, only bikini briefs could display every inch of the body without leaving anything out. It really would be prettier. When I made the movie LAN KWAI FONG (HEI OI YEH PO) I wore nude underwear to perform, on camera it looked like I was fully nude. I also don't mind full nudity, mainly it would depend on the script. Actors would be attracted to the script, if they feel it is fun and necessary why not give it a try. Of course I have to respect whether the other half would be able to accept it."

Always thinking about starting a business, Shum Chun Hin would turn fitness into a career as he would co-fund fitness center and beauty salon with friends. He would be the living brand. He said, "I want to tell people, if I can you can too. As long as you are willing to take the first time and have the determination then you would get into shape. Back then when I played a soldier in TVB's ALL THAT IS BITTER IS SWEET, the producer often told me to get bigger and said that when I put on the military jacket I felt too thin, too flimsy, luckily my shoulders weren't considered narrow."

Shum Chun Hin and girlfriend Shirley Chan Yan Yin are often in two different places, fortunately their relationship has not been harmed. He appreciated that his girlfriend for keeping things at home orderly and for understanding him for going north for work. "We are very compatible. She changed me a lot, made me happier and not so stubborn with so many things. Now I am only stubborn with performance and work, other things that are beyond my control I wouldn't think about them much. Sometimes relaxing instead would have better results." After 5 years with Shirley, their relationship has been steady. He admitted that they had plans to wed, and would not eliminate the possibility of tying the knot next year. "It wouldn't be too lte, but first I have to plan a surprise proposal. Girlfriend ultimately likes romance."

Natalie Tong Sze Wing, Joel Chan Shan Chung, Moon Lau Pui Yuet, Tiffany Lau Wing Shuen and others yesterday promoted their new series I'VE GOT THE POWER.

Already left TVB, Tong Sze Wing made the rare return to help with the promotion. She said that she was busy with a new film and believed that she might not be able to appear again in future promotions. Speaking of her new film, Sze Wing said that because she signed a confidentiality agreement she could not reveal too much. She could only say it would be a dark humor comedy. "I have a sense of humor, the character would have a little action. Luckily earlier when I made the series I performed some fight scenes." Sze Wing said that making a series and making a movie were not too different, one day's movie call would last very long, but the time used in the production would be very short. She very quickly was able to get used to it. Sze Wing's biggest wish was stepping foot on the stage. When asked about her preparation, she said, "I have already begun writing a script, but only the synopsis. Later I would hand it over to professional screenwriters to help me finish and adapt it to the stage. Maybe it is one or two years before completion." Sze Wing said that with suitable characters she would not mind personally performing, but she would not mind for other people to perform either. The most important was to be able to complete her wish to participate in a play, which she would already be very satisfied with.

The Teresa Mo Shun Kwan, Gardner Tse Kwan Ho, Edan Lui Cheuk On, Hedwig Tam Sin Yin, Angela Yuen Lai Lam, Anson Lo Hon Ting, and Fung So Bo starred film HONG KONG FAMILY (GOR SI GOR JIK) opened on November 24th. After the world premiere early in the month at the Busan Film Festival, it also opened the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival. Yesterday the film company announced that previews will be held on November 12th. The first wave of advanced screenings would have almost 1,000 tickets, which began available at noon. In half a hour it was sold out!

Sister Mo even publicly expressed her love for the director in the production special. "Eric (director Tsang Hing Weng) I really, really love you. I very rarely say I love a director. This screenplay is his own story. Because of the understanding, everyone is full of chemistry." Edan and Anson Lo both agreed that working with the director has been rather pleasant. Anson Lo said, "The director doesn't put on any air at all, very easy going and also very easy to talk to."

The Nick Cheung Ka Fai, William Chan Wai Ting, Shaun Tam Chun Yin and Chrissie Chau Sau Na starred film BAU LIT DIM (EXPLOSION POINT) two days ago had an accident while shooting in Gua Tempurung in Malaysia. Due to a downpour the water level rapidly rose to as high as 1.5 meters, over 300 production team members including Chau Sau Na, Tam Chun Yin and others were trapped inside the cavern and needed to contact the police for help. Firefighters rushed to the scene for the rescue. The workers outside the cavern assisted with rope to pull out the crew one by one. After 3 hours all of the member were saved without any injury.

Because Cheung Ka Fai was not trapped, many people thought he was not present. Actually at the time he was waiting to shoot the ending, he was resting in the vehicle. Originally the crew asked him to wait inside the cavern, but because it was close to meal time they changed their mind and spared Ka Fai. Ka Fai yesterday, because the crew was already safe, humorously said, "At the time the situation was rather critical, everyone flew to dodge it......that was just my imagination!" Then he seriously said, "The water level indeed rose very fast, the crew help each other to leave. However because the water level really rose too fast, very quickly it reached their thighs. So we asked the local police for help. Now I wish the most for the shoot to be nice and smooth from now on, and everyone would be able to go home safe."

Despite the scare, the scene was not completed two days ago. Thus the team yesterday entered the cavern. Tam Chun Yin yesterday recalled the frightening moment. "At the time I was lying in the water, but more and more water flooded in. Very quickly it turned into a rapid, but we were all very cool as we left in an orderly fashion." The accident worried many. He was a little sorry about that. "William sent a message asking if we were OK. The families were very worried. We were fine, very safe. Now the production has already resumed." Because he had to constantly be in the water, the team prepared a lot of mountain climbing warmth equipment for him. He said that on the Lunar New Year's Day he worked on the Changbai Mountain in 20 some degrees below zero Celsius. This time I toughed out a flood and being trapped in a cavern. The year has been rather unforgettable."

Chau Sau Na returned to the hotel to rest after the rescue and slept until the next morning. "When I got up I was surprised to see so many messages, I never thought that I would make everyone so worried. During the shoot as soon as I saw the water level rose, we immediately retreated to higher ground. At the time we didn't know to be scared. Several minutes later, the water level already reached our thighs, we even got to get into the water and pull the rope to go back outside. Due to how rapid the water was going, I couldn't get stable footing and only got scared when I was almost washed away. Luckily only because everyone were watching out for each other we were all safe." Yesterday she posted a photo from the one day tour earlier. "I am safe, thank you everyone for your concern."

BAU's producer Leung Fung Ying said that Chau Sau Na's scenes originally would have been done two days ago, thus the team prepared champagne to celebrate. However before the champagne was brought out, Chau Sau Na, Tam Chun Yin and others were in trouble. When they were rescued they all became "mud people". Luckily they were more scared than hurt. Although the production has run into numerous obstacles, she was confident that the film would be able to wrap up production before the end of the month.

Completing his shoot the day before, William Chan Wai Ting said that when he saw the new he was very nervous and worried. He immediately called Cheung Ka Fai. "I passed by the cavern entrance everyday, like when I changed clothes or went to the bathroom. When I saw the news although the team was not mentioned, as soon as I saw the entrance I recognized it. I hope the production would wrap up sooner and be completed smoothly, because this film has experience who knows how many obstacles with so many people injured."

He pointed out that the cavern was full of wet and uneven rocks. Many people including the producer were hurt. "He fell on his back and sprained his leg. After the medical team just bandaged his leg, his injured leg went 'crack'. I am not exaggerating! He really is a workaholic, as soon as his leg was wrapped he immediately looked for a camera spot to shoot me and even held the camera. His spirit is truly admirable for me. I told him, don't risk so much with only a few days left, he was taking more risks than the actors!"

"Brother Ho was shy about getting intimate on the screen for the first time. I played a female ghost, brushing up from his belly. My hair made him very itchy and he couldn't stop laughing. We had several bad takes and shot again a few times."

Kwok Yik Sum received her boyfriend Brian's support at her new film's premiere. She told her boyfriend in advance about the kiss scene and the bed scene, her boyfriend also said that after watching if he would be upset he even told her not to mind. Thus she felt that her boyfriend was already very perfect and attentive. Kwok Yik Sum recently worked on a new series WARRIORS WITHIN 2 (DAI TIN HA 2) and lost some weight to look better in shape.

    The continued appearance of giant unidentified life forms known as "S-Class Species (Kaiju)" has become commonplace in Japan. Conventional weapons have no effect on them.

    The members chosen for the unit are: captain Kimio Tamura, strategic planner Shinji Kaminaga, unparticle physicist Akihisa Taki, and biologist Yumi Funaberi.

    In the midst of a Kaiju threat, a silver giant appears from beyond Earth's atmosphere. Analyst Hiroko Asami is newly appointed to the SSSP to deal with this giant and is partnered with Shinji Kaminaga. In Hiroko's report, she writes— "Ultraman (tentative name), identity unknown."

    It is often said that food and meals bring families together, but in TABLE FOR SIX it's clear that not all family gatherings are a cause for celebration. In this melodramatic comedy, three brothers reside in a home that they inherited from their late parents. The eldest brother Steve, theoretically is the man of the house, but he constantly is getting dissed by his two younger brothers Bernard and Lung for the decisions he makes, the inedible meals that he cooks, and his complicated romantic encounters. To prepare for a family reunion dinner, Steve seeks the help of Lung’s girlfriend and foodie Josephine and in doing so, wins back their hearts for a while, until his old flame and Bernard’s new girlfriend Monica shows up. That's a recipe for a disaster waiting to explode! The unexpected visit of Steve's part-time girlfriend Meow not only fails to turn down the heat and cool the awkward situation, but stirs up the sibling conflict even further.

The Nick Cheung Ka Fai and Shaun Tam Chun Yin starred film BAU LIT DIM (EXPLOSION POINT) was shooting in Malaysia. Yesterday the team shot Chrissie Chau Sau Na's scene in Gua Tempurung, but around 3PM due to rain the water level rose to around 1.5 meters. 30 film production team members including Chau Sau Na, Tam Chun Yin and others were trapped in Gua Tempurung. The firefighters rushed to the scene for a series of rescue work. Around 6:10 PM all those trapped were saved, luckily no one was hurt.

Reportedly, the rain came very suddenly. In a few seconds the waterway turned into a rapid, hence trapping Chau Sau Na, Tam Chun Yin and the crew. The situation was rather dangerous. Finally they used rope to pull each one out and all were successfully rescued.

The 19th Hong Kong Asian Film Festival two nights ago held the opening ceremony. Two opening films HONG KONG FAMILY (GOR SI GOR JIK)'s actors Teresa Mo Shun Kwan, Gardner Tse Kwan Ho, Hedwig Tam Sin Yin and THE NARROW ROAD (JAT LOK MEI CHUNG)'s actors Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Angela Yuen Lai Lam and Anna Tung On Na attended the premieres.

Mo Shun Kwan and Tse Kwan Ho in HONG KONG FAMILY played a family with Edan Lui Cheuk On, Yuen Lai Lam and Tam Sin Yin. After working with this group of new actors, Sister Mo praised that several new generation actors really liked to act. Everyone had a lot of fun from working together, after finishing the film she realized that hope appeared in Hong Kong film again. Sister Mo in particular praised Tam Sin Yin for being very talented, having a lot of her own ideas, and would observe other actors' performance from the sideline. "Actually both young actresses are very excellent, and gave quality performance. When by the end Tam Sin Yin and I had a moment of eye contact, then I realized that I had so few scenes with her. Her eyes are very capable of acting!" Sister Mo said that Edan would join the team for promotion. Lately she has been busy with promoting and has not have time to watch Keung To and Edan's new series WE GOT GAME, but revealed that Keung To and Jer Lau Ying Ting would attend audience appreciation events for MAMA'S AFFAIR (AH MA YAU JOR DAI YI GOR) and asked everyone who have not seen it 20 times to watch it again. As for Carol Cheng Yui Ling not extending her TVB contract, Sister Mo admitted that she did not know before hand. She has not have the time to chat with her yet. She felt a change of scenery would be a good thing, looked forward to Cheng's acting and would try to persuade her. She also said that Sister Do really took care of MIRROR and she would see if everyone would have any opportunity to collaborate.

Tse Kwan Ho said that the actors were decent too. Playing father and son with Edan, he sensed that Edan's performance had a lot of fire. "On the first day on the set he already called me Papa, he really put an effort into playing the emotional scenes and did all his homework. He also asked me for advice. Being with actors who are interested in acting, I am very happy." Tam Sin Yin said about the elder's praises, "I really am flattered, on the set I actually rarely made noise. I only paid attention and observed. I don't know whether they were just being courtesy or not, I still want to thank everyone!" Sister Mo said that this was sincere praise and not words of courtesy.

Cheung Kai Chung revealed that THE NARROW ROAD was a family film that depicted three generations of ordinary people looking out for each other. In the film he and Yuen Lai Lam's relationship was not the usual opposite sex relationship. Yuen Lai Lam cut her hair short for a new look. She denied that her rumored boyfriend Edan Lui Cheuk On upset her, she just wanted to switch to a more androgynous look. However fans said that she lost her charm after cutting her hair. She said, "When I heard that at first I was a little unhappy, but beauty has many kinds. I want to discover another type of beauty."

Yuen Lai Lam denied the variety of rumors with Edan. She said that the couples look was a coincidence. He sat on the sofa at her home and streamed live, but she clarified that it was not her home. They had a group of friends that they played together. "He has come to my home once, but never by himself." Was she worried that fans would be upset and apply pressure to the company so they went low key? Yuen Lai Lam said, "Spare me! I don't dare to reach that high, everyone right now are good friends!" Ah Chung chimed in and said that Yuen Lai Lam has always been a guest at his home, but she only came to look for his wife. Friends' visits were very normal.

Two days ago was Yuen Lai Lam's 29th birthday. At the premiere she received flowers. She pointed out that she was very happy friends came to support her movie and had dinner with her to celebrate. Edan however has done nothing. As for her birthday wish she would like the pandemic to pass soon. Everyone would not have to use a mask again. Hong Kong also would also be completely open and return to normal lives. Both Cheung Kai Chung and Yuen Lai Lam received the 59th Golden Horse Award Best Actor and Best Actress nominations. Yuen said that she would treat it normally, because her actor's journey just started if she would win she would have a lot of pressure. Ah Chung admitted that he had no confidence in winning because the competition would be very strong. He was already happy with the nomination.
