THE SPARRING PARTNER (JING YI WUI LONG)'s producer Philip Yung Tsz Kwong and actor Louisa So Yuk Wa yesterday promoted the film on the radio. Yung Tsz Kwong said that the new film performed better than expected, as it has already passed HK$ 16 million at the box office. The number of viewers kept increasing. He hoped that the run would continue so even more people would be able to enjoy the film. Ah So felt excited and said, "The film has become the talk of the town. Everyone feel if they haven't seen it they would have nothing to talk about. I am very happy. The film company is planning a celebration. I really look forward to reuniting with the cast and the crew."
Director Yung Tsz Kwong earlier on social media revealed that the new film he produced was only successfully made due to a HK$ 1 million loan from Mr. K. Louis Koo Tin Lok and Aaron Kwok Fu Sing were immediately suspected to be the "banker". Yesterday Yung Tsz Kwong said, "Kwok Fu Sing and I are great friends, but this has nothing to do with him. (Was it Koo Tin Lok?) I said I wouldn't say it so I wouldn't, actually the answer is already the verge of coming out." He pointed out that he has already paid the HK$ 1 million back to him and if Mr. K is an actor he hoped in the future to invite him, Kwok Fu Sing and So Yuk Wa to work together on a movie.
