I also want to thank my husband Kenny for his unconditional support and giving me 100% freedom, encouraging and supporting what I want to do. I have to thank all of the friends in the media and the press for their continuous support over these years. Thank you very much everyone!"
LONELY EIGHTEEN was the third film that Irene personally produced. She hoped that her film office would continue to work with even more new directors and that Hong Kong film whether on or off screen would have even more new talent and good films.
