The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed Lunar New Year film MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) already made more than HK$ 20 million in Hong Kong and 1.2 billion RMB in the Mainland.

The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed and produced Luanr New Year film MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) since its Lunar New Year's Day release has been on top of the Mainland and Hong Kong Lunar New Year Chinese film charts. At the same time it also broke the Chinese film opening day box office record. As of two days ago (on the 11th) its Hong Kong cumulative box office was HK$ 16,639,720. In the Mainland it even broke 1 billion RMB in 92 hours. Sing Yeh not only thanked the audience but he was also the most touched that he was able to through this love story make everyone understand the importance of environmental protection.

Sing Yeh admitted that a comedy that truly makes the audience laugh was not easy to make. When he made each film he cared the most about whether the audience would like it or not. The audience had to like it for it to perform well at the box office. He said, "You don't have to think about the box office. As long as the audience likes it it is good. The audience is the most important. (Which is the most beautiful love story and your favorite fairy tale?) Hahaha, didn't I just make it? For now MERMAID's love and fairy tale performance are already very appropriate."
