Nick Cheung Ka Fai's directing debut HUNGRY GHOST RITUALS (YU LAN SUN GUNG) had a good opening. After two days in release it already made 3.71 million. Because Ka Fai was working on FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 2 (DOH SING FUNG WON 2) in Thailand, he sent two lead actresses Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau) and Carrie Ng Ka Lai to the cinemas for audience appreciation. Sum Yau said that the film's good box office performance surprised everyone very much. This was Ka Fai's first "BB", he was very happy that everyone supported him. Unfortunately Ka Fai due to work could not celebrate together with them. Will she ask Ka Fai to take them to a feast? She said that earlier she asked Ka Fai to take everyone to the Maldives for a holiday in hopes of him displaying his six pack abdominal muscles again. However she knew that this was impossible. Speaking of Ka Fai's abdominal muscles already returning to one piece, she said that he could very quickly train them back. This was sacrifice for box office. She said that she was working hard on her vest line, but the coach pointed out that she would not see any result until half a year and without diet coordination. Would she display her successful training results in a bikini? She said that she would not need to wear a bikini. She felt that beauty only came from not being deliberate. Would she consider publishing a photo book? She said that would depend on the results, but if she ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Tomorrow in several Hong Kong newspaper he would publish a statement to thank Master Sin Kwok Lam for cultivating him.

The statement also mentioned the Master had given his endless support whether in teaching national arts, on the performing art road and financially. Even if his film did not perform well at the box office he still remained by him. Luckily after the lawsuit was exposed, he received legal world elders' advice and understood that if he would continue on his mistake would only worsen. He immediately halted and corrected himself. He was willing to make compensation to his master. He also apologized to everyone at his management company National Arts. The statement content was similar an earlier report of "seven sins".

Hong Kong actor Roy Cheung Yiu-yeung is under administrative detention after being allegedly found with marijuana in a Beijing hotel. Cheung, 50, was staying at the Ritz-Carlton at the time, Beijing Youth Daily and Xinhua News Agency reported.

Officers from the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau Narcotics Control Commission also seized 1.15 grams of marijuana in his luggage and his urine sample tested positive for the drug. Cheung, who is reported to have admitted the offenses, was said to be on his way to Hebei to attend the wedding of a friend. Some reports also allege Cheung, who is expected to be detained for at least 20 days, was also involved in prostitution. Some Hong Kong actors said they are shocked and fear for the safety of Cheung.

Singer Remus Choy Yat-kit said: "As a friend I am worried about him. "I could not contact him and I will pay attention to news reports. But it is improper if he has really taken up such a bad habit." Cheung joined the entertainment industry as a model and made his first movie appearance in 1986. Renowned for his charismatic portrayals of gangsters and triad members, Cheung appeared in more than 90 movies including the popular Young and Dangerous series and Infernal Affairs. 

Cheung was named best supporting actor for his role in The Mission, which was directed by Johnny To Kei- fung in 1999. He was recently diagnosed to be suffering from a slipped disc, forcing him to reduce his screen appearances.

Nick Cheung Ka Fai in 2009 with the film THE BEAST STALKER (JING YUN) won 7 Film Awards for Best Actor. This year with a challenge to his physical limits he with UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN) defeated two "Grand Masters" Tony Leung Chiu Wai (THE GRANDMASTER) and Anthony Wong Chau Sun (IP MAN THE FINAL FIGHT) for her second Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor award. Love to challenge himself, Ka Fai again challenged his potential and directed for the first time as he directed and starred in the ghost film HUNGRY GHOST RITUALS (YU LAN SUN GUNG). He even asked the "goddess" Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau) to play the Cantonese opera diva.

Director Cheung did not spare the petite Sum Yau BB, asking her to perform different physical movements to express different possessions. Once he even asked Sum Yau BB to keep ramming the wall. However she still did as she was asked without any complaint. The goddess was so willing to take risks that Ka Fai was surprised.

Ka Fai joked that Sum Yau was soft on the outside and tough on the inside, a stubborn girl who never gives up. When she felt that she did not perform well, she would immediately said to him, "Director can I try it again?" Sum Yau awkwardly laughed. She said that the most difficult of the film was being possessed. When different ghosts possessed her, she had to perform different physical movements. It was quite a challenge. In one scene she had to keep ramming the wall. In another scene she was hung in ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Petrina Fung Bo Bo earlier attended the Shanghai Film Museum organized Ruan Lingyu silent film screening and accepted the Film Montage program host's interview. Fung Bo Bo revealed that she will write, direct, and star in a movie about Ruan Lingyu and is conducting research right now.

Fung Bo Bo said that earlier when director Stanley Kwan Kam Peng made CENTER STAGE in 1991, she already had the idea to make a film with a related subject. At the time she asked many friends in the cultural scenes to provide information about Ruan Lingyu, but she did not expect Kwan Kam Peng would make CENTER STAGE. A lot of ideas in the film were very similar to hers. On the day of the interview, Fung Bo Bo visited the Film Museum and was very excited to see a lot of old film production equipment. She pointed out that the old fashioned tripod camera on display was her old friend. She also revealed that Hong Kong production teams used to put chalk at the camera legs for the clapperboard. She often took the chalk to play with, drawing a hopscotch course on the ground to play.

Kenneth Ma and Selena Li reunite again for new drama, "Ghost Dragon of Cold Mountain", sweetly acting as a married couple this time. Selena Li, who plays two roles in a drama for the first time, plays a kind, simple, optimistic, Tou Fa; while her other character is a scheming famous courtesan, Yan Mei Leung, quite a big challenge in Selena's career. Ma Ming has not been able to forget Tou Fa's character, laughed saying he hasn't pulled away from character yet. Although the two have cooperated many times, but everytime there is new chemistry and real feelings: "The drama is suitable for the whole family, hope that everyone can watch happily, don't want the society to be full of negativity and dissatisfaction." 

Likes girls who don't wear make up

Kenneth highly praised Tou Fa's personality, saying it is the ideal personality for a wife in real life - not scheming, very cute and pretty: "Plus I also like girls who don't wear make up, but in real life, there are very few people who are like Tou Fa; I don't mind my other half being someone from outside the industry, because if I like her, then I like her. I won't think about their profession!" Kenneth, who expressed that he is not in a hurry to date, said that he will choose what characters to "remain feelings for", for example, he still likes Selena Li's character from "A Fistful of Stances", still living in the past fairytale world! 

Selena exposed that everytime Kenneth sees her dressed as Tou Fa, he will be very excited. About the two's past rumours, right now both are ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
