This film aside from them also starred Ella Chen Chia-Hwa and the group Lollipop F. Chi Wai, Chan Jing and Wen Chao presented wedding gifts to the soon to wed Cho Nam as well as advanced blessings.

Having participated in and produced many Lunar New Year film, Chi Wai said that this film's cast and story gave a very different impression to everyone. In the film he played a funny and crazy father. His comedic nonsense with on screen son Wen Chao will be a bright spot in the film. This would also be Ella's first Lunar New Year film. She and Cho Nam played siblings. They also led the cast to major revelations, narrating the hardship of artists in a humorous manner. Working with Ella for the first time, Cho Nam said that after being together for awhile he realized that their personalities and appearances resembled actual siblings. Ella finally fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming an actor. This time she accepted Chi Wai's invitation to make a Hong Kong film, she felt that she could not be luckier and even fearlessly appeared with a tomboy image in order to leave a deep impression with everyone.

The original writer Zhang Jiajia will direct the film and Wong Kar Wai will produce. Zhang Jiajia thanked the team for its support and hoped that the first collaboration with Wai Jai would set off spark. He even "expressed his feeling" to Wai Jai and said that he was the only choice for the new film.

Wai Jai often appeared in a blue image. He said, "Actually being blue is very hard to take. I also have my sunny and happy side. I took FERRYMAN because I want to play a romantic comedy." Wai Jai said that this time he took the role after reading only the synopsis, so far he still has not seen a script. He fully trusted his frequent collaborator Wong Kar Wai. After ten years without a romantic comedy he said that he had a lot of pressure with the performance.

Wong Kar Wai said that the script was being worked on. Wong Kar Wai was asked about only producing instead of directing. He listed five reasons. "This story is very influential, its director must be able to achieve five points, including must like hot pot casserole, must be able to drink, must have a post 80 nostalgia, sounds like Wong Kar Wai but actually is (Stephen) Chow Sing Chi, and have the attention of a lot of women.

Earlier they worked on the poster for the film in two costumes. They had a lot of chemistry, often making intimate poses like arms around the waist and Eskimo kisses. They could not be any sweeter.

Goo Jai and Ah Sheh in the film were in love early on, but due to family objection they broke up. Now they have a chance to get back together and rekindle their romance, they cherish each other even more. Because they played a couple, intimate scenes were inevitable. Yet everyone was very professional and able to handle the intimate scene at will. Goo Jai said that when he courted Ah Sheh again a lot of romantic parts occurred. They were very pleased with the result, as he said that working with Ah Sheh on a film for the first time they had a lot of spark. Ah Sheh at first thought that Goo Jai was someone who did not talk or laugh, but actually he was a super nice guy. He often taught her how to act, so she was at ease when she got intimate with Goo Jai. She also said that before getting into the business she thought about becoming a flight attendant, now she finally had the chance to play one she felt very happy.

The two days long 13th annual Greater China Film Directors' Forum began yesterday. Over 200 Mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan filmmakers were present, the highest attendance in history. Hong Kong Directors' Guild president Derek Yee Tung Sing revealed that the first day meetings mainly examined the chaos that ensured from the Mainland film market's rapid takeoff in recent years, he also hoped through this forum a new generation of young directors could meet and have exchanges with each other.

Yee Tung Sing said that the Mainland produced around 700 films every year, but only 200 to 300 might be released. In recent years online film watching has become popular, more people watched on mobile phones than on computers and tablets. He said, "Perhaps in the next few years, the film film industry would surpass the U.S.; but that would be none of my business since I am already planning to retire. (Will you be retiring in the next two to three years?) No, but I am getting gold. I will be more selective. Thus I admire Ng Yu Sum (John Woo) and Tsui Hark very much, because big productions would be very tiring." Although Hong Kong films have not shown any sign of life, he felt that Hong Kong film would not disappear because Hong Kong still had many young directors who were toiling at film productions. In addition, has he paid attention to reports about Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming)? Yee Tung Sing immediately slammed the gate shut. "Today I am not talking about that." He also revealed .....
