Best Actor Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and Mainland star Gao Yuanyaun in the new Emperor Motion Picture BUT ALWAYS (YUT SUN YUT SAI) played a couple. Tse Ting Fung said that he has never made such a pure romantic film in his career and hoped to make a new attempt. In addition he has never worked with Gao Yuanyuan, so he agreed to make the film. Although this film was a romance, Tse Ting Fung worked out before the shoot. He said, "The film is more than one kiss scene. When I read the script I learned that I had to perform topless, so I had to go through a hellish diet and exercise. Finally I lost 15 pounds. (Were you worried about embarrassing yourself in face of Gao Yuanyuan?) No, because the character had hard labor, I shouldn't eat well, live well and have so much fat. Losing weight for a romance this time, at first I thought it would be easier than working on an action film. I didn't expect it to be even more exhausting on the mind and body."
After making the film he would rather return to action films. Tse Ting Fung said, "If I made an action film the superficial wounds could heal very quickly, but for this ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

However Ka Fai was stiff with Sammi during photos,which was quite a contrast to Sammi who leaned on Ka Fai. Finally Ka Fai during the interview kissed Sammi four times.
Sammi joked about Ka Fai's stiff performance during the photo shoot. "No, he is a traditional Chinese man. He would be more reserved with his limbs. I instead am a little wilder, like a guy." Ka Fai stated that he was not stiff and even told Sammi to come over so he could kiss her. Was he afraid that Sammi's boyfriend Andy Hui Chi On would be upset? He joked, "With photo shoots of course I have to pretend to be a gentleman with manners." He continued to say that he had a feeling of meeting too late with Sammi. He also had an idea for working together again in the future, but it would not be a romance. It would be a hardcore drama, only for now he did not know whether he would direct or act.
As for Sammi's claim that he declined to be her concert guest, he admitted that he did not know how to enjoy the share. The last time when he was Julian Cheung Chi Lam's guest he kept practicing. He said, "So even Sister ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Chor Yuen earlier was rumored to have Alzheimer's disease. When Chor Yuen's wife Nam Hung two nights ago attended a charity Cantonese opera show she clarified, "He doesn't have Alzheimer's. That day I went with him to see a doctor for a monthly examination. Maybe because I didn't wear any makeup and we were dressed casually, we looked like we were very depressed." Nam Hung pointed out that Chor Yuen was in good spirits. "However Hubby now doesn't want to go out. Because he feels that he was on the set everyday before, he enjoys staying at home now, watching television, eating and sleeping."
Nam Hung joked that she instead went out, learning calligraphy, painting, singing and other hobbies. "Hubby hasn't studied with me. He joked that he used his brain too much before, now he doesn't want to use his brain too much." She said that Chor Yuen was not upset about the illness reports. "He is very happy, enjoys the family life. He is just very afraid of entertaining." Nam Hung said that every month she has been practicing Cantonese opera and admitted that she still has the acting bug. "Actors naturally have the acting bug. I have had offers and am interested. I of course want to play the gentle wife and kind mother, but now I am older. Even the younger folks are playing Ma." Next month she will perform in Malaysia.

"I have often worked with him in the past and he always had a smile on his face. He would always use his body to catch me and protect me, fearing that actors would get injured. He was never annoyed with actors even if he has to teach us moves repeatedly."
"He is a very positive person. Fate is very cruel and I am very sad," she concluded.
Other actors such as Johnson Lee, Bernice Liu and Evergreen Mak also bid their farewell through the social networking site.

Comedian Oshima Miyuki won the best actress award for her performance in the new movie "Fukubukusou no Fuku-chan" in the 18th Fantasia International Movie Festival held at Montreal, Canada, on 9 August which makes her the first Japanese winner in 5 years since Mitsushima Hikari won it for her role in "Ai no Mukidashi" in 2009. The interesting thing is, Oshima shaved her head to play a man by the name of Fuku-chan who develops a phobia for women because of his first love (Mizukawa Asami) and later overcomes this condition when he reunites with her and falls for her again.
When interviewed about her win, Oshima commented that it was fascinating to win a best actress award even though she had acted as a man. She expressed her gratitude towards the director Fujita Yosuke for helping her to make the character Fuku-chan come alive. As for Fujita, he also praised Oshima for giving her all in playing this role and admitted that it was a gamble to get a woman to play a man but Oshima made the gamble pay off handsomely.
In response to Oshima's win, her husband Suzuki Osamu posted on his blog that he was very surprised to hear that his wife won the award by playing a middle-aged man which is something rarely heard of. Suzuki revealed that Fujita had brought the script to his wife some years ago before the March 11 tsunami crisis but there were many hiccups along the way before the movie was finally filmed. Suzuki expressed his joy at his wife's achievement and congratulated her for winning the best actress award.
Oshima is currently taking a break from work in order to prepare for motherhood.
The movie "Fukubukusou no Fuku-chan" will be shown nationwide in cinemas from 8 November.
Last weekend, South Korean boyband EXO travelled to Nanjing, China to perform at the opening ceremony of Youth Olympic Games. However, the group was stopped by customs officers at the airport, as there were reportedly issues with the contents of their luggage.
When the airport staff requested that the members open their luggage for checks, EXO's manager refused to oblige and showed his displeasure by scolding the security guards. He also allegedly kicked the table and luggage, which hit some fans who were standing nearby.
In the heat of the moment, EXO's manager shone light into the fans' eyes to prevent them from snapping photos. A fan's camera was even knocked to the ground, heightening the chaotic situation. Eventually subdued by airport security, the manager was forcefully brought away from the scene.
Although the EXO boys did not get embroiled in the scuffle, Chinese member Tao was seen looking distressed as he constantly turned his head to look for his fellow group mates while being escorted out of the airport.
Meanwhile, some witnesses have pointed out that the dispute was, in fact, caused by the airport staff's bad attitude. Tao and Luhan were also said to have tried mediating between both sides, but to no avail.
After news of the incident spread like wildfire on the Internet, S.M. Entertainment clarified that the conflict was between the airport staff and bodyguards, and not EXO's manager. 'The police was not involved. Everything was resolved without problems at the airport,' a representative stated.

Whitney Hui Yik Nei and Ada Wong Chi Hom two nights ago attended a alcoholic beverage event. Wong Chi Hom was rumored to have taken a new film role with daring scenes with nudity and love scenes. She said, "I haven't read the script yet. A lot can be up for negotiation. I can accept full nudity without revealing anything. If I can use a body double that works too." She said that her father Wong Jing has been very busy and they rarely talked about work. "Papa is open minded, he would respect my wishes."
