The Andy Lau Tak Wa starred film LOST AND LOVE (SUT GOO) was based of many real cases, sincerely displaying the severe damaging of kidnapping and sale of children on individuals, families and even society. Around 1.2 million children are kidnapped and sold every year around the world. Wa Jai only had one hope when he made this film. "As long as one person in the entire world would think after watching the film, properly protect his children and stop harming children, then it is worth this entire film."

Wa Jai said that earlier already noticed that the sale of children was happening around the world every second and this type of film was needed to bring attention to this global problem to everyone. In the film he played a farmer who lost his son Lei Zekuan. He gave this character an even more human interpretation with hairstyle, skin color, behavior and even gesture. He said, "Many people feel Lau Tak Wa has to be handsome, but I don't feel Lau Tak Wa and Lei Zekuan have distance that can't be overcome. In real life handsome farmers have to exist, the most important is whether the director believed the actor could play this role well. As long as the director believed that, I would be willing to play it well no matter the character."

According to director Peng Sanyuan, Lei Zekuan carried a shoulder bag everywhere ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Joel Chan (陳山聰) were filming new series, Vampire, with vampire and life and death scenes. Kevin kept fighting until perspiration and expressed that he wished to concentrate on his career, and denied being 'dumped' by the beautiful woman: "We separated peacefully."

Recently, the weather was getting warm but still, Kevin continued to wear thick clothing: "I need to film heavy scenes after Lunar New Year. (Need to fly by wire?) Rarely, as the company acquired a special effects company to perform CG. Flying by wire is unable to establish such effects." He added the new series theme was vampire and they usually filmed scenes at night, but Kevin continued to play tennis and exercise.

Relationship matters needed to have decisive decision

When asked about his relationship status, Kevin replied he wanted to concentrate on his career and said: "It is better not to do other stuff when working and will decide after completed filming. (Give you some privacy?) Of course and the whole incident had ended!" Asked if he kept in touch with the beautiful woman, Kevin said: "We separated peacefully and best to have decisive decision in terms of relationship."

Specially made contact lens in US

Joel expressed that the production standard for the series was high and specially made contact lens in US for the 'vampire' for the series. He said: "I use 40 minutes to wear the contact lens when wearing it the first time, as no idea how to wear it. Also, it feels like I am wearing black shade." They will be going for outdoor shootings in Netherlands in April and he was looking forward: "I will go for jogging if not required to film on that day."
