If he went, he would not know what he would say; he also said that this character had enormous emotional upheaval. This robber originally did not want to rob again and wanted to change jobs, but he was bullied and in the end he could not accept it. Siu Chai continued, before the shoot he studied that criminal's television videos for character research. He also had to learn the Chaoshan dialect.

Siu Chun who has not made a Hong Kong film in a long time said that now after work he would rush home to be with his son. Speaking of his son, he was very excited. He said that now his son was 15 months old and was very cute. However his son would only call for Mommy and ignore him when he asked him to say Papa. Siu ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Six hours of fresh programmes a day, all available on demand from early morning; that's HKTV's recipe for success in the battle to attract an audience of young, tech-savvy viewers with deep pockets.


Speaking to the Post yesterday, the new online channel's boss, Ricky Wong Wai-kay, set out his strategy ahead of its long-awaited launch tonight. Unlike a traditional station offering different programmes through the day, HKTV will follow the strategy of subscription-based foreign channels like HBO and AXN, with new programming in prime time and reruns all day.


"We are targeting a young, working population who have high consumption power," said Wong. Because this group lived a busy urban lifestyle and had little time to watch television every day, Wong said: "Two to three hours of programmes of the best quality are enough per day."


A typical night will see programmes streamed from 7pm until midnight including one hour of HKTV's self-produced programming, two hours of Korean drama, one hour of anime from Japan and one hour of shopping programmes. An hour of shopping shows will also be shown from 1pm.


But Wong says the new programmes will be available from the channel's on-demand service from 6am on the day they are due to be streamed, giving viewers flexibility in when they want to watch.


The programmes can be watched on computers or via mobile apps or set-top boxes.


The streaming kicks off at 8pm tonight, and the first night's schedule will focus on HKTV's original programming. The service begins with coverage of HKTV's launch ceremony, which takes place at the Marriott Hotel in Admiralty this afternoon.


At 8.30pm there is crime thriller Borderline, starring award-winning actor Liu Kai-chi. The first episode has already been seen by more than one million online viewers after it was posted on YouTube.
