Popular actress Park Shin-hye will be switching hats to give a lecture at a Korean junior high school about the importance of respecting intellectual property laws.

According to reports, Park will be giving a lecture, titled "Fakes OUT, Originals OK; Together we will practice protecting intellectual property", at Younghoon International Middle School on October 13th. 400 students are expected to attend to learn more about abiding intellectual property laws, differentiating between original and illegal copies of clothing and shoes. Park will also touch upon good money spending habits so students can learn that it's not worth it to purchase illegal products at a lower cost.

This isn't Park's first time giving such a lecture. She's spoken on this topic before as the honorary ambassador for the Korean Intellectual Property Office.

Charmaine Sheh and Julian Cheung will still be the leads. Recently, Julian Cheung also confirmed this news when he attended a function, and announced that he will be spending some time in Macau to film the "Return of the Cuckoo" movie. 

Julian Cheung (Chilam) attended a charity concert in Macau. Chilam expressed that will be breaking his record, as he will be flying to six different places in one week. He said: "I will be going to Beijing, Ningbo, Shanghai, Sichuan, Danba; flying even more than pilots!" Asked if wife, Anita Yuen will be going with him? Chilam laughed: "No, she will only go to the more comfortable trip, so she came today to Macau." Next month, he will be staying a period of time in Macau, to film the movie version of "Return of the Cuckoo", the cast will stay the same as the original including Charmaine Sheh, Chilam Cheung and Nancy Sit. He said: "Playing the same character is really hard, since it's been such a long time already, so the ages will be different too." Asked if he is scared he will have rumours with Charmaine Sheh again? Chilam expressed that he is not, using the same old promotional tactics is no use already.

The film SIFU VS. VAMPIRES (TIN SI DAU GEUNG SI) continues the 80s MR. VAMPIRE (GEUNG SI SIN SUN) action comedy specialty, mixes Eastern and Western vampire and zombie subjects, and invited the Mr. VAMPIRE II star Yuen Biao to play the master. Yuen Biao said that earlier in ENCOUNTERS OF THE SPOOKY KIND (GWAI DAU GWAI) he played a vampire and fought with Sammo Hung Kam Bo. This time he went from a vampire to a master and had many wire and action scenes.

The film also starred Ronald Cheng Chung Kei, who replaced the past vampire film's Ricky Hui Koon Ying in the comedic role as he played buddies down on their luck with Ng Won Lung. Ng Won Lung played a dummy in the film and also worked as the action director. He said that working with Yuen Biao was a dream come true, as he was his childhood action idol. He said that he had to create a new generation of vampires, fast and agile with the power of the HULK when he appeared.

On Chi Kit and Ng Won Lung in the film had many action films. When asked about injuries, Ng Won Lung revealed that On Chi Kit was injured due to mischief. During lunch he jumped off a bus and his head almost hit the ground. Luckily he turned to his back in time, but his back was all scratched up. On Chi Kit thus got a day off. On Chi Kit admitted that at the time he was in a lot of pain and he would not dare again. Later they will still have plans to work together. On Chi Kit said that he wanted to make a category III film. He said, "Category III films have no restriction, I want to make ones with more violence and foul language." If he had to bare all? He joked, "Let's see for how much money! Money talks!" He said that actually it would depend on the script. Ng Wong Lun joked to keep him out of it. Was he afraid of comparison? They both laughed. Ng Won Lung joked, "Height comparison!"

Abby Fung had a back revealing performance in the film. She said that the director asked to add this scene last minute, but she felt that it was acceptable ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) was invited to take part in the 58th London Film Festival and held a world premiere there on October 12th. Director Teddy Chan Tak Lum and lead actress Bai Bing earlier already arrived in London. This film festival took place between the 8th and the 19th, showing 248 films over 12 days. It was the largest scale film festival there. The film KUNG FU JUNGLE was invited to participate as the Official Thrill selection and held its world premiere at the Empire Leicester Square.

Director Chan Tak Sum said that the last time he was in London was many years ago already. As soon as he got off the plane he had to attend the technical tests at the premiere cinemas with film festival personnel. When he stepped into the cinema, Director Chan could not help but let out a "wow" because the screen was 26.5 meters wide. It was the largest in all of England and even much larger than Hong Kong's IMAX silver. It was also the largest silver screen that he has seen in his life. He felt very honored and excited about KUNG FU JUNGLE being able to be screened here. He also believed that the results would be very unforgettable for the audience.

The cinema originally arranged for a 15 minute test, but the film ran for 60 minutes and still has not been stopped because the local workers were drawn to it. They did not want to work. Later Director Chan left but the workers remained reluctant to leave and kept watching. He pointed out that the film was about many ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Various celebrities have recently opted for the subway as their mean of transportation due to the road closures and diversions caused by the demonstration in Hong Kong.

 

Aside from Julian Cheung and wife Anita Yuen, as well as singer Alex To, who all uploaded selfies of themselves in the subway to show their train experience, China News reported that Hong Kong's Heavenly King Aaron Kwok also did the same recently.

 

Wearing a mask and a cap to avoid recognition from other passengers, Aaron uploaded a photo of himself standing inside a subway train on Weibo on 8 October, and wrote, "This is the first time I saw barricades across the Connaught Road. There were no taxis and my driver was stuck in the traffic. I am going to take the subway."

 

Admitting that he has not taken the subway for ten years, Aaron was in awe with how fast the trains are nowadays.

 TVB actress Sharon Chan has recently dismissed rumours saying that her recent marriage was a shotgun wedding that was held due to unexpected pregnancy.

 

As reported on Sina's Daily News, the actress, who recently married boyfriend of ten years William Lui in Bali, stated that she would not have held a wedding in Bali if she were indeed with a baby.

 

"I would have been very tired!" she said.

 

However, the actress did not deny that the subject of having children has been in their mind since they were dating.

 

"We've thought about it, as we both love children very much," said Sharon. "But my family is not pushing us to have children as soon as possible. They are already happy about the wedding."

 

Nonetheless, Sharon admitted that life has been quite hectic since marriage, what with their bakery launching this month and her new series filming next month.

 

"I am a workaholic, so I don't mind," she said.

The annual TVB awards in Singapore "Starhub TVB Awards" has officially ended. The "My Favourite TVB Male Actor" award was awarded to the "black horse", Ruco Chan for "Ruse of Engagement" and also won one of the "My Favourite TVB Male Characters" award with his role in "Brother's Keeper". When Ruco went up to the stage to accept his award, host of the night, Dodo Cheng, knew that he had shaved his head for his current drama "Cheung Po Tsai", so she purposely told him to take off his hat. Ruco obediently complied with her request. 

After 20 years of being in the industry, it is Ruco's first time getting a TV King award. In the drought of TVB siu sang's these few years, he has been heavily promoted and given many male lead roles. His drama, "All That is Bitter is Sweet" is also being broadcasted before the TVB Anniversary, so logically, he should be quite confident with the TVB TV King award this year. However, this year's competitors turned out to be very strong, including Roger Kwok in "Black Heart, White Soul", Wong Cho Lam's "Come On, Cousin" is also airing soon, Ruco is up for a race! But, getting the Starhub TV King award this time, Ruco is very happy and excited; asked if he feels like he was a "black horse" for the award? He pointed out that the competitors are very strong. This time the award was voted by fans, so he is very grateful. As for whether this award has increased his confidence to claim the TV King award in Hong Kong? He responded :"Go with the flow! I am already very happy with this award."
