Eddie Peng Yu-Yen, Choi Si-Won, Carlos Chan Ka Lok and Shawn Dou Xiao two nights ago appeared in cycling gear to work on the Dante Lam Chiu Yin new film TO THE FORE (POR FUNG) at the Tseung Kwan O Velodrome, drawing almost 50 fans to wait for their idols outside. Eddie while working on this film and UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN) before has been injured, thus he joked that he did not hope to make more sports theme movies. He hoped to switch to make pure romantic films.

Eddie and Choi Si-Won pointed out that director Lam Chiu Yin although focused on the actors' physical development asked them to be thin and not to be too muscular. Excessive muscles would make the production even more difficult. In comparison to his previous film UNBEATABLE, which was more difficult to make? He said, "With UNBEATABLE only (Nick) Cheung Ka Fai and I suffered, but for this film I have more people to keep me company." He admitted that aside from actor ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ko Chen-Tung and Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) on the 14th were arrested at a foot bath shop on drug charges. Public Security even seized over 100 grams of marijuana from Cho Ming's home. Finally he was held on "criminal detention". When Cho Ming got into trouble, Jackie Chan was promoting a film in London, England. When he heard the news he dropped everything to fly to Beijing and applied for visitation of Cho Ming with his lawyers to the authority. However according to Mainland investigation procedures, before the official trial the authority could decline family visitation. Even Jackie Chan was no exception. So far he still has not seen his son yet.

After being turned away at the detention house, Jackie Chan was caught discussing how to save Cho Ming. Jackie Chan propped his head up and looked sorrowful and slightly thinner. Since Cho Ming's drug troubles arose, Jackie Chan has refused to take any call and only occasionally sent text messages to friends to stay in touch. Around 7PM he finally broke his silent on Weibo. He blamed himself for his son's mistake. "First, thank you to all the friends for your concern. When my son Fong Cho Ming did something like this, I am very enraged and very .....

Hong Kong actress Ada Choi may looked like the more dominant partner in her marriage with Chinese actor Max Zhang but the actress recently said that nothing could be further than the truth.


Mingpao News reported that the actress recently attended a promotional event for a health product at the HKCEC, which she endorsed jointly with her martial arts actor husband – their first endorsement as a couple in Hong Kong.


Asked to address rumours saying that they are paid a seven figure sum for endorsing the product, Ada laughed and said, "The payment is of course higher than usual because there are two of us."


Ada also addressed speculations about her domineering ways, after Max's past interview saying that she controls the family finance. "I deal with the budget, but my husband is responsible for our daughters' education, like what school they should get into and things like that. I never go against him on things that are under his care."


"I really respect my husband. I may speak loudly but it doesn't mean that I am not a gentle person. I do listen to him," said Ada, adding that the two of them have always discussed their issues together.


"You should never keep things to yourself, or it will accumulate and make you depressed," the actress concluded.

Charmaine Sheh has laughed off rumours pertaining to her collaboration with Louis Koo in the movie version of TVB's hit TV series "Triumph in the Skies".
