When audiences watched Hong Kong's three sexiest men - Louis Koo Tin Lok, Daniel Wu and Sean Andy in the Chinese film, Overheard, little may they have realized how true to life it was.
The actors played police officers assigned to investigate alleged stock price manipulation, something that is not unknown in the real world.
Ye Zhigang, a star securities analyst in the Shanghai-listed Haitong Securities Co, is currently under investigation for stock price manipulation.
He is accused of issuing favorable reports about some companies, causing the value of the stock to rise and allowing previous private investors to walk away with a handsome profit.
"The investigation is still under way," a spokeswoman surnamed Shu from Haitong Securities said. She indicated that Ye Zhigang has not been at work ever since the end of July.
The Chinese media estimate Ye realized a profit of 10 million yuan from the deal, considerably more than the 600,000 yuan he earned from his work last year.
Insiders speculate the manipulated stock was in Chongqing-based Zongshen Power Machinery, a motorcycle producer. Shares in the company soared to 13.11 yuan from 5.05 yuan five months after Ye issued four papers advocating the firm.
Ye was once the most promising analyst in his field. The 35-year-old studied mechanical engineering and received a doctorate from Shanghai Jiaotong University. He joined Haitong in 2006 and rose rapidly to become a key figure in the company within three years. His team won the Chinese "best analyst" ranking for three consecutive years.
Ye always kept a low profile and was a hardworking man, people familiar with him said. According to a media investigation, Ye Zhigang published 121 reports in New Fortune, a domestic financial magazine in 2007, the equivalent of two to three analyses a week.
His good image and bright future are now under threat.
The first person to accuse Ye of underhand dealing was his former girlfriend. According to Caijing magazine, she went to Shanghai's securities regulator with certain allegations and the latter immediately began an investigation.
Though China's securities regulator forbids securities practitioners from making deals in the market and conducting wealth management business personally, nonetheless 80 percent of staff in securities firms reportedly do play in the market.
When asked whether it is a rare case or a common practice for analysts to break regulations in Haitong, Shu declined to comment.
It is widely believed that Ye was ordered to pay a penalty of 20 million yuan, double the profit he earned from the deal. No other punishment from either the regulator or Haitong Securities Co has so far been announced.
Two years ago, Tang Jian, a fund manager at China International Fund Management Co, was fired and prohibited to work in the securities sector for life, probably the first instance of being punished for insider dealing on the mainland.
"An analyst would be charged with financial fraud abroad, but it is not a crime, merely a moral question within China," said a source at a mutual fund who declined to be identified.

TAIPEI — Hong Kong director Clara Law's "Like A Dream" leads nominations for this year's Golden Horse Film Awards, the "Oscars" of Chinese-language cinema, organisers announced Wednesday.
"Like A Dream", produced in China, will be vying for honours in nine categories, including for the coveted best director and best film awards, when the 46th annual ceremony is held on November 28.
The film stars Hong Kong heartthrob Daniel Wu and China's Yolanda Yuan, both of whom are up for the top acting awards.
Taiwanese director Leon Dai's "No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti", based on a true story of a diver fighting for custody of his daughter, follows closely with seven nods, including best film, best director and Taiwanese film of the Year award.
Newcomer Chen Wen-pin is up for best leading actor for his performance in the film, along with Wu ("Like A Dream"), Nick Cheung (for Hong Kong film "The Beast Stalker") and China's Huang Bo ("Cow").
Chinese director Guan Hu's "Cow", about a farmer entrusted by the Chinese communist army to look after a cow during the war against Japan, also receives seven nominations.
Espionage thriller "The Message" is nominated in five categories, including two best leading actress gongs for leading ladies Zhou Xun and Li Bingbing.
The pair are competing against Yuan ("Like A Dream") and Taiwanese-French actress Sandrine Pinna ("Yang Yang").
Taiwan-based Malaysian director Tsai Ming-liang's "Visage" (Face), the first of a new set of works produced by The Louvre based on the myth of Salome, bags five nominations including for best film, best director and best art direction.
Chinese star Zhang Ziyi is vying for best supporting actress for "Forever Enthralled" -- the biopic of legendary Peking opera singer Mei Lanfang, but the blockbuster surprisingly only secured nominations in four categories.
The Golden Horse Awards are styled on the US Academy Awards but are decided by a jury along the lines of the Cannes film festival.
I'm sorry, but Daniel is in the clear of this right? He didn't do anything illegal did he?
Naah. The incident was just compared to the role he did in "overheard".

Roll out the red carpet for the Golden Horse Awards.
IT is the time of the year for the Golden Horse Awards (GHA), Taiwan's version of the Oscars, which is regarded as one of the most prestigious Asian movie awards.
This year's 46th Golden Horse Awards Film Festival runs from Nov 5 to 26, and culminates in the presentation of 23 awards on Nov 28 in Taipei.
Best Leading Actor nominee Daniel Wu for Like A Dream.
Following last year's best film win by China's The Warlords, this year sees another neck-to-neck fight among top films from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
Like A Dream by Macau-born Australian filmmaker Clara Law leads the pack with nine nods, including best feature film, best director (for Law), best leading actress (Yolanda Yuan) and best leading actor (Daniel Wu).
Taiwan's own No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti follows with eight nominations, including best feature film, best director (Leon Dai), best leading actor and best new performer (Chen Wen Pin) and the outstanding Taiwanese film of the year.
China's Cow gets seven nods, including best feature film, best director (Guan Hu) and best leading actor (Huang Bo), while Taiwan's Yang Yang and China-Taiwan film The Message get six nods each.
The best leading actor category sees American-born Hong Kong actor Daniel Wu (GHA best supporting actor for New Police Story in 2004) nominated for Like A Dream; and Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung (best leading actor at the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards) getting another nomination for Beast Stalker.
Beijing-born Zhang Ziyi, who has yet to win a GHA despite receiving best actress nominations for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) and 2046 (2004), gets a best supporting actress nod for Chen Kai Ge-helmed Forever Enthralled.
Wilson Yip-helmed martial arts flick Ip Man, which bagged the best picture and best action choreography awards at the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards, gets another best action choreography nod for Sammo Hung and Tony Leung Siu Hung.
Two Malaysian filmmakers received nominations this year. Ho Yuhang's Malaysian-made At The End Of Daybreak received one nomination for best supporting actress for Hong Kong actress Kara Wai Ying Hung. Taiwan-based Tsai Ming Liang's Face scored five nominations, including best feature film and best director.

It wouldn't really be the Chinese film industry's night of nights without a little controversy - and a hint of a scandal. And Taiwan's Golden Horse awards - to be held in the capital Taipei this Saturday) - have already delivered a little bit of both.
Commonly known as the Chinese film industry's "Oscars," the Golden Horse awards date back to 1962 and honor the very best offered by Chinese-language cinema over the previous 12 months.
The awards carry justifiable cachet for filmmakers both domestically and overseas. For films such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) and Infernal Affairs (2003), winning Golden Horse awards helped raise their profile and led to the films being given wide international release.
But there were raised eyebrows this year when the Taiwanese-born director Yonfan's critically acclaimed Prince of Tears was completely ignored when nominations were released at the start of October.
That film - set around the "White Terror" anti-communist movement of the 1950s - used some funds drawn from the Taiwanese government but is being put forward by Hong Kong for Academy Award consideration this year, as its director and the majority of its crew work out of that city.
Industry insiders say the Taiwanese were not amused, while Yonfan himself said he couldn't care less.
The scandal this year comes from the tabloid press who claim that Hong Kong actress Carina Lau is avoiding this year's awards due to the appearance of Maggie Cheung as a host.
Cheung, a five-time Golden Horse winner thanks to films such as In the Mood for Love (2000), is due to appear as a presenter at this year's awards - and has had a rumored on-again, off-again affair with actor Tony Leung, who just happens to be Lau's partner.
As for the serious stuff, Macau-born Australian-based director Clara Law is the front-runner with nine nominations for Like A Dream - a drama which follows a man searching for his imaginary lover, staring Yolanda Yuan and the American-born Daniel Wu.
Law looks set to battle it out on the night with the Taiwanese production No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti - which follows a poor man's fight to keep custody of his child - which has been nominated for eight awards, including best director for Leon Dai.
Many fans of Chinese film will be hoping that this is finally the year when the acclaimed Zhang Ziyi gets a gong - she has yet to win one despite nominations for her roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) and 2046 (2004). This year Zhang is up for best supporting actress for Chen Kaige's Forever Enthralled.
And the nominees are....
Best Feature Film: No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti, Cow, Crazy Racer, Face, Like A Dream
Best Director: Leon Dai (No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti), Guan Hu (Cow), Tsai Ming-liang (Face), Clara Law (Like A Dream).
Best Leading Actor: Chen Wen-pin (No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti), Nick Cheung (Beast Stalker), Huang Bo (Cow), Daniel Wu (Like A Dream).
Best Leading Actress: Sandrine Pinna (Yang Yang), Yolanda Yuan (Like A Dream), Zhou Xun (The Message), Li Bingbing (The Message).

TAIPEI - The cream of Asian cinema is set to gather in Taipei on Saturday for the Golden Horse Film Awards, considered the Chinese-language "Oscars".
Famed Taiwan directors Ang Lee and Hou Hsiao-hsien will join Hong Kong peers Johnnie To and Stanley Kwan to present the best director award at tonight's gala ceremony.
However, another top Hong Hong film-maker, John Woo, reportedly will shun the event after his blockbuster war epic "Red Cliff II" was snubbed by the Golden Horse nomination committee.
"It's disappointing and regrettable. The actors and the crew did very well and worked really hard . . . I didn't understand what standard the judges used," he told reporters in Taipei earlier this week.
Chinese actor Zhang Hanyu and last year's best actor winner also voiced bewilderment at the judges' decisions.
"I was hoping for a best actor nomination for 'The Message'. I didn't know what happened," said Zhang, who is instead up for the best supporting actor for the lesser known "The Equation of Love and Death".
Hit espionage thriller "The Message" received five nods, including a surprise double nomination in the best leading actress category for Zhou Xun and Li Bingbing of China.
Other nominees including Li, director Clara Law and heart-throb actor Daniel Wu of Hong Kong, as well as Taiwanese director Leon Dai, are expected to walk down the red carpet in a suburban Taipei auditorium.
Law, whose romantic drama "Like a Dream" led this year's race with nine nominations, is pitted against Dai ("No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti") for top honours at the 46th edition of the awards.
Critics favour Dai's social drama for best picture for its emotionally charged depiction of a diver's desperate fight for custody of his daughter, a plot based on a true story.
Law is in a tight race with Malaysian art-house director Tsai Ming-liang ("Face") for the best director gong, although her film could dominate the acting categories for Wu and Chinese actress Yolanda Yuan.
However, Chinese director Guan Hu could snatch the awards from his more acclaimed rivals with "Cow", a black comedy about a Chinese farmer protecting a cow during the war against Japan in the 1940s, critics say.
The Golden Horse Awards, broadcast by Chinese-language channels as far away as Canada, are styled on the U.S. Academy Awards but are decided by a jury along the lines of the Cannes film festival.

Dayyan Eng who is the director of the movie "Waiting Alone" invited Daniel Wu to appear in his new movie "Inseparable". Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey who is well known for his role in "American Beauty" will also collaborate with Daniel. Other cast include Peter Stormare and Mainland actress Gong Beibi. In the movie Daniel portrays a character who is schizophrenic due to a lot of pressure. He often encounters another clone or identity of himself which is played by Kevin Spacey. The pair will have a lot of scenes together.
Daniel feels a lot of pressure working with the hollywood stars. A few days ago the reporter discovered him walking his dog in Sai Kung to relieve pressure. Daniel who is currently shooting in Guangzhou doesn't have any time to rest during the Lunar new year. He should be able to return to Hong Kong once the movie completes it's filming, which is around March.

"Hot Summer Days" stars talk about love for Vogue Part 2 : Vivian Hsu and Daniel Wu
Daniel Wu : Making the one you love understand you
source : www.CE.cn
In the movie, my character is a sushi master, he is around 40 and has some facial hair, I never appeared like that on screens, so it's refreshing and I wanted to try it out. The chief doesn't have a name, he can be described as the typical "macho man", so he is ignorant and insensitive to the most sensitive parts of love, and he doesn't understand what are the most basic differences between men and women. He doesn't know that when in Love, women's minds are way more complicated, at any time, they'd need concern and care, they want to have an explanation for everything, they hope for communication, or else they'd start imagine nonsense. I want to tell him, apart from concern, Men also need to understand Women minds, there need to be communication between the two, if you don't voice out problems, they will slowly become prolems.
I'm more fortunate than my character in this movie, I never felt that I was "macho man", maybe because since chilhood I've been living with my mother and my 2 sisters, having a group of women by my side, I've learned since young how to get along with them peacefully. When I was only on my teens, I started to undertand, hey, there are some times they would suddenly get moody, there are some times you need to let them be capricious.
My girlfriend Lisa and I have been together for a long time, our feelings doesn't need to piece of paper to be proven. When two people are living together, they need more communication. Making the one you love understand what makes you happy, sad, anxious, excited, that's the way you two can bond and go on together.

Actor to star in Mandarin/English-language pic
The multihyphenate has signed on to star in director Dayyan Eng's black comedy "Inseparable." Spacey's involvement makes him the highest-profile Hollywood actor to ever star in a Chinese production.
The film, which will be shot in Mandarin and English, centers on a young man (Daniel Wu) with problems at home and work who is befriended by a mysterious American expat (Spacey). Beibi Gong also stars as the investigative-reporter wife of Wu's character.
Eng, a Beijing-based U.S. national, penned the script and is producing through his Colordance Pictures banner. Lensing will begin in southern China this month. Move reflects Spacey's aim to be ahead of the curve and recognize the rapidly growing impact of the Chinese film market.
Fantawild Pictures is the majority financier on the project, which is being produced by David U. Lee of Xinhua Media Ent.
While other films have been co-financed in China starring U.S. actors including Ed Norton, Willem Dafoe and Donald Sutherland, this is the first time there has been a wholly financed local Chinese film production starring an actor of Spacey's visibility.
Spacey and Dana Brunetti are exec producing via their Trigger Street Prods. banner. Fantawild's Li Ming and QED Intl.'s Bill Block will also serve as exec producers alongside Steven Squillante.Spacey's upcoming projects include "Casino Jack," in which he plays disgraced Washington power broker Jack Abramoff, and the comedy "Father of Invention." He is also the artistic director of the Old Vic Theatre in London.
Trigger Street's slate includes a pair of Sony pics: the untitled Somali pirate project and David Fincher's "The Social Network."
Spacey and Trigger Street are repped by CAA and Joanne Horowitz Management.
"Inseparable" marks Eng's second feature film. His first, "Waiting Alone," was a cult hit in China.
Spacey to star in 'Inseparable'
Dayyan Eng's film backed by Xinhua Media Entertainment
Jan 13, 2010, 05:26 AM ET
BEIJING -- When Kevin Spacey lands in China in late Jan. to star in writer-director Dayyan Eng's black comedy "Inseparable," he'll become the biggest Hollywood actor to work in a feature film nearly fully-financed by a local Chinese backer.
Start-up Fantawild Pictures, a subsidiary of the Shenzhen-based amusement park company the Hua Qiang Group, will fund more than 90% of the film's undisclosed budget, said producer David Lee, managing director of Xinhua Media Entertainment, the Beijing-based company working with Eng's Colordance Pictures.
Two-time Academy Award-winner Spacey ("American Beauty," "The Usual Suspects") will star as a mysterious American expatriate who befriends a young engineer with problems at work and at home, played by Daniel Wu ("Shinjuku Incident," "Overheard").
"Fantawild has been eyeing the feature film business for a long while, and they think this movie will help put them on the map," Lee told The Hollywood Reporter.
"Inseparable" began shooting in Mandarin and English in Guangzhou on Jan. 8, co-starring Gong Beibei as Wu's investigative reporter wife.
Gong previously worked in Chinese-American director Eng's 2005 romantic comedy "Waiting Alone," winner of the Best First Feature and Best Actor awards at the Beijing Film Festival.
Eng's 2001 short film, "Bus 44," drew honorable mentions at the Venice and Sundance film festivals.
"Inseparable" executive producers are Li Ming of Fantawild, Spacey and Dana Brunetti -- in association with Trigger Street Productions -- and Bill Block of QED International and Steven Squillante, a statement from XME said.
Fantawild's previous outings in filmed entertainment include an animated title called "Kung Fu Masters of the Zodiac," according to the company's Web site.
"We are proud to be a part of the team that shows a global audience that China can produce more than just period dramas and martial-arts pictures," Fredy Bush, CEO of XME's parent company, Nasdaq-listed Xinhua Media & Entertainment Ltd., said in a statement.
XME also helped to bring to China Jackie Chan's "The Spy Next Door" -- for nationwide release Jan. 15 -- and "More Than a Game," starring LeBron James, set to release in April.
Kevin Spacey to Star in Chinese Film: Dayyan Eng's 'Inseperable'
Kevin Spacey is set to star in Dayyan Eng's black comedy "Inseparable," which, according to Variety, makes him "the highest-profile Hollywood actor to ever star in a Chinese production."
The plot focuses on a troubled young man (Daniel Wu) who is befriended by a mysterious American expat (Spacey). "Inseperable" will be shot in both Mandarin and English. Filming will begin in late January in southern China.
Spacey has previously appeared in The Old Vic Theatre Company's productions National Anthems, The Philadelphia Story, Richard II directed by Trevor Nunn and A Moon for the Misbegotten, which subsequently transferred to the Brooks Atkinson Theater New York, Speed-the-Plow with Jeff Goldblum, and most recently in Inherit the Wind. Previous theatre includes The Iceman Cometh (Evening Standard and Olivier Awards for Best Actor, and Tony Award nomination) directed by Howard Davies (Almeida, The Old Vic and Broadway), Lost in Yonkers (Tony Award, Best Supporting Actor), Long Day's Journey into Night, with Jack Lemmon, directed by Jonathan Miller (Broadway and West End). He directed The Old Vic's inaugural production Cloaca and earlier this year directed Complicit starring Richard Dreyfuss. Spacey has quite the impressive film career as well, including two Academy Awards for The Usual Suspects, and American Beauty. His other starring roles in Hollywood include Seven, L.A. Confidential, Pay It Forward, and Superman Returns in a career which has eventually earned him Emmy and Golden Globe nominations

(Daniel Wu part only)
.....Aside from Chan, the supporting cast is fantastic, with Derek Yee’s protégé (BAM!) Daniel Wu – great as always – having to tackle a particularly distressing part. Another welcome addition to the cast is the “Advanced Model” himself – Masaya Kato – drawing on his CRYING FREEMAN experience and once more playing a Japanese mobster. These two performers stand out not only because of their status as actors (at least to me), but because of the fascinating and afflicted characters that they play. Daniel Wu has the hardest job, as his role requires him to run the gamut of as many varying emotions as possible – happiness, hate, anger, fear, batshit crazy, remorse and “look at my new stupid haircut.” He deals with them effectively and invites a sort of antipathy towards his complex character. Kato also requires a kind of distorted understanding on behalf of the viewer as his betrayed gangster emits an element of compassion not usually seen with characters of this sort.

Daniel Wu: Lisa S Is Not Pregnant
Daniel Wu and Lisa S. secretly got married in South Africa this month and it was rumored Lisa is pregnant. Daniel accepted an interview from Mainland media and denied the rumor. Talked about whether he wants boy or girl, he said personally he would be less worried if it's a boy. He's afraid when his daughter turns 18, one day he would see her boyfriend is just as handsome as him, won't be that good; he would be very worried.
Would Lisa S. afraid she might be out of shape after giving birth? Daniel said Lisa is very skinny now and it would be good for her to get a little chubbier. He believes if you really love someone, you won't care her weight or appearance. In his heart, his wife is always the prettiest.

Daniel Wu (Ng) and his wife Lisa S. announced the good news yesterday. Lisa S. gave birth to a baby girl Raven Wu on May 30th, she was 8 pounds at birth. However, Raven had signs of jaundice, thus she had to stay in the hospital 4 more days after birth.
The couple were dating for 8 years before deciding to get married in 2010 in South Africa. After marriage, they worked hard trying to make a baby. December 2012, Lisa announced she was pregnant with a baby girl. Yesterday morning, Daniel and Lisa uploaded photos of their newborn's little fist on Weibo. They said: "We're happy to announce, our healthy baby girl Raven Wu is born! She has made our family perfect. We're excited to enter a new journey in life!"
Yesterday afternoon, Daniel attended Overheard 3's film premiere along with Louis Koo, Sean Lau, Alex Fong Chung Shun, Michelle Ye, directors Alan Mak and Felix Chong and producer Derek Yee. Daniel was in a hurry to share his experience with the media: "Raven was born on May 30th. I accompanied Lisa to the delivery room and felt really surprised. At first, I thought C-section would take a long time, but the process was fast. I wasn't even prepared yet, but we went in at 2:30pm and came out at 2:50pm." When speaking of the labor only took 20 minutes, Louis joked: "You still have time to watch a movie!"
Daniel explained while still in Lisa's belly, Raven was positioned horizontally and wasn't able to turn her body. Basically it was impossible for a natural birth, so Lisa had to go through C-section. He said: "I cut the umbilical cord, that moment was quite bloody and terrifying. I watched the love of my life get 'cut', it was frightening. I was stunned, but I had to hide my fear. When my wife asked me, 'what's wrong?'. I said 'nothing'. I couldn't react fast enough. I followed the doctor as he took baby Raven for a checkup. After all that, I thought I was going to cry, but actually it felt like I was in war."
Raven was 8 pounds at birth, Daniel described her as a big girl. Lisa said her daughter looked as if she's already 3 months old. Asked who his daughter looks more like? Daniel said: "She has my mouth and a high nose, but I can't tell whether she looks like dad or mom yet because she's a newborn. She still has a single eyelid, looks like a Chinese girl with lots of hair."
Daniel's greatest wish is Uncle Louis and Sean really help protect his daughter. He said: "I'm really worried my daughter will start dating when she's a teenager. When that time comes, I will ask her Uncles to watch out for her." Louis joked: "Then I will give her nicknames 'Ng Chun Siu' (aka: "Not Allowed to Laugh") and 'Ng Chun Gong' (aka: "Not Allowed to Talk")." Daniel said his daughter's Chinese name will be decided by his father. Asked if they plan to have more children? Daniel laughed: "Lisa had a difficult time, I don't think that can happen now. Maybe 6 months later! I plan to buy jewelry to reward her and will establish an education fund for my daughter."

Daniel Wu is an easy injured man
Monday April 20, 2015 Hong Kong
Handsome man Daniel Wu (吳彥祖), is recently busy filming a new movie Geostorm, but he will go the gym when he is free. One week ago, Daniel uploaded a topless photo, but he was not trying to show off his six pack. Instead, he wanted to know why he is so easily bruised? Daniel said he forgot to bring his gym protective pad for his workout. Therefore the result caused him to have a 7 inch bruise across his waist, but he said it doesn't hurt at all: "It doesn't hurt at all, just looks like it does". He also added that he is easily bruised, and even wearing a heavy backpack will cause a bruise on the shoulders: "It happens if my backpack is too heavy". He is also confused as to what are the causes, but when online netizens saw his hot body they expressively said: "Although I am heartbroken, but I cannot stop my nose bleed!"
