Eliza Sam (岑麗香) points that she films Oh My Grad (老表,畢業喇!) series happily and comfortably. She admits it is her last workpiece before filming this series and Eliza films 10 episodes only due to getting married at that time: "I act as the school belle who is very popular among boys and wind is even blowing when walking. (Are you the school belle during schooling days?) I am a shy person who has few suitors only. I am already married and what matters most is my husband loves me. Haha!"

Eliza reveals her hubby's Cantonese is poor and she can act as his Cantonese teacher as she needs to explain to him when watching series.

Cecilia So Lai Shan, Belinda Yan Zifei, Candy Yuen Ka Man, Alycia Chan Yuen Hung, Jessica Kan Suk Yi two nights ago attended a film premiere. So Lai Shan said that her first lead role, the new film NEVER TOO LATE (OI CHING LO DAI SAU), will open next month. She was very nervous. After she took the role people kept comparing her to Stephy Tang Lai Yan's "Ah Bo", she started to have a little stress. Actually her version was more tomboyish and very rough. She and Alex Fong Lik Sun even had a lot of argument scenes, different from Stephy's version.

Carina Lau Ka Ling in the film MOTHER IN LAW VS. SON IN LAW (NGOR DIK CHING DIK NUI SAI) played the "ultimate Ah Bo". So Lai Shan said that she had a role in that film. In it she played Lau Ka Ling's character in her youth. She said, "When I saw Sister Ka Ling I was very nervous. Brother Wa (Simon Yam Tat Wa) said that Sister Ka Ling and I both have big eyes and look a little like each other. I was like a little fan and very happy to have a photo with Sister Ka Ling. (Did you ask Sister Ka Ling for advice?) Sister Ka Ling was very busy, I didn't have a chance to chat. (Did you study her performance?) I can't reach her. Sister Ka Ling is in god class. No matter how I study I wouldn't resemble her."

Big Brother even claimed that he was from Shandong (Jackie Chan's family came from Yantai, Shandong) and even spoke in Yantai dialect, which cracked up hte audience. This was Big Brother Jackie Chan's first cinema circuit introduction event. "This was my first time, so I made the trip from the U.S. I arrived in Qingdao at 5AM. This is a very special film, a very solemn and very tragic story. It is very touching, unlike any of my previous action comedy. I want everyone to know that Jackie Chan can not only play comedy but also different genre movies. In the future I may even personally direct a drama."

As a 2016 Lifetime Achievement Oscar award winner, Big Brother Jackie Chan has already won all the honors. However Big Brother was not pleased with himself. He said, "When I received the Oscar I was very happy, but after returning to the hotel and putting down the award this page has become the past." When he learned that in the audience were all national cinema circuit bosses, Jackie Chan expressed his appreciation to them. "Thank you very much everyone for your support all along, thank you .....

Singing diva, Joey Yung (容祖兒) attends the press conference of (英皇電競) and reveals that her eyes are almost blind when playing games before during an interview: "I need to stop it as my eyes are nearly blind and I even pay money to buy mobile games. Sometimes, I do not even have any money left for that week and spend $400 at most. (Do you have glaucoma?) Lack of focus when seeing things and I can see it clearly at a far distance but sometimes it is blurry. Hence, I will stop playing it for a week. (Did you see a doctor?) No need to and I will be alright after sleeping. (Playing games with your boyfriend, Wilfred Lau (劉浩龍) together?) Not telling you. (Does he like to play football game?) Not telling you too. (Your good friend, Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) does not take a shower and wash his hair when playing games before?) He even plays until his finger nail turns black and I am joking."

Gun Metal Grey (刑警) series starring Michael Miu (苗僑偉) and Felix Wong (黃日華) in 2010 leaves a deep impression to the audiences and it is a pity that they do not collaborate ever since. Five days ago on Weibo, Jessica Hsuan (宣萱) and Oscar Leung (梁烈唯) share their group photo separately and it includes the cast team members such as Michael, Felix, Jessica, Oscar, Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Vincent Wong (王浩信) and Koo Ming Wah (古明華). Michael's wife, Jaime Chik (戚美珍) also followed along and the netizens guessed they might be filming the sequel.

Jessica leaves a message: "The cast team of Gun Metal Grey series is having a gathering and we are full now. Thank you to Felix and Michael! It is a very happy night!" Oscar felt happy too and hoped to film together again.

Although The Unholy Alliance (同盟) series has finished airing, but Nancy Wu (胡定欣) continues to make appearance and it is believed that she goes out to sea with Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) lately. She shares a short video clip online and reveals it is her first time to try it.

As Nancy mentions about the stylish coaches, they should be Yeung Chiu Hoi (楊潮凱) and Benjamin and it is obvious that Benjamin is much fitter than before.
