Aimee Chan Yan Mei, Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) and director Benny Lau Wai Heng yesterday promoted their film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) on the radio. The director said that because Daichi Harashima had school in Japan he would not be able to promote in Hong Kong until next week.

Aimee said that the story took place in 1992. She played Daichi's secondary school teacher, who taught him to puruse Tong Yi and developed a long distance relationship. She felt that if a relationship was worth it she would have to persist. Has Aimee had any long distance romance? She revealed that she has. "When I was younger I have. Back then it was still the ICQ age. We would type on the computer. At the time there wasn't as much new technology, so we would personally write letters. I felt handwritten letters were very romantic. In the end of course nothing came of it." Would she support her children to develop long distance romance? She said, "I would have no way to stop them. Now everything changes so fast. If they find someone worth waiting for, it would be very rare and they have to cherish it."

Aimee admitted that she waned to make more movies. "I want to come ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The 55 year old martial art film star Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit)'s health has been a concern in recent years. Some said that years ago after coming down with hyperthyroidism, he could not do any extrenous exercise and needed medication. Thus he looked swollen, fatter and his heart had problems. Recently a photo of him went viral as he had white hair, he was hitched over when he walked and required assistance. Some said that he looked like a 70 year old grandpa. At first they were unable to recognize him. However days ago when he attended a Mainland event, he appeared in good spirit and not as old. Thus controversy ensued.

The viral photo reportedly was taken while he was in Tibet. Fans surrounded Lee Nin Kit that day as he thanked everyone for how well everyone treated him.

Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) and Benny Lau Wai Heng two nights ago attended their film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUE)'s special screening. Former DJ Lau Wai Heng's director turn received support from 80s and 90s singers like Rita Carpio (Wai Yi Shan), Sarah Wong Bo Yan, Timonthy Wong Yik, Elaine Ho Yuen Ying, Jacqueline Man Pui Ling even brought her daughter. On such a rare occasion to get together, they naturally had to talk about their past.

Lead actress Tong Yi said that earlier when she attended the cinema audience appreciation, she was surprised to see a male viewer in tears. She said, "Because the movie is very touching, with a lot of family, or everyone might have experienced long distance relationship and it is a school story, so it is easy to relate." In real life she said that she has not experienced long distance love but believed that she would be able to accept it, because having her space and distance she would be better. Instead seeing each other everyday the relationship would become a habit you become accustomed to. Would she not want to be too dependent on her ten year boyfriend Ken Hung Cheuk Lap? Tong Yi said that she has always been independent and would play the role of a caregiver. The most important in a relationship was communication, not to throw a tantrum or end up in an argument whenever problems arose. Although they have been together for ten years, Tong Yi was in no hurry to wed. She and boyfriend have an ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Felix Chong Man Keung directed, Chow Yun Fat, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Zhang Jingchu starred film PROJECT GUTENBERG (MO SEUNG) will open on September 30th. The film company even released a trailer and poster. After working together in COLD WAR 2 (HONG JIN 2), Fat Gor and Sing Sing had many scenes together this time. In the film Fat Gor played a counterfeit currency organization mastermind "Painter", while Sing Sing played a clueless painter as they teamed up to create a super realistic counterfeit currency.

With many gun fight scenes Fat Gor looked very heroic and inevitably reminded people of Mark Gor in A BETTER TOMORROW. In one scene Fa Gor light a cigarette with fake U.S. currency, which felt like a homage to BETTER! In addition, the film was shot on location in Hong Kong, Canada and Thailand and had three major gun fights. In the trailer the rocket blast took place in Thailand.

The Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) and Daichi Harashima starred Emperor Motion Picture WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) will open soon. Due to the film's 90s background, the film company released YES! card at different cinemas to bring back everyone's memory from their youth. To further ignite the fever, it made WHEN SUN MEETS MOON film special edition YES! card.

Tong Yi put on a school uniform again and appeared in a store that was full of nostalgia for a promotion film shoot. Tong Yi said that she never thought that she would be able to become a YES! card star. She said, "When I was in school I didn't have much allowance. If I twisted one that I didn't really like, I would exchange it with my sister for YES! cards of idols like (Vivian) Chow Wai Man and (Charlie) Yeung Choi Nei, or used several ordinary blank cards to exchange for a matte card; I never expected to be able to see my own YES! card today. That glitter card with me and Daichi stargazing is especially pretty."

SAM AND TAM HAPPY TOGETHER PART II concerts will take place between August 5th and 12th. Yesterday at the press conference, Sam Hui Koon Kit and Alan Tam Wing Lun appeared in courier uniforms and performed a preview. Sam played his guitar and performed WORLD LIKE CHESS, Beatles hits and FRIENDS. Sam even suggested to Sunny Wong for a sexy choreography at the concert. Would Alan dance? He asked, "Do I pole dance?"

The host asked Hui Koon Kit and Tam Wing Lun if they owed a lot of tickets. Alan joked that Sam has many relatives in Hawaii. Sam said that he would give his all because this time part II would be different from part I. Alan said, "Last year Sam only used 1/3 of his hits, he still has 2/3. This time will truly be a hit open archive. To sing them all though would take more than a week!" Sam said, "I would say the other 2/3 of the songs, some old songs would have new lyrics. I hope the audience would get a sense of freshness!" Alan said, "Sam's songs are very philosophical, heartwarming and inspirational!" Today tickets to the 8 shows would go on sale. Would they add more show? Alan joked not to add day shows as he wanted Sam to have time for his grandchildren. Sam said, "If it's fun I would add as many shows as I can!" Then they received gold microphones from the event and cut the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Would Wai Ka Hung have to a beating in the film/ He said, "I am guest starring as a manager, I don't have to fight. If I don't perform well then the boss and the director would hit me. I rarely am surrounded by so many girls, I really like it. (Are you worried that your fiance would be jealous?) No, I am just working. She is very gracious. She probably believes that few would have their eyes on me." He revealed that he was planning for the wedding to take place on October 6th, but he did not know whether he would be able to book a location.
