The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed Lunar New Year film NEW KING OF COMEDY (SUN HEI KET JI WONG)'s leads Vin E Jingwen and Michael Jack (Lai Yuheng/Zhang Quandan) yesterday attended an audience appreciation event in Kwun Tong. Zhang Quandan performed his girl wooing tricks again and performed NEEDING YOU EVERY MINUTE. He received applause from E Jingwen and the audience.

They both said that they were very happy to reunite during the Lunar New Year and promote together. Earlier was E Jingwen's birthday. Zhang Quandan said that he was unable to be by her side that day but he did send a text message to wish her Happy Birthday. E Jingwen revealed that Sing Yeh gave a big red pocket to her. Zhang Quandan also said that Sing Yeh gave away New Year laisee. Was it big? He blurred out, "Not big, how much is called big?" Then he said it was super big laisee.

Speaking of working with Sing Yeh, did they feel he was hard to get along with? Zhang Quandan joked that he had to collaborate his testimony with E Jingwen to avoid any talk from any mishap. "Sing Yeh is a great person, working with him is certainly stressful. It's my first movie, I am new. He knows so much more than me, of course I would get yelled at. If I don't meet his demands after second or third try, he wouldn't smile as much. When he promotes ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Aaron Kwok Fu Sing yesterday attended an equestrian event. Nominated for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor with PROJECT GUTENBERG (MO SEUNG), Sing Sing again thanked his wife for her support because at the time their daughter was not born yet. His wife's support enabled him to focus on work and not worry about his wife's first pregnancy. Sing Sing said, "PROJECT GUTENBERG had great box office and word of mouth. I have won film awards before, each award has different judging standards. The most important is for the actor to have contributed hard work. I am already very happy with the nomination, it is a honor for me from the voters." Was he confident about beating Chow Yun Fat? Sing Sing said as an actor he definitely had to have confidence, but it would not be excessive as he would treat the matter normally.

Emperor Motion Picture INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK) as of last night at 10PM reached HK$ 27.98 million at the box office. The film's share of explosions, shootings, car chases left the audience breathless, but many questions about the key witness Nick Cheung Ka Fai still lingered. From the start when Ka Fai escaped from the hotel and flew to Australia, he already put all the criminal evidence that he knew on an USB and gave it to ICAC's Sean Lau Ching Wan. Only when Ching Wan arranged for Ka Fai to be the informant, ICAC had no idea! Ching Wan even kept breaking laws on his investigation. Would Ka Fai's undercover identity be recognized?

Director Alan Mak Siu Fai stated that Ka Fai's undercover identity absolutely would not be valid. He said, "Official undercover would have related documents for record and would be accepted legally!" During the trial Ching Wan privately came in contact with two important witnesses, which Mak Siu Fai said that he absolutely could not in real life. "If he runs into them then there is nothing he can do, the law and the investigation has a line. One scene in the film is very memorable for me. Fong Chung Shun in the film tells Ching Wan, he risks everything to investigate the case. That is already greed."

As for another ICAC employee Anthony Ho Yuen Tung while ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

In the film THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI) the divorced Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin ran into the chef Wu Kang-Jen and thus changed her life. Ah Sa named her junior colleague Angela Hui Ching Wan to sing the film theme song IMPROPER, the music video of which earlier began production. Because in the film Ah Sa had a bathing scene, the music video director hoped to edit Ah Sa's footage with Angela's bathing scenes as they would echo each other.

Singing a film theme song and shooting a bathing scene for the first time, Angela during the recording was asked to sing with a waiting to bloom feeling; in the music video she had to give an aesthetic and sentimental feeling. For the bathing scene Angela prepared a lot of wardrobe malfunction prevention products. She said, "I have all kinds of tapes, haha, large, medium, small and all the sizes." Yet during the shoot she actually only had to put on a strap less sports bra, as the crew on the set made fun of Angela for being a master of anxiety. During the shower scene, Angela originally thought that the shoot would have continuous warm water, but the scene only required her to wash her hands after showering her head and body. The temperature was only 12 degrees Celsius that day, and Angela was shivering from the cold. The hairstylist had to lend a hand with a blow dryer for her to keep warm. The music video began shooting at 2PM and went on for ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

In the Emperor Motion Picture INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK), 9 year old child star Jemma Hung Wing Yi played Nick Cheung Ka Fai's daughter. The Chinese Australian native did not speak Cantonese fluently, but that did not stop her "debut" performance with Best Actor Cheung Ka Fai.

Jemma's father Anthony said, "This time my daughter's performance in INTEGRITY was by chance, the director originally came to my home in Australia to scout for location. The home wasn't right, but he asked my daughter to performance. She had no acting experience and didn't know Ka Fai. Although Ka Fai didn't personally teach my daughter how to act, another sister was on the set to teach her. (She only needed one take to push Ka Fai into the water?) Just one take, it went very smoothly. So after the shoot my daughter thought it was a lot of fun. (Would she continue to perform?) She would like to, but she would have the chance to frst. Of course school comes first!"

Deep Ng Ho Hong did not have a lot of screen time but his role was important. In one scene Deep had to force Ka Fai's partners to jump out of a flight. He admitted that the scene was memorable because he not only had to act but also overcome his mental block. "I have a fear of heights, during ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Gigi Leung Wing Kei in the Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR (GUNG HEI BAK POR) had a hilarious performance. In one scene she ran into her dream guy in an elevator but had gas due to a stomach ailment. Luckily a friend spoke up and made the save. The dream guy was played by Gigi's husband Sergio! Gigi said, "The director had a great idea, asking my husband to play a god and helping me to get into character. I realized that my husband had a knack for acting. Actually he normally was very funny and was very pleased with his performance. (Would you like to work together again?) For a comedy or a story that is suitable for our couple relationship, but anything too tragic or turning us into enemies it would be very hard."

As in previous years three awards were presented. Koo Tin Lok and AngelaBaby received the Most Charming Actor and Actress. The film PROJECT GUTENBERG (MO SEUNG)'s director of photography Kwan Chi Yiu won the "award of the year".

Goo Jai received the charming award. He happily said that last year he won many awards in film, to be able to continue winning awards in the Year of the Pig truly was joyous and fortunate for him. The charming actors he admired would at different stages, ages, through film character interpretations, make him feel their charm. Thus there have been too many, but if he had to choose he would choose Darth Vader. As for how to be charming on camera, the position of the cinematographer was very important. It was about aesthetics, lighting, angels. AngelaBaby also agreed with what he said. Would they have the baggage of being idols? Goo Jai said, "No baggage now, even if I do it is only luggage."

Simon Yam Tat Wa, Gigi Leung Wing Kei, Angela Yuen Lai Lam, Filmko boss Alex Wong Hoi Fung two nights ago attended the Hong Kong service dog movie LITTLE Q (SIU Q)'s production wrap banquet. Two of the service dogs that played Little Q appeared, one of the service dogs Pudding was very attached to Brother Wa. Brother Wa even hug Pudding for a photo.

Yam Tat Wa said that before the shoot he brought Pudding home to cultivate the relationship so they became good friends. His dog at home got jealous. He believed that the 2020 Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress would definitely be Pudding. Brother Wa admitted working with puppies was very painful. Because Little Q was played by 8 dogs, 6 of them had over 40 bad takes. Pudding was very nice and at most would have 3 or 4 bad takes, perhaps because they already had a couple relationship.

Would his wife Qi Qi be jealous? Brother Wa said, "No, Qi Qi watched the third party come in. Because Pudding and I have some special training, it is always following me around. It is very obedient." He also said that before the shoot he had a "darkness class", as he had to be blindfolded in a 400 foot dark room to experience the life without vision. The feeling was pretty scary because I had no idea what I would run into. In the end I would remember the setting in the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
