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.

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)
