Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam) yesterday appeared at the Hong Kong Film and Television Market's IP MAN Hall to promote IP MAN 4. Speaking of IP MAN reaching its finale with its four installment, Chi Tan admitted the most beautiful thing should come to an end. He was not upset, as perhaps there would be a new start. In addition nothing was forever in film, he even joked that maybe in the next one Hung Doi Lam would return. Would he like to make a fifth film? He said, "Film has a lot of imagination! If the audience asks for it, with new co-stars that can stimulate everyone and new elements artistically, I wouldn't block off my own road."

Would the fighting in IP MAN 4 be more difficult? Chi Tan stated that if the audience would be happy from watching it and he was able to fight, he already did his job. He said, "I fight no matter the genre, in each movie I would look for breakthrough for even more sensory stimulation. Yet each film would have its chemical reaction." Lynn said that she was very envious of how much Yen Chi Tan loved and respected his wife, while making IP MAN she was single and she wanted to find a husband like Yen Chi Tan. In the end she was able to find a good husband.

The Justin Cheung Kin Sing, Jeana Ho Pui Yu and Linah Matsuoka starred new film DECEPTION OF THE NOVELIST (JOK GA DIK FONG YIN: BUK JUNG YAU JUI) officially released its poster. Linah Matsuoka was in the buff. Despite the lack of any nudity or lewd behavior the poster received a ban before its release, as MTR and Kowloon Bus rejected the poster citing nudity, neck wound and knife in hand as reasons. The film company felt that the poster was suitable and would consider other formats to promote.

In the film Cheung Kin Sing, his wife Jeana and their son originally were a happy family, but after the mistress Linah Matsuoka suddenly appeared and rented the room upstairs, a thrilling mystery occurred. In the film Matsuoka had many super sexy costumes, in the stairway in seductive lingerie, and blindfolded in another scene.

Good Results for Duet, Leo Ku Recommends Himself to Be Nancy Wu's Song Producer

Monday March 18, 2019 Hong Kong

Artistes Leo Ku and Nancy Wu went to Tseung Kwan O TVB City to attend the fundraising programme "Pok Oi Charity Show". Leo and Nancy are performing the duet song 《亂世情侶》 live for the first time. They expressed that, after releasing the solo version last year, there was a lot of noise. Some fans requested that the MV's female lead, Nancy Wu, duet; thus, this was accomplished within a short period of time and was plugged on Valentine's day, and the results have been very good. Leo frankly said that it made him think of the hit song 《愛得太遲》 from back then: "I have always been sharing the results of 《亂世情侶》 with Nancy...received a lot of music platforms' number one". Nancy expressed that she was previously mainly filming series; when singing, they were series songs: "Also hope to sing more songs myself. Learned a lot of things in the recording studio this time. (Release an album?) Too far away! Want to release another song". Leo immediately expressed that he could be her song producer.

Regarding this time's recording, Nancy expressed that she recorded first; at the time, Leo suddenly showed up, which made her extremely nervous. However, Leo was full of praise for Nancy: "Nancy really likes to sing. For a half song, [she] deliberately found a teacher and even recorded for two days".
