Certainly already very happy to have been nominated because learned a lot of things during the filming experience; it was a rare experience in my life".

The Emperor Lunar New Year film INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK) since its Lunar New Year's Day opening has been the single day box office champion, making over HK$ 11 million over four days of Spring Festival at the box office! Director Alan Mak Siu Fai turned leads Sean Lau Ching Wan and Nick Cheung Ka Fai back to 20 year old "Young Fresh Meat". Actually this around two minute long scene not only took over half a year but also HK$ 10 million!

Near the end of the Lunar New Year film INTEGRITY, with the latest special effects Ching Wan and Ka Fai appeared as 20 year old "Young Fresh Meat". Their conversation at school brought back the POLICE CADET era Ching Wan and the 20 year old Ka Fai.

Mak Siu Fai revealed, "Many movies in flashbacks would try to find young people who resemble the leads. If 500 people auditioned maybe 3 would be chosen. The question would be these 3 people wouldn't know how to act." He admitted that he contacted Hollywood special effect companies but received a quote in astronomical figures. He thus invited Enoch (Chan Chi To) to be INTEGRITY's visual special effect director and said that no one in Hong Kong has done it before, but he believed in their abilities and thus would rather spend the money on them.

Finally after 3 months, the most ideal age 20 setting for Ching Wan and Ka Fai was found. Then they were handed off to different teams' professionals to handle the modeling, muscle, and the lighting ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Wong Cho Lam two nights ago went to cheer on Kaki Leung, Roxanne Yeung Lok Man, Crystal Fung Ying Ying and Bowie Cheung Bo Yi's stall at the Kuen Tong New Year Market. He prepared over 100 movie tickets to his film I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! (NEI MAI LEI, NGOR OI NEI!) as gifts. He said that he has not been to the New Year Market for a very long time. "Lately I have been to the movies a lot, after that I would rush home to see my daughter. Actually here I have girls to see too, but the girl at my home is the prettiest." Because he has been busy with the promotions, so far he still has not have time to have the Lunar New Year dinner. He joked that he was afraid his wife Leanne Li Yanan would yell at him.

Speaking of the busy promotional schedule before the Lunar New Year, both said that they could not welcome it more because starting on the Lunar New Year's Day they would have a few days off. Ka Fai joked that with the rare holiday he was locked in on slacking off, sleeping and eating at home. "Originally I wanted to go on vacation but we would have a New Year visit conflict, we would have to go to Sister Sin's (Pak Suet Sin) so we couldn't go! (Would you cook at home?) I am too lazy! Usually I would slack off, sleep and eat, be myself, rest until I was like someone with nothing to live for! However sometimes I would exercise a little, after UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN) I would been keeping up with the work out!" Directing in recent years, would he follow up again in the Year of the Pig?

Despite being with child, Eliza Sam Lai Heung earlier teamed with Vincent Wong Ho Shun on Wong Cho Lam's directing debut, the Lunar New Year film I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! (NEI MAI LEI, NGOR OI NEI!) shot an entertaining "cool guy, hot girl" scene. One was healthy, sexy and the other showed off his arms and tip top sharp. Many workers praised the light busting "nosebleed index", absolutely a big Easter egg for the film. Heung Heung was in great shape during the shoot and did not show any sign of pregnancy at all. Thus when workers learned that they knew during the shoot she was already pregnant, they were all surprised and praised her for getting her all to support her friend Cho Lam.
