Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin yesterday appeared at a cosmetic brand event. On the first work day after the Lunar New Year holiday, she took said that starting work on the Lunar 7th was the luckiest day. Yet two days before work, she already only ate vegetable to lose weight. Ah Sa also shared her beauty secrets. She felt that she did not need to dress too provocatively, showing too much would only make matter worse. The best would be expressing your own true nature.

The Ah Sa starred film THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI) was selected for film festivals in Osaka and Holland. She admitted that she was very happy but did not know whether she would be able to make time to attend. If she would be able to go to Osaka she definitely would pig out. The Hong Kong Film Awards would announce its nominations today. She felt that she would leave everything award related up to fate.

The Emperor Motion Picture INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK) since the Lunar New Year's Day kept climbing at the box office. As for last night the Lunar Fifth its cumulative box office has already reached HK$ 17 million. Not only the leads Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Sean Lau Ching Wan and Karena Lam Ka Yun but also guest star Best Actress Anita Yuen Wing Yi deserved the credit. She stated that she only gave the nod because of her former co-star Ching Wan; another guest star Ben Yuen Fu Wa also remembered before trapped in a snowy mountain for a few days for his scene.

Guest starring as the "custom chief", Best Actress Yuen Wing Yi first agreed to participate not only because the character was fun and her "family" connection with director Alan Mak Siu Fai. Actually the biggest reason would be scenes with Lau Ching Wan, with whom she was full of chemistry with. She did not expect that the first day of work would take place in the early morning, which left her tongue tied while delivering her lines. "Luckily I am professional and still young, I can take it!"

She also admitted that the actor she has the best chemistry with absolutely was Lau Ching Wan. Although they worked together on ten films, privately they spoke less than ten sentences. However as soon as they took their marks they naturally would get each other. She said that she did not coax ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

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)
