The event even premiered NEW KING OF COMEDY's theme song music video GALE.

In the past Chow Sing Chi's film would always have "Sing Girls", this time would be a limited girl group "Gale Girls". They opened the film promotion. One of the stars Wang Baoqiang also made an appearance.

The film THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI) was seen as another self challenging breakthrough film for Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin after SARA (CHOR GEI). Not only the Hong Kong audience is looking forward to it, many foreign film festivals are deeply interested in the subject of a woman from growing to transforming, proper to improper exploration. The first confirmed film festival will be the 12th Holland Asian Film Festival in March. THE LADY IMPROPER was selected as the closing film. Lead actress Ah Sa expressed her excitement. "I am very happy, I hope all the viewers would like THE LADY IMPROPER!"

The film festival pointed out, "Holland Asian Film Festival has always promoted woman directors and films that reflected Asian women facing their own unique challenges, as well as provided an European market facing platform for new directors. The event's closing film choice also stresses this point, like the earlier THE GREAT BUDDHA+. THE LADY IMPROPER is the independent filmmakers Tsang Tsui Shan's five film, with the breakthrough performance that Choi Cheuk Yin brings. The film at the same time perfectly echoes this year's newly added Culinary Section, which helps with reminding visitors from everywhere Hong Kong's cafe culture, its unforgettable flavor and atmosphere."

Director Ringo Lam Lan Tung passed away on the 29th last month at the age of 63. Two nights ago a wake was held at Po Fook Hill. Friends like Chow Yun Fat and Johnnie To Kei Fung paid their respect.

Yesterday morning To Kei Fung and his wife, Vincent Wan Yeung Ming and Soi Cheang Po Shui arrived to send their friend on his final journey. Around 9AM the funeral began. To Kei Fung's assistant came out and said, "I know that everyone has their assignments, please just take one photo. This is what Mrs. Lam wants. Thank you everyone!"

Later several employees brought out three partitions to separate the media. After the ceremony ended, Lam Lan Tung's family left in the hearse and tour bus. The hearse was covered in white cloth, probably to keep the family from media exposure.

Friends including To Kei Fung, Tsui Hark, John Shum Kin Fun and Sylvia Chang will hold a memorial on the 26th for friends to salute director Lam Lan Tung one last time.

He answered, "All the ones with big busts are named Lin, like many in renovation are called Brother Fai, four eyes called Ah Ming, weaklings called Ah Keung, didn't you notice?" DaDa said,"No everyone with big busts are called Lin." The director said, "I feel in general it's not right for people with big busts to be without 'Lin', so your name is wrong." DaDa said, "So I should be called Chan Lin or Chan Jing Lin."

Rarely making any Hong Kong film in recent years, Tian Niu earlier worked on the Lunar New Year film A LIFETIME TREASURE (YU JU YU BO). She stated that she was drawn to the story. Although she has not been in a Hong Kong film in years, she joked that after a second at work she was already caught up and even often changed channels to use Hong Kong slang. She felt very excited and very challenged, praising how much fun she had.

She stated that she missed Hong Kong very much. After working on TVB programs she left Hong Kong and went to work in the Mainland. She said, "Many people said that I was already retired, actually no! Everyday I would never stop, I wouldn't stop for more than three days. As soon as I would I would get sick. I feel like I am a racecar, the more horsepower you give the further I go. If stopped then it would be done for."

Tian Niu also thanked producer Sandy for thinking of her and inviting her to perform Actually before the production began, her role was not cast. Sandy happened to see a movie that she was in and realized that she was still active onscreen. Thus after discussing with director and screen writer Andrew Lam Man Chung she contacted her through online platform. She said, "She very sincerely sent me the story, but the first time that moved me wasn't Lam Man Chung or the salary. It was the principle of caring for the elderly .....

The Lunar New Year film INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG MO: YIM MOK) asked Hacken Lee Hak Kun to perform its theme song BURIED ALIVE. Lee Hak Kun stated that he felt the importance of the mission. "When I recorded before, as long as I was pleased the producer would accept it. This time is for a Lunar New Year film. I hope to be able to help with the promotion. The most important is for the director and the producer to accept the goods. Luckily during the recording they didn't come to supervise, otherwise the pressure would have been even greater!" Hacken knew Alan Mak Siu Fai's work as a director like the back of his hand. Hacken said, "I like the atmosphere and the tension Director Mak creates the most, everything comes very naturally so the audience can easily be in the midst of it; during the recording, I try to imagine the three leads in the film and explore their characters through music and sound."

Did Hacken's acting bug act up? Hacken said, "Making movies is more than just asking for them. Whether an actor runs into a character, or a singer into a song, each time is an opportunity, destiny. I look forward to working with Director Mak as an actor very much, I can even play a tree, pedestrian A or the numerous cops, CIDs that are always in his movies. Does he have any random role for me ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Singer Leo Ku's MV for the new song 《亂世情侶》 released on the 8th. This time, former partner Nancy Wu was found to be the MV's female lead. The last time that the two collaborated was already 14 years ago. At the time, Nancy acted as the female lead for the MV of Leo's 《愛與誠》. Speaking of the past, they both highly praised each other for not changing at all. Leo said to Nancy, "A really special feeling. We were chatting before, and we both said that so many years have passed in the blink of an eye. Thus, to be able invite you to film my MV again, I am extremely happy. Her series filming schedule is really busy...has not been the female lead in an MV for someone in a long time. Thus, here, I have to specially thank her. A lot of people's so-called 'flashbacks'...I think that us shooting an MV again is it".

The MV talks about a couple that is saving money for wedding plans. Each is respectively busy with work, causing troubles in their love life. The woman goes to the office and is frequently OT-ing; the man is a warehouse clerk who works the overnight shift. It seems as though they are planning for the future together but have actually forgotten the person beside them. In the end, Leo realizes this and runs to Nancy's company to find her...a touching ending. Leo said, "Planned for the future but forgot the present. Forgot the original meaning of the two coming together; thus, this song plus this story is a story that is greatly emotionally stirring in love". Nancy also said, "There is this situation not only in the office. Actually, also like this in the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
