The film CHASING THE DRAGON (JUI LUNG) after almost a week in release made close to HK$ 10 million. It opened on top in Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan. In the Mainland box office it broke HK$ 250 million in 5 days.

The film brought back the 60s and the 70s Hong Kong streets and even built the Kowloon Walled City brick by brick. In the film the Chouzhou gang brethren Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Philip Keung Ho Man, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung, Yu Kang lived in a subdivided room in the Kowloon Walled City when they first arrived in Hong Kong. In addition when Lui Lok went into the city for an negotiation he was attacked. Crippled Ho risked his life to save Lui Lok and solidified their trust. Yen Chi Tan said, "The Kowloon Walled City was a very attractive landmark in mob films. Building the Kowloon Walled City again picked up past Hong Kong mob film nostalgia; I also tried to use 60s Funk and Soul music, which was rarely used in Hong Kong films."

Artiste Moses Chan (陳豪) accepts an interview at radio station and mentioning about his role image in Line Walker: The Prelude (使徒行者2) series is known as "Gentleman Uncle (大叔紳士團)", he says: "Nothing to say at all. I try many images and feel it suits me the most." Moses admits his role character is a gentleman: "He works in navy before and takes over his father's black triad business. Although he looks refined, but he is very cold-blooded when killing his enemies and it makes the role character realistic."

Moses adds that he thinks about having tattoo for his role character: "Usually, a triad boss will have tattoo but I hear that it has changed now. (Losing weight for the series?) I am down by 2 sizes as use the wrong method to lose weight. I do not know Louis Cheung (張繼聰) at that time and eat little and feel very dry. I fail to reach the desired effect despite going to gym." He also praises Louis is very professional and learns the way of nutrition from him: "I eat more now but it is effective."

Rumours start to circulate around after Vincent Wong (王浩信) is seen having steamboat with his female filming partner. He says: "I feel very helpless. We have steamboat together when filming Legal Mavericks (踩過界) series and the film producer is around as well. It is normal that we watch the end results when it is airing and are good filming partners. Hopefully everyone recognises my efforts. (Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) and you have steamboat together in VIP room?) Of course not. Why will I do something to harm myself? (Somebody knock on your door for 5 minutes and you ignore it?) Nope. I only use the VIP room for my family. (Does Sisley feel unhappy upon reading the report?) We feel embarrassing and do not want our family to feel unhappy. We are really pitiful and I will not answer again after today. I know the media and celebrities are good friends and please help us. (You are pointed for going out and having fun together?) Including our friends too. I spend my time on my daughter and hope to find a good primary school for her. All my friends know I keep a distance from them."

Artiste Koni Lui (呂慧儀) and Angela Tong (湯盈盈) are promoting TVB sitcom, Come Home Love: Lo and Behold (愛.回家之開心速遞). Angela reveals her daughter will have 10 days of holidays and is planning some programmes with free cost for Mid-Autumn Festival as she is still small: "My hubby, Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂) is in overseas for few months and he is not around during Mid-Autumn festival. He tells me to bring our children to visit him in Taiwan and see if he can apply some leave."

As Angela is on leave, she pushes the heavy responsibility to Koni: "I am busy during Mid-Autumn Festival too as Angela is on leave for 10 days. My son is growing up slowly and is playing with lanterns and eating mooncakes now. I cannot reject him feeding me and will lose weight after eating it."

Mentioning about Joyce Tang (滕麗名) is suspected of expecting, Angela says: "Is it? I have no idea." Koni says: "I know she is on leave now and spends time with her husband. It is already 2 weeks. (She is taken photo of her husband helping her.) They are always a sweet couple. (Do not feel she is expecting when filming?) Nope."
