Frankie Lam and Jessica Hsuan, who left the company for nine years and five years respectively, collaborated on filming TVB's first 4K series filmed entirely on location, "My Unfair Lady". The two have filmed numerous series, frequently working all night. When asked about their current attitude when accepting jobs, the two coincidentally said, "Quality!"

Spending a Lot of Money to Film Entirely on Location

Filming a series for TVB again this time, the two both expressed that they agreed to it because they encountered a good script. "My" was filmed with a 4K technique and was entirely on location. Frankie frankly said that it was a big improvement: "The feeling was very different. [Filming] entirely on location requires a lot of money. A 28-episode series typically films for three months. We filmed for five months. The filming crew filmed it like a movie. The most important was having ten hours of rest every day!" Jessica said that her partner is an important deciding factor in whether she accepts a series or not. She laughingly said that, when she and Frankie were filming the series, the two would not arrive on time; rather, they would 'compete in arriving early', which made other actors not even dare to be late.

Colliding with a Holiday, Ratings Still Increase

Although the premiere week of "My" collided with a holiday, the ratings did not fall but increased. In addition, there is a bunch of golden phrases in the series, and there are many good-looking actors, including Natalie Tong, Samantha Ko, Vincent Wong, etc., taking part, successfully starting off with a bang! Frankie and Jessica frankly said that they did not expect the ratings to be so ideal despite colliding with a holiday. The last time the two collaborated ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Michelle Wai Sze Nga and Bryant Mak Chi Lok two nights ago attended the film THE SLEEP CURSE (SUK MIN)'s premiere. The event arranged for a human brain shaped cake and no one expected that Chau Sun was actually very afraid of bloody food! In the end Sze Nga was responsible for cutting the cake. Chau Sun said that grandmasters actually did not need to fight minor fighters, and martial art was not as simple as fighting. It contained even more philosopher within.

Earlier announced that he would no longer make any horror film, Wong Chau Sun said on th stage that if this film performed well at the box office he would not mind making another. However he said that he would only make other genres, and he did not hold any expectation for the new film box office. He joked that even if it made more he would not get any more money.

Currently busy with his end of August play, Chau Sun admitted that he felt a lot of pressure. He said, "Because it is a comedy, I make a lot of appearance so the lines are very hard to remember." ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Donnie Yen Chi Tan yesterday brought his wife Cissy Wang and appeared in Kuching, Malaysia for the ASEAN International Film Festival and Awards press conference. Fans jammed the event location entrance. When Chi Tan arrived, viewers passionately cheered. He stopped for photos with fans.

Chi Tan's IP MAN film series has been extremely popular. When IP MAN 3 was released in Malaysia last year it broke the 3 million RM highest grossing Chinese film box office record. Due to IP MAN's popularity, Chi Tan was repeatedly asked when the fourth film will start production. Even children was deeply affected. A four year old fan in order to see his idol waited for an entire afternoon with his mother. He even busted through the crowd to present a doll.

Chi Tan admitted that each time he went to Malaysia he was able to experience the Malaysian fans' passion. "IP MAN 4 has already begun its preparation. I hope to be the new installment will be able to again bring surprises to everyone with producer (Raymond) Wong Pak Ming, director (Wilson) Yip Wai Shun and action director Yuen Woo Ping."
