The Pang Ho Cheung directed, Gigi Leung Wing Kei, DaDa Chan Jing, Isabel Chan Yat Ning, Lam Suet, Patrick Tse Yin, Jo Kuk Cho Lam and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa starred Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR (GUNG HEI BAK POR) yesterday released its official trailer. The trailer began with Lam Suet, who "greeted" Yeung Chin Wa and told Chin Wa to "speak English". She was stunned. Chin Wa said that the appearance in the trailer absolutely was not acting because it was a real reaction. "Brother Suet was loud and the set was very quiet. As soon as he turned around he loudly dropped the bomb. I really was stunned from fright. I had to wait for awhile before I remembered to deliver my lines."

DaDa's low cut leap also caught a lot of eyeballs. DaDa said, "The scene actually required wires. Since it was my first time I really was a little nervous. Instead I was the most afraid of wardrobe malfunction. I took all the precautions before appearing on the set." DaDa's niece Little Mantou also performed. DaDa also praised her niece's great performance. In addition, Pang Ho Cheung's movies have always been very "domestic". Aside from adding topical figure "Yam Ho Yan", he also invited internet artist Yanki Din ("Sister Turkey" Ting Ho yan) and Manner's Hou Dee to join the fray.

Dior Cheng Yi Kin and Gigi Ma Lai Ka Yi (Lai Chi) earlier appeared on a radio interview. They both agreed that they did not change much, bu they were much more mature than before. Gigi said that their personalities used to be similar, unable to express themselves or handle matter. They hid a lot inside. She felt that Ekin looked aloof but was very hard working inside. Perhaps since they were both Libras they were more reserved and quiet. Ekin said, "She and Ah Yo (Yoyo Mung Ka Wai) are very close!" Now they both have their own happy families. Gigi felt that happiness actually was very simple, as long as you knew how to be grateful and easy to please the gates of happiness would open for you! "Life has ups and downs, with success and failure, even you are down you have to be grateful, treat setbacks like life training." Ekin agreed, as he felt life should not be too complicated.

The classic film YOUNG AND DANGEROUS (GOO WAT JAI) brought Ekin and Gigi together. Ekin actually remembered Gigi's drinking song WHITE SHIRT the most. He even sang it to Gigi, who was in a white shirt and made Gigi crack up. Ekin said that his deepest impression of her was WHITE SHIRT, as people still remembered this song today. They also recalled the YOUNG AND DANGEROUS era. Gigi said that she used to be a singer, but her costumes in the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Returning to small character comedy after 20 years, the Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed NEW KING OF COMEDY will continue KING OF COMEDY's inspirational spirit as it will fully display the inspirational story of regular people chasing dreams.

Yesterday morning, the film released a funny hand drawn nine frame cartoon poster. On it various characters widened their eyes and opened their mouth to ask a question, "Who will be the new king of comedy?" That night, NEW KING OF COMEDY's first trailer was finally released. The trailer opened with the same question, then various small characters appeared. Through various exaggerated and funny performance they "competed" for this "career with a future". Each inspirational line made people laugh while at the same time igniting the fire inside. "Extras are actors too."

"You have to believe you are the best, not second or third, you are number one!"

"The trailer is all small characters, this is very Chow Sing Chi!" Instead, each small character in the trailer was like the Chow Sing Chi played Wan Tin Sau 20 years ago. They were neglected, overestimated, oppressed, but they still persisted in chasing their dreams. Even when dirtied and disheveled, they still persisted with their dreams and believed that they were the best. This was the spirit that everyone would need in 2019, and the best embodiment of the words "hard work and struggle".

Sonija Kwok Sin Nei, Myolie Wu Hung Yi, Alex Lam Tak Shun, Mimi Kung Chi Yan and Alvina Kong Yan Yin two nights ago attended the Anita Mui Yim Fong memorial film DEAREST ANITA...premiere. With the 15th anniversary of Sister Mui's passing, the Hong Kong Women Development Association presented an "Outstanding Woman" award to her. Mother Mui accepted on her behalf.

Playing one of Sister Mui's fans in the film, Kwok Sin Nei said that originally she wanted to bring her husband to the show. Unfortunately she informed the event too late and no more ticket was available. She could only buy tickets later. Kwok Sin Nei did not have a chance to see Sister Mui in person, but she was her idol. When she heard Sister Mui's songs, all the memories came back. Kwok Sin Nei's character needed to cry with all her might, and she performed wholeheartedly. She said that normally when she cried to her husband it would be ineffective. She said, "My husband is a tough guy but has no tenderness. My crying is useless. Once our daughter and I pretend to cry about not having money for dinner, he didn't fall for it. Of ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

They also wrote messages to Sister Mui. Some quoted Sister Mui's hit YEARS STREAM LIKE WATER. A fan expressed that everyone came on their own. Every year on October 10th (Sister Mui's birthday) and passing date they would come to pay their respect. Sister Mui's fan club would also notify everyone about any memorial events.

Susan Shaw Yam Yam, Suet Lei and Lam Chiu Wing yesterday attended Bread-TV Vibration Awards 2018. Bread TV president Lam Chiu Wing led artists in a moment of silence for director Ringo Lam Lan Tung, who passed away two nights ago, in praising of him enormous contributions to Hong Kong film and the new impact he brought to film. Shaw Yam Yam said that due to how suddenly it happened, she found it hard to get over and accept. Two nights ago she cried all night and her eyes were all red. She and many of her friends would all miss Lam Lan Tung.

Shaw Yam Yam said that she and Lam Lan Tung were both singing students of Chun Yin, thus they have known each other for decades. She really admired how he kept his feet on the ground, his effort and focus on what he did. "I thought he would at least live until 80. In my impression Ah Tung was very strong, he moved more powerfully than the stunt team. He also knew how to teach actors acting, as a person he was humorous and well mannered. He was also a good friend, a good father. I know that before he passed, his wife and son tried their best to wake him. I never expect ths would happen before the New York, I believe it is a tremendous tragedy to his family. However thinking positively, he passed without pain and suffering, I hope his family would bravely live on for him."

Last night the organizer further announced that the remaining concerts from the 31st to January 3th 2019 will also be cancelled; Wa Jai was diagnosed withe flu and needed rest. The organizer said that it would announce details later and apologized to those who have purchased tickets. Many fans on the official site posted that they would understand and support Wa Jai, wish him an early recovery and hope that make up concerts will take place later for him to sing for everyone again.

Lau Tak Wa's concert series this time have run into obstacle after obstacle. Originally it was to take place at the end of last year. Because early last year he was injured after felling off a horse and needed to recover, it was postponed until the end of this year. In early September buyers were attacked while in line at the box office, Wa Jai immediately announced that in person ticket sales were cancelled for online sales. Then last Friday (the 28th), he lost his voice due to a throat infection. Around 9PM he tearfully expressed that the doctor recommended against him continuing the show. Despite his reluctance he did not want everyone to listen his voice like that all night. In addition he truly could not continue, so ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The hall was decorated in a simple and clean manner. Under Mama Wong's photo was Chau Sun and his wife's pink heart floral arrangement and floral arrangements from grandsons.

Chau Sun did not want to trouble his friends so he did not notify anyone. Yet many industry insiders still sent floral arrangements. They included Andy Lau Tak Wa, Sean Lau Ching Wan, Edison Chen Koon Hei, Hins Cheung King Hin, Mo Chun Fai, Alex Fong Chung Shun and Herman Yau Lai To. Chau Sun took the chance to thank them for their thoughtfulness.

The ceremony was Taoist. Chau Sun said, "I didn't want it to be too quiet and upset myself, friends and family, so I found something to make some noise."

Chau Sun said that his younger son did not deliberately return from Canada for the funeral. Before Grandma passed away he already decided to return to Hong Kong for Christmas. Chau Sun said, "I have been busy with taking care of everything, I haven't had the time to settle down. The viewing was ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
