The Wong Cho Lam directed Lunar New Year film I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! (NEI MAI LEI, NGOR OI NEI!) has been in release for over two weeks, made HK$ 8.8 million and was the worst performer among the 4 Hong Kong Lunar New Year films. Even so, Cho Lam still worked hard on audience appreciation to pump up the box office. His highest record was 13 shows all over Hong Kong in a day. So far he has already gone to 125 shows. Because this was his directing debut, he knew that he had a lot of shortcoming. Thus he went to the movies to listen to the audience in person for future improvement. As of yesterday the Sean Lau Ching Wan, Nick Cheung Ka Fai and Karena Lam Ka Yun starred INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK) led with HK$ 28.84 million and still HK$ 400,000 for the single box office.

Jessica Hester Hsuan (Suen Huen), Sammy, former Hong Kong team cyclist Wong Kam Bo yesterday attended the "virtual velodrome" launch ceremony.

At the end of next month she would have to work on BACK TO THE PAST (CHUM CHUN GEI) for Louis Koo Tin Lok's film company in the Mainland, but so far Suen Huen still has not received an official script. "At first the story kept changing. Goo Jai welcomed everyone's suggestions. I also mentioned my friends' suggestions and suggested certain actors at the request of others to Goo Jai. Goo Jai thought the ideas were decent. This time for th film version he encouraged actor participation and suggestion. Earlier I said that I was very worried abou all the action scenes, Goo Jai said with (Sammo) Hung Kam Bo as the action director even if I didn't know how to fight he would make me look good. He told me I had nothing to worry about, but with Big Brother Hung Kam Bo I would have some pressure. Lately Goo Jai said that I won't have to fight much, so I was more relaxed. Ultimately I don't have much confidence in action scenes, and I am afraid that I would hinder the progress."
