The Filmko Lunar New Year film THE MONKEY KING 3 (SAI YAU GEI NUI YI GOK) made 600 million yuan RMB at the Mainland box office. Gigi Leung Wing Kei yesterday attended a New Year event to promote the film. Gigi said that spending the holiday in Hong Kong, she was able to take her daughter Sofia on Lunar New Year visits, expand her life circle and meet even more new friends.

Gigi said that her daughter was a curious baby as she wanted to try anything new. When her daughter saw her mean look in THE MONKEY KING 3, she had to explain to her. Even her friends' children asked her daughter if Mama would yell at her. Her daughter answered that was not the case. Gigi explained to her daughter that her character was like a strict mother. She was not a bad person. Gigi said that fans praised her performance this time as a big breakthrough, but some fans still were not pleased that she was no pretty enough and her hair line was too high. Gigi explained, "Actually it's just make up. I have to clarify that my hair is still very thick and full. The character aside from not being pretty enough is truly a great challenge."

Gigi said that she gained a few pounds after all the holiday food. Earlier when she made BAK GOR NUI YUN YUT TOI HEI director Stanley Kwan Kam Peng asked her to lose five or six pounds. Now her weight was on the rise again.

Tony Leung (梁朝偉) participates in Monster Hunt 2 (捉妖記2) film and has several scenes with the cartoon characters. Hence, he needs to act with air frequently. The movie company releases a preview clip about question and answer section and Tony has a quick and amusing reaction. Asking about the type of monster that he wants to be, Tony says: "A monster who will not gain weight. (What is your favourite food during Lunar New Year?) Turnip cake. (Which cartoon character will you choose if you have an additional air ticket?) Huba...... As it eats less food." Looks like Tony is afraid of gaining weight but he loves to eat turnip cake though.

As the movie king, Tony feels it is silly to speak his dialogue with air and reveals he cannot add in his own dialogue in the film this time. He loves to film action and love movie themes other than comedy.
