Playing a guerrilla team member Wong Yuen Chi appeared in a Hakka village girl look. She admitted that she was very nervous during the shoot. "Ip Tak Han is a great elder. Working with her is very comfortable. Everyone's professionalism and focus make me get into character even faster." The captive scene was extremely memorable for her. In the story she, Ip Tak Han and others failed and were captured. The Japanese military took them to a dark room for interrogation. "The actor who played the officer was very in character. As soon as he rushed into the dark room he started slapping Ip Tak Han. My fear came from the bottom of my heart."

The film WU KONG yesterday held a Beijing press conference. Director Derek Kwok Chi Kin, producer Huang Jianxin led the "WU KONG Heavenly Team" Eddie Peng Yu-Yan, Oho Ou, Qiao Shan to appear together. Thus even though Shawn Yue Man Lok was unable to appear he went online to connect with everyone and even recalled his 15 years of valuable friendship with Peng Yu-Yan. At the same time, several actors displayed their "Heavenly Team style". They not only told on each other but also ganged up against the director. In the end they even announced that the Heavenly Team "officially graduated".

Peng Yu-Yan, Oho Ou and Qiao Shan each carried their symbolic weapons. Peng Yu-Yan appeared oddly with his staff, Oho Ou's blade and Qian Shan's bow were rather eye catching.

When they talked about their characters, Peng Yu-Yan as the most rebellious and the most "uproarious" Wu Kong in history was dubbed the "Heavenly Team Wildest". Oho Ou was the most faithful character truly deserved the "Heavenly Team Most Faithful". Qiao Shan could not change his comedy star ways and selfishly chose "Heavenly Team Most Handsome" for himself. Then the trio rapidly made fun of each other and picked the most suitable funny description for each other. Qiao Shan was stuck with the "Heavenly Team's Most Tenth Grade Cute", Peng Yu-Yan was called the "Heavenly Team's most forced depressed".

Lok Jai was unable to appear in person but appeared on a call with everyone. He ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Two nights ago his boss Dr. Peter Lam Kin Ngok, mentor and friend director Johnnie To Kei Fung and friend Louis Koo Tin Lok held a birthday dinner for him. Siu Chai indeed was a good man. His manager gave him a big lai see, the total of which he donated to "Fresh Wave" to support Hong Kong film creative talent. Siu Chai refused to reveal the amount but stressed that it was all in Hong Kong currency. Siu Chai's birthday wish was good health. For days he has been receiving well wishes and gifts from good friends. He said, "I am very lucky!"

"Fresh Wave" founder and president To Sir gave Siu Chai a limited edition bottle of "Johnnie To wine". He even autographed the box for him. Siu Chai happily said, "Because I rarely drink and this bottle of wine has such a sentimental value, I will properly store it. Very soon it will become the only one in the world, making it even more valuable!" Siu Chai said that he admired To Sir very much. He said, "I have always played the good guy, righteous characters. Over a decade ago To Sir asked me to play a robber in BREAKING NEWS (DAI SI GEIN). At the time I said I didn't know how to, but he said, 'Once you are on the set you will be able to!' Then I got to the set with To Sir's direction, I really was able to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Alex Fong Lik Sun, Shirley Yeung Szeki, Michelle Wai Sze Nga and Louis Cheung Kai Chung two nights ago attended the film ALL MY GODDESS (NUI YUN WING YUEN SI DUI DIK)'s premiere. Wai Sze Nga in the film played a couple with Ah Chung and even had a passionate kiss scene. She said, "It's first time I kissed someone's husband, it really was very awkward because I know his wife (Kay) Tse ON Kay. After the shoot, Ah Chung said that his assistance definitely would have sent the photo to his wife." She praised Ah Chung as very professional and a comedy expert. He was able to lighten the mood on the set, but sometimes she had a tough time with holding back her laughter.

Siu Fong in the film had a passionate scene with Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau). She took the initiative. He stated that he has not been so lucky in real life. Siu Fong said that Sum Yau was busy with her series in the Mainland so they would not be able to run into each other again during the promotion. To him, the most difficult part of the film was dancing the tango. Siu Fong said, "I have never danced, luckily this scene was only a dozen seconds or so. Under the guidance of the on set dance instructor I passed."
