Eddie Peng Yu-Yan and director Dante Lam Chiu Yin worked together again on their new film GUNG GUP GAU WOON (EMERGENCY RESCUE). Lam Chiu Yin posted a group of Peng Yu-Yan beach training photos online. "@PengYuYan Sunshine, Beach, Training, which one would you choose?" Peng Yu-Yan humorously replied, "Practice makes perfect!" with a photo of him running happily on the beach.

GUNG GUP GAU WOON is about a sea rescue operation. Actors need to have complete grasp of water rescue skills. Thus before the film officially begins production, all actors including Peng Yu-Yan have to go through a highly intense hellish training. It includes diving, night time rescue and other rescue team required skills; from the photos, aside from physical training, Peng Yu-Yan also has antagonistic and flexibility training methods like the sport of frisbee. The range of training could be imagined. Earlier scratched bya a frisbee, Peng Yu-Yan also demonstrates his "risk taking" work attitude.

Isabella Leong Lok Sze, DaDa Chan Jing, Hanjin Tan (Chan Woon Yan), Tsui Tin Yau and others yesterday attended the production start ceremony for the Lunar New Year film GUNG HEI BAK POR. Looking much slimming, Isabella said that she might have lost the baby fat. She absolutely did not have anorexia as rumored. Currently she weighed 118 pounds and was not considered too thin. She said that in the film she would play a "sassy lady", but she was not at liberty to reveal the details because she would only guest star for two days. Actually this collaboration happened by chance. Isabella said, "A week ago I ran into the director at a shopping center. He said that he happened to want to ask me to make a movie and the production would start next week. I asked could it be such a coincidence? At the time he said that he did not have a script yet. I just got the script yesterday. I was very afraid of working without preparation. The director truly overestimated me. If I didn't run into him, I wouldn't have the chance to make this movie. Yet he ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Stephy Tang Lai Yan and Grace Chan Hoi Lam in the film KEYBOARD WARRIORS (HEI DAI JO) played sisters without parents. The cop Tang Lai Yan also acted as a mother, Chan Hoi Lam was very rebellious. The sisters were in a love hate relationship and constantly argued, but real emotions came from the fighting.

Grace made a movie for the first time and felt strange and nervous. She was also afraid that her performance would not be good enough. Stephy had over ten years of film experience but she did not detect any nervousness from Grace. Her performance did not resemble that of a new comer's either, thus they had a very pleasant experience from working together. In the film they had many passionate argument scenes. Grace even had to use foul language to yell at her older sister. Because the director added it without warning Stephy, during the performance the normally polite Grace surprised her. She was able to express it, which was the response that the director wanted. In addition, during the argument they would have physical confrontations. Stephy said that once she pushed the frail Grace and she fell two feet back. She really was afraid that Grace would have broken bones. Yet because Grace was slim, Stephy often did not dare to stand too forward to avoid looking too fat. Grace said ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam), Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Andy Hu Chi On, Grace Chan Hoi Lam and others two nights ago attended an award ceremony. Chau Sau Na was limping. She said, "Earlier I made an action film and even had to run in high heels. I have high arch feet. The doctor said that I am not suitable for wearing heels all the time, but I am vain and work requires it I ended up with foot pain and bunion. So I am not at work I would take off the shoes to rest. Lately for film audience appreciation events I would wear sneakers. The doctor suggests for me to add shoe padding. I know now in heels I don't walk pretty, I look like a penguin."

Sister Na revealed that after finishing her film promotion she would have time off. Then she could treat her foot pain and go on vacation. She said, "I welcome dates at any time, but so far I haven't run into ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Scud (Wan Cheung) directed, Amanda Lee Wai Man and Susan Shaw Yam Yam starred film THIRTY YEARS OF ADONIS two nights ago held its premiere. Scud revealed that he was already an Amanda fan in the Echo era and wanted to invite his idol to make a movie and sing the theme song long ago, but Amanda at the time turned him down to vocal cord issues. This time she finally was able to. Aside from performing, Amanda's songs were also used for the film score.

Amanda revealed that this time she guest starred as a singer and had an ambiguous relationship with the protagonist. She even had a back baring scene. She was so nervous that she was sweating bullets and kept holding on to her towel to avoid wardrobe malfunction. Did she give her husband any advanced notice? She said, "Of course, my husband didn't mind. He even joked that I should make a car rocking scene because the protagonist in the story is a driver. He is all talk, haha!"

Gillian Chung Yun Tung, JJ Jia (Ga Hiu Sun), Candy Yu On On, Ling Man Lung two nights ago attended their film MISSING (SUK JUNG)'s production wrap banquet. The soon to be official "Mrs. Lai" Ah Gil was radiant and rather talkative. Speaking of her December wedding banquet's progress, Ah Gil revealed, "We just went to Mexico for five days for an underwater wedding photo shoot. The shoot was an adventure for me. The temperature there was only in the teens (Celsius). It was very cold and very rough as I was in the water for several hours. This was also the first time I was in Mexico. After I saw JURASSIC PARK i thought it was very pretty, so we went to Mexico for the shoot. In the end I got local make up artist and hair stylist, I was made up like it was for Halloween. I looked like I was Thai. You couldn't question the make up artist, but he insisted on very heavy make up and said 'under water is different'. Luckily in water it couldn't be seen clearly, before going in I didn't dare to pose for photos. When I got back to the hotel after the shoot I passed by a mirror, and I scared myself when I looked into the mirror. (Did your husband have any reaction?) He made fun of me. I was a few degrees darker and he was a few degrees lighter, but the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Cheung Kai Chung and Chrissie Chau Sau Na two nights ago promoted the film HOTEL SOUL GOOD (NUI WONG CHONG DOH JING) with a street performance. They joked that they formed the band "Tonight" just for this promotion. It was the band that came together in the shortest time and the soonest to break up in the Hong Kong music scene, as it perhaps took 10 minutes. Sister Na was only responsible for pretending to sing, while Cheung Kai Chung played his song WOOD GRAIN. They attracted a passionate uncle to dance along.

They said that they have been very actively attending audience appreciation events all over Hong Kong. On Halloween's eve they would still do the same. Would they dress up? Cheung Kai Chung joked, "I would be Chau Sau Na, and she would be Cheung Kai Chung. I hope to be able to bring in whole families to the movie." He said that he also took his son to see it. It was his son's first Hong Kong film. His son not only said that it was entertaining but also cried from certain scenes. He could not help but say to his son, "You are pretty romantic!"
