Sam Hui Koon Kit and Alan Tam Wing Lun will perform 11 shows at the Hong Kong Coliseum starting on August 5th. Like before, they urged good friends and fans to make donations in lieu of flowers to the charity organization Healthy Hong Kong to help seniors in need receive free Chinese medical services and treatment; the names of all donors will be posted on the appreciation board instead of the sea of flowers at the venue to express their gratitude. Hui Koon Kit and Alan felt that this was a win win situation. Flowers usually would only last a few days, after they wilted they would become trash. If the money went to charity instead it was both environmental protection and helping those in need.

Female director Lam Suk Ching earlier issued a statement and claimed while shooting a Mainland series in Haikou she was sexually assaulted and almost raped by a Mainland pilot in training. Afterward, the Haikou police also expressed on its official blog that it would further investigate the matter as a felony and that the suspect was already in police custody. Director Lam two nights ago issued a second statement in regard to the sexual assault. In it she thanked everyone for their concern, the Hong Kong Federation of Film Workers and the Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild for their support, as well as Tin Kai Man, Andrew Lau Wai Keung and Stanley Kwan Kam Peng for their assistance. She said that because the case was under investigation she was not at liberty to reveal the details.

Veteran musician Leon Ko Sai Chiang's interpretation of film scores as a musical, THE AMAZING FILMPHONY, earlier came in an end. This time he worked with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta on classic music from PERHAPS LOVE (YU GOR OI), THE WARLORD (TAU MING JONG), MONSTER HUNT, THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI), MR. CINEMA (LO GONG JING JUEN) and drew many celebrities like Hacken Lee Hak Kun, Alica Lau Nga Lai, Connie Chan Bo Chu and Dexter Yang Tin King.

This time Leon used film score to connect the stage. He not only asked four outstanding stage actors Jarita Wan Cheuk Yin, Margaret Cheung Kwok Wing, Jordan Cheng Kwan Chi and Rick Lau Wing Hung to perform but also personally performed one of the songs YOU LOVE ME. He said that he has always been behind the scene and rarely performed on camera. However this time he performed because a few parts would be easier to grasp the expression if he performed himself. He was unusually nervous. Even the conductor Yip Wing Sie joked that Leon's face would turn red from just saying a few more words.

After the performance, Leon would take a break and joked that he would sleep to relieve his stress. In the past he was too focused on work and often worked until the middle of the night, the next day he would have to get up early. Now he has learned that health would be the most important.

Francis Ng Chun Yu and Nancy Wu Ting Yan's inspirational film MEN ON THE DRAGON (YIK LAU DAI SHOOK) will open soon. Earlier they promoted the film. Chun Yu praised the experienced Ting Yan became prettier and more durable, self confident, Ting Yan felt that Chun Yu has not changed at all and still was just as great.

The film was shot in the summer last year. Four mid level broadband internet company employees in order to "save their jobs" joined the company's newly formed dragon boat team and began the tough dragon boat training. Although he had to shoot the dragon boat scenes outdoors, Chun Yu said that they were a lot of fun. Did he have to practice before hand? Chun Yu honestly said, "I didn't bother to practice, since I didn't know how to anyway. The character doesn't know (how to row a dragon boat), so I used that ignorant feeling for the shoot. As the shoot went on I learned. Actually it was very simple. However everyday we worked for ten hours, after three days in a row I was very tired. Then came the final dragon boat race, I won't get to row again because it was ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The last time Cheung Ka Fai and Chng Wan worked together was already five years ago. He said that he was the most comfortable with Ching Wan. Ching Wan joked, "Because I have to do it all!" Ka Fai answered, "Because when we work together, Ching Wan would open up and show me his heart. It's very naked!" Speaking of Ka Fai working on location for a month in Australia for "on the run" scene while Ching Wan remained in Hong Kong for the studio shoot, Ching Wan pretended to be upset and joked, "We were pinching pennies in Hong Kong, what more do you have to say!" Ka Fai also joked, "When I got back I called Ching Wan, he said that he was at work everyday to make money for me to spend."

Veteran artist Stephen Tsang Kwong Chin passed away on the 22nd from liver cancer at age 70. His wife confirmed the news. Active in the film industry in the 80s, he participated in films like DOUBLE TROUBLE (DAI SIU BUK LEUNG), WHY ME? (HOR BI YAU NGOR) and THE CRAZY COMPANIES (JUI GAI SUEN YAU) and worked with superstars like Chow Yun Fat, Kara Wai Ying Hung and Chingmy Yau Suk Ching. He mostly played minor characters in the film. He once operated a film developing company and was familiar with many industry insiders.

Ken Low Wai Kwong expressed regret over his friend's passing. "He is absolutely the nicest guy, the best boss in all Hong Kong. He had the respect of 100% of the film industry! He really liked to have a few drinks with friends. Later he moved to Shenzhen and occasionally would come back for dinner." Once a partner in a bar, artist Duen Wai Lun was shocked to hear the news. "The last time I saw him was around the end of last year, at the time he was pretty good, only thinner." Director Jingle Ma Chor Sing have known Tsang Kwong Chin for years and praised his loyalty. Back then if filmmakers owed money to their film developing, he would not mind.

Carlos Chan Ka Lok recently took many new film roles. Earlier he missed the premiere of his film HOUSE OF THE RISING SONS (HING DAI BAN). He suddenly had an idea and invited fans to apply for a showing at the cinema. He said, "I haven't organized such an event since I got into the business. Originally I thought 50 people would be enough, but on the first day the quota was already reached. So I changed venue at the last minute and rented a cinema with over 100 capacity. It really was sold out, leaving only the front row. So I sat there myself." Ka Lok said that watching the film with fans felt different. "Our response was huge. They would laugh with you, cry with you, their support was sincere." Earlier he also did a flash promotion on the streets of Mongkok with other actors. After just one song they were already surrounded. The crew immediately arranged for them to leave in a hurry.

Francis Ng and Nancy Wu already collaborated in the "Triumph in the Skies" franchise; however, it is their first time in film. In the new movie "Men on the Dragon", [they] portray a couple, but it unfortunately ends in vain. In the end, Francis even graciously becomes Nancy's wedding witness.

Back then, Nancy was still a young girl in the series. Today, she is already a TV queen. Asking Francis his feeling about how different she is from back then, Francis highly praised Nancy for becoming beautiful: "People who have experience would become pretty and well worth a second look. Now is her golden time...the time to be able to enjoy the outcome. In the past, she would ask me what acting is and would also be scared that she would not get to film again after completing filming. However, she was very excited but did not have the kind of self-confidence that she has now". Francis laughingly said that self-confidence is a good thing, but do not go to the point of Francis Ng's overflowing self-confidence that is so detestable.

Regarding how it felt for Francis to go from a chok Sam Gor to an uncle, Francis already answered before waiting for Nancy to talk, mocking Sam Gor as also being an uncle, with the only difference being a cool uncle and a counterflowing uncle, claiming that he has been an uncle for 20 years but has never had a slip-up. Nancy said, "Francis has been this good at acting all along; there is only a change in his look!"

Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau), Ron Ng Cheuk Hei, Wan Kwong, William Hu (Wu Wai Hong) and others yesterday attended their new film JOI GEIN NUI YUN GAI (FAREWELL LADIES MARKET) production start worship ceremony at the Ladies' Market and drew a big crowd. Sum Yau who rarely went to the Ladies' Market only wore a tiny tank top. She admitted that she was not afraid of the crowd and the chaos, she even praised how cheerful the atmosphere was.

Some said that Sum Yau was responsible to sell sexiness. She said, "Is it very sexy? It's OK, it proves that I am improving." Sum Yau said that the new film will shoot on location at the Ladies' Market in its entirety, so she was not worried that the mix of crowds would become complicated. "This is my third time here. I think it's pretty cheerful and fun. In addition you can see people of many different nationalities." She said that in the film she played a transport worker so she would not need to wear a tank top. "I really like this character because she has very few lines. Although I play a transport worker, I won't be too rough and I won't need to curse." Sum Yau said that last year she made two television series, and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Goo Jai also held his own.

At the event, the film company arranged for "drug lords" Wa Jai and Goo Jai to arrived in a police vehicle, then began a drug sweep operation with brooms with other actors as they swept away the drugs on the floor. In the film they ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
