Chilam said, "This is a great reason, this time I learned something."

Cheung Chi Lam revealed that in the film he played a deranged killer. In the film he even daringly challenged gory scenes like dismembering a corpse and, thus the space for imagination was enormous and he gained more epxerience. "Before the shoot I though a lot about life and death. I realized that at the final moment of life, I would miss each family member the most. After the shoot I cherished the life in the real world even more." However in real life Chilam was an optimistic person and never even thought about suicide.

They will announce it when it is finalised and I would like to give my apology to my fans although it is unrelated to me. (Rumours about you getting some singer award?) That serious?

I will definitely attend the awards ceremony."
