The Francis Ng Chun Yu starred film MEN ON THE DRAGON (YIK LAU DAI SHOOK) is a big hit. Earlier he appeared on Radio One Hong Kong and shared his film experience as well as his relationship with his father and son.

Also the executive producer of the film, Chun Yu brought up the reason for the Chinese title change. "The title originally was to be MAN SHUI CHIN SHAN JUNG WAN to coordinate with the dragon boat drum sound. However CASH (Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong) wanted over HK$ 100,000 in royalty. You can do alot with HK$ 100,000. Under the circumstance we can only change the name." Chun Yu admitted that he really liked his character Ah Lung. "He has quite a MK feel. Because I grew up in Mongkok, I once was a street vendor next to the Nelson Street MTR station. The most memorable was that feeling of not making enough to last the night." Because he was once on the same path, in comparison to playing a pilot Chun Yu liked playing a Mongkok person even more. "The frst time I put on that pilot uniform, the performance of looking chok was very enmbarassing. That was the hardest character for me to master." Actually "Sam Gor"'s matinee idol hairstyle was Chun Yu's suggestion, which the audience deeply accepted.

Over his 37 years in the business, Chun Yu experienced a lot of setbacks. When he first got into ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Alex Man Chi Leung two nighs ago worked on their film I'M LIVING IT (MAK LO YUN) in Tai Kok Tsui. A suspected drunk man caused trouble, the crew tried to intervene but in the end had to contact the police for help. When the police arrived to ask the man to leave, he got emotional. Later the police subsided him and sent him to the hospital to be examined. In the process one officer was injured and also had to be sent to the hospital for treatment.

Yeung Chin Wa said that at the time she was preparing in the make up room and held the disturbance, but because of how far away she was she did not see what happened. The crew also told them to wait at the make up room and would call them for the shoot. She said that film productions would often run into similar situations and the crew had experience in handling such matter.

Kwok Fu Sing's manager Siu Mei said that at the time Sing Sing and Chin Wa were in the make up room at the end of the street. The crew took great care of the incident and did not permit them to get near it. She and the director saw the man rambling and deliberately loitering to hinder the shoot. He even ignored the police and acted up even more instead. In the end they left the incident for the police to handle.

The Raymond Wong Pak Ming produced, David Lam Tak Luk directed, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Julian Cheung Chilam, Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Patrick Tam Yiu Man, Michael Tse Tin Wa, Stephy Tang Lai Yan, Adam Pak Tin Nam starred L STORM (L FUNG BO) earlier opened with a very ideal box office performance. It opened with HK$ 1 million to be the box office champion. As of two days ago its total box office was HK$ 7,877,924 so far.

The Anti Corruption Storm series reached its third film and added to its cast and story. Its action was even better than before. The large scale gun fight unprecedented. Chilam said, "After so many crime films I have never worked on such a large scale road block, two blocks were closed off for explosions and car flips with almost 100 extras and a multiple day shoot." The team for this gun fight scene used several thousand bullets. In particular when Chilam forced the money laundering organization mastermind Tam Yiu Man into a corner, he used a heavy machine gun and sparks flew all over. He jumped on top of a car and convincingly played the armed robber role perfectly.

For realism, the gun fight's reaction bullets were placed very close to the actors. They almost blew up right next to them. Tam Yiu Man twice got spark into his eyes and needed saltine to wash his eyes. He said, "Sparks came from different angles and were unavoidable. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film MEN ON THE DRAGON (YIK LAU DAI SHOOK) grew stronger in momentum as it broke HK$ 10 millon at the box office. Two nights ago it held a celebration. Francis Ng Chun Yu, Nancy Wu Ting Yan, Tony Wu Tsz Tung, Jacquelin Chong Sze Man and director Sunny Chan Wing Sun attended. Each held a special edition moon cake to celebrate in hopes of the film to keep its run until the Mid Autumn Festival.

Ng Chun Yu admitted although this time the film did not open to a HK$ 10 million box office, but with word of mouth it grew stronger and stronger and thus he still felt pleased. Earlier he stated that if the box office would pass HK$ 10 million he would show off his muscles. He immediately said that Poon Chan Leung was the one who agreed. He of course would wait until the end. For how much would he be willing to? He said, "It's not a money issue. Later it may go to HK$ 12 or 15 million, I would cover the end. I am working out right now, I will show what I will get. However Poon Chan Leung said that he would show one piece (of muscles). He really is irresponsible."

How would Ting Yan show her support? She said, "I normally work ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film THE WHITE STORM 2 DRUG LORDS (SO DUK 2 TIN DEI DUI KUET) last night held a production wrap banquet. Producer and star Andy Lau Tak Wa, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Michael Miu Kiu Wai, Karena Lam Ka Yun and Kent Cheng Juk Si attended. Lau Tak Wa earlier decided to cancel public concert ticket sales and only sell tickets online. Wa Jai said that unusual time requires unusual measures. He hoped that in the future singers and organizers would come up with new ideas.

Ka Yun already played a couple with Wa Jai in their first collaboration. She joked, "It was a dream come true for me, I was just afraid that he wouldn't want me." Wa Jai answered, "I wasn't in charge before, now as a producer I am!" Ka Yun even said that she did not wear a wedding gown for her own wedding.

The film HOTEL SOUL GOOD (NUI WONG CHONG DOH CHING) two nights ago held a banquet. Actors Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Maggie Siu Mei Kei, Louis Cheung Kai Chung and ToNick attended. Ah Chung said that the film was made around a year ago, a dark comedy in which he and Chau Sau Na played happy rivals. She could see ghosts and he would often be possessed by three ghosts Eric Kot Man Fai, Richard Ng Yiu Hon and Siu Mei Kei. Thus he had to imitate their movement. Each actor has his or her uniqueness that could be easily grasped, but required observations of their behavior.

Was playing a woman the hardest for Ah Chung? He said that fortunately he has worked with Maggie on television and spent five or six months together. He was rather familiar with her gestures. "Maggie is as pretty as a fairy, I would do my best to imitate her as I don't want to make her look ugly!" Ah Chung praised Maggie for being good looking and a good actor. When she started he already took notice and watched her grow. "When I was a little I would skip my homework to watch her series. Of course I thought she was very hot. She is just as hot now. I am very happy to be able to work with her!"

Maggie felt embarrassed from Ah Chung's praise. "I don't know what to say. Today he is ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Eric Tsang Chi Wai produced, Chin Ka Lok directed action film THE GOLDEN JOB (WONG GUM HING DAI) invited "YOUNG AND DANGEROUS" Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Jordan Chan Siu Chun, Michael Tse Tin Wa and Jerry Lamb Hiu Fung to "reunite". Tin Wa, Ka Lok and Lam Hiu Fung's stills yesterday were released for the first time. As "intelligence agent" Bill, Tin Wa continued to look explosively chok as a superficial person who was only after a materialistic life and valued food and fun. Thus he did not mind taking a short cut to make a quick buck. In the end he made a mistake and sold out his brothers, leading to a break up; the Ka Lok played "driver" was calm. Not only did he excel in driving and upgrading vehicles, he was able to remain calm in danger. He was the "mediator" between the brothers; as the "hacker" Mouse, Lam Hiu Fung looked no different from the average "otaku" but actually is the a top notch computer expert. Because he was the youngest and easy going, he became the target of his brothers' ridicule.

Ron Ng Cheuk Hei and Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau) two nights ago attended the film JOI GEIN NUI YUN GAI (SEE YOU LADIES' MARKET) production wrap banquet. Sum Yau brought out a cake to celebrate Ng Cheuk Hei's September 9th birthday in advance. He would celebrate with dinner with family on the actual day.

Sum Yau during the shoot had a skin reaction from the make up and non stop perspiration. The medicine made her face swell up a little. She said, "The film has many night scenes, staying up is bad for the skin and the body. I am used to getting up and going to bed early, but when I get off work it's time to get up." Ng Cheuk Hei did not mind working nights because he was used to it from working on TVB series. He joked that the word "sleep" had nothing to do with him, the worst was when he went 7 days without sleep. When he got home he showered then went back to work. "At the time I was just a shell without a soul, I was so tired that I couldn't even remember my lines. In 4 or 5AM I had a scene with Brother Chung (Damien Lau Chung Yun), by the third take I couldn't say a word. The director couldn't take it anymore and told me to go home. On the way home at 50 miles per hour I still scrapped the divider." Sum Yau ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
