Several Mainland actors had nothing but praise for director Lau Wai Keung's work ethics, stating that the director spared them from danger and more than took care of them. With all the coaxing, Director Lau was all smiles. Zhou Dongyu first said, "Director is too nice! Many scenes didn't need multiple shoots, he got what he wanted in one shot. He would even let you get off work early to go drinking." Chen Xuedong followed with exaggeration, "That's right, I started work at 7 and by 7:30 I am off work! Because Director's lighting is too accurate, before I took my mark Director already spent three days on lighting. He saved all the tough stuff for him so the actors could relax a little!" Everyone said that this was a team with a lot of love, so no one wanted to get off work. However the director would always attentively let them finish the most jobs in the shortest time, so everyone could get off work as soon as possible. They all inevitably had gratitude for the director inside, during the shoot they wanted to take advantage of their time and do their best. The entire team's atmosphere then was great.

Ka Ling later will attend the Golden Horse Awards. As for work she would in negotiation for two Mainland commercials and co-production films. Her own company was looking for screen writers to write scripts. When would she release her husband Leung Chiu Wai for a movie? Ka Ling said, "He is the one who is unwilling. I turned down 10 scripts for him. Some were unsuitable, and he didn't want to make some. Being his manager actually isn't easy. He would have words for you. When you ask him to attend an event, he would say that he would only stay for half a hour!"
Was he a very "naughty" artist? Ka Ling agreed, "Terrible!" Was taking care of him like Mission Impossible? She nodded, "Right! I have to hurry and find someone to avoid blurring my identity!" She could take a commission. Ka Ling said, "Then I ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Stephy Tang Lai Yan, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, DaDa Chan Jing, Susan Shaw Yam Yam and director Teddy Robin Kwan two nights ago attended the LUCID DREAMS (BAK BO BOON HEI LO OI LOK) premiere. Stephy in the film had a back revealing scene. She said, "The director thought my back was pretty so he added this scene on the spot. Because I trusted the director I agreed without hesitation. This scene is even more able to coordinate with the story's horror atmosphere. During the shoot I asked for the set to be cleared. For now this is going to be my sexiest."
Stephy during the shoot has not begun dating Prince Chiu. He did not find out until he saw the stills. She sad, "Maybe it is his bottom line too, but after he saw the stills he had no response. No response represents good response, at least he wouldn't object. Actually I show my back in what I normally wear too." For such scenes, Stephy said that she would not deliberately ask her boyfriend first. "Everyone in this business would understand, we respect each other. We have no need to explain too clearly. If my boyfriend is making an intimate scene, I wouldn't be jealous either. I don't want to be limited, so I wouldn't limit him. However I may choose not to watch."

We are very simple, we just want to have a meal and a little fun, for a little get together. We aren't afraid of too many celebrations. Everyone has given a lot of effort to this film.

Eric Tsang Chi Wai yesterday attended an organ donation event yesterday. He said that he just returned from scouting location in Shanghai for a film that he would produce and heard that the Mainland had many productions that was in an observation stage because the Mainland released many new policies. However he felt that the bosses' confidence would not be affected. "The Mainland market is large. Even PROJECT GUTENBERG (MO SEUNG) made 1 billion. It's OK, as long as you know how the new policies would go. The most important is passing the grade and not making a misstep." Would many restriction on productions become pressure on creativity? He said, "When you need the Mainland market you have to be this way. If you want to be a little freer, you can make Hong Kong film." Reportedly the Mainland new policies halted many productions. Chi Wai said, "Take a look at Hengdian and you would know, normally 50 or 60 movies are being made, now only 8 to 10 are." As for whether that was due to productions waiting for inspection, Chi Wai said that mainly they had to handle tax problems.

The Teddy Robin Kwan directed, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, DaDa Chan Jing, Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Stephy Tang Lai Yan starred LUCID DREAMS (BAK BO BOON HEI LO OI LOK) will officially open on October 25th. The film consists of four stories about joy, anger, sorrow and happiness. JOY: WEDDING BANUQET stars Cheung Kai Chung, Chan Jing, Maria Cordero and Susan Shaw Yam Yam; ANGER: BUILDING stars Cheng Ka Wing and Xia Yan; SORROW: HAUNTED HOME stars Stephy and HAPPINESS: EAST CITY stars Andrew Lam Man Chung and Cecilia So Lai Shan. Aside from suspense, horror, action and comedy elements, the director also added some Hong Kong urban legends into the film to make this domestic fantasy film even more Hong Kong! Director Teddy Robin's creative idea came from the dull and stressful Hong Kong life and negligence of the emotions inside just to make a living. He hoped through this film the audience would be able to pick up the joy, anger, sorrow and happiness that should be in life.
Playing a sentimental and fragile children illustration artist, Stephy in SORROW: HAUNTED HOUSE segment moved to an ancestral home to live alone temporarily after a relationship change with her husband. She did not expect all the strange events at the house. In order to strengthen the film's horror and suspense atmosphere, director Teddy Robin daringly asked Stephy to appear topless and gave her first bare back performance. The director said, "When human is at its most naked, without even the sense of security from clothing, the condition would be the most horrifying." Stephy agreed with the statement and thus she agreed right away when the director asked on ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
