The film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) already opened on May 31st. Viewers who saw it right away reflected that they wanted more. The 95 minute long film went straight through as each frame of film was director Benny Lau Wai Heng's blood, swear and tears. "For the pace to be even faster and more intense, I was forced to cut some scenes that I deeply loved. Here I strongly ask for the DVD to collect these valuable scenes anew as Easter eggs for fans." The first removed scene to be shown as a rare "action scene" in the film -- when Daichi Harashima and his father Jackie Lui Chung Yin went at it. Director Lau recalled, "Both actors were very serious, Daichi took five slaps from Lui Chung Yin!"

Daichi Harashima admitted that this father and son fight scene was an extremely difficult challenge. "I not only had to keep an eye on the action and expressions, bu also the lines. Luckily Lui Chung Yin was very accommodating to me and taught me how to take the marks and deliver the lines; everyone contributed to the film. If we fake fought it wouldn't have that feeling. I remember 5 or 6 bad takes, from the numerous lines as well as me being too nervous. I originally pushed Papa away only after he slapped me, I already pushed him away before he even hit me!" Although Lui Chung Yin already held back, Daichi was still hurting from being slapped. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Gregory Wong Chung Hiu two nights ago attended a hmvod drama summer 2018 launch party. Speaking of film prop master Cheung Wai Chuen being found guilty of improper handling of prop currency, Wong Chung Hiu posted a full blast on social media. Two nights ago he brought it up again. "Hong Kong film is between a rock and a hard place, when prop currency is too real we get yelled at, when it is poorly made, computer graphics are too fake we get yelled at! (Would you feel that the government doesn't support the film industry?) It's not important that it doesn't help, if it doesn't bring us trouble it's already great. The entire world support their own films. Hong Kong film has international quality and is recognized, it should be supported."

Yesterday Jackie Chan on social media announced the release of his new song YOUTH STORY (CHING CHUN GOO SI) and shared many old photos. He even posted a rare early photo with Joan Lin. Others included his parents' black and white photos, photos from his Seven Little Fortunes and Jackie Chan Stuntman Association days. Jackie Chan posted, "These people have kept me company and spent my youth with me. Today, I dug these old childhood photos; each one is a unforgettable memory, a story of youth. Now it's your turn to tell me, after hearing my song who would you think of? Which of your youth story would you be reminded of?"

YOUTH STORY is a song that Jackie Chan dedicated to the Jackie Chan Stunt Team's 40th anniversary, its goal to sing the praises of his relationship with his stunt team. This time even his wife Joan Lin participated in its creation. After the song was completed Jackie Chan even sang it acapella for Joan Lin and made her cry.

Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) two nights ago attended her film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET)'s star premiere and charity screening. She said that her mother got teary eyed from watching. The film reminded her of a lot of school memories. She said that in elementary school she had a crush on a guy for a long time. On the final opportunity before she was promoted to secondary school, her older sister taught her to write a letter to make her feelings known. However a girl could not be too direct. Thus she used the lyrics of ACTUALLY AM I IN YOUR HEART. The guy had zero response after reading the letter, which upset here for several months. In secondary school even when she ran into someone she liked she did not dare to express her feeling.

Once a male classmate sang to Tong Yi but she had no feeling. In addition she was too shy so she turned him down. She revealed that at the time she often watched the guy she liked at his basketball games. On a date when she heard him say that this was one of the happiest night of his life, she was both afraid and resistant.

The Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) starred film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) two nights ago held its premiere. Director Benny Lau Wai Heng, actors Aimee Chan Yan Mei, Hedwig Tam Sin Yin, Donny Summer (Ha Siu Sing) attended. Lead actor Daichi Harashima had to return to school in Japan and was unable to attend, but he sent a video to wish a good performance for the film. Aimee appeared with her husband Moses Chan Ho. They admitted that it was a rare chance to be able to leave their children, but Chan Ho said that when they left their son chased them and asked, "Where are you going?"

First time lead actress Tong Yi said that she has already seen the film four times, each time she was moved to tears. Thus she already brought a lot of tissue with her. The night before she did not dare to watch it again to avoid appearing with eyes swollen. As for the box office, Tong Yi was no worried about the box office pressure. She would .....

Dayo Wong Tze Wah recently shut down to prepare for his final stand up comedy show in July. Reportedly this time he made HK$ 100 million, enough to retire. "God Tze Wah" denied that. He said that he did not have the guts to imagine and stressed that he never confirmed "retirement", only "putting away the mic".

Tze Wah two nights ago deliberately "came down the mountain" to support his friend's film premiere. Aside from cast members Fish Liew Chi Yu, Lo Chun Yip, other industry insider supporters included Irene Wan Bik Ha and Cheung Tat Ming. Tze Wah said, "My first few films were (Derek) Chiu Sung Kei directed, he was the first director in my life. Originally during this period I wouldn't see anyone, but I deliberately came to show my support. When he asked me he didn't make much, this time I am not in it it should be a big hit, haha."

Tze Wah revealed that his stand up comedy would involve sensitive subjects. He said, "My show is sensitive every time, it would be sensitive in a variety of areas, like conceptually or various ways. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

"Yu Fa" Lee Kin Yan and "Sugar Cone Fai" Cheng Man Fai's new film WONG GOK LO PAU CHONG DONG BUK (MONGKOK OLD GUNS IN THE NORTHEAST) two nights ago held a charity premiere. Lee Kin Yan said that in the film he would have a family scene that he has never played in his career before. "I have been working in the Mainland for 15 years and made many different films. Some have already departed from cross dressing, I have even played an emperor and a hero. This time I would dress as a woman still, I would be abused then I would rise." He said that the film had a Hong Kong and Northeast crossover element, with the Northeast dialect and "HK Putonghua" it would be pretty funny. "I originally didn't know how to speak Putonghua, while working in the Mainland I learned slowly. Now others understand what I am saying; instead Sugar Cone Fai's Putonghua, no one understands too well. Luckily his body language is decent." Also a writer, Cheng Man Fai revealed that he gave his on screen first kiss to Mainland actress Xi Meili. It was her first time too. Lee Kin Yam was envious. "He told me sorry, next time he would arrange it for me."

Speaking of Stephen Chow Sing Chi's current MERMAID 2 production, would they take part? Lee Kin Yan said that he was busy with a series in Hengdian then a detective film with Cheng ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Julian Cheung Chi Lam and Myolie Wu Hung Yi yesterday worked on a marriage proposal scene for their film DEATH NOTIFY (SEI MONG TUNG JI DAN UM HAK JEH: SAU BO KUK SEUNG HUNG WUI). They recalled their own actual proposals. Chilam said that men's knees were golden and when he proposed to his wife Anita Yuen Wing Yi he did not kneel; Hung Yi regretted that when her husband proposed, she told him to get up too soon since it was only once in a lifetime. Chilam chimed in, "As long as no one messes up!" Chilam also said that when he proposed he also gave a pair of earrings, but now he felt dumb because so far he still has not seen his wife with them on.

Cheung Chi Lam and Wu Hung Yi during a photo opportunity played their proposal scene again, but Chilam refused to kneel. He was obviously clueless about which finger the ring would go. Although it was just a film shoot, Hung Yi's diamond ring was eye catching. Chilam boasted, "I am very sincere, the diamond ring is legit -- over 2 karats big. (Did boss Stephen Shiu Jr. loan it from his personal stash?) Product placement, the sponsor provided it. After the shoot it might be given to Hung Yi." Hung Yi chimed in, "I would like it to be."
