The Teddy Robin Kwan directed film LUCID DREAMS (BAK BO BOON HEI LO OI LOK) consisted of 4 stories of joy, anger, sorrow and happiness. DaDa Chan Jing and Louis Cheung Kai Chung were responsible for the "happiness" segment, while Stephy Tang Lai Yun performed solo in "sorrow". Teddy Robin worked with DaDa and Stephy for the first time and praised how great their acting was. He said, "I thought Stephy was only a flower vase, but actually she isn't. She alone carried the sorrow segment and performed very well. DaDa already caught my eye when she made VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET), at the time her acting was already great; after this time I believe even more that she is a good actor. She was very in character and became the character. She has a lot of potential like Maggie (Cheung Man Yuk)." Teddy Robin said that the hardest to make was "happiness" because he mixed happiness with music. At first he thought after years of playing music it would not be hard for him, but when he had to include happiness it was another matter. He also revealed that this film was a salute to the late Italian director Fellini, who deeply influenced him.

DaDa in the film played a girlfriend for rent. She pretended to be a bride and had a fake wedding with Cheung Kai Chung. This was her first collaboration with Ah Chung and she ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

He joked, "Maybe he would let me get another wife, but each time I got fat again after losing weight. My wife thanked me for giving me the chance to be together a little longer. Now my grandsons know I am on a diet, when I ask them for chocolate they wouldn't give me any!" Big Brother Sammo said that this time he returned to acting for Lam Man Chung. He still wanted .....

Wong Cho Lam praised that each actor for their great performance this time. They were full of sincerity with song and dance galore, and definitely would be able to give everyone belly laughs. "Even Sister Mo sang, Fong Lik Sun even sang like he won the Best Male Singer. The film has 60 actors, as (Joey) Yung Cho Yi and (Sammi) Cheng Sau Man also guest starred. Sammi even dropped her idol baggage to play a housewife, it truly was quite a breakthrough!" Cho Lam said that editing has already begun. Despite numerous actors the film was not hard to edit.

Film "Flying Tiger II: The Four Constables"? Ron Ng Tells Raymond Lam to Cameo as a Street Sweeper

Thursday October 18, 2018 Hong Kong

Ron Ng attended a beauty brand event. Earlier, the picture of 'The Young Four Constables', him, Kenneth Ma, Raymond Lam, and Sammul Chan, together after ten years became the focus of the whole city. Some netizens said that their faces have changed a lot compared to the past. Does Ron think so? "I think that everyone's face is about the same. Because we are always able to see one another, any change may be seen by those who do not always see us. At least I recognize that he is Sammul! Would not say, 'Hey? Are you Kenneth?' Would not be like this!"

Netizens were eager to express that they would like to see them collaborate again. Ron expressed that he has a plan, as he is able to discuss with the director to arrange for them to cameo in "Flying Tiger II", which stars him and Kenneth: "Sammul can cameo as a passerby. Raymond can be a street sweeper. Just missing the two of them! If Sammul and Rayond have time, see if they are free or not. Cameo as a restaurant waiter or a convenience store cashier...I think that would also be quite good!"

Ron expressed that there was a small regret in being unable to reunite with artistes from the same period, such as Bosco Wong, Michelle Ye, Nancy Wu, et al., that day.

Regarding TVB experiencing a wave of layoffs recently, Kenneth expressed, "A bit unfortunate, but this is a high-level decision. We also cannot say anything. Hope that it does not happen again.

There is a lot of demand out there; many productions need talent".

Regarding "Flying Tiger II" officially filming, Kenneth revealed that he will be portraying a police officer in the Criminal Intelligence Bureau.

Artistes Louis Koo and Jessica Hsuan both attended an event. When it was mentioned that the 21st is Louis' birthday, he revealed that, on the day of his birthday, he would definitely be having dinner and cutting cake to celebrate with his family at home, and he laughingly said, "Would cut cake every year, and then take an expressionless family photo...has been like this since being handheld when I was young to now. Would automatically be expressionless once we take our positions". After saying this, he immediately laughed himself to tears. He continued, "My mom would cook the foods that I like every year. Want it to be auspicious for birthdays, so [she] would make black moss and dried oysters and poached chicken. (New Year's dishes?) Yes. Would celebrate it like New Year's. Isn't it funny? (What birthday wishes do you have?) Must be in good health in order to sit together and take an expressionless photo. Got used to it after taking it for so many years...have been taking it since using film to now. Did put the photos in a photo album...some even turned yellow. (Passing it down from generation to generation?) Like the Addams family".

Had Hot Pot Alone

Louis expressed that he would be celebrating with his friends before and after his birthday, but Jessica expressed that she would not be in Hong Kong during that time, so she would not be able to celebrate his birthday with him: "I am going on a vacation. It's like that when you are so late in asking". She said that she gave Louis a gift last year, and even asked Louis if he remembered. Louis laughingly said, "If I had to remember everyone's gift, wouldn't I be very busy? ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
