Janet Chow Ka Wai's ViuTV food program invited her father in law Sammo Hung Kam Bo as a guest. Her co-host Lau Wing Kin invited his father Lau Ka Wing to the taping. Today is Hung Kam Bo's 67th birthday, Ka Wai prepared a cake and gave the birthday song to celebrate with her father in law. Hung Kam Bo happily said, "I am happy everyday, not just only birthdays, Happy Everyday!" Today he would probably celebrate with his family. Lau Ka Wing jokingly asked for an invitation, and Hung Kam Bo replied in jest that he should give me lai see first.

Hung Kam Bo and Lau Ka Wing have known each other since they were little. Hung Kam Bo revealed that when he was little Lau Ka Wing often picked on him. Lau Ka Wing admitted, "He was just a few years old when he started, if I didn't pick on him, should I have picked on someone several decades old?" Hung continued, "In terms of fighting I am no match for him. He could knock down someone in several dozen seconds." Lau Ka Wing humbly said, "That's just promotion, don't believe that."

Speaking of movies, Hung Kam Bo said, "If I have he chance I want to work with old actors like (Karl) Maka, (Richard) Ng Yiu Hon, and Ka Wing. (Five Lucky Stars?) Old Lucky stars, I can make Hong Kong films but let's see if today I hit the lottery." Hung Kam ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The first film, television and music grand slam artist Goo Jai said that he was very happy, but because he was busy with work he had no time to celebrate. Earlier photos of cake cutting were last minute arrangements at a Performing Artist Guild meeting. As for singing again at the award show, Goo Jai was asked whether he would return to music this year. He said that movies would come first. As for his next goal, he joked that he wanted to participate in a 13 event iron man race. Joey Yung Cho Yee stated that she wanted to write a new song for Goo Jai and market him strongly as a dance singer, Goo Jai turned it down that he wanted to make movies first. As for the suspected foul language due to the excitement at the award show, Goo Jai said no comment. His co-star Ng Chun Yu said that Goo Jai and Cheung Ka Fai competed for the music rookie award back then. Goo Jai reacted, "No way, I really don't remember."

The Yuen Woo Ping (Lord Eight) directed, Raymond Wong Pak Ming and Donnie Yen Chi Tan produced, Max Zhang Jin, Dave Bautista, Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King), Tony Jaa, Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Shi Yanneng, Patrick Tam Yiu Man starred kung fu epic MASTER Z: THE IP MAN LEGACY (IP MAN OI JUEN: CHEUNG TIN CHI) in the past Christmas slot did not fear the onslaught from various foreign films. So far the film almost reached HK$ 13 million and eighth in the 2018 highest grossing Hong Kong film. The film is still in release.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and AVENGERS' Hollywood action superstar Dave used to be a professional wrestler. With his size he was a heavyweight opponent. In the film he and Shi Yanneng fought a life and death duel. Shi Yanneng once revealed that he had a disc dislocation after an accident during the fight. Aside from this scene, Dave also had a fight in a restaurant with Zhang Jin.

Lord Eight got Dave, who was obviously taller, bigger and stronger than Zhang Jin, and designed power punches against the even more agile wing chun moves that avoided hard contact; yet to be reasonable, he even asked Dave to lift up Zhang Jin and toss him. Zhang Jin said, "During the fight, I felt like I hit him with ten punches but he could knock me out with just one punch! During the shoot we would have safety precautions, but to really get picked up, tossed toward ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Koo Wins 'My Favourite Male Singer', Sings "Boyfriend"

Saturday January 5, 2019 Hong Kong

Credits: to hyn5 @ http://hyn5-hyn5.blogspot.com


When presenting 'My Favourite Male Singer', Jan Lamb announced that it was Louis Koo! Louis walked out from the side of the stage; everyone screamed, and all the singers stood up! Louis laughingly said on stage, "I really like to sing but don't know how to sing. Very odd. A miracle appeared. Walking up to this stage and winning this award, really have nothing to say". He continued, "Thank you to the people who voted. You guys do not have to stand up...as though I am winning a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'. 'My Favourite' is not attained overnight. What everyone likes the most is not my song. Last year, I became the president of the [Hong Kong] Performing Artistes Guild. The first responsibility was wanting to help the music industry and using the rest of [my] time to eat with singers and understand the music industry's changes and difficulties. However, their fire has never been put out. I am very happy. As a newcomer, must remember that dreams, every day and every moment, should not be forgotten. Whether you succeed or not, have to lose out as a person. Remember that trying is already the half of success".

Afterward, he laughingly said that he and Jan had to bring up the atmosphere. Jan told him to sing; Louis said that he would sing, and then later told Joey Yung, Kay Tse, Hins Cheung, and Juno Mak to come up to the stage. They told him to sing 《今期流行》, but he said that would be singing a gentler song, and then [he] started the key to sing 《男朋友》; everyone cheered.

Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Wong Jing, and Philip Ng Won Lung two nights ago worked on their film ENTER THE FAT DRAGON (FEI LUNG GOR GONG) in an alley in Kowloon Bay. Chi Tan said that the film took a year to make because changes were made as the shoot went on. This day was already the final night. In two scenes he would have to mess with himself as he performed classic scenes from FLASHPOINT and SPL, with the same costume, same staff and at the same back alley as he did 15 years ago for SPL.

Yen Chi Tan joked, "The costume is still a little loose now because my chest wasn't so firm before. Instead my belly got a little fatter, but it's healthy fat." Chi Tan pointed out that ENTER THE FAT DRAGON was not entirely a comedy. He said that he would not be absurd, which he would leave for Wong Jing. This was his third collaboration with Wong Jing. They worked at different posts so the collaboration has been very pleasant. As for the chubby costume in the film, he said, "It's a very handsome chubby. Actually years ago I did a commercial with this chubby look. At the time a friend already suggested for me to transition it into a film character. (Does your wife like your chubby look?) .....

The Pang Ho Cheung directed, Gigi Leung Wing Kei, DaDa Chan Jing, Isabel Chan Yat Ning, Lam Suet, Patrick Tse Yin, Jo Kuk Cho Lam and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa starred Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR (GUNG HEI BAK POR) yesterday released its official trailer. The trailer began with Lam Suet, who "greeted" Yeung Chin Wa and told Chin Wa to "speak English". She was stunned. Chin Wa said that the appearance in the trailer absolutely was not acting because it was a real reaction. "Brother Suet was loud and the set was very quiet. As soon as he turned around he loudly dropped the bomb. I really was stunned from fright. I had to wait for awhile before I remembered to deliver my lines."

DaDa's low cut leap also caught a lot of eyeballs. DaDa said, "The scene actually required wires. Since it was my first time I really was a little nervous. Instead I was the most afraid of wardrobe malfunction. I took all the precautions before appearing on the set." DaDa's niece Little Mantou also performed. DaDa also praised her niece's great performance. In addition, Pang Ho Cheung's movies have always been very "domestic". Aside from adding topical figure "Yam Ho Yan", he also invited internet artist Yanki Din ("Sister Turkey" Ting Ho yan) and Manner's Hou Dee to join the fray.

Dior Cheng Yi Kin and Gigi Ma Lai Ka Yi (Lai Chi) earlier appeared on a radio interview. They both agreed that they did not change much, bu they were much more mature than before. Gigi said that their personalities used to be similar, unable to express themselves or handle matter. They hid a lot inside. She felt that Ekin looked aloof but was very hard working inside. Perhaps since they were both Libras they were more reserved and quiet. Ekin said, "She and Ah Yo (Yoyo Mung Ka Wai) are very close!" Now they both have their own happy families. Gigi felt that happiness actually was very simple, as long as you knew how to be grateful and easy to please the gates of happiness would open for you! "Life has ups and downs, with success and failure, even you are down you have to be grateful, treat setbacks like life training." Ekin agreed, as he felt life should not be too complicated.

The classic film YOUNG AND DANGEROUS (GOO WAT JAI) brought Ekin and Gigi together. Ekin actually remembered Gigi's drinking song WHITE SHIRT the most. He even sang it to Gigi, who was in a white shirt and made Gigi crack up. Ekin said that his deepest impression of her was WHITE SHIRT, as people still remembered this song today. They also recalled the YOUNG AND DANGEROUS era. Gigi said that she used to be a singer, but her costumes in the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Returning to small character comedy after 20 years, the Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed NEW KING OF COMEDY will continue KING OF COMEDY's inspirational spirit as it will fully display the inspirational story of regular people chasing dreams.

Yesterday morning, the film released a funny hand drawn nine frame cartoon poster. On it various characters widened their eyes and opened their mouth to ask a question, "Who will be the new king of comedy?" That night, NEW KING OF COMEDY's first trailer was finally released. The trailer opened with the same question, then various small characters appeared. Through various exaggerated and funny performance they "competed" for this "career with a future". Each inspirational line made people laugh while at the same time igniting the fire inside. "Extras are actors too."

"You have to believe you are the best, not second or third, you are number one!"

"The trailer is all small characters, this is very Chow Sing Chi!" Instead, each small character in the trailer was like the Chow Sing Chi played Wan Tin Sau 20 years ago. They were neglected, overestimated, oppressed, but they still persisted in chasing their dreams. Even when dirtied and disheveled, they still persisted with their dreams and believed that they were the best. This was the spirit that everyone would need in 2019, and the best embodiment of the words "hard work and struggle".
