Two nights ago the film held a new spring group visit to thank the cast and the crew.

Cho Lam's wife Leanne Li Yanan also showed her support.

Recently busy with film promotion and audience appreciation, Cho Lam said that the promotional duties would go to Sister Mo because he would go on vacation with his wife to Japan for Valentine's Day and their wedding anniversary. The trip would take five days, then he would go to the Mainland for a Lantern Festival event. Speaking of his resigning from the new season of the Mainland variety program KEEP RUNNING, Cho Lam said that the official announcement has been made.

The Sean Lau Ching Wan, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Karena Lam Ka Yun, Carlos Chan Ka Lok starred Emperor Motion Picture INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK) as of 10 PM last night climbed to HK$ 22,879,749. Today Ching Wan, Ka Yun, Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi), Deep Ng Ho Hong, Anthony Ho Yuen Tung and director Alan Mak Su Fai visited several shows for audience appreciation events. Ka Yun even went to all five. Although Ka Fai was unable to attend he still supported everyone in spirit.

Chan Ka Lok was fortunate enough to play Best Actor Ching Wan's subordinate in the film and had many scenes with him. He felt very honored. Speaking of his first Lunar New Year film, he said, "In one scene we ICAC investigators went to arrest someone, director Mak Siu Fai arranged for us to stand behind Ching Wan in the elevator. He said that everyone could be seen in the shot bu didn't specify how we should play it. He hoped for us to experience the atmosphere before deciding what to do. Maybe everyone had pressure, everyone wanted to perform better to make themselves stand out. Some pretended to play with the phone, some propped up glasses and some breathed very rapidly. Ching Wan could not help but turned around and asked what we were doing, the director asked us why we made it like we were making a comedy!"

After finishing the scene everyone turned from relaxed to a serious and tense ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

In less than two weeks, Dior Cheng Yi Kin's ALONG WITH EKIN LIVE CONCERT will open at the Hong Kong Coliseum. As rehearsals heated up, his all new commercial for a financial company was unveiled yesterday. In the commercial, Ekin traveled through a graduation, an American football game and a studio with six generations of a family posing for a family portrait to examine the hot topic of "Living to 102" and how to properly plan for a long life. Ekin considered returning to school and joked that he would drag director Andrew Lau Wai Keung and music producer Chan Kwong Wing to become classmates to learn and cut class together!

If he had to drag a friend back to school with him, he would choose director Lau Wai Keung and his music producer Chan Kwong Wing among his industry friends. Ekin said, "If I have to choose two friends to go back to school with me, they might as well skip school with me. The first has to be Lau Wai Keung, haha, you can tell that he isn't a schoolboy! However he is very talented and became a very outstanding and very famous director. He didn't just rely on education, as he learned a lot from society. Chan Kwong Wing is not only my partner at work, we grew up together, improved ourselves together, he too learned from life experience.

Stephen Chow Sing Chi earlier promoted NEW KING OF COMEDY (SUN HEI KET JI WONG) in Guangzhou. At the event a viewer asked Sing Yeh whether he would make KUNG FU HUSTLE 2 (GONG FU 2)? He said, "Right! Actually it isn't really KUNG FU HUSTLE 2, it's only similar. It is a modern story that takes place overseas, but it is a little similar to the direction of KUNG FU HUSTLE."

Would he perform? Sing Yeh joked, "Can I? You think......" The audience roared with "You can" and some even loudly said, "You can even play an extra!" Sing Yeh replied in Cantonese, "That's right! I am an extra, and I am now a several decade old extra." Although the audience screamed that they would not mind, Sing Yeh said that he would mind. He even said that now he was "not as much a fighter".

A viewer joked that in the film he could be on the receiving end of the fight. He said, "Really! That actually can be considered. Let's go with that!"

Sing Yeh also mentioned that since retreating off screen to now, he constantly had offers to make movies. He had so many offers that the line could reach France, but he never agreed to perform. He said that it was unrelated to his high salary. He said, "I have no problem with how expensive it is because few things are what I want to do. I wouldn't do it unless it is something .....

This year because of her Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR she had to stay in Hong Kong and promote. Back then when Dada won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actress with VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET) she suddenly announced her retirement. She denied that she had relationship problems and said that back then she had a passing in her family, Meniere's disease made her dizzy constantly, and so much has happened that she could not accept everything at once. She chose to escape. Having been hurt in love Dada admitted that entering a new one would not be easy, so right now career would come first. Dada once suffered from ear ailment, so she wished for good health in the Year of the Pig. Career wise she would like to make more good characters. She would not mind being sexy but the role would also have to have potential. She admitted that for awhile she resisted being sexy again, but the more she limited herself, the more limited she was. With all the restrictions her performance was less than natural, she almost lost many performance opportunities. Later she thought it through and without any stress her performance was even more in control. "Pang Ho ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Koo Tin Lok yesterday attended a golden dragon lion Lunar New Year dance event in Causeway Bay's Times Square and dotted the eyes of the golden dragon and lion. The event also arranged for children to present a crown and a golden microphone, to signify his continuing reign in show business and continuing to sing good songs.

Goo Jai was asked if he would sing more in the Year of the Pig? He said, "I would sing more in private, I haven't planned to record any song. (Has it been twenty years since your last record release?) It has been over a decade, but I really have no interest. Right now I am busy with several movies." Goo Jai revealed that later he will fly to Myanmar and Spain for a month for one of the action films. Speaking of his old wounds, would he be able to handle the action scenes? He said, "I have been fighting for awhile, from December last year to now. I would even have to go to shoot a gun fight in a busy city and a helicopter scene." Goo Jai's neck had a bandage. He revealed that earlier after his neck bone surgery the doctor suggested for him to use scar removing bandages for half a year. Thus his new film would add a scene of him being shot.

Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin yesterday appeared at a cosmetic brand event. On the first work day after the Lunar New Year holiday, she took said that starting work on the Lunar 7th was the luckiest day. Yet two days before work, she already only ate vegetable to lose weight. Ah Sa also shared her beauty secrets. She felt that she did not need to dress too provocatively, showing too much would only make matter worse. The best would be expressing your own true nature.

The Ah Sa starred film THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI) was selected for film festivals in Osaka and Holland. She admitted that she was very happy but did not know whether she would be able to make time to attend. If she would be able to go to Osaka she definitely would pig out. The Hong Kong Film Awards would announce its nominations today. She felt that she would leave everything award related up to fate.
