Nicholas Tse Ting and Brightway chair and Emperor Group executive director Alex Yeung Ching Lung yesterday attended the Hong Kong International Entrepreneurs Festival launch ceremony and forum.

Speaking of earlier when he, Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho), Stephen Fung Tak Lun and Sam Lee Chan Sam were guest presenters at the Hong Kong Film Award as the cast of GEN X COPS (DUT GAING SUN YUN LUI), he said that when he made the film he was 19 and joked that now he already became old human. It was very rare to have a group of friends with the same interests, and he hoped to be able to work together again 20 years later. He also revealed that Benny Chan Muk Sing after RAGING FIRE (NO FOR) will begin to work on this film. Would they reduce their salaries? He joked, "Don't bring up this subject." He also said that after the event he would get his hair cut to begin work on the Chan Muk Sing directed film RAGING FIRE. As for his father Patrick Tse Yin's Lifetime Achievement Awards, he said that he was happy for his father. He would not cook a special dinner to celebrate, but he would cook a meal for him.

The Chief Executive yesterday announced new Mainland policy that would loosen restrictions on Hong Kong films, hinting that Hong Kong filmmakers would have even more creative space and freedom. Aaron Kwok Fu Sing praised the move for being able to provide Hong Kong films with more opportunities to be enjoyed in the Mainland. It would also help the Hong Kong film industry even more. "I wish Hong Kong film colleagues will remain united and work hard, not only to enable Hong Kong films to be seen in the Mainland but in the entire world!"

Recently working in the Mainland, Pierre Ngo Ka Nin felt that the policy woud not be better. Because in the past Hong Kong film actors and crew members did not have many choices when working in the Mainland. Aside from feature characters, they could not participate in third or fourth tier characters. Finding opportunity in the Mainland was difficult unless the identity card was turned into a Mainland one. Thus he was very happy to hear this news. As for the ability to participate in Mainland film awards like the Golden Rooster Hundred Flower Awards, Ka Nin said that this was an encouragement for Hong Kong filmmakers. Because for now only film restriction policy would be changtes, Ka Nin hoped that in the future Central would loosen television series policy as well so more Hong Kong actors and behind the scene workers would benefit.

Actor Ron Ng Cheuk Hei revealed that this move would be good for all actors. Cheuk Hei said, "When a film or a television series ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Koo Tin Lok, Raymond Lam Fung, Chrissie Chau Sau Na and others starred in the film P STORM (P FUNG BO), which after ten days in release became a hit in the Mainland and Hong Kong. At the Mainland box office it made 600 million yuan RMB, and at the Hong Kong box office it already made HK$ 12 million. Yesterday boss and producer Raymond Wong Pak Ming held a celebration luncheon. Goo Jai revealed that he did not ask for bonuses when he made movies and did not need any, as he only wanted to improve the Hong Kong film market. Lam Fung's debut as a villain had great audience response, which he said made him feel a little better.

The P STORM box office performance greatly surprised Lam Fung because he has not made a movie in awhile. Goo Jai also opened up a new role for him as he played a villain for the first time, which also was the fruit of everyone's labor. Did he have a shot of confidence? Lam Fung said, "I am a little more comfortable." He also said that in BACK TO THE PAST he would have a lot of action scenes, which would be weight loss exercises for him.

Lately Hubert Wu Hung Kwan was rumored to have become arrogant and claim to sing better than Lam Fung, which led to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Teresa Mo Shun Kwan yesterday attended a Heep Hong Society's Great Chefs event press conference and brought public attention to special need children. Sister Mo even decorated cakes with children.

Sister Mo two nights ago attended the Hong Kong Film Award and online comments claimed that she was ten years young and looked like Nancy Wu Ting Yan. Sister Mo happily said, "If I looked like Wu Ting Yan then I would be younger more than just ten years. I have to thank the make up artist and the hairstylist, and the clothing, it was a team effort to turn me into another fresh and clean image." Sister Mo presented Best Actress with Nina Paw Hee Ching and Kara Wai Ying Hung. Their great exchanges brought the show to its climax. Sister Mo said, "I changed the script a little. Originally I wanted to make big changes, but Chair Yee Tung Sing reminded us not to make excessive changes. Because they had to coordinate with sign language and translation, big changes would be hard to follow. Thus he asked me not to improvise too outrageously. I could only make some minor changes to the script."

"I have to praise Hong Kong Film Award Chair Yee Tung Sing, the pace of the show was very smooth. He personally trained 32 young new comers to host and perform. At first I was worried that they would have stage fright. Although they were a little nervous they did ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

After the 38th Hong Kong Film Awards ended, the fresh out of the oven Best Actor Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Best Actress Chloe Maayan went to two celebrations. The third time Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor Chau Sun admitted that he could not be happier with this award. He felt that actually he had the support of many friends, only that because he went out less so he thought he had few friends. "I feel like Rocky getting to his victory in the end, but people have to be more humble. This time is the effort of the director and everyone in the crew to make the entire thing happen."

Would he continue to make movies for no salary after the award? Chau Sun joked, "Jinx, of course everyone will get rich and everyone will get paid! I just talked about government financial assistance for film production. Although HK$ 3 million isn't enough, I haven't been paid yet. I want the movie to make a little so I would get paid!" He already had the award in his hands. Chau Sun said, "I would sell the award to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Justin Cheung Kin Sing tried his hand behind the scenes. Recently he invited Linah Matsuoka and Jeana Ho Pui Yu to help with the new film he produced. They even had to make sacrifices for art! Matsuoka had a sexy performance in one scene. In it Cheung Kin Sing fantasized about Matsuoka in a sexy feather lingerie and modeled in front of him.

The temperature on the day of the shoot was only in the teens, but Matsuoka had to brave the cold in lingerie only. The shoot even went on for six hours, people would get goosebumps just thinking about it. Cheung Kin Sing said, "She was very outstanding in this scene. Everyone was breathless and wanted the shoot to keep going! Because she was a model, she was very confident in the role. She was in full control of that very hard to wear feather lingerie. That day was very cold too and the shoot took so long, with a little less endurance finishing it would be difficult!"

Playing Cheung Kin Sing's wife Jeana also had a challenge. To bring the "fat housewife" to life she gained 15 pounds, she swallowed six boxes of white rice daily and had indigestion. At night she was so full that she could not sleep! However she said that as long as the result was ideal she would be willing to do ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ron Ng Wants to Partner Up in Tackling the Music Industry Again, Bosco Wong Gives Group Name the Cold Shoulder: 'Cheap to the Point That No One Has It

Monday April 15, 2019 Hong Kong

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



Ron Ng and Bosco Wong have worked together very well for many years. [Tonight], the two won 'Weibo Popular TV [Series] Partners' for "Flying Tiger" at the 'Weibo Starlight Awards'; however, when the two accepted hk01's interview, they gave the credit to Michael Miu for winning the award this time: "In all fairness, getting 'Best Partners' this time, Michael also has to be here. (How will you guys be thanking Michael?) We will be engraving Michael's name on the award. Immediately getting a pen to write the 「三」 character on it...those that instantly come off after rubbing it".

Ron revealed earlier that this year is the 15th anniversary of the release of 《別怪她》, so he will be returning to the music industry in the future, releasing a follow-up edition of 《別怪她》: "Have no choice but, for the next half year, I also do not have much time to work on it yet. Waiting for Tang Chi Wai or Ben Chong to write songs in preparation first".

Bosco also previously released albums; when asked whether he was interested in showing off his singing voice again, Ron immediately answered, "Everyone can rest assured. We also have a chance to sing (the theme) for 'Flying Tiger II'!" The two also look forward to challenging fast songs. The best is the proportion of music being higher than singing, and trying out music that breaks out from traditional television series. Ron even came up with their group name: "I am Ron, and you are Bosco...R&B!" However, Bosco seemed incapable of accepting this name, saying that it was 'cheap ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Anthony Wong Chau Sun starred film STILL HUMAN (LUEN LOK YUN) officially opened on the 11th. Aside from nonstop promotional events he also made online calls for public support in hopes of motivating the box office performance. Two nights ago he, director Oliver Chan Siu Kuen and producer Fruit Chan Gor met with Baptist University students and shared their production experience. Chau Sun and Siu Kuen both received school memorabilia. Siu Kuen was a 2015 Baptist University graduate so this form had an extra sense of familiarity for her.

The Baptist U speaker praised them. "Siu Kuen was able to make a screenplay that touches Hong Kong people, with Chau Sun's god class acting they made a perfect demonstration. We look forward to this film being able to compete for the Best Foreign Film Oscar next year." Siu Kuen shared that when she was studying at the Baptist University she was working part time as an assistant at the Screenwriters Guild and thus met many screenwriter veterans, which was very helpful to her. At the same time she also was active in different competitions to gain experience.

Chau Sun jokingly taught students about preparation for getting into a show business career, with skin care, exercise and no gossip. The lack of boyfriend would be the most suitable and make getting into the business easier.

As of two days ago STILL HUMAN accumulated over HK$ 1 million at the box office. Chau Sun hoped to win word of mouth as well as box office ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
