The director and the "nosy bitches" in the film Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, DaDa Chan Jing, Hanjin Tan (Chan Woon Yan), Tsui Tin Yau, Susan Shaw Yam Yam, Jo Kuk Cho Lam all wore red in support. Sei Gor Patrick Tse Yin also attended. Chin Wa revealed that for the Lunar New Year he would take his son to learn to ski. She too was a skiing novice. When suggested that her husband could teach her, she said that her husband would not bother. There truly was a difference before and after marriage!

Was Chin Wa one of the "nosy bitches"? She pointed at the director and said, "Actually the director is the nosiest. He is always pretending to work but actually listening to other people's gossips, which you will see later in a movie!" Chin Wa admitted that this time the director used something funny that happened to her friend at a cafe in the film, with her playing her friend's role. Was she not afraid that her friend would call her "nosy" after watching the film? Chin Wa said, "That's why I very early on already told my friend that a great cast would interpret it, I immediately got approval!" ,br>

Wu Tsz Tung earlier with WEEDS ON FIRE (DIM NG BO) attended the Toronto Film Festival, but this time he was able to go to London for the first time for an art festival with MEN ON THE DRAGON. He was rather excited and anxious. He explained, "Earlier the director and Jennifer (Yu Heung Yi) went to a New York film festival, the audience reaction was great." After the screening, the audience kept asking the director and Wu Tsz Tung questions. "An English viewer said that this type of inspirational film was very 'marketable' in England and would have a lot of room to exist. He hoped the director would bring this type of ideas to England." Both he and the directors were greatly encouraged after hearing that.

Although the schedule was rather tight, for his first visit in London Wu Tsz Tung had to take time for himself. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

In the end they also gave away couplets and wished fans an advanced Happy New Year. Ching Wan's fans successfully caught Ching Wan's eyes with the banner "ageless god Lau Ching Wan, give me glimpse if you can".

Cheung Ka Fai and Lam Ka Yun's promotion was just as passionate as fans and onlookers filled the entire venue. On the stage they shared their production experience. Ka Yun mentioned that she personally performed the car stunt in Australia. Professional and calm throughout, she actually fooled everyone with her acting. After the cameras stopped rolling she was still out of it and needed tea to settle down.

Leads Sean Lau Ching Wan, Nick Cheung Ka Fai and Karena Lam Ka Yun participated. Ka Fai jokingly asked the audience if anyone wanted to hear him speak Cantonese or Putonghua. A debate began in the audience, some said that Cantonese was more intimate while others looked forward to his entertaining Putonghua that made him "Jar Jar Fai".

INTEGRITY was shot on location in Australia. The Canberra airport gave unprecedented access to its restricted area for a Hong Kong film shoot. Even the airport gate was actual location. Lam Ka Yun said, "I never really imagine that the airport would block an entire gate for us to make a movie. The director and the producer are amazing!" Ka Fai also worked on a film in the airport restricted area for the first time. He hoped that the Hong Kong government would assist Hong Kong films, which he believed would help elevate the film quality.

Gigi Leung Wing Kei and Pang Ho Cheung promoted their film MISSBEHAVIOR (GUNG HEI BAK POR) on TVB. Gigi said, "People in Hong Kong look forward to seeing Lunar New Year films every year. I am very happy that I once had a hit FAT CHOI SPIRIT (LEK GU LEK GU SUN NIN CHOI), which I have seen many times too." First time directing a Lunar New Year film, Pang Ho Cheung said, "I really want to make some crazy comedy to make this city laugh and cheer. As for the subject this time, I am pretty nosy myself. Even when I am doing something serious I would stop everything to be nosy. Every group on the phone would have something, and it would go on all night; among the actors this time, I feel Chan Woon Yan (Hanjin Tan) would have the nosy potential." Gigi chimed in, "I feel everyone would have some nosy quality. If you want to be a part of this community you naturally would want to think what is happening around you."
