Yuen Fu Wa said that he was already calm to prepare for his new job. "As soon as I got back to Hong Kong I had to rehearse for a play. Ten I came here to work. I haven't stopped working, but I am happy. Although it's the first time I would work with Man Nui, we are all laughs and I already forgot about the exhaustion."

Working with Tang Shui Man and Lam Tak Shun for the first time, Yuen Fu Wa praised their spark. "Working with Man Nui for the first time, we had a lot to talk about.

The Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR (GUNG HEI BAK POR) asked Patrick Tse Yin to guest star. Indeed wherever Sei Gor was beauties would be there. Director Pang Ho Cheung thoughtfully arranged for five great beauties Isabella Leong Lok Sze, DaDa Chan Jing, Isabel Chan Yat Ning, June Lam Siu Ha, Ashina Kwok Yik Sum to be around him, as all five would have a chance to work with Sei Gor. Would Sei Gor pick on the new comers? "I already haven't worked on anything for two to three years, the world has changed. It's more like they are picking on me. Now I have to learn from new comers instead. The director and they all say that they have a lot of fun. I hope to have a chance to work together again." How did working with Pang Ho Cheung and the team feel? Sei Gor said, "They are my junior colleagues, I don't dare to criticize them. I follow their orders completely."

Ron Ng Puzzled About Kenneth Ma Becoming a Different Person: 'Has Become More Humourous'

Saturday November 17, 2018 Hong Kong

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

 

 

[Yesterday], Ron Ng attended the premiere of the movie "Tracey". The lead of the movie is Philip Keung. Ron said that Philip is his idol, so he definitely had to come show his support today: "He is an actor I really like. After filming "Shock Wave" with him and chatting with him, discovered that he is a high-quality actor. He is worthy of me learning from him".

In the movie, Philip had to dress up as a woman. Ron laughingly said that he also wanted to challenge it: "Nobody looked for me. Philip, well...he has a big contrast. Seeing such a dark and manly person wear fishnet stockings, in the comedy world, usually the fair-skinned do this type of character. [Them] finding Philip, I also feel that it is right because the contrast is big. Would resonate with viewers".

Recently, Bosco Wong flew to England to do location filming for "Flying Tiger", so Ron has taken the opportunity to use these few days to rest well: "Have been doing repairs on [my] house and car these few days. Certainly told someone else to do it". Ron revealed that it has been too long since he has filmed with Kenneth Ma, as he pointed out that he seems to have changed into a different person: "Saw him when working with him previously. Said to him, 'How come you have become so much more handsome?' Also, he has become more cheerful and humourous. Don't know what's the matter...do you know? (Dating.) I don't know. I just saw through newspapers and magazines".

Filmko purchased Japanese writer Kengo Ishiguro's book THE LIFE OF QUILL, THE SEEING-EYE DOG film rights to make the touching Hong Kong guide dog film LITTLE Q (SIU Q). The Japanese version QUILL already was released in 2003. LITTLE Q yesterday held a production start ceremony. Director Law Wing Cheong, actors Simon Yam Tat Wa, Gigi Leung Wing Kei, Law Chung Him, Charlie Yeung Choi Nei, Roger Kwok Chun On, Angela Yuen Lai Lam, JJ Jia attended. Yam Tat Wa in the film played a visually impaired person, the most difficult role in his film career.

Yam Tat Wa admitted that this was the hardest time in his decades in film. Aside from pretending to have no focus and looking lost in front of the camera, he also had to be led by a guide dog. Thus he could not be in control in many scenes. In one scene the guide dog led him across the road. Due to the noisy environment and the spotlights, it took six hours and 48 takes to complete. Was his Best Actor confidence shaken? Brother Wa said, "I grew up in hardship, and I also had to rely on myself to perform properly. Although the entire world knows .....

The film KUNG FU MONSTER (MO LUM GWAI SAU) will open on January 3 next year in Hong Kong. Louis Koo Tin Lok, Chen Xuedong and Bea Hayden (Kwok Bik Ting) starred in the Andrew Lau Wai Keung directed and Derek Yee Tung produced film that was full of modern Hong Kong style humor, turning the martial art wold into a crazy party. Director Lau Wai Keung said, "This film looks like a costume film, but I made it like a modern film. It has a lot of funny lines and would satirize the present with the past. The martial art world on a certain level became the modern society. Whatever is happening with the society now, we would use different characters to express it."

The film released its official poster and first trailer. In the trailer the often talked about "monster" can be seen in full view. It looks more cute than "monster" like! The director said that actually whether it was a "monster" or not it only acted as a mirror. However you would treat the "monster" it would return in kind. The director also gave this "monster" a rather old school name, "Chiu Choi" (attracting money), because Hong Kong people resist that less. This "Chiu Choi" also took the director half a year's time before seeing the light of day. Thus for the director himself, this "Chiu Choi" has quite a heavy ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
