The film BOUNTY HUNTER yesterday held its Hong Kong launch ceremony. Boss Raymond Wong Pak Ming, director Terra Shin and actors Lee Min-Ho, Louis Fan Siu Wong, Karena Ng Chin Yu, Tiffany Tang Yan and Jeremy Jones (Tsui Ching Hei) attended. Almost 300 fans appeared as well. Lee Min-Ho and Tang Yan remembered a scene in which they were trapped in a trunk. They admitted that it was awkward and ambiguous. Lee Min-Ho revealed that inside he could only smell Tang Yan's perfume.

Lee Min-Ho yesterday came from Korea to Hong Kong to promote. He and Mainland actress Tang Yan appeared at last and fans shrieked. In demin, Lee Min-Ho smiled and waved to the fans and said in Cantonese, "How is everyone, I am Lee Min-Ho. Long time no see!" He also praised the beautiful Hong Kong sky, each time he came he really wanted to take a boat to enjoy the Hong Kong scenery.

As for BOUNTY's box office expectation, he pointed out that the film was popular with fans and hoped that it would be able to leave everyone with a good impression. This time Lee Min-Ho played a security officer who had to complete his mission. He had his share of wire and action stunts, but with the assistance of the crew his performance was rather satisfactory. Tang Yan said that she had fight scenes too. Before the performance she would first train and practice, so the shoots went rather smoothly. Speaking of the on screen romance, in one scene they were trapped in a narrow trunk. Tang Yan said, "The trunk is very small and the two of us are tall, so it is a little difficult and a tight fit. During the shoot the atmosphere is a little awkward, but the performance isn't stressful at all!" Lee Min-Ho said, "The space is very small and very tight, inside I can only smell her perfume. It is a little embarrassing, but the shoot is OK!" Later the event arranged for the leads to make gun holding poses for photos. Fans naturally lost their minds and screamed. Finally, the director took a selfie with the actors.

Ng Chin Yu, Fan Siu Wong and Tsui Ching Hei played games with fans. Chin Yu said that fans of "Oppa" from everywhere were absurd. Everyday on the set a catering truck would provide coffee and snacks, from breakfast, lunch, dinner to late night snacks it had everything. Fan Siu Wong said that the film made 200 million in the Mainland and he hoped that a sequel would be made. Aside from the original team strong additions could be made. Reporters suggested adding Raymond Lam Fung. Chin Yu laughed and pointed at Siu Wong. "Add your wife (JJ Jia), she came to visit the set too!" Who was more handsome between her boyfriend Lam Fung and Lee Min-Ho? Chin Yu said, "You always ask that, how do I answer you? He (pointing at Fan Siu Wong) is the most handsome! Actually both are pretty, both have many fans!"

Fan Siu Wong said that in the film he took over a dozen kicks from Lee Min-Ho. In private he asked and learned that he has studied Tae Kwan Do. No matter he was so serious and strong. Did he strike back? Siu Wong said, "No, but I did kiss him, mouth to mouth. It was both his and me guy kiss, but it was just for laughs. It was shot between the space of touching and not touching with positional photography!"

Boss Wong Pak Ming asked Lee Min-Ho to perform because he was the most handsome, the tallest and the best fighter. Every time fans heard his name they would scream once.

Two nights ago Nicholas Tse Ting Fung as the Digital Domain Greater Chinese Asia Pacific Region commander and chair attended the first global and Greater Chinese strategy announcement in Beijing. 13 years ago he already stepped on in the digital world when he opened in 2003 the special effect production company Post Production Office in Hong Kong and officially began his journey as an entrepreneur. At the press conference, Digital Domain chief Xie An told Ting Fung not to make movies. "You are too great! Don't make movies anymore, just directly manage the company. You can use VR to replace you in movies."

Ting Fung at the event revealed that the company will continue to develop in the Great Chinese region and even the Asia Pacific region media, entertainment and technology world. Ting Fung invested HK$ 300 million on China's first 4D cuisine film COOK UP A STORM (FUNG MEI GONG WU ji KUET JIN SIK SUN). Aside from the visual 3D experience, the film also added a scented experience. Ting Fung earlier put on an apron in a butchering scene, but the pork on the chopping board attracted a lot of flies. The crew had to help to drive them away with bug spray before the shoot could take place.
