Public prosecutor Kuryu of the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office Josai Branch and Administrative Official Chika Asagi question the driver who hit the victim. Then, out of the blue, Kuryu’s ex-Administrative Official Maiko Amamiya appears. As a public prosecutor of the Osaka District Public Prosecutors Office Namba Branch, Amamiya is pursuing a key witness in a bribery case involving the yakuza, who happens to be the victim of the hit-and-run at the embassy. They realize this was no ordinary accident. While Kuryu and Amamiya launch a joint investigation, Amamiya is dismayed that Kuryu hasn’t changed one bit after all these years. Kuryu attempts to question the staff at the Neustria Embassy about circumstances surrounding the date of the accident, but he is promptly denied. Embassies operate outside the reach of Japanese law, like foreign countries on Japanese soil. To infringe upon these international rights, even in a quest for justice, would be detrimental to diplomatic relations. But Kuryu refuses to give up and continues to approach the embassy with no success, until an official of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs begins to apply pressure to drop the investigation. Kuryu is up against a formidable wall – the inviolable territory called an “embassy.”

The Mabel Cheung Yuen Ting directed, Alex Law Kai Yui produced film TALE OF THREE CITIES (SAM SING GEI) two nights ago held a charity premiere. Aside from them and leads Sean Lau Ching Wan, Tang Wei and Elaine Jin (Kam Yin Ling), Aarif Rahman (Lee Chi Ting), Simon Yam Tat Wa and his wife also came to show their support. Cheung Yuen Ting revealed that the team from age 7 to 70 were all enamored with Ching Wan. Perhaps because he once expressed the "astronaut" declaration to his wife, he immediately became god in the hearts of women. When the team chose the top ten hunks, Ching Wan was on top. Playing Tang Wei's daughter in the film, the seven year old child actor refused to let go after Ching Wan picked her up. Law Kai Yui even said that Ching Wan in Putonghua sounded like "light kiss", thus all the women wanted to give him a peck. However in the end only Tang Wei received three light kisses from Ching Wan.

Ching Wan looked somewhat awkward about the director's praise, as he joked that he found out too late. However Tang Wei continued to compliment him. "With you, everyone has energy. However you never converse with me." Actually Tang Wei went online to search for Ching Wan's information to get to know him. However because he was too cool on the set, she did not dare to speak to him. Ching Wan awkwardly said, "Actually you already ran a background check on me, luckily I only find out now." Cheung Yuen Ting revealed that only after Tang Wei suffered a collapsed lung from performing too hard did Ching Wan pay more attention to her.

Actually while Tang Wei was shooting in Anhui and used a carrying pole to carry her two daughters, she used too much force and her lung collapsed. She said that originally after the shoot she had to fly to the U.S., she ended up in the hospital instead. She said, "I had a minimally invasive surgery to inflate my lung again. After resting for three days, I immediately returned to work because I didn't want to hinder the progress. (Did your husband know?) He originally wanted to visit the set, but with a collapsed lung I was worried that I couldn't take care of him. In addition few people on the team knew English, so I told him not to come. (Did his heart ache?) Actually I have been injured in every movie, many times on the back and legs." Did Ching Wan only pay attention to Tang Wei because of her collapsed lung? He helplessly said, "We have always been chatting, but I don't say much. I have a lot to remember on the set, and I have to deliver the Putonghua lines. One day she left halfway and I finally learned that her lung collapsed." Ching wan said that at the time he was very scared, as he worried whether her lung collapsed because of him. He also worried whether the team would stop production and whether he could return to Hong Kong.

[2015.09.01] ANNIE LIU DOES NOT NEED A BRAVE BOYFRIEND

The film KNOCK KNOCK WHO'S THERE? (YAU HAT DOH) two nights ago held an audience appreciation event. Attending artists included Jennifer Tse Ting Ting, Carrie Ng Ka Lai and Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau). Yet Ting Ting stated that she would decline any interview without specifying a reason.

Sum Yau has been busy with work. She said that she still had to promote another film GUIA IN LOVE (DUNG TAP HA DIK LUEN YUN). She admitted that she did not dare to watch KNOCK, perhaps she would watch it one afternoon. Reporters suggested for her to go with a male friend. She said that some guys were more scared than girls. Has anyone play scared for her to protect him? She said that she has not run into anyone like that, but it would be very hard to focus on watching the movie. She would rather watch with a group of cool headed friends to have a sense of security.

Would Sum Yau want to meet a brave boyfriend? She said that if her boyfriend was afraid of watching ghost films she could accept that. She did not need anyone to be very brave in this area. What if her other half was afraid of cockroaches? Sum Yau said being scared and afraid of cockroaches were not important either, the most important was not to scream. If he was scared, she would try to protect him. However she could not accept out of control screaming. Sum Yau said that in high school many male classmates screamed.

Speaking of this film's box office, Sum Yau felt that it would be a little less because school has already begun. She could only hope that everyone would still go and watch it.

Playing a serial killer in the film, Eric Kwok Wai Leung said that his wife Grace Ip Pui Man laughed as she watched the film. He also said that he received praises from William So Wing Hong. "After watching it he said that he liked my buns, but he didn't like that the buns belonged to the double. I thought about personally performing the scene, but my manager and Grace both said save it for later. Maybe Grace wants to 'privatize' my buns."
