THE CITY OF LIFE AND DEATH premiered last week. Lead actress Jiang Yiyan came to Hong Kong to promote with director Lu Chuan. This new star from the Beijing Film Academy appeared on TVB, Cable and other media interviews. Everyone was surprised that Jiang Yiyan who played a heroic prostitute in this film was very mild mannered and quiet. RTHK Radio 5's film program host Sze Kai Keung and Lau Shek Yin said that Jiang Yiyan opened the entire station's men and described her as having Fan Bingbing's feminine charm, Li Bingbing's quick wit, Gao Yuanyuan's sweet looks, Vicki Zhao Wei's cleverness, and Xu Jinglei's power of
making men's hearts pound without any word or movement. Four days after the show aired, the station received nearly 50 letters from male listeners who told Sze Kai Keung that they saw Jiang Yiyan on television and were completely under her spell. They wanted to form a fan club
through RTHK Radio 5 and invite Jiang Yiyan to appear in Hong Kong again. Sze Kai Keung responded that they were very busy with radio and did not have time to organize them. They could only relay their good intention to Jiang Yiyan's manager Wang Jinghua.
