At the time my character was someone who dared to do anything for a living. I don't know if it would change after the production starts." Siu Chai joked that he still has not begun work, but he already attended four costume fittings. A year ago he already knew he had the chance to work with Ching Wan, which he truly looked forward to. Unfortunately he still has not begun work yet.

On the day of the production start ceremony, she took the chance to ask two elders Ching Wan and Siu Chai for advice. As for To Kei Fung, she expressed that she has only been in contact with the director for a few days and thought he was very polite. She heard that Director To was very strict. Before the shoot she kept worrying. After several days of work she felt that he only pretended to be mean on the set, personally he was very polite and friendly. She joked that she already saw through his face down card and now is no longer afraid. Ah Si even said that sometimes she realized that the director would suddenly blur out a few lines of jokes.
Ching Wan said that Ah Si felt Director To was funny because she was only in touch with his surface. Actually the director truly was very mean. Siu Chai also said that when he worked with Director To for the first time, he heard Director To kept scolding at someone with foul language. However none of it was repeated. He even invented foul language of his own, which was quite funny. At the time no one dared to laugh. Siu Chai said that the director actually had the heart of a child, very serious and very demanding. Ching Wan said that during interviews everyone should avoid talking about the director. He was afraid that after the news was published, the director would be different when they returned to work.
