The film company two nights ago held a celebration for LOVE IN A PUFF (CHI MING YU CHUN GIU) because the film in its fifth week already passed 5 million at the box office. Aside from the team, director Pang Ho Cheung and leads Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Shawn Yue Man Lok attended. Ah Lok honestly said that he was very happy about the film's good box office, which he attributed to everyone's word of mouth. He also praised the online influence. Did he feel the film's category III rating affected the box office? He immediately sounded the unfair alarm and pointed out that Taiwan film MONGA had a lot of strong Taiwan language but was only rated IIB. He felt that just because not everyone understood it it was not foul language! He pointed out that the authorities should set a standard so everyone would be more certain. Chin Wa said she did not see MONGA so she dared not criticize others like Ah Lok, but she felt that despite LOVE's rating she did not do what was required for a category III rating. She joked that she was somewhat sorry and ashamed.

As for the good box office, Chin Wa said, "This is an emotional encouragement as well as the result of everyone's cooperation. (Will you work with Pang Ho Cheung again?) I will, actually he makes a romance every time, I don't understand why this time it turns into a category III film." She also revealed that he bought the rights to a 70s Taiwan film LORD GUAN VS. ALIENS. She said that she wanted to provide the voice of the aliens because she felt it would be fun! Who would she like to work with next time? She said Pang Ho Cheung, except his wife thought his acting was too superficial and forbade him from appearing on camera. Chin Wa also pointed out that Director Pang made his own story every time, thus when Ah Lok wanted to add in his own stuff the director turned him down. In addition FIRE OF CONSCIENCE (FOR LUNG) and LOVE were competing in box office longevity. Chin Wa joked, "DVD lives the longest, the box office can't compare to DVD. However I definitely support Hong Kong films."
