The "New Folk Song Prince", Malaysian singer A Niu appeared at a Mainland home shopping channel's 2nd anniversary celebration and talked about his upcoming debut as director, ICE KACANG PUPPY LOVE (CHOR LUEN HUNG DAU BING).
A Niu's debut as a director, ICE KACANG PUPPY LOVE, will be released in August. It will be a story about young people who grew up in a small Malaysian village in the early 90s. A Niu expressed that after a singing contest he became a singer, but ultimately he still had his movie dreams.
After years in show business and accumulating many friendships, A Niu finally had the chance to fulfill his dream and gathered all the heavyweight "Malay Gang" in the business. He invited Angelica Lee Sinjie, Gary Chaw (Cho Gat), Victor Huang (Wong Bun Guoon), Eric Moo (Mo Kai Yin), Penny Dai Pui Nei, Nicholas Teoh (Cheung Tung Leung) and others to guest star. A Niu even revealed details from the production. Speaking of Lee Sinjie, A Niu felt that she deserved her Golden Horse Best Actress Award as working with her he was able to get into character very easily. As for Jasmine Leong Jing Yu, A Niu felt that her eyes knew how to speak and thus arranged for zero line for her in the film. From the beginning to the end she expressed herself with her eyes. A Niu very much hoped that the audience would like the film and be able to support it at the cinemas!
As for the title, A Niu expressed that he wanted to describe first love with red bean ice. First love, like having red bean ice in the hottest afternoon, is sweet at first bite. Then some ice follows, so icy that it hurts a little. Yet very quickly it melts.
