Louis Koo Tin Lok and Bernice Liu Bik Yi attended an UNICEF charity raffle and volunteer certificate presentation ceremony yesterday. Although Goo Jai had a leg injury, he still had to work. He honestly said that movement would erode his meniscus, the condition would become worse. He could only wear a brace to stabilize the right leg.
At the end of the month Goo Jai originally had to visit the Mainland but now that has been postponed. How much money has he lost due to the injury? Goo Jai said that the five or six films that he took would still be made, he could only try to postpone as much as he could. He had no way to accept new jobs however, actually he did not suffer any loss. Right now he would first work on OVERHEARD 2 (SIT TING FUNG WON 2) and a Lunar New Year film. Luckily lately in all the scenes he made he sat in an office. When reporters joked that someone would sit on his lap, he joked that due to leg pain he could not let anyone there.
Liu Bik Yi made THE KING OF FIGHTERS over a years ago, but the film has gone directly to DVD and shattered her Hollywood dream. Bik Yi honestly said that she was not disappointed and knew that the film would be released in Singapore and Malaysia. The DVD was probably counterfeit. She pointed out that the film was originally slated for an U.S. release this year. Was she disappointed? She said that she has already done her part. Since the contract did not stipulate a release date it was beyond her contract. This film was her first English film and overseas production. She also revealed that lately she accepted another English film, but the production start date has not been confirmed yet.
