With many hunks like Louis Koo Tin Lok, Wu Chun and Wu Jing, the film MAGIC TO WIN (HOI SUM MOR FAT) yesterday held a press conference. Producer Raymond Wong Pak Ming would also appear in the film. The event also arranged for the magician in the film to perform. Wu Chun denied planning to purchase property in Hong Kong and joked that for work to fly all over and stayed at hotels, he did not have any real home.
Yesterday many of the film's stars appeared as Koo Tin Lok, Wu Chun, Wu Jing, Yan Ni and producer Wong Pak Ming attended. The event also arranged for Japan's magician of the year Tonny to demonstrate magic. Wong Pak Ming announced the good news that the film has already been sold the distribution rights to many regions like Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, the U.S., Canada and the U.K. In addition, the film also had a mysterious new comer as its female lead. The host asked why Wong Pak Ming asked Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi to make a movie instead of a new comer. Wong Pak Ming stressed that it was only a genre issue. He said, "I look for different actors for different series. Earlier ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI) comedy used big names, HAPPY GHOST (HOI SUM GWAI) used new comers. This time MAGIC TO WIN is no exception. This film has many young girls and is a youth magic comedy."
As for Wu Jing he revealed in the film had some "environmental friendly action" with Wu Chun. Since it was not the usual type it was rather difficult. Later Wu Chun and Wu Jing were interviewed together, Wu Chun revealed that for his first film of this genre it was very fresh
and interesting. Speaking of his father coming to Hong Kong earlier, Wu Chun pointed out that his father only stayed for two or three days. Wu Chun said, "Because I have been working on movies we haven't seen each other for two months!" He stressed that this time he returned to Brunei more to be with his family and not with a child. As for buying a home in Hong Kong, Wu Chun said, "I don't know! So far I still don't have such an idea. In Hong Kong I stay in a hotel too. I have to fly back and forth and have no real home. (Would you open a store in Hong Kong?) I am busy with making movies now, I hope to have time to run a business and I would like to run it myself more." Wu Chun denied rumors that he planned to open a bakery in Hong Kong. Wu Chun pointed out that he did not. He also said, "I like bread, in Hong Kong I have had many different type of bread." Would he stay more time in Hong Kong after leaving Fahrenheit? He reiterated that he would spend more time on making movies just like before. Will Fahrenheit reunite again? He said, "Let's see what the company coordinates. This year I don't have time."
Wu Jing revealed that this time he did not play a villain. He said, "This time I didn't have to die, but I had to fight so it was very hard." Speaking of his "environmental friendly action" in the film, Wu Jing stressed that this time was more artificial. Goo Jai said that the female lead still had to be kept confidential. He and she only had scenes together at the end. Goo Jai also pointed out that this was a magic film, in the film he had the ability to tell the future. Did he ask the magician for advice? He said, "He taught me how to make a ring disappear. (Would you learn it for a marriage proposal?) That's good too." Goo Jai also said that before getting into the business he went to a psychic who predicted that he would break his leg, which finally came true last year during a film production. He said, "If the prediction is bad I have awhile to be scared, I believe in relying on my hard work."
