OVERHEARD 2 (SIT TING FUNG WON 2) yesterday held a Beijing press conference. Directors Alan Mak Siu Fai and Felix Chong Man Keung led stars Louis Koo Tin Lok and Michelle Ye (Yip Shuen) in attendance. At the press conference, Koo Tin Lok was presented with the "King of Summer Box Office" title to honor his appearance in the Mainland summer slot for the third year in a row and making over 100 million over two years at the box office. Goo Jai even had the nickname "Summer Vacation Koo".
Koo Tin Lok was rather excited when he received his title. He joked that he could finally be "crowned". Later he said that the real "kings" should be the entire OVERHEARD 2 cast and crew. Yip Shuen and Goo Jai in the film played a couple. Yip Shuen praised this husband as
very "handsome" and a great actor. He truly deserved that title of box office king. She hoped to one day benefit from him and become "the queen of the box office".
As for which of the three lead actors' performances were the most satisfactory, the directors said, "(Danie Wu) Ng Yin Cho, Koo Tin Lok and Lau Ching Wan actually have very different acting styles. OVERHEARD 2 gave them the most room to perform so their acting bug could have its fill. I like the three of them very much, they all are veteran actors with plenty of experience. During the shoot communication was particularly smooth, so the collaboration was great."
Goo Jai has been making one movie after another in recent years, but he said that later he would be interesting in working behind the scenes and next year he will have a new direction. Would Goo Jai want to direct or produce a film? He joked, "Props!"
