Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo) has been in the entertainment circle for almost 20 years. In his film development, Wong Kar Wai, John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) and Peter Chan Ho Sun have been quite influential to him. Gum Sing Mo said that when he worked on Wong Kar Wai's CHUNG KING EXPRESS (CHUNG HING SUM LUM), he learned what visual creativity was because the lack of a script gave infinite freedom and space; this film provided him with even more opportunities to work in Japan. As he started as a singer to an actor, his identity was recognized and his career drastically changed. He worked with Ng Yu Sum on RED CLIFF (CHET BIK), Gum Sing Mo admired Ng Yu Sum's passion for film and his gentle and humble attitude after rising to fame. He said that Chan Ho Sun was the director who was able to provide actors with a sense of security. They had many opportunities to work together, he had a lot of patience in discussions and communications with actors.
