Nick Cheung Ka Fai has surprised everyone since his turn as UNBEATABLE's muscle man. Lately he promoted his new film THE WHITE STORM (SO DUK) and again challenged the sexy standard with his production, as he posed for an intimate shot with a half naked Thai transgender model Poyd. Because they have worked together on the film, they had great chemistry during the shoot. Poyd, topless, leaned on Ka Fai in a very daring manner. Cheung Ka Fai said, "I wouldn't mind my co-star's sex, I respect her very much. Being a man or a woman is her personal choice. After a week in production everyone already saw her as a hot woman. Many looked forward to her arrival as everyone wanted to see her."
THE WHITE STORM is 130 minutes long, but actually to make the story even more intense many exciting scenes are cut. In one scene Louis Koo Tin Lok danced with children. Normally very cool on the set, when Goo Jai ran into the group of children he immediately turned into a big kid who was full of smiles!
In the December 5 release THE WHITE STORM, leads Koo Tin Lok, Sean Lau Ching Wan and Nick Cheung Ka Fai have been promoting nonstop. Reportedly the current 130 minute long release had many exciting scenes, like Cheung Ka Fai and Elanne Kong Yeuk Lam's argument and break up scene at the airport, cut for film length. However, the most regrettable was the dance scene with Koo Tin Lok and a group of children. THE WHITE STORM aside from brotherhood also tug at the heart strings with family. Going undercover, Koo Tin Lok could not often see his wife Yolanda Yuan Quan and their daughter. He could only take time to attend his daughter's school activities. The always cool Goo Jai would rarely have a smile on the set, especially when he was working. However when he shot the scene with children, he turned into a big kid and had a smile the entire time.
On the day of the shoot Goo Jai arrived earlier at the school and watched the children's rehearsal once. Then he danced with the children. Goo Jai kept chuckling during the shoot. Off camera Goo Jai was very popular with children. One boy even gave him candy. The children and their parents lined up for photos and Goo Jai turned no one away. This scene took an entire day to shoot, but in the end it could not escape the fate of the cutting room floor. Goo Jai did not mind and respected the director's decision. When the team promoted the film in Rome, Goo Jai missed the chance for an early glimpse because he wanted to visit the Vatican. He could only listen to Lau Ching Wan and Cheung Ka Fai's reviews. Goo Jai who was promoting in the Mainland will return to Hong Kong next month and book a show out of his own pocket to watch the film.
