Nick Cheung Ka Fai in recent years have been working on more serious dramas, earlier he even directed and starred in a ghost film. Finally he had a chance to work on a romantic comedy TEMPORARY FAMILY (SUT LUEN GUP YEUNG) and even worked with the just as funny Sammi Cheng Sau Man. In the film Ka Fai played a real estate agent, and even had a bed scene with his first time co-star Sammi.
Ka Fai said that before the shoot he did not know Sammi at all, but he never expected during the shoot that they would have great chemistry and the result was great. He said, "I am very happy to be able to build a bond in such a short time." Did he have any intimate scene with Sammi? He admitted that they had one and it was very "absurd". Although it was not excessive, it was still daring. He had to remove Sammi's clothing but the scene would not feel dirty. Ka Fai also said that because Sammi trusted him he could perform more openly.
As for more intimate scenes with female leads lately like with Thai transgender Poyd and Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau) and now with Sammi, he truly was lucky; Ka Fai, "In comparison to (Louis) Koo Tin Lok and (Andy) Lau Tak Wa, I am just a 'virgin'. Poyd and I didn't kiss, it was just a visual effect." He also said that Sammi and Sum Yau were both goddesses, and they were only working. He joked, "No one should get mad, sorry." Angelababy also took part in the film. He praised Baby for being able to ditch her image for her performance, which surprised him.
Ka Fai continued, earlier he wanted to ask Cheuk Wan Chi to help with a script. He never guessed that Cheuk Wan Chi wrote the TEMPORARY FAMILY script. He praised Ah Chi for having a very complete script despite being a new director.
