The Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Louis Koo Tin Lok starred film LITTLE BIG MASTER (NG GOR SIU HAI DIK HAU JEUNG) was a critical and commercial hit. As of two days ago its box office has already reached HK$ 37 million. A magazine claimed that the film will make a sequel, Chin Wa would even "sell her son for ten million" as Torres Ting Chun Yeuk would be the child star in the sequel.
Chin Wa responded online and said that since the film was based on a real life story it would not have a sequel. Everyone liked this film because of the production and Principal Lui's sincerity and faith, but commercial calculation. As for the magazine's photos of her and her son, she said that they were from Easter. She also said that her son was "not for sale", instead the magazine seemed to have sold her family and her son. She also said that she has been in the business for years and understood how it operated. Thus she had no problem with writing about her, but she did not want to involve her family and her son. She only hoped that her son would have a normal life and a simple and low key childhood. She wished for everyone to spare her family from further disturbance, and for the next time when the magazine published her son's photo to remember to blur his face.
In addition, a fan club formed online for the five child actors. The film company yesterday held a Hi-5 event for them. Also attending were Rain Lau Yuk Chui, Philip Keung Ho Man, Ng Yuen Yi and the director, the screen writer. They even had a hand printing ceremony. Five children even posed for sticker photos with viewers. After 15 years of marriage Hak Jai admitted that after working with the five cute children he had the impulse to become a parent. He admitted that he and his wife were making plans. He said that they could not leave Hong Kong because their maid just left Hong Kong and no one would take care of their puppy. Lau Yuk Chui admitted that she did not want to have a child. Although she has thought about adoption, she felt that she was happier with playing with other people's babies. In addition she wanted to enjoy being in the world of two.
