Michael Chow Man Kin opened a Shengjian Bao shop in Tin Hau. Yesterday the new shop officially opened. Michael this time with friends invited over HK$ 1.5 million on the new shop and planned to open another in Mongkok. Speaking of Oscar Siu Yun Bong's success with his Shengjian Bao shop, was he worried about the competition? He said, "Everyone had different taste, should no one open a burger shop with McDonald's around? You can provide different choices to the public."

After 18 years away from the film industry, Michael revealed that later he will participate in the Philip Yung Tsz Kwong directed new film. In it he will play four great inspectors with Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Patrick Tam Yiu Man. Michael said that Yung Tsz Kwong saw his car commercial and immediately invited him to perform. Although he did not have much of an acting bug, this time he ran into a good script and thus he agreed to perform.

After years away from film, was he worried that he would not be used to it? He said, "No, people grow up. In addition I become handsome and stable. With more life experience, the acting will be better too."

Speaking of old flame Shirley Kwan Suk Yi's guilty plea to assault, Michael said that they have lost contact for years. He joked, "If I make a kung fu film, I can get her for the fight scenes."

Thank you, Big Brother Jackie Chan for forgiving my past mistake. Actuallhy he already made some gifts for me a long time ago. I am truly very touched! Big Brother! Thank you! I would continue to be a good actress!"

Len Len revealed that she was the new female star that Jackie Chan criticized anonymously. Jackie Chan mentioned in an interview that he was upset at a female star's work attitude and "arrogance".

Hak Jai played the lead for the first time. He admitted that he was very anxious about having to "carry the heavy load" for the first time. Now he finally learned to adjust. He revealed that now he has four films on hand, one of which will be shot in the Mainland. Thus he will have to commute, despite the hardship it will still be a type of motivation. In DIN Hak Jai played an Alzheimer's Disease patient. He felt that amnesia and insanity was close, so he had to put more effort into grasping the precise performance. Liu Chi Yu also said that she was very happy to work with Brother Hak because she already watched his performance at age 2. Their relationship in the film was mysterious. She even hoped to be able to sing the theme song with Brother Hak.

DaDa will play an officer worker and be paired with Chow Kwok Yin. However because her boyfriend is immature she projects her rage onto her cousin Keung Ho Man with punches and kicks. DaDa joked that she was looking forward to this film. DaDa did not look much different, she revealed that during the period she went on vacation with her family. She also studied in England and Japan. Actually the director asked her to put on light make up and even without make up. Yesterday she only had eye liners and light make up so she would feel a little more real.

Only do I play minor roles well would I have even more opportunities."

Ben Sir revealed that the upcoming release NEVER TOO LATE (OI CHING LO DAI SAU) played a lazy cop. Samantha Ko Hoi Ning did not slap him, but he was involved in a kidnapping. As for his recent post of a photo with Donnie Yen Chi Tan, he revealed, "Now I am working on a school film with Yen Chi Tan. Both Chi Tan and I are teachers. I won't need to fight, I only know that it will be a Hong Kong film. My part is pretty funny." Ben Sir said that his film work is slowing progressing. He hoped that the audience would like him more and more and he would have more and more supporters. He would gladly try different things, but he might not consider any nude or deranged characters.

The Alex Fong Lik Sun and Samantha Ko Hoi Ning starred new film yesterday released its trailer. In it Ko Ling on the streets of Causeway Bay slapped boyfriend Siu Fong 19 times while he was pleading on his knees. Referred to as "slave beast" Siu Fong said that everyone only saw the the surface, not when he whipped Ko Ling and when she beg on her knees on glass. As he continued to talk about his "glorious history", Ko Ling called and all the arrogance disappeared. "Concert tickets? I am going to get them now!" The audience learned that he actually was "comforting himself".

Ko Ling said that the "beast taming" scene was very stressful. "The director asked for it to be realistic, I had to look like I was hitting Siu Fong very hard. However having to slap him so many times, I really was afraid that I would hurt him. So I was more nervous than enjoying it! Finally one time my finger nail scratched his noses! I really was super sorry!" While in the film she was an expert of slapping people, in real life she should be an expert among experts? She said that she has never slapped anyone in real life. "So during rehearsal I would crack up, but I know I would have no chance for a bad take . During the shoot I had to hypnotize myself to be in character, as I kept telling myself, 'I am a Sassy Girl' to be able to successfully finish this scene!"

Siu Fong said that the director's "slave beast" shoot was a "set up" and "excessive". He not only had to kneel on the streets of Causeway Bay but also being slapped in front of everyone. Speaking of being slapped, he said that he only felt "super awkward". Only after the shoot did he discover the scratches on his face.

Yu in the film played Grace's sister, who also investigated the case. The former said that she has played an uniformed officer before. This time she even had to sit next to Grace during the drifting. Yu said that she did not have a license and felt that her fate was in her co-star's hand, thus she wanted the film company to increase her insurance policy. In addition, Yu also had to investigate the case in cosplay. "I leave the sexy ones to Grace. She is a goddess, I can play Gundam or a man." Yu in the film also had to silly. She said that in reality she looked smart but actually was very dumb. She often put the wrong school uniform on her child and has left the country with expired documents. Reporters joked that she did not look smart either. Yu helplessly laughed and said, "You see how smart I was in the first half of my life? I hope I can be in the second half of my life!"

Recently he heard his son called him Daddy, he was so happy that he was shaking. He said that he has never gone on vacation with Kingfung. Earlier when they promoted in Beijing, they had the rare occasion to turn work into play. He said, "In my mind he still is a kid, in the brink of an eye he is already 27. He is much more mature. Later we will promote in Singapore and Malaysia, then we can go on vacation together again."

When Kingfung learned that Siu Ho was shaking when he was called Daddy, Kingfung joked, "Really? I am very happy to work with Daddy too. When I was little I thought about whether I would have a chance to work together as father and son, but I thought I would work with Uncle Chin Kar Lok. I would never imagine that I would be able to act with Daddy in my third film." Siu Ho looked forward to promote overseas with him. Kingfung said, "I value family as well, I have never lacked fatherly love. Although Daddy didn't teach me kung fu, but when I was little Uncle taught me to the hand stand. He even stole Daddy's favorite Ultraman toy for me to play with."

Actors Yuen Qiu, Eric Kot Man Fai, Edward Ma Chi Wai, Lam Yiu Sing and Wiyona Yeung Lau Ching participated. Seeing Ah Kot and Sister Qiu in matching clothing, Ah Kot said that in the film Sister Qiu played his sister in law. She took over her late husband's martial art school, took in a group of juvenile delinquents and taught them kung fu to find life directions.

Sister Qiu said that in the film this time she only demonstrated kung fu moves to young people and did not need to use real kung fu. Instead the young people were well trained. Yeung Lau Ching's Brazilian Jiujutsu match with a Hong Kong champion was her first; Ah Kot said that he only had peanuts on the sideline and watched the show. This time was their first collaboration. Sister Qiu said that earlier she and Ah Kot both provided voices to the Korean film MAPADO. At the time Ah Kot taught her a lot of voice work technique. Ah Kot praised Sister Qiu for her rich filmmaking experience but she still was worried about her lines. Sister Qiu said that she was afraid her Cantonese would not be fluent enough, so she asked the director to give all the lines to Ah Kot.
