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.

Grace worried about injuries from the dangerous scene. As for the earlier "robbery" incident in Malaysia, she said that it has come to an end. In the future she will also go there again for work.

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!"

Chin Siu Ho and his son Andrew Pong Kingfung two nights ago attended the charity premiere of BIO RAIDERS (SUN FA YEUK SI). Speaking of the father and son pair's first film, Siu Ho said that it had two firsts, he was the executive producer for the first time and it was his first film with Kingfung.

Siu Ho admitted that when Kingfung was little they did not have much contact and were a little estranged, but after making this film they became much closer. 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."

The film YUP TIN LUNG (ENTER THE METAL CAGE) yesterday held its production start ceremony in Tuen Mun. 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.
