In real life, Yam Tat Wa was a great husband and father. At the end of last year he celebrates a White Christmas with his wife Qi Qi and their daughter in Finland. In the Lunar New Year he would continue to travel. "Earlier we went someplace cold, for the New Year I could find some place to sweat. It would be the best to be over 40 degrees (Celsius) above. I would go to the park with my daughter, play music and jump rope together. I would go for 10 days to relax a little! When I get back I will work on a new film with (Francis) Ng Chun Yu and Wang Qianyuan."

As for Wai Sze Nga, she said that last year was a fulfilling one as she made five movies and completed her goal of challenging different characters. She wished that she would be able to continue to have new attempts this year.

He joked, "Since I am out on the streets I expect to have to give something back. Should I tell you when I am kneeling on glass? I am even more nervous than making a movie. On Valentine's Day I can't be with my girlfriend, but I am with the goddess of Brothers. I am honored for the Brothers. I hope that everyone would continue to notice her work!"

He also joked that he would complain to the director about having too few scenes with her. Did they have any physical contact? He said, "Yes, eye contact. With imagination, then we had a lot of contact."

Yui Hatano yesterday already returned to Japan. She was very popular with the men during the event. She said in Cantonese, "How are you, are you here to support me? Remember to watch (the movie). I am very happy to come to Hong Kong and meet everyone. Happy Valentine's Day."
