Kara Wai Ying Hung and Stephy Tang Lai Yan two days ago promoted their new film at the Busan Film Festival. Sister Siu Hung thought that the jewelry she brought from Hong Kong vanished. As she was about to "report" it to the sponsors and discuss compensation, she discovered tha she threw it into the hotel trash can.

Best Actress Wai Ying Hung two nights ago attended the new film THE BOLD, THE CORRUPT AND THE BEAUTIFUL's Busan Film Festival world premiere. Although she has won countless awards, Sister Siu Hung was absent minded. She looked all over for the jewelry that she brought from Hong Kong. She not only turned her luggage over but also called the airline to ask if she left it on the plane. As she was planning to discuss compensation with the sponsor, her door bell rang. A hotel service clerk said, "There was a bag of jewelry in the trash can, we are confirming if the client discarded it?"

She said, "This trip has been tightly scheduled, in two short days I had to be interviewed nonstop all over. In my mind was only fast, fast, fast......I would only mess up like this in a moment of chaos! Haha!" In the past film festival guests have stayed at this hotel. The clerk might have often run into such incidents and thus confirmed this bag of "trash". Sister Siu Hung thanked this dutiful clerk with a pair of hand crafted earrings that she bought in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Film Award winning new director Cheung King Wai's first feature film SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE MIST (LAN TIN BAK WON) also held a premiere there on the same day. Two days ago was lead actress Stephy Tang Lai Yan's birthday. Director Cheung prepared a Korean seafood feast and a birthday cake to celebrate. Stephy revealed that it was her first birthday at Busan and she was both excited and fulfilled. "To be able to watch a movie that I have looked forward to for a long time on my birthday, my feelings are very complicated -- like blue sky doesn't necessarily have white clouds, but after white clouds is definitely a blue sky. This is the best birthday present this year!"

Martial art actor Conan Lee Yuen Ba retired from film and returned to the U.S. after his mother was diagnosed with scleroderma with only a few months to live. He took care of her and even studied medical nutrition therapy, but his mother in the end passed away in an accident.

Lee Yuen Ba had no regret. Because he was close to his mother, he would even give all the money he made from his movies to her. Although he took care of his mother for 17 years, he stated that he cherished this very valuable period of time together. He also said that he never thought about returning to film because he would be even happier if he had 10 more years to be with his mother. Yet he believed that Heaven brought her in so she did not need to suffer anymore. Thus he was determined to return to China and Hong Kong to make movies. He also wrote a script about his mother. After Feng Xiaogang's wife Xu Fan read it she asked to play his mother. He said, "I feel she is suitable for the Mama role. She also helped me a lot. I am very grateful. This time this film will be shot in Hollywood, it will be the first film of my comeback. I will produce, write, star and direct. It will be about the process of Mama's treatment and my study of medicine. However the resulting positive energy has to let the entire world know that Mama is the most important. I also wrote a lot of scripts. Because I want to be fully prepared for my return, if anyone want to work together I can."

Speaking of many film industry action actors like Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Max Zhang Jin, Lee Yuen Ba admitted that now few actors could fight. Thus he was very happy to still have this group of outstanding action actors. He hoped to have a chance to work with everyone.

He recently participated in the Juno Mak Chun Lung new film SONS OF THE NEON NIGHT (FUNG FOR SAN LAM), he praised him for how serious and attentive he was at work. Despite his young age he was very talented, humble and friendly. Thus the collaboration has been very pleasant.

I never thought about how tough shooting underwater would be. Fighting without oxygen tank was very hard." Yue Man Lok also felt that making a fight scene underwater was tough. "The director told me that day, he wanted to shoot the underwater fight scene under a Number 10 Storm Signal. I told him that absolutely would not be easy. When I watched the film I was very surprised how successful the director's shoot was."

Speaking of artists leaving Wong Cho Lam's entertainmen company, Master Sin said that he has been taking note of his nephew's news.
