The Dante Lam Chiu Yin directed FOR LUNG (FIRE DRAGON) has been in production. Lead actor Leon Lai Ming this time truly pushed his limits. Not only did he run in Tsim Sha Tsui but also climbed on a four story high billboard for an action scene. Earlier Lai Ming expressed that he did not know that he had to climb as high as four stories. Action director Chin Kar Lok even described this scene as very simple. Fortunately the shoot went smoothly. However, this scene actually has not yet been completed.

Yesterday Lai Ming again climbed the billboard and still appeared with the facial hair. Although Lai Ming was willing to climb to the billboard, director Lam Chiu Yin was very attentive as well. The more dangerous action scenes he left to the stunt doubles. However one of the jumps Lai Ming personally performed. To avoid any accident, the director first asked a double to try it and show Lai Ming, then he added mattresses below. Lai Ming then carefully went to the film company built platform to check out the positions. The crew helped him during the climb. Finally Lai Ming completed the scene in one take. Due to the recent heat, when Lai Ming was not in a scene, he removed his jacket and wiped away his sweat with a towel. He was also very nervous about his performance as he frequently studied with the director as concentrated on reading the script. He was very professional.
