Yumiko Gives Ken His First Onscreen Kiss

The cast of Love is Elsewhere <愛情萬歲>, including Yumiko Cheng (鄭希怡), Ken Hung (洪卓立), Sherman Chung (鍾舒漫), Pakho Chow (周柏豪) and Jason Chan (陳栢宇) attended the movie's premiere last night at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

All casts members were formally dressed, with Yumiko stealing the spotlight with her backless number.

Yumiko revealed that, in the movie, she gives Ken his first onscreen kiss.

When Yumiko was asked whether or not she would in future take up a role similar to that of Tang Wei (湯唯)’s in Lust, Caution <色,戒>, Yumiko admitted that it would take a lot of courage to act such intimate scenes. She added that she would have to trust the script and director 100 percent. She concluded that she wants first to improve her acting skills.

Ken attended the event with his family and, though were to witness his first onscreen kiss, he said that he did not feel at all awkward.

He even joked that his brother came just to see how he performed with his kiss.

When Ken was asked whether or not he would ever accept a high-profile bed scene like Tony Leung (梁朝偉)’s in Lust Caution, Ken responded that, as long as his company felt it was suitable for him, then he would not object.

The actor was then asked if he was satisfied with his body and comfortable showing it onscreen. Ken revealed that he is currently working out to prepare for the release of his next album, and that the audience will soon witness his efforts.

Love is Elsewhere was directed by Vincent Chui (崔允信).
