The Yang family made a whirlwind stop in Taipei, Taiwan for a Saving General Yang <忠烈楊家將> press conference and photo call. “General Yang” Adam Cheng (鄭少秋), “Dalang” Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健), “Erlang” Yu Bo (于波), “Sanlang” Vic Chou (周渝民), and “Liulang” Wu Chun (吳尊) stood together arm in arm while they discussed about their filming experiences in the $311 million HKD war film.
Portraying General Yang, the father of seven warrior sons, Adam Cheng flashed a charismatic and commanding smile to the press. Despite being 66 years old, Adam’s youthful vigor has not faltered in the slightest. Regarding his secret of keeping young and healthy, Adam said, “Exercise a lot! After that, you need to forever believe in yourself that you are handsome!”
Although Vic Chou is stepping into his thirteenth year in the entertainment industry, Saving General Yang is the Taiwanese actor’s first period film. Portraying Sanlang, General Yang’s third son, Vic has to learn horseback riding and archery, which is Sanlang’s best skill.
“I have never ridden a horse before. When I watched my instructor ride his horse for the first time, horseback riding looked really simple, so I decided to imitate him. But his horse and my horse had different rhythm, so I ended up injuring my butt!”
Ekin Cheng, who married his girlfriend of 7 years, Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧), last month in Japan, was asked if he is enjoying his life as a married man so far. Ekin smiled, “Nothing really changed [after our marriage]. Thank you all for your concerns! However, that is about my [private] life. All I can say is that I am very happy right now.” Asked if the couple is planning to have children in the future, Ekin immediately said, “Never thought about it.”
Produced by Raymond Wong (黃百鳴) and his studio, Pegasus Motion Pictures, Saving General Yang is directed by Fearless <霍元甲> director, Ronny Yu (于仁泰). The war epic will be released worldwide on April 4, 2013.
