“Saving General Yang” Cast Promotes in Taiwan

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.

  1. Asked if the couple is planning to have children in the future, Ekin immediately said, “Never thought about it.”

    How many times they must confirm that? And they are still asked.

    1. It is ok to ask but not too many times. Ekin did say before that he was not going to get married but he is married now. He may change his mind about having kids soon, who knows? But yea, it is annoying to keep on asking…

  2. Watching the press event, I was struck by how Vic Chou appears to still lack confidence before a big crowd. His mannerisms indicated he was nervous, but he ended up responding the most to the press.

    1. I remember Madonna performing at the Oscars for evita and she was very nervous as well. You can’t expect the actors to be all confident, more so in front of many seniors in the industry I suppose. Or maybe he didn’t take any meds or whatever that day. Could be!

      1. No no no, just saying. I don’t think he is taking meds. He looks young and healthy.

      2. Vic Chou used to have depression. That’s the reason he was exempted from military service. I wonder if he’s still on medication.

      3. Kidd,
        Depression tends to creep back into one’s life in some ways over time. I hope Vic is better now.

      4. zaizai has always been a shy guy. He’s the perfect choice for the role of Hua Ze Lei in MG!

    2. That’s just how Vic is and yea, depression can come and go. Glad that he is better now…

    3. Once you have depression, you will need the medication for life. And like Jayne and HTS have pointed out, a relapse is possible every now and then but of course, with intervals in between.

  3. Is it really produced by Raymond Wong (Wong Ho Yin)? Or Raymond Wong (Wong Bak Ming)? I don’t think it’s Raymond Wong Ho Yin since all I know is that he’s an actor. I haven’t heard that he owns a company and produce films.

      1. Jayne, did you get the chinese name wrong?

        黃浩然 as opposed to 黃百鳴

  4. Everyone dressed nice except Ekin. Ekin shouldn’t wear that graphic shirt underneath his vest.

    1. the one in red didn’t look presentable enough, adam’s the best dresser and he carried himself very well too, took care of the director

    1. He has been AWOL for a few weeks already LOL. Still on a vacation, i assume.

    2. LF returned this morning from Milan, having been to Japan twice previously this past month with Karena. LF will have an autograph session on Sunday (3/3).
      Glad he has some time off!

  5. They should have used an interpreter for Ronny Yu and Adam Cheng. One could barely make out what they were trying to say, especially Yu. Was he trying to speak Canto fused with some Mando phrases?

    1. Maybe Ronny but IMHO, Adam spoke with almost perfect Mandarin,akin to those of Mainland people’s. I mean Adam doesn’t have the canto + mando accent like Ekin’s.

  6. Adam Cheng looks thinner every time I see him in clips. Pretty soon he is going to look like a walking skeleton. Someone should tell him to start eating. That would also go a long way in making him look even younger.
    He still doesn’t look 66, but it is creeping up on him faster and faster.

    I still can’t wait to see this. 🙁 Have to wait sooo long. It’s like the only movie I have been waiting for for the last 2 years.

  7. Zaizai and wu chun debute in Taiwan, so it is nice to see them back now. I wonder what Wu chun talk about.

    Zaizai haven’t age a single bit in 10 years, I love the concert of JVKV
