Category III Film “The Gigolo” Tops Hong Kong Box Office
Wong Jing (王晶) has proved again that he understands what it takes to make a blockbuster Category III movie. His latest sensual offer, The Gigolo <鴨王>, is currently the number one film at the Hong Kong box office. In its first four days of release, it has already earned $3 million HKD.
Dominic Ho (何浩文) stars as a gigolo eager to please his clients, even willing to serve as a human sushi platter. Former Miss Hong Kong participant Candy Yuen (袁嘉敏) makes her first onscreen nude appearance. Jeana Ho (何佩瑜), Hazel Tong (唐紫睿), and Fan Ling (樊玲) round up the supporting cast.
Prior to the film’s release, video clips and stills of Candy Yuen’s nude scenes in The Gigolo were leaked on the Internet. With the film gaining greater publicity, viewers flocked to theaters to see the full-length feature.
Director Au Cheuk Man (區焯文) and the cast held multiple events around Hong Kong to thank fans for their support of the film. Regarding the phenomenal performance of a Category III film during this time of year, Dominic said he is anticipating the moment when the film reaches the $10 million HKD mark. “For a Category III film to do so well in the box office, it definitely makes people want to jump for joy. In terms of how to thank the fans – I want to take part in doing a body sushi event with the director and Jeana!”
Jeana Will Kiss Candy to Kill Rumors
While the cast appeared to be friendly with each other in front of the camera, Candy and Jeana allegedly did not get along since the beginning of the production. Although Candy admitted to have zero interaction with Jeana outside of filming, Jeana denied they had a poor relationship. To prove that there is no bad blood between them, Jeana boldly promised, “I will kiss Candy and the rest of the female cast members!”
