Popular Hong Kong Director Patrick Kong’s (葉念琛) new romantic comedy, Natural Born Lovers <天生愛情狂> was in the midst of filming. The movie featured Chilam Cheung (張智霖), Annie Liu (劉心悠), Anna Kay (葉熙祺) Mandy Wong (黃智雯), Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), and Mandy Lieu. Known for his refreshing take on modern love, Patrick Kong will explore the obsessive and crazy side of love in his new film.
Portraying a rich and handsome heir in Natural Born Lovers, Chilam Cheung was madly pursued by both Annie Liu and Anna Kay. Annie fell in love with Chilam upon first sight. Chilam aroused the most illogical, crazy, and compulsive feelings in Annie, who vowed to win his heart under all means! Annie will portray a sexually open nurse in the film, which pushed her own personal boundaries.
While Natural Born Lovers will contain Patrick Kong’s trademark observational humor regarding modern love relationships, the director hoped to bring a positive message to the audience. Director Kong said, “I hope the film will bring refreshing surprises, but at the same time relay the message that a person needs to strive for one’s own happiness!”
Patrick Kong’s films were also highly popular with the Hong Kong audience due to his scintillating material. The director who created Marriage With a Liar <婚前試愛> starring Chrissie Chau (周秀娜) and Him Law (羅仲謙) was known for casting beautiful people in his sexy movies. Expect no less in Natural Born Lovers. Earlier, Chilam indicated that he will share kissing and intimate scenes with Annie Liu in the film, fortunately with his wife, Anita Yuen’s ( 袁詠儀) understanding.
Despite turning 40-years-old, Chilam was very popular among the female cast. Earlier, Annie Liu praised Chilam, “He has four good traits: he is a good husband, father, actor, and singer!”
Oscar Leung’s Comeback Film
With their break out roles in TVB drama, L’Escargot <缺宅男女>, Mandy Wong and Oscar Leung’s recognition levels increased recently, attracting the attention of Patrick Kong who decided to cast the pair in Natural Born Lovers. Although starting his acting career in films, Oscar experienced various setbacks in his career before finding recent success in TVB. Natural Born Lovers will mark his return to the big screen, in which Oscar will portray a triad member who was afraid of his wife, Mandy Wong, whose spitfire character was reminiscent of her role in L’Escargot. Mandy Lieu will have a cameo role as Chilam’s younger sister.
Chilam has known Oscar for over a decade; the pair was very good friends due to their interest in sports. When Oscar indicated that he lacked the money to get married earlier, Chilam was one amongst many of Oscar friends to offer to pay for the wedding banquet. However, Oscar refused on the grounds that he wished to earn his own money.
At the shooting for Natural Born Lovers yesterday, Oscar wore a black jacket without a shirt inside. Oscar may have intentionally trained his body for the role. His muscular 37-inch chest attracted the attention of costars, Mandy Wong and Mandy Lieu, who could not resist from touching it! Mandy even said, “He purposely trained his chest; it’s even bigger than mine!”
Jayne: The premise of Patrick Kong’s movies always sound so tempting on paper.
