From Friend to Boss, Louis Koo Works Closely with Jessica Hsuan
Throughout the 1990 and early 2000 era, Jessica Hsuan and Louis Koo established themselves as one of television’s most adored pairing. Although Louis and Jessica took their careers in separate directions in the past decade, the pair continued to maintain their friendship. Recently, Jessica entrusted her career to Louis and signed under his company, One Cool Film Productions. Louis also announced the company’s plan to film a movie version of the time-traveling classic, A Step into the Past <尋秦記>, in which he and Jessica will reunite on-screen, much to the delight of fans.
Working closely together again, Jessica and Louis recently attended a jewelry event. Having been friends for more than 20 years, Jessica expressed her full confidence in Louis’ work arrangements for her and stressed that the change in roles from friends to employer has not changed their dynamic. “Since Louis is the company’s boss, I don’t have to worry about collaboration opportunities. Usually, when he arranges work for me, I would naturally just go and do it because his team is very professional. In terms of work, the company has organized my work very well. Because of that, I don’t have to worry about what kind of events they are asking me to attend.”
In addition to collaborating on A Step into the Past, Louis and Jessica will also be filming another movie together. Jessica shared, “Our first film is Crime Scene <犯罪現場>. Filming will begin soon. My scenes with Louis will start filming around August. The other movie is Back to the Past, the film adaptation of A Step Into the Past. This is a big production and will begin film possibly around October or November. I am excited and anticipated for every new project, but A Step into the Past is different. The television version ultimately is a classic.” Jessica will be resuming her role as the impulsive and spoiled Wu Ting Fong (烏廷芳).
