Kate Tsui Makes Appearance in Taiwanese Film, “Achoo”

After its delayed release by six years, Taiwanese film Achoo <打噴嚏> will finally open on July 15, 2020. Originally scheduled for release in 2014, the film was pushed back because of lead star Kai Ko‘s (柯震東) drug scandal. The long wait held a surprise for viewers, as now-retired actress Kate Tsui (徐子珊), makes an appearance in the movie as Kai Ko’s manager.

On July 5, Achoo premiered at the Taipei Film Festival, which was attended by its cast, director Kevin Ko (柯孟融), and original author and screenplay writer Giddens Ko (柯景騰). Thrilled to see his story appear on the big screen, Giddens cried half way through the premiere. He said, “I want to thank Kai’s father, as well as producer Angie Chai (柴智屏) for making this all happen.”

Kai is equally happy to see Achoo finally arrive in movie theaters. Thanking the 600 fans who attended the event to show their support, Kai expressed, “These past few years have been very tiring, but I’ll continue to try my best and become more courageous.” Erupting in applause, the audience was glad to see Kai back in the limelight after the multiple delays Achoo faced. The movie could not be shown in China after Kai was arrested for drug use in 2014, and also received further setbacks due to COVID-19 this year.

Kai’s Impression on Ariel Lin and Kate Tsui

Achoo centers around the maturing love story between two childhood friends, portrayed by Kai Ko and Ariel Lin (林依晨). Filming with Ariel surprised Kai, who initially thought the actress has a quiet personality, but it turned out she was very energetic on the set.

Also appearing in the movie as Kai’s manager is Kate Tsui, who retired from the entertainment industry last year in lieu of furthering her studies in psychology. Due to her feisty character and incredible fight moves in Achoo, Kate was nicknamed “Unbeatable Kate” by netizens. Kai admitted that he thought Kate had a lot of character and strong stage presence when they were filming together.

  1. i just realize that kate tsui looks very good w/ heavy make up. she’s less stunning in shows where she has light make up on though its the same feature.

    1. @m0m0 I always thought that Kate had a movie face instead of a TV face. Once you see her you just know it’s Kate because her features are so outstanding.

      1. @bubbles23 That was the consensus among the top executives at TVB. Fong Yat Wah had a similar comment to yours and Eric Tsang wanted to sign Kate after her contracted ended at TVB.

        Kate would’ve fared well in the movie industry. Her acting was, in my opinion, the best out of her generation of fadans. She had versatility. Tavia was a close second though she couldn’t handle her evil performance in Beyond The Realm.

      2. @hazel Kate has a lot of screen presence that’s rather rare in today’s industry. Tvb audience just didn’t appreciate her though and now she’s goneee. Tavia has a lot of depth but I think she’s hit a wall in finding new ways of acting. Oh well both won’t have new work any time soon.

        Yes Kate had a lot of potential to fare pretty well as an actress but sadly she has retired now. But I’m glad she is following her true passion and doing something else that she is truly passionate about. Not everyone wants to stay in the limelight forever.
