“Young and Dangerous: Reloaded” Poster Criticized as Gay
The concept poster for Wong Jing’s (王晶) Young and Dangerous: Reloaded <古惑仔: 江湖新秩序> was revealed at the 17th Annual Busan International Film Festival in South Korea. The buff cast, Him Law (羅仲謙), Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), Philip Ng (伍允龍), and Dominic Ho (何浩文) appear in unbuttoned, all white outfits, showing their muscular chests. The film poster has been criticized as looking “gay” by the online community.
The 1990s classic film franchise, Young and Dangerous, was based on a popular comic series and chronicled the adventures of triads in Mongkok. Ekin Cheng’s (鄭伊健) iconic triad leader role, “Chan Ho Nam” will be portrayed by Him Law in the remake. In his casting choices, producer Wong Jing admitted that he wished to cast several musclemen to add more excitement.
Casting choices aside, the exposure of the concept poster for Young and Dangerous: Reloaded has already aroused criticism. With the male cast’s open shirts and huddling close to each other, netizens felt that the poster looked “gay”. Others complained, “Triad members do not have such large muscles! In real life, they are all spare-rib thin!”
Rather than make a realistic triad film, Wong Jing may be appealing to audience’s basic instincts. Portraying Francis Ng’s (吳鎮宇) role, “Ugly Kwan,” Sammy Shum (沈震軒) will have intense bed scenes with Category III actress, Winnie Leung (梁敏儀).
Mainland actress, Hu Ran (胡然), will portray a wealthy heiress and fall for Him Law’s character. Jacqueline Chong (莊思敏) will play a clergyman’s daughter.
