Yoyo Mung on Filming “Flying Tiger 2”
Slowing down her workload in recent years, Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) expressed that the filming process has changed a lot from her experience with TVB seven years ago. Starring in Shaw Brothers’ web drama, Flying Tiger 2 <飛虎之雷霆極戰>, Yoyo said, “The feeling is very different as I am filming again. The filming method has changed so much. There are more cameras used, and we don’t need to use real settings or background scenes. Getting a role now requires you to take initiative. If you want to try out for a role, you go and audition for it and there’s no longer a need to have someone find jobs for you.”
Reflecting on working with her romantic co-star Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Yoyo shared, “A lot of the scenes are very emotional. I got very tired from filming crying scenes. Michael took care of me very well. I remember when we were filming a running scene on the wooden planks of a beach, my high heels kept getting stuck on the gaps of the floor boards. Michael immediately thought up of a solution by using camera angles, where he would hold my hand as we ran without it looking like so on film. He was extremely professional.”
Known for her love of outdoors and physical activity, Yoyo would often take advantage of breaks in between filming to stretch. Exercise is a very important aspect of her and husband Ekin Cheng’s (鄭伊健) lifestyle. She shared, “Ekin and I are both very active people. After years of filming, we’ve sustained injuries that resulted in lots of aches and pains unknowingly. Since we were staying home more often due to the pandemic, we would often stretch and exercise at home.”
