Okay, so it’s past Christmas, but since it’s still the holidays (Happy New Year’s Eve/ New Year’s, depending on your location!), here’s a cute set of posters and a few stills from comedy director Raymond Wong’s latest holiday flick, An Inspector Calls 神探驾到. The film stars Louis Koo, Zhang Han, Donnie Yen, Eric Tsang, Karena Ng, Chrissie Chau, and Liu Yan.
JULY 2, 2012 | POSTED IN HONG KONG, TAGGED LOUIS KOO
Louis Koo saving the world, one child at a time.
I don’t usually post stuff on Hong Kong stars since they’re fairly well-covered, but I couldn’t let this one go, especially since Hong Kong stars get more gossip than love translated.
News just came out that Louis Koo has silently donated to build 49 schools in addition to over 20 health center and 50 wells over the past three years After the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, the actor set up a foundation focused on helping kids in remote areas. The foundation not only donates to build, but also sends people to monitor the status of the facilities to insure the safety of the construction. This large number was not widely published until netizens compiled a list of all the schools that are named after him.
When Apple Daily contacted him to ask for his motivation for the donations, he told them that “If we can help people, why not? As long as I can, I’ll continue to help. I don’t think it’s much to talk about. ”
Xu Jinglei and Daniel Wu, who have worked together before in the movie Shinjuku Incident teamed up for a magazine (unnamed) shoot. I was going to put this in the News Roundup, but since both have so much going on professionally, it was a nice chance to talk about their upcoming projects. Sorry for such a lame post title.
Daniel Wu sums up Xu Jinglei: “She’s like a detective story…the more you get to know her, the more interesting she becomes”. Which could be true and not just random flattery. She seems sort of bland in interviews to me, but her work is so interesting. She’s gotten great leading roles as an actress, directed award-winning movies, had the #1 most read blog in the world, and started an e-Magazine for working women. So what is she doing next that combines her lauded talents and her girl power attitude? You’ll never guess…
The eligible films are those where two of the following occur: the director is a Hong Kong resident, at least one film company is registered in Hong Kong, and at least six persons of the production crew are Hong Kong residents.
And the winners are…
I just read about Louis Koo, who after going to Sichuan in July to help with Earthquake relief went back to Hong Kong and decided to establish the Louis Koo Charitable Foundation to help society in need. This charity finally got the license yesterday. He’s not the only one who’s been doing things lately. Huang Xiaoming, Vicky Zhaowei, Sun Li, Jet Li, power couple Li Yapeng and Faye Wong all have been recently. I think part of growing, growing to be an accountable society requires things like this.
