Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi two days ago appeared at the Busan Film Festival opening ceremony with her DANGEROUS LIAISONS during Hur Jin-Ho. Zhang Ziyi and Jang Dong-Gun yesterday afternoon finally arrived in time for the press conference and premiere. Pak Chi stressed that she and Zhang Ziyi were not at odds. Zhang Ziyi was even curiously lively, full of expressions and used her iPhone to take photos on the media as she successfully stole the spotlight.
DANGEROUS LIAISONS was the only Chinese film selected for this year's Gala Master segment. With its strong cast and crew, it became the film festival focus. However, two nights ago at the opening ceremony, only Cheung Pak Chi appeared with the director and the producer to ignite rumors of her dispute with Zhang Ziyi anew.
Yesterday at the press conference, the leads finally appeared together. Cheung Pak Chi and Zhang Ziyi who just arrived in Busan around 6AM first greeted the media in Korean. Zhang Ziyi was lively and full of expressions. She even used her iPhone to take photos of the media. Cheung Pak Chi was asked whether she saw Zhang Ziyi as competition. She stressed, "When I was 18 I already worked with Zhang Ziyi on THE LEGEND OF ZU (SHOOK SAN JUEN). Working together again after 12 years we are very happy. During the shoot we got along harmoniously."
She also said that she and Jang Dong-Gun worked together 8 years ago on THE PROMISE (MO GIK) and thought that he remained professional. The only change was "I am already a mother and Jang Dong-Gun is also a father. He has become much more mature, a mature charm of a father flows through his eyes. In addition his Chinese is amazing." Zhang Ziyi agreed and even said that he would have no problem working in the Mainland.
Jang Dong-Gun said that when he took DANGEROUS he wanted to find a breakthrough. "I have hoped to able to walk out the previous image in the hearts of viewers. By chance I ran into this film at this time, it truly was great." Between Cheung Pak Chi's exotic character and Zhang Ziyi's gentle character, which was his goddess? Jang Dong-Gun said, "That's very hard to choose, both personalities are so extreme. The best is peaceful yet exotic and elegant." Reporters joked that he obviously was referring to his wife Ko So-Young.
Meanwhile, Zhang Ziyi said that she like her character loved to make dumplings for her lover and like her character as long as he was happy she would feel happy too.
