Charlene Choi (Ah Sa) released her new Cantonese album "Blooming" on June 20. Previously, Ah Sa filmed 4 music videos in one day; the two other songs are "Mistaken" and "Intelligent Fool". Remembering that Twins filmed over 10 music videos in one day for their nursery song album, Ah Sa expressed that filming 4 music videos in one day was a piece of cake.
The music video for "To Be Kind to Women" depicts Ah Sa who is willing to be a slave and servant for her boyfriend. Even though she suffers, she still hopes to one day move him emotionally and ultimately receive his love, protection and respect. To reinforce the visual effect, director Heiward Mak found a professional to tie knots around Ah Sa's neck and wrists, making Ah Sa who was dressed in a black lace dress have even more of an S&M feeling. Anjo, the male lead actor, wore a full black cloak and forced Ah Sa into servitude in a Grim Reaper manner. In the music video, the male lead occasionally pulled violently the rope around Ah Sa's neck, causing Ah Sa wearing high heels to follow along. Finally after the hard times are over, the good times begin and Ah Sa is crowned, undergoing a transformation and turning into a queen who is doted upon.
When asked whether the rope tied around her neck was painful, Ah Sa replied, "It was okay! Did it appear painful because I portrayed it well?" After saying this, she immediately laughed aloud. "It was more inconvenient than uncomfortable, because I was tied for quite a while!"
Another song "Mist" describes that love is like mist and often makes it difficult for people to see clearly. When the mist gradually disperses, things appear clearly, and it is in this way that weak relationships fade away. For the music video, director Heiward Mak got an artist to draw an enormous sketch of Ah Sa. The artist sees Ah Sa appear among the mist and wants to use a paint brush to make this moment last. Unfortunately, when the mist fades away, all that is left is his own drawing of Ah Sa. In the music video, Ah Sa continuously strikes poses on a bed, making even female director Heiward Mak praise Ah Sa for being very sexy. Ah Sa immediately responded, "Very sexy? In my mind, I was thinking of
