After finishing Feng Xiaogang's Aftershock/Tangshang Earthquake last month, Zhang Jingchu's next film will be the comedy Flirting Scholar 2 to be directed by Lee Lik-Chi and co-starring Huang Xiaoming.

Okay, so that's what I saw on TV tonight.

Walking back to the hotel and me and another guy stopped and watched Andy Lau training on some TV segment on a storefront TV. Wasn't sure what it was for until now.

I am determined to at least see one celebrity in my next 18 days in Hong Kong!

What's filming at the moment?
