Francis Ng arrived in court with his lawyer for a hearing and pled not guilty to the assault charges in the New Year's Day bakery incident.

Young and Dangerous star Francis Ng Chun-yu has denied hitting a man and tearing his ear during a scuffle at a bakery.
Ng, 48, whose real name is Francis Ng Chi-keung, pleaded not guilty at Kowloon City Magistrates' Court to wounding Ming Chi- hong at Ceres Boulangerie et Patisserie in Fuk Lo Tsun Road, Kowloon City, on January 1.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of three years in jail.
Principal Magistrate Andrew Ma Ho-cheung adjourned the case until April 1, and released Ng on HK$ 5,000 bail.
There will be five prosecution witnesses, with a surveillance tape also offered as evidence. The court was told Ng and his wife allegedly argued with another couple at the bakery.
Ng, whose career took off in the 1996 triad tale, has since won the HK Film Critics Society best actor award three times.

RE: Francis Ng goes to court. Wow, that's a lot of papparazi for a courtroom visit. They sure let the cameras get right up in their faces.

I like how they found Francis Ng some high school teacher clothes to wear, too, especially the argyle sweater vest.

So Beauty on Duty opens 1 April. I wonder what the chances are that it will still be in theaters when I get there on April 17? Maybe since the Twins concerts will get a lot of press.

I was shocked at Christmas how quickly things left theaters to make room for Avatar and Twilight 2.

As much as I like Zhang Jingchu, I can't imagine her doing comedy.

Bet that settlement is gonna cost him a pretty penny.

True, but I'm guessing that perhaps the servant girl she plays is a bit of a simpleton. Like Wang Baoqiang (World Without Thieves, Blind Shaft, et al), I hope she breaks away from that typecasting. (I still haven't seen Night and Fog yet.)

I got Night and Fog and Red River at HMV in HK and I'm going to watch them as soon as I knock the rest of the Shaw titles I purchased.

Come to think of it, Gong Li was not exactly super funny in Flirting Scholar or God of Gamblers 3: Back to Shanghai, right? Pretty but not there to be the funny one.
