Peter Chan, Jimmy Wang Yu

Peter Chan visited Jimmy Wang Yu in Taiwan while doing publicity for Wu Xia. The director brought fruit and chicken and felt a little more at ease after seeing Wang Yu in person. Wang Yu is rehabilitating after suffering a stroke last month. Besides watching his diet and giving up wine, Wang Yu has been exercising his left arm and walking the stairs at home.

He promised director Chan that he would attend the Taiwan and  Hong Kong premieres on July 20 and July 26.
