Yesterday, I especially flew to Taiwan to attend the grand opening of the Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum. Following the Asian Civilizations Museum in Singapore, the National Palace (southern branch) in Taiwan is the second museum to receive my 12 Chinese Zodiacs bronze heads that have taken us many years to make. Thanks to a team of creative artists and designers for their hard work and efforts, I was finally able to donate the bronze zodiac heads to Taiwan and have them displayed in the main museum at the southern branch. I was very excited and pleased to see the serene and impressive exhibit. I truly hope that more and more people will better understand my heartfelt intentions of protecting our history and respecting our culture.

昨天從山東飛抵台灣,特地參加故宮南院的開幕典禮。這是繼新加坡亞洲文明博物館之後,第二個博物館珍藏我製作多年、捐贈的十二生肖銅頭。歷經多位美術設計師與團隊的辛勞,今天終於矗立在南院主要院區,呈現祥和與莊嚴,感到很興奮、欣慰。真希望更多人都能感受到我的初衷–保護文物、尊重文明。

Early this morning, I heard the news that my good friend, Ko Chun Hsiung, passed away…. I recently saw an interview of him at the Golden Horse Awards, and I noticed that he wasn’t well because he’d lost a lot of weight. I had never imagined that just a few days later, he passed away.

I remember during pre-production for Miracles, we were discussing who should play the boss of the Fujian Gang. Without a second thought, we immediately knew that there was no better person to play the part but him. His fluent Hokkienese was perfect for the role.

I’m currently working on the set of my new film and it’s freezing cold, but my mind is filled with flashbacks and memories of when we worked together, his friendly warm smile and hearty laughter. May you rest in peace my dear friend.

今天一早得知好友柯俊雄离开了….最近看到他是在金馬獎訪談中,因為在病中,人削瘦很多,哪知才過幾天就聽到他离开的消息。「奇蹟」籌拍時,那個福建幫老大的角色非他莫屬,他流利的閩南話在電影中一氣呵成。我現在寒冷的新片拍攝現場,脑袋里都是当年跟他在一起合作时的爽朗笑声。朋友,願你安息。
