Lately I’ve been busy flying all over the world. Firstly with Kung Fu Yoga, we started filming in Beijing, then flew to Dubai, and then back to Beijing. Next was Railroad Tigers, shooting from Dongbei in Northeast China, then across to Shandong province. Straight after the wrap for Railroad Tigers, we immediately drove back to Beijing and continued shooting for Kung Fu Yoga. After filming Kung Fu Yoga for about 10 days, I had to fly straight to London and start shooting the new film, Foreigner. We’ve been filming in London for about a week already. On Sunday the 17th, we started work at 5:00am and right after we finished at 1:00pm, I immediately rushed to the airport and flew back to Shanghai to attend the premier event for Kung Fu Panda 3. Now I have to fly back to London and continue shooting my new film!

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.

December 7, 2015

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.

25. November 2015 · Comments Off on Lifetime Achievement Award for “Mom” · Categories: Uncategorized


Several days ago, I was in Taiwan for the Golden Horse Awards Ceremony, and presented the 52nd Golden Horse Lifetime Achievement Award to an amazing lady I first called “mom” when I entered the entertainment industry, Ms. Lee Li Hua. She was the main actress in my first ever film, Liang Shan Bai Yu Zhu Ying Tai, that I starred in over 50 years ago. Afterwards, I worked with her again in the film Qin Xiang Lian, where I played her son. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been working in the film industry for over 50 years already, and I’m deeply touched that I still have the opportunity to present this award to my “God-Mother”. Words simply cannot describe the emotions that filled me. Ms. Lee Li Hua is the first Asian superstar to obtain international recognition for her work in the Asian film industry, and she will always be a goddess in our hearts.
