Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and Gao Yuanyuan has an intimate scene in the movie, But Always.
According to an article in Hktopten, the director even prepared red wine to help Gao Yuanyuan get into character.
Tse Ting Fung got a darker tan and worked out beforehand. They all did so in order to add romance to the atmosphere and make the visuals even prettier.
Ting Fung worked out over 20 days and lost 15 pounds just for this scene.
He even got a darker tan for an even better effect.
Ting Fung said, "We had to shoot this scene in our second week, the schedule was more intense. As the weight loss was very rapid, it was not too healthy. At the time the team was not familiar with each other yet, everyone was a little embarrassed."
Gao Yunyuan was just as nervous, she even forgot her lines.
She said, "Because everyone knew that this scene was very important, they all became very serious. No one was talking at the start, which made me very tense. Before the shoot the director was afraid that I would be too tense and brought red wine over. He said to have a little if you didn't feel well. In the end I didn't have any and the shoot still went smoothly."
