Source: TVB News WorldWilliam Chan Wai Ting in the new film TRIAD (JAT JIK) asked Deep Ng Ho Hong to hit him for real and got bruises all over, scaring even his own mother.In the film William played a daring Wise Guy who in order to rise makes enemy in his own turf, finally he crosses Ng Ho Hong and is brutally beaten. During the shoot, William for realism asked the Muay Thai trained Deep not to hold back. Finally for different angles William finally took a beating from Deep and a group of thugs for almost two hours, the hits were so loud that they could be recorded live. Because William at the time was topless and only wore boxers, he could not wear any protective pads. Thus after work he realized that he had bruises all over. The right side of his face was exaggeratedly swollen and affected the production. The director could only shoot the left side of his face for the sake of continuity. William joked later, "I have known Deep for so long but I didn't know that he fought so well. Originally I thought real hitting would be more realistic, I didn't expect to really get hurt. "The right side of my face was so swollen that the director thought it was special effect make up. He said it was too fake and told me not to use such an exaggerated make up."
