How did you come up with this idea (making movie)? Did you find any difficulties when creating your music?

A long time ago, I really wanted to make a movie before I became a singer. Actually I didn’t want to be a singer. At the first beginning, I went to the competition for prize, after won, later on, movie was out. I think making movie can be a platform for me to make better music.

Why did you choose first love theme as your first movie?

I want to film about my memories, stories in town, regrets of love, something about beauty, I am not comfortable with horror movies and kongfu movies. I have more faith in romantic movies. As “goodbye scene” in the movie is about the memory of my first love- my girlfriend picked me up after school.

Ice Kacang is your debut, are you happy with the result?

I would say pretty surprising for me. I learned a lot of unexpected things from my team, despite many imperfections.

Leehom wong also directs, writes and acts like you, is this a trend in the entertainment industry?

It’s just a coincidence. I wrote this script about seven years ago. I didn’t follow others. It’s just the idea in my head ages ago.

I thought you will meet each other when you grow up. but the ending is a bit sad.

Sometimes if everyone knows the ending there would be no fun and no surprise.

I didn’t want them to be together from the very beginning when I started to write the script, it must be a sad ending.
