Charmaine Sheh and Hacken Lee's new movie, "Lady Iron Chef" 《美女食神》will open at theaters in Hong Kong next week. In the movie, Hacken and Charmaine have an interesting romance.
In one of the scenes, Hacken's character, an heir to a large food corporation, was kidnapped by gangsters. Hacken managed to run away, but accidentally fell off the roof. His pants were shredded by the window frame. Charmaine's character reached out and saved Hacken, but pulled off his pants, revealing his underwear in the process!
Charmaine was able to save Hacken and thus a complex, yet romantic relationship ignited between the two.
Hacken insisted doing the stunt himself while filming this scene. "Although I had wires strapped around my waist, my heart beat very quickly when I glanced at the street level below! Luckily the scene was completed after 2 takes! To prevent accidental exposure, I wore 5 pairs of underpants for this scene!"
Charmaine praised Hacken for his courage and professionalism. Charmaine also teased Hacken and said that the boxers he wore for the scene were very masculine. Hacken rebutted and said that his boxers were probably more "tasteful" than the instant noodles Charmaine cooked in the movie.
Charmaine and Hacken have known each other for years, but "Lady Iron Chef" was their first movie together. If the movie does well at the box office, Charmaine and Hacken will be treating the cast and crew to a large feast.
