Joey Wong Cho Yin is cool to the press in her new film promotion.

Perhaps Joey Wong Cho Yin has been estranged to the media after such a long hiatus, or perhaps she deliberately was playing it cool. After finally choosing Japan to be her base of return, on the 3rd when she met with the press, Wong Cho Yin was cooler than Best Actress Maggie Cheung Man Yuk. Without even smiling, Wong Cho Yin stayed for ten minutes without any expression then left! The Sino-Japanese collaboration Pekin Geijin Who Are You? (Beijing Yuen Yun Who Are You) starring Wong Cho Yin and Japanese actor Ju Ying Jik Yun will be released in Japan on the 20th.

To promote the movie, the film company held a press conference and a premiere in Tokyo. The reaction to press conference was not enthusiastic. There were around 10 local and 15 Taiwan and Hong Kong reporters presented. Comparing to 200 reporters turn out for the return of Akina Nakamori, it was not a major event. On the press conference, Wong Cho Yin appeared to be without emotions, nor did she directly communicated with the reporters. She was dressed in black, with heavy make up, appearing to be cold and expressionless. Wong Cho Yin said with Mandarin, "I am very glad I get to work with the Japanese actor Ju Ying Jik Yun, and very happy to working with a Japanese film company on a movie related to China."

As for her recent situation and emotional life, the extremely cool Cho Yin did not mention one word. Basically, the 20 some reporters didn't have a chance to interview the stars of the movie. Everyone only listened to the introductions by the master of ceremony. During the introductions, the master of ceremony constantly reminded the press that Wong Cho Yin's new album will soon be released in Japan.

After the press conference, Wong Cho Yin accompanied by the film company personnel attended the film's premiere.- Joey Wong Cho Yin's romance and career have great rises and falls After Wong Cho Yin entered show business with her beauty and her height, she has openly been involved with Taiwan singer Chai Chun. During the period she was rumored with Tony Leung Chiu Wai. In 93, Wong Cho Yin and Chai Chun split and Wong Cho Yin entered the marriage of wealthy businessman Lam Kin Ngak and Tse Ling Ling. In December 1993, Wong Cho Yin admitted involvement with Lam Kin Ngak. Initially she rejected his advances, but after Lam decided to divorce TseLing Ling, her relationship with Lam Kin Ngak began to become clear.

From the middle of 93 to the beginning of 95, Wong Cho Yin was almost completely detached from the film world, as she enjoyed her sweet romantic life with Lam. Lam Kin Ngak and Wong Cho Yin's relationship came to an end in May 95, in September of the same year, witnesses claimed the pair began arguing in a hotel. After the reports surfaced, Wong Cho Yin reportedly returned toTaiwan to pick up the pieces until February of last year when the Taiwan press discovered she has returned to the side of her old boyfriend Chai Chun, who will produce her record.

However her appearance at the press conference was her first public appearance in 5 years.
