The Man on the Dragon
“At this moment in time, I think a film like this may inspire some Hong Kong people to look at our city from a different point of view.” Sunny majored in playwriting at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA), and his work includes the Love Undercover series. After almost 20 years in the industry, he has only received one best screenplay award nomination.
He joined the SLASH generation before many young people did — he has worked as a lecturer in playwriting at the HKAPA, love column writer and radio programme host, and published a few collection of essays.
After many twists and turns, he brought Men on the Dragon, the story of which he completed in 2004, to the silver screen. The film only reached HKD220,000 at the box office on its opening day. Now in the fifth week of its theatrical run, the film has grossed over HKD12 million at the box office. Sunny does not say he is the man on the dragon, yet he was once one of the men.
