    Li Gen is, IMHO, a beneficiary of the one-child policy whereby the parents, especially those in positions of power, will do anything within their means to give their children a head start in life. Personally I think it is better off for him to study hard when there is still time to win a place in Bei Da or Tsinghua.

    I don't see WL and BCL's name on the poster. Are they just like technical consultants? They should invite WL to be the main actress.

    They missed out a name of one of the actors on the English translation.

    Guess we won't see too much of Wang Lin then. A pity.

    They did put 5 names on the English translation. Just forgot to put Yee-Kin's last name. Should be

    Ronald Cheng, Yee-kin Cheng, .......


    But who want to see more of WL in the movie than these other actors/actresses. I do.

    LOL. I thought it was Ronald Cheng Yee Kin as one persons full name. Sometimes names are referred to like that in HK.

    "Cheng" was doing double duty for "Ronald Cheng" and "Cheng Yee-Kin". Maybe the spell checker eliminated one of the Chengs on its own. Funny how both English and Chinese name orders are used simultaneously for English names and Chinese names, respectively.

    Both WL and BCL will be seen in the movie but not in any role of note. Josie Ho bankrolls the movies. So you know who will be the female lead.

    Josie Ho supposedly came second in WD in Ontario (universities?) competition and the director claims being on the school team when he was 13. There is no lack of badminton knowledge on set.

    Here's a nice swing illustration from the movie set. Not sure whether it is part of the movie or a badminton training guide for the actors:

    Nice one. Fourteen players take turns to serve the shuttle to Wang Lin who then jump-smashes it with all her might to get the shuttlecock pierced through the watermelon-shaped football, a feat which she succeeded on her 5th try. Twice it grazed the watermelon, and twice it hit and bounced off. It took the stunned audience a while to realize what happened and burst into resounding applause.

    Originally it was decided that if she failed to do so after 14 attempts, the organizer would have to use a knife to cut open the watermelon. Actually before the challenge itself, Wang Lin had already rehearsed twice unsuccessfully just to get the feel of it as that was the first time she's attempting such an act. Previously, there was an online badminton video showing such a feat but it was attempted on a whole watermelon, not one carved in the shape of a football which Wang Lin felt added to the difficulty because an uncarved watermelon with the emergence of a small gap would render it easier to split open.

    This gimmick was part of a promotional activity to kickoff the start of a nationwide grassroots badminton championship called "Yu Lin Zheng Ba" (loosely translated as Badminton Hegemony) for the Southeast Division Finals held on 5th June at Hangzhou West Lake Stadium. Later , many amateur players took turns to try their hands at it but none succeeded to embed the shuttle in the watermelon until it's time to call it a day.
