Peter Ho and Janine Chang reunite (again!) for new Taiwan movie A Moment Forever

I am squealing with delight right now!!! Today, a press conference was held for new movie “A Moment Forever” (只要一分鐘 / Zhi Yao Yi Fen Zhong / literal translation: Only need a minute) where the leads are Peter Ho, Janine Chang and Sphinx Ting!! The director will be Wei Ling Chen – whose previous works include “Autumn’s Concerto”, “Year of the Rain” and “Material Queen”! (I saw the English name “A Moment Forever” from the producer’s name tag so I hope it is correct!) 😉

 “A Moment Forever” had two years of preparation and will be the first Japanese/Taiwan collaboration to explore the theme of pets. The movie will also star a cute golden retriever Ke Le. Based on a Japanese novel, it talks about a fashion magazine editor (Janine Chang) who unexpectedly adopts a dog on the brink of being euthanised. Peter will portray a ‘house husband’-type character where he cooks everyday for his girlfriend. There will also be a love triangle between Peter, Janine and Sphinx’s characters.

During the press conference, Peter and Janine were so adorable! The weather was very hot so everyone was sweating. After Janine wiped her sweat with a tissue, (can’t let it ruin her makeup now!) a bit of tissue got stuck on her chin and Peter sweetly helped to take it off. When the host joked that they’re acting like an old couple, Janine openly admits – “Yeah, we’re like an old (long time) couple now!”

To prepare for the film, Peter and Janine had to become familiar with working with animals. So they started training a month beforehand to develop rapport with the dogs. Unfortunately they are both allergic to dog hairs so it was a tough challenge! Peter had an allergic reaction where he could not open his eyes as they were swollen. His nose was also running. For Janine, she would get rashes and her skin will be very itchy. So they both took different antihistamine medications and swapped tips on which ones are better.

 

Even though Peter had to endure allergic reactions he was still willing to film because finally, he doesn’t need to show off his body. “I’ve been in the entertainment industry for so long, finally someone is forbidding me to take off my clothes. I’m so relieved!” He hopes the audience will focus less on his body and more on his face, otherwise people will forget what he looks like!

“A Moment Forever” is expected to complete filming in August. Hopefully it will be released in Taiwan and Japan in March next year.
