Below is a clip of one of the most splendid scenes with Cherie Chung (鍾楚紅) ever!
It's from Patrick Tam (譚家明)'s movie 'Cherie' (雪兒) made in 1984.
The actor with whom she is paired in this scene is Tony Leung Ka-fai (梁家輝).
No, this scene is probably not entirely suitable for work.

Youthful chemistry

If that made you view the panty paradigm from a whole new angle, you really ought to see her in the 1987 Puma Jeans commercial.

She is still the same as she was then. Quite adorable, utterly charming. Part of it is the way she talks and how she behaves - it's a personality thing.

Cherie Chung, born February 16, 1960, has made over fifty movies in a career that would have been much longer had she not decided to quit the industry in 1991.
In the clip above, you can see precisely what made her a stellar bomb to every romance deprived young man in a Cantonese movie theatre. What you do NOT see is the vulnerability that gave each role a luster and made her memorable, long after she stopped acting.

Tony Leung Ka-fai (b. February 1, 1958), who started making moves in 1983, has made over a hundred movies. He was memorable in 'Prison of Fire' with Chow Yun-fat, among many other movies.
He is hard to type-cast, as he has played the gamut of roles. His most recent movie, as of this writing, is a typical happy comedy made for the Holiday season (that being Chinese New Year).
Sheer dynamite in a tuxedo.

Maybe it's all the gangster and swordsman type roles I am used to seeing him in, but Tony Leung Ka-fai looks kinda goofy in glasses, and a bit like Daniel Radcliffe.
