Seven Bruce Lee fans got the treat of their lives when they won a dim sum meal with the martial arts legend's older sister, Phoebe Lee. The auction winners - who will dine at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile - came from the world over, including Norway, Britain and, of course, Hong Kong.

Two generous bidders received some rare memorabilia from Phoebe Lee. One was local fan Rickael Cheung Ming-tak, who got a Bruce Lee poster and Game of Death press kit. Raul Esparza III from San Francisco got a laser disc version of The Way of the Dragon. Both of them were grinning from ear to ear.

Korean super 'spy' caught by fans

South Korean actor Kim Soo-hyun was in town this week for the premiere of his new film Secretly, Greatly.

The multi-award-winning actor and record setter - with 17 simultaneous product endorsements - was almost blown away by the wind, rain and screams of adulation from his legion of fans.

Fans braved the weather to pack an open-air deck on the 16th floor of The One mall in Tsim Sha Tsui to see the star, who plays a North Korean spy in the movie. It proved to be worth the effort, with Kim joining fans for a group photo before heading off to the premiere.

And that's a rap

Hip hop producer Dr Dre was in town to promote his Beats headphones on Wednesday.

At an event in Central's HMV store, Dre, along with rapper Kendrick Lamar and Beats Electronics executive Luke Wood, thanked fans for their support over the years. Surprisingly, it was revealed during the question-and-answer session that the trio had attended a concert by Eason Chan Yik-shun the previous night, and that Dre might be looking for Asian talent to collaborate with in the future.

After the event, a few lucky fans who had won an Instagram competition got to meet Dre privately for photos, before he and Lamar departed for Volar nightclub, where Lamar performed. A dozen other lucky fans won T-shirts, while others won a pair of expensive Beats headphones.
