Hong Kong actor Louis Koo is as hardworking on a film set as he is apparently nonchalant about fielding media interviews.

The 46-year-old bachelor, who had appeared in at least five movies in each of the last two years, is known for giving generic one-liners to reporters' questions.

His movies reportedly premiering this year include sci-fi comedy Meow and action flick Paradox.

He was in Singapore recently for the opening of Italian luxe brand Tod's boutique at Marina Bay Sands and The Straits Times had 10 minutes to speak with him.

What Chinese New Year traditions do you practise every year?
You can't bathe on the first day of Chinese New Year. But I won't wash my hair either. Neither will I clean or throw out the trash.
