Hong Kong director Dante Lam's movie To The Fore features a slew of hot male bods and three handsome male leads in Choi Si Won, Eddie Peng and Shawn Dou.

But female viewers will be disappointed if they expect to see much of the trio's ripped abs and toned bods.

Lam, 50, says: "In my last movie, Unbeatable (2013), there was a lot of focus on the actors' figures. This time around, I don't want the attention to be on that. I want audiences to watch the cycling."

Unbeatable is a boxing drama for which Taiwanese actor Peng underwent intense training to transform his body to look like a mixed martial arts fighter. In the new movie, there is only a brief glimpse of Peng's physique.

Lam and Choi were at a press conference for To The Fore on Wednesday at the Art Science Museum. It opens in cinemas on Thursday.

Fans hoping to see Choi's topless hot bod have to ensure the movie is a hit at the box office. Choi, of Korean boyband Super Junior, says: "If the box office is good, I will come back here and go to a seaside and take my top off."

Despite the testosterone-heavy film set, there was neither much peacocking nor clash of male egos among the cast.

According to the Lam, Choi and his fellow actors braved the tough training together to look the part of a competitive cyclist. The training regimen included cycling 100km daily and thigh workouts at the gym.

Choi and Peng also exchanged workout tips, and ate protein-heavy and healthy food to help build muscles to achieve their ideal physiques. Choi shares that he prefers to have a sleek build, while Peng was after "bigger" and bulky muscles.

The 29-year-old Korean hunk gushed about his new-found soulmate Peng.

He says: "I like Eddie. He's a good friend. It's really hard to find a connection (like that). When I first saw him, I was like, wow, this guy is really awesome. He's a really hard worker. He's my oppa ( Korean for older brother)."
