The upcoming feature will open across Chinese mainland theaters on July 20.
Hong Kong veteran musician Kubert Leung is the movie's music director, and the singers are Japanese pop diva Mika Nakashima, Chinese mainland songwriter-singer Zhou Bichang, and Taiwan singers Aska Yang and Lala Hsu.
The movie marks veteran producer Bill Kong's latest investment in a coming-of-age movie, 10 years after he produced Jay Chou's directorial debut, Secret, also about youngsters.
Around 1,000 preview screenings were recently held across the nation, and most of them gave the movie thumbs-up. The film's score on the movie site Maoyan.com is 9.1 points out of 10.
