Romance of youth
Actress Zhao Wei's maiden directorial work So Young will premiere on April 26. Zhao works with seasoned Hong Kong producer Stanley Kwan and writer Li Qiang to take the romance, based on a best-selling novel, to the big screen. Zhao calls the film a tribute to youth. It is also her graduation work from the directing department of the Beijing Film Academy. Her cast includes Taiwan heartthrob Mark Zhao and two new mainland actresses. Zhao says she loves both to act and direct. Although she finds directing a film to be demanding, she will try it again for stories that attract her.
