30 Apr – It must have felt like Christmas to actress-turned-director, Zhao Wei, as her directorial debut, "So Young", was successful in breaking "Lost in Thailand" opening day record.

As reported on HK Top Ten website, "So Young" exceeded RMB45 million in opening day sales, and broke "Lost in Thailand" record of RMB35 million.

According to the Mainland online advanced box office tabulation, the movie has also surpassed Stephen Chow's "Journey to the West" in advanced sales.

Hearing the news, the overjoyed Zhao Wei was heard screaming, "We beat (Stephen) Chow Sing Chi!"

Zhao Wei's first directorial effort, "So Young", is based on the best-selling novel by Xin Yiwu, entitled "To Our Youth that is Fading Away". In addition, the film was also based in part by Zhao's own personal college experience in the '90s.

The movie stars fresh faces Mark Chao, Han Geng, Yang Zishan and Jiang Yushin.

The movie has also received generally favourable reviews, with critics calling it "the most passing youth film in the past 10 years".

Zhao Wei stated, "Although the film is called "So Young", it is basically made for adults; in particular to those with experience."
