The venue's nearly 1,000 seats were sold out. After the screening, the audience gave a two minute long applause. Wan Cheung was very pleased to be able to receive the local film industry recognition, and the team's hard work on this film was not wasted. This time also injected a shot of confidence into the film. With a daring breakthrough performance in the film, lead actress Leung Man Yi was very touched to see the audience's passionate response. She said, "When I heard nearly 1,000 viewers' applause for the film, the moment truly was touching. This movie makes me feel proud of myself."
