After the red carpet ceremony, the director along with the actors met with over 1,000 viewers in the cinema. This film just opened the Hong Kong International Film Festival and received great word of mouth. The premiere was also sold out. The media pointed out that the film was somewhat similar to Ong Sai's earlier work COMRADES ALMOST A LOVE STORY (TIM MUK MUK). Tang Wei said, "I am still new, I don't dare to be mentioned in the same breath as COMRADES ALMOST A LOVE STORY lead actress (Maggie) Cheung Man Yuk, the distance is too far!"
