Another star-turned-producer and this time it’s Zhou Xun (Painted Skin, Red Sorghum). It’s based on a novel of the same name, A Journey through Time with Anthony, written in the form of a diary by Anthony as he detailed his life during the ages of 20-23 as a newly graduate being shipped to study overseas, where he gains perception of life and grows as a person. The titular role is handed to top model, Liu Chang, as his movie debut and his leading lady is a face frequently seen in theaters this past few weeks – Bai Bai He (Monster Hunt).
Does the premise remind some of you of a Japanese movie?
I think he looks older than he is. Standing at 6’2″, Liu Chang was born in 1988.
Bai Bai He. He meets her in Japan under the beautiful cherry blossoms.
Tina Tang, one of Anthony’s friends.
This gotta be the cutest thing, Liu Chang and his model friends promoting for the movie. Them long legs at work! =D
Press Conference, one in Feb to celebrate its production stage and one this past week.
Liu Chang and his manner legs. 😉
Does this woman look 40 to you?!! At times….at times….
Jin Shi Jia or Kingscar Jin. He’s looking very handsome lately with that neatly trimmed beard…

Behind the Scene/Cast Interview:
- Zhou Xun describes her role as a producer as interesting – like being a chef, being able to pick and choose the ingredients that go into the pot. The movie is said to be very light-hearted and gentle.
- The Japanese movie I mentioned above is called A Story of Yonosuke, starring my bias, Kengo Kora, as the awkward Uni student and his positive influence on the people around him. It is a very endearing story that is very simple in story structure but hits all the right notes of nostalgia.
- Liu Chang is pretty new so I’m a bit nervous for his movie debut.
- Editing the script is Amy Chin (Born Wild, La Lingerie) and directing is Chun Siu Chun (The Four movie franchise), A Journey through Time with Anthony premieres in theaters on October 16th.
