By directing Four Loves and The Silent Wife (1965), LI was the first person in the 1960s to launch Chiung-Yao’s novels onto the big screen. In the 70s he started the second wave of the Chiung-Yao film craze with The Young Ones. He later produced consecutive blockbusters The Heart with a Million Knots (1973) and Where the Seagull Flies (1974). The Young Ones was a key critical movie that served as a link between the past and the future, and enjoys a special status in the series of Chiung-Yao movies. It is also a representative work of the actress ZHEN Zhen, who was given an Honorary Award in the 50th Golden Horse Film Festival.
