Veteran screen writer Lam Kei To revealed that the late Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's final wish was to direct a romantic comedy starring Nanako Matsushima. Lam, who had worked with Leslie on the film Bride With White Hair (Bak Fat Mor Nui Juen), said, "I know that Leslie back then thought about working with a Japanese production company and getting Nanako to be the lead actress. He also mentioned that Leslie had a second draft at the time already, and that preparations for the film were smooth. As for Leslie 's other plan of directing the film version of The Young Concubine (Ngor Ga Dik Nui Yun) with Anita Mui Yim Fong as a co-director who would have been responsible for the acting directions, Lam Kei To said, "Although Anita was sick at the time, Leslie often tried to get her to fulfill her dream to be a director."
