YesAsia Editorial Description

It's traditional Chinese music versus western classical music in the charming youth drama Our Shining Days from first-time director Wang Ran and Love is Not Blind writer Bao Jingjing. Television actress Xu Lu (Tribe and Empires: Storm of Prophecy) stars as 17-year-old music student Chen Jing, who plays the yangqin, a traditional stringed instrument. She doesn't have much ambition to speak of and just spends most of her time hanging around with her friend Li You (Peng Yuchang, Go Princess Go). When Jing falls for a snooty piano student (Luo Mingjie) in the classical musical department, she decides to form a traditional music ensemble in order to impress him. She scouts a reluctant group of misfits into the ensemble, and they band together to prove themselves when the school threatens to shut down the traditional music department. Eason Chan also makes a cameo appearance in the zero-to-hero crowd-pleaser.

The sound of dreams
In many Chinese communities, people tend to learn classical western music because traditional Chinese music is often thought to be old-fashioned. Pitting traditional music against classical music, the teen romcom Our Shining Days revives the image of Chinese music and reminds people of their initial dreams.

Chen Jing (Xu Lu, Tribe and Empires: Storm of Prophecy) is an optimistic yet aimless music student who plays the yangqin, a traditional hammered dulcimer. To impress her love interest Wang Wen (Luo Mingjie), a cold and supercilious piano major, Jing recruits her buddy Li You (Peng Yuchang, Go Princess Go) and a group of cosplay-loving outcasts to form a traditional music ensemble. Since Wang Wen rebuffs her love, Jing decides to disband the group. However, after learning that their department will be closed, Jing and other traditional music students battle against the arrogant classical students to prove themselves and the value of traditional Chinese music.

The film creatively combines traditional music with modern music and ACG (Anime, Comic and Games) culture. At the comics and animation festival, Jing and her friends perfectly show the adaptability of traditional music through their powerful performance of the viral Chinese anime theme "Sun Quan the Emperor," an ancient-style number featuring cool electric guitar tunes. The two departments' fierce battle also displays the harmonization between traditional and classical music. Flight of the Bumblebee is a famous classical number known for its frantic tempo, while A Hundred Birds Paying Homage to the Phoenix is a representative suona piece that features a lot of ad lib. The two completely unrelated songs are refreshingly merged together.

Despite the film's clichéd dream-chasing storyline, writer Bao Jingjing (Love Is Not Blind) and rookie director Wang Ran use entertaining ACG elements and the amusing subplot of Chen Jing's one-sided love to enliven the serious discussion about musical equality. Our Shining Days not only promotes traditional Chinese music, but it carries an even bigger message: all dreams deserve respect.
