"We're delighted to know that "Young and Fabulous" has left an impression on the local audiences' minds, especially for the youths. This is what "Young and Fabulous" is about-to inspire youths and to encourage them to not be afraid to follow their dreams, no matter how unconventional they may be."
The movie stars Aloysius Pang ("Timeless Love") as Royston Chio, Joshua Tan ("Ah Boys to Men") as Hao Ren and Malaysian singer, Joyce Chu, in her film debut as Violet Ong.
