TAIWAN - Mar 5, 2003

Taiwan's Public Television Service has produced a new TV mini-series exploring Taiwan's underground gay culture based on Taiwan's first gay-themed novel, Crystal Boys, and starring the country's hottest young actors.

The cast includes handsome newcomers Ma Chih-Hsiang and Wing Fan, along with award winning actors Ko Chun-Hsiung, Wang Chueh, and Ting Chiang. Movie fans agree that its the best looking group of actors ever assembled for a Taiwanese TV drama, a lavish production that faithfully reproduces 80 different settings from the 1970s period in which the story takes place.

At a press conference in Taipei, the author of the original novel, Pai Hsieng-Yung, said that he was extremely pleased with the casting, especially that of the young actors who portray the gang of lost boys.

Crystal Boys was first published in 1983 and was adapted in 1986 into a feature film called The Outsiders. The story takes place mainly around the shadowy cruising grounds of Taipei's New Park.
