The cast is headlined by Tony YANG 楊祐寧 (Formula 17 １７歲的天空 (2004)) opposite Michelle CHEN 陳妍希 (Hear Me 聽說 (2009)) as a young couple who discover that their parents were also each other's first love.
The picture also features Elton TANG 湯志偉, Vicki CHEN 陳孝萱, Johnny C. J. LIN 林宗仁, FAN Kuang-yao 樊光耀 and character actress WANG Shui-chuan 王琄.
First Love is presented by Three Giant, with production by Dragons Group Film Co Ltd 群龍國際影視娛樂有限公司 and Chiao's Arc Light Films Co 吉光電影有限公司. Local and international distributors were not named.
