The Young Ones (simplified Chinese :彩云飞; traditional Chinese :彩雲飛; pinyin :cǎiyún fēi; lit. 'flying rosy clouds') is a 1973 Taiwanese film, spoken in Mandarin. The film was adapted into screenplay by Chang Yung-hsiang from the novel of the similar Chinese name by Chiung Yao. It was directed by Li Hsing. It stars Chen Chen (甄珍) and Alan Tang. The music was conducted by Zuo Hong Yuan (左宏元). In the film, the man falls in love with a physically frail woman, who later dies. Then he meets another woman, who looks similar to her.


Chiung Yao's novels, caiyun fei and hai'ou fei chu (海鷗飛處), were adapted into one 1980s television series, hai'ou fei chu caiyun fei (海鷗飛處彩雲飛) (Eng. Seagulls Soaring In Iridescent Clouds ).


Caiyun fei (彩雲飛) is a 1973 soundtrack by Teresa Teng, You Ya (尤雅), and Wan Sha-lang (萬沙浪), released by Life Records (丽风唱片). All songs were composed by Koo Yue (古月) except track ten, whose composer remains anonymous. Except tracks nine and ten, all songs are theme songs of the film. Lyrics from the titular song and "How Can I Leave You?" (我怎能離開你) are similar. "Thousand Words" (千言萬語) and "How Can I Leave You?" were re-recorded by Polydor Records (Hong Kong) for Teresa Teng's 1977 album Greatest Hits.

The Jingnan campaign, or Jingnan rebellion, was a three-year civil war from 1399 to 1402 in the early years of the Ming dynasty of China. It occurred between two descendants of the Ming dynasty's founder Zhu Yuanzhang: his grandson Zhu Yunwen by his first son, and Zhu Yuanzhang's fourth son Zhu Di, Prince of Yan. Though Zhu Yunwen had been the chosen crown prince of Zhu Yuanzhang and been made emperor upon the death of his grandfather in 1398, friction began immediately after Yuanzhang's death. Zhu Yunwen began arresting Zhu Yuanzhang's other sons immediately, seeking to decrease their threat. But within a year open military conflict began, and the war continued until the forces of the Prince of Yan captured the imperial capital Nanjing. The fall of Nanjing was followed by the demise of Zhu Yunwen, the Jianwen Emperor and Zhu Di was thus crowned the Ming Dynasty's third emperor, the Yongle Emperor.
