Things I Liked:
- The music was pleasant to listen to.
- The cinematography was beautiful.
- Aesthetically pleasing actors.

Things I Disliked:
- There was no real character depth or any proper development.
- Predictable story-line.
- Too fast paced that you won't even be able to register some events that happen during the course of the movie.
- I'm a fan of Wu Yifan (geddit??), so it's kinda like my read more civic duty as a fangirl to unnecessarily hype up my fave. But even I can easily admit his acting was, at times (especially during the emotional scenes lol) atrocious.
- The ending that left me with more questions than answers.

Check this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1E-qugSxZLA) out after the movie to understand the story better and get an actual ending. I'm still wondering how they could leave these scenes out.

Overall, So Young 2 wasn't a terrible movie and it didn't bore me at all (mainly because it was too quick), but I probably won't be watching this one again.

WHAT I THINK IS GOOD:

The movie's not perfect, but I still love it :) Great music, great cinematography, and dialogue exchange on confessions ... I replay all the couple interactions between the two main characters, just because, I'm a sucker for make-out scenes.

WHAT CAN BE IMPROVED:

It would've been better if it included a backstory (as explained in the original novel) on how Cheng Zheng fell in love with Su read more Yunjin. Also, the movie did not provide more scenes on events that occurred, ultimately not giving enough time on characters to grow and develop properly throughout the story.

Otherwise, the movie is great. The ending was slightly disappointing because I wanted a more straightforward ending, but it opened up questions and allowed me to think about what should happen based on the decisions the couples have made in the story. It's a neutral ending and I didn't see anything bad from it.

By the way, this movie ending isn't the actual ending to the story. If you watch the MV version of the theme song to Never Gone you would see the perfect happy ending that most viewers would be looking for. *raises hand* :)

    Honestly I watched it just because of Kris and I still feel like I wasted an hour and a half of my life. In the end all I could think was what was the point of this? Sorry, but it's really bad....

    I really liked this movie, but a heads up if you are going to watch it the ending is a little unclear. Be sure to watch the extended/deleted scenes on you tube to give a clearer understanding.

    I'm a guy and I really feel for the main lead here. The hell with this girl, had she realized that she made the guy suffer so much. It is the worst feeling ever, not knowing if she loves you or not. Well just my personal thought but overall a pretty good movie, the message is conveyed so well, it's straight in your face.

    Wow. Really bad acting on Kris Wu's part. Embarrassingly so. Someone also needs to teach that boy how to kiss too. He is so awkward it's uncomfortable watching him. All of the so called 'romance' in this seemed to be him clumsily attacking her. He is far from ready for this kind of lead role. And scenes requiring strong emotions from him were just so forced, obviously so. Strangely, the rest of the movie and the rest of the actors were actually quite watchable. Lovely to look at too. It's not a movie I'd recommend to anyone, but it could have been much better (for me) with a different lead.

    quite bad. i didn't like Kris' character, neither did i like his acting..i felt like every time he kissed her, he was actually harassing her. also, no real chemistry between the couple.

    I actually liked this movie. It wasn't perfect by any means, but I thought it was cute. But it felt more like a chessy tv movie instead of a movie that would be released in theaters. I think the acting was fine for the most part. Some scenes were pretty awkward, but overall I thought the acting was decent. And when you're done with the movie make sure you watch the deleted scenes! If I hadn't seen the deleted scenes I would've been so annoyed with the ending.

    I think I just wasted my time in this movie. I just continue watching it til the end hoping that this film will at least satisfy me. No chemistry to couples and I think only Kris made this movie somehow bearable.
