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* :)

The action takes place in very beautiful 'nooks' of China - Beijing, Shanghai - which allows us to see not only the beauty of Kris and the main actress but the beauty of this Asian country as well. Nobody can deny that their roles are played perfect - you can actually feel all the pain and confusion the characters are meant to express as well as kind of put yourself in their read more shoes. You start asking yourself the question 'what would I do if he/she were me'.

Personally, I liked the movie although there were some gaps in the plot but that is somehow understandable considering its short duration. I liked it because it shows real-life situations, it shows how unconditional love can be and how some people are willing to leave everything behind just to experience it and others are not. It shows us the undesirable difference between the poor and the rich. But it also makes it visible to us that money is not exactly everything as we are used to thinking mainly about money in the 21st century. On the other hand, the action was way too fastened and it does not give us the chance to think over the plot. It does not let us see the entire beauty of what is being shown on the screen. However, if it had been done in a drama series, it would not have brought that special feeling at the very end.

To sum up, I recommend the movie to everyone who likes 'dumb' romantic comedies, it warms the heart for sure.

These two are both movies and I think there a sequel. Both about romance. Thumbs up

    So Young 2: So You're Still Here pode ou não agradar, está é questão, por isso não tenho muito o que dize, achei a história muito básica, falto um "Q" de algo a mais. Não tem defeitos, nem prós ou qualquer outro ponto que seria legal destacar. Um filme razoável.

    I actually really liked this movie. After reading some comments about it I wasn't sure wether I should watch it or not, but now I am glad I did. Somehow this was a kind of story I needed right now. Of course the ending is a bit confusing and my advice is to watch the deleted scenes, but in my opinion even the actual ending of this movie works for me.

    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.
