When I read the synopsis for the movie I thought it'd be a typical romantic comedy through and through but most of the movie turned out to be a serious and mellow take on how relationships shape you up.

The story wasn't a novel idea but it was well executed. I loved some of the little bits and pieces of the movie. The characters were realistic and believable. What surprised me the read more most was the end of the movie. I had thought would be the message in the end was completely different than what was actually delivered and I wasn't upset at all. Being someone who knows what Jini went through, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I agreed with the end.

The actors did a splendid job making me believe in their performances and relate to the characters are real people and not just figments of imagination.

I'm really bad at noticing music in a movie unless something stands out especially so forgive me for not being able to really comment in this department.

Despite how much I liked the movie, if I was given a choice to rewatch it, I'd be in two minds. On one hand it gave a realistic view about relationships that was refreshing. On the other hand, I watch rom-coms to escape reality and feel good so I'm not sure if I'd watch it with that mind set.

It's a good movie, something you can pick over at the weekend and watch. Don't watch it with the delusion of being a friends-gathering sort of movie though.

S Diary is a romantic comedy, but it has a serious/sad feeling to it. Kim Sun Ah plays Jini very well. Her character changes depending on the person she is with---Lee Hyun Woo the priest, Kim Soo Ro the playboy, and Gong Yoo the artist--- during the look back on her relationships. At first when she goes to speak to each ex-boyfriend she seems to be looking for confirmation that she was read more loved and then seeks revenge against the men that she feels didn't love her. The revenge part is where it becomes actually funny. In the end she realizes the truth, that no matter what kind of relationship a person is in or how that relationship ends there is meaning. SPOILERISH >>> I like how at the end we get a glimpse of how the men in her lives really felt about her during their relationship.

The plot is pretty good, the acting is excellent. This is the kind of movie to watch for fun. Plus Kim Sun Ah is in it.

    i liked the film but it wasnt anything special, probably the only enjoyable part for me was when she was getting her revenge on her ex boyfriends that did make me laugh, i did like how the storyline was something different but it could have been better, i admit i skipped some parts of the film because i got bored, but it wasnt all to bad and i would recommend it for those looking for a light film to pass the time

    I really liked this movie, and I don't think the ratings are totally fair. For my humble opinion it was a very insightful journey of self love and discovery for a girl that thought she was the problem. I just wish all auto discovery journeys were so funny.
