This film was quite good in my opinion, but I found it shouldn't be watched when sad. It is not an uplifting film in any way.
Personally, I think the beginning was very well done. The child actors did a good job within the film, especially given it was such a big part. When it got to when she was older it got a bit confusing I thought, but after a little read more thinking you can understand. The story line was good, but I think it had a bit too many concepts thrown in. I wish it was a simple "girl returns to grandmother and has to adapt to life" sort of thing, but I understand that for a lot of people, that wouldn't sell. I also don't like how there are hints at romance within it, but then that is abandonned - you should either leave it or put it in. However if that sort of thing doesn't bother you then this film is pretty good.
As I said, the cast is quite good. The young children within the film do a good job, as do the grandmother and Hye-ji. The acting can't be flawed too much, but I don't think it was a perfect performance by anybody.
Overall, I would rewatch it possibly. I think it is a nice film and it does give you something to think about, which I enjoy. It was a good film.

Sadly, I can't tell you where to get English subtitles online. I'm sure they will come out soon. I watched it on a Cathay Pacific flight, so that's the only way I can tell you to get it (nice holiday in HK)

      if you have any hopes to see much of Choi Min Ho or Ryu Jool Yeon then I probably have to disappoint you. They don't have much importance. Two lead actresses make a great job though.

      Lol, I was actually looking forward to seeing Yoon Yeo Jeong. She is amazing in everything I see her in

      She is! My point was their roles are so small in comparison it gives an impression they were mostly casted to bring more viewers with their names, plus they are very high on a cast list here. A rookie would do their parts and no one would give them much attention.
      So: trust the poster, not the cast list this time.
