I laughed, I cried and in-between I smiled. This movie is really awesome.
It's about a friendship between seven really different teenage girls that survives throughout time. It's a story about love and loyalty and how sweet memories can taste so that you smile every time you think about them. Everyone of us has those memories.
So this movie is about the real life. About the best times of our lifes. After read more watching it your heart will feel full, I promise.

I just watched the most amazing movie ever! No seriously, this movie was fricking awesome! It made me laugh, it made me cry and I just adored every moment of it! It's definitely one of the better Korean movies I've seen and it made it to my favorites list. I can't believe I waited so long to watch it!

This movie is about friendship and it is very close to reality. I read more think that is why it made me cry so much, both happy and sad tears. It made me miss my friends and made me wonder what will happen in the future.

The story is really good! The way they switched between past and present was really cool and the movie was very well directed. The costumes and music of the past were done really well. The camera work was really good. And it was a lot of fun to watch.

The acting was very good, of both teen and adult actors. I saw Sora for the first time on We Got Married. She's completely different from how she was there! Here she is a bad-ass leader of Sunny and I loved her! The other girls were pretty good too. Na Mi reminded me somewhat of Velma from Scooby Doo :P

They cast the adult actors pretty well too. The faces matched and it was like they were the older versions of the teen actors. So props to the casting directors for doing such a good job. Also, the situations in which all of the characters were, were very real. That's what I loved the most about this movie, it was very close to reality.

Either Kim Shi Hoo-ssi loves to play characters from the past or he has that kind of a face that the directors cast him as a 80s boy. He played the same kind of role in Love Rain and I was pleasantly surprised to see him in this movie. The crush thing was so cute! It brought back memories of my first crush :P

I would highly recommend this movie even if you don't watch Asian movies. This movie is really well done, the acting is really good, the story is amazing and touching and it is definitely worth your while.

Both movies reminisce about high school days and bring about the nostalgia of adolescence and high school friendships.
Recommended by rachel.lam
Both deal with the theme of "growing up", and transiting from the teenage to adult years. Both sort of characterize teen years as more innocent and happy, and adult years as more harsh, filled with more troubles. Both have awesome acting, and both are respectively my favorite Chinese and Korean movies ever.

    Made me laugh, cry and care about the characters. Never thought I would have the pleasure of watching something so fantastic. The bitter-sweetness of the whole movie left me a lasting feeling long after the movie ended and is currently my favorite movie of all time.

    I kept putting off watching this because I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the hype.
    Boy, am I glad I decided to watch it after all.
    I think (and hope) this movie will stay with me for a very, very long time.

    Anyone else think the actor playing Junho was cast and styled to look like a young Won Bin?
