Indeed! A great story combined with real acting skills by the actors. I can't even tell a single thing on how to describe the whole movie... Fantastic?Heartwarming?Tearjerker? Ommo, help me! hehehe. Well, I decided to watch it wasn't recommended but it was indeed ranked one (recent movie as rated). I read the plot summary first, then told myself" ah, so this movie is about friendship" I scrolled my mouse and looked for read more the website that has it. Then, I saw it. 7 parts. At first, I thought I was a bit confused with the story, maybe because that's JUST the beginning of the story (actually, that's my weakness) but then I told myself again " what if I'll just drop this down"( well that's really like me, if I didn't like the start of every drama or movie, i just, well... drop them). But then, I asked myself" Are you sure? Remember this movie is ranked ONE. So, as I decided to continue watching it, I realized that this movie really has it all! OSTs, the actors, plot, and I will not have a second thought of watching it again, because for me it is very inspiring. Then, I told myself" I hope we(friends) will not be able to experience this"( hardships) but then, if no one is perfect, so is the friendship that I have with my friends right? We do have conflicts with our friends but we come to solve and face them with the help of one another. That's what I've learned. And, uhm,.. ahem. I never thought Kang Sora and Shi Woo would be there.haha Dream High2 and Love Rain. The production got the bestest of the best. All of them did a great job. They deserve a round of applause! Clap!clap!clap!
p.s if you plan to watch Sunny, then prepare a box full of tissue. (based from experience) ;) This is Kris now signing off. Annyeong!

I liked it sooo much that decided to write a few words. Can't say about everybody but don't you guys had friends at school with whom you did crazy things? While watching this movie i remembered my old days and found myself constantly smiling)))) friendship that tied up this different kinds of people, it was like my own story. While we growing up we sometimes losing contacts of each other: family, job, read more different life, etc. Noone at falt. I met my old friends trough 5 years and so can tell that the pleasant feeling of our meeting (and i hope we won't lose each other again) i also felt in this movie, like it was real, i really believed that there was a group SUNNY and they were a real friends.
To sum up, if you want to watch a masrepiece work, then i highly recommend "Sunny"

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.

    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?
