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.

Reply 1988 is one of my favorite dramas and when I started watching Sunny, I started getting the same vibes and feels I did while watching that drama.

Reply 1988 is a drama while Sunny is a movie, but both occur in a similar time period in the past and evoke nostalgic feelings even if you didn't live through that time period yourself.

The friendship theme is strong and both the drama and movie are slow paced, yet interesting, funny, and realistic.

You'll find yourself laughing, crying, feeling sentimental while connecting to all of the characters!!! :")

    I am a man.

    Not from Korea.

    Who did not grow up during the 70s.

    Why did this make me laugh and cry SO MUCH!? 9/10, would have been 9.5 if not for the language.

    I wanted to watch this, but 40 minutes in, start doubting whether it's the same movie as the synopsis... Turns out, I've been watching a completely different movie. Sunny (2008, with Soo Ae) instead of Sunny 2011. God so frustrating lol

    I can't be the only one who felt like they could (kinda) relate to everything that happend, the love and the sadness.. I'm still young but time moves so fast and youth will forever be something that you'll never forget and this movie definitely showed that

    Halfway through the movie but god they seriously chose the perfect adult actors to match the child counterparts for Jang Mi, Na Mi, Chun Hwa, and Jin Hee

    EDIT: For all of them!!

    Sunny or spoiled?
    Guys, what's this !? I laughed a lot, it deserves a check!
    Comedy is the strong point and highlight of this film, although it brings with it a good deal of drama. Overall it's good, good story, good soundtrack, great cast, creating a harmony that is reflected in "Sunny". "Sunny" is politically incorrect but has a different value so you can not criticize it.
