I loved this film...from beginning to end.

Story- It wasn't a completely original or necessarily a new plot but the execution was almost flawless, each character was individual and unique. The story spent a long time in the past, and it worked because we got to know them in the past before we saw them in the future. The only downside and its not really a downside, is maybe they could have read more made it a little longer so we could understand their lives a little better.

Acting- Just great! I don't really know Kang So Ra so I'm not biased but my favorite character was Sunny's leader Ha Chun Hwa she's feisty and loyal.

Music- I loved all the 80's music... surprisingly even though they were American songs they worked really well. They made the scenes funnier at times, and more touching.

I'd watch it again, and if you're considering whether to watch it definitely do. It's not too heavy, but its touching enough to leave an impact, but not the type that makes you feel depressed but the type that makes you feel like seeing all your friends.

You know a movie is good when you wish you had relationships like this! This was definitely a wonderful story about growing up and the highs and lows! 7 girls became friends who never forgot about each other. We all wish we had friendships like this! Even though they did not keep in touch, when they got together again, it was like time had stood still and we were privileged to watch. read more I loved all of the characters; both young and old! There will lines from this movie that will stick with me for a long time! "Bitch! you're rich!" Watch it and you will see!

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.

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

    This is my new favorite korean movie....HANDS DOWN!!!! The actors were amazing ad the story was raw and realistic and I found myself crying in places that I didn't expect to cry because of everything that their friendship meant to them. I highly recommend this to everyone!!

    Loved this movie. Though I feel should have been longer. I wanted to know more about Su-Ji and how Na-Mi changes her life (with her husband and her relationship with her daughter).Felt a bit anti climatic.
