SUNNY, want some true? I LOVE YOU!!!
This is one of those movies, that you think while watching the 10th minute, oh, hell, why didn't I watch this earlier???
This is such a heartwarming and brilliant story, it made me cry, just because it was so good! After the movie was over, I wanted to hug my besties SO much, it's a pity it was 3 in the morning and it was read more not possible...
I was so sad because of the unfortunate reason they were reconnected after so many years, and kind of confused why they had to separated in the first place.
The dialogue of the main leads, just broke my heart, it's so important to understand, that YOU are the protagonist of you life, and having your friends with you makes it a lot easier.
I hope my friends always remain by my side.
Thank you SUNNY!!!

Okay so here's the deal, I hardly ever write reviews unless it's a really good movie or drama. So here it goes:

This movie is a very touching movie, I guess in one word I would describe it as inspirational. I hope that one day I will meet friends just like the member of Sunny and have the same relationship as them.

The story line was amazing! It was never slow or read more lagging behind to the point where I had to fast forward it. There was never a dull moment in the movie. Ever second I was lured into the movie either because of the emotions the characters showed and because of the story itself.

The acting/cast was PERFECT. Honestly, it's a miracle that the directors were able to find such perfect actors and actresses that were able to portray their characters incredibly. Also all the actors and actresses were beautiful.

The music even though some of the music was... how should I say it... "old styled?" I still liked it because it was catchy to the point where it got stuck in my head and made me want to Google up the lyrics for the song and find the music.

I would totally re-watch the movie. Usually I'm very picky about re-watching stuff but... this... this is worth re-watching because it has life lessons in it, and the story and plot actually seem realistic to me. Watching the movie didn't make me think "Ohh, this is so unreal this would never happen in real life". I was glad because it someone shows the truth behind an all girls school. Even though people hardly see it, there are actually girls like that. (I know from experience)

Overall, I would actually give this movie a 11/10! For me, now a days I find it hard to find movies and dramas that catch my attention because I feel as though I've watched it all but luckily this movie caught my attention thanks to WGM (We Got Married). So anyways, I would recommend this movie to people who want to watch a heart-touching movie about seven women who were friends in high school able to reunite after 25 years.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Legend and Sunny both have music in them. Also Ahjummas and their problems in life. The characters are kind of the same. Though Sunny has more quirky and funnier characters. Both are recommended.

DQ is a easy- breezy storyline of going for your dream as adults. The two stories focus on 40+ women who have life swirling around them as they cope with their old selves battling present day. If your looking for something enjoyable w seasoned, matured actors, give Dancing Queen a spin.

    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.
