Just finished watching. It has been a long time since I cried my eyes out because of a movie. It feels good to let it all out. Do you know what is awesome with this movie ? It's that you know exactly what is going to happen but you can still feel it deeply because it is beautifully made. This is a real piece of art.

Well, the story is pretty read more much very predictable once you read the synopsis and after a few minute in the movie, I personally had figured out what was going to happen. Also, be prepared, the beginning is quite slow but this kind of pace matches this kind of movie.
The story isn't particularly new. You will probably get a feeling of deja-vue. the story alone I would rate 3-4/10. But what bring the grade up are the characters. I loved them, completely. They were so real, so 3d, so youthful and refreshing. I could see bit of myself in them. That's is why I rated the story 7/10. Because even if this kind of story have been done millions of times, the characters were actually interesting. They weren't those 2d (even 1d at time), stereotyped characters that we see everywhere nowadays.
The friendship was beautifully portrayed. At the beginning, I was afraid that the little bit of romance would ruin it all, as it's often the case, but don't worry the romance is well balanced in this one.

About the ending, I have heard people say that it was disappointing and selfish. But, I think that the ending is the strongest part of this story. Any other ending would have been disappointing. It's a very realistic ending.

10/10, Awesome, perfect !

So perfectly on point. Honestly I generally don't pay much attention to music as long as it is not bothersome. But, I remember every single song of this movie because every single song went perfectly with the flow.

Rewatch Value
This the kind of movie that is actually pretty boring to rewatch, so I don't see the need. But I guess, if in a distant future, I feel the need for a tear-jerking movie, this one would be an option

It's not the movie of the year that's for sure. The plot has been overused, that's definitely true. But, if you want to see real art, if you are ready to let yourself be immersed, if you are disposed to open your heart, I promise you that you can have a wonderful experience with this movie. If you have time, give it a try.

I just watched this movie. I don't know how to put my review into words without a spoiler. That explains how short and vague the synopsis of this movie is. The story was heartbreaking for me and I cried a lot.

I don't know if this is a spoiler, but I find the story similar to AnoHana. If you loved that movie, you'll love this too. The poster actually is a huge read more spoiler too. lol.

I also don't know if it's just my mood, but I actually kind of got bored in the first half of the movie, so I watched the other half the next day. If you felt the same, please don't give it up. Give it another chance, and you'll love it.

The acting was really good. Not one had bad acting. There are times that they're not talking but you can totally understand what they want to portray. My favorite scene was the scene underwater. No words, just amazing acting.

I loved all the music they played too. The most "unforgettable" was the one they played in the radio. Weeps.

I don't find the story as original as I've watched a similar one, but I'm still giving this a perfect 10 because even then, It still has its own personality and overall, I find the movie wonderful. I loved the subtle romance for teen characters. It was sad but so 'Genuine', as the title given.

Both film is about friendship that started in childhood and been reunited by the death of a friend. Also both were musical.

    I found this movie forgettable. I just didn't become invested in the characters. :( The acting was great but the story was blah. Didn't give the actors a chance to shine in my opinion!

    I finished this a couple days ago... kinda. I skimmed a lot. It is a great coming of age movie for those that are interested, that to which I am not. Solid 7 and some change.

    I honestly... Didn't like this so much. I cried only when they started crying cause their crying was so legit when the "Soo Ok thing" occured. Other than that, I didn't cry as much as others are saying and it didn't captivate my attention as much. As much as I love Kyungsoo, I don't know. I didn't feel the movie as much. The chemistry was barely there. It was okay. I'd say give it a go if you're hesitant about watching it and make your own opinion towards it. ^^
