To describe this, a Korean idol focused film collab with Chinese actors/actresses gone stray and pretty well average..beyond average......I originally gave this movie a 7.5 rating, however with much thought, I think it was overly cliche and extremely cheesy with very predictable scenes. I am not biased by any means to the main actor and main actress. As being a huge romance genre fan, I felt the film was too short to read more portray the love between the two main characters and explain how they fell in love with more depth and thoroughness. The acting presented by EXO's Chanyeol was not anything special especially his character almost mimics his actual life as a Korean idol. It was great to see a collaboration between Korean and Chinese actors/actresses but I expected better.

Story: One word.....RUSHED. The plot did not have enough time to develop itself which led to actors/casting scenes being rushed and had too many plot holes. The romance was very undeveloped and didn't brought the viewer out at all. The character's personalities were not flushed out enough and needed more time to build. The supporting actors/actresses' side stories and motives were barely explained and this area should been more developed. There were scenes that were definitely shoved in especially at the end.

Acting/Cast: Chanyeol. It is hard to judge his acting as his character is too similar to his actual life. They chose a typical arrogant and jerk celebrity typecast for him that is quite easy to portray when you are already a huge idol in her real life. Yuan Shanshan was bright spot on. I believe her role kept the film going to assist with its strengths to cover its weaknesses. Seohyun (Girls' Generation)'s role was barely in the film and had very few lines and random scenes of her being dropped in. Her character needs more of an importance instead of 3 lines. Her motives as a character in the film was not clearly explained as well.

Music: I heard Chanyeol in the OST which was a great hear for him to be solo instead of having minimal lines in EXO. Other than that, nothing is special.

Rewatch Value: Normally, I will rewatch a film to see any parts that I missed because of the detail or fast-paced depthness of the story. This plot was very 'average' and very easy to follow. There is not anything motivating me to rewatch a second or third time.

This film should been made into a drama instead. There was a lot of areas to be developed, thus without enough time, it was forced to be cut into a 2 hour film with many areas under-developed and rushed. The main characters felt more like a pair of friends than a couple in the film. If it was a drama, it would have been more believable and less plot holes. I watched this because of the 'hype', I came out of it with a face of 'disappointment.'

Sure! This movie has wonderful cast. The start of the film was absolutely great and looks promising that you wanted to look forward for a surprise or something. And surprise! The surprise never came, it get boring towards the middle and becoming bland towards the end. Very predictable story! Overall, it's a complete mess.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

- Same Male Leads - CHANYEOL /(^3^)/
- Both of the story lines are really fluffy and cringe, with no deeper meaning. Also both stories are pretty predictable
- Same Male Lead 'vibe' , the male leads both had the mean facade and treated the girl really badly at first
- REPEAT Same Male Leads - CHANYEOL /(^3^)/

Overall both were really enjoyable, but woudn't be the type of drama/movie I would stay up until 5am watching.

    Reallyyy cheesy and rushed. Two scenes made me giggle. If you don't have anything better to watch at 4 a.m. I guess this is your call.

    Btw the title doesn't depict the movie at all, it really threw me off.

    disappointed....not what i was waiting for ..seems like they totally forgot to tell or show why they fell for eachother which unfortunately could've been the most important and adorable part in the movie :/ :/ ..what I mean is that it was not enough ( or convincing^^)

    This was sooo cute & very lighthearted... Chanyeol is so adorable, handsome, and those little smiles were sooooo squee worthy ;p
    Sometimes one needs a refreshing sweet movie without a heavy plot, to enjoy on a lazy day...

    Well a well edited movie does makes all the difference. Story wise nothing out of the ordinary, but quite a number of funny scenes, specially the handcuffs scene. 2nd leads were caricatures, lead girl was irritating the first half of the movie (she deserved to be fired, but the magazine itself is so unprofessional. What has become with the journalism industry?!?). She becomes much better the second half, but then things go the usual route, which is boring :P

    Nice watch overall though
