1-The reason I watched this : Basically because it's an idol film since I like to watch that genre every once in awhile.

2-Storyline/Plot : As the title say; this is an idol film about kpop groups and the struggle they have to go through in order to move from scratch to the top.
There were many good hard working moments and a very boring romance.
Overall, it wasn't that interesting or read more that boring.

3-Acting/Cast : Okay let me say this: I really dislike Park Ye Jin no matter what type of character she leads; here she was good as an actress but the character was annoyingly stiff.
On the other hand, I liked Ji Hyun Woo as an actor but he wasn't that special as a character.
Other actors and characters were really good especially the boys from the group.

4-Music : The strength point of this film was the music; "Summer Dream" was a great song that I still remember till now.

5-Rewatch value : It could've be rewatchable for some people who deeply fell for it.

6-The ending : It wasn't a bad ending but it was really predictable and cliche.

7-Overall : This film had too much potential to make it perfect as an idol story but the writers took the wrong turn while delivering it; it wasn't bad but I still feel like there's something missing.

P.S : If you're idol dramas/films lover than you may actually love this.

It can seem that the title of this movie can tell you all you need to know to watch this movie, or maybe not... But this story handled most of the cliches with such sweet and heartwarming mood, I couldn't give it less then 8.
It can seem the most ordinary 'follow your dream' plot, but it's not, it somehow made me wonder 'Hey, these 4 guys are grown up people and read more more or less are on their own feet in this world (not in music industry), how come they still want to dance, jump on the stage and compete with youngsters?' And then, while watching the parts when they were visiting hospitals and schools... it hit me... why not? Is there a childish dream in the world? (look who's talking...haha~) Seeing their passion and strive for their dream, made my eyes tear...
Music is very sweet and heartwarming, very fitting to the mood of the movie, both songs "Summer Dream" and "Unfinished Song" (especially the latter) are brilliant songs.
All through the movie, I was thinking: "I like this, though it's a little simple, maybe 7... yes, 7"... then the last scene bought me wholly... The sweetest scene EVER! You should watch to be able to understand my unstopping tears at that moment...

Both about the making and debut of an idol band containing men with troubled pasts. Both have big labels trying to stop them.

    I went into this not expecting much. It was pretty good. I just wish there was more talking and story line than there was singing. You only got a glimpse into their past and never really saw anything else. For Jay not to have many lines he did better than expected. The OST is a must buy for me though. That was the best part of the movie.
