They say good things come in small packages well, such is the case of this movie. Even though it was brief and, as many other viewers, I would have liked to see more, it was packed with emotion.

CASTING:
I came to watch this movie for Yun Woo Jin but honestly, Lee Je Hoon had my attention throughout. Maybe because the movie starts and ends with him, I found him very endearing. read more MUSIC:
The opening song is catchy, I like that it was performed by the actors, it adds a element of closeness and gives the movie an all-rounded feeling. I also liked Yun Woo Jin's short song that explains his feelings to his mother.

CHEMISTRY:
I'm always a bit concerned about the level of chemistry between actors because this can either 'make-or-break' a drama/movie. I'm glad to say that I really felt the characters' feelings for one another. There's a touching moment where Lee Je Hoon reveals his inner thoughts about homosexuality, which I found compelling. The skinship is also believable and well executed.

REWATCH VALUE:
All in all, a very good movie. I recommend it to anyone who likes these actors. Because it is so short, the rewatch value for this movie is very high. The only warning I have is: beware of the cuteness!

    This is a feel-good movie. Perfect pick-me-up after a typical BL tragedy.

      Agreed!
      And it's from Korea, the land of Sad Endings! Not this time, though.

      It's up on youtube separated on 3 videos. The translation is really bad but there's not that much dialogue anyways.

    This does deep. I want to know if they are keeping contact with each other. Fans can be completely crazy and take bromance or such as this to a next level, where actors (in private life) become awkward around each other. And eventually, grow apart, without knowing it.

      So they do not meet frequently but see or support each other. that's something at least. cuz the friendship of soon Joong-ki and yo ah-in went down the drain, thanks to the fans.

      I also think that's such a pity :( and the rumours of Ah In being gay definitely didn't help their friendship

    For only a 30 minute film, it was quite good for my first Korean movie. I'm not going to be able to say all that much since there wasn't much to say, but when Min Soo's mother walked in on the two of them being intimate together, I slightly wished that her reaction was better, and that she said something before she left. Anyway, the only really enjoyable moment was the ending when they were running together and stopped to kiss. Everything else felt slightly forced, but if I ignored that, I did enjoy the movie.

    Everyone is complaining about it being too short, but it was a short-film, not a movie XD
    The first one was even shorter.
