The story was quite different from other love stories involving terminal diseases. Instead of presenting a heartbreaking love between the two leads, it leaned to a funny and lighthearted interpretation of what it's like to die with someone you love. And it worked out well.

The cast was adorable, and the acting was well-done. I've been watching lots of Uhm Tae Woong's projects these days. I guess he must really be that read more good of an actor to be given such many interesting projects.

I liked the music. It's rare that I get captivated by the music from Korean movies, and this one's part of the rare ones. The music's really nice.

It doesn't have a high rewatch value although the movie's really good. I guess if you watch it over and over again, it could be somewhat tiresome.

Overall, the movie's a great mixture of a terminal disease romance plot and comedy with a pinch of hope and heartbreak.

The premise of this movie reminded me a little of Scent of A Woman and A Moment to Remember - you start off the show knowing there is a certain terminal illness awaiting a main character, except in this show, it applies to both the main characters.

It is a charming show at best. The two lead characters' personalities are polar opposites, making them a pretty good fit. More so, they share read more the same morbid sense of humour and way of looking at their remaining days on earth. In a sense, the story stays true to the title of the show - 'Never Ending Story'. Even though the characters know they face terminal illness, they must live on as normally as they can - EVEN if the subject matter of their dates are pretty heavy stuff, like looking for urns or choice funeral parlours.

Uhm Tae Woong and Jung Ryeo Won are not too bad in this show - they do a decent job.

    Seeing Park Ki Wong so laid back here... and comparing his character in Gaksital. Totally different! Great actor!

    I found this somehow similar to Pain, the movie with the same female lead. She found her stereotype?
