The story started in high school. Su Yun Jin was a gentle and quiet student, while Cheng Zheng was the total opposite of her. He fell in love with her and started to pursue her until they sat in college, even when they studied in a different university. After a while they finally started dating.
However, the difference in their family background and personalities caused them to part way with each other. A few years later, Yun Jin established a successful career and Cheng Zheng reappeared in her life.

The movie's not perfect, but I still love it :) Great music, great cinematography, and dialogue exchange on confessions ... I replay all the couple interactions between the two main characters, just because, I'm a sucker for make-out scenes.
WHAT CAN BE IMPROVED:
It would've been better if it included a backstory (as explained in the original novel) on how Cheng Zheng fell in love with Su Yunjin. Also, the movie did not provide more scenes on events that occurred, ultimately not giving enough time on characters to grow and develop properly throughout the story.
Otherwise, the movie is great. The ending was slightly disappointing because I wanted a more straightforward ending, but it opened up questions and allowed me to think about what should happen based on the decisions the couples have made in the story. It's a neutral ending and I didn't see anything bad from it.
By the way, this movie ending isn't the actual ending to the story. If you watch the MV version of the theme song to Never Gone you would see the perfect happy ending that most viewers would be looking for. *raises hand* :)
Personally, I liked the movie although there were some gaps in the plot but that is somehow understandable considering its short duration. I liked it because it shows real-life situations, it shows how unconditional love can be and how some people are willing to leave everything behind just to experience it and others are not. It shows us the undesirable difference between the poor and the rich. But it also makes it visible to us that money is not exactly everything as we are used to thinking mainly about money in the 21st century. On the other hand, the action was way too fastened and it does not give us the chance to think over the plot. It does not let us see the entire beauty of what is being shown on the screen. However, if it had been done in a drama series, it would not have brought that special feeling at the very end.
To sum up, I recommend the movie to everyone who likes 'dumb' romantic comedies, it warms the heart for sure.
