Cast & Credits
The first thing to know is that it is not exciting. This is a very quiet movie. It reminds me a lot of the French art movies - where people spend a lot of time looking at each other, or off into the distance, and there isn't any music. There are interesting/amusing/sweet plot bits sprinkled throughout the expanses of quiet, and the action, as it were, happens in the last 20 minutes or so.
I am still not certain what the main message of the movie was. Again, its a very art-y movie. I would have liked a tighter story/plot and better character development. You don't get enough information to get invested in any of the couples or the resolution. But it was charming in its way, and for only about 1.75 hours of my life, I'm glad I watched it.
Its not super well acted, but its way better than many of the web dramas I've seen. Everyone's acting level is about the same, so the idols don't stand out as bad and, in fact, the boys may be the best actors in it.
Pros: You get to watch long stretches of Ren, Minhyun, and JR.
Cons: It requires patience.
