It portrays the hardships of first love, spanning 10 years as they mature from children into adults. Woo Yeon was a high school student who hated studying and spent his days getting into fights. His life appears to be going nowhere until he meets a new transfer student named Seung Hee. He falls in love with her at first sight, though she does not appear to reciprocate. Although Seung Hee doesn't seem interested in Woo Yeon, she grows annoyed at the countless male admirers, and they both agree to pretend to be dating, under the condition that Woo Yeon will stop fighting. He promises, and over time their relationship that was once fake, begins to develop into real love. However one day, Seung Hee contacts Woo Yeon, telling him to take care. She then leaves town, leaving him heartbroken. He however continues in life, going on to finish high school and find a career. His life seems to be improving, until some time later, he receives a wedding invitation from none other than her, his first love. (Source: AJ at MyDramaList) Edit Translation

Fun fact: this movie came out on my birthday. But then of course, we had to wait a little to finally be able to see the subtitles. A love story? *reads the plot* Love it. The actors? *checks the cast* Yes, two of my favorite South Korean actors, both such beautiful and talented human beings. The decision has been made - I'm watching this!

I have a thing for love stories set in the 90's or the early 00's: how the set design is specifically made to reminisce the flip phones, dvd's, etc. I even noticed how the filming style varied a lot in this movie, from shaky to cinematic and professional. So even the little details stood out to me. Now, the main characters and their relationship seemed to genuine. They had amazing chemistry and character development. People gave this film a lot of backlash because of the sad ending, but I found it quite contemporary. The writers of the story didn't want to sugarcoat anything. This movie depicts how relationships in the real world work: people might have a strong belief in fate and how it brings humans together, but love doesn't last forever. Personally, I was balling my eyes out and had a thought that life is, indeed, so unfair sometimes. I'm still convinced that the main male lead Hwang Woo Yeon had the biggest character development. From a stupid jock to a mature and sweet teacher, we all wish him true happiness and to look back at everything as memories that shaped him. Even the female character Hwan Seung Hee changed from someone unapproachable to a loveable and hard-working woman. In other words, the story is important, but I though that observing the main characters was more fascinating. So if you're still on the hence whether this movie should've ended on a bad note, take your time to rethink if it would've been better with a happy ending.

Overall, this exceeded my expectations. I definitely recommend watching this and myself, I'll go and rewatch this movie sometime in the near future!

The ending killed me...

So I just finished watching this movie and I'm feeling rather heartbroken. I really loved the build up of the story where we got to know the characters over the course of their lives, with their relationships changing/developing along the way.

I found the romance between the two MCs to be sweet, humorous at times, and fair in its depiction of reality. There were numerous highs and lows in the relationship between the 2 MCs where each time left me hoping that they would figure it out and grow from the experience. But one particular low led to their breaking up, and with 5 minutes left in the movie, I realized they wouldn't get back together and the FMC would really marry someone else.

While I was very happy to witness the character development and maturity achieved for both MCs through the course of their teenage years to adulthood, I desperately wanted them to be happy TOGETHER. And they *were* happy together for some time before their break up, but things got strained due to outside variables, not necessarily personal issues with each other (unhappiness due to family death, bitterness/frustrations in careers). Having seen them so in-love and sweet with each other, I really wanted them to recognize their faults/problems, grow from them, and FIGURE IT OUT when things started to get messy. It was obvious that they still loved each other in the end and so them not working through it and being together in the end really ruins the entire story for me. And call me close-minded or a romantic, but after they struggled for 10 years to be together, having been there for each other during their largest hardships, there would be a strong bond that can't be so easily erased and forgotten...

I believe that the key to a happy relationship is communication and hard work. It takes a lot of effort to make a relationship work - you won't agree about everything, you will hurt each other's feelings at times, and they will piss you off better than anyone else. BUT that's normal because love is a fierce emotion that makes us that much more sensitive to our partners. This is where hardwork comes in. That's what I needed to see in the ending. He loved her, always did. And in the end, it became clear that he loved her more than she loved him, and that was really sad to me too. She gave up on them and wasn't willing to fight for them. Thankfully he bowed out gracefully.

I'm happy that they each had that heart-to-heart at the very end where they each recognized their roles in each other's lives, but why is she the only one who gets the happy romantic ending, happiness achieved in all aspects in her life? I feel like he matured to a pretty great human being, so why didn't he get a more well-rounded resolution? I can only hope that in the ficticious world, he got his whole happy ending too.

As you have read, quite a bit bothers me about how the resolution to this story was handled. And while I enjoyed the first 3/4 of the story, this ending will prevent me from watching the movie again.
