This movie follows Geng Geng, a slightly awkward but adorable first-year high schooler who feels like she's not smart enough to be at the prestigious Zhen Hua High School. On the first day, she happens to meet her future deskmate, the brilliant Yu Huai. When put together, their names make the Phrase Geng Geng Yu Huai or "Take to the heart." Although they bicker at first, they soon form a strong friendship. They all become good friends with their classmates and have a strong bond with their teacher, Zhang Ping.

My heart wanted to burst

My heart wanted to burst just within minutes of watching this movie! Although it may have been very successful as a drama (with these actors, etc.) the simplistic nature of this movie hit all the feels. It was pure and straight to the point. It wonderfully covered topics on youth, coming-of-age, love, family, and friendship within just a span of two hours.

This story is about a girl named Geng Geng who becomes deskmates with a boy named Yu Huai after they meet on the first day. It started with Yu Huai pointing out that his name (on the bulletin board) was next to someone called Geng Geng and together their name makes "Geng Geng Yu Huai," meaning to "take to heart." Turns out it was her that he was talking about. After becoming deskmates, they become friends and they even began taking interest in each other. Nearing graduation however, unexpected news leaves them parting ways. The story mainly follows their youth almost acting as flashbacks from present time but eventually comes full circle with them meeting once again after seven years.

Definitely recommend! In terms of the selection of actors and their acting skills, this movie was very well paired. Again, there were so many moments my heart wanted to just burst because of how cute and pure the interactions were.

I didn't get to watch the drama version which I find a good thing ..... that way I can get to enjoy this film as is without any preconception nor expectation.

Let me start off by saying that this is a very satisfying movie for me... it has it's flaws alright and I strongly feel that the ending should have been done in a better way but still I gave this a 10 because for me it was able to depict high school life so beautifully.

1. Story Is very simply told yet all the right elements were there...romances, crushes, school works, youthful foolishness...everything that make high school life both a struggle and super fun. But one thing that I love the most...the message of encouragement and hope it gives especially to those who are not currently excelling in high school that you can still be the best that you can be if you will put your heart and mind to it. Grades does not define you... it is your outlook in life that will make or break you.

I love also how the 2 teachers were portrayed differently...one without patience and the other one as someone kind and compassionate. How the way they treat students affect their lives. They can either be a Terror or an Inspiration to them.

2. Acting is excellent and the transition from youth to adulthood is perfectly portrayed.
3. Music is also good
4. Rewatch value... definitely a yes for me

Note: The only negative thing I noticed was the movement of the camera nearing the end of the film.... during the hospital scene. The camera was not steady and kinda give me a dizzying effect but other than this.... I really enjoyed this drama very much
