Like Someone in Love is a great story although the Story Summaries are a little off.

Although the i liked this movie i was a little disappointed as the once you are finally getting into the movie it suddenly has a very abrupt end. It makes you feel like that is not the ending and that there is still much more of the story that could follow. To me it felt like i had watched a few episodes of a drama and then i could not watch the rest.

I gave this drama a pretty high rating purely on the fact that it does have a good story line and i was very happy watching it. I wanted the main characters to grow their bond closer. I only wish there was more, I would love to see this made into a drama series and have a longer story line and better ending.

I would recommend this Movie to people who wish to pass time or want to watch something that has a feeling of hope, promise and feeling that you can find a friend in any sort of person. I would not say don't watch it as it ends fast and leave so much unsaid, but some people may feel disappointed in the ending like i was. I still am glad i watched it and hope others feel the same.

Also if you are not the person who can stand arguments and sad stories then i advise you not to watch this move as it has a few areas like that.

Dramatic story, really gets you interested in the characters and the mystery of what exactly is going on and where it's going. Like another reviewer however I find the ending leaves you hanging… usual you can work out your own solution but there's very little to go on given the bizarre ending.
