Cast & Credits
I didn't expect it to be so touching and good. It's a story of friendship and trust. The story has funny elements but also some sad parts.
I really liked the cinematography and how they filmed Wei Wei's story in a documentary way. They also did a good job with the Gorilla. It almost feels like a real actor.
It's my first time watching Xu Jiao. This little girl has great acting potentiel!!!
I was surprised to see Sung Dong Il playing a similar character from his drama Reply 94. It was a funny reference for those who watched this drama.
There are also some unexpected guest actors (like Joe Odagiri)
The OST is nice. "The Moon Represents My Heart" is the perfect choice for this movie.
I would recommand this to anyone who likes good movies :)
