Sheng Huai Nan is a name deep in Luo Zhi's heart for a very long time. He is like a ray of light to Luo Zhi who cannot help but look up and follow him. The carving on the rooftop that said "Luo Zhi loves Sheng Huai Nan" represents Luo Zhi's declaration of love that she could never say out loud. Luo Zhi was looking forward to starting anew only to realize that Sheng Huai Nan is in the same university as her. The two gradually grow close, but don't dare to express their feelings. When real-life pressures come one after another, what will become of this secret love? (Source: ChineseDrama.info) ~~ Adapted from the web novel "Unrequited Love" (暗戀·橘生淮南) by Ba Yue Chang An (八月長安).

So i guess this movie is an adaption from drama unrequited love, cause they used the same name and the same story. Overall i do like this movie. How they wrapped this so perfectly into the story. If you already watch the drama i guess you already know about the detail, but eventhough this is the movie, everything just fit to the place. There’s no unanswered question in here. And the chemistry between the lead is strong too, and their act is amazing. The changing phase from their childhood into high school and university is perfectly written too. The character is perfectly written

catch some zzz's instead of wasting your time

Wow. Wow. So that was super boring.

Prefacing this by saying I have not watched a single one of those limitless unrequited love remakes, so this story is fresh to me. I have to say, not a great way to be introduced to the world of “unrequited love”s.

First of all, what unrequited love? I sense no angst. I feel no desperation, no longing. This movie is practically void of any emotion. I felt none of the raw feelings, the nervous excitement and the crushing experiencing of liking someone afar watching this. To me, emotion is practically necessary to the formula of a nostalgic Chinese youth movie, and My Blue Summer is missing this essential ingredient, which makes it hard to care.

The characters are so bland, they taste like sawdust. I have no idea what kind of people luo zhi and sheng huai nan are from watching this movie. Especially luo zhi, she was so inconsistent; I couldn’t tell if she was supposed to be shy or fiery, cowardly or brave. Both leads were almost as one dimensional as lee jong suk in W. The acting was mediocre, which probably contributed to the horribly boring characterization.

Maybe their chemistry will save us! Nope. I don’t know what I expected, seeing as the characters were boring and the acting was meh, but there is no chemistry. Other than a few cute domestic moments, I was left wondering exactly what led these two together and why they were even together. What do they even like about each other? Who knows. I bet they don’t even know. Acting: kind of bad, writing: even worse.

The ending was so crappy I have to laugh. They stirred up so much drama only for about 0.01% of it to get resolved. I will say part of the reason is probably because they tried to fit a drama length story into a movie (if they’re going to keep adapting dramas into movies, please. Please cut. things. out. of. the story. I haven’t watched a single movie adaptation of a drama that went well). This also lent itself to a few other issues, namely an underdeveloped plot that basically went nowhere.

If you really have an hour and forty minute to spare, I suggest you take a nap.
