It is a touching movie.. It allows me to think that everyone has their own story, what they have been through were not easy. This movie allows us to reflect on certain things in our life. I like how An Sen portrayed herself as a cheerful funny girl in the movie. I like how the movie was being filmed, the angle and everything.. at certain point.. its just felt so serene.

Movie rating: 7.5/10
Romance level: 7/10
