5/10: I won’t lie, I really hated this movie. I didn’t understand how did everything progresses and there as no moral… or anything… The guys were just random even though the second was cute and looked a little like Lee Hong Ki. The girls seemed lost too…

Trailer OR Part 1:
10/10 Do you guys know “A Walk to Remember”?? I have loved that movie, and this one even more. These two stories are very similar. It is the kind of movie from which you cannot, not shed tears. It’s so touching and so sad! The major difference between these two movies is that in “A Millionaire’s First Love”, there’s a childhood love story (which Asian people love to put into the movies or dramas). And then, car accident, and then the guy becomes rich and arrogant… (typical Korean drama-ish)
This movie… is really fantastic. No other words to describe it.

But what happens when he drops out of her life just when she needs him most?
7/10 Humm, it’s been quite a long time I’ve watched this, but I remember my first impression: OH MY GOD!! IT’S THE ACTOR FROM WONDERFUL LIFE! I don’t know why, but I never had the feeling that this drama was Korean… Maybe the movie was 15 times shorter than a usual Korean drama. Anyways, I greatly appreciated this movie. It was fun & funny. It’s not frustrating and you don’t have time to be bored…
This movie has nothing out of the ordinary. Two people hate each other when they first met. Then, they fell in love with each other, but they can’t be with each other for some reason… The plot was so-so, but at least the acting was good. There were some scenes that were really funny and there’s one part I loved: where they fell into the water.
It’s an interesting movie… not the best ever… but not bad neither
