    I'm not gonna lie, Korean movies aren't that good... So is this movie good "for a korean movie" or just good?

    I saw this movie 2 days ago at my local theater and it was soooo amazing! I loved it~And it was also really sad as well, especially with such strong performances from the actors and actresses, in the end even the guy sitting next to me was tearing up as well as me haha I highly recommend this movie ^^
