Just love it!
18 November 2015 | by xingzhichenSee all my reviews

Don't care about the trend. All you need to know... It tells a very sweet love story with a happy ending. You will see the most handsome man (don't like the hair style.) and the cutest girl in this movie. Why do we have to worry that the movie is far from the reality? This movie pulls you away from the reality for 2hours, sometimes it is the best thing about watching a movie. Have you ever watched the movie and imagined that you were some one in the movie? Well, I bet this one will help you a lot. Also, if there is a guy looks like Yamashita in the movie, Who will really care about the story line? Someone thinks he does not have enough expressions throughout the movie. I would say, you need to take a close look. His expression is good enough to tell where his heart is. Really enjoy Yamashita's in this movie. He did a great job!
