The ending scenes of the movie have shown that part two of the film will be definitely made as Yura said she is not sure if that’s the end of her love story and many questions like Will Tian ever return or where was he could be answered in the second part.

Tersanjung The Movie Review

Overall as a love story, the film was very basic. Many love stories like these are already made and this wasn’t any special. If you love watching drama then this film will keep you hooked to your chair till the end. It is definitely a one-time watch film. The storyline in between gets kind of boring and unnecessarily expanded. Many scenes were added that were not necessary. All the characters have definitely played a very good role.

The music in the film is very appreciable. If you love watching drama plus intense love stories then you should totally go for this one. If you are not a love story kind of person this movie isn’t for you. Yuri is seen in a very good appreciable role. You will also see sudden Twists in the plot that you never expected of.

The movie is available on Netflix to watch.
