Still dying over this movie. Look at how adorable he looks, even in that goofy haircut.
I watched it with the expectation it would be a cheesy Asian romantic-comedy… and it completely shattered that expectation within the first 10 minutes with the introduction of his best friend named Boner, because he always gets boners. Heh.
Masturbation jokes, references to Japanese porn and hentai, first love and the sincerity of youth, gorgeous cinematography and quirky camera shots and interesting story-telling techniques, urgh man. Even the little stuff, like the way he smirks and looks at her. Perfect casting, perfect capture of youth and the reality of love and ugh, so bittersweet.
Also, I am a huge sucker for boys whose eyes crinkle when they smile and white t-shirts with rolled-up sleeves. This picture is totally doing it for me.
I’m prolly completely fangirling at this point. I don’t care.
