Never Gone (Movie)
Su Yunjin and Cheng Zheng are high school sweethearts. However, the socioeconomic difference between the two often make it difficult for them to be on the same page. Su Yunjin is a transfer student from a struggling family and Cheng Zheng is a popular, intelligent student and is a rich heir to his family's business. Cheng Zheng falls for Su Yunjin and pursues her despite their differences in economic status. Su Yunjin is much more concerned about it and often tries to distance herself from Cheng Zheng despite having feelings for him. She goes to study and live in a different city from Cheng Zheng after high school only to find him pursuing her again. After the two finally get together, they face more issues as Su Yunjin struggles financially to help support her family and her mother's hospital bills. Afraid of using Cheng Zheng for his money, she asks her ex-boyfriend for help causing the couple to fight and break up. Cheng Zheng eventually moves to America to help with his family's business showing Su Yunjin that she didn't know what she had until she lost it. Thus it begins her quest to find him again and get back together.
This movie was very cute and romantic. It was also fairly realistic. However, I did not like the ending of this movie. It was unsatisfactory and it felt like I was left hanging. There were a lot of loose ends. It is supposedly a happy ending as there are deleted scenes of them reuniting in America but it just felt as though the movie was left unfinished with the way it ended. I felt like there was a lot of miscommunication between the couple as well and that was frustrating because everything could have been solved if they talked it out more.
