★★★★★★★★★ Stars
네티즌 (Netizens) wasted no time at all ripping this movie apart, I see. Lol. Sorry but I guess I'm not going to be one of those. While I agree the movie was really rough and honestly needed a lot of buffering and the storyline was.... well... It really needs work. Lol. But, if I am 100% honest about this, I still loved it and it really did show all the crazy stuff kpop groups are put through. Even though this movie came out years ago, you can see all this happening to this day. It's really sad to see. 

Is it bad that I clicked on this because I seen Jay Park though? Haha He was such a baby in this movie. Is there anything he can't do though? He acts, sings, raps, dances, steals your woman - oof. Haha Kidding on that last part.... or am I? Dun dun dunnnnn XD Honestly I felt like this movie somewhat fit part of his life story. Fans will know what I'm talking about. 

Okay back onto the movie, there really isn't much to say about it because it wasn't bad but it wasn't... good per-say. I really liked that it told the story about what groups really do go through (even though that was NOT the movies intention). The cast was really amazing and most of the time I forgot it was actually a movie and not a documentary. X_X 
The thing is the movie was so choppy. The storyline itself had a lot of gaps and took you for a ride of trying to figure out what the hell was happening. I can't even talk about the end because I sat there the whole ending like: "Uhhh what's happening?"  Also there were a lot of times certain characters popped up and you have no idea who they are even though they are supposed to be important to the story. It was a mess. It was a hella mess but I can't rate this any less than 9 stars. No I'm not bias I love the story it told even if it wasn't meant to be the actual story. Lol

Also please know if you watch this there should be a trigger warning of suicide. Which again, plays a huge roll in what Kpop singers and groups go through. It's heart shattering.
