KeikoWorld Got this movie, been watching it few times already without subs T_T didnt really understand what they said, but Keiko did a good job with her role! .<

Ki I also watched this on a flight (Detroit to Seoul via Delta). I did watch a couple of films before this movie, because The English title "I Just Wanna Hug You" really did nothing for me. After running out of films to watch I decided to give this one a try. I came away really impressed with the film! Even more impressive is that the film is based on a true story. A lot of films in this type of genre come off as cheesy, but this film felt so genuine. Keiko Kitagawa & Ryo Nishikido did really nice jobs making their characters more touching, without overacting. A film that I think you could compare "I Just Wanna Hug You" is with "Josee, Tiger and the Fish," except the male characters took different routes by the end of each respective film. If you do get the chance to watch this movie, don't let the bleh English title scare you away.

RINI I saw this movie on my flight from Jakarta to Aceh. I love this movie, good one. I just found out that this based on a true story .. Worth watching. Love Ryo and Keiko :)

RINI I saw this movie already on my flight back to Surabaya. I just found out that this based on a true story. Good movie, I love it. Love Ryo Nishikido

Brian Singapore This is the best movie of the year 2014! I was so moved by the truth story and even watch the documentary! Treasure what you have cause life if a gift and it could be gone just in second and for all the driver in the world include me, Please drive carefully and responsibly!
