Clarkdale44 Well... The most heart tearing movie... Still i am impressed the way both Kwon Sang-Woo and Lee Bo-Young performed. At first i was ignoring it just because of some facts but then i thought i should at least try and i am glad i did.

I will give this movie 9/10 (For such a great storyline.)

Ahmed Esaam (Y) SoOoOoOo Sad I Love It

meggi this movie is reproduction a Bollywood movie "Tomorrow May Never Come", the story-line is practically the same. I like very much korean movies and dramas, but if someone watched the production bollywoods then he will know how this movie end it's similar to temptation of wolves sometimes:))

Ernest Even after watching the movie for several months, even thinking back about it make tears roll in my eyes. The tragic story of the star-crossed lovers is cliche but it feels classic here, thanks to the impressive performance of the three main cast. The great story-telling method which plays with different perspective is definitely something I admire very much. I'm a film student and this movie inspires me greatly. I hope I can produce something as wonderful as this in the future.

Jhu the story is really good..they showcase the other side of unselfishness of LOVE.. thumbs up to the cast for making this possible.hope to see more quality movie like this.!

Ki A disclaimer should go out that I’m not much of a fan of Asian tearjerkers in general, which probably skews this review from the get go. With that said, I have craved a warm, intimate film that could possibly draw out emotions and even *gasp* tears. “More Than Blue” is without a doubt a film made to elicit such emotions, but its success or failure lies more so with the viewers’ temperament for such films. Similar to those slick Korean music videos for popular ballads, “More Than Blue” has the appealing backdrops, attractive performers, and pulls out a lot of the expected clichés of its genre.

In “More Than Blue,” music radio show producer K (Sang-woo Kwone) is in love with roommate and close friend Cream (Bo-young Lee). Conversely, Cream is in love with K and has been so for many years. Yet, whenever opportunities arose to express their feelings K would always place up a formidable barrier. K would frequently Cream “I like you” but never “I never love you”.

The reason K has kept Cream at arm’s length is due to a heavy secret that he carries inside. K has known for many years that he suffers from terminal cancer and he doesn’t want Cream to ever become reliant on him. His desire to secure Cream’s future goes to extreme degrees when she starts to show interest in another man. That other man is highly regarded Ju-hwan Cha (Beom-su Lee), a dentist with an impeccable reputation & character. K, after researching Ju-hwan’s background, realizes he would make an ideal husband for Cream and makes the heartbreaking decision to push for their marriage even though he loves Cream with all of his heart.

By now you should hear the violins playing not so subtly in the background. In the movie’s defense, “More Than Blue” could have been overbearing, but thanks to the movie’s clean visuals and the actor’s desire not overplay their characters the movie was watchable. Or was it the actor’s inability to overplay their characters that lessened the impact of the film? You won’t find any dud performances in “More Than Blue,” but you won’t find any performances or characters that takes your breath away. That right there is a crucial missing element for me when it comes to emotional films that hopes to connect with your heart. Sang-woo Kwone plays K with a reserved, low-key tone that teetered on robotic at times. Kwone’s counterpart, Bo-young Lee makes a nice rebound from her hard to watch performance in “Once Upon a Time” and actually brings some spunk to her character in the film’s first half. When moments required more histrionics from Bo-yeong Lee this is where she noticeably came up short.

The story itself reinvents the familiar storyline of undeclared love found in such classic tearjerkers like “Christmas in August.” While the story moves along fairly smoothly during the first half, the screenplay resorts to many unneeded tricks and sub-plots in the second half. The sub-plot involving K and Je-na was predictable from the first time they met, but once it finally plays out onscreen you can’t help to wince at the awkwardness of its execution. The film also tacks on a succession of surprises that fails to elicit any “wows,” while failing to provide a smoke screen for the movie’s stiff screenplay and mediocre performances.

Don’t let this reviewer deter you from checking out “More Than Blue,” especially if you enjoy melodramatic films intended to draw out a rain of tears. If so, you’ll likely enjoy it more than I did. On a positive note, “More Than Blue” did make me long to watch the extremely well crafted “Christmas in August.” For myself, I did find “More Than Blue” pleasing to the eyes, but a noticeable sterileness to the film created a barrier that prevented the movie from making any meaningful connection.

melek i love asian movies or dramas. they r sooo romantic and has meanings for me. i really wanna watch this movie as much as possible. i cant wait to see it in english subbed.
