Storyline

New high-school transfer student Na-Mi comes from a small town in Jeolla Province to her new school in the capital city of Seoul. When she is nervous, her small town dialect comes out & she starts to shake. On her first day at her new school she is bullied by others. Coming to her help is a group of girls. The girls are Choon-Hwa - known for her strong sense of loyalty & excellent fighting skills, heavyset Jang-Mi - who badly wishes to have plastic surgery to get double eye-lids, Jin-Hee - excellent when it comes to spewing profanity, Geum-Ok - interested in literature, Bok-Hee - dreams of one day becoming Ms. Korea and Su-Ji - always arrogant. Na-Mi quickly becomes part of their group. When the group confronts rival girls known as Sonyeo Sidae ("Girls Generation"), Na-Mi spews curse words she picked up from her grandmother. Because of Na-Mi the girls are able to avoid a crisis. These seven girls then form their own group named "Sunny". They also vow to stay together forever. The ...

Depends...
1 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

South Korean screen writers and directors have a great quality: Their ability to jerk tears and tuck heart strings. Sseo-ni is one of those movies with such director and screen writer.

This movie is not meant for audience under a certain age. It is not because the content is not suitable for a young audience. You need to have experiences and memories in order to get the nostalgia. In the movie, present time indicates the 25-year reunion, so that put girls in their teenage years in 1987. While the audience does not have to be people in their 40's, the story does need an audience that's been out of high school for about 5-10 years, weathered by life a little, knows what it means to lose one's innocence, and how desperately one wants to catch a glimpse of that innocence one used to have.

So for the reviewers who thinks the movie is all hype, I suggest to re-watch it in a few years. This movie will be a timeless classic.
