Putting these two movies together is not coincidental. Apart of different places of filming (Brazil and The Netherlands) they have a lot things in common. Acting plot is about awaking sexual consciousness in growing up boys. They share first innocent kisses and experience overwhelming fascination towards each other. The drama turns out slightly childish and kind of cliché in a manner of further movie scenes. However, you cannot blame an ordinary teenage life which is captured here at school, summer camp and while fooling around in the lake or chilling at the swimming pool. Speaking of water, it seems to have a dual meaning and it can be perceived as a birth of something new and unusual - the beginning of uncomfortable yet tempting feeling. There’s something charming and moving in this attraction-repulsion fight that main characters are forcing with. Nevertheless, they need to face up to an inner struggle with their own identity. Only then, they’re finding a peace riding away on a (motor)bike. Together.

9 favorite Kairis moments for the lovely Jene~! Happy birthday my beautiful Jene!!! *glomps* (/^0^)/(>.< ) I hope you like this thing I made you! My Kairis feels were spewing everywhere last night while I was making it OTL I must say this is my favorite gifset I’ve ever made lol. I could stare at them all day lmao.

I was thinking about what I should make you and what would be a better gift than combining your two life ruiners?! OuO I know how much you love both Jongin, Kris, and Kairis.
