Cheer Up movie review

Does not match the promised premise

‘Cheer Up’ has the potential to be a good youth drama with great characters, especially as they tell the story of a cheerleader at a university, which is rare in dramas. While the plot is initially well-developed, the story begins when the cheerleading group is nearly shut down due to an earlier unlucky prophecy and controversy.

Jung-woo, the captain, tries his best to save them all until he finally meets Hae-yi and Sun-ho, who join the team. The team twists and turns continue as a series of past events and horrors repeat, at this point a mystery begins to emerge and they are forced to solve it. At least, that’s to be expected as the series progresses.

However, there is a lull so long that one forgets that the existence of the mystery exists. This is because the focus of the story overlaps with the love story between the members, especially the love triangle between Hae-yi, Jung-woo and Sun-ho which is boring and also unpleasant.

Contrary to the title and premise, this film does not show proper cheerleading scenes. It only manifests itself spectacularly at first, even if you notice it during practice, it just repeats the same movements over and over. ‘Cheer Up’ is supposed to be a fun and motivating movie for young people, but what they feel is just the feeling of wanting to go quickly to the end of the story or stop in the middle and not care about the stories of the young people. How will the character end?

Although the latter will happen in 2019, it’s the setting for ‘Cheer up’. In addition, the incident with a member of Theia has become the starting point of the biggest mystery in the film. Especially, when the incident repeats itself and targets Do Hae Yi as a victim.

In the first few episodes, the existence of a mystery that needed to be solved succeeded in capturing the interest of the viewers. However, as the story progresses, it turns out that the mystery presented is very bad. of the story, however, if we think about it, this movie doesn’t seem to need that spice of mystery in it.
