    VII. Reception

    William Schwartz of HanCinema has given the negative remarks about the film such as - This is a movie filled with various meaningless storylines that are almost entirely undeveloped. There are no dramatic stakes. About the only reason I can think of for why Live Again, Love Again even exists is to promote its own soundtrack. Unfortunately the music is just as bad as the narrative construction. The songs are almost entirely cheesy, overly melodramatic piano riffs, played over equally clichéd visuals.

    It has scored 7.2 on Rakuten Viki, 6.5 on Mydramalist &, 4.2 on IMDB.
