(SPOT.ph) Admit it. You’ve seenTo All The Boys I’ve Loved Before more than once. There is no shame in confessing. Rom-com-a-holics everywhere have been awakened, thanks to Netflix’s new release from this genre, with most agreeing that To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (TATBILB) may be its best one yet. Ever since the film debuted on August 17, the Internet has been gushing over Lara Jean (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo)'s romance. Here are 10 reasons to rewatch TATBILB one more time.
A Great Soundtrack
Good music puts the audience in the right mood for anticipation, joy, and romance. You were probably rooting for Lara Jean with drums and percussion music playing in the background as she mustered the courage to tell Peter, “Let’s do this!” You were gloating during their first public appearance as a couple to fun dance-electronica tunes with “Boyfriend” by Confidence Man. You were waiting with bated breath during the hot tub scene to the sexy strains of “Lovers” by Anna of the North. The ending “Cool Out” by Matthew E. White featuring Natalie Prass brought you back to the '80s on a feel-good high. And of course, the movie’s piece de resistance, Lauv’s “I Like Me Better,” perfectly captures the sugar-sweet taste of young love. Don’t we all wish our lives were playing out to a soundtrack?

The Nostalgic-But-Stylish Fashion
Prior to filming the series, TATBILB authorJenny Han made a mood board of Lara Jean’s style for the producers, which she describes as “'60s meets '90s meets Asian streetwear.” (Fun fact: Filipina blogger Tricia Gosingtian was one of her fashion pegs!) She felt strongly about the outfits being crucial to understanding the character—and rightly so! Lara Jean’s vintage chic outfits take you back to the '90s with its Clueless-style plaid skirts, striped turtlenecks, platform combat shoes, denim jackets, and chokers.
