it's always fun watching Korean girls fight over a guy
23 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a while ago in Asia and it also had an alternative title "Teacher vs Student". Usually I hate the way Korean girls act; though Korean actresses are some of the most beautiful women in the world, the characters they portray tend to whine and cry a lot and act totally irrational.

But the girls in this movie are smart and funny and the way they fight is freaking hysterical considering the age difference.

The only thing I didn't like about this movie is that it felt a little too long. Parts of the movie felt like it was getting too serious for a comedy, but luckily it picks up again and the ending is very satisfying!
