Disappointing movie about a teacher trying to motivate a student
8 December 2012 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This movie goes in a pretty much generic direction when it comes to a Korean teacher trying to help out a student that feels all alone and gets into trouble. With some romance for both characters thrown in. Which is a shame cause from the trailer, I was expecting some unexpected and yet effective drama with some good amount of humor. The humor is just really bland in this movie and the story isn't anything special. The only thing that stands out is how there are actually these types of students living in Korea so it can be relatable. The building of the bond between the student and the teacher goes in a pretty much narrow direction. I was more interested in the romance between the teacher and the next door neighbor. But that was disappointing as well. Overall this is a disappointing movie about a teacher trying to motivate a student.

3.8/10
