I watched the second movie first, and it was a real funny, yet fresh comedy so I wanted to see the first one because it's the original... The movie itself very funny, using the unusual story about a relationship between a tutor and their student, but not in an official way like in a school, college, university or something like that... Kim Ha-Neul and Kwon Sang-Woo played well as a couple in this movie, really gave a good show, especially Kim Ha-Neul, she's very funny... Actually, I think that they maybe can cut a little part of this movie because it's too long, especially in the middle, I get a little bored... But overall, it's a fresh and delightful Korean comedy... But I still love the second movie...
The story was generally about a rich rebellious guy named Ji-Hoon, who was still trying to finish high school, his parents hired a tutor named Su-Wan, a woman who came from a poor background. He fell for his tutor, some martial arts fights,a love-sick girl who is after him, his attempts for ditching the lessons, and you may generally guessed the whole story. It's a romantic comedy with some fight scenes, great visual humor and a lot of love spark, thanks to the good chemistry between Kim Ha Nuel and Kwon Sang Woo, that brought a lot of energy to the story. The romantic elements also worked because of that reason.It started slow and near the end it picked up a bit again. Overall, a funny, cute film..
The typical Korean love story with the main characters from different backgrounds. It was a nice, uplifting plot, but overall it was too much deux ex machina
