In this comic love story, a female elementary school teacher and one of her girl students become rival lovers after a handsome man starts teaching in the same rural school. An unsophisticated teacher, Yeo Miok (played by Yeom Jeonga), has a crush on Gwon Sangchun (singer-turned-actor Lee Jihun), a newly appointed, handsome fine art teacher some years younger than her. She has to compete with a formidable opponent - Go Minam (Lee Seyeong), her cute but strong-willed student. Though with a certain twist in the end, the film faithfully follows the conventional order of laughter, confrontation, tears, and reconciliation, like most of its love-comedy predecessors that usually seek happy-ending. The story does not perplex the audience, but is interesting and persuasive enough to cause profound emotion among them in the end. One of the notable aspects of this movie is the superb acting of Yeom Jeonga, who attained stardom after playing a femme-fatale in "The Big Swindle" (2004). Prior to the screening of the movie, it had become one of the most longed-for movies largely because it was believed to be a sequel to "Teacher Kim Bong Du" (2003), a story between a corrupt teacher and his troublemaking students in a rural school and made by the same director, Jang Gyuseong.
