Ye Rim, is the pretty class president. She looks perfect from all angles with her attractive appearance and top grades. Once she notices that something strange is going on, she takes action to uncover the mysteries of her school.
The teacher was so creepy but charming! I loved his character, even though I also wanted to stay very far away from him and protect the students from him. I really enjoyed this drama and even though the ending was a TINY bit predictable, I would still rewatch this one if I wanted a bit of creepy to liven up my night :D
I liked the acting, and they behaved pretty much read moreappropriately for high school kids. Making mistakes, dealing with insecurity, putting up a front to cover up insecurity, all things I did in school and can relate to.
I don't know if this counts as spoilers but if it does I'm very sorry! This next part I really, really liked and wanted to talk about so I tried to keep it vague.
The third girl was my favorite, the writer. She wrote her fantasy, something I think all of us has done before and then realized how horrible it is in real life to have that kind of person with you. It says a lot about YA romance and how the perfect guy is sold to us in those types of books and tv shows. It also shows how much she doesn't know about writing characters that have more depth than the shallow, shiny parts. I feel like if I had seen something like this when I was 14, I wouldn't have had such crazy expectations in high school. I partially blame hormones and the fact guys at that age were annoying as heck, but I wasted too much time trying to be perfect so I could 'earn' my perfect guy and that just isn't reality. I know now how silly I was, but it was fun to see that in a character on the show.
nightmare teacher is a very mediocre drama which had great potential to be much better.
whole plot is good, interesting but felt little repetitive. pace of plot is not slow, but somehow i felt bored in midway and wanted to skip to end. teacher character totally reminds me of doraemon who gives gadgets which get misused by students because of their greed. there is no end for it. whole school is in read morechaos. Grrrr......he plays this game, untill kim so hyun takes a stand and helps others.
bad things i noticed here which disappiointed me
1. no proper closure for all characters - students , teacher, and who is that little girl in last episode.
2. very short screen space for kim so hyun. my sole reason to watch this drama. i wish they could skip a students character and put her in that place. there would have been enough time to find what is all this fuss about.
acting is good. i am really tired of praising kim so hyun. she brilliantly pulls this drama out of little time she got. her acting is very believable. i just wish i could see her with different hairstyle
i got serious trouble with uhm ki joon. he is just stuck with same face and same smile. i am so tired of watching him here and in Ghost.
i definetly wont rewatch this. and i am not really sure if i should recommend this one.but if you are kim so hyun fan, you should probably make time for this. also plot is not really bad. this drama could be your interesting watch
To summarize, "Nightmare Teacher" is about mysterious things happening in a Korean school.
There are 12 episodes of which 10 focus on five students, two episodes for each student, and the last two episodes focus on solving what is happening. Dude, what's going on in the mind of such a director!
The two main characters, Ye-Rim and Sang-Woo deserve special attention for the incredible performances. Intelligent, funny and considerate, on the part of the girls, Ye-Rim and his performance also deserve the highlight, as was most of the female cast.
Unfortunately "Nightmare Teacher" sinned in the plot. Each of the students who signed a contract with the teacher had very fickle wishes, after all who signs a blood contract? (Oops, it was a bad spoiler). The plot was a little inconsistent, especially in episode eight, when the boy who signed the contract seemed to be recovering and being independent then suddenly, for no reason, it "deteriorated" again in its former state. (Aish!)
In summary, "Nightmare Teacher" is reasonably above average enough to watch, but I'll soon warn you that the ending is rough.
This drama is deep as expected. Worth watching even though it's strange. It was like a Japanese strange movies that you're expecting to be scary but not. I don't know how to explain it just you know. XD
Even after watching Nightmare Teacher ( I love it) I'm totally fangirling (is fangirling the right word cause I can't explain it with a different word xD <3) xD about your thoughts and what you guys think about the ending!!
I interpreted it as a missing scene from the beginning, like he was actually the first one to step into the counseling room and he was the only one who truly knew what was going on in the class. That the camera revealed the "truth" within the dream, hence why the pictures of the teacher came out blurry. But he had to act like he didn't know because otherwise, the contract would have been broken.
but how do you explain why when ye rim and sang woo checked the "contracts" folder sang woo's contract wasn't there?? it can't be that it only contained the contracts of the people who failed because do do hee's one was already in the folder before she disappeared... and also sang woo got the camera even before the whole class saw the substitute teacher for the first time. unless sang woo had the same thing happening to him as with ye rim, and he completed his contract and time went back to before he met the teacher, just like how ye rim found out that it's a nightmare and when she snapped out of it she was brought back to right before she met the teacher.
Haven't finished watching this yet but man what kind of creepy teacher is he? It's like he's some kind of soul-hungry demon preying on his students and waiting to eat them...or maybe my imagination just went off the hook :P lol
