Su-wan is a sophomore in college, and she works part-time as a tutor to cover her tuition since her father lost his job and started a small chicken eatery. Tutoring is a tough job, especially since basket cases are more curious about what's underneath her skirt (The mirror is the most commonly employed device in satisfying this curiosity.) than what's in the books. Again for the zillionth time, she couldn't hack it. read moreIt's been only 7 days since she started teaching her new student, and already she's been sacked. "No tutoring, no tuition," declares her mother to make sure she understands she has no choice. So Su-wan is back on the market, and meets her next challenge -- the impossible, the unconquerable and the unreformable Ji-hoon.
He's the eldest son of a wealthy upstart. At school, he's a well-known fighter and the king of troublemakers. And what's more, he's repeating his senior year for the third time. Ji-hoon, who boasts such an impressive school record, becomes a very unwilling student of Su-wan, who's the same age but in college. She is flabbergasted by his careless manners and speech, and his incessant smoking during the lesson. Extremely tempted to quit, Su-wan is determined not to lose this job since she doesn't want to disappoint her Mom. Yes, she'll bring him down on his knees and under her control, so as it may seem as she tries to convince herself, but Ji-hoon tramples on her courage with his bluntness:
"Hey babe, just sit over there for two hours and then leave. I'll make sure you get paid." "Oh¡¦ sure, why not¡¦"
That's how their lessons began. And from then on, things started happening one after another.

This by far was one of my favorite movies ever. It is very funny, and Kim Ha Neul was born to play her character. I could not stop laughing at the end and you will see why and there was some sweet moments where i would have to pause the video and take a deep breath. Also if i havent mentioned it before you see Kwon Sang Woo SHIRTLESS i mean if read more that doesn't make you want to jump and watch the movie I dont know what will.

i specifically watched this show coz of sang woo and gong yoo. soo hot but sang woo looked too old to be play a high school kid. ha neul did her best too though she couldve been given more balsy characteristics to match sang woo. i was looking forward to the falling in love moments but it looked generic how fast it happened and i got disappointed. the show had funny moments read more and the last scene with kicking balls is awsome too.

The chemistry of both actors in both movies were awesome, so watch it out for funny romance story.

    I have it a 9.5/10 because I didn't walk into the movie expecting it to change the winds or make it rain — I just wanted something nice and easy on the heart to watch before bed. And this is exactly what this movie was. A great light watch! I didn't stop smiling from the beginning to the ending~ weird, even in the awkward scenes I was either smiling or chuckling. Also Gong Yoo is adorable in this! & the male lead Kwon Sang Woo looked like Jin — I noticed! (Seokjin -BTS <333 )

    Bottom line is— watch it! It'll make you happy!

    I loved this movie and can't believe I haven't added it to my list yet!.
    I also can't believe it's got the same pairing as it does in Almost Love! (Kim Ha Neul & Kwon Sang Woo) Love these two as actors!
