I started with this drama mainly because the plot seemed interesting enough. We all know what happens in a forbidden kind of love story between student and teacher and I expected it to go the cliched way right from the beginning but Biscuit Teacher surprised me here. The relationship between Tae In and Bo Ri has been depicted with sensitivity and a lot of depth-they are like friends, each other's mentors, guides, read more siblings, parents and lovers. Beginning was extremely fun and humorous with lotsa hilarious and heart-rendering situations involving individual students. But towards the end it kind of became a drag where there was little to no substantial plot development. It was heart-breaking to see Tae In cry so much and frustrating to see Bo Ri act like a confused teenager, unsure of her feelings. However the ending totally made up for it- very sweet. If not for anything else, this drama MUST be watched for Gong Yoo's realistic portrayal of an innocent and love-struck teenager, who matures from an eccentric, unruly kid to a real man with the strength to sacrifice what's most dear to him. Great acting by Gong Hyo Jin and the supporting cast as well.

This show is foremost about love and how love chooses you. Age and station do not matter. It's also very much about growing up and having someone be on your side no matter what. I thought this show was very well acted. I loved the kids and the lessons learned through the help of Biscuit Teacher. I loved Gong Yoo and Gong Hyo Jin. Tae In fell in love with Bo Ri read more and that was it for him, end of story. This show touched my heart. It was very cute and fun. Find it on the web and watch it!

Make a Recommendation More recs (9)Recommendations

Both dramas are about a male student falling madly in love with a female teacher.
Romance is more on the taboo side about teacher x student relashionship while Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy is more about the romantic feeling of the young student.
Side stories also preventing them to be together :
- Romance : the woman's family is responsible for the boy's father suicide.
- BT&SC : the teacher is romantically involved with a co-worker, who happens to be the boy's uncle.
Recommended by nastou19
both tackle school life and the love triangle between two teachers and a student. Though Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy narrates a more serious and mature tale.

    That engagement ring from Ji Hyun Woo is the ugliest engagement ring I've seen to date. And that proposal can it even be called a proposal?

      If you don't like it and you think its stupid, then drop it. Easy peasy. There's no way they can change it since it done 9 years ago. I know its your opinion but commenting like that this drama is the worst of the worst even though some people loved it, you're just ruining it for someone like me who haven't watch it yet.

      It is listed on "" with English subs under the name "Hello My Teacher" around 4.3 GB. It might be worth checking it out. I'm currently watching this. Now I'm at 9th episode.

    One of my most favourite romantic comedies. There are so many cute moments, that you can't count:) My favourite Gong yoo's role too. One thing to mention is also the OSTs, if there are 20 in it, they are all nice and really give a great atmosphere to the drama. If you love romcoms, watch it, and if you don't watch it anyway:) It's a great drama:)
