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!

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.

Both stories are older woman / younger man romances.
In Biscuit Teacher Star Candy it's a student / teacher relationship and in Ruk Sutrit it's a teachers assistant and a boy she tutors who fall in love. Also in both the male lead starts out as immature rich brat only to grow and change because of the female lead.

Similar setting when student falls in Love with his teacher.

      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:)

    dropped after 3rd episode, i understand that 2nd female lead has to be a pathetic, clingy cunt without any self-respect, but there should be some limits, this one was way too much for me

    I can't wait to watch this drama because in real life the main guy guy (Gong Yoo) is older than the teacher (Gong Hyo jin) by one year so the age difference wont disturb me.
