A school is a smaller version of the world, a simulated space and a jungle in which everyone is pursuing different goals. Though sometimes fun and at other times hell, it is undoubtedly a place where we grow up. Like in a society of adults, there are invisible hierarchies, laws and wars in schools, too, but the moment we get rid of them all, we become friends. We come to like people read more without a particular reason and help others without any preconditions. We also provoke, take risks, and put everything at stake without hesitation. But even after a long time, we vividly remember all those things even though we forget what we had learned from textbooks. People of that time are our everlasting wounds and peers. This drama teaches a whole lot of valuable lessons and reveals a hidden track of our life.

Some funny moments. Light romance comedy. Silly at times, but it works here. Park Min Young's break out work, and it is easy to see why. She is the master of the side glances and wide eyed expressions. All the other characters are interesting too. I had trouble predicting who would end up with who, can you do better?

Both dramas are about school life but I Am Sam is more focused on the relationship between a student and teacher.

    Pity the Jang Yi San because of his kindness make him cat and shoe, the Eun Byul also does not forgive lives up to him.
    The cake cherry is due to the ASTOC level of the teacher, associated with the impossibility of not being able to put out his feelings of fury and anger, make him a very comical character, people can not laugh at those guys and mouths that he does when Frustrated or angry, this leaves this drama even more romantic comedy face, we will see what will be the end of this hilarious story of love, comedy and drama.
    From the ep10 we enter the final phase, I particularly think the best part, after all the action is rolling loose, finally appeared the mafia rivals, and the climates of the plot. Following as always Eun Byul tinkering with his over the ang Yi San, the teacher's novel is more and more shaken, the end is still uncertain, much can happen yet.
    And begins the 13th ep, is not that stupid Eun Byul? Try to escape in a place that can not even get in. Sincerely after 13 eps that touch of the teacher's cell phone is starting to be annoying (rsss).
    And give Akon a sound in that little bar!
    Ep14: It's going to be cool like that far away, to feel disgusting with seaweed, it had to be patricinha even, 2 hours to buy a tiara, girls.
    Seriously, how can a car crash make it impossible for the car to be driven? My impression or rolled a shit there at the mall !? I could throw in the trash a necklace of those. It has to be very muggle to do this, but saw how fate is fair tried to get rid of the necklace and look at what gave ...
    Flour war? (Kkkk) Tense moment at the first lunch with the future mother-in-law and father-in-law.
    Ep15: Notice every time the teacher picks up his cuts are asymmetrical and in the same place.
    Has anyone else seen a tiny mosquito passing the camera on this ep? The coarsest thing is to wear pants under the skirt, costume designer missed ugly. Please in exchange for money, more cliché thing. What we learned from watching this drama is that taxis are rare to find in Korea. It's just a CDF to say "I love you" on the last day of school. I do not know why but I remembered Curling with the frying pan scene. LOL
    Well done the escape scene.
    Ep16: Tell me one thing, can 3 fit in a train toilet? The mob guy must be myopic so he does not see 3 people there, if that's possible.
    They played well at the end, but I did not like it very much, I did not find it bequeathed, I got a lot of loose ends, those 4 years and the final mystery made I Am Sam lose points.

    I don’t remember when, but I saw this on TV long time ago, This is a pretty easy drama to watch nothing much serious about it, enjoyable.
    P.S. I skipped most of the drama, watched students scenes, and some of the leads.

      Idk. I find him kinda like awkward. Like I can't really place a hold on how he really is like, personality wise. He's just a oddball to me, also, I think he has some kind of sensory problems or something, with the way he's always using his hands so awkwardly with his button and neck and back or whatever.
