When scrappy and abrasive lawyer Kang Suk Ho is put in charge of the liquidating Byung Moon High School, he sees his own troubled past in the problematic students who live their lives with no dreams. He then offers to teach them and proclaims that he will get the five most laziest students - Hwang Baek Hyun, Gil Pul Ip, Na Hyun Jung, Hong Chan Doo, and Oh Bong Goo - accepted read moreinto Cheonha University, the most prestigious college in the country. Everyone -- including the teachers, students and the school's director Jang Ma Ri -- calls him crazy. Quirky and earnest English teacher Han Soo Jung, who believes that the purpose of education is not about getting into a good college, likewise initially objects to Suk Ho's teaching methods and motivations. But he establishes a special class for the five delinquent students, including Hwang Baek Hyun who bumps heads right away with Suk Ho, to help them prepare for Cheonha University. ~~ Based on the Japanese manga series "Dragon Zakura" by "Norifusa Mita".

Story: I thought it was interesting and different from all the dramas I have seen. It was worth my time. Since it rare that drama has plot focusing on high school student. So that was a plus! There was not much romance, but a lot of friendship. I envied the student friendship. I liked the fact that they were always there for each other :)

Acting/Cast: I thought everyone did a great read more job even the supporting character. In my opinion, there was no antagonist. Everyone did their role really well. I was able to relate to some of students and their struggle for school.

Music: The Ost was amazing! It suit the drama really well. Sometimes, I would search for the Ost and it would bring back so much memory.

Rewatch Value: I would watch it again if I have time. It was not boring at all and it was funny and cute at the same time.

Overall: I really enjoyed the the drama. I learned a lot from the drama and all the tips I have learn I am using it for school. This drama taught me that school is really important and that I have to study a lot if I want to be successful.

Another high school drama. But unlike Dream High it focuses more on studies than anything else. What I really like about God of Study is that the students actually look like high school students. The music was pretty good and fit right in the drama. As a high school student myself, this drama did make me want to actually study more. If your looking for lovey dovey dramas, this one is obviously read more not for you. Overall the drama was good and i would recommend this to high school students.

Both deal with an unconventional teacher and their methods to motivate and stimulate their rambunctious, trouble-making students into becoming hard-working, self-respecting students and members of society.

They both have something to do with rankings and school. Except God of Study has more about studying (and college/future) and Cheer Up is about happiness. But they are similar if you watch both of them. I watched both and they all the BEST!!! XD

    Loved this drama because it had friendship and not hate and revenge as the focus. More dramas like this would motivate the young students struggling to find their place in the world.Coment writers ,directors and actors on a job well done for our new generation.

    omg omg omg I don't know why but I'm shocked that Seung Ho, Hyun Woo and Ji Yeon are the same age xD Even though I knew Seung Ho was young but... I mean .... how could I forget that...

    Yoo seung Ho is great in this drama and the story is quite interesting if you're a student but I'm a little bit disapointed by this drama. I think that it's because I first watched the japanese version: Dragon zakura...

    I remember watching this when Seung Ho and Hyun Woo are not yet very popular. Now it seems like everybody knows them, especially Seung Ho. >w<
