Cast & Credits
This is a total different performance of him; every performance is totally different though.
Talk of the type of teachers I hate the most transforming in my most respected type! Talk of honesty and pure intentions winning over people's hearts!! Talk of adorable kids and a teacher who shut himself off but those children broke his defenses!! Talk of my 2-year experience in teaching elementary students!! That's the film..
I cried buckets; I just couldn't. I don't know if it's because of Cha Seung Won, being a teacher or the greatness of the film but I was so touched.
The song the kids sing at the end of the film then the ending track are so emotive. A must watch film!!
