I found the drama really cute, the slapstick moments were great, I'll also have to say that the acting was surprisingly good, considering for most of the lead cast, this was a debut drama, and all in all I'd say it was quite a nice watch.
What was less than perfect? The story is overly simplistic and I feel that it seems unfinished, or at least unpolished. There are moments when you could just imagine how the story should really develop, but you see a very superficial and a stitch-work dialogue that just fills in redundantly in exchange.
It also feels a bit dragged on at times, but still an enjoyable drama overall.
All in all, I'd say give it a go, you'll certainly enjoy the comedy, though don't expect to get a performance of a lifetime from the actors.
This series is really best described by 3 words: funny, short& sweet.

This drama is really really funny but what only made me disappointed is they only dropped it and ended it at only 8 episodes. The story of this drama could have been better, the themes of bullying, achieving your dreams and the politics inside school could have been explored more, nevertheless, this drama was really really funny ( and genius if they gave it a try). By the way the reason why it has only 8 episodes because the ratings were low so they needed to cut it. So, yes, the ending was a disappointment. But neglecting that kind of ending, if you are looking for an enjoyable drama that can get all your stress away, this one is for you.

Lee Min Ho was super fun here.

I watched this already last year and I would love to rewatch it again for some good good laughs.
