The story is about unemployed young man Do Hyeon (played by Im Ji Kyu) who unexpectedly becomes a taekwondo teacher at the school. I like the stories written by Yoo Bo Ra (“Just Between Lovers”, “Youth”, “Yeonu’s Summer”), they show complicated emotional life of her characters, and at the same time they give us a hope that comes from within a human being, from his power of life and rationality. This is the same here.

The narration has a subtle humor, particularly in Do Hyeon’s philosophy of avoiding beating and hitting. He isn’t tall and that’s why there is no chance for him to win in taekwondo. Also the way of filming shows the funny side of the story. The director doesn’t follow the stereotypes so we are not boring of cliché.

I like the acting, especially short scenes with Choi Min Soo and the kid, the actor has really amazing skills to seduce the audience. Also Im Ji Kyu very well portrayed funny, amusing main lead.
It’s optimistic story with positive message build with small pieces of life. I highly recommend.
