        Chun Sung-Geun is a physical education teacher who worked at a school called Young Moon High School in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. One day, he got an offer from the high school principal to become an English teacher. He said he wanted to continue as a physical education teacher, but the school announced that it would abolish art and physical education courses to prepare students for admission to prestigious universities. So, he decided to become an English teacher to continue working as a teacher. However, the process of becoming an English teacher was very difficult and when he started his first class as an English teacher, the students were strongly opposed. Nevertheless, the principal persuaded Chun Sung-Geun and he finished the class safely. But he was sad because he loved physical education during one's time as an English teacher, so he eventually quit his beloved high school. Over time, Han Song-ah, a student of Chun Sung-Geun, was assigned to a high school in the countryside after graduating from college and becoming an English teacher. And she saw that Chun Sung-Geun was working as a physical education teacher. This movie deals with two messages efforts never betray, and we can never give up what we like. First, efforts are never worthless because Chun became an English teacher to continue his teaching career through his effort. In Korea, high school English teachers have the highest competition rate and are the most burdensome jobs among teachers because one of the subjects is English which is required high grades to enter university. Furthermore, he was a physical education teacher, so he had to study English again from scratch because the curriculum of becoming a physical education teacher and the curriculum of becoming an English teacher was completely different. For this reason, the test to become an English teacher is difficult, but the work, it shows the scene of studying with a nosebleed and shows that he tried constantly. Second, likes can't be compromised even if Chun became an English teacher and avoided being fired. When the physical education subject disappeared from school, he missed his previous job even if he was trying to become an English teacher. He also cried because he watched negative interviews of students on the air after the first class. Although he could continue to work as an English teacher, he realized that his aptitude was to teach physical education, so he seemed happy to quit school and later see him teach physical education in the countryside, feeling that he could never give up what he really liked. Perhaps if he had stayed as an English teacher, he would have made more money than in the country. Maybe it's important for us to live realistically, but I thought it was more important to do what we really like. The good thing about this movie is that he guides students as a physical education teacher even though he studies English. At the same time, I could appreciate this teacher's human side and be able to personally immerse myself in this movie because the physical education teacher went beyond simply teaching other troublemaker students, and the aspect of a dedicated teacher who also thinks and helps them with their life's career path was like the teacher's ideal type. What was regrettable was that the time spent as an English teacher and the period of resignation was too short, and there were few scenes explaining why he returned as a physical education teacher after leaving the company. The story of being a physical education teacher went too far, so the second half felt so sudden in this movie's structure. I recommend this movie to people who like human dramas, but it may be a little boring for people who treat it as literature. Therefore, I will give this movie three stars.
