    It's a pop culture phenomenon. A modern day cult classic off-beat comedy film with no over the top side plots, just simply relying on the main plot of life in school, this is actually kind of comedy where there is no malice of provoking dilemmatic thoughts, it's light hearted just like ace ventura but heart touching at the same time. There is actually nothing bad about or mediocre about this film, be it the opening credits or the soundtrack, this is one of the greatest comedy films ever.

    It's heartbreaking, it's funny sometimes and more often it's saddening. Depicting the true story behind Gwangju, this gives the full insight to the modern korean history. It's joyous yet painful at the same time. A classic by Jang Hoon.
