I am Sam (3)

This is one of the kdrama boxsets that I bought on my last shopping trip to KL. Hmmm...was that on June, July last year? :) I just had the oppurtunity to watch it last week after I really really told myself not to buy any new boxset. Gosh! I saw yesterday that East of Eden boxset are available now in stores here, haha if I had enough money then I would have bought it then and there and after my visit to the bank I told myself not to go to any cds shop, cause I don't have time to watch it now...my flight is tomorrow!




Sinopsis of the drama - its about this timid and 'weird' teacher, Jang Ee San (Yang Dong Geun) (I'm not sure how to describe his character in a nutshell, it's like a 'nerdish' but inappropriate for a teacher) chance encounter with a spoiled mobster's daughter in the street. Since she seems lost and desperate he asks her if she needs any help. He let her stay in his small apartment for the night since she says she can't go home because her father was abusive and come morning before he went to teach, left her his phone number if she got into any trouble. She did come into trouble and end up in police station, he come to bail her out. Then she said something unbecoming for a girl (huh! its alright for a male to curse is it?) and get a slap from him.



Yoo Eun Byul (Park Min Young) being the spoiled daughter of a highly dangerous mob leader, though her father was so temperamental and scary to others, he never raised a hand to Eun Byul. So she was rather shocked to get this treatment, it was a whole new experience! When she did come home, she get a tongue lashing from her father which stop when she said she wants to study again, but not a private tutor at home. She wants to study in the school where Ee San was teaching.



The father then brought Ee San to his mansion and informed him of Eun Byul's decision. At first, Ee San decline no matter how much money was offered, he don't want to associate himself with the mob but then his life was threatened, so he had to accept to teach Eun Byul. What I don't understand is why he forced Ee San to live in the same house as Eun Byul? It's not as if after school hours he gave her another private lesson...



Eun Byul ends up in Ee San class then with her father's influence. It turns out his class was the 'most problematic' class in the school. Being the new student she was harassed but she stood up on her own. Her alterations with the school badboy, Chae Moo Shin (TOP from Big Bang), just when she entered the school's ground was also of not help.







Then there is some kind pulling thing between Eun Byul and Shin So Yi (Son Tae Young), the art teacher. His romantic relationship between him and So Yi was just started, then Eun Byul came into the picture and he had to rearrange their date to fit Eun Byul's schedule and he can't tell the truth to So Yi.





So Yi always confiding in Sun Ho about her problems with Ee San…




and her worries over the closeness of Ee San and Eun Byul came into fruitition. They have taken a liking to each other as time passes.



I was laughing my side off when So Yi came to visit Ee San at their house and that time Eun Byul's father and Mr. Kim (his right-hand man) was also checking up on him. So to cover up, he introduce the father as his father and Mr.Kim as his younger brother. He really took the oppurtunity to bully back Mr.Kim who can't do anything since he's pretending to be the younger brother.




All of the class members were really adorable. The class's monitor who sprouts out latins with almost every line he speaks, the 2nd place nerd, the Bin's trio, Sa Kang, Moo Shin, etc!





I also like Eun Byul's classmate So Kang, she was aloof at first but slowly opens up to Eun Byul cheery attitude and I think she likes Moo Shin who at first like Eun Byul. What I like about her character is that she doesnt try to force her affection on Moo Shin but let their relationship evolves on their own.



It’s a pretty light-hearted and funny drama to watch. He was such a incompetent teacher before Eun Byul came into the picture, but afterwards he started getting close and personal with each of his students and started to understand the meaning of a real teacher (not just standing infront of the class, dribbling with facts). Yang Dong Geun is really perfect as this kind of 'quirky' teacher. Now I'm interested to watch his other drama such as Dr. Gang, i was curious if the "quirkiness" is truly him or he is just get into the character. Yeah, it was a put off before cause he's not that good looking ^_^


Park Min Young (Eun Byul) is so cute and adorable, her acting was not over, the sweetness not nauseating, also looking forward to her newest drama with that skinny actress (cant remember her name).

Lee Min Ho!!! Even before BBF I still believe I would find him cute ^_^
The 3 men for Eun Byul. Park Jae Jung is the hottest... though I hate his weak character in YAMD
