Lessons at Silao High School, a boys school that boasts the
strictest regulations, are an endless drag... until she comes
along. Ms. Ji-Young Uhm (Sa-Rang Kim), a sexy trainee teacher,
has a perfect body and sex appeal. All the males in the school
plan various ways to win her affection. They should be preparing
for the annual school festival, but they're all occupied with
other matters. Then a scandal erupts...The three major suspects
are the school's trio of professional playboys. A particularly
strict teacher is after them. His mission: to find out who
slept with her.
speaking, I did not think that I’d enjoy this Korean
movie one bit. After all, I’m known to my friends as
a self-righteous fellow who does not tolerate anything distasteful.
And with a plot like this, how did I end up chuckling to myself
when it ended after 109 minutes?
juvenile storyline has a trainee (French!) teacher goes to
a school for probation. The good-looker attracts the attention
of many pubescent schoolboys, and thanks to an opportunity
which requires three of them to rehearse a performance for
the school’s festival, a rumor goes around that one
of the scoundrels slept with the pretty young thing.
three boys in question are surprisingly amusing: One is a
typical bad boy who is a good-looker himself, one is a typical
lecher who would stop at nothing to take a peek under a girl’s
skirt, and one is a sad guy who looks old with wrinkles after
taking medication – and he has a literally big problem,
ahem, down there, as well.
prizes for guessing which one milked the most laughs out of
setups in this mindless flick contain typical slapstick humor,
which are funny enough for the average movie viewer. Expect
awkward puberty jokes, silly toilet jokes and physical humor
which always works when one’s mind switches off to auto
mode. The cast of this Kim-Yuseong-directed movie may not
be A-list material, but Kim Sa-rang portrays the good-natured
and gorgeous teacher quite well.
is also a nice little performance at the end of the movie
which will have you tapping your feet along to the infectious
melody, as well as the cutely-choreographed dance steps nicely
complemented by the glamorous fluorescent backdrop.
this movie is not one where you’d walk away anything
with – It will not enlighten you with any newfound life
philosophy, it will not satisfy your lusty hunger for flesh,
it will not make you remember what happened in the movie after
the credits roll. What you’d be left with is how surprisingly
amusing this movie turned out to be.
This Code 3 DVD contains only a Trailer for the movie.
The disc’s visual transfer manages to have you see what’s
happening in the dark, while the audio is presented in its
original Korean soundtrack.
