Hello My Teacher

Wow.

For want of a better comparison I am going to call this a Korean Buffy the Vampire Slayer; at least if the first episode is anything to go by. That was the best use of a fighting umbrella this side of The Avengers. A quick google of the show suggests "Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy" is better known as "Hello Teacher". Have a look before Korean media follows Japan's lead and the show disappears from YouTube.

Na Bori (Gong Hyo Jin) is a 25 year old woman who desperately wants to be a teacher at a high school she was kicked out of after a misunderstanding with her teachers about injuring a group of male classmates and was kicked out. After getting her GED, she rejects other job offers from other high schools and works on becoming a teacher at her old high school to work with her high school love interest, the art teacher Ji Hyun Woo (Kim Da Hyun). However, the only thing that enables her to get the coveted job is by signing a contract to essentially babysit Park Tae In (Gong Yoo), a troublemaker who attends the same high school. TaeIn, a lonely youth, quickly becomes the "jjang", or "king" of the high school, and enjoys playing mean tricks on Bori. Noh Jemma (Choi Yeo Jin) is jealous of the relationship with Bori and TaeIn, and goes out of her way to get Bori kicked out...

Whoa. This is so much better than those weird Asian guys lip synching the Backstreet Boys.
