My Tutor Friend
Ji Hun (Kwon Sang Woo)
Su Wan (Kim Ha Neul)
After her father is fired by his company senior college student Su-wan has no other alternative than to start giving private lessons, in order to pay for her school fees. However, all her students turn out to be extreme cases that make teaching them an unbearably difficult task. Therefore Su-wan wants to give up this source of extra income after just one week, but after her mother's continued reminder that she won't be able to pay her school fees unless she goes on with her teaching job, she decides to give it a try again.
During her second attempt at part time teaching, she encounters millionaire son Ji-hun. This student is frequently causing lots of trouble at school, behaves rude & arrogantly and also smokes during all lessons. Su-wan is at the brink of quitting her job for good, but since she has a commitment towards her mother and family she tries to get the troublesome student onto the right track.

What I Think:
The movie is just average; I don’t know why everybody raves too much about it, I guess most of them haven’t seen the movie in its entirety. Or maybe they just love the movie because Kwon sang Woo is in it. Kim ha Neul looks a bit old to be playing Kwon Sang Woo’s love interest. She is not the cutest, most glamorous Korean actress but she held her own and I like that fact that she is feisty and gutsy. There are some shots where Kim Ha Neul looks like Lee Eun Joo in the movie.
Kwon Sang Woo did a lot of fight scenes here. As always, his acting here was really good; I like his hairstyle here than in “Love So Divine” he looks better that way.
I had a few laughs in this movie; I fast-forwarded all the scenes in school cause it’s dragging already. Okay the prob with this movie is there was no chemistry between the two leads, the next thing I knew Ji-Hun already likes Su-Wan and that’s it, I swear I did not see that coming!
Question here, guys, anyone know what’s the real name of Sae Hun? The younger brother of Kwon Sang Woo in the movie? Are you kidding me! He looks so cute! I like rewinding that little cute cameo!
* edited entry: After watching Kim Ha Neul in “Stained Glass” I think I already am beginning to like her. She can look pretty too. J Yeah like really really like her!
