    • Synopsis
    • Because of his unique appearance and behavior, CHUN Sung-geun, who’s called E.T. among his students, is the gym teacher of a private high school, an upscale district where competition is heated among students to enter top colleges. He gratefully receives bribes from parents and publishers of student-aid books. When he discovers students fighting, he referees the match and even bets on them. He’s a truly wacky teacher who has lived his life that way for ten years without any worries. But one day he’s struck with a crisis. At the school’s board meeting, a parent requests that the school get rid of the useless phys ed class and expand the hours for English classes which is much more important to the students for their college prep exam. Faced with having to quit the school, he remembers by chance that he obtained a license to teach English ten years ago. The president of the school can’t trust Sung-geun when he brandishes his English teaching license so she tells him to pass a test in order for her to acknowledge it. But for Sung-geun, who had nothing to do with English for ten years, faces the impossible task to become an English teacher within two weeks. Although he doesn’t have the brains, his only weapon is his amazingly incomparable physical strength, like that of Samson, and with the help of a few students who understand his warm heart, he starts a perilous and knee-slapping journey to become the school’s E.T.
