It's a battle for love between bitter rivals: a primary school teacher...and her twelve year-old student? From Jang Kyu Sung, director of the hit comedy My Teacher, Mr. Kim, comes Lovely Rivals, a hilarious and bittersweet comedy about an unlikely love triangle. Yeom Jung Ah (co-star of A Tale of Two Sisters, and winner of the 2004 Best Supporting Actress Award at the Dae-Jong Film Festival) is Yoe Mi-Ok, a lazy elementary school teacher who longs for a bigger and better teaching job. Thanks to her fiery and sometimes mean personality, Mi-Ok is unpopular with everyone in school.

For herself, she couldn't care less -- that is, until she meets the handsome new teacher (Lee Jee Hoon) and instantly falls in love! Mi-Ok pretends to be kind and sweet to win his heart, but romantic competition arrives in a surprisingly pint-sized package: Ko Mi-Nam (Lee Se Young), one of Mi-Ok's students, and a romantic rival to be reckoned with! A recent transfer from another school, Mi-Nam is precocious both physically and mentally, and is determined to expose Mi-Ok's true personality for all to see!

The two "women" engage in an escalating war, but beneath their battles there are lessons to be learned. Can Mi-Ok rediscover what it truly means to be a teacher? With a top cast, winning characters, and heartfelt laughs, Lovely Rivals is a surprising and genuinely crowd-pleasing comedy that's sure to entertain!

GAH! I saw a sort of review for this movie like two years ago!! Ohh, it seems so funny! I wish I could see it! (With subtitles, of course. I only know, like, one word in Korean, and I hardly bet it matters that much in daily Korean conversation. (Sarang Hae? Do I even correctly remember it? XD)

I decided to watch this movie due to the "Most Romantic Movie" poll. I'm not sure I'd even consider this movie in the running. Not to say this movie is bad; it's actually pretty good. It's just more comedic than romantic and most importantly the movie is more about the relationship between the lead teacher and her student, not the new male teacher. The movie turned out to be more touching than I thought it would be.
