YesAsia Editorial Description

It's a battle for love between bitter rivals: a primary school teacher...and her twelve year-old student? From Jang Gyu Seong, 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 Daejong Film Awards) is Yeo 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 Ji 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!

A pleasant surprise! Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
In "Lovely Rivals", Yeom Jung Ah plays Yoe Mi-Ok, the most obnoxiously self-involved teacher ever seen on the silver screen. She doesn't care much for her job or her students and is eager to move on to bigger and better things ... until a handsome new teacher (Lee Jee Hoon) arrives. Ko Mi-Nam (Lee Se Young) is a cute, but friendless, 12 year old in Miss Yoe's class. She leads an arid, unhappy existence ... until that handsome new teacher begins to fill her fantasies.

Watching the forever frazzled Miss Yoe fall all over herself in pursuit of the new teacher provides many unforgettable comic highlights. Equally charming is little Mi-Nam's precocious efforts at wooing Mr. Handsome, efforts that succeed mainly in making the new teacher feel uncomfortable.

Just when Miss Yoe's thoughtless theatrics start to wear a bit thin, "Lovely Rivals" shifts gears and begins to show both teacher and student beginning to grow and change. This leads the film to a heartwarming, funny, and thoroughly satisfying conclusion.

Both Yeon Jung Ah and Lee Se Young give remarkable performances, as do the child actresses who play the little girls who first torment then idolize Mi-Nam and the veteran actress who plays Miss Yoe's mother. I wholeheartedly recommend this skillfully plotted and delightful film.

Well... Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
The story is not likel to happen. Of course, it can be true that student can have crushes especially if we are talking of a teacher as handsome as Lee Jae Hoon. But student and teacher competing, forget it. Anyway, still entertaining...but suggest to just borrow a copy.

Awsome Movie!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I usually don't say this but this is an awsome movie! I love watching this movie. It was super entertaining and I love watching it through that I was sad that it was comming to an end. I wouldn't mind watching a sequal if they made one. :)

I think the guy pretty good looking but I think the female teacher is really hot. At time she looks scary but she hot. I think the female student is a cute little girl and I thought she was cute too when she was in "when I turned nine."

I recomend this movie and not just a rental but it's a good buy too. I have seen this movie 2 times so far but I am sure to watch it again pretty soon. Watch it now; you won't be disappointed! :)

Yeom Jung Ah is impressive.... Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
I finally got around watching this movie (boy I wished the L.E. had came out at that time, I would've loved to watched the deleted scenes). I was suprised...I think the trailer is a bit misleading, but I guess that's why the film was great. If you like My Teacher Mr. Kim (by the same director), you will love this film more. Yeom Jung Ah does a completely different role from most of her previous films (big swindle, tell me something, tale of two sisters) which is very impressive. It really shows that she is truely a great actress. This role would have been perfect for Jang Na Ra, but Jung Ah proves that she is so versatile, and knocks this one out with her animated acting...The story itself is a light comedy about a teacher and student who falls in love with the same guy...find out the rest when you pick up. Or buy mine, so that I can pickup this L.E. version. :)
