그가 다시 돌아왔다!! 바로 5년 전, 조폭의 신분으로 고등학교에 입학. 학교를 발칵 뒤집어 놓은 계두식이, 이번에는 사범 대학교 윤리 교생으로 돌아온다. 다름이 아니라, 그는 졸업생들을 위한 현장실습을 "장기수들이 출소하기 전에 쌓는 사회경험"으로 가볍게 판단, 교생 실습을 위해 학교로 나서게 된 것이다. 하지만 교생으로서 갖추어야 할 덕목과는 거리가 멀기만 한 그에게 평탄한 학교 생활이란 기대하기 어려운 일.

결국 학교 생활의 시작인 실습 첫날부터 개구멍으로 출근하는 실수를 저지른다. 하지만 누가 그랬던가. 목소리 큰 자가 용감하다고... 무식과 용감무쌍함으로 똘똘 뭉친 두식은, "교생도 선생은 선생!!" 이라고 목에 강하게 힘을 주며, "윤리와 사상은 나만의 윤리관으로 가르치겠다!!"라는 포부를 밝힌다. 그리고 당당하게 교생 실습 생활을 시작한다.

그러나 정말 두식을 난처하게 만드는 복병은 따로 있었으니, 바로 그의 보스!! 두식의 학교 생활을 막는 장애물은 비단, 영어 선생이나 철모르고 대드는 학생들만이 아니었던 것이다. 자신의 최고 보스도 학교에서만큼은 장애물이 되고 만다. 상두에게 여자 보기를 돌같이 여기라고 말하는 것 보다, 대가리에게 상대방을 대화로 설득시키도록 지시하는 것 보다, 더 어려운 것은 바로, 제자가 된 두목(상중)을 공정한 마음으로 다스려야 한다는 것!! "아직도!! 두목과 스승과 아버지는 하나다" 라며 자신 있게 외쳐대는 두식은 설상가상으로 자신의 제자로 보스를 만나게 된다. 두식은 과연 이런 난관 중에 난관을 어떻게 헤쳐 나가며, 안전하게 학교 생활을 마무리 지을 것인가.

Professional Review of "My Boss, My Teacher"

July 8, 2006

This professional review refers to My Boss, My Student Limited Edition
When we last saw Gye Doo-Shik in the hit Korean gangster comedy My Boss My Hero (2001), he was a second-in-command gangster who was forced by his boss to get a high school diploma in order to move up in the mob ladder. There, he was subjected to bullies, rival gangs, and various forms of corporal punishment. The film became a mega-hit and was etched forever into Korean pop culture history as one of the films that led the popular gangster comedy genre in South Korea. Five years later, Doo-Shik and company return for more of the same in the sequel My Boss My Student. This time, everything is bigger - larger cast, more subplots, more violence, more gangsters, even the screen is wider. The result is a true blockbuster that brought twice the box office gross of its predecessor (as of now, it is the second highest-grossing Korean film of 2006), but is the rise in box office gross reflected in quality as well?

For newcomers who will find themselves lost in the first 10 minutes, you should know that Jeong Jun-ho is returning as Gye Doo-Shik, now a gangster with a high school degree. However, after being pressured to deliver a college degree by his boss, he sends his right hand man Sang-Do in instead, who plays Doo-Shik as a charming college student. Meanwhile, dumb-but-loyal lieutenant Dumb-Garl (this is only according to the subtitles, the character's actual name is Dae Ka-ri) is coming up with new ways to embarrass his boss while remaining loyal despite constant punishment from both Doo-Shik and his bossy wife for his stupidity. Perhaps inspired by the hit Japanese manga franchise Gokusen, Doo-Shik is discovered by his boss and is forced to finish the degree himself via a student teacher program at a local high school, teaching a class on none other than ethics.

On the first day of class, Doo-Shik realizes that his boss, looking to complete his own high school education, has unknowingly enrolled in the class as a student. Ordered to treat his boss the same as his fellow students, Doo-Shik now has to not only protect the boss from other bullies, but also dish out various forms of corporal punishments to his boss. As if teaching high school isn't enough, he has to worry about a deal with the Hong Kong triads being constantly disrupted by Sang-Do and Dumb-Garl due to their incompetence. To add even more to the mess, there's the tough female teacher smitten with Doo-Shik, a troubled female student that Doo-Shik befriends, and a staple in all gangster films - the rival gang. If you think reading that was exhausting, try writing about it.

My Boss My Student is essentially a 90-minute film trapped in a 120-minute one. Director Kim Dong-Won (taking over directorial and co-screenwriting duties from original director-writer Yun Je-Gyun) crams as much subplots into the film as possible. The result may be a slightly more enjoyable experience than the brutal original, but also a more unnecessarily convoluted one as well. My Boss My Student, in fact, becomes so stuffed that you may forget the existence of a plot halfway through. Fans of Jeong Jun-ho may be glad to see him dishing out the punishment this time rather than taking it, but that's what he spends the whole movie doing - being boss and teacher while punishing people left and right - rarely does the audience ever see him teach. Considering that Doo-Shik would rather get drunk with his ethics tutor than being taught by him, one might wonder why he isn't fired by the second act, let alone becoming a well-liked teacher.

Then again, forget logic and plot, My Boss My Student is out to make people laugh, and that it does every once in a while. If you are a fan of people getting punished in all kinds of humorous ways, then My Boss My Student is the ticket. It indulges in finding out new ways to beat someone up, and in true Korean comedy style - no one ever seems to need any medical attention after getting hit repeatedly. But that's ok, the film is filled with funny, if not somewhat redundant, gags. Rather than following a coherent plot, each scene simply becomes a new excuse for someone to get punished for something. While the idea that a student, an underling, and a child being the same thing (the franchise's slogan is that one must always respect his boss, father, and teacher) is an interesting concept, it's replaced by another slogan - being in Korean high schools and the mob can both suck equally.

Nevertheless, Kim and the cast do have impeccable comic timing, which must've been one of the deciding factors in its success. The Korean verbal humor may get lost in translation every once in a while' the physical humor, in most part, is the highlight of the film. Apart from a strange out-of-nowhere parody of The Classic in the beginning and a somewhat strained extended finale, Kim is not afraid to wait, pushing comedic tension far enough that each laugh comes at just the right moment. Kim may not have his pacing down right yet, as several unnecessary subplots brings the film to a halt (not to mention the two-hour mark), but he definitely has a future in comedy.

A film like My Boss My Student is essentially critic-proof - it's utterly absurd and overlong, the plot is more complicated that it needs to be, and the third act dramatic twist is as contrived as they come, but it features familiar characters in familiar situations, and it actually makes the audience laugh more often than most Korean comedies do these days. It may not become a classic like the first film, but as far as Korean comedies go, it's recommendable as a flawed, but enjoyable ride.
