In the center of the drama series stands ‘Mah Yeo-jin’, a elementary teacher of the 6th grade and her students Shim Hana , Oh Dong-gu and Kim Seo-hyun who are reveling against her.
Teacher Mah is very realistic and to her elementary students, she shows how tough it is to live the world. Instead of being a shield for her students, she herself becomes the authority. She often pushes her students to the edge by blackmailing and mischief-making.
Whole class of 6-3(class 3 of the sixth grade) is rebelling against teacher Mah’s educational attitude which is incomprehensible. Sometimes they would betray each other, sometimes they help each other and gradually they realize secret of the reality and make on their own views of the world.
In each episode, teacher Mah is trying to be the high wall for the students and her students are trying not to be defeated and overcome the highness of the wall. And such strong plot will touch the hearts of the viewers with massive emotions. (MBC Global Media)
With the belief that the routine ceremony is useless, she usually does not appear at official school ceremony program. With the saying ‘It is very natural that superior person receives privilege while inferior person deserves to get discrimination’, she charges all miscellaneous- duties-in-class to low-grade-student. Instead of common comments for hope, she shows cruel reality of real-life for her students.
Is she real witch?
