unqualified teacher changes the hearts of a troubled class
Posted 9/6/08
Sound familiar.. well to me it does.
I'm pretty new to the drama world but I couldnt help but notice the same plot being played over and over and over again.

not just an ordinary person but one w/ a shady background is mistakenly/coincidently hired to take on a troubled class whom due to some past incident that doesn't neccessarily involve every student, no longer trusts teachers or for that matter adults in general. The sensei then proceeds to help one child at a time by kicking someone's ass thoroughly.
eventually enough ass kicking is done and the class finally trusts their sensei, and all is forgiven
But wait, now the teachers past, qualifications and/or teaching methods come forth and the teacher is forced to quit.. so now what,
so more damn straight ass whoopin dats what

How many can you name?

Personally I enjoyed the first couple dramas or so that had a similar plot but eventually the same jokes, and individual stories started playin out and i became uninterested, but it is fun though to see some actors/actresses different redition of certain played out characters for this story type.

If you look hard enough everything is just a repeat on something that came before it. Just played out a lil differently

It's called the Asian method of discipline, and art imitates life :P

At the moment I can only name the Gokusen series and GTO, because the dramas I've watched so far vary quite a bit (even though most of them revolve around school because of the target audience).

It's not just Asian dramas, though - this plot is also common in Western films and shows (To Sir with Love, Dangerous Minds, Boston Public, Coach Carter, etc.) except with less ass-whooping because corporal punishment isn't considered a "modern," Western value. XD
