My Korean Teacher (いきなり先生になったボクが彼女に恋をした)

(98mins, 2016)


After losing both job and girlfriend, things aren’t looking too great for Yong Woon (Yesung), a Korean expat in Japan.

There he meets Sakura (Nozomi Sasaki), a single mother who is desperate to improve her language skills in order to keep her job at a travel agency. Sympathizing with her struggles, Yong Woon helps her and falls in love with her in the process.
