CHUN Sung-geun, who is called E.T. among his students, is the gym teacher of a private high school at an upscale district where competition is heated among students to enter top colleges. One day he’s struck with a crisis. At the school’s board meeting, a parent requests that the school get rid of the useless gym class and expand the hours for English classes. Faced with having to quit the school, he remembers by chance that he obtained a license to teach English ten years ago. The president of the school tells him to pass a test in order for her to  be able to acknowledge the license. Sung-geun, who had nothing to do with English for ten years, faces the impossible task to become an English teacher within the next two weeks. His only weapon is his amazingly incomparable physical strength and with the help of a few students who understand his warm heart, he starts a perilous and knee-slapping journey to become the school’s E.T.

This film is presented in Korean with English subtitles.
