Do teachers always know best? Ma Yeo Jin (Ko Hyun Jung) is an overly pragmatic elementary school teacher who doesn’t believe in protecting her students from the harsh realities of the real world. She teaches her students – sixth-graders in Class 3 who include Shim Ha Na (Kim Hyang Gi), Oh Dong Goo (Chun Bo Geun), Kim Seo Hyun (Kim Sae Ron), Eun Bo Mi (Seo Shin Ae), and Go Na Ri (Lee Young Yoo) – cutthroat, take-no-prisoners survival skills that will help them to get what they want out of life. Will the students in Ms. Ma’s class become the cynical, heartless go-getters that she hopes or will they rebel against her teachings?
