Excuse me, where is the school office?

You, hi...

Excuse me, I'm a substitute teacher.

Could you tell me where the school office is?.

It's lunch time now,

I'll take you to the school office.

I'm the new substitute teacher, Miss Yip.

My name is Don Don.

Don Don

Aren't you going out for lunch?.

I'm dieting.

You're not fat at all.

This is the school office.

Great, thank you.

Bye-bye. Bye.

Excuse me, I'm looking for Miss Kong.

There are two answers for this question.

A, she's not here.

B, I am Miss Kong. Pick one.

Miss Kong, you have a great sense of humor.

Not really...

nothing much happens around here

and it'd be tough to get

by without a sense of humor.

You've been here long?.

A few decades already

and I'll need to stay for a few

more decades or so before retiring.

You're late.

I'm sorry. But heavy rains and a traffic jam.

Is this Jennifer Yip?.

Principal Ko?.

Is 'Principal' engraved on her forehead?.

I read your resume.

You haven't taught for over three years.

It doesn't matter.

I've read up on the changes in the syllabus.

I'll be able to catch up and follow along.

That's great,

we have a teacher on maternity leave.

That's why I would like you

to take over her history class.

Sure, I can do that.

Then, please start tomorrow.

You will teach the afternoon class.

Miss Kong will give you your schedule.



Chung, you scared me...

what are you doing here?.

Why did you change your phone number?.

I've been waiting here for you all day.

Please let me go.


Why won't you give me a chance?.

A chance?.

I've given you over ten chances

in the past three years.

I was admitted into the hospital, four times.

Four times, you don't remember?.

I do remember.

Just give me one more chance,

I don't want to be like this.

No... don't be that way... Let me go!.

I won't be that way again.

Get up, there are people...

What are you looking at?.

Let's go!.

It hurts...

Let's go!.

Don't... Please don't be that way,

just give me one more chance.

Let go of me!.

What's happening?.

Uncle, I'm just asking her to go with me.

Jennifer, go home first.



Go, or I will call the police and tell them

you had assaulted and caused bodily harm.


Go!. Still not gone?.


You haven't worked for 3 years, because of him.

Being a bum is no big deal

until he gets drunk and starts to beat you.

Mom couldn't bear it.

At first, I thought

it was his job that made him sad

along with the stress and pressures,

that's why he started drinking.

I really didn't think he would beat me.

Man abusing woman, it could become a habit.

If it can happen once,

there will be a second and a third time.

He will beat you all day, don't you know?.

Don't worry about it, and make a new start.

Focus on your teaching now,

then look for a good man.

Mom, I don't want to think about

that now... okay?.

Well, it's your decision.

Your Highness,

if you want me to sleep in the living room

at least give me a blanket.

No problem, Mr. Yip.

You'll get it when you go to sleep.


if you run into that bastard again,

don't be soft-hearted.

Okay, okay.

Miss Yip, this is Miss Kong.

Being this is your first day, I didn't schedule

too many classes for you

to help you adapt.

The two lessons in the afternoon are with F.4E.

and I've outlined the course for you.

The kids in that class are a bit naughty,

so be careful.

You can find me at the school office,

if needed.


Don Don?.

I can't find the F.4E classroom.

Do you know where it is?.

I am in F. 4E, I'll take you there.

Good, thank you.

It's up ahead and around the corner.

Are you ok?.

He's just teasing me.

You got the time to threaten me,

why don't you worry about him first.

What are you talking about?.

If you provoke him again,

I will take care of you.

Beat me if you dare.

Go back to your seats!.

I am the new History teacher. My name is Yip.

You may call me Miss Yip.

I know that History can be a bit boring, but...

if you learn more about history,

then we can realize

more about our current society, right?.

Miss, just read from your teaching manual...

for those who'd like to listen;

and for those who don't...

they will do their own thing.

You don't think all of us

are trying for an A, do you?.

How about this. We won't teach today.

How about, if we...

get to know each other better?.

Miss, are you bored?.

You're so pretty,

a lot of boys won't mind chatting with you.

Yes, I'm just here to teach,

and it is only a job.

I can just teach on my own,

and you guys can keep fooling around.

Isn't there any other option?.

What do you mean?.

You want to fool around with us?.

We may not accept it.

You granted favors to whoever asks for it.

Go to hell!.

Examinations must be taken.

Being a teacher, I can't bare to see you fail.

I can help you.

I know!.

We'll ante up enough money,

then you can give pass to all of us.


Be quiet. Be quiet.

I don't want any money,

why don't I bring in some...

movies; some period pieces,

so we can watch and learn at the same time.

That way, everyone can learn something.

We only want blue-ray discs.

Miss Yip, lesson over yet?.


I didn't think you were that powerful.

There was a female teacher,

who after teaching this naughty class...

was in tears and said she wanted to leave.

Maybe... I am not that much older than them
