K – Drama Review: Cheer Up! Episode 6

Hello my fellow Dramatics! I’m back again with Episode 6 of Cheer Up! Lets not waste any time and get right into this exciting episode!

In the last episode Yeon Doo told the reporters that she agreed to a interview.  Yeon Doo asks the interviewer will this help her teacher and he says yes. He asks her about the fact that the students were being used to help build other specs. She says this was true at first but now everyone’s working together as a team. I have a feeling he is going to take her words and twist them around by the time this interview comes out.

Then Kim Yeol and Ha Joon approach the reporter together. Kim  Yeol asks the reporter if he had a good interview with Yeon Doo to which the reporter says yes. Ha Joon then kicks the reporter. Kim Yeol explains to the him that he broke the Interrogative Security Law that is supposed to protect the interviewee’s identity. Kim Yeol threatens to sue him if he doesn’t properly protect Yeon Doo.

Later Ha Joon walks by Yeon Doo and she stops him and has him sit down to eat a snack with her. She tells him that she gave the interview. Ha Joon tells her that he already knew that and that he saws her talking to the reporter. She asks if he wanted to give the interview as well. He does not admit to this, but says he hopes Teacher Yang will be alright.

We find out that the  60 minutes special on Sevit High will not be aired.  Teacher Yang calls the reporter to find out what happened. He discovers that the reporters bosses at the station told him to trash the story. Then the reporter warns Teacher Yang to be careful as well. We discover that the Assistant Principal realized that Teacher Yang was planning to do the interview with 60 minutes and reported it to the Principal. Now at this point, they know they need to get rid of Teacher Yang. But they can’t fire him either. They begin to look for anything in order to get him fired.

Yeon Doo feels a little down that the interview will not be aired. Kim Yeol tells her that it’s for the best, that it helps to keep her safe. Kim Yeol tells her to concentrate on the cheerleading competition. It’s time to show Coach Nam their cheerleading routines.  Soo A and the Real King members perform their routine complete with stunts and performance dancing. Only Dong Jae is the only member who does not perform because he has not yet gotten over his phobia. Yeon Doo and the members of Baek Ho perform a dance performance highlighting each members talents.

It’s time to decide who the winner is and Coach Nam says that both teams did very good on their performances. But Coach Nam points out that because Soo A did not include Dong Jae in her perfomance. So that makes Yeon Doo the winner and Captain of the cheerleading team. Both routines were so good, Coach Nam decided to combine both styles together for the competition. Soo A is very upset that she lost the opportunity to be Captain. She finds out that Teacher Yang is the one who is ratting them out. Soo A’s mom tells her that the adults will take care of that issue. But Soo A does not trust her mother at all. At practice, the team is  trying to prepare for the competition and Coach Nam asks Teacher Yang to be the spotter for Jae Young, of the girls from the Baek Ho team. Her partner stumbles and Jae Young falls backward. Teacher Yang is there to catch her and protect her from getting hurt, but she yells at him as he touches her chest while doing so.  Everyone else realizes that this was necessary in order to keep her from getting hurt, but she’s upset and runs out of the room.

Jae Young realizes that Teacher Yang did not purposely touch her. Soo A approaches and tells the Baek Ho girls that they need to get back at Teacher Yang for ratting them out. So they go to the Principal and tell her that Teacher Yang touched Jae Young inappropriately. The moms of all the Baek Ho students find out and come to the school demand that he be fired. Coach Nam goes to the Principal and explains to her that explain that the touch was necessary in order to prevent Jae Young from getting hurt. The Principal tells him that she will let the Board Of Education know about this matter and see what they have to say.

Rumors start to fly around school about Teacher Yang. Embarrassed, he still continues to teach. Yeon Doo is furious as she knows these rumors are not true. As the whispers get louder  in Teacher Yang’s class while he’s teaching, Yeon Doo gets up out of her seat to tell the other students off. Kim Yeol stands up and tells Yeon Doo sit down. He says that the girls of Baek Ho were the main targets that started this whole mess about Teacher Yang. Kim Yeol goes on to point out that the girls are trying to get Teacher Yang kicked out of school. Yeon Doo is proud of Kim Yeol but asks him why he did it. He tells he did it because if he didn’t, she would without worrying about the consequences or pain it caused her. Yeon Doo questions what the means and he tells to think hard about it.

Yeon Doo goes to Teacher Yang and tells him that there are those who know he is a good teacher and believe he did not do anything wrong. After trying to cheer up Teacher Yang, Yeon Doo comes across a notice that Teacher Yang is to be fired. Ha Joon and Kim Yeol come upon her and try to tell her that there was nothing she could have done, but she tells them that it’s not over yet.

When Teacher Yang enters the lunchroom, everyone stars and whispers about him but he tries to remain positive. When he sits down at a table, all the students sitting nearby get up and walk away.  So Teacher Yang begins to eat his lunch alone. Just then, Yeon Doo and Dong Jae sit down at the table with big smiles and being to joke with the teacher. A few moments later Kim Yeol and Ha Joon have joined as well with smiles on their faces.

Kim Yeol and Ha Joon start a petition to allow Teacher Yang to keep his job and submit it to the Board Of Education. The Principal finds out about this. Yeon Doo calls a few days later to check on the status but not petition has been filed there. Teacher Yang is then in a meeting with the Board Of Education about the charges of inappropriately touching Jae Young. They bring her in the meeting as well and she seems very upset as she knows her lie went way too far. Teacher Yang tells the board that it’s his fault and he’ll take responsibility and resign immediately.

Jae Young confesses to her mom that Teacher Yang never touched her and her mom tells her to keep quiet, that if she confesses not only will she be known for lying, but also the details on the spec-stacking will become known. Because Jae Young’s uncle is a congressman, it will mean a big deal to her family. Jae Young is still very much upset and goes to Soo A. Soo A said that he would only get a reduction in his pay. Soo A tells her it was her own fault for being too stupid not to realize that he would be fired.

Kim Yeol and Ha Joon are feeling sad after Teacher Yang was fired. While Kim Yeol seems frustrated at how stubborn Yeon Doo was on the matter at first Ha Joon tells him that despite what Kim Yeol says, he’s acting like he did care about Teacher Yang.  Ha Joon states  that he’s glad he helped Yeon Doo try to save Teacher Yang.

Ha Joon goes to visit his father at work and begs him to get Teacher Yang’s job back because he is on the Board Of Educaiton. His father just brushes him off and tells Ha Joon that the was the one who got rid of the petition and he wants Teacher Yang fired.

Yeon Doo’s mom comes to Sevit High to comfort Yeon Doo. Yeon Doo admits to her mom that she did give the interview after all and they talk about how similar they are.  Yeon Doo’s mom tells her that she really only told her not to do it because it was the mom thing to do, but really what she wanted for Yeon Doo was for her to follow her heart no matter what it told her to do. Yeon Doo walks her mom out and they see Kim Yeol who greets them. Yeon Doo informs him that it’s her mom. She tells Yeon Doo that he’s handsome and that she should go out with someone like him.

The next day at cheerleading practice, Yeon Doo is distraught by the whole Teacher Yang situation and Coach Nam tells her it’s a cheerleader’s responsibility not to cheer just for fun, but to cheer others on and to cheer others up. Yeon Doo gets an idea and approaches Jae Young and the other girl from Baek Ho and tells them she needs their help and reminds them about Teacher Yang, knowing that they don’t feel good about the way things turned out. She finds Teacher Yang and makes him promise to show up at the athletic competition and he says he will.

On competition day Kim Yeol sees Yeon Doo pacing alone in the hall. He gives her Vanilla Milk, telling her he wants to be different from from Dong Jae. He then tells Yeon Doo that at first, he found her funny and fun but lately he’s been making her feel all sorts of different emotions. Yeon Doo apologizes and starts to walk away. But then Kim Yeol grabs her into a tight hug and tells her to cheer up. Yeon Doo is shocked by his actions. A member of Real King comes running up to tell them that Teacher Yang is there and they break apart. Kim Yeol seeming quite happy and Yeon Doo quite surprised.They look out in the audience, to see Teacher Yang trying to be unnoticed. The entire team is excited that he’s there. Coach Nam sees him as well and motion him to sit next to her in the front, telling him that’s where he belongs, saying that he’ll be their teacher forever.

The cheer teams gets on stage and performs their cheer routine.  Then when they finish, they pick up signs that they incorporated into their routine. As they flip them over they reveal the messages which read: “Teacher Yang didn’t touch me”, “Please have him come back, he was wrongly accused”, and “Cheer Up! You Have Us!” Teacher Yang sees this and tears well up in his eyes as the students begin to chant his name. Coach Nam is very proud of the team. The cheer team smiles at him and cheers him on except for Soo A who didn’t know it was coming and is furious. She’s not alone as the Principal, Assistant Principal and Soo A’s mother all watch from the audience just as furious. And that’s how this episode ends!

I can’t wait to see what happens in the next episode! I really hope Teacher Yang returns because he is a very good teacher and he is the only adult that is trustworthy at the school.
