My Boss, My Teacher (Hangul투사부일체; RRTusabu-ilche) is a 2006 South Korean film and sequel to the 2001 film My Boss, My Hero. It was followed by The Mafia, The Salesman in 2007.


Gangster Doo-shik has graduated school and is now attending college, though he is allowing his underling Sang-du to take classes on his behalf. For the final semester, all education majors are sent out to work in schools for teacher training. This is one job that Doo-shik must complete himself, and he is sent out to teach in the trouble-laden high school himself.



My Boss, My Teacher was released in South Korea on 19 January 2006,[1] and topped the box office on its opening weekend with 1,106,825 admissions.[2] It held the number-one spot for a second consecutive week,[3] and went on to receive a total of 6,105,431 admissions nationwide,[1] making it the fourth best selling film of 2006,[1] and—until surpassed by 200 Pounds Beauty in early 2007—the most successful Korean comedy film of all time.[4] As of 5 February 2006, the film had grossed a total of $30,585,589.[5]
