Hanbyul believes and practices all kinds of superstitions to succeed on the CSAT. Actually, she is a big chicken who only eats plain rice for school meals. She is fueled by a rumor that a person who steals the workbook of a ghost hidden behind the school would excel in the test; Hanbyul decides to visit a ghost.
Seniors in high school encounter a warrior's time, pushed to the cliff to fight against Suneung (Korean CSAT) monster. Hanbyeol, a high school student, is determined to steal a ghost's test prep book to pursue a good score. In the film, superstitions like "If you eat bread, you get zero points on the test" (Zero and bread in Korean have the same pronunciation: ppang) add humor to various scenes and show the director's wit. The film stands out with its rhythmic editing and well-placed sound effects, creating a delightful experience for the viewers. [Kim Woojeong, Cinefemme]
