The Daechi-dong neighborhood in the affluent Gangnam district south of the Han River is a village where a bizarre ecosystem has formed around the high-octane crammers that fill the area.

Mothers know exactly which child is at the top of his or her class and where they go to cram, and a hacking order has developed among parents according to the supposed academic excellence of their children. Parents whose kids are at the top of their class are treated like royalty.

Since public schools are no longer expected to deliver the goods and rankings are determined by endless standardized tests that can be beaten, private crammers determine which student excels at school.
