Any recommended shows, movies, documentaries, etc. that show the life of students in Asia?

TL;DR at the bottom.

I'm an ignorant American fascinated by the culture and lifestyles of Asia. Not Japan or China or Korea specifically, but all of Asia in general.

Now, I know absolutely nothing about the school systems, or just a day-to-day life in Asia. I'm not sure if it varies by country or if it's all sort of the same, but I would like to learn.

Most Asian people are stereotypically (and, well, realistically) smarter than, say, the US, and I know it's probably because of their tougher school regimes. I'd like to see what it's really like.

Plus, I just love learning about Asian culture in general. It's always intrigued me.

TL;DR What are some real-life, slice-of-life movies, shows, documentaries, etc. that showcase the lives of students in Asia?
