Plot & Details

A handsome young freeloader and a miserly young woman team up to make some quick cash in this lively comedy from South Korea. Charming Ji-woong (Song Joong-ki) was coasting through life on the family coffers when his wealthy mother abruptly cut him off. Suddenly homeless after being evicted by his landlord, Ji-woong is pondering his next move when he crosses paths with stingy Hong-sil (Han Ye-seul). Hong-sil's life goal is to acquire $20 million, but she needs another bank account registered in another name if she ever hopes to make it happen. When Hong-sil meets Ji-woong, it seems like a match made in heaven. Who knew the race to get rich could be this much fun?
