After 60 years of living in a poor neighborhood, a woman is finally able to move up in the world.
Hye Ja (Kim Hye Ja) decides to move to the upscale Cheongdam-dong area of Gangnam, Seoul, and her daughter, Ji Eun (Oh Ji Eun), dreams of living in the midst of luxurious shopping, restaurants and residences for the first time in her life. But what she finds when she actually gets to her mother’s new home is quite the opposite.
Sandwiched in between all the luxury buildings in Cheongdam-dong is her mother’s new home, a dilapidated building that looks like it might blow over. On the first floor of their new home is a comic book store that Hye Ja will run, and on the second floor is a lodging house that they will live in.
Can Hye Ja and Ji Eun find the lifestyle they seek when their home sticks out like a sore thumb in such a nice neighborhood?
“I Live in Cheongdam-dong” is a 2011 South Korean drama series directed by Kim Suk Yoon.
