What can a house-poor man and a financially strapped woman do? Nam Sae Hee (Lee Min Ki) is a single man in his early 30s who has managed to buy his own home. But his mortgage takes all of his disposable income and he has little left to do much else. Yoon Ji Ho (Jung So Min) is a single woman in her early 30s who barely makes enough money to get by and has given up on dating because of her financial situation.
Through unexpected circumstances, Ji Ho becomes a renter in Sae Hee’s house, and they become housemates. Can they help each other grapple with their own individual financial issues?
