Penny Pinchers


This Korean movie was a fun comedy about two people at the bottom of the bottom. It could maybe considered a romcom, but it was really more comedy and reality than anything else. The tone of the movie was just so fun and it kept my interest from the beginning to the end. It had such a light plot line that was so unique that I couldn’t help but love it. It also had Song Joong Ki as the male lead who was also leading man in Descendants of the Sun; but I guess it shows how diverse his acting skills are because I also almost didn’t realize that it was him.
The plot is fairly simple. Two young people are virtually penniless and through a series of events end up working together to survive. The strong, resilient Hong Sil has always had to live as a penny pincher, but her creative methods to live and survive have made her an unsung champion of the poor. Ji Woong is a carefree young man trying to live in the big city, but failing miserably. Together they form an unstoppable duo.
