Ji-woong (SONG Joong-ki, a Werewolf Boy) can't get a job, survives on an allowance from his mom and is content to cruise through life on his looks and ability to talk a good game. But his freewheeling ways screech to a halt when his family cuts him off and his landlord finally evicts him. That same day, salvation arrives in the form of Hong-sil, a mysterious girl with an unusual proposal: Want to make some money? Then do everything I say. Hong-sil (HAN Ye-seul, Spy Myung-wol TV) is a modern-day Scrooge who's dedicated her life to the accumulation of cash, whether that means selling empty glass bottles for profit or steering clear of anything that costs money from boyfriends to getting sick! Hong-sil's extreme savings plan is progressing at full speed, until she discovers one of her schemes will require a bank account that is under someone else's name. So, in exchange for Ji-woong's assistance, she takes him on as her roommate and apprentice, and an unusual penny-pinching partnership is forged.
