Penny Pinchers (2011)

Do you know the biggest mistake people make when they buy things? They can’t distinguish between what they need and what they want. And most of the things they want are things they don’t need. – Gu Hong Sil

Penny Pinchers Synopsis : Despite being a college graduate, Ji-Woong (Song Joong Ki) is so irresponsible with his money that he is continually calling his mother for loans. However, when he is evicted from his apartment he’s taken in by the woman across the hall, Hong-Shil (Han Ye Seul). Hong-Shil is a complete miser with her money, doing anything to save an extra penny and to gain an extra dime. This romantic movie proves love is more important than money. (Source : Soompi)
