Penny-Pinching Romance sets premiere, releases teaser

The romantic comedy film Penny-Pinching Romance about two cheapskates who scheme to get rich and fall in love instead, has finally settled on an October premiere and released a teaser, which looks adorable. The movie stars Song Joong-ki (Sungkyunkwan Scandal) and Han Ye-seul (Myung-wol the Spy) as a bickering noona-dongseng pair who loves money more than each other.

What with Han’s recent on-set drama, it seemed possible that the film would be delayed indefinitely if producers felt that her image made it hard to publicize the film, but the premiere is going ahead for the fall as scheduled, and both stars are set to do the press junkets to promote the film in the coming weeks. It’s good news for both Han Ye-seul and Penny-Pinching Romance, to rebound quickly and move forward.

I’m excited to see these two quirky characters in what looks like a different kind of noona-dongseng relationship. But most of all, I’m looking forward to seeing Song Joong-ki take on an adult role. Okay, he’s still playing a manchild, but there seems to be a little more man, a little less child in that equation now.

Han Ye-seul plays Hong-shin, the tightwad heroine with a sharp tongue, who gets the bright idea for a crazy scheme to make a quick 200 million won. She meets Song Joong-ki’s character Ji-woong, an unemployed master bullshitter who can’t hold onto a girl because he’s constantly broke. (The trailer shows him trying to make a deal with a convenience store clerk to just buy two condoms out of a multi-pack, because he can’t afford them all. HA.)

Hong-shin asks in the trailer: “Do you like a woman with a lot of money, or a woman with no money?” Ji-woong: “No matter what, the pretty one.” After swearing, she follows it up with some friendly advice that this is the reason why he doesn’t have a penny to his name. She hooks him in her scheme, and then… hilarity? And romance? I’m in.

Penny-Pinching Romance premieres in theaters in October.

No - that's why we go to Korea to find the apparently endless amount of chaebols. Just make sure you appear to be a Candy-type girl ;)

This movie looks fun! :) Han Ye Seul's perfect for the role so I hope they won't switch with another actress.

Still, I hope this'll be fun to watch. I liked HYS since Fantasy Couple.

I am so happy that the movie is going to premiere. I was so worried for Joong ki that the show is going to be canned.

But I guess, they must as well capitalise on HYS "fame" now and put it up. Maybe the movie will do really well. who knows?

Will definetly like to watch it!

Although I've seen dozens of dramas, I've never watched a Korean film. I want to, but they're so hard to find!! This one, Sunny, and The Crucible are at the top of my list.

Frankly, I'm kind of tired of the noona/dongsaeng dynamics.

Maybe because some of the male actors look like they just graduated from high school and my nephew is close to that age.

LOL I don't think I've come across a proper noona/dongsaeng story.

Wait, now that I think about it, there was the Woman Who Still Wants to Marry. But besides that, I haven't seen any others. I sort of like this dynamic!

what i learned from the dramas is that no matter how poor you are in korea, there's two things you can't go without. a good hair color and high tech cellphone.

Looks funny/cute. I'd like to watch it.
Talking about poor/broke guy. I married one cuz I was poor myself. We worked hard and after a year, we were able to buy our own house and 30 years later, we are doing well. Money isn't that powerful when it comes to love.

I thought it was downhill for HYS for awhile. She was not at her best in Spy but I saw her in Fantasy Couple before that and she was pretty good in that.

Hope it goes well for the movie...
