Penny-Pinching Romance releases posters

Here’s a look at some colorful cheeky posters and another trailer for Penny-Pinching Romance, the new romantic comedy film featuring a quirky pairing between a tightwad heroine (Han Ye-seul) and a loser hero (Song Joong-ki) — he can’t afford to date, and she doesn’t think dating’s worth the cost. And me, I’m just happy that one of them isn’t a chaebolprincediplomat. Unless he’s undercover. Don’t be undercover!

The posters feature the pair in full money-scheme mode, except… who wears designer clothes while collecting recyclables? But hey, I guess a girl’s entitled to spend her hard-pinched pennies on whatever she damn well pleases. If I had the patience to turn bottles into shoes, I’d do it. How many bottles of soju do you suppose I’d have to drink to turn ’em into a pair of Jimmy Choos? Huh? Whadduya mean that’s not how it works?

She teaches him in the ways of making cash, and he teaches her in the ways of the heart. When he asks, “How can a person live without dating?” she retorts drily, “What’s that? Is it something to eat?” But over the course of their low-rent money-making hijinks, they bond and she starts to warm to him. At the end of the trailer they have this drunken exchange:

For 2000 won I’ll kiss you!
For 3000 won I’ll hug you!
For 6000 won I’ll hug you…
I just said that one!
…lying down.
*BUH*

Haha. Now THAT’s a better thing to spend your pennies on! I have a feeling that Lusty Song Joong-ki is gonna be even better than Puppy Song Joong-ki. The premiere has been pushed back a few weeks; Penny-Pinching Romance hits theaters November 10.

Plus, I have faith in SJK and HYS that they can pull the fun quirky comedy off!

Joongki-yaaah... I see this character resembles him the most, the flirty and over-ambitious kind in Running Man

aaaaaah... how I miss him in RM!! I miss the Brain, his sad attempt at drawing, and his platonic noona-dongsaeng relationship with Ji-Hyo...

I WISH he'll appear again in RM, maybe as a guest... *run to Isubs to watch old SJK episodes*

"who wears designer clothes while collecting recyclables?"
So true, that always happens in k-drama/movieland.
For instance: Geum Jan Di in BOF. Gil Ra Im in SG even before the shopping spree. They all like "I'm so poor but I'm wearing all this designer stuffs, just pretend they're cheap"

Actually what gets me in many k-dramas is characters have been beaten up but look like there is barely a scratch on them (especially given the intensity of some fights), have been drenched by rain but are magically dry within minutes, or wake up in the morning with full make-up on and no bed hair!

maybe they're really really good knock-offs?

But I remember how they made such a big deal abt Ra-Im barely even having a serviceable bag and then suddenly, she has like several designer ones!

I noticed that too! That drawn back upper lip seems to be a signature of Yoon Sang-Hyun.

You're right!
Now I don't know whether I'm going to watch it because of the story, or because he looks like Yoon Sang-hyun XD

I agree! Maybe when he's older he'll look so much more like him. I'm ambivalent!

Actually he looks like Gong Yoo in the 7 Eleven scene when he's trying to distract the cashier and steal condoms (heh). 0:22 - 0:23

But this looks really cute, and since it's a movie, it'll be super cuteness packed into a couple of hours. Overload!

I really really hope, for Song Joong Ki, that HYS's previous big scandal won't affect ticket sales. :(

Do you think that it will? I think that people will see the trailer, think that it's cute and will want to see the movie. They won't punish themselves by boycotting the actress.

The above dialogue strongly reminded me of The Woman Who Want to Marry mixed with Myung Wol the Spy:( (I enjoyed TWWWTM but stopped watching MWTS halfway through.)

Glad the trailer gave a different feel:)

Thanks GF.

"she doesn’t think dating’s worth the cost"-- sadly, I think this too oftentimes. Maybe I need to meet Song Joong-ki for reals so that he can show me the ways of the heart =P

The movie looks cute and having SJK star in it is an automatic win for me. I wish I were in Korea so I could watch it on the big screen.
