About PENNY PINCHERSPress Release (pdf)
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.
Includes the feature film plus more than 30 minutes of video extras, all with on/off English subtitles!
