Apart from being a romantic comedy, it also offers plenty of insight into the property market. As lead actor Kim Ji-seok puts, “The real estate market depicted in Monthly Magazine Home is very realistic. For those of you who don’t know much about real estate, you will get to gather useful and accurate information in a fun and exciting way.”
It shines the spotlight on real estate disputes, and stars Jung So-min as magazine editor Na Young-won, who stays in a rented flat and struggles to make ends meet despite working for a decade.
She crosses paths with property investment expert Yoo Ja-sung (Kim Ji-seok), who isn’t just the obnoxious and stingy landlord who evicted her out of her home but also the new boss of her publication. Unexpectedly, they start to develop a romance.
