Full House

Han Ji Eun, a naive, cheerful albeit, somewhat of a recluse writer, is swindled out of everything she owns - by her best friends! Stranded in China, she is determined to get home. She borrows money from an actor, Lee Young Jae, after coming up with a clever lie and plans to pay him back after landing in Korea, only to find that all which is precious to her has been sold.

Coincidentally, her home has been sold to Lee Young Jae and in an attempt to get her possessions back, she has entered in a contract marriage with Young Jae for one year. It was quite simple contact, until strong feelings start to develop between the both of them. As the people around them start to "test" the "love" Young Jae and Ji Eun have for one another. No matter, Ji Eun manages to be humorous and endearing - even when her heart is breaking.

This is story about love and heartbreak, sadness and self-preservation, but towards the end it has it sweet and funny moments.

This show has a very centric plot around the main characters. You hardly get to see any other new characters in the show, even if there are they don't stay long enough to make an impression. So in a way it can be boring just watching the interaction of 4 people most if the time. But if you can overlook that bit, it is a pretty sweet drama series with a tinge of funniness to it.
