There’s Jung Ye Eun (former KARA member and Secret Love star Han Seung Yeon), who is completely devoted to her boyfriend and is very clear on what she does and does not like. There’s Kang Yi Na (Descendants of the Sun actress Ryu Hwa Young), whose popularity comes almost exclusively from her stellar good looks. And then there’s Yoo Eun Jae (Yong Pal alum Park Hye Soo), who is rather timid but has a very unique taste in men. Together, they navigate the many challenges that life will throw their way because, well, what else are roommates for?

Adding to the his tensions are Do Hyun Woo’s old college classmate (Master: God of Noodles star Lee Sang Yeob) and his lawyer friend (Gu Family Book alum Kim Hee Won), with the straight-talking workaholic writer Kwon Bo Young (international pop sensation BoA) rounding out the mess going on in Do Hyun Woo’s head.

Jo Jung Suk and Gong Hyo Jin star in a romantic comedy that broadcasts straight to the heart.
