This drama is about youths living in a co-living house together who want to be in relationships but don’t want anything too serious, and who want freedom but don’t want to be lonely. It is set to be a realistic portrayal of people in their twenties and thirties as they navigate through life and love.

A successful psychiatrist in his thirties, Cha Kang Woo (Ji Hyun Woo) could be considered by some to be the perfect man. Handsome and single, with a successful career, he has no problem finding women who are attracted to him. Unfortunately, his traumatic past has made it impossible for him to reciprocate anyone’s feelings as he harbors a very real fear of romantic relationships. Despite not wanting to date, Kang Woo still craves interaction with others, and as he’s intrigued by the habits of others, he finds residing at a co-living house to be just about perfect.

But life takes an unexpected turn when Lee Na Eun (Kim So Eun) moves in. A freelance copy editor who dreams of someday becoming a novelist, Na Eun sparks feelings within Kang Woo he wasn’t expecting. Generous to those she deems good and intolerant of any sort of injustice, Na Eun is a unique woman, who has, coincidentally, spent the last four years single. While being single doesn’t bother her, Na Eun has to admit that being lonely is no fun.

Despite the fact that Kang Woo and Na Eun prefer the freedom that comes with being single, they both agree that they’d rather not be lonely. Can true love blossom between housemates when neither seems willing to commit to a serious relationship?

    This sounds like a sweet story.

    Time I watch a sweet drama before I go crazy from watching two many time travel, past lives and spirits and ghosts dramas lately.

    Side note : Has anyone watched Prison Playbook? Bucketful of laughs there. Full of loveable prisoners.

  3. 3 : August 21 Says:

    Holy cow…. I can’t wait for the next episode😭 It’s one episode per week😭😭

  4. 4 : Dinopie Says:

    Will not be watching this drama afterall.

    This drama has beem placed in a different screening pack by the station I signed with. Way to do business ??

    Though I’ll get to watch it at no extra cost at all. But I am to register my interest. What? No, I am not too keen to do this. I would rather give up watching this drama.

  5. 5 : Kiriaki Says:

  6. 6 : Kiriaki Says:

    sorry, I meant Andreas, lol

  7. 7 : Ellyn Says:

    Drama ended with only 10 episodes [instead of 16] 🙁

  8. 8 : Silverswan Says:

    Not a bad drama. It is a pleasant and full of emotions. Great actors and actresses. I like the place where they accommodate all those single people and each have their own kind of way of handling things – failure and success. Let’s say this drama is average kind among so many
