That rare story of two best friends falling in love, The Bean Chaff of My Life is a funny, endearing drama about two people looking for the perfect one. Punctuated with the occasional musical element, it features singing and dancing in a cheery romp that tells the story of two perfectionists who overlook each other.

Eun Young and Gyung Soo meet in their early twenties when she is part of the campaignstaff of a candidate in the local election. Complete opposites in everything – personality, goals, and temperament – they clash and wind up going their separate ways. 12 years later, they’re now in their early thirties, and still, appear to be opposites in everything – except their desire to find the perfect mate.

Now, friends, they decide to help each other out in that quest. A modern-day comedy about love, marriage, and the pressure to find both, Bean Chaff asks the question: can the two people who could never imagine being together, can finally grow up and understand what love is?
