Though they don't get along with each other, as she is messy and he has a bad temper and an affection for cleaning, they agree to live with each other and Ji-Eun works as his maid in order to buy her house back. Out of a misunderstanding and Young-Jae's ill-fated try to make the love of his life, Kang Hye-Won (Han Eun Jung) jealous, Young-Jae marries Ji-Eun. They set up a contract for the marriage to last six months. During that time, complications ensue and Ji-Eun and Young-Jae become attracted to each other. Also, Ji-Eun starts to hold a strong bond with Young-Jae's family. However, Young-Jae's bad temper along with the romantic attentions of Yoo Min-Hyuk (Kim Sung Soo), Ji-Eun's handsome and friendly publisher, starts to create a rift between the couple. He wasn't the only one who was causing trouble it was also Kang Hye-Won who kept getting jealous every time Lee Young-Jae & Han Ji-Eun were getting close. Kang Hye-Won wants Young-Jae by her side 24/7 even though she loves Yoo Min-Hyuk. It made Han Ji-Eun feel bad every time she saw Young-Jae run to Kang Hye-Won.

He proposes to her, this time for the right reasons, and finally, they get married the second time and live happily ever after. Though they went through various obstacles, in the end all the trouble that they went through shows that they were actually meant for each other. Rumors claim that there might be a possible continuation of the series.

A story about love and heartbreak, sadness and self-preservation. A naive, cheerful albeit, somewhat of a recluse writer, Han Ji Eun (Song Hye Gyo) is swindled out of everything she owns. Not by strangers, but her best friends! Stranded in China, she is determined to get home with the help of an actor, Lee Young Jae (Bi). She borrows money from him 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. In an attempt to get her possessions back, she has entered in a contract marriage with Young Jae for one year. It is quite simple, until strong feelings start to develop. Everyone around them test the "love" Young Jae and Ji Eun have for one another. In spite of it all, Ji Eun manages to be humorous and endearing - even when her heart is breaking.

I find this Korean drama really interesting, funny, and sad to watch. You know how Korean dramas are, they cried like every 5 min..lols. But in this one theres a lot funny scenes, but yes there are also a lot sad scenes. The sad scenes obviously is on the love. The first time I saw this was with my sister. She is really into watching Korean dramas. Full House came out in 2004 but I saw this in 07. It was long ago, and haven't watch much Korean drama ever since my sister left to college. Since there is nothing interesting to watch in TVB right now, so might as well rewatch this. The drama has enlish subs, so don't need to worry. Haha, that what I read to when I watched it. It kinda wants to make me want to learn It's really good, I'll recommend it if you couldn't find anything to watch right now or want to try it. Or if you want to step away from some of TVB series right now. Its a good drama to relaxes you, after watching that tremendous series, Gem. Yes some how I put up two synopsis.

If you all decide to watch it, hope you all enjoy it. I did ^^
