How To Buy A Friend

When Park Chan-hong (Lee Sin-young) is attacked by a group of bullies, his classmate Heo Don-hyeok (Shin Seung-ho) bravely steps in to save him.  The one thing he asks for in return is for Chan-hong to pay his rent, but there’s a catch – the money that Don-hyeok gives to Chan-hong is meant to pay for his daily private lessons.  Now, with nothing but time on his hands, the pair begin to spend time together and a friendship develops.
