A grandma with Alzheimer forgets that she has agreed to sell her house, not to one person but two. The two clashes but, maybe, sparks fly. One of the buyers has a brother who happens to have fallen for the other buyer's friend, thankfully it seems the feeling is mutual. (Source: MyDramaList) Edit Translation

Why ?

This drama is good if you don't expect : a storyline, character development or even logic plot. I mean, it's okay if you just watch it to empty your brain and to laugh just because there are too many dumb scenes and laughable ones.

Okay, it's low budget. And for a low budget drama, the production is not that bad. BUT. The acting : big nope, too much scenes where I am like "It's damn too fake", and it doesn't convey any feeling/emotion. The storyline : the whole plot around an alzheimer grandma who wants to sell her house is not " a bad idea" but everything around that is just random ; I mean, the girl and Din hate each other then after 5 episodes they get "married", we don't see anything about the gay couple (one episode, they don't know each other, the other they are in couple then the sister make them break ?), and so on. There is no logical thing...

So, if you juste want to spend 20minutes laughing about something that random and bad acting, go ahead. If you want a story and character development... Go watch something else. If you want a great lakorn with a gay couple that is airing right now, go watch A Tale of Thousand Stars - I wans't sure about this one at first but... Even the first episode make you fall in love with the story and the originality of the whole plot. Okay, there are still random scenes/dialogues that are not that great, like all gay lakorn, but it's still something great and the story is awesome ; the acting is really great too.

But hey, something that we can't take away from this drama : the ost is pretty good. I mean, it's not bad, it's light-hearted and really good to listen.

Not the worst ever, but really quite mediocre

This is not amongst the worst or the most incoherent series I have watched. I watched it because of the BL, and relative to the BLs being produced in 2021, it is rather mediocre.

There is something of a story--you know, there's conflict (a forgetful old lady agrees to sell her house to two different buyers at the same time), some development (the female buyer's brother and the male buyer's friend fall in love with each other at first sight, the two buyers fight each other, the old lady asks them to live with her for a week so that she can decide whom to sell the house to, the buyers fall in love) a bit of a twist (one of the buyers is offered a good deal to sell the house to another person), a rather exaggerated climax (the female buyer's brother leaves her because she tells his boyfriend to leave him) and a happy ending.

The series would have been better if it had just gone all-out nonsensical but it tries to be more serious than it should. The editing makes the story confusing. Some scenes are shown before they should (without any indication of whether it is a preview of the next episode or whether there is a flashback). To make matters worse, the BL couple is shown making one plan to get the sister to accept their relationship but somehow carries out an entirely different plan. Major issues with flow and coherence could have been avoided with a series that is so short.

In the end, the only character who is really worth watching is ............ the old lady selling the house. The lack of character development is fine because her character is the type that doesn't require it. And she's quite endearing in the way she loves her house so much she interviews the potential buyers so that she can sell it to someone who will care for the house well.
