'Monthly Magazine Home' is out, and it's one of the must-see rom-com K-dramas today
K-drama Monthly Magazine Home, starring Jung So-min and Kim Ji-suk, is out and we can't wait to see fresh episodes of this new rom-com. It is a heartwarming comedy about a magazine editor and a real estate property owner and investment expert.
In a recent interview, Jung So-min stated she is still comfortable to work with Kim Ji-suk again after eight years (from their previous drama Came to Me and Became a Star) and praised Ji-suk for being good at taking care of others as always. He also enjoyed this work very much due to vivid interpretations by So-min, and said he learned a lot about real estate in the process.
The story of Monthly Magazine Home introduces us to editor Na Young-won (Jung So-min), who, even after working for ten years, continues to rent her living place. One day, she encounters a cruel landlord and magazine publisher Yoo Ja-sung (Kim Ji-suk), who uses real estate as an investment tool.
The series builds up on a story that resonates deeply with viewers across genders and demographics along with an impressive supporting cast that includes Jung Gun-joo as photographer Shin Gyeom who believes on living in the moment, Chae Jeong-an as senior editor Yeo Eui-ju, Kim Won-hae as editor-in-chief Choi Go who works hard to rebuild the aging apartment for his family, and An Chang-wan as mysterious editor Nam Sang-soon.
The cast also shared what home to them is like. Jung Gun-joo described it as a healing place. Kim Won-hae thought it’s a resting place after work to be with family and relax comfortably. Chae Jeong-an believes home is a place to be just oneself and rest. Kim Ji-suk envisioned home as a place to recover after an exhausting day. Jung So-min cherished home as a place to refill energies and release all pressure. An Chang-hwan related an incident in the past where they had applied to purchase properties after getting married, but didn’t get selected in most cases, just like his character.
