According to a press release by SKY, Song and Han starrer “Saving up for Romance” (translated title), about the money-building adventure of two young people trying to make 200 million won, completed its three month-long shoot on May 16.
In “Saving up for Romance,” Song will play the pathetic college graduate Ji-woong who is always depending on his mom for extra cash while hardly earning a thing for himself while Han's chracter Hong-shil is the complete opposite of him, a ruthless penny pincher who denounces all activities that involve wasting money such as dating, going to the church or even a hospital.

“It was such fun to shoot the film. Han and I were able to click well with each other and I’m very happy that we completed our project without any accidents,” Song was quoted as saying by the statement.
“This is the film that can show you just how bad the image of a guy as cute as Song Joong-ki could become and what a colorful actor he is!” Han said, also expressing her satisfaction for the project.
